The World God Only Knows Anime Greenlit

Posted on: April 2, 2010


"We're going to be an anime!"

Remember when I said that popular manga The World God Only Knows was only a matter of time and material away from becoming an anime? Well, according to Moon Phase comments and a few leaked  images, Shogakukan has pulled the trigger on one of its most popular properties, and a Kaminomi anime is mere months away!

Given the archetypal nature of its characters, my friends and I have already started taking bets on which typecast seiyuu will slide into the various roles of the Capturing God’s targets, but that’s a post for another time. With its Shogakukan ties, do you guys think that there’s a chance in hell that VIZ will pick up the manga and the anime, or will they both continue to wallow in obscurity due to the vast cultural gap?

I’m always one for more anime. After the high I got from Baka no test I’m up for more strange and interesting anime to watch. And I always love cultural gaps. I see them as a way to learn more about another culture. So I hope they do pick this up. It would be one good watch.

had to read the entire series (need sleep…) but know I can go
