If any of you read my previous review of the volume 555-GODDESS, you may remember that I told you that that volume had mistakes and omissions from the original Japanese version.
In this volume, all the mistakes are corrected and there aren't any omissions.
Now you can enjoy the story as Kosuke Fujishima, the author, intended for us t ...more
This particular Manga TPB of Oh My Goddess was the first one to publish by Dark Horse on America translated to the English language, however Dark Horse edited it and they didn't print several pages from the original Japanese version.
Fans found out and they reclaimed to Dark Horse.
The publishing house responded and they printed later 2 new TPBs Wrong Number and Leader of the Pack, in that way, the readers were able to get the whole initial stories ...more

Oh My Goddess! is the first in a series of books that were first published in the 1980s. They follow a college student who accidently calls the wrong number and reaches the “Goddess Hotline.” A goddess shows up in his dorm room and grants him one wish. He wishes that she would be by his side forever. The wish is binding and cannot be undone. Hilarity ensues as they look for a place to live and meet the main character’s friends.
This was my first time reading a manga book and it was defin ...more

Keiichi is a college student with a height complex and a troubled social life. When a misdial connects him to the Goddess Technical Help Line and Belldandy arrives to grant him a wish he, thinking it's all a prank, offhandedly wishes for her to be with him forever. Thus begins his life with a liv ...more
Belldandy makes the series with her limited powers that she uses for incidental things. I love her psychic ability to sense things about people. It's her little peculiarities that enchant you. Keiichi is clueless in the extreme and she's more a mother figure than anything. To me it seemed a mange designed ...more

About a bad-lucked college student named Keichii
Who isn't very lucky with women one day miserable than usual
a goddess Belldandy (from heaven) grants him one wish that is-
Keichii wishes for a girl like her to be by his side always and just like that Belldandy has to stay by his side until he doesn't need her anymore
Belldandy's sudden appearance draws alot of attention to Keichii
such as a jealous girl, the queen of the campus! (not literally)
A lonely college student accidentally dials a wrong number, connecting him with a celestial hot line. As a result, he meets one of the on-call goddesses, and makes a wish that alters both of their destinies forever.
Think of "I Dream of Jeannie" in a college setting, and you won't be far off. Some of the gags are repetitive, but bear in mind that this is the manga that sta ...more
This holds a great place in my heart for the simple love between Belldandy and Keiichi, unlike other heros who only think with something "else", Keiichi blushes and stutters his way around Belldandy. Shy, but has a true heart of gold that matches well with Belldandy's kindness.
Thoughts of your first love can't help but float back into your mind when you start to rea ...more
Something like 15+ years ago, I started reading this in Kappa magazine, an italian monthly comic magazine styled after publications like Young, with chapters from different mangas as this one and 3x3 eyes, etc.. Then I forgot about it, and a few years ago heard it was coming to an end, and decided to finish it.
After 45 volumes, I think what I liked most was the family atmosphere of bickering, often resulting in humorous moments, and the borderline sci-fi content, as magic turns out to be scienti...more
It felt like a gag manga with high plans that haven't really started to materialise by the end of the first volume.
That said, the characters were quite adorable (and VERY 1980s!). I love, too, how now so much of it feels dated. 5.5" floppy drives, wow!
I'll probably return for Vol.2, but it hasn't had me crying "OMG!" just yet.
Yeah. Definitely a nostalgic read for me--not because of the content, just my own context for it. Important also to keep in mind how old this manga is. Probably not my cup of tea today, but I can definitely see the attraction.
I've read all of the series and liked them all!

Fujishima originally intended to be a draftsman, but took the editorial role after failing to get a drafting apprenticeship.
