The World God Only Knows: Goddesses Episode 9 – Absent Lovers


I'm just a normal guy, chillin' on the internet in search of a place that I can call my sacred hang. What more can I say?

    I think it’s safe to say my favorite season will remain the first, but I enjoyed this episode. The fact is, in a lot of anime/manga, and generally fictional stories, we assume the hero can do whatever, like if smashing a building saves the girl, then it’s ok. But TWOGK makes us look at the aftermath, especially when you have someone like Keima, who thinks the world really is ideal and his actions won’t have consequences.

      It’s refreshing and yes, you’re absolutely right, for Keima this is one massive reality check. In the past it has always been (part one) Kiss Girl, (part two) Move On. From the very first moment we see him realize that these girls can remember him he’s conflicted, he himself having made a connection with each of the girls as time went on. But now he’s hurting these girls, these girls with whom he made a connection and the nice, neatly packaged, plan he made out for himself is going to sh*t. It’s going to be an interesting next few episodes and hopefully we’re going to get to see some more awesome character development.

        I can’t remember if you said you’d read the manga (I think you have), but if you’re caught up, you know this isn’t the only realization Keima has about his “methods”!

        I’m less excited for the anime, mainly because of the level of quality it’s had so far, but I like seeing it, just as a transition from the manga (honestly loved the first season so much that it makes me yearn for anime-TWOGK over the manga).
