A great start to the second season of the show, the new OP is nice, original was too good to better than I guess, though the new ED might grow on me more than the original I like it already.

You must have not heard many of Ami Koshimizu's roles to not be able to tell[Holo, Karen, Himari, or such] , though I wasn't positive it was her til the scene with the cat and calling Kiema a baka which gave it away , but I can't say I thought She was Yoko Hikasa XD.

After the 1st season, my expectations for the 2nd season were a little lower but so far the 1st episode has exceeded my expectations and I'm looking forward to the rest of it. Not to say the 1st season was bad or anything but I just expected more from it.

WOW... I never knew how skilled Koshimizu, Ami is as a VA, I knew she did Holo from Spice & Wolf and Tenma from School Rumble but I did not recognize her voice at all, maybe later on when her Kasuga, Kusunoki Feminine side is voiced.

Yes Kasuga, Kusunoki is a hottie, I never noticed her legs in the manga.

I hope this isn't a spoiler but the preview trailer of Kami Nomi release around September 2011 showed off all the girls that would appear in the anime series, it looks like they skipped one girl/arc.

Preview Trailer

which girl you ask?

o_O wow what a great improvement on the character designs compared with the first season, feels like comparing day and night imo, it's much closer to the manga now =D it makes me even more satisfied with this improvement now when it's my favorite girl turn to being animated, it's truly a joy to see Kusonoki animated and voiced by Koshimizu Ami =D

A decent restart, if a bit underwhelming. The Keima/Elsie chemistry, which was probably the best part of season 1, is still on display which is always welcome. The tough girl who likes cute things may be cliche but that's kind of the point so I won't complain. The main issue I had with this is the supernatural element that got thrown in at the end. Obviously there are demons and lost souls and other supernatural elements, but I found it a bit off-putting when the supernatural becomes part of the capture process. For me at least, a lot of the humor stems from Keima trying to apply VN techniques to a realistic world. Once you insert supernatural elements into that dynamic it feels a bit off. I would have preferred if they had kept the alternate version of Kusonoki only in her head.

Well he explains it in the first five minutes that the demons are the reason the gals start acting strange, so it's a given that the supernatural aspect would only be glorified further. That's a pretty silly thing to be complaining about given the context of this show.

Anyways:

Spoiler for ANIMEUPGRADESMISSLETITS:


I continue to believe that this season will be as fantastically done as the first, which to me is one of the best adaptations I've ever freaking seen. Can not wait for my Haqua~

I chuckled a bit in nostalgia when Elsie typed YUUTE IMIYA OUUKI... totally made me recall my 8-bit years with DQ.

A great first episode start. Surprised that there's only going to be 3 girls this season though...

Not a bad first episode... which is just a continuation of the previous season, so it really isn't a first episode though.
Girl this time is some mentally disturbed version Sakaki-san type. Which... wasn't that bad, especially the last part with her in her casual clothes, but kind of meh. Then again, the previous girl was worse.

OP was... kind of disappointing. It seems to try and be like the previous, but the vocals and visuals just doesn't seem as "divine" as the first.


Who did the end card this time? Love Plus' Mino Taro?
I wish they wrote the name down instead of having their signature. Can't... read... it...

Then it would be like one of those Naruto, Bleach, One Piece series...

I hope it gets past season 3 until I get to see Tenri.. but I doubt it, but I hope it does.

Of course there's nothing wrong with being like that yes?

A long adaptation for this series is what I WOULD like to see happen, but I have feeling these 2 seasons will be all.

Well, there are few anime that continue to have seasons until it catches up to the original source... And unless it is godly and internationally popular, the chances are very, VERY slim.

Especially when the producers/editors themselves didn't/don't believe in the project...

As the author stated in his short life resume in the 8th volume.
Manly tears.

I wouldn't but I don't like jumping ahead like that.

I liked this episode, especially the starting retro game scene.

Well it's because I regarded the 1st season as a composition of separate mini-arcs branching towards the different heroines and... well I just wasn't interested in all of them. If there is any key story element that I missed other than the 'gotta catch them all' stuff, I'd appreciate if someone can just fill me in.
