The World Only God Knows II Episode 7: Best Episode as of Yet

17 Comments

…I’m out of words. To be honest, I wrote this after my whole post, and I just detailed everything so much and talked about this amazing episode in so much detail that I don’t know how to summarize it anymore… This episode was one of the best I’ve seen in my life, and I’m not even exaggerating.

Continuing on with Chihiro’s now unwanted confession, it is the night before D-Day, and she is incredibly depressed, because it’s not to the guy she loves Guess who took her heart away? *evil laugh* Don’t ask the meaning of the evil laugh by the way... Keima, on his side, is busy preparing some more scenarios in order for Chihiro to succeed her confession, and apart from the fact that he has to get rid of her loose soul he doesn’t seem to give two shits about her “plain” personality and yet I still think you’re awesome… You mean child.

The next day, Chihiro doesn’t seem to have the heart to come in early, and so she hangs around, still incredibly depressed, and finally comes in and admits to Keima that she doesn’t want to confess. This causes Keima to explode on her, telling her that she’s never serious, and in the end Chihiro explodes also, and admits that she herself is just “a normal girl”, not special or amazing in anything, and that is what causes her to be so depressed.

With this, she leaves, and Keima realizes his mistake, which causes him to feel really bad and to get the loose soul out of her by himself. With Elci’s help, he finds Chihiro, then has a very serious conversation with her I’d rather not summarize it, it would ruin the greatness of it and in the end he kisses her in the most amazing way possible and Chihiro’s loose soul comes out. The next day, Chihiro decides that she will start a band, and Keima’s in his corner, much more sad than with the other girls.

This isn't just the little tingle of sadness we had before...

The last scene is between Keima and Elci, and Keima realizes that everyone is struggling against reality, and yet he doesn’t seem to do so, and he doesn’t say it out loud but I’m pretty sure that he’s realizing that he runs away from reality in his games, and finally admitting it.

Impression

I swear, I don’t think I’ve ever been so incredibly amazed by a single episode. If I was to give a note out of 10 on this one, it would get an 11 or a 12 at least, because that’s just simply how amazing it was. I was completely blown away by the plot, character development, animation and soundtrack of it, everything was absolutely outstanding and completely threw me off my chair.

Chihiro’s development was very surprising, I kinda knew that she was falling for Keima, however I was really surprised by the cause of her depression. My hypothesis was that she really wanted to feel love but in the end couldn’t or something along those lines, however I did not expect this and it completely surprised me. What made me love this even more was that it was something so real, so possible in real life, and yet very original and incredibly unpredictable. I also really loved her personality in the end. Chihiro is someone incredibly happy-go-lucky, and now that the loose soul has come out of her I have to say that she is my favourite girl so far. Her optimism and happiness is really contagious, and she literally made me smile at the end with her band and her walks to school.

The greatness of this doesn’t end there though. Keima’s development completely blew me away as well. First off, I have to admit that, despite his apparent “meanness” towards people in the real world, Keima definitely isn’t a coward. He admits his mistakes, and when he chased after Chihiro in order to repair his wrongs, I seriously admired him and I love that kind of personality, because there aren’t many people who can actually do that like he did.

Also, the ending. The ending, the ending, the ending… OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD. Keima finally admitted to himself and started to realize that the Gaming World isn’t necessarily the best. His epiphany is going down finally, and I’m reaaaaally curious to see what will happen with that. To be honest, with this already in play I actually kinda wonder how the manga is still ongoing, I mean if Keima realizes right away that the real world isn’t bad… Then again, this show surprises me every time an episode comes out, so we shall see I WANT A FREAKIN’ 3RD SEASON!!!!!!!!!!This episode also contained some top notch quality, and I was seriously blown away by the symbolisms and OST of the show. The rain falling, then the sun, Chihiro as she looked at the papers Keima gave her and then her cell, I absolutely loved everything, and the soundrack behind it all was definitely noticeable and added so much more drama and sadness to it all. The art was also really nice, and the quality of these technicalities was incredible.

She actually looks like a grown woman like that, Elci looking mature is also very pretty :3

Add to that the traditional humour of the show, Elci’s cuteness and the amazing kissing scene between Keima and Chihiro, and you’ve got one of the best episodes I’ve ever seen in my life.

  1. Just feel the difference between the climax scene of manga and anime

  2. FUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFU!!!

    FLASHBACK:

    Eva: It’d be awesome if TWOGK gets a third season
    Myst: Nah, it’ll probably be too much and not be that great.

    TODAY:

    Myst: I WANT A FREAKIN’ 3RD SEASON!!!!!!!!!!
    Eva >BD I told ya you’d want it.

