Book Review: The World God Only Knows Vol. 13

Review:  #718
Title:  The World God Only Knows Vol. 13
Series:  The World God Only Knows - 13th volume
Author:  Tamiki Wakaki
Read Before:  no
Comments:  This volume surprisingly moves forward the plot involving the search for the remaining goddesses a lot faster than before, making it a much better read, better pacing and more interesting in general.  Kanon is near death and with a short time limit; Keima ends up creating an accelerated plan to find the rest of the goddesses in the hopes of their combined power being able to save Kanon.  The result is an interesting scenario in which Keima instigates a massive event, in order to five-time the love interests.  The difficulty comes into play where Keima has to build the relationship again, or at least reactivate them, with each girl via encounters on the same day, and there are really only so many hours to the day, which makes for a tough schedule and a hectic frantic rush.  The search doesn’t end with the volume which hooks the reader into wanting the next volume.  The humor holds up, particularly with Keima’s comments on describing the situation using gaming allusions.  It really feels now that we have a clear objective to go towards, instead of just having another girl of the week for Keima to capture the lost soul of, and it’s very clear from this volume that it benefits.
