Ah! My Goddess! (TV, 2005)

Overview

Folks, lemme take a little break from my usual impatient, rude, and generally pissed off nature, in favor of a side that I've been told that I don't show often enough - the fact that I am, at a certain level, something of a hopeless romantic. A little history for those of you that don't know the series - Ah! My Goddess! is one of the longest running manga series around, centering around a student of Nekomi Tech named Keichi. Our young friend is, unfortunately, something of a hapless fellow. Kind, caring, self-sacrificing and willing to put up with practically anything and just smile through it, he doesn't really have a life of his own. Living in a rock-bottom rent dorm room with the Nekomi Motor Club - a club of misfits if there ever were, K1 - shorthand for Keichi - is doing chores and answering phones for the upperclassmen one night when he gets hungry, and decides to order out.
