Blogger Note: To watch Season 3 of The World God  Only Know, two things are required:
  • Have seen the Season I or II (They are very similar to understand and you should be able to understand the story main plot)
  • See The World God Only Knows Tenri-Arc (a two episodes OVA, sincerely I do not agree that a OVA should contain main story plot development, and in case of TWGOK for me is a huge mistake)
Warning this review could contain spoilers!
If the reader wasn't watched this anime, this could reduce the enjoyment!
For instance Sasuke will kill Naruto in season finale! 
See the danger of a Spoiler? Now this was a lie, only to show the power of a spoiler!
The reader was been warned!


Now Let's Get Started:

"The Rule That God Only Knows Is Broken"

Directed by - Satoshi Osedo
Studio - Manglobe
Year - 2013
Season 3 / 12 episodes

One More Note
After two seasons and several OVA, the show suffers a director change! It's a very risky move, to a well establish anime. But I think that didn't affect much the anime.

Scenario
The world is divided in 3 parts (Heaven, Earth and the New Hell) and it is in New Hell that this anime has born several years ago, Hell tried to invade Earth and capture their souls and gain supremacy against Heaven, but Heaven and the good demons rise up and stooped the attack. As consequence the hell souls, run and hide in lonely girls hearth, so New Hell send is agents to capture the running souls with the help(forced) of chosen humans.

Last Spoiler Warning!

Analysis

As usual I will start this review by the opening, and TWGOK  on't goes to break that rule, as the anime made (:P). The openings of TWGOK   have the ability to make me hate at start and then to love it. In this season the feeling was more extreme, because they started with glimpses of the old opening.

 
(TWGOK 3 - opening)


As usual in this series the opening reflects the spirit of the plot. This op. was no exception, making a perfect trailer without any type of spoiler, because you need to watch the first 2 or 3 episodes to understand.

When I said the op. reflects the anime is because the lyrics "It's not a game anymore" was a constant presence! The game flags and events was set to a very minimum to trace a bridge between tho old seasons. 

Keima Katsuragi now holds the humanity faith in his hands, he is no more an buddy between others, but now holds the power to find the Goddness that stooped the Old Hell riot!  And that Goddness are in the bodies of the girls that Keima released and to find the Goddness he needs, to reconquer all his targets with the only clue that now, the girls remembered!

Obviously with the golden rule beaked the story turned in a harem and to help the party the Goddness also feminine also like a little of Keima! For me Season III of TWGOK  could easily had been a 25 episodes season, the OVA Tenri-Arc and a more paused rhythm could give a very good season!

Also to be noted the new Hell organization receives some protagonist, we are able to see they organization and corruption like an typical government :P 

The only thing I really dislike was the disappearance of air time of Elsie, completely push aside, returning a feeling of an incompetent character!

If you watched previous seasons I vivid recommend to also watch this Season!
