The title is 'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai: Kami to Akuma to Tenshi', written by Mamizu Arisawa and illustrated by Tamiki Wakaki. It was released on May 19, 2009 but until now it still isn't translated in English. I've been searching all over the internet but I only found the raw version so I decided to ask B-T for help. I know this is not famous but I want to read it no matter what.
Please do tell me if I need to put more details. I'll be looking forward to your reply. Thank you very much.

such LNs usually buy their popularity from the main story, and are either side-stories or adaptations or re-telling of the tale. For side stories, it is meant for fans of the original series. For re-telling, more like half the time its way worse than the original product.
So it is highly unlikely to have the same or greater success than the original manga, and similarly it cannot stand alone as a LN series itself. So I would say no, it wont be as successful, despite how good volume 1 was written. Volume 2 is not as good in my opinion though, though still not bad.

Do you know a bit what is really different between the LN and the anime/manga?

Nishio 's successful Death Note novel (a conventional novel, not a light novel) has an original storyline that fits into the DN world but plays out in a very much different way from the original. People who have no idea of the manga can pretty much follow it without any difficulty.
IMO its readership, likely consisted of detective story lovers and DN movie audience, does not overlap with that of the manga and likely has surpassed it, mainly due to it being less of a commitment to finish (one volume only), a mature presentation (not a manga / light novel), and an intriguing story that the general reading public welcomes.

Just like how Keima's conquest differs from every girl, I could say that it is a bonus story of the manga, as in OVA of the anime. I can't understand japanese characters but this I can say, there are lots of information/secrets in the light novel that was never mentioned neither in manga nor in anime. There was one information leaked that I knew, it was about the character Yoshino Asami, when I shared this information to my friends and co-TWGOK fans, I'm surprised that almost all of them asked me for the light novel.

Also, @SZH, do you know the Chinese titles?
