Synopsis

At the expense of the people and things around her, Sakura has absorbed so much "happiness energy" that she has caused an energy imbalance in the world. In order to return balance to the world, the Poverty God, Momiji, sets out to take away Sakura's ability to absorb this energy. Will Momiji be able to put a stop to Sakura's absorbing abilities, or will the God succumb to her happiness?

Poverty Gods. Gods of Destitution.. Ever heard of them before?
I hadn't. It's ridiculous and you wouldn't think they would be able to actually make a coherent plot that has a moral behind it using them. However, I was positively surprised.


After reading the synopsis I wasn't really excited about starting it and the over the top voice acting and character depiction wasn't that attractive in the first couple of episodes. Give it a chance though and you won't be disappointed.


The ludicrous anime references that vary from Death Note to DBZ will keep you engaged and watching out for the next one. The pacing read more

Ichiko is a rich, beautiful mary-sue of a teenage girl, who is adored by all of the boys of her class–but hated by the females. In short, she’s pretty much the stereotypical bitch, but underneath her apparent superiority-complex, she’s really a lonely child longing for friendship. She also has an excessive amount of “Fortune,” which causes her suck other Fortune energy from those around her. This causes Momiji, a god of misfortune, to try and steal Ichiko’s fortune, and a beautiful love-hate relationship is formed!

Binbougami ga! is a very silly series. In fact, it’s a really stupid series–sometimes in the positive ha-ha kind of stupid, read more

Hmmm…….

You know, seeing the previews of this show a few months ago, I wasn’t the biggest fan of it.

Then again, as I said in the last review, comedy is a subjective art form and this especially goes into anime. For me, it’s like comedic shows like Sgt. Frog, Panty and Stocking w/ Garterbelt, Squid Girl, & Kill La Kill does better with me than the likes of Baka to Test, Love Hina, B Gata H Kei and Nisekoi. You can say some of them are the same but no…..they’re not.

I can see myself liking it but then again, it does have the annoying eechi show read more

Binbougami ga! is an excellent example of a simply outrageous anime. I'd chalk up Beelzebub or Kore wa Zombie Desu-ka as similar animes.


I was on the fence with the anime originally because of the story synopsis. On top of the weird girl with the bandana, I was turned off until the 5th episode came out. Then I started to watch the series.

Binbougami ga! is hilarious and completely slapstick. It features obvious references to other anime/manga or Japanese tropes while boasting a simple but fairly heartwarming arc as Sakura Ichiko proves she is a dynamic character.

Comedy wise, the visuals and voice acting really bring it all read more

Recommendations

Aside from the comedy/parody vibe of both animes, when it comes to drama and serious scenes about life's lessons, both have the similar feel. 
Binbougami ga! started when Nyaruko-san ended, but the feel that those two anime brings are the same: supernatural elements in a comical way, lots of parodies of other animes, similar humor and situation and a little bit of romance. Watching Bimbougami ga! is like continuing watching Nyaruko-san. 
Both have over the top comedic female duos as main characters 
Binbougami ga! seems like it would appeal to people who liked the female delinquents in Beelzebub. It has similar humor and roughness of language, as well, and beings of the supernatural involved in the main plot (demons in Beelzebub, gods of poverty/misfortune in Binbougami ga!).

Also features a school setting with over the top humor although a bit less 'magical'.  
Both animes have the same kind of wacky outrageous feel to them. Also both have female protagonist.
