Book Review: The World God Only Knows Vol. 12

Title:  The World God Only Knows Vol. 12
Series:  The World God Only Knows - 12th volume
Author:  Tamiki Wakaki
Read Before:  no
Comments:  While the search for the Goddesses are continuing (and taking a painstakingly long time), Elsie’s detector goes off and Keima is dragged into another conquest yet again.  This time it is Akari, from the biology club, who is trying to convert a robot to the “perfect human”.  Of all the arcs out there, this might be one of the weirder ones and even then, it doesn’t fully resolve itself as it just reveals a bigger mystery.  The Goddess plot thread which had been hinted from a few volumes back is finally starting to gain traction with the return of a character that hasn’t had a big role in a while.  The humor still works in the volume and there are some funny pieces of art.  The somewhat faster pacing helps a lot.