  3. I always thought that other demon girl was gonna join up with him since elci is useless i was sort of sad to know that she didnt elci is making this show boring

  4. Keima is a stubborn one so you can expect him to hold onto his gaming world for quite awhile longer, though the manga has been slowly peeling the layers away on his personality and revealing his slowly-changing outlook on real life and real people.

    As I suspected, the voice acting and the elements of the anime (music, art direction, etc) all made it that much more incredible compared to the manga. I get the feeling (when I watch TWOGK anime) that the guys who worked on this really freaking enjoyed what they were doing and are probably fans of the manga as well.

    Haqua should be back briefly in the next episode. So far TWOGK anime has been a little behind the manga (for me) when it comes to the non-conquest arc episodes, but I hope episode 8 will turn out good. ^_^

    I assume that since episode 8 is the ‘break’ episode, Jun’s arc will take 9-11 and we’ll have episode 12 as the ‘closing’ episode for the season just like in the first season with Shiori’s 3 episode arc prior to the 12th.

    After that I’ll be curled up underneath my bed until a third season comes out. o__o;

    • i might start reading the manga but yea seems like Haqua is needed other wise lets face it he will fail

    • Are you sure the voice acting is good? I found Keima’s voice to be quite plain compare to its strength

      • Ah, I was referring more to Chihiro’s. I’m sure we’re all used to the way Keima’s voice actor does the character by now (still pretty good to me tho) ^_^;

  5. @ Eva: Yeah yeah… But you have to admit that the first season really gave off that kind of a vibe, I mean that’s what most romance shows do and I personally don’t like it when shows drag on for too long because most of them are better off short (not this one though XD)
    @Touma: Yep, the difference is really noticeable, that’s technically what anime shows are there for. I mean, what’s the point of watching a show that’s just based off a manga? THAT’S the point. When the animation really shows off and gives the story much more intensity :). As for Keima’s voice, I can’t say for sure, but I’d say it’s a pretty normal voice, however when he decides something it works out really well. Something too strong may have made it seem like he was unreal, whereas now we get more of a “normal guy” feeling who, on the inside, is absolutely incredible.
    @Sam1456: Elci might be a failure, but I’d say that for once I don’t mind her as a supporting character, and I like her much more than Haqua (To be honest, tsundere characters piss me off a little). I wouldn’t want her to become super intelligent, Elci is a bright, honest girl, and what I like about her is her innocence and kindness above all. Although she’s seriously stupid, I really don’t care.
    @Ryvrdrgn14: I just hope they won’t start stretching Keima’s personal development only for the whole thing to take longer, although I hardly doubt it, with the show as it is now. I really loved the technical stuff, as you probably read, and I really, really, really want a third season to come out. If it doesn’t, I might just curl up under my bed just like you o_o.

    Thanks for all the comments guys, and sorry for the humongous reply! XD

    • BEHOLD, MYST’S WALL OF TEXT!!!
      *SHOT*

      • Hey, you guys are the ones who commented like crazy in a single day O.o I didn’t have time to read them one at a time, everything was there already lol XD
        And what the hell do you have against my wall of text, huh? *stare*

    • well dude I dont mind elci besides her stupidity but am just saying for battle shes not good thats why he would fail and that why haqua is needed

      • sorry about that, in a way I guess it’s true, but then again Keima is so great that right now he doesn’t need much help… I like how everything is being developed around him and only his ideas, because someone else might just get in the way… Anyways, we’ll have to see what happens, I mean this show never stops surprising me…
        P.S.: I was just commenting and I might have misunderstood, no need to get angry, after all this is a blog and it’s normal for us to have different opinions.

  6. “I get the feeling (when I watch TWOGK anime) that the guys who worked on this really freaking enjoyed what they were doing and are probably fans of the manga as well.” – I think the same.

    If the anime is gonna be like the manga, already exists enough plot for 4 seasons. I really want to watch ‘Yokkyun’ in the anime because I really like the pure love of Keima towards this character.

    Nice review, I love this blog (Although my english it’s not the best)

  7. nice review. this episode was indeed awesome XD
    hopefully if they do a 3rd Season they could do more than 12 episodes ^^

  8. WELLLL, what I’m hoping right now is that this second season lasts a lot longer than 12 episodes. I checked, and right now, they do not have yet a limit of episodes and so maybe they plan to make it longer than 12 episodes. I might just be hoping for nothing, but since they didn’t call out their limit yet I’m curious and wonder if they’re not going to make it last longer since everyone likes the show so much…
    I can always hope, can I? 🙂 And if that doesn’t happen, my thoughts are that a 3rd season is gonna be there for sure. I mean, so far I haven’t had a single person who doesn’t like this show.
