Serialized In: Shonen Sunday

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 Elsee, 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.
I had picked this series up a little while ago, no one in particular had recommended it, i just happen to seek out new manga on my own when i get an itch waiting for new chapters of alot of stuff. what immediately stood out for me was the artwork, in short, very refined and fitting to the storie's demographics.
be wary of hilarity that could induce minutes of giggling fits.
I also read this out of curiosity. It's quite good for laughs.
this manga made me laugh my ass off , it's nice and relaxing
I really like Elsee she's one of my favorite female leads. I really wish she got more screen time.
Elsee's a bit too ditzy for me to like as a female lead. I find it funny how after the "heroine" forgets, everyone around seems to forget that Keima was chasing her for a while. It's surprising that he hasn't been labeled as a playboy yet.
Oh, does anybody else imagine Keima with Lelouch from Code Geass voice every time he says "I can see the ending" and every time something goes wrong?
^ Now if this gets a drama CD or anime I want Fukuyama Jun to play Keima. Since this manga makes fun of otaku culture, having FukuJun just adds more funny moments.
I enjoy this manga as a light read. I do hope Syngery would animate this after Cross Game, they animate a new shounen sunday anime every April. But would this work as a morning anime? Hayate No Gotoku is otaku targeted and did fine in the time slot, I guess this would do fine too.
Kami would make a great late night anime. Hayate was better after it moved to late night for season 2.
^ You have a point there but hopefully they won't animate until there are 100 chapters or more to avoid fillers. As for the VA, Fukuyama Jun would be perfect since Kami is like Lelouch being an otaku.

READ ONLINE HERE
I've been reading this weekly for a while, and I think it's quite good. It's funny, the characters are good, and the plot is decent. Love the way the girls heart is caught. Would be awesome to use game-tactics in dating and stuff x)
Shiori doesn't have a goddess in her, I think it's just stalking her.
