I believe this is a reference to the novel "I am a Cat" (吾輩は猫である, Wagahai wa neko dearu) by author Natsume Souseki. It's opening sentences are the following: 吾輩は猫である。名前はまだ無い。 which, translated into English, is: I am a cat. I don't yet have a name. The reference is more apparent if we compare the two in Japanese. The grammatical structure of the ...

The icon with a jar is the Weiss capturing device. I don't know what the bear like icon refers to The cat icon references the design of Kanon's stun gun as it appears in the anime. (The stun gun has normal appearance in the manga). The icon matches the stun gun on Kanon's right hand in the image below. According to KamiNomi Wiki: The original shape of ...

The first two seasons of the anime adapted everything from the beginning, and made it through Nagase's arc. Nagase's arc ends in chapter 41. Chapter 42 is an extra chapter, and 43 is the beginning of Tsukiyo's arc. From there until the start of season 3, the only parts that have been adapted are chapters 54-55 in the first OVA, and Tenri's arc (chapters 57-...

There is a reason why the runaway spirits hide in females. A runaway spirit can be reborn as the child of a female host. For this reason, essentially all runaway spirits have female hosts. As far as I know it has never been explicitly addressed whether a runaway spirit is capable of possessing a male host, but even if they could it wouldn't be of any benefit ...

looper's answer is correct but not quite complete. This answer will be based on the manga, mostly because I don't immediately have access to the anime, but also because I'm not sure how much of this is explained in the anime. Kanon's arc is flags (aka chapters) 7-10 in the manga. As the other answer points out, Kanon's idol career made her fear failure, ...

Keima is using the liver as a metaphor. In that scene, you can see a diseased liver on the screen. That shows that the liver has to be operated on. That operation will lead to a change so that she can live. The liver, being an internal organ, is a metaphor for her inside voice. Keima is using it to illustrate how though Shiori is quiet on the outside there ...

They seem to be bundled with the limited edition Blu-Ray releases. For example, Season 2 Volume 6 limited edition Blu-Ray comes with all these goodies, picture courtesy of the official anime site: On the middle right, you can see two postcards. These are the endcards from episodes 11 and 12 (the episodes published on this volume) free from any text ...

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai Also known as The World God Only Knows Synopsis Keima is a dating sim champion. Cute girls are rendered powerless by his irresistible game playing techniques. Too bad things aren't that way in the real world. That is, until his tempting game playing causes a real live—and very bubbly-cute—demon hunter named Elsie to materialize! ...

13 - 18, depending on what you count as a conquest. The wiki front page lists 18 girls as “captured targets”. Thirteen girls were “conquered” according to the initial setup: there was a hole in their hearts, Keima romanced them, the hole was filled and the Loose Soul left to be captured by Elsie in her bottle. Ayumi Takahara Mio Aoyama Kanon Nakagawa ...

It is the Dragon Quest 2 log in screen (hence the DQ2 password). The first thing she types in is a resurrection spell from the Dragon Quest series The Spell of Restoration (復活の呪文, ふっかつのじゅもん, fukkatsu no jumon) is the name of the password system used in the Famicom and MSX versions of Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest II. Similar to other games of the time, the ...

I don't blame you for missing it; it took me about half an hour of hunting through the chapters and summaries on the Wikia to figure out that this was Keima's first visit to Dezeni Sea: This comes from Chapter 20; it's one panel of a montage of places that Keima and Kusunoki went on their date. It's the only glimpse we get of Dezeni Sea; we aren't even told ...

I'm going to keep the spoiler at minimum. This is from Heart of Jupiter Arc, the last arc of the series. What she said to Diana is... From TWGOK Chapter 191 A Girl. Page 13

Posting as answer because can't use spoilers in comments, still just a speculation... With the recent development in the manga, it seems it might be something along the lines of: Also, remember Diana grew her wings once before (although they didn't notice), in manga Chapter 139 (can't remember which episode), after Keima apologizes to her in his library.

That is a famous advertisement for Oronamin C. The advertise ment is very iconic and most readers would know where it is from, similar to the Uncle Sam ads in the United Stats. In the World Only God Knows, the ad is being parodied, advertising the book instead of the drink. In Kunimitsu no Matsuri, it is just an advertisement in the background. I am not ...

This is mostly from memory, so apologies if there are any errors. The anime and manga both follow the same story line. The novel is in the same setting as the manga; that is to say, Elsie and Keima are still engaging on their usual activities of making girls fall in love with Keima to capture the Runaway Spirits (駆け魂, Kaketama). However, the targets are all ...

Before Kanon became an idol, she was "socially invisible" - after the Citron broke up, she feared to be alone in front of a large group of people. The effect of being "transparent" expresses her shyness.

In the bath scene in episode 9, at 12:01, Diana confessess to Keima (Diana likes Keima). Tenri asks why she is there at 13:00. At 13:40, Diana encourages Tenri to confess. Tenri PROBABLY doesn't love Keima as much as Diana thought she did. Tenri might have said she doesn't like Keima. With Tenri's confession to Diana in episode 12, Diana grew her wings. ...

The only consistent drawback of remaining possessed is having your first child being the reincarnation of a devil from old hell. The main goal of a loose soul is to be returned, and since they do this through the first offspring of their host (see below), they wouldn't want to adversely affect said host too drastically. Aside from that, like you say, ...

The manga series has not been licensed in English unfortunately. You can stream the anime via CrunchyRoll or buy the DVD/BluRay through RightStuf (although you may need to enquire about shipping estimates/availabilty)

Not sure if it's ever shown in anime but in manga we see Elsie caught it. From manga, The World God Only Knows, chapter 42 "A Demon That's Tiny = The Little Devil", page 15.

I think it means "the world only god knows". "God only knows" is an old way of language. So, I infer that since the setting (plot device) of this anime is about "capturing girls" , it is sort of a world that only Keima (god of capturing) knows.

I'm not aware of any further canon details or Word of God explanations, though I won't guarantee the latter doesn't exist. There would be a difference between "knows her true identity, ie that she is a spiritual being from Hell", and "knows that she's not really her husband's daughter (but otherwise just assumes she's a human girl with feelings for her ...

Dimitri mx's answer has explained about the origin of the screen: it is Dragon Quest 2's password input screen. As to why she mistypes, the input was actually part of a real, valid DQ2 password that's famous for its effect (in short: new game plus (Japanese YouTube link)): ゆうて いみや おうきむ こうほ りいゆ うじとり やまあ きらぺ ぺぺぺぺ ぺぺぺ ぺぺぺ ぺぺぺぺ ぺぺぺ ぺぺぺ ぺぺぺぺ ぺぺ YUUTE IMIYA ...

Mercury, Mars, Minerva, Diana, Apollo, and Vulcan are all Roman deities, yes. In particular, they are six of the twelve Consentes, the Roman counterparts of the twelve major Olympians of Greek myth. What's a little bit weird is that while there are six female Consentes, that set of six isn't the same as the set of six represented as the "Jupiter sisters" in ...

It's just a spinoff because Kanon is extremely popular in Japan. You can't call it canon (or should I say, kanon), because it is not based off the material from the manga. However, Wakaki has drawn a few bonus chapters based off Magical Star Kanon, but does not hold the premise for the OVA's story.
