“What the hell is she talking about, why is this post titled Screencap invasion when it doesn’t have anything to do with the episode?”
Don’t worry, you’ll understand when you have finished this post. This episode just had so many screencap moments that I HAD to take and put in there.
Now, onto the summary. This episode explains the motive of Kanon’s disappearance. She has a huge confidence problem, and feels as though if people don’t watch and admire her she will disappear because she has no importance in life. Because this is the big concert, she is convinced that she is going to mess up and fail, and she’s afraid that people will stop looking at her.
Most of the rest of the episode consists of Keima and Elci who are out looking for her, while Kanon walks around desperately, as transparent as a ghost. When Keima finally finds her, he puts her back in her place with a speech about her actual importance, and how she should stop relying on others in order to feel important. The final kiss then happens, and Kanon performs her concert really well. Keima’s sadness appears once again at the end of the episode, because he had actually started liking Kanon and she has forgotten about him ever since their kiss.
1) The actual storyline was very good. Although Kanon’s personality kind of pissed me off during the build-up, I really liked how they tied it up in the end and mixed it up with her complex. The ending was cute as usual, and I have to say that for an anime character, Kanon is made to look really cute. Her complex was really pushed to the limit but Keima’s final speech was, as usual, absolutely epic.
2) Talking about Keima, as a character I love that guy, and I feel really bad for him. We can definitely feel him becoming more open to these girls in real life rather than simply the ones in games, and I think that he’s slowly starting to realize that girls in real life aren’t so different from 2D ones. Every time, when he finishes releasing the loose soul, he starts feeling a little sad because he actually started liking the girl, and suddenly she doesn’t remember him anymore. This week was especially focused on that at the end of the episode.

2) This episode was simply an invasion of priceless facial expression. Keima seriously surpassed himself, it was hilarious! Weird facial expressions tend to make me laugh a lot, and so far this show has proved itself quite amusing in that matter. This week however seemed better than the rest:

This show has always surprised me in that way, and it always will. Every time I see something like this I can’t help but laugh and think “Oh Keima, you just make my day”.

3) Finally, she technically wasn’t the main focus of the story, but Elci’s cuteness was just so awesome that she simply deserves a whole number to herself, just for screencaps. She makes the cutest faces, and sometimes she just makes a bunch of clumsy mistakes and she’s just so cute.

…She’s just too cute.

    They did step it up three notches compared to the manga so I really enjoyed this episode. Elsie in the anime is ending up way cuter than she appeared in the manga.
    The next episode I feel is a little off but that’s because I liked how the manga version turned out. A lot of people (fans of Keima’s mother) seem to think that it’s alright though. People who didn’t read the manga might find it nice also. It’s not really that bad on its own.

      Wow, that’s nice. I don’t read manga, but it’s the first time I hear someone saying that parts of the anime is BETTER than the manga.
      I actually really liked how they put it together. I mean, I haven’t read the manga (as I’ve said about 3 times already XD), but I loved how they showed each person’s point of view of a certain day. It also helped us understand how each character thinks, especially through Elci and Keima. But anyways, I’ll talk about that in the next post ;P. By the way, I’m sorry for the delay, but I have a lot of homework right now so I’ll catch up a little later.

        This show has done a fantastic job animating it because they haven’t gone off track. I am hoping that they will continue to progress in the right direction since there’s currently at least 130 chapters AND they aren’t going to continue into the Winter Season. Apparently there’s only going to be 12 (maybe 13) episodes, which I think is smart on the production team’s part unlike Kimi ni Todoke who got 25 right off the bat – however still remained awesome. XD

    I actually like it when they have 26-episodes shows, especially for the good ones, usually they end up following the manga more. Of course, some shows like it are just a bunch of fillers, too -_-‘.
    As for this show, there’s already a second season coming out! They’ve decided to put it in the spring season though, which I guess is going to improve the quality of the show. Anyways, they’ll probably end this season with like this huge cliffhanger or something, I dunno… We’ll see ^.^

      Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan did something similar like that. They continued right off the bat starting with episode “13” rather than a new season of episode 1.
