Keima Katsuragi can score with any girl he wants… provided she’s not real. A legendary master of Japanese dating sims and often referred to by other players as the God of Conquests, Keima is a classic nerd in real life and isn’t even all that interested in girls with more than two dimensions in the first place! Unfortunately for Keima, his personal preferences cease to be of any importance when he accepts a challenge to what he thinks is an internet game, only to discover the he’s actually made a deal with a demon!

Posted On May - 14 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

SYNOPSIS:
Seeking the right to keep her magical flask, Kobato has been working as hard as she can to ease the pain in others’ hearts. Unfortunately, there are some jobs that seem to defy even her ability, and one of those has become far more personal than she should have ever allowed it to become.

 

The nursery where Fujimoto works is in trouble, and nothing Kobato can do seems to make things any better. Worse, while her magic healing flask is filling with kompeitos, the negative emotions she pulls from the others that she helps, she cannot tell Fujimoto about how she herself truly feels, and Ioryogi knows that the time given to Kobato in order to prove herself is rapidly running out. Will Kobato’s time run out before she can ease the heart of the one closest to her?
