...Urd Bolt? They are REALLY letting themselves to wild. Should this
even be CONSIDERED a translation?

Well, in a word, she didn't. It's a wrong translation. The line actually
says "...even with your power sealed." (I am doing this from memory, but
this is pretty much it). The seal refers to her earring (left?right? I
can't remember... The side with long chain), which supposedly limits her
powers. See the whole Terrible Master fiasco for details.

Once again, seal refers to Belldandy's. What in god's name they are
doing messing around translation like that I have no idea. There should
be a limit on the amount of alcohol these guys can consume. I shudder to
think what else could have caused them to do this.

To sum up... You're right. They are wrong. Give yourself a pat in the
