The Unexpected

If you’ve been following the current arc for this series, then… well, it’s obvious that this chapter is definitely one fucked-up mess.

I love violence. I really do. But for the first time, I find myself trying to comprehend the “Bad End” that Keima encountered in this arc. Kaminomi have been portrayed as a “violence-free game” (more or less). I think the worst form of physical abuse that one could receive from this series would be Lune’s self-inflicted wounds where she literally stabs herself or would orgasm at the thought of having injuries (yeah, the crazy bitch commander/whatever-rank of Vintage). But man, to actually see people dead and body-parts splattered is definitely an oddity with this series.

Just to be clear, nothing against it AT ALL. I just find the turn of events REALLY SURPRISING. If there’s a merit to how relevant this event was, then I guess we’ve seen how powerful Dokurou was during her prime. And the fact that this might be a battle where Keima is bound to lose. I know Keima has been able to pull-off miracles but if Dokuro resets that event for the LAST TIME, then the next run would be Keima’s last attempt to correct that past.

But that’s where the problem is. What does Keima need to correct? He wasted quite a number of lives in saving Dokurou but things got really complicated when Urara and her gramps came in.

As with shounen battles, the difficulty rating is going higher and I guess ,that makes things more interesting especially after Keima comes back from the past.

    Definitely unexpected. Most people’s first reaction to this chapter was “what just happened???!!!” ^^;. Well, I was surprised as well :p. I’ve no idea where this is going. Dokurou’s last statement seems ambiguous enough to be confusing as well. Got me more curious about what Keima will have to deal with next, and wondering yet again who is really pulling the strings (assuming there is someone :p).

    I was also wondering why Dokurou said that. Did she suddenly realize what her mission was in the past and how the heck did she realize that Keima came from the future? Having her start killing herself then realizing something that we don’t really complicates this entire ordeal. That and the Urara’s angle from all this.
