Oh My Goddess! 20th Anniversary
Making little sense as the manga has been out more than 20 years, it's actually the 26 anniversary, maybe just for American publication? Remember Belldandy, Urd and Skuld as they made one college boy's life very strange and continue to as the series is still going. Did they ever leave Hell?
