I always wondering what if Keima meet a bugged game and he can't get through, what will he do. Answer: Chapter 17
reminds me of
game boy color - Wario II, the first hidden level was right at the start of the 1st one, just dont press anything for 15 secs and u go to the bonus realm

With a tsunderekko coming up, there is still hope, well at least for one arc anyways.

The ending for the honya-san arc was kinda meh because the kiss just suddenly popped out like a bad pimple on christmas day. The preceding arc also was a bad one, so depending on this next arc it may decide whether I will continue this series or not.

How is it any less interesting? Even the non capturing parts are interesting. Actually, Elsee alone would make it worth reading. Their uniform is really smart looking i think. I wonder if there will be game for this manga after it is completed.

Reading 16, 17 and 18 in one go...


Well I've definitely saw that ending of 16 already as well, but the real treat was how sweet the scene really turned out. It's unfortunate that the girls would lose their memories, but it's all for the better... I mean, can you imagine what would happen if they didn't?! Not even god could survive that scorn

Chapter 17 was very interesting As someone had said, Keima is just beyond hardcore to go to such lengths More than anything, I like the set up of the story, portraiting it as a rescue of a girl that everyone else has abandoned... In any other story, that would be romantic.

Chapter 18 is a set up for a new story, so I wasn't expecting anything grand yet...

I lol'd at hhow Elsee reacted to Keima's drawing despite him being serious about their topic. Who can blame her right?

The target girl, Kusonoki Kasuga remind me of Sakaki (AzuDa) and Tomoyo (Clannad) put together in one body. I lol'd hard when she glared at the cute kitten playing outside, poor kitty =/

Personally I do think that the "freshness" of this series has been wavering somewhat with the previous arcs but I won't be stopping any time soon

Chapter 20

I guess it is just me, haha

If the main character actually showed progress in development... then I'll be more interested. But he's the same since chapter 1. Maybe kissing hot girls isn't enough? Maybe he needs to get laid, or maybe he's actually gay and disguising it by saying he only likes virtual girls.

Well, I'll give it another arc, the cool beauty who secretly loves cute things is one of my favorite archetypes. So, I'll see what happens.

well you're not alone, i feel some of your pain now dont get me wrong i dont plan to drop this, its still enjoyable to a certain extent but after the great start of chapter one i was kinda hoping for more... something like more details to how he gets the girl to fall for him, more events that led to that. it just feels a bit rushed and i want it to be fleshed and built up more...

the between arc chapters are still a win for me but my favorite arc is still chapter 1...

You don't live 10 000 years in the game world just to cover up that your gay -_-;

But that aside, you shouldn't be expecting development on Keima this early stages... The story is about him helping the girls, and not about them helping him. To put it simply, there's no reason for Keima to have a change of heart at this point. But I guess that's what happens when you're a god...

Additionally, Keima wouldn't be Keima if he changes and accepts reality What made the character awesome in the first place would be lost if he becomes 'normal'.

Why not? Some gay guys get married and have kids to hide their sexuality.

In the end it is about the main characters growth otherwise he's nothing more than a tool.

I'm not asking him to give up on gaming, I'm asking for growth as a person. He's jaded by sheer ignorance. Experience with real people should allow his ignorance to fade. But apparently, all the experiences he has gained so far means nothing. I don't expect a full 180 right away, but after every "arc" he reverts back to normal as if nothing has ever happened. It becomes tiresome after awhile.

Because there are far easier ways to do it -_-

But forced character development is even worse.

You give development because the character needs it.

What does Keima need? To interact people in the real world? To fall for a real girl?? Why? Because that's what normal people should do?

Ignorance? I wouldn't call it that. He knows the difference between the real world and his perfect gaming world.

He dislikes the real world, but he has no problem living it out, this is proven with his success at 'capturing' girls.

What do you expect him to learn from all those girls? What could those 4 (now 5) girls teach him that he doesn't already know?

Sanity exist through socialization, if you were on an isolated Island with nothing at all, completely by yourself you'll eventually go completely mad. To socialize is to be human, not cause its "normal", hell primative beasts have a form of socialization, even otakus crave socialization. Why else would there be conventions and forums that cater? Some may say things like "I don't like people" blah blah blah, but thats a complete lie. If you really hate people you wouldn't interact with anyone in real life or online, you'll isolate yourself in a cave somewhere making love to a wild dog.

What he needs to learn is emotions. Emotions derive from interactions ( or for some emotions, lack there of ) with people. Experiencing first hand is completely different than reading or watching. He's showing that he's completely void of human emotions.
