Day 143: Oh My Goddess! The Queen and the Goddess

This is a one shot so don't let the lack of additional issues scare you off. Oh My Goddess! was one of the early manga to be brought over to the states and translated. Ordinary loser meets gorgeous goddess and they fall in love, blah blah blah... I knew quite a few men who were huge fanboys of this series.

It's always interesting to pay attention to the inspiration behind various manga series. This one is loosely based off Norse mythology - as evidenced by the characters' names: Belldandy (Verdandi), Urd, Skuld. Other manga I have enjoyed have been more absurd including one about competitive bread baking.
