Okay. So I was surprised by the Kanon OVA, although it was pretty much what I was expecting. An odd combination.

Basically I was surprised the way that they made the whole thing fit (sort of) into the canon.

Spoiler for Since I'm the first poster and some might not have seen the OVA yet.:


The plot was also different from the manga version.

However, the style seemed targeted at a younger female audience. The fanservice was toned down (I guess there was the Kanon shower scene, but other then that nothing). They even lampshaded in the episode that by Kanon becoming a magical girl she has gained a bunch of young female fans. Which is odd since I never thought that would be a periphery audience for The World God Only Knows, but I guess Kanon is really popular with elementary school girls?

Yet... they distributed it with the main manga... I still don't get how this will get to the target audience.

It seemed more like a test episode, to see if there was a market for this.

Anyway, the music was pretty decent for JPop (which I'm not a big fan of- especially the bubbly stuff Kanon sing). The animation was decent, but seemed to lack the polish given the first 2 seasons. One scene in particular had Elsie a little off model (reminiscent of Hayate Cuties actually). So that's a little worrisome for season 3.

Young nerdy boys like magical girls... I think...


Was expecting something really bad. But i was wrong, it did fit in the canon and worked a simple but good enough plot.

I want more chibi Elsie!!!

Frankly, I never understand the favoritism of Kanon shown by the author and production staff. To me Kanon is quite bland and nothing special, unlike Ayumi, Yui, Tenri...etc.

As a Kanon fan (she is in my top 3 girls of the show), I quite enjoyed the OVA.

Elsie was adorable, so was Kanon as a loli, and the plot handling the soul was different yet interesting.

And the OP was awesome I can't ask for much more . So 8/10.

I don't think she was favored until the anime.

Kanon sells The Merc, so it's natural to give her some extras to increase the income. Since TWGOK anime is just at the break even point, every little bit helps.

As for nerdy boys liking Magical Girls - they tend to like Magical Girl Warriors who provide plenty of fanservice, both in martial awesomeness and the innocent sexuality stuff. Kicking ass in all her finery.

The Magic Idol Singer variety however is almost always targeted at a younger female audience. Hence all the trappings of de-aging Kanon, and the plot of girls auditioning to be her little sister. I mean, just the tropes used in this OVA seem to be targeted at young girls, with male nerds the periphery demographic rather then the reverse.

Seems so. I was impressed at her singing part when she became her loli form for the first time (the part when she revealed the fake Kanon)

Nao-chan has done a good job, imo.

Well, while being a fan of TWGOK anime adaptation in general I hafta admit this left me with a big question mark over my head for much of the ep.

Dissappointed on the whole, but not bad - more "meh" than anything else.

Kanon is so cute as a loli *giggles*


I love the singing.

I only wish there was a series and not just an ova, Kanon is awesome.

Adorable. Loli Kanon was just cute.
Funny they could get Keima in there as well.

I never really liked kanon but this was ok. in fact, i think i should be thanking kanon since all her cds were the ones that made the goddess arc possible, or so I heard.

the best part of this OVA is loli elsie

Never really liked Kanon even in manga. Compared to other heroines, she's rather bland and her arc doesn't really impress me either. I would love it if they animated Hinoki arc, which is full of twists or Akari, whom become the foothold of Goddess arc instead.

Liked her song and performance as an idol though

The episode was pretty silly but the ED was amazing. That ragtime piano!

I was kind of hoping for more Keima x Kanon interactions like in the 4 Nin to Idol OVA, but I guess I should expect more from Season 3 then

Decent episode, although I didn't really understand how Kanon got magical powers. One possibility is the power of from Elsie's hagoromo. But I haven't really figured out if another person can utilize the ability besides a Demon.
