interesting, I wonder if this means that we're close to the end already. I hope not, I like this manga quite a lot.

I feel like with the most recent development of the plot he could either make it end fairly quickly or actually drag it on for a really long time. At this point, I couldn't see this manga ending before the end of this year though unless we get a lot of rushed developments. He still needs to do a lot of stuff in the past it seems and I am sure there will be some stuff he needs to do in the future as well.

Most recent chapter was really nice though with its super detailed "recap" looks like things will be picking up now, maybe we will get to see the past versions of a lot of the other girls now.

The latest chapter was nice though it looks like he will indeed create a whole new future with the development in the cave had change.

I'm looking forward for the loli version of the girls he conquered.

With this setting, he probably will be the one who stir the likes, dislikes, hobbies or character of the girls. Leading them way to the desired ending.

still confused.... I think the reset is there to make sure Keima still in his track... if he miss it, then the 'future' won't be there

I don't know what will Keima do again... I think he already set everything and can go back to the future now...

So this entire series was about creating a Stable Time Loop.

Funny how this chapter has allowed me to explain to my roomies what TWGOK was all about in a few minutes.

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 hate Stable Time Loops. I prefer "you change the past, you change the future" not "change the past and cause the future you know". That's why i like Back to The Future series since it sticks to the former rule. (Except Doctor Who since both rules apply in that universe).

So there is A, B, Y...etc world line
he is from A line
And this world from B line
He need to make this world past match the world line he come from

In this time there is some game park but there is none from where he come from ( in his flash back there is not even trace of anything been built or removed)

So Keima has to move the time line away from the attractor field in order to make his future the active time line.

There are flaws in both. If the changing the past affects the future, then there's no explanation for why the protagonist(s) are still intact with no changes to their history or personality.
In the "Stable Time Loop" case, you have a circular flow of causality. The future goes back to the past, which in turn affects the future and that makes them go back to the past. In this case, there is no clear beginning that sets these events into motion.

In both cases there are parts that require the suspension of disbelief, and without time travel being possible in the real world, it's hard to say which theory is closer to the truth than the others.

Multiple Worlds Interpretation
would be able to solve this paradox, but if and only if this is an interaction (Keima) between 2 different universes, which seems to be Dokuro's explanation. Dokuro assumes that in this universe saving the goddesses would fail, and sends someone out to look for a universe where success occurred to recruit the factor that caused success. This would mean of course that this isn't Keima's "original" universe, he is being recruited to save create the "beginning" of another universe so that this universe will end up going along the same series of events as his own universe.

This of course begs the question if this event is a requirement for the original story timeline to exist. If indeed a certain Keima must go to an equivalent past of another universe to push it towards a desired timeline, and that Multiple Worlds Interpretation is the most viable solution to the paradoxes of time travel, then it stands to reason in the original story timeline a certain Keima intruded as well to create our story's timeline.

Does this make the goddess hosts childhood friends? (Not Keima's strict definition.)

It is ironic that while Keima is about to manipulate the girls for the future the girls are trying to imprint themselves to 7 year old Keima so he'll choose one of them.

This is almost like the chicken or the egg. As the girls could be the reason he is anti-social to females on account of some vague memory. His likes and dislikes shaped as well. In Yui's case she got bro treatment.

I think Keima is more likely to contact the goddesses, not his capture targets. He did mention how convenient it was for all the goddess hosts to be near him.

Keima could be the one who helped the goddesses select their hosts.

That was one thing that bothered me, how all of the goddesses were close to him and "within his net" if you will.

Points towards one thing : he's really born to be a god.

No I don't mean he is the vessel for Demeter! Get those impossible thoughts out of your heads!

Well it probably is the most likely scenario I wouldn't put it pass Keima to choose one who he is able to tolerate, care about and allows him to live his life as he please. A certain imouto comes to mind. But meh any end is fine here.
