With the three week break, I almost expect the strip to come back, and we open with Keima at his seat in class. Everyone is buzzing about what happened a couple weeks ago, and over the next several chapters a combination of flashbacks and hints imply how it worked out... but leave us guessing. Then after five or six chapters we notice that two of the girls in Keima's class appear to be pregnant...

Nah... they wouldn't dare...

I would've been pretty frustrated if the chapter did not have that bridge scene. Keima should've known that Ayumi would not be satisfied with just one question, and by taking this route we were sure that we wouldn't be getting the 'ending' in this chapter.

This time, I was a little bothered about the translations so I sought out the raws. And I'm glad I did. What Keima said to Ayumi on the bridge: "Ayumi, aishiteru!!"
Now, even for non Japanese speakers, anime watcher may recognize that 'aishiteru' means "I love you," which happens to be a form much stronger than the common counterpart 'suki.' Simply, we can say that if suki = like, then aishiteru = love. On a side note, when Ayumi asked her one question, she used 'suki.' While RHS's translation of 'aishiteru' as 'adore' is not a wrong translation, I still think 'I love you' is better. I feel that RHS had used adore instead of love because we are still not sure if Keima's feelings are romantic or not, as people can still say suki or aishiteru to the people you care about regardless of romantic feelings. But, I'm just gonna call that Keima said it in a romantic way. Because Ayumi deserves it.

So in other words, basically Keima's saying "I don't like you; I love you."

Personally though, considering Keima's character, I don't think "love" is really the proper word here. I think a more accurate term would be "cherish".

He's not confessing his romantic feelings for Ayumi, he's just trying to protect her and all the other girls as well. He cherishes them all because they're largely responsible for a lot of his development as a person, and he can't bear to see anything horrible happen to them.

That's just how I see it though. I know the shippers are going to deny my words very hard, but hey, maybe I'll be proven wrong.~

This would be the best way to describe why he tries so hard for them I guess. IMO to say Keima loves a single person just seems like blasphemy at this point... I normally prefer one couple over an other but the political approach is probably the best for God. But I'm still missing Elsie's charm as a character in these sorts of high tension situations as she has that why of breaking tension which I think would have helped this chapter as all 3 girls are best friends.

well, I think Keima's saying "I don't like you; but I need you" (in romantic way of course)

Read ch 186 last night.... *sigh*

Hrm ... three weeks vacation during Golden Week, eh?

*gnash*

Feels like Wakaki is totally trolling the readers (who are, of course, delighting in every step of the process while grinding their teeth in frustration, perhaps) ... well, here's a hoping that when he comes back things will resolve themselves soon.

Anyone have the original japanese script for what Keima said? The "I don't love you... I adore you" lines feel a bit odd to me.

I was guessing daisuki and aishiteru, but it was suki and aishiteru? Heh. Keima is such a sneak.

I wonder if this is a game line. Or if this is a phrase he could honestly say to most of the heroines in the game and real world.

A fair guess, but I still would really like to know.

Maybe you'll get lucky and someone will answer. I was planning to check the raws but Nochgo already did and found out what I wanted to know.

Here is what was said:

Ayumi's question: "Watashi no koto, suki?"
Keima's answer: "Suki ja nai."
Keima's line on bridge: "Ayumi, aishiteru!!"

Thank you. That makes things clear.

I made a sort of arial-like font of the language the devils/goddesses use. It's on the RHS Kaminomi subforum.

I picked up this series after seeing the first two seasons on friday. Tore through the manga...

And wow. I mean... The series seemed so lighthearted, I did NOT expect the whole turn into a life or death situation.

And god damnit this cliff hanger will kill me.

Really enjoyed the series so far.

As to who will win Keima in the end... My vote goes for Haqua. Possibly the most under-rated of the characters... But I also really like Kanon and Ayumi... and Tenri...

God, so many characters....

Thanks, that clears up the confusion.


So in the end, he's still in 'conquer mode' with Ayumi?

How odd it would be if that is Keima being honest with her.
