There's some fresh stuff here despite the common "contract" plot device. The two main characters are quite likable. Keima's videogame obsession is something I'm sure a lot of people could relate to. Elsee is your typical klutzy, cute girl character. Chapter 2 especially was great so far imo, funny stuff.

now read through ch13 so I'm gonna add a rating, which isn't gonna go down until it gets repetitive, so far this series is gold

having read through ch64 moving my score from 10 to 9. it isn't as funny as it used to be and two of the story arcs were downright boring for the most part (astronomy girl and swimming girl).

I was really hesitating about this manga, since the only reason I'm reading this is because many people voted it 10/10 (I never read the description, never read descriptions, cuz sometimes they contain spoilers), but after reading the first chapter. I thought it was really awesome! For those who played and loved visual novels, you guys will probably like this. 10/10 for me so far.

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 love this shounen. It will be a shounen that both boys and girls will like alot, I know that some shounens, only a few girls will like, but this manga will be liked by both genders cause it has a really neat plot, storyline and unique characters. At first i thought the title was "Only the World God Knows" but later after reading it, the world god only knows how to use game techniques to catch girls. I'm a girl and i really do enjoy this manga cause it is funny and really interesting. So, i recommend to both girls and guys ^.^.

Let me get this straight. The oh-so-self-righteous Hell Clues condemns the protagonist for valuing his own life over superficial, transient relationships? Yes, cheating sucks. Now please tell me that you wouldn't "cheat" to save your life. "Oh my god! My boyfriend/girlfriend is attempting to shatter my grade school notions of romance with the illicit peck-on-the-lips~ And what's more!? Just to save his/her own life? That self-centered piece of shit!" Honestly, what kind of sanctimonious crap are you preaching...

And no, it isn't a deus ex machina. Ha, the animu nuthugger's word of choice. I suppose Elsie's magical broom is a deus ex machina too for being able to help facilitate the story. It's a viable and necessary part of the story that's been addressed by the cast. Don't nonsensically write it off because of impartiality. Maybe if Keima's dad teleported in on a dinosaur with rocket launchers to save the day I'd agree with you.

The female characters exist as parodies and you're pointing them out as cliche? What a joker. Now that doesn't mean this manga is always original, but point out something that's not so... obvious. Seriously. It's like criticizing a cover album for using other peoples' songs.

Now to the review. The story itself is fairly solid. Occasionally the author introduces "break" chapters where the nothing really happens, which is fine, but most of them haven't been really interesting or funny. The most important part is that the story hasn't created any glaring disparities or inconsistencies (So far). TWOGK is easygoing and a decent read. Which is nice, because a lot of people seem to think that simple entertainment is synonymous with poorly written entertainment. It's a decent example of how to not fail so hard.

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.

Whatever I say, whatever I think, I just like the ending.

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".
