The World God Only Knows

….. Keima.

Poor Chihiro… I hope she will eventually recover from this.

Retribution time.

Really Keima? That was a pretty weak come back.

Yeah he sure had that coming. Looks like Chihiro’s dejection affected him pretty badly anyways.

Well, has God truly fallen after tasting honest love for him for the first time? At least Keima seems to know he’s fucked up pretty badly with his rejection of Chihiro. His next step is going to be interesting to watch, hopefully.

In any case, it seems pursuing Ayumi’s going to be delayed by Diana’s “winging”…. that was a pretty bold move there, our dear virgin Goddess :D

    sometimes I wonder why the anime is boring when the manga is so awesome…

    ^ although the character design is good in the anime, it’s the lackluster of hit or miss jokes that makes the anime boring as well as poor directing,, lack of character development for the protagonist,, and less Elsie, and I would like to add more but what I feel is that kaminomi should have a better director that truly grasp the concept of why is it popular with the manga. it’s not the capture girls that make the manga popular but the development of the protagonist and his interactions with the girls. In the anime they dwell to much on the girls that it feels forced.

    The anime was virtually identical to the manga chapters it covered. I seriously don’t get why so many of the manga readers hated on it so badly.

    I enjoy the manga, the anime did nothing for me.

    Production-wise, it was fine, backgrounds, animation, music etc were ok. I had issues with Keima’s voice actor (whined to easily, didn’t convey the confidence, and arrogance that the Capturing God should have.)

    My main issue thouh, was the whole thing came off very stiff and compartmentalized. The scenes played out like dull powerpoint presentation, with a graphic in the lower corner telling you how you should react.

    Here is Keima playing his games. You should laugh at him.
    Here is Elise being cute. You should D’awwww.
    And here is Keima, he sees the end. You should be impressed.
    etc. etc. etc.

    The story was fine, the storytelling was bland.

    I don’t understand the hate on the anime. I think that except for some filler chapters, it did way better than the manga.

    I’m hoping for more seasons because I enjoyed the anime a lot.

    I think its more a fact that you get to see a point to the plot in the manga, rather than blind chasing random women, in the fact of the goddesses arc. I still think Keima genderswap capturing himself was still well planned. I don’t think this is a series where Keima is expected to develop as a character, he hasn’t changed much from Chapter 1.
    In fact, everything he’s doing is so he can get back to video games faster.
    TLDR; If they do more than 4 girls in 1 season with time for side chapters, they may actually get somewhere in 5 seasons.

    I’m under the impression that Keima is still a god among men. Based on the last pages of this chapter, he clearly knew of his actions (as well of those around him). Given the Vintage threat, he minimized risk by unnecessarily involving others.

    However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t hurt by his own actions. Could he have handled it better, possibly. Then again, Keima wasn’t at his A-game. An unforeseen development that had huge affects on his psyche. As the series progressed, he clearly has opened up to “the real world”. Going so far as to have “a conquest” with initiating anything is a huge shocker for him.

    Keima, you have my condolence.

    Frankly, the manga wasn’t that awesome until Tenri appeared, then followed the by winning Yui arc, and now with the Goddess hunt.

    Probably the problem with the anime is that it’s adapting the manga too well for its own good. Manglobe could’ve added in a bit more flair to it, but I’m actually quite okay with the anime otherwise.

    I wish I could say that Keima didn’t deserve it. I really do.

    I actually enjoyed the manga from the get-go, and also really enjoyed the anime

    I thought it was cute that while he was down he was watching Elsie on TV. Oh how I miss her and her fire trucks ^_^

    The chapter title summed it all, huh?

    I’m almost certain that if the Anime had rush things abit, instead of taking it’s sweet time, we would have gotten the good parts earlier which are Haqua and Tenri’s arcs and would have made all the difference.

    Don’t get me wrong, properly developing characters is important, but ultimately if you don’t get to the good parts, people still won’t like it.

    You can’t really fault the anime for being dull in comparison, it hasn’t really gotten to any of the good parts yet.

    It’s only covered what, 1/4 of the manga chapters tops?

    We all know it would come to this as soon as we knew there were more candidates than there are goddesses. I just feel sorry for Keima since he has very little choice on what can be done in the set time limit. He tries his hardest to take all the damage from these “false” relationships. I know most fans think he deserves to be punished but I think he should not be hated — he has already suffered enough.

    What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger! Go Keima! I still have faith in the Capturing God!

    Herp Derp! Keima is such a genius!

    But not this time.

    Are you sure? It seems to me he’s doing this on purpose, trying to alienate the girls from him.
