Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai 209 – The Shiratori Household
Well that was certainly a bit of a surprise. I’m not entirely sure why, but I never expected Urara’s grandfather to be… well anything other than a wizened old man. You’d think anime and manga would have taught me not to leap to such conclusions, but apparently they haven’t! So I guess the big question here is whether or not this is manga being typically creative with art style, or whether he’s not really Urara’s grandfather. I would certainly hazard a guess that the latter is more likely, especially given Keima’s shared suspicions that he has something to do with the devils. It’s a little hard to be sure though – it could, after all, be a bit of both!
With this cliff-hanger, hopefully we’ll be getting some more revelations next week, and maybe a little more understanding of what’s actually going on. As funny as Urara’s ironic statements about Keima’s adult-like behaviour are, it would be nice to finally have some light shed on why she lives alone in a large mansion and why Keima was not aware of her or her family before he travelled back in time (other than the name he discovered on an old photograph). At the very least, the appearance of Vintage in this timeline brings a promise for some big stuff to come!
tl;dr: @MoombaDS – A surprising (and humorous) revelation! #TWGOK
