The World God Only Knows 02

The World God Only Knows

Oh god, Elcea is like 10x more moe in the anime compared to the manga.

The World God Only Knows

I mean… in the manga, she comes off more as a bumbling sidekick with a heart of gold…

….but with Itou Kanae’s HNNNNNNNNGH moé voice, she gives off a totally different feel.

And scene cuts like this…

…. really don’t help at all too.

Well, Keima alone can’t really make the show appeal to the demographics right? I’m in two minds about this moé-ifed version of Elcea. On one hand, she’s definitely a lot more appealing now… but it also conflicts with my impression of her from the manga too. Oh well, guess I’ll get used to it after a while.

So far, the show has been following the manga pretty faithfully too, barring a few coordination changes here and there. Even the best part of the second chapter is nicely done…

I really pity Keima’s dad. He’s pretty much collateral damage from all this, isn’t he?

The second half of this episode is purely chapter 3 and the anime is making good pace here so far.

Aoi Yuuki is a nice fit as Aoyama Mio, but the real fun only starts next week. Looks like each manga chapter will be nicely fitted in to half an episode each.

Official ending rounds up the episode, assuming that because it’s group song with the girls slated to come out in the anime. The song itself isn’t much to shout about but there’s lots of feet shots for some weird reason…. and I like it :|.

    Glad you noticed your wrong word order in the title xD

    About the ED: afaik it will be covered be each of the seiyuus, but there won’t be a group version o.O
    This ep’s ED is sung by Taketatsu Ayana.

    Itou Kanae ;a;

    I’m too used to “Elsee” from the scanlation I follow; Elsea looks okay, but anything with a C is too weird for me~ Has there been a ‘word of god’/”official” English spelling yet?

    @Crisu: On the official homepage to the anime, her name is written as “Elsie”
    http://kaminomi.jp/cd/index.html
    But I don’t know if the anime staff just decided that on their own, or if it is the official spelling.

    This is just my opinion, but since Elsie is just a shortened name for Elsia (or however THIS is written), I think that Elsie shouldn’t end with an “a” like in Elsea.

    Well, it’s slated for a 1 cour run until December, and then the second season apparently was leaked out to be starting next April.

    So far, I believe for this cour, they’re going to cover the chapters until the librarian girl.
