I don't usually find myself getting moved in an emotional way by a movie or an episode of a tv series - actually, very few things do that to me. And before you ask, I haven't got Asperger's Syndrome. Anyway, hrm, as you will soon realize, it was quite a different experience for me watching Oh! My Goddess - it was moving, in a big way, and it also had an amazing soundtrack.
The story of OMG revolves around a guy whose name is Keiichi, and as the story begins, he's stuck in his dorm room watching the phones while his extremely big and brutal roommates are out doing whatever. He's trying to order a pizza when suddenly, he reaches the Goddess Help Line by mistake. And the next thing he knows, a goddess walks out of his wall mirror and tells him he can have whatever he wants.
Since the goddess is a babe named Belldandy, and he's a horny teenager, he tells her he wants her to be his girlfriend for eternity, and believe it or not, his wish is granted. Now, at this point, some anime fans would have wondered when the nudity was gonna start, and others would label this anime as a typical shonen (see the shonen node - a shonen or shounen anime is an anime targeted at males), and decide it wasn't worth their time. I myself made this mistake, and stopped watching after episode three.
A year later, I find the episodes on a CD-R, tucked away in my 256-disc CD wallet, and figure I might spend some time watching them all again - there are only five episodes to the entire series. I really wish I'd watched them earlier. However, the truly good parts of this anime don't show up until episode four, which is really the first part of the last episode, making the second part, obviously, episode 5. Episodes one and two do little but introduce the characters (although they're quite funny), and episode three is outright dull, due to a very predictable story - Keiichi takes part in a motorcycle race, one which may cost him Belldandy, should he loose. Obviously, he wins. Predictable equals boring.
Predictable, however, is not a word I'd choose for the ending. It was awesome, it brought tears to my eyes, and unlike some romantic movies which tend to stretch things out (especially the ending), not one second of it was ever boring. Beautiful. The basic story is (I'll try not to spoil you here) that Belldandy has to go back to Heaven, but due to some unfinished business from his childhood (involving Belldandy), Keiichi can't let her (it's rather complicated). I can't wait to find the Oh! My Goddess movie somewhere .. hopefully it's a sequel to the series, and if it can exceed it in terms of greatness, I simply have to see it.
That concludes this rant/daylog/review mutation - my final word is that, if you're somewhat into anime, I think you should find yourself a few episodes of Oh! My Goddess to watch - it's available both as subs and dubs. Just remember, it gets much better near the end.
An additional note: Apart from the five-episode anime and the movie, there's also a series called Oh! My Mini Goddess - it's seems intended for children, and the episodes are only five minutes each - OMG fans should watch it, though.
