Volume Twelve is the 12th volume of The World God Only Knows. This is also a very special one, because fans from all over the world were able to vote for their favorite female character. And all of you have voted for the second place character, Haqua du Lot Herminium. And on the back is Keima again.


At Maijima High, the sports festival is soon to arrive. Keima and his classmates are getting ready for it, while Keima himself is worried about the goddesses. He scouts through a few of the girls before and during the festival, but does not receive the results he wishes for. After, he meets his next target, Akari Kurakawa, who seems to be a super-genius. But all this girl wants to make is the perfect human being. Keima is unable to find a solution to this girl at first, but seems to get better as time goes on. Before he could finish this conquest, she suddenly disappears without a trace for some reason. Keima leaves it alone, for he's more worried about the goddesses. The next goddess then appears in front of him: Apollo.

The World the Lil' Devil Only Knows IV

The World the Lil' Devil Only Knows IV


In the first panel, Elsie was happy about winning at the sport festival. Driven by this, she was determined to practice for the next year. Mari then reminded her that she doesn't need to use an iron bucket to train but she could put sand in it, which made Elsie realize how silly she was. Keima commented from the side if Elsie was going to be around next year. Elsie wondered if she should train either her legs or arms...

In the second panel, Haqua is surprised and a little furious when she saw her picture on the cover even though she wasn't in that volume. Elsie explained to her that Shiori was on the vol 1 poster when she wasn't in it either. Haqua was still dissatisfied and said that the producer needs to properly match the content, which she announced she will be on the cover again for volume thirteen. Elsie then stated that vol 13 will feature a naked Haqua(to match the contents), which made Haqua embarrassed.

Akari After 1



In the first panel, while Akari was walking at the school hallway, everybody avoided her because of a strange smell. Akari realized what was going on and sniffed her jacket. In the next panel, Akari asked Nikaido if she was really that smelly, which Nikaido said she doesn't know. Akari then said only her lab coat had the smell and the insides should be alright. She tried to smell inside her, only to say after that she can't tell all by herself about it.

In the last panel, Nikaido asked why Akari have stopped putting meat in the box, which she replied it was pointless. Nikaido then suggested Akari to explore more possibilities such as tofu, welsh onions,.... Nikaido then said with all that Akari can make a delicious hot pot, but Akari asked what possibilities are there exactly with the hot pot.

In the background, Apollo was unhappy because she got such horrible treatment just as she were making her appearance.
