Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has revealed that a third series of The World God Only Knows has been green-lit. The magazine also announced that a spin-off OVA, featuring the idol character Kanon, will be produced.
The first two series, inspired by Tamiki Wakaki’s 2008 The World God Only Knows manga series (currently on its 20 volume), were released in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
The story follows Keima Katsuragi, a high-school student who can seduce any girl… in a dating sim. Online he is known as “The God of Conquests”, but in real life he’s just seen as an intelligent and slightly gloomy geek. When Keima receives an email offering him a contract to conquer girls, he accepts, thinking it’s a game invite. But when he finds a demon from Hell named Elsie standing in front of him, he has no choice but to win the hearts of real girls in order to capture loose souls. If Keima fails, an explosive collar around his neck will detonate.
