High-schooler Katsuragi Keima loves girls, but not in the conventional sense. No, the girls he loves are that of the digital realm, pixelated princesses of the various dating sim games he spends every waking moment playing. In fact, his lady love has earned him the title of "capturing god" amongst the online gaming community since he can successfully win over any game heroine. Unfortunately for Keima, this title has drawn some unusual attention. One day he receives a strange email challenge and becomes roped into helping a demon (Elsie) capture escaped demon souls. The trick: in order to capture said souls, he must first capture the hearts of the girls they've lodged themselves into. Yikes.

When I first read the synopsis for The World God Only Knows, I have to admit I thought it was going to be a corny, lovey-dovey show, but it quickly proved me wrong. God Only Knows is more of a comedy than anything, and had me in hysterics from the first episode. Much of this comes from Keima's lack of interest in the real world. He regularly uses gaming references to explain the world around him, comparing real people to classic game character stereotypes or dismissing something/someone because it's been overdone in his games and therefore not worth his time. But as dorky as this makes him sound (and trust me, he is a dork), Keima also manages to pull off this completely cool character profile, because he really is GOOD at what he does. You can't help but love him. Add to this his partner in this whole mess, Elsie, the most adorable demon you've ever seen, who can't seem to get anything right no matter how hard she tries (and she tries hard). More often than not, she's causing Keima grief, like when she attempts to help clean house and blows up half a room!

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.

I am giving it 5 stars because it deserves it. I found it to be hilarious with its jokes and story line. It is in Japanese with English subtitles, which I generally prefer for anime unless it is one of the shows that I grew up with like DBZ or Outlaw Star. The only bad thing is that Amazon is missing Episode 2 of Season 1.
