quoteKeima Katsuragi, a second-year high school student, is an avid Bishōjo game player. He is known on the Internet as "The Capturing God" for his legendary skills to be able to "capture" any 2D girl in games. However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane (オタメガネ), a derogatory portmanteau of the two words otaku (オタク) and megane (メガネ-"glasses") and is considered nothing but a gloomy geek with thick glasses.
At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "capture" girls. When he accepts it, thinking it is an invitation to a game, a demon from Hell named Elsee appears. She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching runaway spirits. These spirits hide themselves inside the hearts of girls', and Elsee suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by "capturing" the girls hearts—making them fall in love with him and filling up the gaps which the runaway spirits hide in. Interested only in 2D girls, however, Keima is appalled by the idea and refuses the assignment as he has no romantic real life experiences whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the contract already executed, Keima has no choice but to help Elsee no matter what; if they fail, it is Elsee and Keima who will lose their heads.
quote Fatherbrain30Answering my own questions.There are some.Spoiler:
Why is the skull chieftain also a teenage girl? What the *bleep* does an old devil actually look like? Who's side is Keima's teacher really on? And what does that girl trying to build a machine have to do with things?
quote EnthPULL IT TOGETHER MAN, HE GAVE A SHORT THOUGHT ON AKARI DURING HIS FLASH BACK SESSION TOO.And Keima definitely recognised that little girl abd yet I have no idea who she is. At least Yui and Tsukiyo had flashbacks.
quote Elliot GaleUh... Aside from what was covered in the Tenri OVA, all of the information we got in the manga was contained in the same arc you just watched, answered the next arc, or unanswered. Yes, Enth, the goddesses remain inside the girls. Why would they leave? They didn't leave before. There aren't *that* many unanswered questions, I think. Are there Kanon?Oh, I'd place my bets on another season at some point in the future. It probably won't be soon, and I can't guarantee it would answer those questions, but it's not like the manga has stopped.
Other gripes aside, I think the biggest problem here was the decision to skip over so many things that happened prior to the Goddess Arc. They even gave up incorporating them via flashback after awhile. Maybe they just assumed the only viewers they still have at this point are manga diehards. :S
