Katsuragi Keima is known on the net as the god of getting the girls while in real life he’s 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. Apparently the spirits only hide in the hearts of girls and the only way to get the souls out is by making the girl fall in love so the spirit gets forced out. And he’s not allowed to fail or he will lose his head.

Loved it until...
I was a big fan until
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the mangaka pulled this time travelling arc out of nowhere. Personally, I really dislike time travelling, because it's often done improperly. This unfortunately, is no exception
. It's an odd blend of supernatural and sci-fi that just doesn't cut it for me and makes me just hope for this particular arc to end sooner rather than later.
Just to debunk the terribly written post below me.
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.
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^^
and responding to eliwoodx12 comment, its nice that the girls go away with no memory cause he's only intrested in 2d girls, which mixes it up trom a traditional manga!
A Soundtrack!!! WTH
I never saw anything like this manga. Its funny, well draw, and theres a soundtrack. Can u believe that, a soundtrack!?! Dont miss "The World God Only Knows".
The World God Only Knows
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 ^.^.

back to the future!
I loved this manga until chapter memory of my first love. the time travelling arc really boring, lack of harem and comedy, plus confusing. hope he will be back to his time and conquer more girl
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.
I can already see the ending!
August 13th, 2008:
Seriously...I absolutely LOVE this concept and the main character has already become my ideal image. The only disappointing thing about this is that he has to feel the pain of losing someone that loves him after all his hard work to get her to love him. His feelings at the end of the chapter shows it. However I can see two things that will happen towards the end.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The first is the most obvious that he will fall in love with his partner, the second is somehow all the girls he's...for the lack of a better term...played with will somehow regain their memories and hell will break loose for our enjoyment.
CALLED IT!! CALLED IT!! CALLED IT!! CALLED IT!! AYUMI TAKAHARA!! BACK IN ACTION!! NYAHAHAHAHHAA
