Ah! My Goddess Ch. 247 Manga Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Ah! My Goddess Ch. 247 Manga ReviewMara arrives where chibi-Hild and the others are. Chibi-Hild asks how Mara survived the encounter with “Momo-chan,” the demon-bull creature that had been sent to retrieve chibi-Hild. Mara recounts her battle with the beast after chibi-Hild escaped and that her current messy condition is a byproduct of getting caught up in her own attack on the demon-beast.

Chibi-Hild needs Mara’s help so she acknowledges Mara’s victory. When chibi-Hild reveals that she needs Mara’s and Welsper’s approval to gain access through the gate to Niflheim, Welsper refuses until Belldandy asks. Belldandy explains that her desire not only comes from the Daimakaicho’s request, but her love for Earth and various people she’s met there. With three approvers set, chibi-Hild, Mara, and Welsper perform the ritual to open the gate.

Thoughts/Review:

There’s not a lot here beyond some Mara-love. Granted, Mara takes a beating in defeating Momo-chan, but she does get to kick some bottom and show a bit of nobility I guess. While its nice seeing Mara in action, she’s still being used as comedic cannon fodder and so that negates her kicking bottom. I remember back when Mara was first introduced and while elements of that character survive here, I think much has been lost over the years. We’ll see how she’s treated as the current story progresses.

Hopefully, Lind and Peorth make it before the gate closes so that there is maximum firepower when entering Niflheim. Plus, it will be an opportunity to see Mara work along side the others in a fight, which I’d find interesting to see, even though I figure Mara will still be cannon fodder.

So after some really interesting chapters of late, this one is just an average chapter with the plus of seeing Mara kick a little bottom before being put back in her place as a laughing stock demon.

    I heard that the goddesses are going to be cursed and turned into men when they enter Niflheim. Any truth to that?

  2. AstroNerdBoy says:

    I think that stemmed from the fact that there is an AMG parody in the current “Afternoon” magazine. In that parody, Belldandy and the others do become men from what I understand but I don’t know all the details.

    Really, I wouldn’t mind seeing that. Do you know of any place that could get their hands on some scans?

    Anyways, if Fujishima is wrapping up the series what do you hope he’ll do before he’s done? I personally hopping for the return of the Lord of Terror, an explanation as to what Keiichi really is and a show of that untapped potential that Belldandy says is greater then anyone she’s ever meat.

    I thought I had saved the images but I’m not finding them at them moment. *_* They aren’t on my flash drive either. I may have stashed them someplace stupid so I’ll look.

    As to what I hope Fujishima-sensei will do, hmmmm, I hadn’t thought much to that beyond finally having Belldandy and Keiichi shown in a true romantic moment complete with kiss.

  5. Ether101 says:

    Well there’s that too, I hope that there’s some out right confirmation that God is the sisters’ father and show that he isn’t the first. And have him settle what ever grudge that he has with K1, hopefully with a fight. That would deffently off set the AMG anime fanboys.

    BTW, chapters 249 and 250 are out.

  6. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Yeah, I managed to grab them last night. Shame about 248 though.
