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.

Chapter 92-101 giantess

140-144 were by far my favorite chapters because it's focused on role reversal

Overall, manga deserves a 6, the reason why I state this, read the review by zedor, he was able to word the same issues I had. Literally after chaoter 195ish

This comment is more about the anime than the manga

The anime is a bit crappy with what I call "filler". SSN 1: watch episodes: 1-3, 5-7, 9-11. SSN 2: watch 1,2, 5-7, 8.5-11. OVA: 2-3 (Tenri Arc), and all of SSN 3. The other episodes not mentioned are filler and don't have anything to do with the overall story and unfortunately focus on his love for 2D girls. Unfortunately, some of the most important heroines are not introduced until season 3, the GODDESS arc. Their character arcs are important and need to be told. You'll have to read the manga to learn about the others.

Let's be honest, a lot of people were salty with the ending. I included. That said, I will admit that this was one of the best story I have ever read. The world-building is amazing! The characters are relatable and understandable. Simply put - I LOVE IT.

It was a great story

If i did not love the whole premise and especially the main character so much, I would say this is a common story that used quite a lot imagination to camouflage itself as something different.

The main character is by far the most likable and interesting thing in the whole story. I am sure whoever reads this coming from the anime, will know what I mean.

One of the biggest + of this anime, is that it uses no excessive ecchi scenes (you know, the ones that make the manga/anime look like hentai) to attract people. It is all about the story. Mind you I am a fan of mild ecchi, but I feel delighted to see that even "new" manga do not need to pull the half naked card, so they can win their audience.

It is mentioned by other comments too, but it seems a lot of people gave a bad mark, cause they did not like the ending.. or more like who the hero chooses by the end. For me it was not the girl/s I was rooting for, but that did NOT ruin the end. I actually was wondering what kind of ending it would have, cause I have read the comments before. I was pleasantly shocked to find out that the ending was nice and satisfying.

No offence to people that disliked it, but I would hate it more if it was left TOTALLY open, leaving in in the imagination of the read what happens after. Like Keima said; a game without an ending, is a shity game.

Loved reading it and felt satisfied with it's ending.

I want to point out that I do not believe it is a perfect story. The 10 again is mostly because I liked Keima and I was fully pleased throughout the whole manga. There are times that it feels like they were added in to fill up more volumes, while on other points it feels the story gets too rushed. Amusingly enough, Keima mentions something alike withing the story, which actually makes the experience more funny and lighter for me.

Whoever like me ends up reading from comments here that he actually ends up with someone, enjoy like I did wondering and thinking who it will be. For better or worse, I think his choice was not bad. If anything, it was exactly fitting for him.

Would read this again for sure!

It was one of the best mangas I have ever read everything was pretty good but the last arc was pretty rushed in my opinion and the ending just destroyed the whole thing for me.The one character I didn't want him to end up with and that's what happened but still it's a great read.I loved the manga so much that when the ending happened I died a bit but it's still worth a read.It would have been a 10 if I didnt dislike the ending.

At first, I didn't know what to expect. The premise was different from all the romance mangas that I usually read (they're more "normal"). It was bothersome at first, what with all the short seemingly unrelated stories and what not, so I was thinking of dropping it. Thankfully, it starts making headway at around chapter 55 or so, and picks up the pace in 50 or so chapters.

The comedy surrounding the MC and his view of the world is giggle-inducing; his actions are well-within his character untill the very end. As for other characters, most of the main heroines are well presented and explained. In any case, everything up to the last big arc (chapter ~190) makes sense more or less and is very well worth a read.

The troubling part comes after that. Pacing is all over the place, stuff seems to be invented on the spot so that the story would make sense and the ending is horrible, done over 2 chapters. There's no proper closure for the parties involved, we just have to take it at face value that everything is okay. With how it was handled, it doesn't matter who the chosen girl is - it's just poor writing. Sadly the last arc+shoddy ending casts a big shadow over an otherwise well drawn and well written piece of work.

Endure the First 30 chapters

If you are not into the short arc type stories, don't worry, the plot eventually comes and everything comes to place

While not entirely satisfied at the ending, the author has hinted at it throughout the manga, and it turns out as well as it could be

the protagonist will indeed make his decision, and while some may be unhappy with it, it is probably the only choice that makes sense and doesnt turn this into a harem for life kinda thing

also, while u come to dislike the otaku nature of his, you see his true genius as it goes on

regardless, although a couple parts here and there could use more depth, the author did a good job of creating the best possible ending, creating a "world god only knows"

It dragged a bit and the ending wasn't that great! But it honestly was an interesting concept and it was definitely entertaining - it's actually my favorite manga out of everything I've ever read! What I especially like is the main protagonist's character growth. It happens subtly but it's most certainly present, and it's a little heart warming when you think about how much has has gone through. Of all things, I think this is the manga's shining point.
