Volume Thirteen is the 13th volume of The World God Only Knows. As seen with the past two volumes, the cover illustrations is very special, because fans from all over the world were able to vote for their favorite female character on the author's poll. With this poll, the third place character, Kanon Nakagawa, and the goddess within her, Apollo, were placed on the cover. The back features Keima.
Kanon has been taken to Keima's place, after being stabbed by Fiore's Vintage dagger. Being in mortal danger from the spell of the dagger, she only has a week to live. Diana aids Keima by telling him what the magic circle that Apollo made in the sky means. She also tells him about how she has four other sisters remaining. Wishing not to fail again, Keima is willing to do whatever he can to find the remaining goddesses in order to cure Kanon. After finding probability that the remaining goddesses are absolutely in Keima's previous captures, he selects the five most likely goddess candidates. Will he find the goddesses to cure Kanon within the time limit of one week he is given?
