The World God Only Knows
« on: May 17, 2011, 03:54:44 PM »
Ok, I know there's at least 2 other people here reading/watching this and I've been wanting to discuss this series with someone for a while.

Summary from TVTropes
Quote
Keima Katsuragi is famous on the Net as "The Capturing God"; there is no Dating Sim that he cannot beat, no heroine he cannot capture while in real life he's known as "otamegane" and hates all real girls. One day, he receives a provocative email asking for his help in capturing some girls. He rises to the challenge, inadvertently making a Deal With The Devil to help Elsie, a low-ranking devil, catch runaway spirits. Apparently the spirits only hide in the hearts of troubled girls, and the only way to get them out is by making the girl fall in love. If he fails, the contract will take his head!
Thus begins Keima's daunting task as the human partner of a runaway-spirit catcher, which throws him deep into exactly what he's been dismissing: Real life, and more importantly, real girls.
^
Without spoiling anything, I'll just say that the story gets more serious later on.

Anyways,  about this chapter

Oh my God, how didn't I think of making this thread? XD

I love this series so much. Keima's the goddamned Batman of Japanese love comedy self awareness.

That's as good of  a question as why it took me so long XD  Well I guess it's because I wanted a thread worthy of our god of capture, but I got lazy and today I just said "oh to hell with it " and finally made it XD

Also hahaha, never thought of that comparison XD The god damn Keima doesn't sound as good though=P

[acid burst] off.

I have nothing against real girls, I just don't find them attractive.

I read some of the manga, when it first started.
I also watched the first episode of the anime.

For whatever reason, as much as I like this show/mango, I can't bring myself to finally go DEEP into it.

Why do I keep forgetting about this thread?

Anyways, last chapter was awesome. Shiori is still one of my favorites just because her imagination is [tornado fang]ing wild. XD

Yeah, why do you forget? I don't post here often because nobody else does D:

I'm enjoying this Shiori chapters, her trying to understand Keima is adorable and hilarious XD

This had to be my favorite panel of the arc XD

Honestly this is nothing new to me, however. Oh well, at least the "good" part is that fans will get curious on who the character is, and inadvertently watch the original series to find out more about the character.. Until the inevitable killoff.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

The third season is currently airing.



I have to say despite the cuts they made (and they made a lot of cuts, skipping a whole 70 chapters!) it's pretty good, the changes they make don't effect anything important.

I still hope that the skipped over arcs will get OVAs one day but I seriously doubt it.
