Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai (Japanese: 神のみぞ知るセカイ lit. The World God Only Knows) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by none other than Tamiki Wakaki. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai is a mix of romantic comedy, parody, fantasy and even harem. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai was published in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday since April 2008. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai ended with 26 tankobon volumes on April 2014. A light novel adaptation by Mamizu Arisawa was published early 2009. The anime adaptation of Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai was produced by Manglobe Studios with Shigehito Takayanagi as the director and Hideyuki Kurata as the scriptwriter. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai made its big break on TV Tokyo on October 2010. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai ended with 12 short but fulfilling episodes on December of that year.
Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai follows dating sim master Keima Katsuragi, a second year high school student who wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends. He takes pride in being an avid player of gal games (video games that involve interactions with rather anime-styled pretty girls). He earned himself a reputation as the “God of Conquests” for his rather legendary skills of being able to “conquer” any 2D girl in variety of games. Back in real life, Keima is more known for being an “otamega” (a derogatory remark of being an otaku and glasses-wearing nerd) who everyone else considers as the intelligent yet gloomy geek with glasses. He received a peculiar email from an unknown sender offering him a contract to “conquer” girls. Being an avid dating sim master, he takes it as an invitation to a game challenge. He later finds himself chasing down real-life ladies in an attempt to help the peppy demon, Elsie de Lute Irma, capture “lost souls” who escaped from hell. Turns out, these evil spirits hide themselves inside the hearts of their host bodies and feeding off of their negative emotions. Left alone, these evil spirits will be strong enough to regain their original demon forms and leave chaos and destruction in its wake. Appalled at the idea since he is only interested in the 2D world, Keima is forced to help Elsie otherwise the purple collar on his neck, care of the contract he agreed upon, explodes. Keima must now put his dating skills to use as he makes girls fall in love with him in order to capture the evil spirits hiding inside their hearts.
Keima Katsuragi is the 17-year old high school student of Majima Academy who wants nothing more than spends most of his time playing dating simulation games. He is known on the Internet and other popular gaming circles as the “Capturing God” for his rather legendary and exceptional skills in winning virtual girls over. His life changed the day he signed a contract, which he initially though as a gaming challenge, to conquer girls who inadvertently are possessed by evil spirits who escaped from hell. He is now forced to chase down real-life women trying to win their hearts over else he will be beheaded when the purple collar around his neck explodes.
Elsie de Lute Irma is the 300-year old Spirit Hunter demon who is assigned to Keima to capture the lost souls who escaped hell. Under the premise of watching over him, he pretends to be Keima’s illegitimate sister. Although quite old age-wise, she can be somewhat childish, with a sweet and purely innocent personality. She is also clumsy and easily distracted. It was later revealed that she is actually a giant monster that was used to wreak havoc on Earth. She has grown to love the human world even choosing to become Keima’s real sister.
