Ah! My Goddess S2 1

The priest who used to run the temple that Keiichi, Belldandy, Urd, and Skuld currently lived in has returned from his training and gets trapped in the crossfire of an Urd/Skuld fight. He tries to get them to make up but they mostly ignored him until he started insulting them which he gets blown up instead and leaves once again. Meanwhile, Megumi, Keiichi, and Belldandy have some tea while having some conversation. Megumi mentions that it has been one year since Keiichi has met Belldandy which she mentions the contract but she calls Belldandy strange for it. Lind tells God that the system has been repaired for the most point except for five percent of it which the Goddess Assistance Agency registration list is part of that five percent. That means that Belldandy will not be able to stay on Earth. Keiichi and Belldandy were about to head to the university when the phone rings. Keiichi picks it up and talks with God who tells him the bad news that Belldandy has to return to Heaven. Lind talks to another goddess who found part of the wish but needs Keiichi's voice to restore it. Keiichi needs to remember the exact words in order to restore the file which he thought he knew the exact words but he didn't. Urd and Skuld wanted to try their extreme methods to make Keiichi remember but Belldandy decides to take him to the university for a change of pace.

Belldandy tells Keiichi not to worry about remembering the wish but he can't. Then they are interrupted by Ohtaki and Tamiya who Belldandy takes Keiichi away from them. Urd talks to Lion and the other goddess in Heaven which she suggests to go into the main system and read the code which is a grave offense. Belldandy and Keiichi worked at a 7/11 which she wants to spend time with alone before she leaves. They go back home to see Skuld making a computer to hack into the main system for Belldandy's praise. The next day, Keiichi asks Belldandy on a date in order to maximize their remaining time together. Keiichi became nervous because he called it a date which Belldandy is happy with this. They walked around the city and had some ice cream together along with some lunch. Keiichi steps on a can while walking down some stairs and falls down which Belldandy saves him from any serious injuries. They ran away from scene after that since people saw her using her powers. Keiichi tells her that he was unable to do anything for her today but she tells him that she knows he has her in his thoughts to the point that she forgets about the contract. They both together wanted to be together which they feel that they will be able to meet together in the future even if they are seperated. Keiichi says the exact wish once again which this time he didn't say -sama. Belldandy spread her wings to confirm the contract which Lion and Urd thought they were the ones who restored the contract. Keiichi and Belldandy hold hands and had an embrace before going back home. Belldandy and Keiichi were sitting outside when Skuld is mad at them for not using her machine and has Banpei to attack Keiichi.

The second season starts where the first season ended with Belldandy's contract been nullified because of the Lord of Terror incident. After screwing up the first time around, Keiichi managed to get the exact wording of the wish correct and once again, Belldandy is able to stay with Keiichi. It's a nice way to start off the new season with a nice date between the two without much interference from Urd, Skuld, or anyone else for that matter. It seems that this season will introduce more of the goddess from Heaven which will have more a mystical feel to it compared to last season which it was mostly focused on the human characters. At some point, Skuld will get her avatar during the season. The new OP is alright while the new ED is much better than the two ED songs of the first season. The animation style is the same as last season which the close ups looked great. The next episode has a depressed Sayoko along with Belldandy making a sweater.
