I just finished watching the The World God Only Knows Season 3 Goddesses Arc. I loved the show. This does not seem like a full filling end to a franchise. Reasons below (Spoilers) :



So what do you think?

Will this be the end of the story for God Only Knows?

I have a feeling there will be additional OAV's or even a season 2.5 to explain the relationships between Keima and some of the Girls presented in Season 3, "Goddesses Arc" such as Tsukiyo and Yui. I know of the OAV Tenri-Arc which does exist. Hopefully more will come with that.

Will there be a season 4?

I hope so.

This is exactly what was I thinking if they do decide to make OVAs. Since Keima zoomed through what was covered in the manga from the first episode over a large amount of chapters, it would probably be the best. Oh and Yui's route was hilarious imo.

I think I heard from a manga reader(one of my friends) that the they're about to finish the manga after the Goddess Arc so there is a big possibility that there is going to be a season 4. The question is when?I can't wait. Any other information??????

Obviously there will be more. I don't care if people say the next arc in the manga isn't that good. In general, people like this anime, and the manga. There will be more.

So more manga is still being written? That's awesome.

I wonder if they will give us a counter as time passes so we know how many more loose souls are out there.

I doubt it. The author will only mention it if he;s either looking to showcase how good they've done, how much work they still need to do, or if he's looking on wrapping up the story shortly, or possibly taking it in another route that doesn't involve the capture of loose souls anymore, and it would likely come as a random unimportant number off the top of the authors head. The capturing of loose souls isn't as important to the plot as it is to the setting. Capturing loose souls is like the hook to give Keima a reason to do things but the actual important parts of the story are his interaction with the girls both human and non-human, and his and their personal growth as people. Anything that happens in the meta plot is to further these character relations which is the core of the series, unlike plot driven series where character relations and development are there to support the plot itself. In other words he may tell us sometime but it really isn't important information.

And yeah the series is still ongoing quite a bit after the point the 3rd season ended. Its a fairly long running series, and they skipped probably two seasons worth of material just to skip to the Goddess arc.

That ending was expected, but far less encompassing as I was expecting.

Season 3 gave us 50 new questions to consider, and as they answered most of them.

Keima's final talk wit Chihiro was essentially "Do you want to tell my your feelings and other shit Keima? Doing so would put a good end on the series."

And Keima's all "Nah, them bitches can wait for the OVA"s and Season 4...heck, I bet we'll get a movie! No answers! WA HA HA HA HA!"'

At least, thats what I felt.

Eh it might feel that way if you are looking at it as if it were an original work. That is how that arc ended in the manga however long before it became considered for adaptation, and it continues on from there as a continuous story. Its not meant to be the ending to the story is what I'm saying, rather a turning point into Keima getting more introspective on the consequences of his actions. The entire goddess arc was opening that can of worms regarding consequences and watching Keima juggle things and sadly letting something fall at the end. The next arcs are heavily symbolic relating to guilt and the consequences of actions by giving him an actual experience that helps bridge the world of games in which there's always the option to try again, and the real world in which you have to live with the consequences. I sympathize with viewers of the anime only and I hope they get to see more.

gawh! The grammar in that post, I was half asleep when I posted it.

But yeah, manga and anime that was the scene. It was all "we could end it here very nicely......but I got more stories to tell."

The anime and manga are no different here. If it was just an anime they might have ended it there just fine and we'd be happy with it.

The final scenes of Keima just leaving his room contrasts the previous season endings as he's not seen actually playing the games, but leaving his room. As I'll recall, and I'm not looking at it this moment, but seasons 1&2 ended with Keima going ladeladela in his game room, as the series revels in it's unabashed hilarity. I really loved the endings to those seasons, as they fit the theme of the show. Season 3 was intended to contrast them. It gives a slightly deeper plot. It seems like it focuses on more girls when instead it was all about Keima(at least secretly)

I sent these past few weeks just WAITING for Keima to break. He didn't, he managed to overcome the challenges aimed towards him, and that's part of what makes the show good to me.

You know Keima is only human, you know he's fallible. But that doesn't mean he's beaten, he's not overwhelmed. It got close, and if he broke we'd have seen a great ending.

But he didn't! It only raises the stakes for future seasons. I do hope they decide to cover the previous Girls in OVA's, at least a few. Shogi girl would be like, one episode...but Yui? Bring that to me. I've only read parts of the Manga here give me the Juicy details in some OVA's, you know you're good for it. Season 3 was awesome and introspective, but it felt far too early if you don't consider the time skip.

I want to see Keima break into tiny tiny pieces, thats what I want to see.

Yui was by far my favorite conquest in the entire series. It saddens me that I didn't get to see it in anime form. People just don't get how awesome their later interactions are without the context and events of the original conquest.

I could see the awesome shine through, but it lacked weight. The emotions that are prevalent throughout the arc are still here, and good enough keep interest. Yet without the experience of the other conquests Keima's the one who's left without his development.

I couldn't help notice the lack of a PFP throughout the entire season. It's easy to understand why it's gone, but when the hell did that happen?

One thing that drives me crazy about anime is love stories that don't go anywhere.

Well as for a possible season 4 I can see happening when the current arc in the manga is done, but I could see it being skip like the other conquests before the goddess arc since it's not as successful as the goddess arc and the next arc if it's big will most likely be season 4 from the anime's point of view.

Now I'm enjoying the Kaori arc which at the moment is the only interesting angle going on in the manga right now and personally if they decide to skip that and wait for the next arc then do a ova for it then I'd be cool with it.

I agree with arc's like Yui's should be covered in ova's of some kind, because Yui's arc was funny. Hell do ova's of the conquests they skip which would be satisfying either way.
