Ah! My Goddess Episode 17 — Ah! What Are Ability And Effort?
Published December 22, 2012
Sora, lacking in self confidence, is entered into a women-only go-kart race. She initially refuses to participate, but Belldandy persuades her. Sora moves in with the others at the temple, and Skuld builds a race track for her to practice on. Skuld also builds a robot to drive the kart for Sora, and Urd tries to transform Sora's personality with one of her potions, but both schemes are unsuccessful. With Sora about to give up, Belldandy convinces her to try one last time. Sora finally succeeds, but on the day of the race she falls ill, brought on by her fear of failure. Eventually, following Keiichi's example and with some wise words from Belldandy, Sora is able to compete in the race.
