"Doll Roll Hall"
I’d be pissed too if I knew my boyfriend was sweet-talking the cute library girl and the famous idol!
bit overwhelmed with his ambitious plans. The horror of having the girls find out about one another is fulfilled when Tsukiyo and her confirmed goddess, Vulcan, catch Keima while he’s working on capturing Shiori. Vulcan is righteously angry about Tsukiyo’s treatment at Keima’s hands, and unlike Kanon, who didn’t quite believe Apollo’s stories, Tsukiyo seems to be working in tandem with her goddess. It’s kind of amusing to me that the girl and her guardian don’t exactly want Keima to give an explanation for his actions, though Tsukiyo does ask why he’s bothered re-entering her life. I also like that Keima doesn’t even bother to explain away his encounters with the other girls, other than a failed attempt to feign ignorance. It’s not necessarily the most admirable of actions, but it’s rather necessary to get Tsukiyo back on his side, so it’s definitely understandable. I also found it pretty amusing that Keima gets a tad desperate and loses his head a bit when asking for a kiss, as it’s more in line with his true personality than his various dashing masks. It’s a fun, if somewhat quick capture, though my favorite parts of the episode actually have to do with the aftermath.
also the most insecure. What’s interesting about all this is that it’s not Tenri complaining or otherwise upset, but Diana herself, which is both really cute and also kind of sad; after all, she’s not really Tenri, and developing feelings for Keima seems like a bad idea in the long run. Still, at least Kanon is out of immediate danger, and it looks like Yui is the next target on the list in the search for Mercurius, the only goddess who can help Apollo out of her self-induced situation.
On a hugely related note, Yui’s second arc also means we get to see crossdressing Keima. Why the heck isn’t it Monday yet?
