One day, Keiichi was minding his dorm chores, and his final chore was to make a phone call for his senpais. But he dials a wrong number, and got the "Goddess Assistance Agency." Out of nowhere appears the Goddess Belldandy, and she offers him one wish to change his life. ONE wish. Thinking this was a practical joke, Keiichi casually wishes: "I want a Goddess like you to stay with me forever."
Little does he know that his wish becomes true, and thus begins his new life living with a Goddess!! Not only that, but he soon receives visits from Belldandy's sisters, Urd and Skuld, who are intent in seeing that the fledgling relationship goes the way they want, even if it is at odds with each other and with Keiichi. And what better way to keep tabs than to live with Keiichi and Belldandy as one big happy family as they deal with college life, dating, rivals, and demons.
