The World God Only Knows III 2

Funny, I was just wondering the same thing!

The Attack

Last week we ended things with one hell of a cliffhanger, pun not intended. Contrary to popular belief the people that were in grave danger during a cliffhanger are not always just fine the next scene. Case in point, Kanon.

This was a genuine assassination attempt, and I really want to highlight that. Had it not been for the timely intervention of certain factors, Kanon would be dead.

Kanon got to keep her life, but there are repercussions. The magic Apollo used to save her is not 100% perfect and her life still hangs in balance. It seems saving Kanon will be one of the driving forces for Keima this time. 


My son did what? With who?

Kanon’s condition has given a Keima a situation he absolutely cannot take lightly and it shows. Like in conversation with Haqua and Diana. Keima tries to act casually, but he really can’t contain himself. This is serious and he knows it.

He shows a really proactive side of himself during this episode. Previously it was just waiting for the spirits to find him. Now, he declares he is going to be the one hunting the goddesses and even tricks his mother out of the house for some time. Then tops it all off with quickly narrowing down the list of suspects to five in record time and has already resolved himself to capture them in in just a few days. 

What do we call this five-timing? 

The Comedy

Something is different, but what?

Now, just because things got more serious doesn't mean the comedy is gone forever. We even get Haqua and Keima full time interaction now; so comedy really isn't lacking. The whole “I’ll becoming a demon” scene was hilarious. You'd think the guy would show a bigger reaction, but that's Keima for you.

Also, Yui. Her scene with Keima was gold. Not that Keima's "conquering" tactics aren't fun to see, but it looks like it was him who almost got conquered this time around. Yui has become a bold girl and may end up being Keima's biggest challenge for time being.
