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.

"Gotta catch em all!" This famous pokemon phrase might be fitting with this series in such a weird way. Instead, we get 'I can see the ending'.

Shonen Sunday has been getting quite bad financially. After the long running of a few hit series such as Conan, Kenichi, Hayate, Inuyasha, and bunch of others, they were not getting notable works. As all those long running series are encountering mannerism, it is pretty obvious they are getting less and less viewers due to lack of importing of fresh new series with good idea. This manga, Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai, is also meeting the point where read more

There comes that one manga you find at the corner of your eye to where you can enjoy it whether you like the genre it consists of or not, all in the essence of parody and satire. Parody can be an extremely difficult comedic flavor to pull off perfectly. Not only do writers have to analyze the aspects of the things that they are trying to parody in the first place, but they have to make all of the things that make a good comedy work. These things include great comedic timing, sharp jokes that don't feel forced, and great pacing in-between comedy segments. For read more

Before reading any of my reviews, please keep in mind that I am a VERY harsh critic. I do not hand out 10's easily and anything I rate 7 or higher I consider recommendation worthy.

Story: 9/10
Humor level is VERY high for anyone who (like me) is familiar with the visual novel genre. I've often joked around saying stuff like "Real girls are overrated, the only girl I'd ever want is an animé/manga/visual novel girl!" because I get attached to them rather easily (<3 Akane from ONE ~to the radiant season~, Mahoro from Mahoromatic and Hisui from Tsukihime). So after reading a couple chapters the only read more

Katsuragi Keima, a high school boy known to everyone as 'otamegane' (Otaku which means a die-hard anime fan, in his case a die-hard gal-ge fan, and Megane which means glasses) lives in the 2D world of gal-ge. One day, he suddenly receives an email on his PFP (parody of PSP) stating that he must choose whether or not to accept a challenge. Thinking that this was just another gamer giving him a gal-ge to play, he instantly accepts the challenge. To his surprise, a demon appeared before him and told him to make girls from the real world fall in love with him. (Sorry, couldn't read more

Both these serialisations follow male otaku who are "employed" to use their specialised knowledge to help others. They mostly help female characters, which subsequently result in a harem.

Manga: Kimi-iro Focus
how to make girls fall in love, make them fall on you with gentle words, and build a harem without noticing it, kimiiro no focus is all about on art romance and Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai is on games and romance.

keima and oji' have the level on how to conquer the girls feeling
