JBN's TWGOK Abridged is the title of the JaceBoat Network's abridged series based on The World God Only Knows anime. This series took about a total 6 months on production for the first episode. Despite the work and dedication, the first episode was immediately blocked from YouTube upon upload. However, eventually, the episode went back up.
JBN's TWGOK Abridged is a parody that keeps the plot relatively unchanged but drastically changes the personalities of the main characters. For example, the character Keima from the original was a genius who could conquer any dating simulator, while the abridged Keima is incompetent and can barely conquer a single dating simulator.

- Although the first episode took 6 months to create, all of the editing was done in the final 3 weeks.
- In the first episode, "The Next Day" transition plays the stage starting sound from Sonic Adventure 2, to go along with the "City Escape" bit at the very beginning of the episode.
- The first episode was edited in VideoPad Video Editor, leading to random cuts in audio across the video. Episodes 1 Remake through 4 were made using Vegas Pro 11. Episode 5 and on were created using Vegas Pro 13.
- In the first episode, much of the content was based to be Japanese, including the arrangement of character's names, along with the use of honorifics. After the first episode, this was discarded for the most part. Episode 5 saw the return of honorifics when Kanon referred to Keima only as "Keima-kun".
- In the first 3 episodes (Episode 1, Episode 1 Remake, and Episode 2), Elsie was voiced by 3 different people, one being a guy.
- Bit and pieces of the first few episodes contain music from Homestuck, Undertale, and a Homestuck fan comic named Hexane.
- This series' depiction of Elsie is inspired in part by Asuna from SomethingWitty's SAO Abridged.
- The first uncensored episode was Episode 3, in which the only use of the word "Fuck" was right before the credits.
- Sound effects are used from a variety of old games and shows, including the likes of F-Zero, Metal Gear, and a variety of Hanna Barbera shows.
- The voice actress for Sora Asuka, Pistacchieo, was originally supposed to only voice Elucia starting in episode 3. However, an emergency recasting for Elucia in episode 2 saw Jay Levi voice the character. After her performance, Jay Levi was fully casted as the character, rather than filling the role temporarily, and Pistacchieo was allowed to voice the next main character, Sora Asuka.
- Episode 4 came out incredibly late due to recastings, school issues, and personal issues. (It was originally supposed to be a Halloween special and came out on Christmas.)
- The character Kanon had been recasted twice before her first actual appearance due to a variety of reasons.
- Like Episode 4, Episode 5 came out extremely late, with its original expected release date to be March 3rd, and its actual release to be [TBD].
- Episode 5 was the first episode for the method of voice directing to be used, with Kanon's VA, garbageGothic being the only one voice directed in the episode.
- Recording for the Light Novel started as early as production on Episode 5.
