Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai II – 10

「スクール★ウォーズ」 (Sukuuru★Woozu)

I called it! When I saw Nagase sighing last week, I knew that there had to be something traumatic enough that could have created a hole in her heart large enough for a loose soul to hide inside of it. But besides the unknown overarching problem of what happened in her past as the captain of the basketball team, it looks like things are only going to get worse from here on out.

After such a warm welcome from all the students, it was surprising to watch them all turn their backs on Nagase so easily. Who would have expected that the cute and perky student teacher would ever get hit with words designated for teachers who are actually heartless jerks? In all honesty, it felt a little weird watching things take such a drastic 180 degree turn all of a sudden. While it does ramp up the drama level, the whole situation still felt a bit forced. It’s almost like everything that’s happening is just to give Keima the opportunity to somehow escape the fate of those doomed to attempt the “teacher’s route”.

While I wouldn’t mind having this show span across a couple more seasons, seeing how the first season only covered about a month and there’s still an entire year left before school ends, I felt a little relieved that Keima did manage to find a way to skip the length involved with capturing a teacher. At first, it really looked like he’d end up having to do things at Nagase’s pace. You can’t really blame him though, since I don’t think I’ve seen anyone ever go through so much hassle just to try to understand Keima. While her thinking may have been a bit off, her actions were really cute. A pink PFP and holding it upside down? Genius.

With the conclusion to this arc set for next week, I’m actually really excited to see how Keima manages to deal with his current predicament. With Nagase still being his teacher, there’s an endless amount of ways for this ending to be super awkward. But at the same time, can you imagine if Keima managed to transform that awkwardness into something special? Imagine how popular Keima would get for getting together with the cute student teacher! Nagase isn’t that old and she is pretty good looking right? I suppose only time will tell, unless you’re a manga reader. In which case, I’d respectfully ask you to please utilize spoiler tags.

P.S. I wanted to quickly say sorry with how late my posts have been. I take pride in normally getting them out as quick as possible, but with work piling on 10+ hours every day with no day offs in sight, it’s been pretty rough. So to everyone, thank you for reading my posts even with how late they’ve been. Till next time!

    It’s alright if they are a little late. I enjoy them all the same. In the manga the scenario felt forced too, but I still found it cute!

  • June 15, 2011 at 9:21 pmLectro Volpi

    She bought a PFP just for Keima, she is amazing.

    Damn that Nikaido, she plays dirty… ugh…

    They should just go along with what Nagase wants and even if she is wrong she will be forgiven, why you ask? because she is beautiful!

    • June 15, 2011 at 10:01 pmLectro Volpi

      She called him ronery Katsuragi-kun; Hahaha! ah, how cute.

    Yer a good man.

    Teachers are hawt

    If he got with Nikaido-sensei that would be epic.

      That would be difficult.

    this is why nagase is one of my least liked capture targets. she’s overbearing with her passion. it didnt feel forced for me.
    heck, even jesus wasnt that overbearing with his passion for the people.

    ps. ALL of the girls have holes in their hearts, thats why they get a loose souls.

    • June 15, 2011 at 10:41 pmSoiyeruda

      Pretty much this. Only reason I saw that Nagase was popular with the students at first was because she was cute and had an outgoing personality.

      Afterwards, that personality of hers backfired simply because it feels like a bother to everyone else. She nags and has a tendency to force herself onto others to fix their problems, or force her own views on them.

      Looking at it that way, it didn’t really feel forced, though I admit that the change in mood was somewhat unexpected.

  • June 15, 2011 at 10:10 pmKarmafan

    The goth teacher (Nikaido) is pretty hot.

    • June 15, 2011 at 10:49 pmShirt

      I didn’t know she had a switch like that. Took me by surprise in a good way. I’m all for Keima going down her route too. (Uncensored OVA?)

  • June 15, 2011 at 10:19 pmZeruFenrir

    No mention of Nikaido? I am shocked, she won this entire episode for me.

    That said, it makes sense to me why students would complain about Nagase, someone who gets in your business all the time can get annoying.

    Keima hit the mark when he said “don’t judge me by YOUR standards.” Most Teenagers don’t like being preached at, even if the preacher is a hot woman in her early 20′s.

    • June 15, 2011 at 10:34 pmTez

      Agreed Nikaido is the ultimate goth sadist teacher. She should transfer to the school from MM. I’d like to see her vs. the nurse.

  • June 15, 2011 at 10:39 pmTorrgian

    True Nagase is being a bit over preachy but she is still a student teacher i did feel that the bipolar attitude of the students was a bit forced and their reaction was wayyyyyy to extreme..

    btw did anyone else notice that from the time she entered the class room the students were all meh about her then when she leaves they were all very agressive? loose soul properties perhaps?

