without any emotional attachment, Keima just go for it and very successful with it. witness the mastery of enamoring any females from the guy who don't even care.

~
but to witness such pure mastery, you must be patient until few arcs have ended. but don't worry, the excitement will continuously escalates. without fail.

I was originally a fan of the series, but in the end it has been continued past where it should have and it now has become pretty terrible.

I'm also disappointed that the main character never really evolved in the end. He seeks a boring life (solo fantasy video games), which he prefers over real life, no matter how thrilling his life actually is.

At first, Particularly, Romance in Shounen isn't a Major genre. some people would rather pick a shojou if they want a nice,good,sweet, romance manga. i've already read a bunch of shounen manga which contain a romance as a main genre, some popular shounen romance manga always pick a poor, hopeless, idiotic, pervert male protagonist, over that there is some manga which just sell a meaningless ecchi, maybe thats why some people pick romance shoujo over a shounen romance.

TBH i don't hate ecchi, if its appear not to much, its realy good and a plus point to make.. c'mon people! its shounen, the Fan Service is always, plus the sub genre like harem should have some "ecchi".. but i think, if its too much "the dish will be too salty". so thats why i dont realy like pervert/hopeless protagonist which always caught in some ecchi scenes with their harem..

I found The Protagonist in this TWGOK Series is realy UNIQUE, he isn't hopeless, he isn't dumb, he isn't pervert, and on top on that he is a GENIUS..

actualy, Genius Male Lead is mostly often found in Shojou manga, to think that we find a genius male lead in shounen romance its a rare..

And of course i couldn't get enough to think how brilliant the author is, tamiki wakaki sensei throw an outstanding fresh plot in every chapter, the plot always make me excited to read, and always makes me shouting "woah.. woah..." when i read a new realeased chapter..
i'm never get bored to read again and again..

some people throw a doubt in their comment, but 'til now i'm never see the doubt become real..
the author always exceed the expetation..

This is masterpiece, so i dont have any reason to not recommend you to read this manga..



Brilliant !!!!

Please do not read the premise of this series and get put off immediately. It is far better than it originally looks.

I love this series. It is one of the few that actually makes me laugh. Sure, it starts out a bit repetitive, with the new girl, charm, capture, repeat cycle but later it starts to develop into a more "proper" plot. You'll be surprised how much the older parts come into play.

I will however say this appears to be one that is best read weekly. Reading it in large blocks (which I had to do for the first few captures until I caught up) kinda drains the humour a little bit. However it is still great to read, and the later chapters ( starting around 54, when tenri comes in) leave you begging for more every week..

I just love this series, it's a lovely laugh every week. It's the only one I really miss when the magazines go on a break.

this series have very high comedic value and moe characters. it is a refreshing take on the harem genre where the main character actually try to capture the girls' heart, not just sitting there and somehow girls fall into his lap. the character design is very cute especially when keima is in his 'god' mode. there is no gratuitous ecchi scene that will reduce the story's value (though i love ecchi). it is light hearted and will put a smile on your face, even with the 'heavier' arc. highly recommended. i think girls will love this simply because keima's conquering technique is just too amusing

the only reason i dont give it a ten is because it's my principle to never give anything full mark.

edit
im crying like a baby. the ending bring me to tears! to TEARS!!!! such a perfect good ending, i can never envision it. my OTP getting realised, im crying for happiness. and i just love the elaborate plot, i can see the mangaka take great care of everything and everything is resolved nicely. i take back my previous statement - this manga will receive the holy number 10.

In an age where genre, perimse and sucess formulas define anime.TWGOK shows that originality could still exist.
TWGOK may have the elements of a romantic comedy,you are supposed to laugh a lot but as a whole it takes itself seriously.I don't mean it in the superfical violence and pretentiosness,its more of Responsibility,how characters interact with one another and how conflict is resolved.Lets start with the conquests,Unlike other romatic comedies the girls aren't there for the sake of getting them.you'd realise each girl is idealistic and we see how they genuinely struggle against reality.Keima's basically gives them the courage to face it.We see the girls graually come to tems with this on their own through Keima.The girls for once felt like characters that can stand on their own merits as oposed to just making the main look good.Hence the original conept only this manga has "Our Ideals Versus Reality."

