Remember though that thus far it seems that the "traditional" associations with the gods (Mercury - speed and Mars - war, etc.) do not seem to have held up thus far. Afaict the magaka only borrowed the names without bringing over much that "matches up" - as if to deliberately make it harder on the reader in the guessing game!

I still think that Ayumi has Mercury though, since I have been utterly "taken in" by the parallel, knowing full well I could be totally and utterly wrong.

It would be funny if Wakaki used two dices to decide which goddess belongs to which girl. You know, up to the gods and so.

If we're sticking to the four girls, based on who I'd want in the goddess-harem bloodbath, I'll go with Yui, Shiori and Ayumi (the way she and Chihiro treat Keima is similar anyway).

If eliminated girls are still game, I'd swap Shiori for Kusunoki/Nagase-sensei for the babe factor and just to see how Keima deals with having older girls in the loop.

Despite increasingly diminishing evidence to the contrary, I'd really REALLY like for Ayumi to be the only girl in Keima's goddess list to NOT have a goddess in her. Chalk it to having some attachment for the first girl in the series (despite me pulling hard for Tenri), but having Ayumi fall in love naturally with Keima would throw the goddess off-balance somewhat.

^I like the sound of that, but not sure how much Wakaki could devote to Keima dealing with a real romance (though obviously this will be important towards the end of the manga)

Rather have Ayumi in love with Keima + aware of the whole deal with heaven and hell - girls with goddesses do retain their memories even when switched right?

This story is probably not going to head this way but if you look at the story, quite a lot of Ayumi's events could be considered natural. One of the more unique ones is when she saw how much Keima cared for Elsie when Elsie was depressed. Though in a way too, if Chihiro doesn't have one either, the way Keima is forcing events with her is causing rather unique consequences. I don't know, out of all the classmates Keima has, Ayumi & Chihiro seem to be unique in their own special way (excluding Elsie who is already special).

I really hope that one of the girls on Keima's list actually has a sister and she ends up being a goddesses. We'll then see Keima trying to capture her while the girl on the list gets jelly.

Shiori maybe?

Then again, maybe not. BETTER NOT BE!

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

She already is. It is too late.

I may as well consider Yui as confirmed, and for me the last one is either Shiori or Chihiro.

I think we can already confirm two possibilities, namely Chihiro and Yui.

Chihiro is very likely since Wakaki touted her to be supported in the Vol 11 omake - it is easy to see who is who when the author starts making biased moves towards a certain character.

Yui of course, is the biggest element in comedy, so Wakaki might be putting her into the fray. Pandering to his fujoshi fans I guess who want to see male-on-male action.

No Shiori it won't happen! Stop looking this way like that!

Diviating from the goddess sweepstakes, I've had a nagging thought about organization of the Runaway Spirits squads. Why do they even need district chiefs?
Think about it, a "chief" position implies enough personnel to require someone to keep them organized. Yet, there's no one else in Elsie's district except for her chief. Similarly, Haqua is the only demon mentioned in her own district. So what's the point of having district chiefs with so few demons running around in a district?
And before you say that the districts in question may be quite big, do note that Haqua's base, her partner's home is reasonably close to Keima's onw home. That means Keima's place is right on the district border and one of the two chiefs is stationed well off-center in her district.

^Well, the part where three or four of them teamed up to capture Kusunoki-sis' spirit and Nora took command of them is a good example, I think.

But those were chiefs of other districts and they were differing to Nora because it was her district. There were more than just those chiefs, but they all appeared to be from other districts.

Maybe what makes a district chief different from the rest of the squad is that they look for Weiss and send the lower rank devils to take of some of them if there are too many for the chief to handle at one time.

God does not throw dice.

Also, the plural is "die".

Completely off topic but....

That was in the context of the Einstein - Bohr public debates, when Einstein was debating against the interpretation of reality in the frame of quantum physics. As he himself accepted later, he may be mistaken and conceded to the work of many quantum physicist who have demonstrated throughout the years that, effectively, the dice is rolling.

Also off-topic but although I typo'd, "die" is still singular and "dice" is plural. I wanted to symbolize two dice and ended up writing dices accidently.

Off topic, I always thought the plural was "dice" and the singular was "die"

On topic, Red hawk twitter said they just got the Jump raw 6 hours ago, I can't be bothered waiting any more, Maybe if I go to sleep and wake up in the morning the next chapter will be released.

I hope Keima returns to playing his PFP lol.

Vanish is right, I mixed them up (been making this mistake for fifteen years now lol).

I'm also surprised Keima is not showing severe withdrawal symbols, but surely he'll do a 48-hour gaming session once the current crisis is over
