Why does MAL say that this has 271 chapters? Thanks for the help.
Whenever there is a difference in chapter amount between manga reading site and MAL,its always about special chapters(120.5,etc) MAL tends to count those .5 chapters and add it to total amount

Ending took me like a brick to the face, not cuz it was bad but i just wasn't expecting him hooking up with chihiro at all...well at least it was wrapped up nicely despite being a tad rushed at the end...this is gonna be one of my fave mangas ever

Finally finished it. Feeling really heavy for the goddess hosts, but ultimately I couldn't be more glad it was Chihiro, the only girl to make Keima-kun cry alone. Her kneejerk rejection almost broke my heart after his confession scene got my jumping in the room. Well played. I was also genuinely happy for Elsie's ending, she had the purest wish from beginning to end and her treatment as a comedic relief punching bag only made her deserve happiness more in the end. I'll miss this series ;_;

Not too bad of a ride; there were some details that could've been fleshed out more. Despite her overly plainness, I also believe Chihiro is the best fit for Keima. She is not too aggressive in getting Keima to interact with the real world like Ayumi, but also not too passive like Tenri, Yui, or Shiori who would allow him to indulge in gaming and regress to his former self. Even though Chihiro's reason for liking him in the beginning sucks (imo), it was natural.

Good for Elsie on becoming an imouto!

The worst shippers in the history of anime and manga bar none,screwing over and leaving everything else unresolved just so worst girl could win.

Great manga. Well planned out. great characters, humor and art.

I understood the point of such an ending, but it won't stop me from being sad about it. I really wanted to end in a carefree way with him just messing around again.


Also Elsie just managed to screw all the readers over, what a surprise. One of the funnest manga I have read. Sad that it is over.

Manga is good. Story was good.

But the ending... I can literally see the ending, and I wish I never did.
It felt rushed and a huge mess with little sense to it, dropping the "Elsie is the big bad demon the unknown useless antagonists that we never met wanted to resurrect all this time for w/e purpose" straight out of nowhere, all this for Keima to end up with the girl that didn't appear for who knows how long while leaving all the other schyzophrenic girls still fawning on him with no resolution.


  • Why was Akari hostile to Elsie in the past?
  • Dokurou disappears who knows where for no reason.
  • Elsie is last boss then becomes Keima's sister, meaning she altered the past in a way she saw fitting, but then, the arc wasn't needed?
  • Girl antagonist was ultimately pointless ? Same for the n°1 popular girl in the past.
  • Satyr
  • ...


Seriously, who'd pick Chihiro amongst all the girls he seduced(he never even captured her technically speaking)?
She has nothing going for her compared to the others, and made no appearance in the Jupiter arc, so I just feel he basically picked her 'cause she cried.
Yeah yeah, she represents reality and symbolizes Keima's acceptance of the real, but he might as well have stuck with Yokkyun if things were going to end like this.
Also, why does she accept after he dumped her in such a harsh way and conquered other girls right under her nose? Grow some self-esteem already.
And finally, Elsie became a massive plothole for Chihiro's sake, Haqua ends up losing literally everything due to that as well. Way to treat the two characters that were there since the beginning.

I wasn't shipping anyone, but that's definitely not the kind of ending I was expecting. Manga could've well stopped after the goddess' arc, and I'd have been fine with it. But the way it went after the goddess' arc, it feels the author just tried to add to the story by bullshitting his way through, and that he cared less and less as time passed by.

This kind of ending isn't easy on my nerves, and it's always frustrating to see what I considered a great work getting more and more serious and further from what initially drew me in.

Oh well, I'm salty but not without reasons. It just doesn't feel conclusive and there was just too much BS in Jupiter arc for my taste.

Peaceful conclusion after the shitstorm that occurred around Keima.

I didn't ship Keima with anyone (except Tenri, but this would have been quite an unlikely end, except for fanservice).
Chihiro was perhaps a logical conclusion, she is the one who really made Keima regret what he has to do, and the one that he regretted bettraying the most.

Elsie... well, I found that on the last arcs she was often left on the side, so I lost a bit of the affection I had to her in the first half of the manga. I know what she's supposed to be and how she was "summoned", but the last events in the story remain half-explained about her (why she disappeared when the device broke or how she rewrote to put herself in Kaima's familly without altering previous events).

A great story, so great that another chapter for the epilogue for side characters would have been much needed.

Honestly I didn't liked Chihiro. Ayumi was the better girl but anyways I can definitely see the bitter truth.

Late reply.
I agree.. I finished this years ago and i felt like theres stuff that missing and it was like Axed?
It conclude almost nothing to the Vintage and Goddess story.

Elcie randomly wish to became Keima's Sister, Haqua gone and return same goes to Nikaido, Literally all Jupiter Goddesses talk each other about future and then ship sinks abruptly like that as if nothing ever happened not even given a proper chapter to close it.

Even Wikia doesnt explain a thing about it.
I dont remember a thing after the "Return to past" or Heart Jupiter Arc thing it probably was the downhill arc in entire series.

There was almost no Protagonist because they were late introduced to the point they didnt even made it out to the end aside from "1 Dimensional" vintage characters and Lune which literally also dumped.

