Best Review of Oh My Goddess! Volume 13: Childhood's End V. 13:
Most helpful customer reviews 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Series continues to delight By Anonymous Yet another great entry by Fujishima, and may wind up being my favorite in the series. Something of a change of pace from the more raucous THE FOURTH GODDESS that precedes it, CHILDHOOD'S END takes a warm and thoughtful look at its characters' struggles to grow up. Skuld is struggling with learning to use her powers without relying on her sisters to help her. She's also dealing with the pangs of first love for a boy her own age. The first two stories in the book feature her.#3 features the return of Sayoko after a brief absence, and features her in an unusually sympathetic light, struggling with her own self-doubts and disbelieving everything she sees, thanks to her possession by one of Urd's critters. Some neat role-reversal here, as Belldandy and Urd find themselves trying to convince Sayoko that they ARE goddesses!The final stories introduce a new character named Chihiro to the series. Chihiro is the legendary former head of the Nekomi Tech Motor Club and is held in awe (and fear!) by Tamiya and Otaki. Both Chihiro and Keiichi are struggling to deal with the future, and the meeting of the two provides some heavy inspirational sparks and a deep underlying sense that these two characters will have a great influence on one another in the future. Belldandy is right to worry, in my opinion! Chihiro is the best new character we've seen in this series, and certainly bears watching. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Their relationship survived Peorth... By OracleUsr Skuld has been so persistent in breaking Keiichi and Belldandy up, feeling it is for Belldandy's own good.It is possible that that might soon change, though, as Skuld begins to grow up and understand what the relationship is all about, how Keiichi makes Belldandy feel.You will not be disappointed if you like the series so far. With the addition of movie character Chihiro Fujimi, Keiichi's life shall remain a continuous adventure! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Chihiro is not your ordinary motor vehicle obsessed girl... By A Customer This book is one of the best in the entire series. Having Skuld fall for a human boy is poetic justice after the hell that she continuely puts Keiichi through for daring to love Belldandy. And letting Sayoko be possessed was great. The goddesses kept trying to convince her that they were divine, and she kept making up excuses to explain away their 'magic tricks.' And then we come to Chihiro, who hides a past that involves the motor club of Nekomi Tech and two certain members.Get this book! Read it! Love it! See all 6 customer reviews...
From School Library Journal Adult/High School-In this addition to the series of Japanese comics, college student Keiichi lives with three beautiful goddesses-his true love, Belldandy; her older sister, Urd; and her younger sister, Skuld. In a sitcom, wacky hijinks would ensue. To some extent, that's true here. For example, in "The Queen and the Goddess," Urd orders an angel's egg but receives an anki egg instead, and the wicked beastie attaches itself to Sayoko, the campus beauty. It feeds on her trust, causing her to doubt the motives of others. If it continues to grow, it will eventually crush her. The cure is for her to believe in something, but displays of Belldandy's and Urd's powers only end up causing Sayoko to doubt her own existence. Her salvation comes from Belldandy's heartfelt plea for her to believe in herself. The strength of "Oh My Goddess!" lies in this juxtaposition. The otherworldly elements are never allowed to overwhelm the plot or the characters. Indeed, as much time is spent on Keiichi, and the Motor Club of which he is president, as on the goddesses. Even stories that focus on them, like the triptych of tales about Skuld, have little to do with her supernatural abilities. Instead, she deals with a first crush, learning and growing up like any other girl. Crisp black-and-white art, appealing character designs, and romantic stories livened with humor add to the book's charm.Susan Salpini, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. From the Publisher Kosuke Fujishima was born in the wilds of Chiba, Japan in 1964 and has spent the last 37 years becoming one of the world's favorite creators of `manga` (Japanese comics). Fujishima began his career as an editor for the popular comics news magazine PUFF in Japan, and apprenticed with another top manga creator - Tatsuya Egawa - on the ground-breaking manga BE FREE! Using his newly-acquired manga storytelling abilities, Fujishima began writing his news stories for PUFF in comic- strip fashion, which became incredibly popular with its readers. This lead to the creation of his first serialized manga, the romantic police comedy You`re Under Arrest! , which began in 1986. In 1988, Fujishima drew a four-panel gag cartoon showing his Your're Under Arrest! characters praying to a goddess, and the inspiration for his hilarious supernatural comedy series Oh My Goddess! was born. Dark Horse Comics has published one collection of Fujishima's You're Under Arrest! stories, and eight best-selling volumes of Oh My Goddess!
