The Facts are These:
Keiichi Morisato is going to university, but he has not luck. One day after an especially hard day he decides to call his senior. However, he is connected to the Goddess Hotline, with the mysterious woman Belldandy appears in front of him in his room.
This series good, it is a series that makes you feel warm and fuzzy. Belldandy would definitely be someone you would want in your life, which make the show even more watchable. Some of the problems I found is that I hated Skuld. I mean she was so annoying, I wish they would at least discipline her for some of the shit she pulled. The romance between Belldandy and Keiichi felt genuine, they faced problems, persevered and worked to build a better relationship.

A Brief View of the World:
The world of Ah! My Goddess is the same as our own, however the existence of Gods, Goddesses and Demons exist. These deities seem to take their inspiration from Norse Mythology. This can be seen through the mention of Yggdrasil, Fenrir, Valkyrie and Sleipnir, all important aspects in Norse Mythology.
This series was enjoyable to watch. Every episode was it’s own contained story concerning the characters and there was a charm to each episode. The characters are fun, with each one of them not being tiresome to watch.
The series has a charm to it that makes it enjoyable to watch the episode again and again. The characters and stories can be average at times, but it is still fun to watch the episodes for the interactions.
Binbougami Ga! – For another show where a god becomes part of a humans life. Though this is more comedy focused than romance.
Golden Time – For an interesting romance show, that has a good cast.
