Actually kind of liked this one. This third season attempts to freshen up the plot formula of the prior two World God Only Knows seasons by having Keima do while facing a serious crisis with a secret organization of demons attempting to wreck havoc on Earth and trying to track down the whereabouts of a group of goddesses called the Jupiter Sisters who are inhabiting the bodies of some of Keima's past capture targets. This results in the series having a more serious bent in its developments and an ongoing plot throughout this season's run that helps give it some actual stakes, while also retaining its hit-and-miss humor. It still has its issues such as Keima still not being the easiest character to root for at points and it felt like the series may have been rushing through developments at points. Still for a last season to go out on, the Goddesses arc is perhaps the best you can get out of World God Only Knows.

(One episode watched):

Eh, the prospect of yet another season of TWGOK doesn't thrill me, especially after watching episode one of the Goddess Arc. For one thing, when did this body-switching business take place? Most of the little quirks that distinguish one romance from the next are pretty unmemorable in the long run, but I think I would have remembered something like that. It turns out that it probably took place in an OVA which I missed. The problem is that my impression of the first two seasons of TWGOK has been that the longterm plotline of Keima having to romance 100 girls (IIRC) hasn't been all that exciting, although the filler episodes where a break is taken and he and Elsie just do weird stuff are sometimes great fun. This is not really the sort of show which strikes me as being worth making a special effort (like being on the lookout for OVAs) to keep up with. If it were, I'd still be able to remember the individual arcs and whatever it was which distinguished them from one another. Another problem with season three is that defeating a hellish conspiracy, and saving the world, seems kind of corny. It seems to me that girls who Keima once romanced beginning to remember what happened could be used in all sorts of ways, ranging from tragic to comic, which would be more intriguing than this. The risk of hearts being broken would be more moving than risk of hell taking over. Anyway, episode one didn't really put forward anything fresh enough to persuade me that I should watch yet another season of this show, though perhaps I'll watch another episode or two to see if things change.
