With the last episode of this wonderful show, The World Only God Knows, slated for release next week on June 28, 2011, one can only feel bittersweet about the whole ordeal. The entire season thus far has been a treat and I’m glad to see that it’s gaining popularity. The most recent arc dealt with Nagase Jun (up top) and we now get down to what’s been bothering her and how Keima gets around this particular problem.

"My arc is over?"

Yes, Nagase, your arc is over, and this week’s episode has us following Keima and Elsie as they tail Nagase to a wrestling match. In order to get her talking, Keima conjures up a fake ticket by way of Elsie’s raiment. This leads to a short scene where Nagase gets surprised and then depressed. Sensing the chance to strike, Keima pulls her down into his seat and tells her that they can watch together.Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai II 2 World Only God Knows Anime Manga Otamega Keima Katsuragi Jun NagaseThe two of them get closer during the show and Nagase is enjoying herself until Keima brings up the basketball team and asks her why everything went bad. Nagase is surprised and runs away after this. The next day in school, she urges everyone to join a marathon, much to everyone’s chagrin. When her proposal is met with disdain, she yells at everyone for being selfish and runs away, yet again.

D'aaaaww, Nagase's adorable

Strange how she made the first move

The one to find Nagase while she’s down happens to be Keima. He encourages her to keep on going and to disregard what everyone else says about her ways and passion. Nagase’s captivated by his willingness to put himself aside for her and is about to kiss him when the rest of the students come into the gym and apologize for their behavior. Her final day as a teacher comes up, and though she’s elated at the fact that the students have come to accept her, Nagase can’t help but feel depressed that Keima is nowhere to be seen. On her way home, she catches him playing his PFP and proceeds to thank him for all he’s done. Before she leaves, she even plants a kiss on him. And with that, one more Loose Soul is caught.

What'll the last episode be about then?

I just wanted to say what a great run it’s been this season for Kami Nomi, but perhaps I’ll save the rest for the last episode, which will come out next week. But anyways, there hasn’t been quite as much Elsie as I would have liked. I suspected that she would be a main character given that she was introduced early on in the series, and though she’s present in every episode, she’s been shoved down to the position of a side character. I guess that’s why we’ll never have an Elsie-centric arc any time soon until the end of the series when the mangaka wants to wrap things up.

"Gah? The anime's ending?"

Keima was right-on in regards to Nagase’s personal problems and saw right through her, though I guess it’s not that amazing given that most fans probably would have saw through it anyways. But then again, we have the benefit of hearing inner monologues, so yeah. Power to the viewers.

But anyways, I didn’t expect Keima to go about solving Nagase’s problems in the way that he did. Instead of urging her to tone down her passionate lectures a bit and become more understanding, he tells her to become more out-spoken about her ideals and to become more passionate. That looks good on paper and all, but people are bound to get annoyed with the constant life counseling that she’s been giving. I know I would. Keima says that people get mad when they hear ideas that somehow contradict what they think of themselves, and that’s true, and I agree. Unfortunately, I only agree to that point as Nagase was, honestly, becoming a tad bit annoying with her efforts to get people to better themselves. At the end of the day though, it worked out, so I’m happy for that at least

  1. Nagase’s arc was not bad overall. Wish I had a sensei like that. I wouldn’t mind at all ! But still, Chihiro’s arc is without a doubt, the best and the most challenging conquest for Dweeb! XD

    • Lol, our Otamega is a god amongst men. He basically bagged seven girls already in like three months. I respect him. :)

      Nagase wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the most interesting either. I loved Chihiro’s arc and all her cameos make me happy.

  2. I was expecting the next episode to be Marie katsuragi’s but seeing summer wars in the title, i’m seeing a lot of galge references… orz

    Chihiro’s arc is the only one worth mentioning for this season. I find her arc to be the cutest. Kusunoki’s just sucked… orz

    • Marie Katsuragi’s? You mean his mother? From reading the manga, there’s never been a chapter focusing on her. And also, having read it, the next one is indeed a galge-centric episode. :(

      What? I loved Kusunoki, even if Chihiro is more important in the long run…bleh

      • There was, it was her birthday which she thought that Keima forgot. The summer wars galge event wasn’t supposed to happen chronologically in the manga since iirc, it had to go through other arcs before that chapter =/

  3. Chihiro’s arc was definitely the best of the season, but I liked Jun’s arc quite a bit as well. Kusunoki’s wasn’t really that great in the manga either so…meh…

    I also demand a third season! but we’ve still got the OVA to look forward to~ : D

    • Anthem for the normal girl, like I’ve said many times before. Jun’s arc was “meh” and I thought it was cute for Kusunoki to deny all things cute, huh.

      Yup, there’s an OVA set to come out in a few weeks or months

  4. “…we need ideal endings” = best line ever.
    I loved this arc in general and probably one that spoke the most in volumes to me personally. Even though it was lacking much to be desired, still good.

    FYI: As Gelotaku stated there is OVA. It will cover chapters 54 and 55 which means that will be the Rock Band and Test arcs possibly: http://myanimelist.net/anime/10805/Kami_Nomi_zo_Shiru_Sekai_OVA

  5. i hate chihiro and will always hate her.
