I picked this series up 3 days ago and between working a full time job and little rest, I've managed to finally catch up and begin the anime! (it really is that good) This series is powerfully addicting if you enjoy romance, a strong protagonist, lots of girls, and storyline that constantly moves forward. Keima Katsuragi is a cold-hearted tactical dating-genius. He can "see the ending" to a kiss but when it comes to understanding feelings - he really sucks. He easily gets caught up in the moment and before realizing it, he doesn't know how to handle love. Reading this series really brings back memories.. start reading this now if you've ever fallen in love, or haven't because you just might learn a thing or two. [currently ch. 167]

I love it. It's one of my absolute favourites. The story is well-thought, and although it has its bad points(none is perfect), it kept me entertained. also, those fucking cliff-hangers... whoa, this manga may well contain the worst cliff-hangers I've seen. well, anyway, I love it, but looking at the comments It seems, you either love it, adore it, hate it or find it boring. so, it's totally worth the try =)

Awesome, non-perverted main character who is a dating sim master--it's pretty fascinating to see how he reacts to everything, and I rather liked it.

Seriously, oh my god! The current arc (190+ I think?) is so CUTE, oh my god!

I really enjoyed this series. I really don't care for harems because the guy is always "confused" and doesn't know who to pick, as if any guy wouldn't be having sex with every girl. They're just so unrealistic. This series puts on a nice twist to it with him losing interest as soon as the evil spirit is removed. The idea that one can win over a girl using only their knowledge of dating SIMs is absurd, but it works beautifully in this manga and is well put together. I started to get a bit tired of the same thing happening over and over, though. It's a bit repetitive. My biggest problem with this series is...

after "old hell" is finally defeated or whatever it gets boring. VERY boring.

I ended up dropping the series somewhere between chapter 180 and 190 because of it. A mangaka just needs to know when to let a series end before it ruins it. Still, this is a decent series overall and I'd recommend it if you're looking for a good read.

original and thoughtful, although its early in its run it shows considerable promise, particularly for a shonen manga, it is starting to imply a depth rare for its genre, hope this one keeps up the amazing work

I like the manga. Its unique and its not tiring to read. Full of laughter.
I also just read the oneshot ( its been scanlated late ) Its make
a huge difference than in the series. The drawing in the oneshot is
much better. Maybe they try to make it more funny than serious because the change of style of the drawings. And I like the series style better.And also in the onshot the girl didn't forget it. But in the
series they forget it making it more great because if they didn't forget it. It will just turn into massive harem which will be also fun but maybe for others it will be kinda just normal or a repeat of your daily
harem.

It is more subtle than one would expect from a "harem" series. I do believe that it dragged for too long during the beginning of the final arc (I actually stopped reading and only restarted when I saw the series was completed). For the ending I agree with the points that Rolan made, it is really easy to root for your favorite girl, but the one he chose makes sense for KEIMA.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is a guy who thought all girls in the real world had nothing to compare (looks, personality, charm) to video game girls. Game girls sparkled, and real girls were so dull. This is _especially_ true for during his capture of Chihiro way back when. He considered her no better than a mob character. Everything about her is middling and average. For Keima, it is a brilliant coupling since by the end of the series, he obviously cares about "real life". Compared to the other captures, who tended to have more extreme personality types/goddesses, he goes for the girl that is as normal as can be (no special powers, no dark/sad past, not extremely ambitious)


And that is why I love this ending. It also doesn't hurt that she was the one I rooted for the most because her and

had the best rapport with him in their interactions. I think Wakaki planned this coupling (or had an idea of it) from the get go.

Sadly, the pacing was really off towards the end, a combination of too slow, and too fast at all the wrong parts.

The end of "The World Only God Knows" was more than satisfactory for me, I know that the fans were cheering for their favorite girl, but maybe I was one of few cheering for the happiness of "Keima" the main character.

If you saw the title of the last episode of season three, it's called "Flag. 12.0 The Memory of My First Love", it was clear that Keima liked Chihiro, he didn't know at first, but you can guess from what he said, he knew or maybe felt that Chihiro didn't have a Goddess in the middle of her second capture. However, he continued on, he didn't know at that time why he did that, despite his devotion in what he does and his pseudo cold bloodedness in every capture he set on, but this one was "different", this one was not only Chihiro's second capture, it was "his and her capture,"

He just earned for love like every boy of his age, but he figured it the truth at the end. That's why he hurt the girl he loves, he lied to her, he pushed her because unfortunately ... He didn't have the time to play girlfriend/boyfriend, he didn't have the time to love or be loved, the fate of the world was just more important than his own feelings.

For me his tears at the end of season three, the way the screen of his favorite games were shut down at the last scene of season three, the breakdown that he got on "Heart of Jupiter Arc" in the middle of Kaori Yuuzaki's pseudo-capture were clear signs of his pain. That's why I'm more than happy for him and more than happy for that "Ending".

This manga was solid for every arc, except the last.
The ending seems extremelly rushed, characters don't get disclosure, plotholes get handwaved...

Do yourself a favor and read ultil all the goddesses are shown, then quit. The manga issomewhat solid up to that point.

The Chihiro Ship Is The Worst Ship In The History of Anime and Manga

Wakaki Tamiki I want everyone to know you messed up big time.To betray the feelings of your readers,so shamelessly.I want to save as many people as possible from this epic dissapointment.

TWGOK was always about people having different values and beliefs struggling against reality.Acknowledging a world bigger than Keima was what this series has been about.

This ending is basically saying that people like Stephen Hawking don't exist in real life.This is the mind of every Chihiro shipper in a nutshell.
This manga would COMPLETELY TRASH on everything else just to get Chihiro and Keima to happen.
Not even mass effect's original ending could compare with the travesty of storytelling that is this.You thinks Eva's ending did not make sense?Wait till you see this one!


1.The reason why she loved him was that she wanted to shine with him.I guess a girl is not allowed to shine on her own....It kind of makes the moment where she let go of Keima at 189 meaningless don't you think.She was Keima first love and it should have been that way.And Keima only developed romantic feelings for her cause of his guilt.

2.Elsie becoming human.Not even an animal could write this badly.
It takes skill to undo two years, heck 6 years worth of effort in 3 chapters.If Elsie is not a demon,TWGOK would have never happened in the first place.Whatever forced Wakaki's hand really....

3.Satyr.
Well lets make them less of a threat than Fiore was.

4.Keima
He treats those he met as means to an end.Shunning them for Chihiro.Heck, he is even worse than chpt 1.I wanted to see him be more caring and less self-centred.Even the hardcore otakus probably wouldn't be this cold.You may or may not love them but to just leave them like that....Even Chpt 1 keima had some of the basics of respect.

5.Tenri
Well, I never got to see her coming of age story.That sendoff was pretty stupid.A lame attempt to give her some development .Telling someone to move on does not mean you dealt with it.

6.Chihiro
While you shippers to this day continue to preach the gospel of "normal".Nobody never really gave a damn about her own personal story.Wakaki's biggest fail.At least with every other girl they got to show their individually.I wonder what is worse, moe and the anime industry or a normal girl reduced to a blank-slate self insert.

To Old Hell with TWGOK's most trashy pairing.
