However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane, a derogatory portmanteau of the two words otaku (オタク) and megane (メガネ-“glasses”).

At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to “capture” girls. He accepts what is thought to be a challenge, and a demon from Hell nicknamed Elsee appears. She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching the runaway spirits. These spirits hide themselves inside the girl’s heart, and Elsee suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by “capturing” their hearts—making them fall in love. Appalled by the idea, Keima refuses after clarifying to Elsee that he is only interested in “capturing” 2D girls and that he detests reality. Nevertheless, with the contract already accepted, Keima would have to help Elsee no matter what; if they fail, both Elsee and Keima would lose their heads.

However I have read the manga, and I am very aware that this season will have a ton of action besides just delivering letters. So perhaps I’ll give this a shot. The trailer actually surprised me by how dramatic they are making it. XD And I like over-the top dramatic entrances so for the sake of having read the manga, I will take a look at this, but there are no promises for this series.

Genre: Shoujo, Slice of Life
Airing Date: October
Summary: The new series will take place several years later. The former trainee, Ichigo Amano, is now an adult, and the cast will add new characters.

(Don’t take this summary too seriously. When they say “grown up” that means they are now in high school. :\ )

Trailer: Episode 51 Preview (Contains spoilers if you haven’t watched the first season)


Team’s Impression:

Eva: HELL YES! The first season had a fabulous wrap up! But I have to say, I’m not so sure how great this season will turn out. Here Ichigo has finished her studies in Paris and has finally returned to Japan, now as a first year high school student. Obviously this season would have her doing most of the work. I would expect her to be a much stronger character.

Moe: Fluffy shoujo and baking put together. Two things that are a part of my everyday life; first season was decent, guess I’ll have to see how this one turned out. She looks NOTHING like an adult though…

Myst: SWEET!(Literally) Totally looking forward to it, I hope they make sweets that’ll make me drool again =D.
