I wasn’t really expecting much from this chapter but color me surprised when Wakaki pulled an awesome stunt like this. And who wouldn’t? After all the times he suffered and endured and saved people, this is the only time they are able to read Keima’s intentions and understand why he did all those things. Keima may have a committed a lot of atrocities from the girls’ perspective but he did it with a reason.
More so, to reveal that he considered them his friends is something that has really taken me aback. It’s quite refreshing to see Keima see them as something more than capture targets. For him to shed insight to the girls that goes beyond parameters or data for capture is an expose that allows the readers to see Keima in a different light. We see how far Keima has grown and have changed ever since this conquest business took place.
But in a way, this feels like a death flag of sorts. Will Keima be able to come back even with the help of the goddess? Will the world be saved?
