The story of a typically reserved engineering student who
unwittingly acquires his very own sex goddess after mis-dialing
a number for takeout, this anime series comes from the long-running
manga of the same name. In the latest volume Keiichi
must deal not only with Belldandy's drama, but also with that
of her sisters. Skuld, Belldandy's younger sister, might possibly
be the worst of the bunch, as she's constantly hogging Belldandy
for herself. Making matters even more complicated are The
Campus Queen and her devilish pal Mara...
My Goddess is

The Demon Arrives and Wreaks Havoc: Tamiya and Otaki are
compelled to buy a strange CD while browsing in a weird shop.
There seems to be some odd writing on the CD, but the two
students can't get it to play on their CD player. Using a
flash of, for want of a better word, inspiration the two decide
to attempt to play it on their old record player. The resulting
music is a little odd, but not as odd as the fact that they
have managed to release a demon spirit that was trapped inside
the CD. The demon introduces herself as Mara, a demon, first
class, and she's ready to mess up the goddesses' plans, starting
Choosing between the Goddess and the Queen: Mara offers
Sayoko a plan to get Belldandy out of the way, so that she
can be campus queen once again. Sayoko agrees and manages

becomes fixated on Sayoko, forgetting about Belldandy.
Who Does Big Sister Belong to?: The goddess server in
heaven has gone crazy. Bugs have really worked their way into
the system causing Keiichi's world to start to come undone
- he is turned into a paper thin version of himself. Apparently
it's all because of Belldandy's unstable heart. Skuld, Belldandy's
younger sister, arrives from Heaven, to try and talk Keiichi
into breaking his contract with Belldandy, so that Belldandy
can go back to Heaven and help fix the computer problems.

Skuld gets carried away and ends up upgrading the bike by
mistake. When Keiichi's sister Megumi, who is an engineering
student, pays a visit, she notices Skuld's upgrades and starts
to point out some faults with them. This angers Skuld, who
