I Don't Want to Spoil the Party
In Sunday morning, Elsie woke up early to clean the house. While she was busy cooking, Mari comes into the kitchen, and complements Elsie for her help, saying she'd rather have Elsie as her daughter than Keima. Elsie, who had been making a breakfast for Keima, made a hand-which, which Mari ponders about the ingredients.
Then Keima enters looking like skin and bones. Elsie mistook him as an undead and asks what happened. Keima explained that because he has been quite busy with capturing the runaway spirits, he has neglected his games for two weeks and they have been piling up. To Keima, games are his energy and his oxygen. Mari however, wanted her son to never have existed.Keima declared that he will enter the God Mode and told the two to not disturb him. Shutting himself in his room. Elsie tried to enter Keima's room but because it was locked, she used her hagoromo to create key to enter Keima's room.
When Elsie entered Keima's room, several huge TV screens and many game consoles started running altogether. There, Elsie saw Keima's "God of Conquest mode" for the first time. Keima's arms multiplied into six, allowing him to play multiple games at once. Though Elsie realised that it was just an after image of Keima's arms moving really fast. He's able to play multiple games at super speed, although Elsie was puzzled as to why this was necessary. It was revealed that, it all started when Keima hadn't enough time today all the new games that come out. Thus he began to play two games simultaneously and now, he is able to play up to six games simultaneously. In addition, Keima is able to express his emotion for each games his playing.Within three hours, Keima was able to complete six games, however, as staying in the God of Conquest mode consumes tremendous amount of stamina and concentration, it is a double edged sword working against Keima. The amount of stress one feels is so much that it's like reducing one's life by three years with just one hour of usage. To which, Keima has no interest in. As he'd rather die than allow games to build-up. While Keima was talking to himself, Elsie watches from behind reminded of how creepy Keima can be.
Further three hours later, Keima managed to complete six more games. Though there's still mountains of games that needs to be completed. After 20 hours, Keima managed to catch up with his delayed piles of games and needs only one more game to go. However, his consciousness fades away, as he had been using the God of Conquest mode for 20 hours. Just as his consciousness fades away, a voice is heard. When Keima opened his eyes, the girl from game he was just playing comes to life and cheers him. Right after, all of the girls he had conquered comes to life, supporting him to the ending. As Keima had finished his last game, the girls take Keima to the game world, where they dance and sing.As Keima was saying his thanks, Elsie wakes Keima who was shocked to see her in his room. It turns out that was all just a dream, as Keima hadn't eaten anything in the past 20 hours. Elsie then told that it was important to feed the hunger of real world and gives Keima the hand-which she made this morning. To which Keima was horrified to see. But Elsie threatens Keima that she'd sing the embarrassing song Keima had sang in his dream. Chief Dokurou, who had received the letter from Elsie regarding her life on human world, wondered if she's doing her job.
- The cover of Chapter 6 is an allusion to Edward Burne-Jones' painting, The Golden Stairs. (chapter 6, p.1)
- Elsie singing "My, my, kare is (わたしのカレーは)" is a pun/allusion to Asaoka Megumi 's song, "Watashi no Kare wa Hidarikiki (私の彼は左利き)" . Here, "kare" is a homophone that can either be the informal Japanese pronoun "boyfriend" or "curry" in Japanese. (Chapter 6, p.2)
- Dying(?) from Capturing God Mode, Keima states "This is a blood-stained road after all... (所詮血塗られた道...)". This line is from Kushana in Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind . (chapter 6, p.11)
- Fujisaki Shiori, Saber, Kohaku, Hoshii Miki & Miura Azusa are the names of a few of the girls who were on the last page of Keima's dream. (Chapter 6, p.16)
- This chapter was read by the seiyu of Shiori on Route 4.0 of the Blu-Ray of the anime.
