I love the anime. I did enjoy how he would "capture" the girls and all the comedy-harem etc etc. But the main thing I like is the main character. I felt worried that this anime would drag as soon as I realized that this is going to become famous, which means money for the creator-publisher. With they have any good ideas? Hopefully they will, but even if not, I will still love the first part of the story, that I keep reading again and again.

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^^

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 Chihiro Ship Is The Worst Ship In The History of Anime and Manga

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.

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.

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.


UPDATE: (Nov 16, 2008)

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
