The World God Only Knows – Final Impressions

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.

Rating: Very Good

    I liked this anime much better the second time around since it turned me off initially for some reason. The second season definitely ramped things up a bit and made everything a whole lot more interesting, which is good.

    I agree, I found the second season to be more interesting overall. Since there’s only 2 episodes left in the season with no real end in sight to the main story, we’re probably looking at a 3rd season? 🙂

    I would definitely love to see Kaminomi continue to be a long-running anime, mostly because 100ish chapters into the manga, serious plot elements start brewing.

    Also, I would hail Keima as being a true God of Gaming when he plays 24 ARCADE games AT THE SAME TIME.

    Oh, I hope they do continue the anime for it since I haven’t gotten far enough into the manga to see the serious plot elements start yet.

    Haha, spinning around on his stool playing 24 games at once is epic.

    I actually haven’t heard anything about this series or watched it at all. It is definitely sounds pretty interesting, and if you give it a “Very Good” then it must be worth checking out. 🙂

    Haha, the “Very Good” was mostly just because I liked the final episode. Nevertheless, it’s a fun and enjoyable series.
