The World God Only Knows

"The World God Only Knows" is an ongoing manga series. I won't do much hard work... here is a copy and paste from Mangaupdates

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 Elsee, 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.

Now, my version of this story.

Katsuagi Keima is a regular high school goer. He is a hardcore dating sim gamer, and can be (always) found playing games even during the classes. In the gaming world, he is known as the Capturing God, because he has been able to capture every video game girl ever made. He likes all beautiful girls... but here is the catch. He only likes beautiful girls found in games (referred as 2D girls) and totally hates real life girls (referred as 3D girls). The real life girls hate him just as much, and he is popular in school by the name Otamegane (Otaku+Megane, Otaku = geek, Megane = Glasses). And this is when a Demon named Elsia comes to him and tells him to make real life girls fall in love with him, and fill the gaps in their hearts, which will then enable Elsea to capture the evil spirits, that is known only to hide in hearts of young girls.

I rate this as one of the most refreshingly new concepts for a story I've ever come across. Not only that, the way Keima makes the girls fall for him fun too... (At least I enjoy it to the maximum)

And his punchlines...
1> "I can already see the ending" -> Pre climax
2> "Let me tell you something good..." -> Notions and rules are about to be stated by the capturing god... :P

Snapshots ::>

Serious Addiction to games...

The God of the Gaming world

The "Let me tell you something good." moment :P

And yes, the girl in the snapshots is the demon who is in contract with Keima...

I recommend everyone and anyone to read this... this is entertainment guaranteed. Find at or or :)


After a lot of consideration.... I'll buy this when it's licensed in English :D
