Ah! My Goddess Ch. 280 Manga Review

Ah! My Goddess Manga/Oh My Goddess! Manga
ああっ女神さまっ Chapter 280

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Ah! My Goddess Ch. 280With Hild revived and Hagall under control, she peeks in on Urd, who’s falling to the pleasures of her demon (mazoku) powers.  Urd asks Skuld if she has a barrier device, which Skuld has, producing the Aegis Shell, which looks like a large egg. Urd unleashes her power, destroying the contraption above them as Skuld protects herself with the device.

In the karaoke room, Mokkurkalfi and Ehwaz sing when the an explosion destroys the karaoke machine, throwing the sisters across the room. Urd arrives, drunk on her powers, causing Mokkurkalfi to become very worried. Ehwaz is going to attack when Mokkurkalfi throws her aside, pointing out that there are magic “bolts” all over above them. Mokkurkalfi raises a barrier, but Urd causes the electrical energy from one of the bolts to run under the barrier, shocking the sisters.

Urd creates one massive bolt, which threatens to take out both Mokkurkalfi and Ehwaz, but Skuld arrives, telling Urd she’s activating her anti-proton bomb.

Thoughts/Review:

At only sixteen pages, counting the chapter cover page, this is certainly a short chapter, especially for a monthly series.  Most weekly series are this many pages, and Ah! My Goddess is usually in the early 20’s.

Regardless, not a lot happened other than Urd breaking them out of their prison, and getting drunk on her power.  While I don’t doubt that Skuld will set off her bomb, I can’t fathom how this will result in Urd going to normal.  Heck, Hild will probably show up, stop the bomb, then as a thanks to Urd, will return her to normal, but only after Belldandy says something.  *lol*

Actually, I’ve no idea how things will go because Fujishima-sensei doesn’t give a lot of clues on how things might be done.

Finally, I just realized that Glühendes Herz is due for a return. Maybe he helps with things.

Hopefully, the next chapter will be longer and will give a clearer picture of how Urd might be returned to normal.

    Your prediction is completely off.

      *lol* Doesn’t surprise me. I’ve got a poor track record on predicting AMG due to the random nature of the series (though to be fair, there are bits of foreshadowing here and there).

    Ive just read your fan letter to Carl Horn in volume 22. Nice try but unlucky regarding getting Dark Horse to switch to using honorifics!
    I have to agree that its really really needed. Ironically, the 1st time i had heard ‘senpai’ was on the OMG! OVA series, recorded wayyyy back when! You would have thought it to be a no brainer for the manga adaptation to have included them too >.<

    • AstroNerdBoy says:

      The original OVA series was done by AnimEigo, who would use “senpai” and even the brother/sister honorifics at times. Before they were pushed out of the manga market, they’d pretty much dropped it all though. 🙁

      Dark Horse has moved somewhat from their original releases, which had lots of rewrites and zero honorifics. Now, they include a few here and there. Fortunately, their CLAMP releases have been otaku friendly so far.
