Ah! My Goddess Series 2 Part 2

Manga continues with the release of the second part of Ah! My Goddess: Flights of Fancy - a series so sickeningly sweet, it's sure to put you off sugar for life. Belldandy is the poster girl for a particular archetype of Japanese femininity; consistently charming, demure and domestic, she's never without a kind word to say, or a freshly made rice ball to press into someone's hand.

The success or failure of Flights of Fancy really depends on your tolerance for the super-sweet romance it has to offer - all those who need sick bags to watch even the mildest of rom-coms would be advised to avert their gaze. But for those who love a bit of romance, FoF provides it in sparkly spades, along with plenty of supernatural drama as the extended cast of goddesses cause mischief for Keiichi and his divine girlfriend.

It's definitely a love it or hate it series - but this ain't marmite, folks. It's more like marshmallow spread.
SCORE: 3.5/5
