"This set includes all 6 discs from season 1. It's the same thing as the preimium box set except all the discs come in one case instead of 6, and it's alot less expenisve to buy this way.
As for the show, its very good. I'm surprised more people don't know about this anime because its one of the best ive ever seen."
The First Season of the TV Series in an Affordable Set

"Back in the nineties, all fans of the Ah! My Goddess manga had was a short, very condensed five-episode OVA series. It was lovely, of course, and we would watch and love every second of it. And yet, there was a thirst that the short OVA couldn't quench (and neither could the excellent 2000 Ah! My Goddess film, even if it is still the single best piece of Ah! My Goddess media ever released): we knew this series deserved to be made into a TV series. Back then, the odds of this happening seemed slim. Thankfully, we were wrong.
The TV series is everything we'd hoped for and more. This wasn't a rushed 13-episode project that'd only develop things slightly more than the previous OVA. This was (and is) a major, high-quality project. The series neither follows the manga completely faithfully nor veers off in some unknown direction: it takes the basic flow and material provided by the manga and fashions itself as its own creature.
As far as the series goes:
Visual: A fairly high-quality level of animation is maintained. The visual aspects of the film are maintained, so this and the film don't look that terribly different.
Audio: Thankfully, unlike the OVA with its dinky BG music and simplistic J-POP, we get quite a few good tunes with this series. The first season opening is an excellent, Celtic-ish piece of soft rock. The ending is a cute, and, dare I say, slightly country-ish tune. The background music is not spectacular, but it accomplishes its job and, again, it is a far sight better than what was provided in the OVA.
Extras: Sparse extras. Very little. Extras-fanatics will be disappointed; for people like me who merely want the show, though, this won't be a problem.
All in All, a great show at a very affordable price. Highly recommended!
If you've never seen any Ah! My Goddess, though, try to get your hands on the OVA first. If you like the OVA, you'll love the series.
ONE POINT OF CAUTION
The five stars above are for the show itself. I advise against keeping your DVDs in the case. The way it is designed makes it very tough to get the DVDs out. I've never had troubles with any of my other DVDs, but I actually snapped one of the discs in this collection trying to get it out, and had to order a new individual copy of that disc! Get the set for the price, and then find some jewel cases or case-books to keep the discs in."
A truely wonderful anime!

"I was a fan of "Oh My Goddess!" manga when it was under Dark Horse, I read it for year and years and years, I loved it!
When I saw that they where releasing an anime, ooh I was excited! But, a little worried, as I wasn't a huge fan of the "Oh My Goddess" movie.
When I netflixed this, wow! I loved it! Oooh it was great! It had all the little story bits they left out in the American manga that where in the Japanese manga, PLUS lots of new stuff! the voice acting is great, just what I would expect the characters to sound like! Even the english dub is good, and honestly I hate watching anime when its not in its original language, so that coming from me says alot.
I had to buy it right away! Now I'm eagerly awaiting season 2 to come out, come on whats taking them so long! haha.
Its fun, light, great fun for all ages. Well, maybe not really young kids, but teens and up hehe ~.^ due to suggestive content, nothing graphic or anything though!
This show is great and I love it, very true to the original manga, I'm very pleased with this. Any OMG fan will love it! And if you like light, funny, story with morals, full of lovable characters, and beautiful animation, give it a shot! I bet you'll love it too!
Oh and there are no boys getting nose bleeds and falling down or angry women punching them through windows into the next county. hehe. ^^ come on, all you anime fans, you know what I'm talking about hehe. ^^"
An Incredible Romantic Magical Anime Greatly Worth The Price

"I saw a few episodes of this on t.v. a few months ago and it looked very entertaining similar to the series Ai Yori Aoshi with a more magical twist and I am definitely glad to have gotten this set. The story has the main character Keiichi Morisato a young male college student who seems to have the worst luck with money and women and because of his money problems lives in the auto club dorm rooms. Than after a accidental phone call mistake he's connected to the goddesses hot line where he meets Belldandy a young goddess who tells him he gets one wish, and his wish turns out having Belldandy staying on earth at his side. In no way is there anything to adult in this series it's actually pretty light-hearted with most of the romantic scenes so don't worry about younger kids watching this show. Along the series Belldandy's two other sisters Urd and Skuld come to earth and later stay there. The series has a mix of romance and humor but again don't worry to much about violence in the series the harshest you'll probably see is when two of the series characters are punished for their conniving ways and trying to get between Belldandy and Keiichi. The series is widescreen format with clear and sharp picture quality so no need to worry about the picture. The audio is also great the dubbed and subbed voice actors did a great job for their characters on the show. Now I'm just waiting to get the second season set of this great show to complete my collection, so to anime fans if you like Ai Yori Aoshi or Ranma 1/2 animes this series is a great selection for your library..."
