Overview

What's inside? Let's start with what's outside: a metallic gold embossed cover with french flaps, featuring the Goddess sisters on the front, and Belldandy and her angel Holy Bell on the interior. Then the contents kick off with a wacky intro to the Oh My Goddess! saga, in the form of an eight-page "fan" manga by Neon Genesis Evangelion Angel designer Yoshitou Asari! Then, OMG! Colors's namesake: four classic Oh My Goddess! stories, each focusing on a different goddess, and colorized under Kosuke Fujishima's supervision. Finally, an exhaustive "Encyclopedia" section cross-references the people, places, and things of the first thirty volumes of OMG!, including the differences between the two English versions, and many in-jokes about the series never before revealed!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally announced for release in 2005 but delayed for over three years, this is an oversized companion to Fujishima's smile-inducing fantasy sitcom Oh My Goddess!, the longest-running manga in the United States (published by Dark Horse since 1994). Under a lavish embossed gold cover, it reprints four episodes of the series with gorgeous full color added, each one focusing on one of the main goddess characters: Belldandy (who came to Earth to grant college student Keiichi's wish and stayed to become the love of his life); her troublemaking sisters, Urd and Skuld; and her self-proclaimed rival, Peorth. Also included is an introductory parody manga by guest artist Yoshitoh Asari and a text section including chapter summaries and an extensive encyclopedia of the series that explains many details of its complicated English publication and translation history. VERDICT Because of the series' emphasis on female protagonists and its beautifully detailed renderings of their fashions, it may surprise some to discover that it's serialized in Japan in a magazine for young men. American readers of both genders have fallen under its spell, and for them this volume is more than worthwhile.—S.R.
