The World God Only Knows 3 episode 04

Oh for the love of all that is… Why!? We have basically been waiting for four weeks now for this whole Kanon issue to be resolved, and for a brief moment it looked as though that moment had finally come, but no… We’re still not done.

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.12_[2013.07.31_22.32.52]Keima has spent a lot of time looking for other goddesses by reconquering the girls from the precious seasons. We watch him since the very first episode and it seemed as though he hit the jackpot when Vulcan, the third goddess, finally revealed herself to Keima by attacking him in the library. It seems that Tsukiyo is the host and sent her to find out more about Keima’s intentions. Things got ugly when both of them saw how Keima was flirting with the ever-so-cute Shiori. It even got to the point where Keima had to beg to see Tsukiyo without having to worry about Vulcan and her annoying ability to control all sorts of objects.

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.08_[2013.07.31_22.33.14]Anyway, I was excited because it seemed as though Kanon had finally been saved from that deadly curse. Imagine my disappointment when yet another problem surfaced. It seems that Apollo, the goddess that resides within Kanon, has put up a barrier of her own as soon as the curse was lifted. This means that Keima’s job just got harder.

It’s been four episodes already… We’re nearly half-way and Kanon is still sleeping, yet Keima has once again been given the order to look for yet another goddess to help them. What’s next? Is he going to find that goddess and bring her to Kanon as well, only so that yet another problem pops up? Is this going to continue until he finds all the goddesses? I sincerely hope not, because I’m already getting bored here.

The World God Only Knows 3 episode 03

Why the hell would they make things so damned confusing? It was so simple… Now it’s turned into this charade of fake love and pathetic attempts to find a goddess. It was an otherwise great episode though, so don’t get me wrong!

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.16_[2013.07.24_21.59.56]It really is nice to see those old characters again. Well, old… It’s just nice to see them fall in love with Keima again. It’s almost like I’m watching the first season again, only this time he’s handling them all at once. This basically makes the guy a player, yet most female viewers seem to root for him… God, the irony of it all…

So we have Kanon on her death bed, we have Elucia trying to fill in for Kanon, and we have Haqua trying to fill in for Elucia (who’s filling in for Kanon). Putting all that aside, the Haqua-Keima combo allows for a lot of interesting scenario’s. We all know that Haqua is slowly starting to develop feelings for Keima. Watching those two interact is like watching a ticking time bomb; something’s going to happen.

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.07_[2013.07.24_22.00.28]Frankly, I don’t have much else to say about this episode. It was interesting, funny and kind of ironic (as I stated above). There’s a lot on Keima’s plate, obviously, but I think we’re only scratching the surface here. Keima may (or may not) have to deal with Haqua soon, which isn’t going to be easy with Nora, another senior demon colleague of theirs, in the picture. Nora, a busty girl with a nice tan, a decent set of brains and quite a few helpful skills, will undoubtedly hinder Keima’s progress if she decided to show up too often. So that’s something to look forward to as well.

The World God Only Knows 3 episode 02

I would feel terribly ashamed if I did not write about this show. This show has been a goldmine ever since the first season aired. I was worried about how they were going to keep things interesting, because I really wouldn’t want to see more of that soul-capturing stuff. I’m happy that Keima has found yet another job to do!

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2013.07.17_23.29.50]So yeah, Keima will now have to locate all the goddesses in order to restore balance to the world or something, how fun! It seems that Kanon, an idol that Keima conquered in his earlier days, has fallen prey to a diabolical attack that will claim her life within a week if Keima doesn’t do anything. So it’s up to Keima to track the goddess responsible and make her undo the damage and save Kanon from her untimely demise. There’s no doubt that Apollo, a goddess that resides within Kanon, will play a great role in all of this. I just can’t wait to see what happens!

[HorribleSubs] The World God Only Knows - Goddesses Arc - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.27_[2013.07.17_23.30.44]Also, I like how aggressive Keima has become. He used to be so laidback and reluctant to do his job when it came to capturing loose souls, but now he seems different. He took control of the situation and made almost all of the girls he previously conquered his targets. No longer is he doing it one by one, oh no, that guy is using the shotgun approach. I love it!

I don’t know though, maybe he’s just desperately trying to save Kanon? I can only hope that this change is permanent. It won’t take him much longer though, as he finished planting the ‘seeds’ during this episode. It’s only a matter of time before those girls fall for his strange charm once again.
