Aw man, I would've loved if Zelel stayed. Why does she have to be afraid of dogs???

Probably so Gab could continue to stay the way she is. lol
Zside characters don't get much screen time in this series, it seems.

I disagree with you all.

I thought the twist would be that Zelel planted the game on Gab's laptop, to make her join her secret guild of hardcore gamer angels.

I liked that Satanichia went along with Gab's lie of her being an archdemon...

It's not often that she gets anyone else to refer to her as one, so she might as well take what she can get.

A little late in posting. Watched the final ep.

Satania saying "I will humiliate you in front of your sister"to Gab. We know what that would lead to. - and Raphi was expecting it because she had the Christmas rope.

I somehow like it when da tenshi Gab uses her "good" angel appearance in meido uniform to try to fool her sister. Also did not expect her to use a surprise attack spit.. too bad it didn't work and she received the pain.

Totally, Liddo-kun! Both the angels are basically sociopaths. LOL such a good episode.

I would say more that they are both extreme hedonists. Raphi with her sadism and Gab with her net games. The main difference between them is that Raphi has to interact with people for her pleasure so she comes across as more functional.

I've never heard of that word before. I looked it up and you're definitely right!
Yes, I do agree that Raphi comes across as the more sociable one because of that but, for nearly the same reason, Gab is less frightening, by FAR.

The different mental illnesses/personalities is another reason why I find this show to be satirical/of a parody. As I've been told before, I may be wrong, but I still feel this way. How do you feel?

I think that they were going for a satirical good/evil switch to hang the comedy on. However going against expectation with "bad" angels and "good" demons has been done before by different anime as had most of the rest of their gags.

I enjoyed the show but it was very slight, unfortunately. If they had gone bigger with the angels' personalities they might have done better with disc sales.

Er, that's not good. Just how poor were the disc sales? I'm not familiar.
I did enjoy it as well, and that was my qualm too, funnily enough. Had they expanded more on the satire and the personalities, it would have been wonderful.

As for this being done before in other anime, I had no idea. This must be why I thought the show was brilliant. LOL The gags were new to me as well.. welp, I guess it's not my fault though. I was never straight-up told to go watch the other ones instead, so GabDrop was my first time.

Just finished watching the last episode. The Vigne parts were easily the funniest to me, well basically just the part when she was lying for Gabriel to her sister. After 11 episodes of getting to know the characters, you knew how much pain she was in doing it, and even then, it was her going through the flashbacks that cracked me up. I also got a kick of Gab sniping the demon host of the paid programming network from outside the TV and Satania's reaction. Overall, the series was what it was meant to be. My only criticism is the characters are defined by their quirks, leading to the gags becoming stale over time from overuse. Still, it was a nice show to watch weekly.

OVA was so funny. Vigne has more divine protection than the angels Even god loves Vigne.

OVA 2 is now available. What a feels train it is.

EDIT: Also found Vigne's Gabriel counting song. I think I have a new love...for girls' sleeping sounds.

OVA 2 was very sweet. And it played up the parallels between Satania and Gab again. They were the two who were really ready to do something regardless of the consequences, of course Satania was hampered by the whole demon thing.

With the compare to Konosuba i guess i could agree. I did enjoy both though maybe Konosuba seemed a bit more developed to some extent.
