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.

Straight to the point, I liked it a lot.
The premise is nothing like any other stuff around and is very well executed.
Even though the plot might be linear at the beginning it somewhat thickens gradually until the end. Some might say it drags, but i didn't see a single chapter wasted.
For what I have read in other commentaries, there where some that didn't like the ending (they simply had another expectations), but for me it was a plausible ending and the most important it was satisfying.

I'm not going to use this space to do a very long rant about the situations revolving the story, and try to delve into the mind of the character and why he did what he did, so I'm simply going to tell you if this worth your time or not, and definitely, this does.

Best until 105

after that the plot gets dragged on, goes into ridiculous directions and the author downright forgets everything that made the previous 105 chapters a success. Laclongquan hit the nail on the head with his explanation about the ending. I'm honestly pissed that I read till 185 whereas I should have stopped when the manga had peaked. I skipped to the last 2 chapters and I have no intention of reading through the rest. Talk about another disappointing middle and ending.

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.

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.
