Refreshing and Original
The World God Only Knows (known as Kami no Mizo Shiru Sekai in Japan), is perhaps one of the few original mangas I have ever read, and ever since I read the first chapter, I have been hooked on to this manga.
What makes this manga interesting is the leading protaganist, Keima. Unlike mosts male protaganists in romantic comedy (or harem) manga, he is neither perverted or stupid, but rather, he is shown to be smart, sarcastic and at times serious.
The plot also got me interesting in the manga as well. Who knew that romantic interests is the only way to capture spirits?
Overall, this is the best manga I have ever read so far.
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).

This manga is about pimping, and it was awesome!
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.

i gotta agree it was so good!! so good until the time travel, he became a child again and pretty much the whole arc and it theres gore now where did the harem go?? where did the comedy go?? the author just doesnt like to end his manga here
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
It's draging now
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.
