The best Romantic Comedy Manga Ever   
Rating: N/A
by crissio
December 31st, 2012, 4:52am
No contest actually, this series has beaten my most favorite romantic comedy manga before I read TWGOK : Love Hina .

By the way: If you already watched the anime, but have yet to read the manga. Seriously, read this manga. The manga completely blew the anime version of TWGOK out of the water.
I read the manga first before I watched the anime, so I know how the anime can't capture the "feel" when you read the manga, and there are so much detailed explanation that has been missing from anime scene which you can only find in manga, and also they cut so much scene from manga, so in sort, please read the manga.

I need to remind you that I probably have read countless romantic comedy manga, but there's none of them that actually have something that only TWGOK had:
1. Anti social main character, and genius at the same time.
2. Explaining things in detailed manner on how the girls brain and hearts really work together. It's like dissecting rat on your biology lab for scientific purpose. Thats how the general feel you get when you read this. So there's a logic behind every conversation, not just mindless numbing conversation about the girls emotions, but also with the purpose behind it and what domino effect will it have to your goal.
3. If you are a fan of tokimeki memorial , or similar genre that has a girls dialog to capture her in video games, this is a must read manga for you.
4. I'm a hardcore Gundam UC fans, and if you are like me, you will also probably like this because it's very obvious the mangaka liked Gundam UC too because there are so many insider "the first Gundam" joke on this manga, and I find it hillarious.

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!

Purely for the girl capture

I have read alot of shoujo and shonen and I must say this series amused me to no end, I loved the premise and I fell in love with not only elsie and keima but also the girls he captures. I don't recommend reading this for it's main plot because I feel the demonworld-humanworld politics/drama has been done so much better in other series. I felt that the capture arcs made this series fresh unique and fun, you will not be disappointed.

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

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.

Best until 105

after that the plot gets dragged on, goes into ridiculous directions and the author downright forgets everything that made the previous 105 chapters a success. Laclongquan hit the nail on the head with his explanation about the ending. I'm honestly pissed that I read till 185 whereas I should have stopped when the manga had peaked. I skipped to the last 2 chapters and I have no intention of reading through the rest. Talk about another disappointing middle and ending.
