Belldandy's big sister Urd continues her campaign of mischief when she brews up a potion that affects everyone but the intended target - Keiichi. But random passion in the streets may be least of the gang's worries when a seemingly harmless CD unleashes the reckless demon Mara... yet another competitor for Bell's affections that Keichii has to deal with...

All it took was one wrong number - now struggling student Keiichi Morisato has one more problem in his life: a goddess who has promised to stay with him... forever! The arrival of Belldandy's mischievous big sister Urd on the scene spells disaster as she tries to alleviate her boredom by bringing her little sister and Keiichi together through sorcery - with unpredictable results! Not only that, but the magical mayhem continues when a mysterious demon appears on the scene to cause even more trouble.

Volume Four in the Oh My Goddess series of original mangas sees the arrival of a demon on the scene. Mara has quite a bit of history with Belldandy and Urd, and is not quite what he/she seems. For anyone that has been following the anime DVD releases of Ah! My Goddess, the introduction of Mara may leave you scratching your head. In this manga, Mara is introduced as a female demon - when in the anime he is obviously male. However, fear not as this misunderstanding is soon cleared up.

I particularly enjoyed the opening story, Chapter 24 - The Flying Motor Club, which sees Keiichi and his motor club restoring a Japanese Shinden aircraft, and getting it to fly. Chapter 24, Let's Take the Love Seeds, is amusing - with Urd making a special tea that acts as an aphrodisiac. She's planning on using it to bring Belldandy and Keiichi together, but ends up drinking some of it herself. The result is that she starts to fancy the strangest of people.

At the end of the day, this is another interesting collection of tales that will keep fans of this series entertained.
