Gnaa. Stupid laptop page back/forward key obliterated my message.

I'll try again.

I suppose you think I'll completely obliterate this episode because of
the events that likely could have happened in the first season, right?

No. I found it sweet and I found parallels in a lot of relationships I've
personally witnessed.

Also, consider that the first season was spent with him just trying to
cope with the fact that she was living in his home and how to relate
to her. This season is K1 trying to fumble his way into a relationship
with her obviously.

Slowly but surely K1 is going to have a relationship with her one
way or another. There are signs this is finally happening. Ignore
the manga since I've not read any of it, I've heard the stories that
he kissed her in episode 12 and now it's episode 13 gazillion and
he's still terrified of holding her hand, right? We'll forget that for
the moment.

The reason I'm saying this is something K1 did was pretty darn
bold, especially for him. In fact......

I found it shocking, nay astonishing that something K1 did was
completely bold and forward and if any of you had not noticed
it you should have. Bear with me.

Spoiler:


Okay, I'm done. Thanks for bearing with me.

I enjoyed it, though Keiichi did look a little goofier than the other episodes.

I thought it was quite humours "buy it...buy it for Urd!"

It was a cute episode, I enjoyed it. A lot of shots of Belldandy which I enjoy!

Eh - in the manga, Belldandy is hiding her powers to indulge Keichi (and not using them to be closer to the human Keichi), but she isn't that worried about being found out. She'll tell people point blank that she's a goddess without a problem.

You read my mind. I came here to post about that. He looked so horrible I had to keep looking away from my screen. The animators really need to do something about this. He goes from time to time to looking like a monkey to just really ugly looking. If this doesn't change I might stop watching because it takes me out of the story and is really bothersome.

I'll play devil's advocate here for a moment. Just because we (the audience) and K1 can see Urd on her broomstick doesn't necessarily mean that everyone else can. Urd is a goddess after all, so the plot device of "no one can see me except you" might be in play here. I have no way of knowing if that is what the writers had in mind, but since it would make sense in this instance I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, Belldandy using her powers to save K1 from his fall is another matter entirely. And, if this story is taking place in modern Japan, there are now probably a couple of dozen people who have the entire incident recorded as a digital video on their cell phones.

I rate the episode as a 7. It would have been lower, but I added a point or two because I had the same reaction as aliensporebomb when I saw the ring presentation.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. We included every stuff's nick in the credits --- there're currently 13 members working on it, and so far 16 members have contributed to the project.

The only thing this episode has going for me is Urd in all her onee-sama glory. We see her encouraging and taking care of Keiichi all the way through, and I can't help but get this warm feeling inside and simply admire her for that.

Also, I feel that Sayoko's presence is uneeded here. It just feels like another reason for Keiichi to be placed in some predicament where Belldandy just ends up saving him from falling down again.

So yes, I'll be rating this episode a 7—but most of that is due of Urd's contribution alone. The rest, is nothing new.

I dont think Bell was intentionally lying. Rather it was her own perception.

The sub was released sunday I believe so it was faster than usual.

So far Im not liking season 2 as much as season one. Im hoping it gets more exciting. Ep4 doesnt look too promising either. They need more K1+Bell, Sayoko, or an evil antagonist (mara perhaps). Otherwise, they better introduce the new goddesses. If not, its going to get boring fast IMHO.

Events that would spice things up:
- Kei telling Bell he loves her. I mean a real declaration of love
- Kei+Bell smooch. A real one.
- Someone discovering Bell/Urd/Skuld goddess secret. Like Sayoko
- Mara as a serious antagonist (similar to evil urd)
- New Goddesses and the storyline and complications they bring.
- More meddling from Sayoko going after kei. Perhaps combined with the knowledge that Bell is a goddess.

You can go the romance route with a Bell-Kei-Sayoko love triangle and throw the goddess secret into the fire. It can lead to soap opera-ish stuff like Sayoko threatening to reveal their secret unless Bell backs off, etc etc. The possibilities are endless.

Ah it was okay, it had it's good moments so I rated it a 7. Still it seemed rather slapped together and the animation was weaker than usual and I'm not just talking about Kei did anyone notice how Belldandy didn't look as good as usual. I really do hope this isn't the norm. There's going to be episodes that aren't as good as they should be, that's to be expected, but hopefully it won't be too often.

Thinking: ultimately, what defense could humanity muster against true goddesses
even if their secret were out? Face it, we'd be roadkill against that kind of power.

Anyway, I await the next one because in the aftermath of the ring giving
something has to happen. Either with K1+Bel' or reactions by others...

When people see that rock on her finger they're going to very quickly
put two and two together and it could bring all kinds of mishaps.

What the... We'd be roadkill?! You make it sound like we would go to war with the goddesses. Why would we want to do that?

It would be more like the celebrity/poparatsi (sp?) relationship. Lets see....
-We need food. Please do a food miracle (ala jesus)
-My (insert family member here) is dying. Please save him/her
-Please put an end to crime, poverty, war, famine, disease, etc etc

Good god man. They'd be hounded to death. Not to mention the people that would come to worship. Some nut says they see the Virgin Mary on a tree and 1000 morons visit the tree. Now multiply that by 5,000,000 fold. Did we forget theyre on a temple to add more validation to it.....

I'm thinking more along the lines of the governments of the world
would be invalidated by such power.

People in power, who are used to power will do anything to stay there
so that's why I was saying I can imagine a series of governments trying
to go up against them.

But your ideas are actually correct too - hounded beyond belief.
I kind of like the current "people are oblivious to it, mostly" attitude.

If a Goddess appeared, especially one representing a mix of norse beliefs and christian beliefs, all the other religous leaders (hardcore Catholics, Muslims, etc) would freak out and probably try to kill her.

Yes, governments would react to, but before they could do anything you would see all the religous fanatics having a go at it.

I think they would quickly realize the futility of trying to kill her. After seeing she really IS a goddess and not some scam artist, that is.
