The Norse Mythology part I get...but the anime has nothing in common with SEL, AFAIK.

Isnt it about a kid who basically hacks/repairs computers? Only anime about a girl who does stuff with computer is SEL to my knowledge. Kiddy becuase its not serious. I could be wrong though, i havent seen the series, just relaying what i have heard.

I've seen the movie and OVA series and it is nothing like that. It's a fun romance/comedy with a twist

There's an OVA and Movie done before the TV series. Both were quite good. I'm actually downloading the TV series right now. Apparently there with be 2 more "special" episodes as well as a second season.

It's following the more somber storylines in the manga. I didn't think they were even gonna hit the Demon Warrior Urd storyline. But I guess that's an okay place to stop the first season.

Skuld needs to be kicked in the head. She's so annoying and useless! Her only purpose is to be the clingy little sister who ruins everything.

Characters who are solely plot devices bore me.

In a nutshell, the story is about a college student named Keiichi who loves working on/repairing/racing motorsport vehicles (cars, bikes, trucks, etc). But he has a weak will but a kind heart, so he ends up getting walked on top of by everyone he knows. (at least in the anime) Because heaven recognizes that Keiichi has had far more then his fair share of hardships throughout his life, representative Goddess First Class Belldandy comes down to earth to grant him one wish. He accidently ends up wishing that Belldandy would stay with him forever. Since she is such a high class goddess, there is no way that anyone short of god themselves can break the spell, so she is essentially stuck there.

The rest of the story circulates around Keiichi and Belldandy's relationship and how Belldandy's sisters Urd and Skuld try to help/hurt them along the way.

I was hoping I would get to see Peorth in the first season. No such luck though.

The end was still pretty good though.

Bah. People lack originality!

Actually, I was gonna change my avatar today, but I can't get it small enough and keep it looking good at the same time.



I was gonna do this one, but I can't get it below 75k without it looking like garbage. But then, I didn't make this one either, so it's harder to edit.
