Both Tamiya and Otaki respect and fear her very much, obediently following her orders. Chihiro is voiced by Yuka Imai in the Japanese version of the series. Generally nice and friendly, Gan is somewhat emotional and very excitable, but highly prone to gluttony. Due to his nice and trusting nature, he is often led off on some wild adventure by Skuld and Urd, with the end result of Gan getting physically abused in some way. Gan has a crush on and prefers the company of Belldandy, since she is much quieter and far from being violent towards him than her sisters.
Sora Hasegawa[ edit ] Voiced by: A rather timid, mousy girl, she looks up to Keiichi and Belldandy. Throughout the series, the two help her to overcome her lack of confidence and believe in herself. When Keiichi leaves to work for Chihiro's company Whirlwind, he bestows the directorship of the Motor Club to her. She accepts the position, despite the fact that previous clubs that were led by her all collapsed though not necessarily by her fault. Every time she gets drunk, she whines to Keiichi about how people think she is a middle school student, flashing her chest to show she is growing breasts to him.
She has a crush on Toshiyuki Aoshima. Appearing only in the TV series, Hijiri has become a running joke in the series, appearing from time to time in minor roles in the stories, such as being shown witnessing the Goddesses' dramatic battles, accidentally kidnapping a spirit that was transformed by Marller, or simply being there at the right time to help Keiichi get a meal.
He meets Skuld during the time where she was learning to ride a bike. He was the one who taught her that it did not matter if she fell off the first few times she tried, what mattered was that she got back up, and eventually she learned. This coincided with Skuld's magical powers slowly developing—it was revealed that a Goddess' power comes from loving others. Skuld started to fall in love with Sentaro, and hence her powers started to develop.
Sentaro eventually moves away with his family, though Skuld does not become sad by it, as she claims that despite the distance they will always meet when they want. It turns out that Sentaro only moved to the town just across the river. Urd's comments regarding this embarrassed Sentaro and angered Skuld. It is unclear whether or not Sentaro is aware that Skuld is a goddess, but he has seen Skuld use her powers, has heard her state that she is the goddess of the future, has seen Skuld's angel, and he has stated albeit through inner-dialogue that she looks like a goddess.
After witnessing Belldandy's "spiritual enlightenment", Koshian left on a pilgrimage to seek his own enlightenment, leaving his temple and house in the care of Keiichi and Belldandy.
He returns in the anime at one point after traveling for eleven months, but soon gets caught up in a fight and leaves again. After returning a second time, he appears briefly, kicking Belldandy who at that time has an evil mark on her head and Keiichi out; but when Belldandy gets her goddess licences back, she and Keiichi return to the temple. He is last seen watching Belldandy's lighting burst, calling it the " Great Dragon "; then he disappears for the rest of the series. She is also quite rich, coming from a wealthy family: When Belldandy appears, all the guys' attention turns to her rather than Sayoko.
Mishima begins to get jealous of Belldandy and wants to make her upset by seducing Keiichi, even though she does not have any interest in him.
She even goes to the lengths of teaming up with Toshiyuki Aoshima and Marller to bring her down. Gradually, as the series progresses, she becomes less and less antagonistic, even offering Keiichi relationship advice and foiling Marller's schemes. It seems as though she develops feelings for Keiichi at the beginning of season 2, when she did not feel as lonely when he was with her. Sayoko has seen both Urd and Belldandy use their powers, although she now believes that Belldandy is a witch.
She is shown to have much pride, and seems to almost enjoy competing with Belldandy at times. Keima, like his children, is incredibly skilled as a mechanic and as a motorcycle driver though he is actually a glass blower. He dislikes being called "father" and much prefers to be addressed by his given name.
He also has a severe form of heterophobia fear of members of the opposite sexexcept for people that he loves. Belldandy was the only "stranger" who did not trigger this fear upon first contact. She attends the Nekomi Institute of Technology, like Keiichi, as an engineering student. Megumi is also a very skilled mechanic and motorcycle driver. She goes on to become the "queen" of bike racers around Nekomi. Belldandy has remarked that she sees a similarity between Megumi and Skuld, and that she would like to see Skuld learn some things from Megumi.
As we know from the recent developments in the manga, she has a lot of success with boys, but she is not lucky in love because all of her boyfriends feel eclipsed by her motor-queen status and overshadowed by Keiichi. Takano is a master player of mahjong and easily beats Skuld, Urd and Peorth at the game. She is also a much more confident and outgoing person than her husband, Keima. After spending a few days together, their relationship ends when Urd returns to her normal size and confronts Shohei, but not before she gives something special to him to remember her by.
In both the original manga and the TV series, Shohei entertains Urd by lending her his handheld game console. The scene where Shohei meets the grown up fully restored Urd and she tells him that her "little sister" has left is different in the manga and anime. In the manga, the parting is final and Shohei understands that he'll never see "little Urd" once again. In the anime, Urd tells him to grow up quick and kisses him on the forehead, leaving the chance for a future relationship open.
She is also a second year correspondence course student in exorcism. Keiichi's friends and his sister Megumi are aware of Urd's existence and her relationship with Belldandy and residency at Keiichi's home; however, for the most part they are not aware of her "goddess" status. For the longest time, she was unable to summon her angel since she was so scared when she first saw it and ordered it never to come out.
She has since gotten over whatever self-doubt that was holding her back and can now once again call her angel at will, much to Skuld's chagrin she had originally thought that Urd had no angel and wanted to top her eldest sister by being first. Personality[ edit ] Unlike her younger sister BelldandyUrd is very impulsive and headstrong. Belldandy describes Urd as being very passionate about everything she does.

Urd is a great believer in the idea that the 'End justifies the Means', although, as Belldandy puts it: Another god had fetched the cure six days earlier.
