Volume Guide
Volume 15
Volume 17

Volume 16 is the sixteenth volume of The World God Only Knows. Before, the cover illustrations of volumes 11 through 13 were very special, because they followed the rankings of favorite female characters which was part of the author's poll. But now, as seen with the three previous volumes, the cover illustration has changed patterns and displays a goddess and her hostess. Because of that, this time around, Yui Goidō and the goddess who resides within her, Mars, are placed on the front cover. On the back features a sick Keima in bed, with Ayumi and Chihiro standing to the side of him, all of them chibi-sized.


After receiving Yui and Mars as his allies, Keima has taken a step into conquering Shiori. After clearing the misunderstandings of his cross-dressing, Keima aids Shiori in completing her story, which she's been having a hard time to complete. In the end, this story becomes a voice of Shiori's own thoughts, which results in her re-capture and the emergence of the goddess within her: Minerva. But now, more trouble stirs as Haqua makes a blunder by speaking up about Vintage to Docrow Skull, while Keima attempts to clear flags with both Ayumi and Chihiro in his sick status.
