On January 6, 2005, a new television anime series of Ah! My Goddess! (ああっ女神さまっ, Aa! Megami-sama!?) began airing in Japan, again produced by Anime International Company and distributed in North America by Media Blasters. This version has returned to the manga roots of the series, retelling events much closer to their original form. Though there are minor differences, typically based on what is considered unacceptable for television, this version follows the canon of the manga quite closely. Although only 24 episodes and one recap were aired, the Japanese DVD release had two more bonus episodes that haven't and will not air on TV.
A second season titled Ah! My Goddess: Everyone Has Wings (ああっ女神さまっ それぞれの翼, Aa! Megami-sama: Sorezore no Tsubasa?) (titled Flights of Fancy in the U.S.) had resumed the story on 6 April 2006 from where the series left off in season one.
Director Hiroaki Gōda has already stated that he'd like to be able to cover all of the manga in the TV series, making future seasons beyond the 2nd a likely possibility
