神のみぞ知るセカイ(Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai)
http://i894.photobucket.com/albums/ac147/danisco123/anime%20preview/67424.jpg

Keima Katsuragi, a second-year high school student, is an avid bishōjo game player. He is known on the Internet as "The God of Conquests" (落とし神 Otoshi-gami) for his legendary skills to be able to "conquer" any 2D girl in games. However, in his actual school life, Keima is known as otamegane (オタメガネ), a derogatory portmanteau of the two words otaku (オタク) and megane (メガネ, "glasses"), and is considered nothing but an intelligent yet gloomy geek with glasses.

At the start of the series, Keima receives an e-mail offering him a contract to "conquer" girls. When he accepts it, thinking it is an invitation to a game, a demon from Hell named Elsie appears. She asks for his cooperation to help her in catching runaway spirits: Loose Souls. These spirits hide themselves inside the hearts of girls, and Elsie suggests that the only method to force the spirits out is by "conquering" the girls hearts, making them fall in love with him and filling up the gaps which the runaway spirits hide in. Interested only in video game girls, however, Keima is appalled by the idea, and refuses the assignment as he has no romantic real life experiences whatsoever. Nevertheless, with the contract already agreed, Keima has no choice but to help Elsie no matter what, as they will be beheaded if they fail.

Aside from focusing on Keima and Elsie's adventures on capturing spirits, the series also makes fun and parodying common and popular cliches about dating sims, anime character stereotypes, and pop culture.

Keima is one of us as VN gamer.

Unless you want to be a VN debugger in Japan. >D I haven't read the manga, and therefore don't know what he's going to do about getting through life after graduating high school (if that was ever even brought up), but I'm guessing that is what he'll do.

Watched the first season it was ok. But my only problem with it is its a anime you could jump into with out knowing anything about it.

I've watched both seasons of this, and if/when it comes back I'll watch more. I quite liked it, but was disappointing at how preachy it becomes at points in the 2nd season.

Kemia was all but a real Kami in the first season, using his mind and VN experience to guide real life situations. He had a good grasp of the difference btween reality and games, and just preferred the games. However in the 2nd season they decided this wasn't realistic or something, and so had the viewers be bombarded with how horrible it was that he played these games all the time, and how he was just killing himself by playing them.

It irritated me a bit as a fan of the first season, and of VNs in general. I don't know if the manga took the same route, but I could see corporate pr written all over it and it makes me wonder if that was from the creator or from the publisher/producers.

Or does any of the techniques actually work in real life, much less on like 20 different girls. Neither do we have sexy devils like HAQUA falling for us :(

I found it, it's season 2 episode 9, about 7:13. I made a gif:

I thought that they were making season 3 for this since they just made some preview of some of the girls for the next arcs

What happened to that are they cancelling it? Or they just simply didn't plan to make a season3 from the start?

It depended on the BD/DVD sales. They made the preview just in case, since they can't predict how it will sell. Season 1 had a similar preview(Haqua), but the sales were decent. Season 2 sales were not that great, so they currently have no plans to make the 3rd season.

At the very end of the OVA Elsie says "Tsu..zu..ku" which means - to be continued, but they could just be trolling us :P

Wait a sec, I remember reading somewhere that the third season had been green lit. If they don't continue this series it'll just be another one to add to the pile of great and permenently incomplete series.

Only ones I have in that pile currently are: Sekirei (No third season yet), Princess Resurrection (Del Ray stopped at vol. seven), and High School of the Dead (on hiatus)

In the episode 00 (or whatever you want to call it) they showed the first 8 conquest,
but the two season only reach 7.
I want Tsukiyo route T_T

The problem is, even if they make season 3, it would still not reach the good parts of the manga. If season 3 was Tenri, Tsukiyo and Manami (and some other random stuff), it would just end at the start of the "main arc".

Also, they didn't show any conquests in episode 0.

Probably 1 25min OVA. Don't expect much from it, it's just a nice bonus if you're reading the manga. If you only watched the anime, it probably won't make much sense since they can't do much in 25min and it will just end at the beginning of the next (biggest) arc. That OVA also skips a few mini-arcs (after the ending of the 2nd season).

Anyways, a lot of OVA's tend to just rush things, so 1 episode maybe.

Or it can be 1 ova with like 40 mins, but I'm sure that it will be awesome anyways

It will be 1 for now. It's gonna be bundled with vol.18 of the manga. It's the same how Kiss x Sis OVAs get released.

Edit: It's vol.19, not 18.

I don't usually go through both anime and manga, especially if I had gone very far with either one, because I would have developed preconceptions by then. I wouldn't want my mental "images" to be destroyed.

Since I went through the whole manga, I will give the anime a pass.

This happens for me with books, which is why i kinda hate movies from books i've read but it is fun to see it all in action anyways. But idk how u develop a mental image of either of those as they have images...O_O.

@Nobu:

My condolences. :P

I suppose for light novels and english novels I might not form a strong impression (I'm too lazy to imagine entire scenes...it would take too long for me go through the whole plot). But with manga and anime, the effects are pretty pronounced. That's the reason I don't read Gintama's and Danshi Koukousei's mangas for example.
