Third chapter since Tenri brought the letter and we still don't know the contents.
I wish Wakaki would get to the point like he used too.
Dragging for the sake of dragging.
The letter is blank.
yup. Starting to sound like a broken record here when I mention this arc's problems with pacing.
he has stopped doing that since the beginning of the goddess arc
On the bright side, it makes me so happy whenever Shiori and Tsukiyo appear.
>a letter came for you
>"GET YOUR TITS OUT FOR THE ONII-CHAN"
>Shiori and Tsukiyo
Wakaki , you know buddy, this letter thing isn't funny, it's tedious and makes me angry
I think we basically know the contents of the letter already. It's just explaining the situation. The real importance of it is how the girls react, which we got a taste of with Ayumi
This arc is ass and I still don't know why I'm still reading it.
More to come yet.
I predict it's going to say Abracadabra or something, then Keima will be back in his proper body.
End this shit already for fucks sake.
Why? True it may be slow but more story is progressing than what Hayate has done in 200+ chapters.
Why does it feel like Tenri and Ayumi will get on.
I think it's time for Chihiro to return.
I don't want the best girl to have anything to do with this shit arc even if that means she never appears again.
Not that anon.
Btw, if Hayate was bad this doesn't make TWGOK good.
This arc is slow and someway boring. The next chapter should be the "climax" but I'm not excited at all. I only want to read the end.
It will only be the climax for the hosts and we will have to wait weeks again for young Keima.
Ayumi is a giant compared to Tenri.
>It's too dark to read
This had me fucking raging like a lunatic.
He is not afraid anymore.
>Not getting their cellphones out and using the screen's light to read the letter
ugh, every spoiler picture with young Keima makes me sad.
it's not like cars have built in lights or anything... And Ayumi's cell phone specifically was a huge plot point in the last arc!
Car lights would have given their position away. But they had Kanon's cellphone right there.
I havent read this since the end of the goddess arc.
Why is it less popular on /a/ now? Remember when we all raged about Chihiro snitching?
No more Chihiro fags to tease.
It got less interesting and everyone realized TWGOK was a one trick pony after the goddess arc ended.
I want Wakaki to bring back the pony, I really liked his trick.
>OH SHIT GUYS STOP USING MAGIC WE CAN'T USE MAGIC RUN AWAY IN CAR NO MAGIC
There is never going to be a good reason for this.
Remember how towards about halfway through the goddess arc we started "still on namek?" jokes? Yeah turns out that wasn't a one off thing. One long ass arc? Yeah people can take that, but TWO?
At least he had a bit of capturing with Uh la~la~ and the evil girl whose name I don't remember anymore.
Or to put it in a more pithy manner. "We're back on fucking Namek." I'm also rmeined of three of the seven rules of thumb Kurt Vonnegut gave for writing:
1:Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2:Every sentence must do one of two things-reveal character or advance the action.
5: Start as close to the end as possible
Vonnegut qualifies the list by adding that Flannery O'Connor broke all these rules except the first, and that great writers tend to do that.
I miss the pony as well. Probably glue factoried by now though.
This arc is dragged as hell and it seems always more like a generic action shonen, with battles, save the world and shit.
The long absence of Chihiro is also one of the aspects that is making the plot less dynamic.
She was a character who could create interesting plot twists, it's impressive like Tenri got plenty of spotlight during this arc yet she wasn't able to be enjoyable to me.
>There is never going to be a good reason for this.
Sure there is. Problems can't be solved in this manga unless and until Keima kisses something.
Vonnegut would never get serialized in Shounen Sunday, that's for damn sure.
more than just the absence of Chihiro, I feel this arc's biggest problem is that it sidelined all the big developments from the last arc (hers included).
I said her long absence is also one of the aspects that is making the plot less dynamic, not the only one.
At least all the other girls involved in the last arc are getting screentime, we know what they are doing while about Chihiro we know nothing and I'm damn curious about her situation. It's legit to complain, after more than two years since her last appearance.
>after more than two years since her last appearance.
Also even the girls who could be interesting are doing nothing but being forced to sit on there ass waiting. Leaving dull Tenri as the only proactive one, and she's only proactive in the sense that she does what she's told!
>she does what she's told!
Best girl indeed
Wakaki is intentionally holding off on her to build tension.
I suppose if you like dull nothingness. Hell I've found holes in the ground with more personality then her.
he's done it for too long now. This whole arc has been holding off to build tension and at some point that stops being effective.
So which Girl is winning atm?
Someone make this a 4chan Banner stat!
Elsie did what she was told the chapter before this, but that doesn't mean she did anything proactive.
Man, I want to see Urara on the present time now.
That's not true; you just don't care about the current story's tension.
at least that arc had a purpose. this arc has no meaning. it should have never even started
everything has it's limits, peoples limits may be different but everyone has them.
We got Lune panty shots and her just being a generally psychotic sexy bitch. No complaints here except that my schedule means I miss prerelease and release threads.
Looking forward to Ayumi showing the fury that new or old hell hath not.
There was another secret organization that is larger and more evil than the previous one, so keima has to stop them as well.
How does that have no meaning? It is pretty boring though.
the new organization could have been introduced in several other shorter (and more interesting) ways, instead of using the time paradox asspull
Chihiro end is best end and true end.
What? The time paradox thing has nothing to do with the secret organization, the time paradox is the hero's plan to defeat them.
It says ur a faget
He only did that in the past because he thought his manga might get axed, hence why he never used to take breaks either.
Actually it says that Keima is.
So it's less likely to get axed when he drags everything out?
It's more likely to be dragged out if it's not going to get axed.
Wakaki just can't pace for shit.
I wonder who will get off the boat first, Keima or Guts?
this comparison is apt. I am saddened both by how true it is and by the fact that I hadn't thought of it earlier.
Hayate is moving again, and I think it's really good to boot. It's good to have my favourite manga back on form from a shitty arc and a shitty girl.
And true this has been a rather slow arc. I'm intrigued as to what will happen though. Unlike Hayate where Ruka was a top class shit and made me hate the series.
Wait do people on /a/ actually believe Satyr was created during the time travel arc? They have always existed, and there was mention of them in past chapters.
It's just that people don't care about that angle.
Yeah. The only notable Satry is Lune, and she was with Vintage or whoever the fuck originally.
To be honest the only thing that intrigues me besides the letter that won't be read for another fifty chapters is Elsie and Akari's relationship.
Akari attempting to murder Elsie out of the blue seems like something that could go somewhere
I think that was more to scare Elsie off than to kill her. Doesnt want anymore time fuckery than there has to be
>scythe goes right through the gut
To be honest, that would scare me a bit too.
No, it wasn't to scare Elsie. The next page Rimyuel says "She got away...", meaning Akari wasn't expecting that.
Elsie being more than she appears and Chihiro returning are pretty much the only thing that can turn the series around.
Background character please go
Go away deathflags. No one cares about you.
Youre quite jealous of best girl arent you.
Dont be shy. Embrace her lovelyness and loyalty
If only she wasn't a slut.
It's the goddess inside her who is the slut.
It can't be helped.
>not best girl
Come on Miyako
