SynopsisKeiichi Morisato is looking forward to university life. But in reality, he has no luck in anything, and he has trouble with clubs, love, etc. The truth is that he has an unlucky star above his head. One day, Keiichi is stuck watching the dorm while his sempai are away, and has a mountain of chores to do to boot. But Keiichi is a good-natured person, and is set about doing his duties. As he is about to finish his final chore, he makes a phone call to his sempai. But the words that came through the receiver are, "Goddess Help Line." Shortly afterwards, a beautiful goddess named Belldandy appears in front of him from the mirror of his room.

Characters & Voice Actors
The story could certainly be hard to describe without spoilers, however if you have already watched the anime, heard about it, or simply read the synopsis, then please read on.
The story advances at a steady pace, however sometimes it can be slow while sometimes it can be fast. I personally thought the story was interesting, and it intrigued me to watch more and more of it. There are no filler episodes, as each episode contributes to something within the story. Thankfully no episodes have extremely long talks, nor do they have "no action". There will always be a little bit of action, and comedy in certain area's.
The art I found quite thrilling, it was something different to see, the backgrounds blended nicely with what was going on, as well as sometimes the mood of the character. It isn't ugly or poor, it's very good quality art.
In my opinion the sound was okay, there wasn't any unnecessary sounds within any of the episodes, and the sound also corresponded with what was going on. Obviously the character voices and such, but also the sound of the background noises - the wind, the birds, insects, etc.
As soon as I started watching this anime, I fell victim to the characters.
They are all so different, and you will be unable to choose which is your favourite character.
Good, or evil, both shall win you over. Throughout the anime, you learn more about the characters and their personalities.
Enjoyment: Personally this anime made me laugh quite a lot, and at certain parts it even brought a tear to my eye. It is so touching, and so understanding, but at the same time it keeps you interested - wanting to know more, wanting to see what happens next.
This type of anime is one of a lot which I enjoy watching. However, from the pictures you may see of the anime - it does seem girly, and such - however, even if it does look girly, it's not. If you just take the time to watch a couple of episodes you will realise that this anime could be a great enjoyment for you.
Throughout this anime, you can easily get moved from anger, to sorrow, to guilt, and probably other emotions too. Romance is also within this anime.
Ah! My Goddess is an anime I recommended for friends to watch, and now I recommend it for you viewers to watch as well. Even if it doesn't seem appealing, give it a try and watch a couple of episodes. read more
Ah! My Goddess is a light-hearted, sweet, fantasy without serious romance or ecchiness. It's a great anime to watch if you are not looking for anything special but rather sit and relax to an easy viewing. As mentioned by other reviewers, I think girls will like this series more than guys because of the strong female lead and role reversals. However, those hard-core romantics who are seeking relationship development and ecchi harem loving guys should look elsewhere.
The story starts out centered around the male lead, Keiichi, who has no luck but is still kind and generous to others. When given the opportunity to have any wish granted, he wished to spend eternity with a goddess. From that point on, his whole world changed and the series slowly started to shift focus to Belldandy, his goddess.
Throughout the series, Keiichi would get into trouble and Belldandy would always bail him out. Her love for him is the heart of the entire anime. There are many cute and touching moments that stem from their relationship but not much development takes place and they never really kiss.
Art and Sound
Overall, I think the characters were very well drawn and cute. Keiichi is really put in a fortunate position with so many beautiful female characters surrounding him. The special effects are not terrible either. As for the sound, I really like the opening sound track. It sounds very scottish. As for character voices, Belldandy's voice annoyed me because she sounded very old and mother-like. This is probably because Kikuko Inoue played a lot of mother/teacher roles in other animes I watched.
Unlike a lot of romance animes, this anime revolves around the female lead, Belldandy, who is the guardian/housewife. Her character seems like a symbol for strong, modern women. She is a strong heroine with incredible powers, has a caring and nurturing personality, is irresistible to men and machines alike, and at the end of the day she is the perfect housewife. With all those amazing qualities, its no surprise that she is a goddess!
With a strong female lead, it is only natural than the male lead, Keiichi, is weak. He is a normal human who lacks special powers and suffers from an inferiority complex. However, his attractiveness comes from his unconditional love for others. He is kind, generous, and protective of everyone; even if they are strangers. And on top of all of that, his only wish was to be with the one he loves. He's the kind of guy that girls can picture their husbands to be like.
Overall, I could not give this anime a rating above average because there were very few memorable moments. For the most part, it is a forgettable series that is too similar to other romance animes, but that may be a good thing if you need a break from a harder hitting anime. I would recommend this anime to those who just have to see every romance/comedies, but for those who are looking for a new experience, this anime will not satisfy you. read more
Both series are lightly comedic romances (with harem elements) in which a fairly ordinary college student is suddenly visited by a beautiful yamato nadeshiko type woman who becomes his romantic partner.
These are really close in the story line the main couple meet in the beginning and then the rest of the story is about how they they live. Both shows have a bunch of other girls that come in and mess up the happy relationship the main couple have. And lastly they are both heart warming and funny.
Ah! My Goddess is mostly about the pure relationship between Belldandy and Keichii. You will find a similar boy meets girl, girl and boy fall in love, girl and boy go through obstacles plot line in Ai yori Aoshi
Guy meet a girl, star to live with her and they fall in love with each other
boy falls for girl, girls have to hide their relationship to friends
A college guy has a woman suddenly appear with plans to spend the rest of her life with the guy, she cooks and cleans at the place they now live at, and a harem starts popping up.
A loser guy that gets lucky when a girl randomly comes into his life xD
Ai and Belldandy, both share the same traits;t their unconditional love and devotion to the main male lead.
Both anime involve female characters who suddenly step into the male protagonists lives and transform it. The primary difference between the shows is simply the fact that one is a Goddess.
