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?

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

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

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.


【Story】Rating: 8

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 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

Recommendations

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. 
reportRecommended by FalloutShounen3
Anime: Sabagebu!
Both have over the top comedic female duos as main characters 
reportRecommended by lazylady
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: 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!). 
reportRecommended by Numi
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: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Also features a school setting with over the top humor although a bit less 'magical'.
