The World God Only Knows 118

[scanlation by Red Hawk Scanlations]

So the item the Vintage agent dropped was more than just an accessory. The goddess detector should make the whole festival arc go much quicker.

… unless the author introduces some other constraint, like the goddesses being warned off.

Six goddesses, leaving four more. That’s a bit more than I expected. I wonder if all of them are in girls we’ve already met. Also, if I remember my Roman mythology correctly, four of those names are of male goddesses. That probably doesn’t mean anything, though, seeing as Apollo is one of the aforementioned.

Slash Diana being a part of the festival arc. Just as well, she would probably be more of a hindrance in that case anyway, and she might as well be hiding while the other goddesses are. Anyway, Keima has much more important things in mind right now.

Perfectly executed mood transition

Elsee, of all people, is going to being playing the role of Kanon to make sure she’s not missed. Stellar comedy, and good use of the fact that Elsee is a fan of Kanon’s music. Firetruck-themed concerts, anyone?

All it takes to change Elsee into Kanon is a new haircut. I was expecting Wakaki to at least recolor her hair. Guess Kanon’s staffers are just going to overlook that somehow. That bugs me a bit.

Nevermind, Haqua cast an optical illusion spell invisible to the readers. That’s still kinda lame. Oh well, magic is magic.

Next in the line of characters being removed from the main plot: Keima’s mom. Fortunately, this one is both plot-independent and totally hilarious.

Lest mom wonder why a stabbed girl is on her couch

This leaves room for some quality time (read: shipteasing) between Haqua and Keima. This is exactly as much setup as the dance festival needs. Start the main arc now, please.

Final Flash: Very funny moments in this chapter, and the setup part of this arc should now be 100% done.
