What They Say
When Belldandy learns that traditional Japanese custom dictates a woman make homemade chocolate for her love on Valentine's Day, she vows to make this a V-Day to remember. But when troublemakers extraordinaire Urd and Mara toss themselves into the mix, it's instant hot chocolate - but not as hot as the situation Keiichi is in when the third goddess splashes into his life - Urd and Belldandy's "genius" of a younger sister, Skuld!

The Review
Urd is still up to her old antics. She just can't stand to see how slowly Belldandy and Keiichi's love affair is progressing. So Urd explains to Belldandy the concept of giving chocolate to guys for Valentines Day. Of course, Urd makes a spiked version of Belldandy's chocolate and tries to switch it with the normal stuff. Then Mara shows up and attempts to switch Belldandy's chocolate with a poisoned version, and well, you can see how everything quickly gets mixed up.

Mara is still obsessed with ruining anything Belldandy loves, but now she has decided to just end Earth's existence altogether. But before she can summon the Lord of Terror another little moe terror arrives in Keiichi's house. Belldandy and Urd's littlest sister Skuld drops in announced. Skuld has few goddess powers and a real dislike for Belldandy's attention towards Keiichi. However, Skuld is a very talented inventor and mechanic. These chapters work well as the three sisters interact very much like any other siblings. Of course, big sister Urd goes to far and has her goddess license revoked. This ultimately collides with Mara's summoning of the Lord of Terror. Because of Urd's demon half, she ultimately transforms into the Lord of Terror. Since Urd doesn't believe in doing anything small, she decides she wants to destroy the whole universe. Will Belldandy find a way to defeat the now much more powerful Lord of Terror Urd without killing her?

This volume has great color pages (even Urd taking a bath) but a few of the regular pages were a little faded so I had to knock off a little on the 'Packaging' grade. Another bonus in this volume are the plethora of short comics with mini-Urd and a rat, they are seriously funny.
