The days are never dull at the Morisato household, where Skuld
is building a robot to protect Belldandy from Keiichi's hesitant
advances. Unfortunately, when the robot itself falls in love
with everyone's favourite goddess, it won't let anyone near
her at all! Summer break arrives, and the gang head to the
beach. Urd decides it's time to capitalise on two of her favourite
things - swimsuits and love schemes. Keiichi is given a mission:
if he can't kiss Belldandy on the moonlit beach, he won't
be able to spend a blissful eternity with her...

four episodes on Volume Four include:
15, Ah! A Heart Stolen by a Goddess: Skuld has been
busy with her new invention: a powerful robot named Banpei-kun
RX . Skuld designed Banpei in order to win favour with Belldandy
(she's still jealous that her older sister spends so much
time looking after Keiichi). When Marlier shows up Banpei
sees her off. But the robot's protective duties don't stop
there. Anyone who goes near Belldandy is fair game for an
attack. It soon becomes obvious that Banpei is in love with
16, Ah! Misfortune Arrives and the Tea-stalk Stands Upright?:
Marlier's latest plan is to take control of Megumi's body
and then spend some time with Keiichi and Belldandy. She also
employs the help of Senbei the God of Poverty - a bad luck
spirit who enjoys causing mayhem. Senbei makes Keiichi do
embarrassing things in the hope that Belldandy will get mad
and go back to Heaven.
17, Ah! What do Talent and Hard Work Have to do With it?:
When club member Sora is entered into an all-girls racing
event, it brings back years of being a total failure. It would
seem that while Sora is great behind the scenes in their team,
she has no desire to actually race. Skuld, Urd and Belldandy
all step forward to offer helpful advice. Skuld has gone to
a lot of trouble to build a race course and a robotic car
to help Sora, while Urd has a magic potion that will turn
Sora into a determined competitor. In the end it's Belldandy's
common sense that once again saves the day.
Episode 18, Ah! Confess Your Love Under the Moon?:
Megumi gives Keiichi two tickets for a free stay at a hotel
by the beach - with instructions that he must take Belldandy
and make his feelings known to her. Of course, nothing is
that easy for poor old Keiichi and before he knows what is
going on Skuld and Urd join them on their romantic trip. Urd
reveals to Keiichi that there is a spot on the island where,
if he confesses his love for another during a full moon, that
love can never be broken. The trouble is Keiichi has no idea
how to find it.

the end credits, screen shot gallery and DVD credits (if you
really think that this is a value added extra).
all the episodes in this collection, Ah! Confess Your Love
Under the Moon? was my favourite. There is much more comedy
in this episode than the others. And there was one scene that
I had to rewind and watch twice because I laughed so hard.

be collecting this series.
