The World Only God II Episode 1: Get Ready for Some More Cute Rants!

8 Comments

Now, if any of you have been following this blog, you may have noticed that everything is absolutely crazy and I am currently extremely late in basically all the series I’m blogging. Now why, must you ask, did I decide to take care of this show when the episode just came out, while all the others are already super late?

You see, from what I’ve seen of the Spring Season, so far it’s really traumatizing and nothing makes sense, this is even worse than I had expected at first. This show, however, is sure to be awesome, and so I basically decided to watch it and hopefully forget this trauma from watching disturbing shows this season especially the one involving a certain granny swinging her boobs around… I don’t think I’ll ever get over that...

Anyways, let’s get this started, shall we? This continuation starts off with a short summary of the first season, suddenly cut off by Keima who says “Didn’t you watch the first season?” and then the cute little game/summary is stopped and the opening starts I love you Keima! No one cares about first season summaries. Watch the first season if you wanna know what happens. Pfft.

😀

After the really sweet opening sequence, we get to see Keima and Elci doing as usual, arguing, arguing and arguing some more. This time, Keima is sick of conquering girls I can totally understand, and after pulling out some theory about them we had figured it out already last season anyways, at least I had, gets attacked by Parsley heads thugs and is saved by a badass looking girl who beats them up. The girl, Kasuga, turns out to be the next loose soul, and after a short scene we manage to figure out that she may look incredibly badass but she’s in love with cute things yeah, that was predictable. Apparently, those cute things include Keima’s drawings, and I have no idea what she finds so cute about them since they look so damn weird. That guy can’t draw for his life…

Here's the proof, if you don't trust me!!

Anyways… Upon doing some stalking observing, Keima decides he will become Kasuga’s pupil in order to approach her ohhhhhh my god, I totally want to see this… *evil laugh*. After hanging out with her for a while, Keima finally learns about her love for cute things, and how torn apart she is between loving cute things and being a martial artist she even splits into 2 O.o Woah. Keima tries to help her out, tells her she has to FACE HER FEARS!!! and in the end Elci proposes that they go on a date together Hehehehehe. They are forced to agree, and the episode ends.

Impression

Hmm, to start off this second season, there were many good things to this first episode, however there are a couple of things that also made me a little edgy on it. I’m expecting more out of this season than what they have showed me, that’s for sure.

To start off, most of the episode was very like the first season, however I must say that what deceived me the most was Kasuga’s actual personality. I thought it was very clichéd, and to be honest when I learned she was a martial artist I knew right away they would make her love cute things, it was way too predictable. It’s really easy to figure out how she thinks, and I really wasn’t impressed with her development either, I can see everything coming along a mile away.

Apart from this, everything was basically the same as last season, which is awesome. It’s funny, adorable, adorable and, most of all, adorable did I mention it was adorable? Just making sure. As clichéd as Kasuga’s personality was, that date idea made me laugh and I hadn’t predicted that one. I liked how Keima’s personality seems to be in development in this arc as well, I mean this date will probably be his first date not including the virtual world, and also don’t tell me that he won’t think Kasuga’s not cute when she’s wearing a dress that pretty. She looks stunning!

Talking about cute things, I’m surprised Kasuga didn’t flinch one bit when she saw Elci. I mean, come on, that girl is the most adorable thing in the whole freakin’ world! I was really happy to see her again, I don’t have much more to add but I just wanted to mention how cute this girl was I had to.

Now, overall, I’m not sure if this season will differ much more from the first one, I do hope so because I kinda wish Keima will go through greater character development, it would be nice for Elci as well. Yes, loose souls are awesome, however in the end it might become redundant and I want some actual plot! Some people keep mentioning that there will be some nice plot twists, and so I’ll keep my hopes up!

Next episode, it’s DATE TIME!! Get ready for some intense cute blabbing away on my part, after all the cuteness of this is one of the only reasons I watch this; Everything is simply adorable.

  1. Outside of Haqua, the new demon, this new set of girls would probably be ‘slow’ compared to the previous set (and the succeeding… 3rd season pls!). This is based on my experience reading the manga. I am hoping that the producers of the anime will add enough of their own twists to make it good.

    I’m thinking they can also do okay with Chihiro’s arc, but I am not too positive about Jun’s and Kasuga’s. I could be pleasantly surprised though. I actually didn’t like the way Shiori (librarian’s) arc was concluded in the manga (it was so vague) but the way they ended it in the anime was great.

