Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai (神のみぞ知るセカイ; The World God Only Knows), is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tamiki Wakaki. The manga has been serialized in the Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine by Shogakukan since April 9, 2008.

The story is about Keima Katsuragi, a second-year high school student, is a freak of dating sim. He is known on the Internet as "The Capturing God" for his legendary skills to be able to "capture" any 2D girl in games. However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane (オタメガネ), a mixed word from otaku (オタク) and megane (メガネ; glasses). At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "capture" girls.

He accepts what is thought to be a challenge, and a demon from Hell nicknamed Elsee appears. She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching the runaway spirits. These spirits hide themselves inside the heart of maidens, and she suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by "capturing" their hearts — making them fall in love with the God; Keima himself. Appalled by the idea, Keima refuses after clarifying to Elsee that he is only interested in "capturing" 2D girls and that he detests reality. Nevertheless, with the contract already accepted, Keima would have to help Elsee no matter what; if they fail, both Elsee and Keima would lose their heads.

Until now, the manga itself has reached the 5th volume, plus a one-shot from total five one-shots. And this manga was the fourth highest-selling tankobon in Japan on the Oricon Comic Chart for the week of January 13 and January 19, 2009, with over 50,500 copies sold that week.
