Now Gan is the punching bag and straight man in the series. Perhaps not as straight as Belldandy, but lets be honest, nobody is as much of a straight woman as Belldandy. There are all kinds of misadventures through the Morisato household, including attacking big bad kaiju about the size of a 5 year old. Looking for treasure in the attic, and drinking tea. Seriously, this show has no plot other than random shenanigans from a bunch of women wielding god-like powers on a miniature scale!
The Goddess Urd and Skuld don't seem to have any responsibilities on earth other than being thorns in the side of Keichi Morisato and Belldandy. Belldandy is a lesser main character because she actually has things she needs to do like prepare meals. However I was sad that Belldandy doesn't play a major role in the show as she is one of my favorite characters in the series. This is not to say that her sisters lack likable qualities as well. I was also depressed by the lack of Keichi. Seriously the guy is a dope but he is fun to have around for them to play off of.
The show is basically about being both adorable and funny. It is extremely lighthearted in tone and it shows in all the characters getting along with no quips or fights that dominate the goddess sisters in the main series. I genuinely enjoyed this, when i first purchased this series, I would often fall asleep to it. This is proof that the show has a calming nature on my constant furious, curse spewing nature. When I first laid eyes on the box-art I had good feelings about what I was about to watch.
I believe anyone that loves silly shenanigans should Give this series a shot. I feel that while it lacks any real substance it is worth a try as what it does posses is heartwarming comedy to warm the cockles of your heart and cause the occasional fit of laughter. The show is fairly rare to find but if you can locate a copy for a reasonable price I suggest giving it a shot. I know I never regretted it!
So another week passes in paradise and we find ourselves at the end of another title in Bone's Anime Pile. I hope you will join me for my next review when I consider what it means to embody wisdom and justice in Patlabor TV!
This is Mr. Bones wishing you all the best, and if I don't see you, good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night...
