Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai 218 – All grown up
Well now, this was certainly an interesting (and more than a little surprising) chapter! I had actually secretly hoped that Mio and Yui’s fathers would be in on the whole secret – it could’ve made for some nice connections to their original captures – but I suppose the idea that they’re being swindled by Urara’s grandfather is a far more plausible development. The reveal that he’s discussed the devils with others in the wake of his daughter’s apparent murderous rampage was a good one though – at least he’s tried to bring others in on the whole thing. I can’t help but wonder where the runaway spirit that possessed her might have come from while the majority were still sealed, whether this might mean that it’s a far more powerful one than usual which managed to evade capture or somehow break free.
But I guess the biggest surprise would have to be that ending. Wow. I can’t say I ever expected to see an adult Urara at all, let alone this early. I know a lot of people hoped we’d see her when Keima returns to his usual time after making whatever changes are necessary, but the fact that Wakaki has revealed her grown up form here (I assume the runaway spirit has a hand in this? Maybe it connects somehow to Dokurou’s de-aging too?) seems to strongly suggest to me that she will still vanish once this arc is over and Keima returns to the present. On this, I actually hope I’m wrong. I guess we’ll find out eventually!
tl;dr: @MoombaDS – Well now, that was a surprising development! In more ways than one! #TWGOK
