The World God Only Knows Manga Slated to End on April 23
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
This year's 20th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Tamiki Wakaki's The World God Only Knows manga will end in the next issue on April 23. The 26-page chapter will conclude the supernatural romantic comedy series that launched in 2008.
The wraparound jacket band on the manga's 25th compiled volume announced last month that that the series will end in the 26th volume. The series inspired three anime series which streamed on Crunchyroll, and Sentai Filmworks released the first two seasons on home video in North America. The series also inspired several sequel and spin-off OVAs.
The story follows dating sim master Keima Katsuragi, who wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends. But when the so-called "Capturing God" answers a mysterious email from an unknown sender, Keima finds himself chasing down real-life ladies in an attempt to help the peppy demon Elsie de Lute Irma capture "lost souls" escaped from the depths of hell. Now, lest the explosive collar around his neck detonate, Keima must convince various girls to fall in love with him in order to scare out the souls hiding in their hearts.
