I also thought that as well.

LOL at the culture shock.

Let's see how Maou will back their customers from the evil SFC.

I used to ship Maou Sama with Emi but I think I might be changing my allegiance to Chi Chan. There was just something so genuine about her expressing her feelings to Maou that I can't help but root for her.

I don't usually like Chiho's character type but it's a testament to the series that I've really fallen for her character.

Although Ashiya/Maou is still my favorite

I just picked up this series and I'm loving it. Tsunderes are hard to get right since there is a delicate balance at play there but I think this series pulled it off wonderfully. I'd put it up there with Shana I think.

Actually the Chiho / Emi / Maou dynamic kinda reminds me a lot of the Shakugan no Shana triangle of Kazumi / Shana / Yuuji. I guess it's a standard tsundere formula, though I'm not entirely sure they are going to go full tsundere with Emi. There is still a lot of reason for her to hate Maou.

Overall though with excellent comedy, characters, and background story this series really hit the sweet spot. I'm really looking forward to ep 9

of course, this is after suzuno confirms that emi hasn't really join the overlord yet. if it turns out that emi and maou are working together, i'm sure she has a plan ready for "taking care" of them both.

did you just call emi a tsundere? woah that's a new one I don't think emi has a dere dere side, and emi definitely has no romantic feelings for maou.

She can be summed up as "Hello. My name is Emilia Justina. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

From what I remember, Suzuno did initially ask Yusa to follow her plan but after Yusa refused saying it was only her duty, but I was referring to the bit after that where Suzuno asked to simply help to which Yusa cut her off and refused again.

you do realize she is flat chested and self-concious about it? Watch her reaction in the scene where Mauo gets shot in episode 6. She's definitely a tsundere stereotype.

She's even protective of mauo to the point of "no one gets to kill him but me even though I can't bring myself to do it"

I just thought of something. Emi claims she still wants to defeat Maou but then she is also helping Chiho confess to him. What a girl!

How else is she going to hear the lament of his widow? Unless you count Alsiel.

She'll do it on their honeymoon. We know who the real devil is!

So I wonder if Maou and Alsiel are still immortal. I mean, their bodies are now human/humanoid and without fear they don't have demonic power to sustain them.

Probably not immortal, but since Alciel is over 1500 years old (and Satan is over 300), they probably live for quite a long time. Emilia probably has a similar lifespan, being half angel...

Tsunderes are full of contradictions.

Why is Emi got angry when Suzuno said that an innocent girl serving a house of men?

It was a tsukkomi play. It could be taken as if Suzuno was speaking rather highly of herself such as, "Why would such a cute young girl such as myself,..." Emi was baffled that she refered to herself in such a manner. "You said that about yourself?!"

Yeah, I remember the sub I watched with Emi interrupting saying "You just called yourself cute!?". Mostly because it seems really egotistical.

Got to catch up two episodes to get back on track with Maou-sama. This show continues to get more and more entertaining even after going through an entire arc of plot. Suzuno slays me as a character, and watching her continue to complicate Emi's life is quite a treat. :P Now she's abducted her best friend into this misunderstanding of relationships.

Because she was thinking that suzuno had no chance against maou with her "petty tricks". Emi believes that she is the only one who could, and should defeat maou. everyone else doesn't have a chance and will just get hurt or even killed.

also, looks like my definition of a tsundere is kinda outdated.

I-It's not like I'm changing my definition of the term for you all or anything~

o man... ep 8 is full of FUN

Chi-chan... why U so cute? LOL (or crazy....)

I laughed at the "around the TV" scene.

Moonbucks, is there a Planetbucks? (get it? Starbucks, star, moon, planet)

SFC vs McRonald? LOL


It's like Chi-chan gets more screentime than any other character... (making her the "main character" of this series, LOL)