I 'm not a big fan of romatic comedies due to contrived romaces and Drama.but in Twgok
it actually is very reasonable cause the main character puts in the EFFORT and is not depenadant on dating sim logic only to succeded.

The story is not really about otakuism but of a coming of age story.The main chararcter may be an otaku,but its not about his fear but his hate or dislike.As the series progress we are reminded of how Human he really is.Which bring me to its villans.

They aren't shonen Jump DBZ villans thats for sure.You acually get to see an analogy of politics and even corruption.Their motivations are in line with their actions.They aren't sympathetic villans,
but you understand where their coming form.Logic ,reason,courage and determination are acually genuine here for the Protagonists,No unreasonable convient miracle power up here .Its awesome to see a mere human stand up aganist them using just down to earth tatics.

Ps .the Heart of Jupiter Arc is not even over yet.,season 3 is being made so ther chapters aren't released as fast.TWGOK isn't just about the romance.

The only problem is that if you looking for a typical romatic comedy you might not like it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It takes a very long time for the harem to form 190+.Lack of fanservice.Plot and themes of TWGOK hold just as much weight as the characters,They are not just a means to an end.


Update:

What a insulting end to a great series.Despite doing welll in sales TWGOK got axed for the sake of Shonen Sundays 55 new manga move.Corporate greed.

I suggest just stopping at 189.The story could end there,and my review is based on that.

Heart of jupiter arc could have taken TWGOK in a new direction and bring the plot full circle but its incomplete

"Once again, reality proves to be a shitty game" Keima Katsuragi, The World Only God Knows vol.1 pg.69 pnl.3

This phrase resumes the main character's philosophy. he is extremely smart, BUT could be clinically depressed xD
His ideal word, and ideal girls, exists only in gaming, probably by his own glorified notion of what it should be.
this is indeed a shitty world, most of us who can join this site on our idle time are lucky enough to NOT worry about what are we going to eat tomorrow, or with how many people i got to suck his thing to get the food. So we can tend to forget how hard things are for a LOT of people in this wide world.
He decided not to care about this shitty world and shut himself on gaming, but he was forced back to reality by a life or dead deal xD.
The plot has become thicker than I would have ever guessed at the beginning, and I have to tell you that Im waiting eagerly for a new dose of his world every week.

Beware the cliffhangers.

It is pretty tough to make a uniquely dysfunctional character nowadays, especially in manga where every other character is a freak but somehow Keima stands out as one in a class of its own. This series pretty much rides on his messed up way of life and how he refuses to deviate or apologize for it.

The stories have been carried solidly by him for well over a hundred chapters now and they are still going on strong. The story arcs have become longer and longer and with that comes more and more cliffhangers driving more than a few readers into rages and face palm moments. This has not stagnated the story though as a lot of plot development has been built at a steady pace as a result.

I've pretty much been following this manga since forever ago, and I must say it is a true masterpiece among shounen manga. Nowadays I follow very few shounen mangas because many of them are pretty much the same things with different formats ....but TWGOK is different. As others have stated, the setting is pretty cliched (a harem with some anti-social fellow getting a lot of girls), but the actual plot and protagonist are very unique: the guy is NOT just some passive douchebag waiting for girls to fall out of the sky for him, but rather an actual genius (albeit a very irritating one sometimes) that comes to truly care and make great efforts to conquer the girls he comes across, and not for his own pleasure (he hates 3D girls), but out of necessity and, eventually, actual empathy. That, and many other aspects of this story make it unusually ellegant for a shounen manga.

Now I say it requires an open mind mostly because of the latest story arc: it really deviates a lot from the premise of the series and becomes much less of a comedy while turning pretty serious. You start seeing things like actual deaths and real violence occasionally, and the whole conquering girls part seems to have been (most likely) put on hold for the time being. After reading some of the latest reviews, it seem this has put off many fans. I personally think it's a wonderful development that ties in very well with the story as a whole and follows up on many little things hinted at beforehand, while also showing a lot of character development. And it's not like the story's permanently changed course either ...this last arc seems to be close to its end and a lot of comedy is resurfacing.

Sorry if this seemed too long ...I just really like this manga and would advice everyone to try it sometime.
