The OMG movie is a huge improvement from the first OVA
series. The movie was beautiful, artistic, insightful, and overall a very good
anime. Celestine, the former mentor of our favorite goddess Belldandy is introduced.
Celestine has been kept captive on the moon and recently escaped, and he is heading
straight for Belldandy. His mission is to dismiss the heaven's "unjust"
system and fixate a new system where everyone will live in peace without God's
judgments. The movie reveals a lot about Belldandy's past including her previously
erased memories. Overall, the plot is a love dove and it really touched me. What
really stood out in the movie are the action scenes where the Goddess' cast jaw-dropping
spells that screamed its heavenly might. The scenes of the heaven is artistic
and reminds me of Laputa (which is really good.)
my music, so good! I really liked the ending song called "Try to Wish".
The sound and music in the movie, dominated mostly by instrumental melodies, were
also nicely presented and soothing to my ears. Belldandy's voice however is as
bland as ever, but that is merely an opinion. The only complaint I have is the
unchanged dullness of Belldandy who seem to get jealous whenever Keiichi is with
another girl. The overused proposal of love also didn't make the bond between
Belldandy and Keiichi stand out in the genre, however that is repented by some
deep and quotable philosophical insights given by the movie. The ending is satisfying,
and it is the right way to end a true romance series, the series that make people
High: More action,
more romance, more insights than the OVA. Music is a blessing
is dull as ever.
Bottom Line: If you liked the OVA, you will LOVE the
movie. The movie makes the OVA worth watching.
Like almost every anime show turned into a movie, the characters
design is more mature and the overall plot has a more serious tone. The AMG
movie debut worked quite well for me. The animation quality is high with some
nice effects and 3D works, and the colors are always vibrant and lively. One could
see that there was a great effort put in this to make it happens, but what about
the story? Not as catchy, at least not immediately. Belldandy's instructor, Celestin,
got freed from his prison and came to her to change her life. He cast a spell
on her making her, in turn, having some kind of selective amnesia. Poor Keiichi
is back to square one, what is your wish? Sometimes I think the story won't get
easily in the minds of viewers as it requires time to develop well. The best thing
in this story, in my opinion, is that it keeps one wondering of what would come
next and how things would wrap up. It is a good thing that this movie is quite
long (over 100 minutes) and so it gives this enough room for you to think. Anyway,
check this movie out.
Belldandy's former mentor Celestin, who was sealed on the moon
after rebelling against Heaven, has broken free with the help of Morgan, a fairy
princess who was denied her love by the heavens. In his quest to change the world
for the better, Celestin uses Belldandy and Keiichi to try and reprogram Yggdrasil.
Belldandy suffers amnesia which puts her relationship with Keiichi in the balance
again. The Oh My Goddess movie boasts beautiful designs and excellent animation.
Scenes with angels, moving hair, magic spells are magnificent. And the music is
great too, very dramatic, romantic, and evokes awe and wonderment. The movie is
more serious than the OVAs and features sparse comic relief. But, what we do get
is a beautiful romantic drama filled with very pretty images, and featuring an
excellent ending. Another winning entry in the OMG world.
