Description
Katsuragi Keima is known on the net as the god of getting the girls while in real life he’s known as otamegane and he hates all real girls. However he is approached by Elsie, a devil from hell, to help her in catching runaway spirits that hide in people. Apparently the spirits only hide in the hearts of girls and the only way to get the souls out is by making the girl fall in love so the spirit gets forced out. And he’s not allowed to fail or he will lose his head.

I like this manga alot. The storyline is fresh, and its very intresting to see Keima, a dating-sim manic with under average looks make girls fall for him. Well, i think in the later chapters hes gonna stop playing those games and let his mission become his game.

My heart pounded so much I can't count !!!
The harem, the jealousy, the confessions, the comedy, the clumsiness, etc ... WILL BLOW YOUR MIND !!

absolute addiction .. MUST READ
-------------------------------------------
This is an update after the series ended : it was very bad and vague ending
seriously .. the ending made me lower the rating of this manga.
The last ark was bad and the ending made it worse.
-------------------------------------
non the less .. It started AMAZING. I truly enjoyed it.

Awesome Shounen Romance Comedy

This is definitely a good read. The hero is a very extreme and exaggerated otaku who loves 2D or idealistic girls over 3D or realistic girls. Also its not a typical harem, since the hero has completely no interest in real girls at all. Also it is not riddled with ecchi like other harems. Even the idea with real vs ideal is not original and is found throughout this story and plot, it is using a modern model with "galga" or dating simulation games as the device to drive this story and give it new perspective. This does make for good and interesting ideas which can make you think a bit about the world we live in. The supernatural element adds the right kind of spice that can drive this ideal vs real into the most interesting conflicts and forcing the hero to use his 2D girl "capturing" skills to "capture" real girls since his life depends on it. Each character gets a deep and valuable background that helps drives the story and makes you appreciate them. The character backgrounds are also very touching and you can see the hero shine in a way you never expect a person like him could even though he hates to deal with real life.
The anime also follows closely with the manga and flows beautifully giving you more of what I think the author wants you to feel when watching and/or reading his story.
Also when the story starts to become dry and redundant the author throws a twist that turns the direction into a story that is deeper and more complex than you could have expected. It is not so complex though that you can not follow but it does leave you wanting more after each chapter.

Overall this is a good thinker manga that makes you think about love in a whole new way that most never thought about and its funny too!

This is the rare kind of shonen that u can't just find anymore. The main character... what can i say hes freaking awesome, and i love how they do the strong yet made fun of main character (intelligence wise). I want to see a plot twist. I could seriously see this as an anime it would be amazing.

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.

Fantastic Manga but....

Yes i agree with the people that either like,love or adore the manga.Haven't got a chance to watch the anime, but will try too. I caught up with the manga and am currently waiting for the next chapter.biggrin So far the manga is on my favorites list. Also the only reason i gave the manga a nine and not a ten is because the story has almost nothing to do with elsie, and shes the main herione!! I didnt say all i said almost. I know she was the reason or one of the reasons Keima (may boy character) started conquering girls and got involved with all the devil/goddess stuff, but after that its like she was just a side character even though she lived with Keima and kinda helped him conquer the girls. All through the story i was expecting her to show some amazing power or something like that but she didnt): Well the series is not over so maybe she'll be more like the main girl character later on......(hopefully)

Excellent series with original ideas and nice pacing. The newest arc (109-ish->) is simply brilliant. Keima is a refreshing protagonist for harem series and I really like the other characters too. Anime will begin in next month, hopefully it will be as good!

This series can be very funny and touching. Some people might have a problem with the basis of God capturing girls as if their objects, but every "capture" is touching in a way and the girls are very complex compared to other harem series. This manga is very funny and enjoyable if your into comedy or harem, not to mention the devil girl is insanely cute.

It's exacly how I like a manga:
The story is light-hearted with comedy, romance and light challenges.
The main character takes some time to get used to, but now I like his strange attitude to reality really much.
And the girls are not only cute, they are also presented with emotional deeps, which you don't see in most mangas.

To make it short: I love this manga.

I'lll hope he gets all flags for his RL-harem-ending!
