Well, you are going from a mostly straight introductory episode to one that's full of chibi. Speaking of, the stream I caught was largely crap, so I'll save my final opinion until I see at least the raw, but I feel a bit less worried about how this show will handle humor after this episode.

For production reasons. It allows them to make more episodes with less sub-contractors and makes it easier to manage the timeline and budget. It basically gives them an extra 3 months to get ahead of the schedule.

And incidentally, the BD/DVD solicitations came out earlier today, and confirmed that the first "season" (such that it is) will be 12 episodes.

Bah. They had better end with the only early plot-important girl, then.

Not really necessary. Since the next season will only be three months away, they can end with a bit of a future tease (just so we know it's the "season finale") and immediately run a PV for the coming season. KamiNomi is segmented storytelling by design, so as long as it ends at the end of an arc (ie: not in the middle of a capture), it's all good. Besides, we know who the final capture target of season 2 will be from the first real PV, so it's most likely that the person you're thinking of will be bumped back to appear after her, in order to end that season in case there isn't another season in the works at that point.

On the other hand, if they do end season 1 with your "plot-important girl", they'll have to end season 2 with the other plot-important girl, and that will really throw things out of chronology.

The confession parts were the best.
And I found the ED pretty nifty.

I really don't see that having much impact, since most of the arcs are self-contained.

Honestly, I think ending each season with an arc that's actually relevant to the story is more important than strictly maintaining chronology.

The anime just doesn't retain the charm.
That's probably partly attributed to the budget, unfortunately.

Either way, pretty good episode.
I wonder if this cour will end with the 4 girls in the OP.
Hopefully, they'll fit some of the tangent stories in there as well.
Haha, the ED was rather weird.

EDIT: Here's my incomplete attempt. I think I've figured out the lyrics till the chorus but after that it gets really tough.
Spoiler for Engrish, Engrish everywhere.:
Here is what I eneded up with for the lyrics:

Thanks for the vid KROMEangel!
Just curious, what chapter could I find that ? If you happen to know?

Ooh, yours makes more sense. "our first real" can go both ways for me since I keep hearing "firstly" and sometimes the latter. The final line definitely sounds more like "Anyone could be a hero and heroine.", I can't hear "on the in or leave." no matter how hard I try, plus given context and sense-making it seems more fitting, and more audible imo. Great job deciphering the lyrics lol. I still have a ways to go before tackling Engrish.

Maybe I didn't watch closely enough but they left out the scene where Keima mentioned his mom filing divorce papers and instead had Elsee mention the mother going to a lawyer instead.

So, wait: Elsie ruined a marriage just to stay with Keima? Or were the parents not close to begin with?

Edit: I missed the line

Keima's dad goes overseas for trips and the fact that when confronted with the fact by his wife that he might have a illegitimate kid he said he had another trip so it makes it seem not so much Elsee's fault after all.

^ They didn't skip it. It was part of her phone conversation. The theory of Austin Powers as Keima's dad still holds water.

If it wasn't obvious enough, the feet attention in the ED is very much to my liking.

The Elsee scene transitions were awesome
I liked they way they adapted the more slapstick scenes too.
Although I'm not so sure about Mio's voice...

Spoiler for I see what they did there (spoiler for pointing out foreshadowing):


edit: loved the ed too.