    Of course they don’t get everything right. I disliked their version of that cake episode with Elsie in the anime and found the manga one much better.

    Anyway, I’ll go ahead and watch this now and see how it turns out. ^_^

    EDIT:

    Oh, just got back from watching it. The new OP is just as good as the first season and the quality of the show did not drop much (then again it’s the first episode so we’ll see down the line). I think I like the animated episode better than in the manga so I guess I don’t have much to worry about in enjoying the rest of the season.

    Also a note about:

    “Talking about cute things, I’m surprised Kasuga didn’t flinch one bit when she saw Elci.”

    She was holding back a lot from cute stuff, but you notice a momentary pause/glance when Elsie came out from Kasuga which eventually built up to her staring at the teddy bear when she was walking down the hallway, so you could say she did notice Elsie was cute. ^_^;

    • On the quality side, I have to admit that it was absolutely great just like last season. I really like the lighting effects they do on the characters, it’s anime so it doesn’t show as much but in this one I really like how it looks and there’s tons of places I want to screencap! Now, you know I haven’t read the manga, but if what you say is true I also hope they’ll change it for the better.

      Unfortunately, as much as I’d like to have a third season, I hardly doubt it will happen. Many people start getting bored of shows (especially romance ones) because after the second season the plot starts becoming redundant. That is a bit of a reason why I don’t read manga as much, because take for example Kaichou wa Maid Sama, I loved the anime but the manga completely pisses me off because it goes on and on for no reason. Maybe for this the plot is different though, I don’t know how it keeps going, but I’ve rarely seen shows having a third season (except maybe Zero no Tsukaima which I personally don’t think should have gotten a third season)

      Finally (wow, that’s a long reply XD), I must say that she better have noticed Elci’s cuteness. If not there’s something wrong.

      • //Unfortunately, as much as I’d like to have a third season, I hardly doubt it will happen. //
        >BD My my Myst, we’ll see if you’ll keep your word about that as the future episodes progresses. Considering how epically awesome the manga is at the moment, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did throw in a third season – but first lets see how well they’ll do this one. :3

      • I think you chanced upon a really bad title to try the manga from the anime (I mean the anime was nice, don’t get me wrong). The Maid-sama manga was literally all over the place and confusing as heck. The anime did a great job of putting some form of coherence on the overall story.

        Zero no Tsukaima, I’ll agree that the third season was just utter “meh” and I don’t even know how it got a 3rd season at all. From the great possibilities of having a decent plot/story and character development, it just derailed into senseless and sometimes even random fanservice that just looked out of place. :/

        As for The World Only God Knows, I already said that I enjoyed some anime episodes better than the manga, but the middle to later chapters where the author had gotten more used to things are pretty solid for me and very enjoyable. I look forward to new chapters of TWoGK as much as episodes of Madoka. 🙂

  2. Well, truth be told, the first major story arc would only start on a 3rd season and the main, main plot of the entire manga is still ongoing in the current chapters. It would be a pity if they aren’t at least give OVAs or Movies. 😦

    EDIT:

    Ah clicked post too soon. Sorry. What I mean to say is that everything we are watching now are actually just a buildup to a larger plot. o_O;

  3. You know, instead of making a new season, how about they make the 2nd season 24/26 episodes?Or maybe it’s too late for that. Then again, J.C. Staff pulled that crap on me right when I thought Maid-sama was going to end.
    I don’t really like Kasuga or Jun for that matter, so I hope their arcs are short (No offense). I just hope Chihiro gets better treatment!

    • If you’ve read the manga I’d understand why you wouldn’t like Kasuga or Jun (or Mio or the Ramen Girl or the Haibara) for the same reason (though I kinda do like Haibara).

      I’ll agree that I hope Chihiro (and Haqua) get the spotlights for this season, but I’m still hoping the anime adds enough to make all arcs better than the manga. Good voice acting and some nice animation could make Chihiro’s arc something to look forward to since it’s hard to feel the drama from it from just reading the manga. o_o

    • I personally haven’t read the manga, but I’m sure that 26 episodes would work well, because if they just make this 13 episodes it’ll most likely turn into just Keima conquering girls and the main plot will not be attacked (from what I’ve heard of everyone, anwyays). I<m really curious as to what that plot is… If they only pull off 13 though I do believe I will start reading!
