Well its true you'll never find a series where they'll faithfully adapt the source material (Budget constraints) I pretty much don't agree that they're doing a good job. First off the made filler episode for no specific reason whatsoever. You usually have those for a OVA or a special. Secondly they've been rushing the story pretty quickly raising a lot of questions in the process. At episode 7 the anime is already half way through book 3. What are they going to do for the remaining 5 episodes? From what they're advertising they're only using 4 novels. I don't think they'll be spending time to slowly animate book 4. What we'll probably get is more nonsense fillers and a unique anime ending.

If they where going to rush they should've either made it ten eps or adapted novel 5 as well. They should've of focused more on developing the earlier characters interactions because two episodes or a episode and half for one spirit interaction is pretty short. It seems a lot of people think this is a The God Only World Knows clone. Which it pretty much isn't. Kurumi should've of been saved for the later half the story. She would've of made a better last boss. What we'll get in the end is probably going to be something this series didn't deserve.
