From Dark Horse:
Alone in his dorm on a Saturday night, Nekomi Tech's Keiichi Morisato dials a wrong number that will change his life forever: reaching the Goddess Technical Help Line. Granted one wish by the charming young goddess Belldandy--a wish for anything in the world--Keiichi wishes she would stay with him always! Complications are bound to ensue from this; the immediate first being the new couple getting tossed out of the dorm-it's males only!
As the hapless student and his mysterious "foreign beauty" ride around looking for a new place to stay--risking the different dangers of seeking shelter with an otaku convinced Belldandy is an imaginary woman, and a Zen priest convinced she's a sinister witch--Keiichi's still got his classes on Monday morning! How is his new "exchange student" companion going to be received on the N.I.T. campus? A little too well for normal life to ever return...

A long long long long long love story
Seriously, after being a reader of this manga for more than a decade (closer to two, more like..) Damn Keiichi sure ages pretty slowly... and Kosuke Fujishima sure knows how to weave a very long story.
For new readers or romance readers, this is right up your alley, but if you're expecting a resolution sometime soon, you'd be disappointed, I know I am... For the love of God, this manga began in 1988!!

I love the artwork that's from vol.6 to vol.25. They're so beautiful and detailed. It seems to be less and less nice after that.
Anyway, the story's romantic, great and meaningful. I really love it !!
Hopefully, the next chapter's artwork should be better as it used to be.

I never saw the early chapters, so when I read it, it was really surprising... how the artwork has changed completely is really unbelievable
Manga vs Anime
While enjoyable it takes a (long) while to get going. Overall I think the anime does a better job of telling the same story, the manga is too episodic to make it enjoyable to read over long stretches. However the anime manages to tie the stories into a more coherent narrative with relatively minor changes (most of which are for the better). So yeah I'd go against the (tired) wisdom that "the manga is better" for this one.
just love the manga.. i feel the romance between the two protagonists must be one of the more mature ones from all the mangas i've read .. even the anime is not bad at all ... hope they make a third season though...
Well at first the drawing well quite Not on me taste, but as the story progressed (maybe), the drawing really developed into awesomeness and the light hearted interacton between the characters is quite my coffee.. But due to really slow physical developement, I can't really give it a 10....
It's One of my all time beloved manga and anime series.......
20 YEARS LONG
the manga is good but over rated it has been going for over 20 years and there relasonship is the exact same as when it was out. as far as i have read thats around chapter 100
Great story, but takes a while to get going
Honestly, I didn't care for it very much until around volume 9 or 10. I don't even really know how I made it that far. It wasn't all that great, graphically or storywise. Later on, the story and artwork both improve pretty dramatically, and now it's one of my favorite series. If you can get throught he first volumes, I highly recommend it.
art is fine, but there's not really any story... is the conflict with Masa the main plot development? I don't really see what the big deal is :/
Mini Review of Sorts
Like already mentioned, the artwork was kinda crappy at the beginning. But it starts getting better around volume 6 or 7. (To be fair, all-round artwork was good, just that faces were kind of "off", and hairstyles were different from now.) Despite there being not much actual progress (yes, I do mean physical progress >_>) between Keiichi and Belldandy, I still like the sweet and often touching stories Fujishima comes up with, so I'd continue to buy this.
