Why don't you drop the political commentary, this is an anime forum.

Episode 2

When it comes to cooking, Satania sure doesn't have what it takes to be a student at Totsuki seeing that she doesn't know what kitsune and tanuki udon means, while her taste buds aren't exactly aligned with Earth's opting to cook some sort of fish from hell and having a tough time doing so. That was pretty hilarious seeing Satania try and fail like that.

Great episode. loved seeing Vigne getting mad and those threats were awesome. The girls were at least having fun together, albeit at each others' expense.

I really like the ED as well as the OP to this.

ps. Made it through the entire episode without CR player Fing up! So, that's a plus!

Another funny episode, but not as funny as last week in my opinion. The ED is nice, makes it seem like this series is more serious then it actually is lol.

Vigne is the one true angel; but Satania stays the best.

Weird. I found this episode to be much more consistently entertaining than the first episode yet. at the same time, I still found myself sort of bored. I really do think it's down to the individual gags going on way too long. They're funny in concept but just wear out their welcome too long before they finish. I do like that this episode felt less like "You liked Umaru, right? Well here's more Umaru!" than the first episode did.

Funny stuff. Some of the jokes went on a bit long. like that stuff with Gaberiel.

Satania is best character.

God, what the hell is going on in this thread? I came here to discuss the latest eps of Gabriel Dropout, not to discuss whatever the heck's going on back there on page 4.
Anyways, I liked the 2nd episode but it seemed kind of lackluster in comparison to the first. The jokes dragged on a bit too long for my taste. Nothing that will make me drop this series though. I wonder if Satania will ever get to eat her melon bread.

Pretty much:

Gabriel = Umaru (nothing new under the sun)

Vignette = Second Best Girl

Satania = Best Girl

Raphiel = Can drop dead already, lol.

I mean... Seriously, Raphiel is being annoying just for the sake of being annoying, that gets old really fast and is not even funny. I know she falls in the "I'm cute and super smart so the only entertainment I find is to bother other ppl" category, but even then, for that cliche to be funny it has to have a better motive. Not to mention the melon bread/dog gag. That dog can drop already too, LOL.

So yeah, pretty much watching next episode 'cus Satania and Vignette. :3

I only have one question: Why does a fish from Hell get to go to Heaven?

And you can drop the "western appealing anime" line. This anime is not made in any way for westerners or made to appeal to westerners. It is not Space Dandy with Funimation paying a lot of money for it, it isn't on Netflix or Amazon Prime which would pay a lot for western streaming.

....you mean like the Christian missionaries who came to Japan in the 16th century


you do know there is like half a million Christians in Japan right?

...out of how many million population?



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demography_of_Japan

Based on the census from October 2010, Japan's population was at its peak at 128,057,352. As of October 1, 2015, the population was 127,094,745[2] making it the world's tenth-most populous country at the time.



500,000/127,000,000=~.0039

Less then 1/2 of 1% of total pop. At this rate, they be singin' the gospel from the hill tops in no time...

Yikes 2 episodes in and the premise for the jokes on this show is already wearing thin for me. I was really hoping for more after such a great first episode too :/

Oh and the mystery fish is real it's actually a deep sea angler fish
