The ending is kinda peter out somehow

I get that logic drive the ending. But the intensity is just watery. prolly because we invest too much in other girls, and when he choose that one (or anyone) it become kinda lost for us.

The mangaka should do one more chapter. An epilogue or something like that, with the usual intensity.

EDIT: Now that I have more time to think about it, this mangaka has something in common with Rowling. Both want to enforce their endings to readers, thus making readers' interest just peter out~ No wonder they cant make anything more worthwhile after that, since we really dont care about theirs work anymore.

This is godlike!!! i cant believe i forgot to make a comment for this. . TWGOK i cant even begin to describe how good it is. . the mangaka is so good at making cliffhangers that makes you want to read more and beg for more. . seriously i recommend this to everyone! read it and be amazed! it will always put a smile on your face. . =)

edit: this was one of the few manga that i really loved. . the characters were lovable, the plot was fairly simple. . Make girls fall in love then make them forget about it. . lol. . at some point it peaked during the goddess arc. . then slowly took a nose dive. . heart of jupiter arc was pointless and incoherent that it made the series fall from grace. . the author built a good foundation of story and characters only to finish it with an unsatisfying and weak ending. . during the last chapters keima lost his character and personality that made him unique as a protagonist. . I would have been okay with an open ending as long as the author could have finish all the loose plot holes. . And from my point of view.. . if keima was truly the god of games, he should have found a way to make everyone happy. . and not just one. .

This manga is brilliant and entertaining right from the very start. Wakaki Tamiki really does tread new ground in the harem genre - this is not your average harem manga, nor your average romance manga for that matter. Even though the author uses a lot of the genre's tropes; at the same time (through the use of the charismatic, genre-savvy main character), he subverts and deconstructs those same tropes, and it's damn refreshing. It's not just a gimmick, though. The storytelling is sweet, clever and amusing. The cliffhangers, of which there are many, are nevertheless tasteful - they don't feel like the author's just cut the chapter short. And the latest developments are exciting to say the least. Whether you're a jaded reader of romance manga, or an earnest fan, give this manga a try, you won't regret it.

Like everybody else, I had a bit of skepticism when looking at the title and reading the tiny description about the series. After reading the first chapter however, I have to say that this manga has a very solid plot and it seems to be well put together. The main character(s) seem to be a bit of an intriguing combination (it gives off a manzai team combination somehow) and the main idea seems to just revolve around them.

Like I said though, this series has a lot of potential. It's taking the 'romance' genre in another direction, but unlike most other starts, it's giving a flair that makes me want to come back for more.

Getting draggy EDIT: Holy crap that ending.

Liked this series at the start, enjoyed it through around 200 chapters before the story dragged longer and longer until I've put this series on hold for the past year or so checking in once in a while. Seems the time travelling arc is still going strong unfortunately. Why must so many shounen series drag on longer than it should? People say mangakas do it for the money, but if they're not under contractual obligation by their publishers to stretch a series to death then they should end it after a good run, then start a new series. If their manga was so well recieved as to run for so long anyways then I'm sure their fanbase will be happy with whatever new series they start and money will still come in. It feels as if many of these shounen mangakas fear their work is going to be a one trick pony so they have to make it last, but this just makes their image worse and supports any allegations/notions of them being such ponies.

I hope this current arc will be the last/second to last as Wakaki sensei has had more than enough time to make a complete and good series.

EDIT: And he ends it with a shitty ending. Of all the endings possible he chooses the semi-side character girl as the hero's chosen love interest? Hell even a harem ending would have been better. After all the crap he and the main goddesses girls went through he rejects them all and actively seeks to push them away from him. What a jerkass.

Oh my god, this is the best manga ever!!
I like the main character, Keima! He is an interesting and funny guy! so far, i've never found a guy who likes game characters more then real ones xD
Elsee is just too cute! she is clumsy and very very cute!
I also like almost all the other characters!

I like plot! only a genius like Wakaki Tamiki can make mangas like this!
Anyway, there is no word to describe how much awesome this manga is!

I give it a 10/10! Highly recommended!!!
Also, am i the only one who gets jealous when Keima kisses the girls? xD I cant sleep at night because of that!!!

The concept is simply brilliant, and so far the plot isn't deteriorating.
Keima is the "god of conquest": he's a master at playing galgames. To save his life, he now has to cooperate with Elsee to catch runaway spirits.. by filling the emptiness in girls' hearts by making them fall in love with him. So basically, he now captures "3D girls". It's an awesome manga, highly recommended. You can watch the anime first, but the manga goes a little more in-depth, so it's definitely worth rereading those chapters if you have the time.

Edit: volume 12 and 13 are absolutely awesome. They are thrilling, keep you at edge; and there's so much hilarious and genious stuff happening. I really hope the series will continue at this pace and quality.

Shounen Romance Needs Nothing Else

I can't believe I haven't commented on this series yet, it is one of my all-time favorite manga. Every time I read another shounen romance manga, I only end up thinking "why can't this be more like TWGOK?" It is a series that subverts all other shounen romance tropes and then plays them straight to show them how it's done. Not to the mention the main character is freaking awesome. Anyways, if I had to decide on a flaw of this series, it might be how convoluted the main plot becomes. Part of me would be ok with just having a new girl to conquer every once in a while but part of me is glad that this series actually has an overarching plot.

I think this is the best Harem ever in this year for me (because I don't like harem that's too many ecchi, serious) this manga is funny and the girls keep increase more and more (not like other harem series). And if it have a flaws for me it is the an anime, because it only have 13 episode.

edit: well, kami nomi have received green- lit for second season. the season is on April next year. yippi

I like this manga alot. The storyline is fresh, and its very intresting to see Keima, a dating-sim manic with under average looks make girls fall for him. Well, i think in the later chapters hes gonna stop playing those games and let his mission become his game.
