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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

This is the rare kind of shonen that u can't just find anymore. The main character... what can i say hes freaking awesome, and i love how they do the strong yet made fun of main character (intelligence wise). I want to see a plot twist. I could seriously see this as an anime it would be amazing.
