Flag 73's cover have Elsea as her name. So I think her long name uses Elsea, while her nick is Elsie (based on the site), while Chihiro calls her Ellie.

This is exactly the reason why I said there isn't "much" official romaji: unless one romaji has been countlessly used thorough a franchise, it ought to be fine. But rare instances, especially from random goods that cannot be exactly called "official" in its strict sense compared to the manga, are definitely not reliable.

Even authors themselves can screw up big time: heck, it is also likely the author used the real name "elsee" but could only figure its katakana reading, not the romaji reading. So I'm not really giving full credits it should be "Elsea" but that's definitely the "most" official name among all of them.

Alright, so I just felt like asking, but all the games Keima plays / played are galge and not eroge, right?
Are there even that many galge's out there? 10k heroines, that sounds really hardcore.

... eroge is just a label for any kind of software with +18 content. A galge can be an eroge (but for habit sake, people say eroge, naturally talking about a +18 galge).
Considering the setup and the fact Keima is playing on the PSP, they definitely are regular galge.

Although I don't think there are that much on the PSP, there should be that much of galge around (if you factor 5-7 heroines per game).

A lot of people have commented on the number of galge he said he has played but his world doesn't have to be exactly like our world. I don't think it really counts as a spoiler but in the TWGOK galges are insanely popular in the game industry world wide, compared to real world where they are niche.

You really don't know how popular the genre is in Japan, do you?

No I have no idea, but I said they are a world wide huge genre in TWGOK, compared to real world where it's only mainly Japan and some fans outside.

The Sims can't be compared to a galge. I don't consider it an American version of a 'dating sim' at all to be honest.

Thanks for the answers, though.

Answers:

#1. Galge is really a loose term for any game that features pretty, anime-styled girls. To be technically correct though, you could say Keima plays RSG (Renai/Romantic Simulation Game).

#2. Yes, there are. Given that there are at least 4 "conquerable" characters in a game (Tokimemo 2 had +10), you would only need to play 2500 games... If you count the games from comiket alone.... What is really more hardcore is the insane rate Keima is capturing then...

Besides Keima's definition of galge is broader than what most of us think. He goes to a batting cage continuously just because the digital announcer is an anime girl character. Keima definitely plays more than just romantic simulation game.

One of the chapters in the manga Keima is debating inside his head of the definition of galge.

Unconfirmed. Some people say it's easy to have her fit in these 13 episodes, others say it's unlikely. I'm personally leaning towards the latter but hey, I would be happy if I was wrong.

Please help, question on story.

Since there is no thread to ask for questions, I thought of just asking my question here.

So based from what I understand, Keima is tasked to 'capture' these loose souls , correct? Let's say in Konan's arc, Kanon has/is? a loose soul. Does this mean when Keima 'captures' the loose soul, Kanon disappears in real life?

Sorry I'm kinda lost in the agenda of the story.

Is this the gist of the hero's actions?
-----------------------------------------------
Keima looks for loose soul > Purge soul (satisfy what it is looking for) > soul passes on to the other world > Human containing the soul (in this episode it's Kanon) continues on with life / or is human container already 'dead' but just came back to satisfy what it was looking for (in Kanon's case, popularity and recognition)?

If anyone can please shed some light on this. I'm really lost on the hero's agenda and the sequence of events in capturing a soul.

No. You got it wrong. You might want to watch the first episode again, but here is the summary of what we know so far:

There are "loose souls" (ie evil spirits) that have escaped from Hell. They then find girls with "a gap in their heart" which allows them to enter the girl and hide in her.
Spoiler for Why only girls? Not a plot spoiler, but extra info that hasn't been mentioned in the anime:


Elsie is tasked with recovering them. She has chosen Keima to help her her as her "human buddy". His task is to fill up the gap in the girls heart so that the evil spirit is forced out and Elsie can capture them. Keima fills the gap by making the girl fall in love with him.

A loose soul is essentially an 'evil demon'. So the good demon (eg. Elsie) are tasked to catch these evil demons. So the process is like this:
Elsie finds loose soul >> Keima takes the place in the girl's heart to drive loose soul out >> Elsie catches loose soul
The process of Keima winning the girl's heart is almost totally (sorry cant elaborate more here) erased, and the girl forgets Keima after the loose soul has been apprehended.
Basically, you're wrong. The loose soul is just like a spirit taking shelter in a girl's heart. "Human containing the soul" will just go on with life, but will forget everything during the time where the person/object takes the loose soul place in her heart
