Belldandy and Keiichi are caught up in the battle over the Earth's fate when The Lord of Terror suddenly takes over Urd. The Lord of Terror summons the Demon gate, and woe to us all if its opened.
The world will be overrun by demons. The Valkyrie, Lind, is sent from heaven to execute The Lord of Terror by any means necessary and whatever host body it happens to be using. Belldandy in turn is given the holy flute to summon the mighty Midgard Serpent to fight, but The Lord of Terror can jump from one body into another, therefore escaping peril. Will she be able to take up arms against her sister Urd, or Skuld, or even Keiichi...?

Ah! My Goddess is based on the original story by Kosuke Fujishima, which was serialised in Kodansha's monthly magazine Afternoon. The four episodes on Volume Six include:

Ah! The Saviour of the World Arrives with the Sound of a Flute: It's all gone to hell in a hand basket. Heaven's computer system is in total chaos thanks to the carefully planned attacks from the Lord of Terror. Urd decides to release the Ultimate Destruction Program in a bid to destroy the world and allow the demons to spring forth and rule over what's left of our planet. Belldandy and Skuld stand up to their sister and God gives Skuld a magic flute in a bid to help them stop the Lord of Terror's evil plan.

Ah! Always By Your Side: Belldandy and Skuld confront the Lord of Terror. But when Keiichi tries to help the Lord of Terror possesses him. Now Belldandy is forced to attack Keiichi is she wants to save humanity.

Ah! Urd's Little Romance: The Lord of Terror has finally been thwarted (no surprises there). Running low on energy Urd takes on the physical appearance of a younger version of herself. She accidentally meets a boy in a playground and the two strike up a friendship. While Belldandy and Keiichi try to cure Urd's condition, she starts to realise that the young boy may have developed a crush on her. The ending to this episode is extremely sweet and is certainly the closest that the show has come to tugging at the heartstrings.

Ah! Is My Heart Pounding Because I'm a Grownup?: Urd is back to her normal physical appearance, but before everyone has a change to get used to everything being back to normal Skuld's physical appearance suddenly changes when she becomes a full grown woman. She has one full day to experience life as an adult.

Extras include Production Art Gallery; Japanese Cover Gallery; and Screen Shot Gallery.

Volume 6 has a particularly good mix of episodes. There's action, adventure, comedy and a sweet tale. What more could you wish for?
