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.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
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.

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 ^.^.

The series has no ending coming. Even if the current arc (till chapter 220) is solved, there is no perspective for an ending. A good story has beginning, middle part and an ending. But this one has only a beginning and the middle part has no end. So the good feeling from the beginning has turned sour.

The art is fast drawn, cheap manga style. No eye candy at all. But you get used to it.

The comedy is nice and well placed, especially in the first arc. The second arc has almost much fewer comedy, maybe because the story gets more sinister. I personally totally dislike the second arc, in my point of view it is only big BS, but this is my opinion. The characters are in the first arc well made. Second arc is only something boring on the character side, nothing really new or refreshing. After all things this second arc is about one person who saves the whole earth, there is no room besides the hero.

If you don't mind to read a never ending story (at least 220 chapters) than you can give it a try. But the second arc of this manga is disappointing.
