This is one of the first manga books I have read and I was not disappointed when I read it. The beginning of the plot happened a bit fast it felt like there should be more to it, a bit more length but it all made sense, that is the only bad thing I have to say about it.
The art work was top-notch in my opinion no complaints there.
The stories in the book were quite funny I am definetly going to get the rest of this series for my newly started collection.
I recommend this book to anybody into this stuff.

This tpb book is great for newcomers to the OMG universe, it is just as funny and romantic as the others in the series. It features a lot of the stories from '1-555-goddess', but adds its own unique stories never before published! I recommend this book very highly!!! buy this then buy the rest they're great!!!

Wrong number...I don't think so 29 Dec 2002
By Jono - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have seen the 5 episode OAV series, then you will love this. As it starts of, Keichi Morisato is a college student who doesn't really have any luck with women, until one day he calls a beautiful goddess of the name Belldandy. She says she can grant him anything he desires and Keichi of course, thinks this is a joke by his mates wishes that a girl like her would be with him forever. Their life from then on continues through the series.

As you know, this is contains previous material from 1-555-GODDESS but also contains the lost stories which will answer many a question you might have.If you see this book for the first time and see it isn't as great as it looks on the OAV series, Dont Worry! Because at this time, Fujishima was just getting use to drawing the characters and throughout the series gets to look better and better.

If you are wondering if you should get this or not, the answer is obviously yes! The humour in this book is funny as but if you already own 1-555-GODDESS and are a bit worried if you should waste your money on this, you're not. Because 7 of the 8 chapters are lost and new.

1st Chapter: Wrong number
2nd Chapter: Into the lair of the Anime Otaki
3rd Chapter: A man's home is his....temple?
4th Chapter: College exchange Goddess
5th Chapter: Those whom goddess has jointed together, let not woman put asunder
6th Chapter: SLP Camera- Mission Accomplished!
7th Chapter: The lullaby of love
8th Chapter: The Megumi Problem

I Recommend this book for manga collectors, OMG! Fans and all newbies!

Start With This Book 6 Feb 2003
By AstroNerdBoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I saw the 5-part OAV (original animation video) "Oh My Goddess" DVD's and was very impressed. However, because the series was so short, I went online to see if there was a manga (Japanese comic book) series since most anime is from manga.
Enter "Wrong Number" done by Dark Horse Comics. This should replace the "555-Goddess" book previously done since this contains the chapters that were not included in that original book 1. People who've watched the OAV's will see the major elements from the first and second videos done in this book. However, there are notable differences such as a monk that lived in the temple that Belldandy and Keiichi end up living in. We are introduced to the following characters:
Keiichi (the guy with the wish), Belldandy (the goddess), Tamiya (large classmate), Aoyama (cool classmate), Sayoko (the girl jealous of Belldandy), and Megumi (Keiichi's sister).
One thing people who've seen the OAV will be surprised at is the art. Belldandy doesn't look like she does in the OAV. Much like many other comic strips or comic books, Fujuishima-san had not yet refined the artwork. Don't worry, the artwork gets better with each volume.
Story-wise, this volume mainly focuses on Keiichi and Belldandy getting to know each other and their life at college.
Bottom line: If you loved the "Oh My Goddess" DVD set, you will REALLY enjoy this manga and all of the manga's in this series. If you've never seen the OAV's but want wholesome, light reading material, get this book!

Essential reading for AMG fans. 17 Jan 2006
By Keith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been watching anime on-and-off since 1992 and it has only been this past year that I have been able to watch all of the animated versions of the Ah!/Oh! My Goddess! franchise. Now I've become a fan that needs to know more but the anime can only tell you so much. That's when I decided to go straight to the source and pick up this manga, which I've never done before as don't normally read manga!

This is Volume 1 of Dark Horse's re-release of the Ah!/Oh! My Goddess! manga series by Kosuke Fujishima; now featuring the manga industry standard right-to-left reading direction which I still have to get acclimated to. Since it is the first volume of the series, the character designs are still in it's early development but characters are still recognizable. If you've seen the new AMG tv series then you'll recognize some of the plot used plus the stuff in-between that wasn't used. Overall good stuff.

Extras review: Translator Notes and Letters Column 2 April 2007
By Cedric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
OMG has *the* most impressive translator notes (the book calls it the Editors's Commentary) I've read in a manga. Where other manga will have bare minimum single page of notes, OMG has detailed comments about not just the translations, but the inside-jokes and references by the original author (some of which the editor admits to not understanding!). Additionally, the notes digress a bit into the editor's otaku impressions, often during a trip to Japan. The manga preserves the letters column from the OMG comic books days, providing more interesting background and insight of the series, the author, and Japanese culture. This is one of the best extras I've had the pleasure to read in a manga!

Wrong Number is Just Right 11 Jun 2002
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well, I've just finished reading "Wrong Number", chronologically now correct as the first "Oh My Goddess!" graphic novel from Dark Horse.

If those of you who have "1-555-Goddess" were wondering if "Wrong Number" would be worth getting, the answer is "YES!"

Only the first story is a repeat from "1-555-Goddess." Keiichi Morisato, young college student, dials a wrong number. Instead of a take-out food joint he gets the goddess Technical Helpline. The goddess Belldandy arrives to grant Keiichi one wish. Thinking it's a joke, he wishes, "I want a goddess like you to be with me always!" And the wish is granted, resulting in Belldandy staying with Keiichi.
So far so familiar, as this is also the first story from "1-555-Goddess". But the remainder of the stories were not included before. We get to see how a goddess can affect even the most hardcore otaku, how Keiichi and Belldandy got living quarters at the Temple, how Belldandy became a student at Nekomi, the start of Sakoyo's rivalry with Belldandy, Otaki in love, and Megumi's arrival.
Both the artwork and story-telling styles are a bit rough around the edges compared to the later stylings of this manga, but it is all quite enjoyable.

All in all, very much worth the ...price.
