Katsuragi Keima is known on the net as the god of getting the girls while in real life hes known as otamegane and he hates all real girls. However he is approached by Elsie, a devil from hell, to help her in catching runaway spirits that hide in people.

This is ->
1> The most original Idea I've ever come across
2> A Story Beautifully told
3> Excellent set of Characters
4> Actions are amazingly and perfectly executed
5> Artwork is Extremely Imaginative... people who lack imagination will have problems with a few frames...
6> A living tribute to all Gal Games/H-Games/Dating sims biggrin
7> Excellent ideas and intelligent main character make this even more fun and gripping.
8> Ah! I wanna say more.... but got some games to play bigrazz

I've recommended this to everyone I know on this planet...
It's just that good biggrin

The Ending satisfied me. Your opinion may vary based on which girl "YOU" fall in love with. smile

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

such a fun read biggrin and me likes how author reuses the girls showing how they still react to keima~ and keima is a loooot deeper than just some regular otamegane! sometimes he looks so pensive .-. thankfully the manga has him nice-looking so it's believable that he can get girls ><;;;

How to say it, I am totally not into this type of series where the mangaka draws "cute" characters, BUT it has a really good , funny story , good character developing, and I really like the protagonist.
So people how are bored in other stuff -- where you know what will happen kind of stuff-- this is a must read !

The story is really awesome and I love the manga. It´s so fuckin´ funny and you just can´t stop reading once you started BUT I hate the drawings. Maybe it´s because I don´t like this little body´s and big eyes. If the drawings would be more shonen like it would be one of the best mangas for me <- but I still love it^^

I laughed my ass off reading this one, would totally recommend this. The harp i have is that he can be a little of an asshole him self but that is how he is so, aside from that its a great read.

This is a must read, the characters are great, especially the girls and their different situations and how Keima resolves each of them but one thing that annoys me is elsee. It seems like he's becoming more and more aware of real girls, and they in turn are starting to feel their affections return for him as well.

The World God Only Knows (known as Kami no Mizo Shiru Sekai in Japan), is perhaps one of the few original mangas I have ever read, and ever since I read the first chapter, I have been hooked on to this manga.

What makes this manga interesting is the leading protaganist, Keima. Unlike mosts male protaganists in romantic comedy (or harem) manga, he is neither perverted or stupid, but rather, he is shown to be smart, sarcastic and at times serious.

The plot also got me interesting in the manga as well. Who knew that romantic interests is the only way to capture spirits?

Overall, this is the best manga I have ever read so far.
