I finally decided to catch up on the first season of The World God Only Knows since I only had 4 episodes left anyways.
The series was pretty much what I expected it to be. Each of the girls he “captured” had a specific problem which usually took 2-3 episodes to resolve. Then it was usually 1 transition episode before another “loose soul” required capturing. The mini-arc format for each girl worked out nicely since it contributed to furthering the overall plot while also ending a subplot. However, some of the transition episodes felt somewhat filler-like with their content (episode 8), which is probably why I stopped watching for a while.
The main attraction would definitely have to be Keima. His constant gaming on his PFP in any and all situations along with his ability to suddenly switch gears into “The Capturing God” mode is what makes the show entertaining. In the final episode (12) of this season, we finally get to see his room and it was truly a sight to behold. I think that episode alone makes this series worth watching, especially when you get to see him play 24 games at the same time.
The second season, which is still airing, picks up right where this one left off with another 12 episodes. It makes more sense to just think of it as one 24-episode series since it really felt that way when I continued watching up to the current episode of the second season.
