The Taming of the Shrew (じゃじゃ馬ならし Jaja uma narashi) is the 247th chapter of The World God Only Knows.
As the countdown speeds up, Keima realizes there's not much time left. He asks Dokuro to track the signal on Kaori's collar as they turn invisible using Elsie's hagoromo. Dokuro pins Kaori's location to a classroom but a Vintage member is watching over her. Keima starts to wonder how many of Vintage are actually in the school but concludes that it can't be many since they couldn't handle all the girls themselves and had to resort to the collars, this makes him realize that Vintage might be spread in other schools as well. Keima's pondering is soon interrupted by Dokuro who kisses him on the cheek stating that they haven't talked in a while.
Suddenly, a device alarms the Vintage member watching over Kaori, prompting him to leave the classroom through the window. Meanwhile, Elsie was able to remove the collar on Ayumi and replace it on a fake doll she made with her hagoromo.
Keima asks Tenri and Dokuro to hide as they enter the classroom. Kaori wakes up confused but Keima explains that she's been betrayed and became a target for the demons herself. Meanwhile, Elsie continues to save the other girls by placing collars on hagoromo dolls as Gira and the other Vintage members check on the targeted girls but find no abnormality.
Back at the classroom, Kaori expresses her dislike for her situation. After trying in vain to get the collar off, Kaori kneels and begs Keima to save her, catching him off guard and jumping on him. She states that there is no way Keima would leave her and that he must know of a way to get the collar off. Realizing that Keima must be someone who fights against the demons, she threatens to tell the demons about him unless he begs for her to let him save her.
- The Taming of the Shrew is a comedy by William Shakespeare.