    Tbh…id be perfectly happy with Nagase being the way she it itd be refreshing to see that kind of activeness as alot of teachers can be pretty lax and it may be fine for normal students but for people who are well above the average its a bit irritating

    The best thing about teacher’s routes is you get ripe, usually experienced and skilled female instead of some flat-chested, tsun-throwing, Kugimiya Rie-voiced loli…
    note – I dont have anything against lolis, tsunderes, and especially Kugimiya Rie, it is just the combo that makes me itch…

    • June 16, 2011 at 12:30 amSoiyeruda

      “The best thing about teacher’s routes is you get ripe, usually experienced and skilled female”

      Which I find quite ironic, since manga/anime etc. tends to depict teachers as 20-something singles who are either crazy about finding marriage, or just don’t care much about anything. At least from what I’ve watched :P

    • June 16, 2011 at 1:32 amcybersteel

      You should definitely checkout Amagami’s Teas=cher’s route.

    I’m pretty sure we enjoy your write-ups regardless of the time you post them. I guess you could look at it this way: The angrier people may seem shows how much they like/look forward to your opinionated views on the recent episodes. :]

    I’m just grateful you have the time to write them. Thanks and don’t worry so much. Your starting to get like Divine. xD

  • June 15, 2011 at 11:05 pmAria

    Really love this arc, kinda ironic when cute and passionate teacher like nagase loses her cool and finally snapped… :(

    For those hoping for a Nikado arc, let’s just say Show Spoiler ▼

  • June 16, 2011 at 12:47 amEliteF22

    Anyone else catch the Dragon Age poster in the background of the game shot when Nikado is playing his game?

  • June 16, 2011 at 3:09 amAn-chan

    Nikaido looks similar to Seto Ren from Seto no Hanayome ;)

  • June 16, 2011 at 3:15 amedru

    remember the saying that “too much of something is bad”?
    too too much doting on a person would make them dependent on you or you on them. too strict to a person will make them be angry at you or make you a tight person.
    I say their response was all fitting. they were just taken by her looks at first.

  • June 16, 2011 at 3:55 amdalman

    “Imagine how popular Keima would get for getting together with the cute student teacher!”

    only if people can remember his deeds ;(

    as for nagase’s age, she’s 21 and keima’s 17 right? that’s not much of an age difference in my opinon >:D

    a bit of a spoiler but, nagase’s problem is that she’s over-eager. i know a person like that in real life and hated her for a while because she was so pushy whenever (and i mean all the time) we were in the same group. i learned to appreciate her, now, because her pushiness actually kept me on my toes throughout high school…

  • June 16, 2011 at 6:05 amstarss

    Why isn’t this arc about Nikaido!!? XD

    An okay episode, I didn’t really like this arc in the manga either. Things will get more interesting. I hope that the anime continues enough to stretch to the current manga chapter, or at the very least, ending a season with chapter 115 and having another season soon coming.

    • June 16, 2011 at 9:03 amSoiyeruda

      From the looks of it, the Nagase arc ends next episode and I’m guessing the final episode will involve a Haqua appearance, though there’s a possibility for other things (eg. 13 episodes instead of the usual 12)

      Would sorta be a shame though, imo, because the Nagase arc feels like it should last 4 episodes.

      Also, considering how much they tried to hype Haqua, I’m a bit surprised she’s only appeared in 3/10 of the episodes so far.

      • June 16, 2011 at 1:24 pmTakaii

        Just purely going off of the episode titles, the last episode seems to be a non capture related one. I could be wrong but (´・_・`)

      • June 16, 2011 at 6:21 pmBreedo

        Also the first season ended on non-capture related character development. I’m hoping for season 3!

  • June 16, 2011 at 3:58 pmMatroid

    TAKAII, please don’t worry about being late. I am sure everyone here appreciates your service and understands that your personal life has to come first.

    Anybody else seen the PFP fail in this episode???

    Show Spoiler ▼

    • June 16, 2011 at 6:19 pmAyle

      The PFP has always been dual sticks.

      • June 17, 2011 at 7:38 amTonameki

        You’re totally right. Don’t watch the series for myself so I just assumed it was a fault. Thanks for pointing that out for me.

  • June 16, 2011 at 4:26 pmoutcast

    hmm so is it the end of the season again. It’s too short keima. Too short.

  • June 17, 2011 at 7:56 amBio D

    I laughed so hard it hurt several times during this episode. While I agree that Nagase may not be the best heroine so far (though I must say I love her hot bloodedness) the antics of the other characters (Hello, Nikaido!) more than make up for it. I must say I am enjoying this arc.
    Yeah, the student reaction changed waaay too drasticly after she left the room. I understood the feeling that Nagase was being too pushy, but the sudden hate was bizzare.

    • June 17, 2011 at 7:58 amBio D

      P.S. 20 bucks says Nagase is the one to kiss Keima. That’s been the pattern so far.

      • June 17, 2011 at 8:18 amamado

        you already won then.
