Kinda looks a bit off doesn't it?

For comparison's sake:

But then why a Maybach Exelero? A car that never made to the production stage and looks quite ugly.

It's quite common for mangaka to choose cars based on brands they like/respect and use them for models, regardless of whether or not the car made it into production. They'll change the branding or design enough to prevent copyright issues. A good example I've seen in several different manga is changing Mitsubishi to Yotsubishi and drawing a logo with 4 diamonds instead of the iconic 3. Choosing a car that never made it past the concept stage could be another way of doing this.

 

Besides, they did say it was a customized model. ;)

I know that but couldn't the mangaka at least choose a better car that has more class and is more tasteful than that ostentatious and vulgar thing?

For example, the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé Waterspeed Collection or the Aston Martin Vanquish. Tons more class than a Maybach.

I agree with you there. Heck, I even prefer the Bentley Mulsanne to the Maybach, but everyone has their own personal tastes I guess. Obviously some people like Maybachs because they lasted until last year, but not enough to keep the brand around. Maybe that's why Komi sensei chose to use the Maybach, as an homage to the brand's memory.

None. Current count of Nekomimi lolis = 0.

A few boobshots and ladyparts, though.


Sabagebu.

It's probably to do with the lighting of the 3D model. Here's a better view:

Maybe personal preference/taste? Also the fact that it's the supposedly most expensive supercar in existence, which emphasises the cost of Claude's present?

I like the Mercedes Benz C63 Black Series Coupé even though it's not as super as Bentleys or Rolls Royces.

Nisekoi's references to Evangelion was mentioned a few hundred pages ago:

Akagame ga Kill! Episode 1

 

First episode gave me an OKish impression. The delivery was neither good or bad but felt a bit generic until the twist which piqued my interest a bit.

I'm not sure about this one, if episode 2 is much better than the first I will keep watching it. If it isn't I think I'll put it aside.

There's a new season of Space Dandy?
And somebody told me there'd be nothing interesting this season for me.

The manga is quite good, so hopefully the anime follows suit.
