An anime where the character is a gamer who uses his gaming skills to woo girls in real life is not something you will often find. The World God Only Knows is an anime series that explores this plot device, where one male character interacts with several female characters. But don’t compare The World God Only Knows to a typical harem anime. The main character captures the heart of girls with well thought out plans from his experience of playing dating sims.
Another reason that makes this anime unique is the incorporation of dating sim games with real-life in a fantasy comedy setting. The humor is sensible and quite erratic. The overall story and characters are excellent, with many plot developments and unlikely situations. While the main plot revolves around rom-com, The World God Only Knows also has the right amount of emotional moments that will make you cry.
The anime has three seasons and four OVAs. If you are planning to watch The World God Only Knows, then watch it according to this order.
