Ah! My Goddess Ch. 269 Manga Review

Ah! My Goddess Manga/Oh My Goddess! Manga
ああっ女神さまっ Chapter 269

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

The little girl mazoku is embarrassed and upset when Belldandy, Ah! My Goddess Ch. 269Keiichi, Urd, and Skuld catch her in the middle of a karaoke session. Belldandy’s bow and apology is seen as overly polite and Belldandy’s remarks on the girl’s actions as looking fun are seen as an attack and thus the girl becomes angry enough to kill. She restrains herself as she remembers her mission and seeing Belldandy is sincere is her compliment, the girl lets go of her anger and announces that it will be a karaoke contest in order to obtain a key out of the room. If they get a high score, they get a key, one key per the four doors in the room.  The group, sans Belldandy, do not believe her but at Belldandy’s request, they agree since Belldandy believes that they cannot lose a singing competition.

Singers have to score 100 on the karaoke machine and to prove it is possible, the little girl does just that. Urd goes first and scores a 100 and so takes a key to door 1. Skuld goes next and is pleased with her 100 score but despite some lingering doubts about the girl’s truthfulness, she takes the key to door 2 and leaves. Keiichi asks Belldandy to go next but she insists that he go next. Keiichi is worried about leaving her alone if he goes next. Belldandy states that there’s no way she’s allowing Keiichi to remain behind. The little girl puts an end to their “flirting” (as she calls it) and says they don’t have to sing as doors 3 and 4 use the same key. When Keiichi asks why, he’s told that the first two doors go someplace else and that Skuld and Urd are together. The girl denies Keiichi’s accusation of being tricked as she never said which key went were. With that, she tells them that they can leave at any time.

Thoughts/Review:

Not much here because Fujishima-sensei did a great many drawings showing the little girl, Skuld, and Urd singing and thus less text was required meaning less story.

Still, it is interesting that the little girl separated Skuld and Urd from Keiichi and Belldandy. It may be that Skuld and Urd are the ones who have to figure a way out of there room before they can proceed on.  If could also be that if Keiichi and Belldandy leave, bad things happen to Skuld and Urd and thus the two of them are forced to do something or other to try to save Skuld and Urd.  I tend to suspect the latter will be the way the story goes since that’s a plot device that is frequently used.  Of course, Fujishima-sensei could go places I don’t expect.  We’ll see.

It is interesting, though not surprising, that the little girl has the same “shadow” things that can emerge from her body. Even if Belldandy wasn’t being genuine in her praise of the little girl’s singing, it does seem odd that she’d want to kill Belldandy.  Unless she knows whom Belldandy is attached to on the mazoku side (possible since Hild did curse him and the knowledge might have been told to others), then her killing Belldandy risks her killing on of her own.  Of course, Fujishima-sensei has never been one to hold tight to continuity and so the whole Doublet System may be forgotten or swept aside for the sake of the current story.  In the end, I suppose it doesn’t matter since nothing happened.

Other than that, not a lot to say here. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

    *SPOILERS*

    Its funny that you mention the Doublet System sure you’re really behind?

  2. AstroNerdBoy says:

    *lol* No way! I’m only getting these from Miyaku and I don’t even how far ahead we are. So, I’m taking it that 270 is out and that the Doublet System is mentioned? If so, that’s awesome. *lol*

  3. Ether101 says:

    271 is out and the Dublet System is the main focus of this mini arc.

  4. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Oh. Well, someone else must be releasing it ’cause Miyaku is only at 269. ^_^; Hmmmm…now I’m tempted to go look for these other two chapters.

  5. Ether101 says:

    You should. Spoilers for 272 are out and Keiichi gets to do something that he should have done years ago. I you shoot me an email I’ll give you the site that I go to.

    @Ether101 — I got your link. I’ve been a member of that site for several years now (through its various changes). ^_^ I used to go regularly but time and my attempts to avoid (major) spoilers here have mostly kept me away. From time to time, I still pop in though. ^_^

  7. AstroNerdBoy says:

    Ah! Now I see what you are talking about. ^_^; I didn’t realize that site allowed for other releases other that GMT.
