"That is the central theme of this disc and (gasp! shock!) this includes Belldandy. Before I start my review, my recommendation would be to watch the first disc. That way you can have a better understanding of the relationships between the characters. I will break down my review by episodes that are on the disc. Also, I will try not to give away too much of the story (AKA Spoilers) Now onto the review:
Otaki (second in command of autoclub) fixes Satoko Yamano scooter much to the dismay of Aoshima (rich-boy). Sparks fly between the two (Otaki and Satoko) and after some convincing from Keiichi and Belldandy, they go to the amusement park on a date. Unfortunately for the two lovebirds, Aoshima owns this place and (you guessed it) when he sees his potential girlfriend (oxymoron if he is a playa) having a good time, he decides to try and ruin the date
Keiichi for the first time receives a love letter, or so he thinks, from the young exorcist apprentice Shiho Sakakibara from his school. Shiho senses non-human psychic waves coming from Keiichi which she mistakes to evil spirits. Yet she gets too close to Keiichi at times and Belldandy begins to experience the darker side of her emotions. Now up to this point, Belldandy has been suppressing her jealous side/emotion. And if you know the power of being a Goddess (considering Belldandy is very high ranking), lets just say that Shiho is end for a rude awakening and Keiichi realizes that despite Belldandy's Goddess Status, she is still a woman and needs one thing from the man she loves: appreciation.
Enter a new character, Peorth, who happens to work for the Earth Support Office. This is a direct rival of Goddess Relief Office, who Belldandy works for. Somehow, once again, Keiichi dials up to heaven and gets in contact with Earth Support Office and enter Peorth (I think I speak for all the guys when I say this: I want Keiichi's luck). Peorth basically tells Keiichi the same thing that Belldandy told him, the only trouble is, Keiichi already as what he wants in Belldandy. Trouble being, Peorth isn't hearing that and decides to "force" Keiichi to make a wish...it doesn't happen
Peorth is overstaying her welcome as she meddles more in Keiichi's life. After Urd talks to Peorth about the relationship between Keiichi and Belldandy, Peorth does a little investigating of her own and decides to see if she can appeal to Keiichi carnal instincts (look up sex) and like any guy, he has them. Thus, Peorth issues a challenge to the other Goddesses to see if they can make Keiichi "desires" come true. Peorth and Belldandy have history (it's hinted at) and from I can tell, it isn't good.
Overall, I would say that this disc shows Belldandy acting more like a human then a goddess in that she does have a darker side to her. Word of advice: even though a woman may be your best friend, she can also be your worst enemy.
This is a box set

"This AMG Season 2 Vol. 2 is a boxset. That means your Amazon package contains a DVD (as usual) and a hardboard AMG box as a plus item. You may noticed that this DVD costs more about $9 than other AMG DVDs. Yes, that $9 is the price for the box, I guess.
There is also a plus feature of this disc. Two English voice actresses (Belldandy and peorth) recorded a commentary. You can listen it by selecting audio 3. By the way, the English voice actress of peorth was acting Belldandy's in Oh! My Goddess (OVA) series.
Yet, as everybody agrees, the best way to enjoy the show is its Japanese original recording. As for the original voice actresses, Hasegawa's voice actres has change since Season 2 Vol. 1. Anybody noticed that? All other versions (OMG-OVA, AMG-Movie, AMG-Season1) are recorded by the same voice actress for Hasegawa.
This is not about this volume, but Belldandy's voice has once been recorded by other person than Inoue Kikuko. AMG-Adventures of Mini Goddess Vol.1 Gan-Chan File is that one. Inoue Kikuko was in the maternity leave at that time, so she skipped for that volume and came back from Mini Goddess Vol. 2 and ever since.
To be honest, the story telling of this volume is a bit behind, comparing with other volumes of AMG Season 1 and 2. Hope that things are going to be better for volume 3."
