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?

Well to see a story about two opposites that can attract in some weird ways, this is it. Binbougami Ga!, a series about a girl who has the most fortune in existence is preyed upon by a god of Misfortune. Basically, the god has to balance out Sakura Ichiko's fortune to an acceptable level or whoever she makes friends with or just passes by with sheer coincidence, their bad luck triples which causes some massive headaches for the god herself. Armed with an over-sized needle as her right arm, she tries to suck out a good portion of Sakura's fortune to level her out. But read more

This is a quick review. Binbougami ga! is simple but great that's it, is as simple as that.

I have seen the concept of a Shinigami or a god of something coming for the MC, because or they want to kill him or want to help the MC, Binbougami is just like that but very well presented, it's very good, and it made sense.

Art & Animation
The animation was great, the landscape was very good,the characters were very well detailed and were beautiful to see and it was colorful.

The sound of this on every aspect is just amazing, i really loved it there's not a flaw for read more

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

Good Luck Girl is perfect for people who don’t like anime. It is one of my favorite anime series of all time which I found it on youtube.

Misty Chronexia Number 3 best anime. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=176Pp2o6Fvs

The story follows Poverty God as she tries to unsuccessfully steal the happiness energy of a high school girl. This girl is the Eric Cartman of anime: manipulative, selfish, terrifying, ruthless, and leader. Except, she was blessed with freakish athletic talent and big boobs at 16 years old. Poverty God almost always loses against this girl. Watching them fight and bicker is completely fascinating, and similar to watching Always read more

Anime: Gintama
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.

Anime: Haiyore! Nyaruko-san
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. 
reportRecommended by SanzuNoKawa
Anime: Sabagebu!
Both have over the top comedic female duos as main characters 
reportRecommended by lazylady
Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Also features a school setting with over the top humor although a bit less 'magical'.  
reportRecommended by hxkclan
Anime: Seto no Hanayome
Both series employ a similar type of humor that is a mix of parody and over-exaggeration of character personalities. This goes in line with the fact that Both series employ a very dynamic and well-defined set of characters. Seto no Hanayome has a slight focus on harem jokes and romantic comedy parody. Binbougami is more focused on the struggling personality of the main character. Fans of the comedy style presented in Seto no Hanayome will definitely enjoy Binbougami and vice versa.

Anime: Beelzebub
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!).
