So I saw an ad for this at the end of . . . the second ep of Imouto, I think, and decided to give it a try today. I'm pretty sure I was going to check out the manga at some point in the past but ended up forgetting about it.

Anyway, just finished the first episode and I think I'll be following this.

How is anime watcher think of Keima up to this point btw? Because when i reached this point in the manga, i still disliked him. Just like this board, i was more interested in Elsie than in Keima or the girls-with-loose(runaway)-spirits

Just so those who may think Keima's character does not worth to be the male lead will try to stay for a bit longer (or check out the manga if you can't wait) to see why we prefer to refer to him as God rather than his name, and why he probably have won my favourite male character lead of all time

PS: also, if you think the capture was too easy and full of cliche, then stay tuned. Soon, you will get on the mediate level when "all hell broke loose" (no puns intended xD)

When Keima got smacked by the sensei, he wondered how his gaming was bothering anyone during class. That left me a "wtf o_O" impression, like... doesn't he has common sense?
But at the time he showed his capturing mode and I heard this line... "I can already see the ending!", I thought that he was really badass. And it turned out to be that he was a badass anyway.
2nd episode, he's as cool as before and that BMW thing was... funny yet kind of passionate. lol
Then when he was accepting Elsie as his little sister, his good side finally showed itself, for a moment.

Finally, I read the manga from chapter one to the latest update the last 2 days and I have to say... yup, he's god.

Oh, I know that. If anything, it's finally some minor justification for the KamiNomi sub-forum that I'm finally starting to think we might actually need (if only for a spoiler-able anime discussion thread). But I always (well, maybe not "always", but certainly from time to time) hear complaints in the source threads about adaptation discussion because there's always some source material fanatics who are convinced that the adaptation is the spawn of Satan, no matter how good it is, and will brook no discussion in their hallowed halls.

<faux_outrage>And I am offended at being called a "smartass", as I was clearly just trying to evoke some situational irony and inject a little levity to the discussion (being a smartass for the humor involved in being a smartass is God's work...no pun intended ^_^).</faux_outrage>

But I digress... It's going to get a bit sparse in this thread, since most of the posts so far seem to be about what little is different and how fast it's being adapted. About all that's spoiler-free are the 8546 image/avatar posts and the posts asking for spoilers... ^_^

Yes, then insisting Mio is 99% a certain type and applying his 2D-girl derived knowledge just to find out that reality is a bit different, netting him a wrestling match with the bodyguard

He did expect a rejection. But it was more brutal than what he expected

Or rather, I think he expected her to get embarrassed and beat him up herself. He did think she was a tsundere, after all. The unexpected part was how calm she was about it.

It's the House Technique. Just keep trying things that fail, until right before the end, when in a moment of clarity, it all comes together and you do exactly what works...

They did. Several people have pointed it out already, but that doesn't make it less funny.

If things go well, we'll have another . I can't help but think the author is a Penauts/Charles Schultz fan.

Don't read too much into it. The author is a huge fan of using art shift for homage reasons. Check out the Shout Outs under the TV Tropes page, as there are plenty more instances. Beware spoilers.

Oh I do read the manga ^^ (still catching up though), which is why i said if we're lucky we may reach the point where another Peanuts art shift happens and manglobe decides to keep it. I can't recall where it happened, but the fact it happened again made me think of what I said. Though you are right about the constant homages so it could be done just for the sake of it.

Hmmm... I don't remember a second instance...

EDIT: 1K GET!!

^ you just receive the 1000 post congrats

kami also shows dere soft side to elsie despite on what he all said to her. Well elsie is still clumsy and wash the pfp.

Mio is a 100 % tsundere girl from one view and I don't find the pacing problematic like the others claim or even dare to compare it to the manga because I find both interesting.

who's Charles Schultz?

The man responsible for this.

It makes me wonder if there was ever any relevance to Peanuts in Japan; all I could find was a old Japanese commercial though.

Probably just Wakaki's own personal referential homage; which makes him even cooler.

Seriously?


Anyways I've heard Snoopy is a bit popular in Japan. Heck I've seen him in a h-manga, a girl wearing panties that had Snoopy.

What?

You mean you don't know Charles Schultz, the creator of the popular Peanuts comics and the famous beagle in the world, Snoopy?

In the words of Charlie Brown:"Good Grief!"

I've never heard that he's any popular in Japan... actually, I've never even heard Snoopy being know in Japan at all.
Also, I've seen girls in all sorts of H-manga wearing all sorts of motives on their pantsu, but I wouldn't derive from that that a certain pantsu motive is popular
