Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai II Episode 10- Nikaido-Sensei’s Route

Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekaii II World Only God Knows Nikaido

Nikaido was going to play a part in this series sooner or later. I just didn’t know that she was going to be a pseudo-target for Keima to use in order to get Nagase. Oh, and she’s probably one sensei whose route you’ll never be able to finish.

Don't we all have to think about that?

The back-and-forth banter between Keima and Nikaido is slightly entertaining I have to say. Nikaido acts as the foil in most cases while Keima says the outrageous things, and it goes vice versa as well. Anywho, this was an episode of revelations since we finally get to figure out what’s been eating at Nagase this whole time and it opens a path for Keima’s conquest.

He then opts to piss her off so as to level the playing field. How that would work out, I don’t know. He eventually loses his cool when Nagase attempts to get closer to him by playing PFP games. She gives him a lecture about real life and Keima responds by saying that she doesn’t know what she’s babbling about. Ouch.

Keima runs out of options and turns to conquering Nikaido so as to get a foothold in his relationship with Nagase. However, it’s all for naught as he’s forced to slave all day with little to no gain. At the same time, Nagase has an outburst when her students show a lack of passion for whatever subject their currently talking about. It’s then that Keima realizes something and with the confirmation of Nikaido, he learns that Nagase used to be on the school’s basketball team, which has been suspended.

Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekaii II World Only God Knows Nagase Jun NikaidoHaha, I called this as well. I just knew that there was some previous failure in her life that drove her to become as passionate as she is now, though it’s something caused by a completely different reason. I initially thought it was because she was passive and didn’t do anything, little did I know that the problem was the exact opposite. From what I can gather from the snippets of the past, her basketball team walked out on her since they found her to be unbearable. This isn’t unlike how the students “now” acted towards Nagase Jun.

Yes, you are. I love you loads, but you are, my dear Keima.

Funny how anime and various forms of media are able to make me over-analyze and extract meaning from even the most minuscule of things. The gaming dilemna (I don’t care what others say, I think “dilemma” is lazy) shown in this manga present two sides of a very real coin. But the important thing to gain from all this is that you need to strike a balance between gaming and real life, which isn’t that hard to do, honestly. Obviously, Keima represents one extreme, though it has granted him “god-like” powers of romance. Hurrhurr, I know many guys who would kill for his skills.

Out of a lot of the anime airing right now, this has got to be one of the most colorful, and flower-filled (Even beats AnoHana in the flower department, the irony). I’d hate to think how much time the animators spent working on those flowers. They look like a pain to draw, unless, of course, they’re all copy and pasted. That’s a different story. And there seems to be an inclination towards sunset scenes in this show; there’s a boatload of them.

  1. But the important thing to gain from all this is that you need to strike a balance between gaming and real life, which isn’t that hard to do, honestly.

    quite true but sometimes, even a gamer like me, despite my age, get criticized by others for playing childish things (playing my psp) and in these cases that I don’t think it’s still an issue of striking a balance between gaming and real life. it’s more of Jun Nagase’s issue of forcing her ideals, looking down on people with her own standards that it gets annoying. It’s not surprising how Keima acted in outrage at Nagase for what she did and this episode reminds me of how bias others truly are =/

    • Nagase’s pushy to the extent it irks people and makes them bitter, but what I was referring to was basically maintaining a balance between games and real life for all people in general. Not exclusive to Keima’s case, mind you.

  2. It was sad seeing a sudden change in attitude of the students towards our pretty Nagase sensei. Just an episode ago they were all like shouting in excitement when she greeted everyone in the classroom. But I wouldn’t be surprise though, as she’s a bit too passionate >_<

    • D:

      Nagase-sensei doesn’t deserve all that hate – she’s just scarred from the past. Or so I say, but yeah, it’s funny how a failure in the past can make you go in the totally opposite direction. It could even go to the extent that it becomes a problem in and of itself, overcompensation is a no-no.
