Editorial Reviews

Keima is a dating sim champion. Cute girls are rendered powerless by his irresistible game playing techniques. Too bad things aren't that way in the real world. That is, until his tempting game playing causes a real live-and very bubbly-cute-demon hunter named Elsie to materialize! Now Elsie wants Keima to help her free hot girls from sneaky demons who secretly possess them. Rack up the love points with the devilishly fun anime The World God Only Knows.

Customer Reviews

The characters are interesting, the story is fantastic, and the music is also great.
A. Magdaleno
The series was made for a high definition experience, so nothing is upscaled and everything looks really good.
Keitaro004
All in all a very enjoyable watch with some very comedic moments along with some heart touching scenes.

This is one of the best comedic Anime series I've ever watched in my 7 years of Anime fandom. The main character, Keima, is the highlight of this show. His views on the real life and the 2D world is really interesting (and pretty much funny), so watching him, a boy who have never even had a real conversation with a real girl, capture the interest of real girls is really impressing. Each new girl is a new "arch" and those episodes is usually about 2-3 episodes long. The other episodes are like a "bonus" to add to his character. To see this guy conquer real girls by using knowledge from visual novels is hilarious, and best of all: it works! Together with his co-worker sent from hell, Elsie, he uses her power to his own advantage after being "tricked" by her to capture spirits who reside in the girls empty hearts. The method this guy use is the most effective one: Filling the girls heart with love!

The quality on the HD-visuals is fantastic. The series was made for a high definition experience, so nothing is upscaled and everything looks really good. The animation is fantastic with much movement from the characters. The designs fits each characters stereotypical behavior and The audio quality is fairly good, as it's only stereo. HD stereo, that is, so you won't really make good use of your home cinema with this one. The extras are the usual: Creditless Intro and endings. There is also a music video feature, but not really worth to mention. Around 5 Kanon songs with the videos ripped right from the episodes here. It also has the very first OVA lasting for 1 minute, merged into the first episode. Nice touch. All the voices (In JP, don't know about the dub) fits perfectly and the theme songs will most likely be remembered, because: It's entirely in english.

This review is based off of the subtitled version so I will only be commenting on the story.

Keima Katsuragi is known as a capturing god or the "God of Conquest", he is the best at conquering every girl in dating sim games to the point where he doesn't even look at real life girls anymore because they don't follow the rules laid out in his games, as such he comes across as very moody and unapproachable.

One day Keima receives an email with a contract to assist someone with capturing the hearts of girls, he naturally accepts thinking this for a game, but in fact it was actually a contract with a demon named Elsie to capture the hearts of "real" girls in order to release escaped demons that have taken up residence in their hearts. You can imagine the hilarious nature of what is asked of Keima, to actually converse with and make real life girls fall in love with him, if he doesn't certain death lies ahead of him.

the story is fairly simplistic and at times predictable but it doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the series, of watching Keima struggle with his new task all the while getting help from a clumsy yet adorable Elsie. All in all a very enjoyable watch with some very comedic moments along with some heart touching scenes.

Is a Great series ,The World God Only Knows , 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 Erushii, a devil from hell, to help her incatching 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 lol. Oh The English language cast is perhaps a bit "older" they sound okay good. Great Series Buy it!!

Only 12 episodes, bah! But we have season 2 just released. Hurrah! Of all the new anime series popping onto Blu-Ray, one might have difficulty in selecting which to purchase. There are tons of amazing releases by Sentai (these guys), but they are a little more expensive since they aren't as established as Funimation. Speaking of Funimation, those guys have upped the ante 200%. They are re-releasing hordes of older Geneon and ADV (both companies defunct) series since they have acquired the license to do so. Sentai is actually the successor of sorts to ADV.

So what to buy? Well Clannad and Clannad After Story are top votes. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood if you're one of the rare few who don't own it yet (each half of the season selling for $40 or so on Amazon on Blu-Ray - sick pricing). A solid runner up is this series. I'll tell you why. Or you can watch the first episode with Japanese audio and English subs on a particular streaming (and fully LEGAL) site that rhymes with Fruchyroll. Hard code to crack I know.

This series is all about the characters. You will probably love them. They do tend to exude quite a bit of anime stereotypes, but they seem a little fresher than the tried and true character formula. In particular, I couldn't help but feel bad for/admire Keima (the main guy). He is so immersed in his virtual world of dating sims (which are hugely popular in Japan) and can't seem to function normally around real life folks. He is inadvertently contracted by a cute demon named Elsie due to her mistaking his VR conquests of females as real life female conquests. This VR Casanova now has to make girls fall in love with him in order to exorcise spirits that have buried themselves in their hearts.