I feel sad about the series tbh.
It does supposed to be and on Goddesses Revival arc.

I don't know what to say about the ending, but it doesn't make sense to me. After chapter 190 when all hell broke loose the one who's been with him the most were Tenri and the rest of the goddesses. But then suddenly 2 chapters before the end Chihiro appeared again out of nowhere and suddenly she's the winner. I don't hate Chihiro but i'd say Tenri or at least one of other main girls deserves Keima more than Chihiro who hardly even had a big role in the story.

Yeah i'm rather glad the anime doesn't have another season after i completed the manga. It's rather disappointing for a harem series that started off very good. Overall 6/10.

today i learned that 268 chapters aren't enough for such a great story. i only read it on my way to/from work, during breaks etc so it took me a few weeks to reach the end but still, for me it was an aweome story, i love the characters (except that Keima still didn't lose his gaming-addiction at the end) and how the story went, yet it's quite sad that there wasn't a happy end for everyone. might've been better if the goddesses would've been able to leave the bodies and wipe their hosts memories about everything that happened

Really really good manga. 9/10
I found so much enjoyment in reading this.. The end was a bit short or rather rushed I guess but the base it gave is good.
Keima x Chihiro simply is the best ship for the ending close above Keima x Tenri but it couldn't be helped, hints were dropped the whole time after all.
I do wish to know whats with Kaori 10 years after because it feels like there could've been something more with her.

I actually first picked this manga way back in 2013, before it was ending, at the time I didnt made it from the first few chapters, years later now finishing this manga, it is a very special feeling, anyone can agree how plain (but decent) the start is, it was an humble beggining that didnt hit for much.

Yet the mangaka managed to create this much, his creativity is to be applauded (sucks he never did anything else worth while after this).

Aside chapters around 225-255 which IMO were the worst of the last arc, the "heroine" was really lame, once the TWOK hit around chapter 50, it just keep improving and improving, giving us Godness arc that lived to my expecations and then really warping it all up in a way that connects everything since the beggining... did the mangaka planned this from the start?!
If so, he did some amazing planning here, good lord.

Once I was around the last 2 volumes, and started to see the dots connecting, Sensei being Dokuro, what Tenri knew and told Diana, genius.
While we can argue this arc was a bit rushed, it was surely planned to end like this, and the mangaka must be praised, because aside a few downs, this was a worthwhile ending to just a monumental series, that started with the simple premise of dating and conquering girls!
Insane how good the plot was, and I have always said, and will say, as an "harem" manga, it has some of the best cast of girls around, and a very unique and distintive art and design for each, when compared to other manga.

I will base myself on Urara to make a point of my biggest negative with the series... alot of build for an arc, for a girl, to very quickly dropped her and go to something else!
I mean it is impossible to not have the best girl rate changed over and over during the series, but some girls are clearly superior than others, Urara was such a great addiction, to follow up with such a disappointment that was Kaori's, sure at least it avoids being preditable, but I wanted to see way more of Urara, to my dismay.

The Godness status was brilliant in fixing this, for some of the best girls, making them permanent and vital, but you obviously can do it for all of them, and then you have Yui, which was such a promising one, pre and during conquest (seeing Keima turn into a female and Yui making him blush like that, was really fun), but the aftermatch of her conquest left her in a state that is all but a shadow and a total reversion of what she was, she felt like too much like a comic relief character to me, she was so cute, I wanted to see her being more shy, timid and moe again.

As for my ultimate best girl status... I still think that Diana is it for me, but with so many characters nearing the conclusion, she really didnt get much time, Tenri felt much more needed and important than Diana.-
Aside her, I always enjoyed Kanon, even more so with Apollo, her indian make up looks so wild, lively and cute!
And Ayumi... the mangaka really brought her back to live since being the first girl, she was the oldest here to be captured, the first one, and I had lost most my interest on her, and even her Godness Mercury isnt that interesting, but the development Ayami had during this arc was stellar and it ended me with not caring and even liking if they both ended up together!

But that role belonged to Chihiro, and I m fine with it, it was foreshadowed, and I already knew either way, she ending with Keima, lets be honest, she did far well enough to deserve the love, she was awesome in her own way, and if only she looked a bit more cute, I m sure there would be more people into her.

Dunno how can people favorite Elsie, but that twist of her being the suposed last boss came out of nowhere, but was surely interesting, a cool conection again to the beggining of the series, but here, I did feel it had potential to be a bit more developed thus delivering even more shock factor (it was also cool that Elsie decided to stay as his sister by the end).

I didnt follow the release of this manga and that was for the best, binge reading 260 chapters over 2 years, over three different sessions of around a week each, was an immense pleasure, and while I dont share the same adoration of Keima as many do, overall this cast was amazing, and I will leave this with alot of down right awesome memories.
This is how you make something that seems plain, excell, take it much further than we all could imagine, and just make it a fucking insane ride with an ending that leaves you in peace and just happy you picked and finished such a manga.

9.2/10 = 9

The ending left me so torn. I can definitely understand why it was Chihiro. Heck, if I were the author, I would have picked Chihiro as well. Thematically it just makes perfect sense.

With that said, after those 10 years, Tenri deserves to be happy darn it!
