Volume 23 is the 23rd volume of The World God Only Knows. With Urara's conquest coming to an end, a new threat and new conquest target - elementary school queen Kaori Yuuzaki (as shown by the front cover) - appears. Keima and his childhood friend Tenri will have to defeat the queen to sabotage Vintage's plan. As Keima's every action in the past alters the future he has known, will he succeed to create the future he wants while his time is running out? The back of the cover features a young, cross-dressing Keima holding a fan, trying to create a gag.
