Ah! My Goddess Ch. 294 Manga Review

Ah! My Goddess Manga/Oh My Goddess! Manga
ああっ女神さまっ Chapter 294

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Decision Gate asks if Belldandy and Keiichi still wish to be joined, knowing the ending that awaits. Keiichi wonders how Gate knows, so she cites God. Keiichi refutes this, saying that if everything is determined, there’s no need for the Gate of Judgement. It is only possible to pass through the gate because a bad end is not guaranteed. Gate surrenders to his logic, acknowledging his point, but wonders if Keiichi has considered that they would have a repeat. As such, Gate asks if Keiichi would want Belldandy erased.

Keiichi acknowledges the sadness of the story of the goddess and the bard, stating he’s never felt such sorrow. However, he also experienced much happiness. Belldandy agrees, citing moments in the goddess’s and bard’s time together. Keiichi and Belldandy agree that this showed them the positive things that might await them as they hold hands. Gate inquires about the eventual forced separation (when Keiichi dies).  Keiichi remembers Belldany’s words on the pain of parting proving the depth of love, which Belldandy recites. Keiichi says he didn’t realize it at the time but Belldandy is prepared for this. Thus, he too will be prepared and he squeezes her hand.

Keiichi notices the difference in how Gate speaks and asks for her true identity. Decision Gate tries to play off this change in speaking, so Keiichi asks if Gate can be hacked. Belldandy says it is almost impossible to hack the security connections of the gate. Keiichi suspects that a high ranking person must have hacked Gate or there’s a problem with the Gate as the Gate is able to lie.

Decision Gate laughs, calling Keiichi scary. She then addresses Belldandy, stating that it has been a while. Belldandy immediately recognizes Gate has been hacked by her father and addresses Gate as such. Keiichi is stunned by this revelation and panics. He then asks Belldandy’s father, the Daitenkaicho Tyr, for Belldandy, then panics over that. Tyr says that this is what Keiichi wants, but that proper greetings have not been exchanged yet. Further, Tyr apologizes for addressing them within Decision Gate.

After congratulating them for passing the test, the fact that Keiichi caught on that the Decision Gate was in fact Belldandy’s father,Tyr says that he is the final obstacle for Keiichi.

Thoughts/Review:

*lol* So, I was right. The Decision Gate was hacked by “Kami-sama” (Tyr), who has the official title of Daitenkaicho. Fitting since Hild’s title is Daimakaicho.

It is interesting that Fujishima-sensei chose Tyr as the Daitenkaicho. Tyr’s name had never come up in any discussions of the ruler of Belldandy’s realm, nor the name of her father. Odin’s name has come up a few times, but I don’t think anyone took that serious since Odin’s children are better known. Tyr isn’t so well known, and the word literally means “god” so it is a good choice.

So, now we’ve met the parents of Urd, Belldandy, and Skuld. Before this manga ends, I hope we learn how Tyr and Hild fell for each other and why their relationship was allowed to proceed to produce a half-goddess/half-mazoku. It would also be interesting to see how Tyr and Ansuz got together. However, if I’m right about the manga ending on chapter 300, there’d be no time except as some sort of special extra.

Although Keiichi has not proposed to Belldandy, he did asks for Belldandy’s hand, which amused me (as did his panic at realizing what he did). Belldandy had a physical reaction to this as well. It isn’t a problem that Keiichi hasn’t proposed since Belldandy would say yes just the same. I do hope to see Keiichi propose.

So, now Keiichi has to face Belldandy’s father for one final challenge before he’ll give Belldandy to Keiichi. *lol* Should be fun. ^_^

    Should only be a few days now before the next chapter.

  2. Lan says:

    How do you pronounce Tyr?? No wait, scratch that, how do the Japanese pronounce his name?

  3. ChronoReverse says:

    Your theory about ending at 300 seems more and more likely with each chapter. Makes me kinda sad since AMG has been around for so long.
