Granted, I'd probably use what I saved to fund Maou's World Domination Fund via a self-euthanizing double cheeseburger from the local branch, but at least I'd be happy o_o

Only took one module of economics back in high school. Most of my personal-biases-that-are-colloquially-known-as-knowledge, I gleaned from speaking directly with business owners, the average consumers of the products my family sells, and reading the odd case study my friends lend me. On a side-note, it's amazing how keen a psychologist business owners actually are

The majority of the middle class I've spoken with don't buy into brands blindly. They tend to fall into two categories. There are those that choose them because of their quality-- or at least, perceived quality as there is this stigma that "branded/more expensive = better". The other group buys a particular brand, despite the price tag, because it caters to their whims. Brands, after all, are specifically constructed by targeting a particular consumer type-- most blatantly Shounen Jump, whose readers are mostly teenage boys.

To be fair to branded products, the whole point of having a brand is to build its reputation/identity. And, really, everything has a brand nowadays; I'm just not loyal to any one (except for my family's, but that's because they already went ballistic on my sister when she tried to use a different brand XD)!

As for why I (jokingly) conjectured company-sabotage and their playing into the gossip mill, have you seen American advertisements? They actually defame the competition in their commercials, and it should be readily apparent that the media is a very influential body. I'm actually impressed; I'd love to do the same, but different countries, different values...

Just out of curiosity, what is this economic standpoint you speak of, since you didn't explain it? Again, I'm not an economist by any stretch xD
Yeah on the movie I saw a few years ago an advertisement ad said "Pepsi when you don't have coke"

That thing is basically just broken beyond words and is practially one of those 'I win' button against ANYone for whoever that is able to wield it, and in this case, Emi.
Okay... maybe not everyone, since Sariel's ability can lock Emi down.
So, its rather the weapon that defeated Maou rather than Emilia. Well considering that the top Angels in Heaven wants it back, guess it is really HAX beyond belief.

More than a weapon. I think the angel want to recover the better half before the secrets it is hiding is exposed.

maou was a very weak goblin class demon (the lowest of low)
He was taught by Emi's mother Layla (don't know the real spelling)
He was also given a seed that would grow to become his and Emi's "daughter"
With the knowledge he learned from Layla and the seeds power he became the Maou known as Satan

That means the anime was a success because they are already announcing it already.

Also, for what I have heard, Layla mainly taught him things about life & stuff, basically a teacher; thus when he started growing strong and using force as a means he kinda "lost his way", this is something that he personally acknowledges later when he looks back at what happened.

not to be completely clueless here.. but have they really confirmed there will be a second season? I know everyone is pretty confident there will be, but I was wondering about an actual confirmation. (also, if "2chan's joke" is already answering my question and I'm just not picking up on it then i'm sorry haha!)

As of right now there is no outright official conformation so most likely now is the "2chan joke." But most of us hope and strongly believe there will be season 2 as it did very well.

I hear sells are going well. I quite enjoyed this series. So there are bound to be a second season.

The one thing I don't get is the complaints about the anime, there are numerous complaints that this series has no main antagonists and is not serious. The final episode erupted with complaints as a waste and few even wanted to one shot vol 3 in the last episode.

I'm having trouble wording this, but here's my take on the ending aha:

I think they made it a very SAFE ending.

Almost all of the issues in the show get resolved.. Maou and Emi start to develop a relationship of sorts with the umbrella scene, the bad guys all get taken care of, and no new enemy is introduced here.
It's Safe because if they don't get a second season, it's not like they had some huge cliffhanger at the end of this series that would never be resolved you know?

Either way, I would've liked a cliffhanger ending that introduced a new bad guy, but I can understand not including it. It would be embarrassing if they were like "LOOK OUT FOR THIS CRAZY EVIL" and then never got a second season going haha :P

I actually liked the final episode. What I am talking about are other people complaining about it, I find them unfounded.
