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 wonder 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.
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 together beautifully.
Character wise, everything is pretty fun. The main characters bring a lot of a fun to the table especially. In fact, most of the characters are surprisingly unpredictable at times, yielding some funny results.
The music matches sequences well and the track is fairly reminiscent of Final Fantasy XIII's battle theme and victory fanfare which is -- odd.
The only thing that's detracted from this anime for me is the bad video players I use and at the start, I had some serious problems with Misfortune God's bandana and cast -- but I eventually warmed up to it and I learned to tolerate watching the first 10 minutes of an episode more than once.
Ultimately, if you've already picked up the series -- you've probably already decided your views on the anime with 6 episodes under your belt. However, if you were on the fence about it -- please give 1-2 episodes a chance!
The driving plot point of the anime is fresh in the midst of a fairly awkward summer season and allows for fun slapstick comedy on top of some fairly bittersweet moments.
PS; The intro song seems familiar, but I can't really put my finger on it. It's an okay song, although the end theme isn't much fun -- for me at least.
Have a good day and thanks for reading!
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.
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.
In both animes, they make references to other animes.The supernatural people who help the normal people are both otakus
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.
