Whats up guys,

Based off of many of your comments on earlier posts and reading the obvious buzz on the intrawebs, we are happy to announce that The World God Only Knows is now available right here on CR!

All you all-access and anime members will now be able to watch this manga-adapted series RIGHT NOW! For all you free members out there, don't fret! Next week at 11:30 am PDT you too will be able to see this week's episode for free!

If you've been hiding under a rock leading up to this season, and are wondering why all there's all this hype, here's a little break down for you:

Based off the manga series written and illustrated by Tamiki Wakaki, THE WORLD GOD ONLY KNOWS has been featured in the Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine since April 9, 2008.

The premise of the story follows Keima, a high school student, is an avid player of romantic simulation games. He is known on the Internet as the "Divine Capturer" for his legendary skills to "capture" any 2D girl in games. In his real school life, Keima is considered nothing but a gloomy geek with thick glasses.

Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "capture" girls. When he accepts it thinking it is an invitation to a game play, a demon from hell nicknamed Elsee shows up. She asks for his cooperation to help her in hunting evil spirits on the run.



These spirits hide themselves inside the lonely girls' heart, and Elsee suggests that the only way to force the spirits out is to "capture" their hearts, by making them fall in love and filling up the hollows which the runaway spirits hide in. Just the kind of job for the Divine Capturer!

Enjoy!

I really liked the episode but thought that the translations could have been much better. I know Crunchyroll subbers probably aren't familiar with the manga but it would be nice if some of the terms are used properly in future releases. First off, her name is ELSEA or ELSEE not Elci. Secondly, I really don't like seeing Divine One every two seconds - it'd be better if you just wrote Kami-sama or God-sama instead and in later releases Elsee will begin to call Keima "Kami-nii-sama". Thirdly, Keima is the God of Capturing, he performs Captures on the girls, and conquest sounds silly. Keima is also called otamegane - a combination of otaku and megane (glasses), if you say dweeb it just looks different and isn't an actual translation.

I'm sure there are more terms that I'll - and other fans of the manga - will notice later on. I'm not trying to be rude or criticize anything, I just would prefer if the subbers for TWGoK would take the time to read this and implement the real terms/names for things, I'm sure that many fans - including myself - would be tremendously pleased if the subs were as close to the manga as possible.

Thank you, ;)
Hunter.

Nice one dude i was going to write this one myself because i read manga as well and the translation in anime sound so horrible. Because some of them just can't be translated as Kami-sama and otamegane. Once they are translated them they loose the meaning and the touch they where supposed to serve. All us fans can do now is wait and hope it will be changed

With this summary it's now yet another I want to watch this season. Too bad I have to wait a week to start watching it though. Too much awesome anime to look forward to, the stuff ANN (Anime News Network) got, and then Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee Reverse, Yumeiro Patissiere Professional, and Sora no Otoshimono: Forte. Seems the best comes out around the Fall.
