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.

It is more subtle than one would expect from a "harem" series. I do believe that it dragged for too long during the beginning of the final arc (I actually stopped reading and only restarted when I saw the series was completed). For the ending I agree with the points that Rolan made, it is really easy to root for your favorite girl, but the one he chose makes sense for KEIMA.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is a guy who thought all girls in the real world had nothing to compare (looks, personality, charm) to video game girls. Game girls sparkled, and real girls were so dull. This is _especially_ true for during his capture of Chihiro way back when. He considered her no better than a mob character. Everything about her is middling and average. For Keima, it is a brilliant coupling since by the end of the series, he obviously cares about "real life". Compared to the other captures, who tended to have more extreme personality types/goddesses, he goes for the girl that is as normal as can be (no special powers, no dark/sad past, not extremely ambitious)


And that is why I love this ending. It also doesn't hurt that she was the one I rooted for the most because her and

had the best rapport with him in their interactions. I think Wakaki planned this coupling (or had an idea of it) from the get go.

Sadly, the pacing was really off towards the end, a combination of too slow, and too fast at all the wrong parts.

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 ^.^.

Despite my enjoyment of this series, despite the depth of this story, despite the interesting and clever characters...I just can't score it higher because I disliked the ending THAT much. What a pity.

Beware some people give it a low rating because the girl they like didn't get selected, ignore those and give this a chance, it get dragged near the end nevertheless I don't hate the ending.
