    The World God Only Knows Manga Review

     

    I freaking loved The World God Only Knows. I loved it so much that I even watched the anime. I’ve seen the anime about 50 times already haha. Every character kept me intrigued and made me want more out of them. The maid idea of the manga was kinda dropped towards the end but honestly if the manga didn’t change I wouldn’t have enjoyed it so much. It would sooner or later get boring and people would enjoy it as much.

     

    The Plot of The World God Only Knows

    Katsuragi Keima, a high school boy who is know to everyone at his school as a die hard gaming fan. One day he suddenly receives an email on his PFP (Pardoy of PSP) stating that he must choose whether or not to accept a challenge. Thinking that this was another gamer giving him a dating sim to play, he instantly accepts the challenge. To his surprise a demon girl falls from the sky and tells him that he needs to make real girls fall in love with him or else he will die.

    The story was very unique and interesting and had a frat way of keeping you reading. Unlike regular romance manga, the protagonist has no interest in 3D girls. Period. Along his line of flags, he occasionally comes upon even more intense events showing that thought the story he does come to take a liking to a few of the girls. However, on the later chapters he seems to take less interest in the girls. Which kinda made me think it was a little less entertaining. But for a harem, this one actually makes sense. By this I don’t mean the story line is totally made sense of. The protagonist actually goes through different events with the girls that he needs to conquer. Unlike other harems where the protagonist literally has girls falling in love with home for no other reason than he is the main character.

     

    The Art of The World God Only Knows

    The art is very well done. While it can alternate simple and detailed art structures, it was always used at the appropriate times. So it didn’t seem like the writer was just being lazy or anything. For the more comedic and humor scenes, the more simple form was used and for the romantic and serious scenes it was more detailed art form. The art used in some cases can amplify the mood the author is trying to express.

     

    The Characters of The World God Only Knows

    The character in this manga were very different from your typical romance characters. Some were very unique while the others where completely clichéd. The most simple character in my opinion was Elsea. Demon, lived for 300 years but looks like a high school student. She is quiet clueless and stupid but at the same time you find yourself loving her anyway. The only character who really got on my nerves was chihiro. Her attitude, and the whole I like this guy, no, this guy. That was bull crap. After a while she became a better character. Most of the characters in the manga were all very different and amusing to read about.

    Overall, I would say that this is one of the best manga I have ever read. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading romance/harems.
