I'd like to imagine that, prior to all this Weiss business, they probably all looked vaguely Romanesque. They're all distantly related to Jupiter after all, and no matter how many times removed you'd think the theme would remain.

Unless of course the Roman pantheon started intermarrying with other foreign pantheons, like that of Ur.

But that doesn't explain why Mercury is a ganguro.

If Keima is Jupiter's reincarnation, it would be hilarious to see him trying to avoid getting married to the goddesses' vessels as it would be incest.

Of course, that would be very fortunate for Chihiro since she won't have a competitor then.

Now let's make sure Minerva doesn't quip out about Kronos.

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.

I don't think incest is the problem nowadays (at least in anime/manga), see yousga no sora

besides, Keima's true love is Yokkyun

Any chance it's because our author knows that the planet Mercury is closest to the sun, and so assumes the similarly named goddess would be well tanned?

Obviously, celestial DNA features above average expression of melanin in their ethereal melanocytes, thus making divine beings more susceptible to tans. However, all of the other goddess' vessels spend little time exposed to the sun. Shiori spends all her time in the library, Tsukiyo goes out at night, Yui was sheltered for most of her life, Kanon lives the busy life of an idol, and Tenri doesn't seem like the outdoorsy type anyway. Ayumi easily spends far more time under the sun than any of the other girls, and so the goddess inside her soaked up the heavenly rays of the sun to become as she is right now.

You have obviously thought more thoroughly about this matter than I have....

Hi, I am quite new to this thread, so sorry for intruding anyway. Seeing that most people here are discussing more about Ayumi, Chihiro, and Mercury, which is OK, but I would like to express my concerns regarding Lune’s current activity. She seems to be monitoring the festival, which made me wonder whether she knows the current position of the goddesses. From chapter 161, I’ve included the possibility of Lune finding out the identity of all the goddesses except Mercury after she read the record from Haqua’s celestial robe. It may sound reasonable to head straight to the festival where four goddesses are gathered, but strategic wise, it would be safer to head to Tenri and Kanon first dealing with one goddess at a time. Even for a masochist like Lune, tackling Mars, Minerva, Vulcan, and possibly Mercury all at once seem reckless and rather stupid move.
On the other hand, if Lune doesn’t know the identity of the goddess so what did she found out from Haqua’s robe, and what is she doing here at the festival. Her holding the sensor seems to indicate that she is still uncertain about the goddess’s host. While most people are concern more about Mercury, I’m more concern about the other three namely Tsukiyo, Yui, and Shiori due to the sensor should be able to detect more powerful goddesses.

Apollo is the goddess of music and poetry, but Ayumi is book-dumb. So Apollo couldn't have fitted her name......

Being my fraternal twin DOESN'T mean you can take my goddesses!

You take Kanon/Apollo, Tsukiyo/Vulcan, Yui/Mars, and I'll take Shiori/Minerva, Tenri/Diana, Ayumi/Mercury. Deal?

I think I'll borrow Kanon for awhile. Don't worry, I am just entertaining her with my Happy Crescen- *gets tasered*

From Wakaki's blog.....



This guy is ANCIENT.

And for some reason, something tells me that Wakaki is trying to insert Miyako into the storyline, but somewhat can't find the perfect moment.



Hands off. She's mine.

Opps. I forgot Ayumi. So that will make it three then.

The harem consists of Kanon/Apollo, Yui/Mars, and Ayumi/Mercury. You can have the other three.
