"Open your Mind" is probably my favourite or second favourite anime opening out of all the ones I've seen; been ages since I've seen it too. Brings back such good memories too.

Bagpipes for the win!

Yes, I understand. One of the best romantic-comedy series ever.

Yeah I think both OPs have this Irish/Scottish sound to them. Then again the series is loosely based on Norse mythology. ;)

So you finally give into your AMG! Thankee gamera! :)

That's very true.

And yes the 3 Goddess's are the 3 Norns. AKA the "Fates"
Belldandy = The Present
Urd = The Past
Skuld = The Future

Yes, I am quite into the series.
Have read the ENTIRE manga up to the latest chapter (279) no spoilers.
And I have written several chapters of fan-fiction as well :D

You're quite welcome!

Yeah I have all but the last volume of the manga by Dark Horse now. They finally caught up with the non-flipped manga style releases compared to their older blown up and flipped ones. :)

I think GMT who does the translations/scans of AMG is now at 280... and the manga in Japan is at 282... so GMT caught up. :D Now we just sit and wait for news on AMG... we need news... no news is bad >.<;

The same here...even though there are a few groups here on dA,
they aren't as active as I'd hope.

But my main Group is quite active.
If you'd like to submit some cosplay photos to share with everyone,
that'd be very cool indeed :)

Nice job on making this flash. My compliments. The opening for the first season was good and always a heart tugger but then when I heard the new opening for the second season I had never been so moved before by such a wonderful song it brought tears of joy to my eyes.

I would love for Kosuke Fujishima to follow through in making the 3rd season Ah! My Goddess Fighting Wings for all us fans out there cause I wonder just how much more of a beautiful song they'd choose to use for that season.

Thanks so much for your open and honest feedback.
I do this because I love the series, and I do it for the
many fans out there besides myself :D

I hear ya, but as far as I know, he is only continuing with the recent OVAs (2 last year) and no news about a 3rd season. I wish he would as well, as the manga is up to chapter 279 (no spoilers) and it's getting interesting once again.

If you have a chance please check out my AMG fan-fics :D

Oh you're welcome. ^.^ I'm actually new to deviant art and a new member to Anasatcia's (I believe thats her username) AMG Chitai club. Nice to meet you gamera68.

I'm not much into reading manga as I am watching anime. But if I'm into Ah! My Goddess as much as I am I should probably try reading the manga part of the series as well then.

With that many chapters theres obviously enough for there to be 4 seasons of the animated series and another movie. Ah! My Goddess is definitely one anime series I'd like to see go over atleast 50+ episodes or even more so 100+ would be my wish.

Welcome to dA then :D
Nice to meet you as well, RedZVer!

Yes, as I do both (read the manga and watch the anime it's based upon) as much as I can. If I like a series, I surely don't want it to end with me 'wanting more' or a satisfying end.

If you love Ah My Goddess, I recommend that you try to get into the manga series as well. It's been on-going since 1989 believe-it-or-not!
Even though there are some story-arcs that are so-so, it is still an enjoyable read full of some very interesting characters that are not in the anime series nor movie.

Yes. "Ah! My Goddess: The Movie" came out in 2000. Followed by the first season in 2005. There was also a 5 episode OVA series that came out in the mid-90's that pretty much covers how Keii and Bell met.
The animation was pretty good for the time it came out, but not nearly as 'clean' as the 2 anime series, and the OVA 'Fighting Wings' that came out in 2009 for the 20th Anniversary. Plus the 2 new OVAs that came out last year as well.

Yes, you are correct: there are definitely a lot more story arcs to be animated.

Thank you. ^.^

I'll definitely keep in mind to check out the manga part of the series Ah! My Goddess then. Where do you buy your manga?

Is there any place I can check out these new OVA's? This is also why I hope Kosuke Fujishima and his production team follow through in making the 3rd season.

You're welcome.

Buy manga? Oh, no no no.
I read it online. But most local
bookstores and comic book shops sell it.

New OVAs:
Ah! My Goddess OVA 1 "Always Together" [link]

Ah! My Goddess OVA 2 "Hunters & Hunters" [link] (click on 'Source 2' at the top, as 1 is broken)

I've seen it multiple times and have read the manga all the way up to the latest chapter (279 - no spoilers)
