Book Review: The World God Only Knows Vol. 2

Review:  #696
Title:  The World God Only Knows Vol. 2
Series:  The World God Only Knows - 2nd volume
Author:  Tamiki Wakaki
Read Before:  no
Comments:  This second volume starts and finishes off not one, but two arcs.  The first is Kanon Nakagawa, a famous idol.  It is funny in her initial interactions with Keima, as she may be sweet and innocent on the outside but has a violent tendency.  Unfortunately, the plot still feels forced and the way her unique problem was overcame by Keima is hard to believe.  The second girl is Shiori, who is a librarian that doesn’t talk and has a lot of inner monologue.  Unfortunately, her arc seems even worse filled with leaps in logic and a lack of distinct hook.  Shiori’s plotline feels generic and there isn’t enough time to build up the chemistry and relationship between Keima and her, leading to a fairly bland end to the volume.
Rating:  6/10
