The media distribution site Crunchyroll announced on its forums on Thursday that it will simulcast the second season of the television anime adaptation of Tamiki Wakaki's manga The World God Only Knows (Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai). The series will stream on Crunchyroll on Mondays at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST) and will be available to users in the following regions: the Americas, Europe (except for Belgium, France and Switzerland), Australia, New Zealand, Bahrain, Cyprus, Israel, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syrian Arab Republic, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. Premium users will have access to Crunchyroll's episodes 30 minutes after their Japanese broadcast; free users will gain access to the episodes one week later.
The series is currently scheduled for an April 11 premiere in Japan. In the romantic comedy, Keima Katsuragi is a high school boy who is known as the "Capturing God" for his success at romance simulation games. However, thanks to a contract with a devil, he now has to capture the hearts of real girls to catch the runaway spirits hidden in those hearts.
Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine announced the first television anime series last April, which Crunchyroll also simulcasted. A prologue for the series was released prior to the first season's airing, bundled with the limited edition of the manga's 10th volume. The second season was also revealed the day before the first TV season began airing.
