What is something you would spend your 23 minutes on per episode, that'll make you very tired of laughing? The answer is "Binbougami ga!"
Here's a review based on my opinions after completing the anime.
Binbougami ga! is not only known for its humour, it also teaches the viewers a lesson in life about sharing, respecting and caring for others rather than being selfish; only think about ourselves. It also displays how anything is possible if we look beyond what's there. For example, Ichiko, the well known beauty queen of the class who's perfect at everything, totally self-centred, pretty much you can describe her as a "snob". Well let me say, even she can change into a more caring person with the help of Momiji, the goddess of misfortune and others.
The art in Binbougami ga! is nice, although it's not the best I ever seen, however it can range from simple artwork to really nice ones. However I would want Momiji and Ranmaru to actually wear the school's uniform throughout the anime when they're at school. I mean wouldn't the school not allow students breaking the dress code rule? Having Ranmaru wear a blue outfit and sandals can quite make her stand out especially when she has bright pink hair and the binds wrapped around her breasts. Although Momiji for the most of the time is wearing a uniform, but it's nothing close to the school's. Despite that, judging from the character designs, it's still nice and you can see everyone's characteristics.
The music and sound effects are pretty good but I would say sometimes, the voice acting may over-exaggerate a bit yet it still brings out the goods of this anime. I was really surprised when I heard Hanazawa Kana (voice of Ichiko) change her voice tone in this. Let's just say all of the Seiyū are amazing with the change of tone, expression, range and emotions of the voice. Great work guys!!
The characters are just spectacular as viewers can see both the main character's two sided personality. For Ichiko, she may be called the beauty queen among the male classmates, but when you see the other side of her she can be a snob. On the other hand, Momiji can be really lazy but she gives out good advices to the viewers and of course, to our Ichiko. When you put these two together, they make the perfect pair and can create many memorable humorous acts. Although as I mentioned before that sometimes they tend to over-exaggerate, anyhow it brings out the joy of laughter to everyone.
I really enjoyed watching Binbougami ga!. I laughed throughout every episode and I wondered to myself "how did they come up with that idea? that's awesome!". I just can't get enough of this with only 13 episodes, I hope for a second season to be on its way soon.
To be honest, at first I was reluctant to watch this however after completing the whole thing, I must say that Binbougami ga! has become one of my personal favourite anime. It is an excellent anime to watch when you want to relax especially having great big laughs in almost every episode.
So if you're looking for a worth to watch anime, Binbougami ga! is the right choice for you. It is just marvelous.
Did I just find myself a rare exquisite gem? Or was I just living under a rock when this series aired back in 2012? I honestly don't know why or how I didn't hear of this back then.
I've been watching a bit more titles this 2014 compared to the past couple of years and I've only been inclined to write a review again just THIS once. So I'll keep it sweet and short!
If I had just one word to describe the story, it would be "refreshing". I know that there are tons of titles out there that involve deities but this one just stands on its own. Its lighthearted and even breaks the 4th wall but you can't help but really get into it. And I just love the characters! Most of them, if not all of them anyway. How often do you get a protagonist that would qualify as a high school villain/queen in any other show? But she grows on you and watching her develop was such a treat. And then here's our deuteragonist whose character is really just outstanding. I mean her job is to restore balance to the world and all but I love how she went from dutifully lazy > menacing > annoying > moe.
And the dynamic between the two was so superbly done, I don't think I've watched any other show that comes close. You could kinda sense it in the OP and ED sequence.
The art was really good as I didn't notice a drop in quality even when watching on a big screen.
But more importantly, this is probably the biggest contributing factor why this show made me laugh so much as its syncs perfectly with the parodies. They used a bunch of styles on the characters which I really enjoyed. And let me just get this out there: I love BOOBIES! I really do. And this show has given me my fix. But don't get me wrong, I'm usually put off and could smell cheap fanservice a mile away, but the way they delivered it here was excellent. Not once did I think that it was forced. I just sat here, giggled, and muttered boobies when it happened.
Soundtrack is also excellent and upbeat, just the way I like it. Normally when you marathon a series, you sometimes skip the OP and ED sequence but I don't think I did it even once here. Let that be a testimony in itself on how good it is.
All in all, I really really enjoyed watching. Normally I would finish a 12-13 episode series in one sitting but Binbougami forced me to do it in two. Reason being, the thought of finishing it so fast made me sad and I wanted to prolong my time with it.
I hope what I wrote would convince those who aren't sold yet on just the synopsis :)
And if you'll excuse me, Imma go pick up the manga so I can get MOAR! read more
From the same studio as Gintama there is Binbougami Ga!. Binbougami Ga! features the same over the top humor.
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.
The style of humor, which is based on absurdity and parodies, is very similar. There is a mix of realistic and bizarre (the aliens in Gintama and the gods in Binbougami) elements . The heroes and enemies are likable with some apparent flaws. Plots tend to be episodic with some longer arcs. Stories often make the viewer feel warm and fuzzy.
Both are mainly comedic series but have some drama and character development. Lots of parodies, interesting characters and over the top humor. The only major difference is the main character cast. In Binbougami ga! the main characters are a rich, selfish (but lonely) high school girl and a god of misfortune who takes the form of a girl with dirty clothes and a bandaged arm, while in Gintama the main cast is a yorozuya (odd jobs) trio of a lazy silver haired guy who reads shonen jump and loves sugar, a normal boy with glasses who's usually the tsukkomi and a china girl with monstrous strength and a bottomless stomach. Even if the charascters are a bit different the atmosphere is about the same.
What can I say? It seems that the author of Binbougami ga! is a fan of Gintama.
1. Both Gintama and Binbougami have the same irrelevant humour (except that Binbougami ga! doesn't follow Gintama's dirty jokes).
2. Both show have the same hilarious parodies.
3. Both show are adapted from the same company (Sunrise).
We can say that Binbougami ga! is kind of replacement for Gintama's absent~
Same director, exact same style of humour and show.
- Both anime have parodies from different animes
- Both are animes with serious moments and calm ones
- Sunrise !!!!
A must watch if you want to cry from all the laughing :D
Both anime are ridiculous, over-the-top comedies that contain lots of parodies/references of other anime and manga. Both anime can also be quite serious and dramatic at times.
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.
Similar humour style that revolves around parody. Both are downright hilarious if you are a fan of comedies that don't take themselves seriously.
Oh wow, I lost count the number of times I've laughed when I watched these two series. But jokes aside, Binbō-gami ga! and Haiyore! Nyaruko-san has quite a few stances in common:
Both series has parodies and makes fun of culture and nearly everything around them.
Both series has an overenergetic female protagonists who has a strange personality. Yet deep down, they are caring towards their friends.
Both series contains theme of supernatural.
Both series has a ridiculously high levels of comedy that pokes fun at nearly every moment or chance when the opportunity calls upon.
Both series takes places at similar places including the school.
Overall, these two series are highly entertaining and a fun way to enjoy anime.
Fairly normal person gets visited by an bizarre supernatural deity and their life gets flipped upside down. Plenty of references to other anime & manga are present in both.
Finding an anime with some funny moments? Both of these shows are know to have a laughable, yet slapstick moments, when characters interact with each other in a comedic way. There are numerous references throughout the show which makes you find them in various spots. Also, there are fighting scenes though it is funny in a sort of way.
Nyaruko-san is about a girl who wants to protect a boy from being in danger, and somewhat a big fan of anime and manga. Also it features a main male character. Binbougami ga, features two main female character, having a bickering argument, and mostly fight several times.
