The World God Only Knows – Episode 1

Ryanime beat me to this series first post due to me having technical difficulties but I shall not back down!

Katsuragi Keima, a young boy who loves girls… that’s pretty normal… is what you guys are probably saying right now, but no he doesn’t love real girls, he loves the girls in games. He has already cleared ten thousand girls in dating simulations and is refered to as the God of Conquest in the internet/gaming world. Keima is eager to prove himself as the god when he receives an email from Dokuro Skull, asking Keima if he could clear a girl for him. After accepting, things become drastic-like, a gigantic gust of wind appears, blowing Keima into a wall and a girl gently floats down. She is a demon who has come to Earth to recapture loose souls that have escaped from hell, loose souls plant themselves in the heart of girls that are in distress. The only way to get the souls out is to replace the distress in the girls heart with love, for that to happen devils need a partner who can do this and that is where Keima comes into play.

Keima is Hard Core

Katsuragi Keima is a pretty interesting character, from what we know from this first episode, he feels that games are more important than his classes. Obviously someone who’s got the balls to openly play a game in the middle of class is someone who has got to be interesting.

Noo Keima, Its a trick!!!

Obviously, Keima goes all in blind with his title as God of Conquest on the line. His pride would simply not allow him to decline the request.

Elucia de Lut lma (Elci), Decends

I guess the only thing that makes her look like a demon in any way would be her head accessory, the skull. She’s now Keima’s partner until all loose souls are captured and if Keima dies so does Elci, we all have enough common sense to know that Keima wont be dying because he’s the main character and all but we can never be too sure.

As expected of a Hard Core gamer.

Well, this is rejection at its fullest, I guess this kind of reaction was foreseen due to the crazy leap Elci just took Keima on.

The first target is Takahara Ayumi, Keima absolutely rejects the idea of capturing her because he believes the Track club members must have their hair tied up and be in bloomers.

Head Acessory ON, Cuteness level skyrocketing

Well in most anime’s bloomers are the norm while in PE class, so I guess its ok if its for the track club too. What I really wonder is, why does the bloomer incident only happen once? If Keima wont recognize the track club if not for bloomers and their hair being tied up, why does he still go with the capture even though Ayumi’s no longer in bloomers for the rest of the capture time?

Who the heck would believe such a cheesy line.

The full line was, “If its ranking you’re worried about, You’re already in first place, In my heart.

After the kiss scene the loose soul comes out and Elci manages to capture it using a really tiny bottle. I wonder how that actually works, but since this is an anime I don’t have any real arguments to hold against it.

Holy $@#$ it worked!?!?

In the end, Ayumi’s memories of the capture is erased and Keima believes he can go back to his easy life style. Although from what we know, Ayumi’s memories should be erased but why did she blush when Keima congratulated her? Did she truly lose her memories? I sense alot of foreshadowing!


I like the series so far, the OP was great even if it might have been a rip off of Eden like Ryanime claims. I’d estimate this series to be on the top five list of this season, since I’ve watched pretty much every new anime that has come out already for this season. Although this anime’s going to only be 12 episodes, the second season of this anime has already been decided to be aired for Spring of 2011 before the first episode even came out, now that’s some great confidence. Keima’s going to have to deal with the Real world a lot now that Elci’s with him 🙂

I want a PFP!
