The episode is overall glorious, but my favorite skit is definitely the casual convo between Vigne and Gabby while the class rep is listening in on them. Spot on tsukkomi humor right there and very relatable as well, though in an ironic way. (Please don't kill off us single males!) lol

Most amusing. Tho why is heaven concerned about single male eating habits? Maybe they need to record everything about the universe...through angelic surveys?

Interesting that Gab caught those plates, maybe foreshadowing that she can do some good yet.

Vignette's efforts to stop Gabriel 'failing' too far' so that she isn't summoned back to heaven, remind me of the Screwtape Letters. If demons tempt people into shocking sins, they'll despair of themselves, turn to God and repent, and get saved. Alternatively, if demons tempt people only so far as respectable evil, while keeping their thoughts away from God, that person is on the road to hell.

2 of 2, it's getting to be a really good comedy anime.

The animation is nice, the voice acting is nice... but something about the direction isn't quite working for me. It's not really bringing the comedy to life enough.

Probably best example would be the skit with Raphiel sneaking into Satanya's bed. It just jumped straight to it rather than setting up some suspense/tension first.

Yeah, I can see why this "instant comedy" doesn't work for some people who prefer a more well thought out setup. It works pretty well for me, personally, because the way the scenes are directed have a lot of tsukkomi value and I find that genuinely enjoyable. Basically they present situations that kinda catch you off guard and make you immediately question them.

heh, the ED song sequence was a bit too sexy for a non-ecchi/harem series.

So the angels are basically a couple of trolls and the demons are generally nice people... Eh... I'm pretty sure this has been done before, somewhere.

Yea, been done before, but doesn't stop it from being funny and a good watch.

This entire series seems to be about showing the dark side of Angels and the light side of Demons, LOL.

I would argue that Satania isn't "nice" exactly, she's just too incompetant/pathetic/stupid to successfully be evil. Vigne, in the other hand, is a good girl. Everyone should love and adore Vigne.

They should also pity her for what she has to put up with.

With all the discussion about Gab's mysterious already-open netgame, why haven't we considered that God was responsible? Testing Gab with the opportunity to sin, as Adam and Eve were tested. If only her computer were an Apple Mac...

For some reason I can't stop listening to the ED. I don't know why... I just find it ridiculously catchy.

Seeing Gabriel/Tenma working was amusing...

I felt bad for the coffee shop owner though.


Satania's visit to the shop also bought quite an amount of humor. I love how she got thrown out at first LOL

I'm only watching this for the demon girls at this point. Gabriel is much worse than Umaru, I don't even care about the angels at all and the "look at me, I'm a totally worthless slob" comedy has already started to get old.

Gabriel was really insufferable this episode. Hard to tolerate that rotten personality when Vignette isn't around to smack her in the head when she goes too far.

Someone, anyone, please come rescue Vignette from the other three. Gabriel is becoming an irredeemable character and reminds me of another anime character who would just sponge off her brother so she could play games. What was her name again?
