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!

I always regarded Ecchi, Comedy, Parody anime as something to pass the time. For the reasons: 1.) It is hilarious (who doesn't want a good laugh?) 2.) The story is light, not too complicated (like I said, just something to pass the time) 3.) Full of ecchi moments (I know I sound like a perverted old woman) 4.) Also, full of cute moments~
But, this anime, isn't JUST an ecchi, parody or a something-really-hilarious-and-not-too-serious anime~ It is more than that. Comedy-wise, it didn't disappoint me. I find myself laughing hard at all the funny scenes which makes me feel better everyday~ But, it didn't fail to give every episode a meaning, too.
This anime is light and yet it has substance (if you know what I mean). A very good watch, indeed! ;) Highly recommended, so I gave it a perfect score. :)

I'm gonna write a review this time for the manga and currently running anime, Bindougami ga!. The manga started in 2008 in Jump SQ and the anime is currently airing in the Summer 2012 season.
So far I gotta say this series has been a big surprise. I never took notice of this series until the anime started airing and from the look of the manga's scalation releases, so did most other people. This series is like a small hidden gem that not many people will take notice of.
The story premise is simple. Momiji is a lazy, rude and flat-chested Poverty God who carries bad luck whose mission is to fix the "imbalance" in the world caused by Sakura Ichiko; a girl who is considered blessed in every way, brains, beauty and even brawns but have a two-faced, near rotten personality. Ichiko is very lucky, too lucky; she's even stealing luck from the people surrounding her. Momiji has to stop her from stealing people's luck and to make her a regular human, but it was tougher than expected and so the battle between God and Girl begins .
Now at first this seems like a really regular setting for a manga, well sort of. I didn't expect it to be a slapstick comedy though and to be true, I was pleasantly surprise by it . The series hits me with a very forward style of humor that constantly keeps me on my feet. Most of the comedy comes from the interactions between the cast of characters, at first from mostly the clashes between Momiji and Ichiko but later on from other characters as well. Another aspect of humor is references made by the characters(mostly Momiji) towards other manga and animes, such as One Piece and Dragon Ball and I even saw Doraemon and To-Love-Ru in there. I even thought that they were doing "It's Over 900000" before I realized in Japan the meme wasn't that famous.
Now and then there are a few dramatic moments in the series which helps to show the other sides of the cast; such as Ichiko being a lonely and misunderstood girl behind her two-faces and Momiji, who's suppose to be extremely ruthless in her mission to be more compassionate and caring towards her target and rival. They also serve the purpose of progressing the story of the series rather than making it completely filled with jokes and humor. This is a similar formula to a lot of mangas and animes, such as Sora no Otoshimono and Ranma1/2.
The most important aspect of the series is the cast, which is the main course of the whole thing. At first you are introduced to the I guess main pair of the series, the God & Girl rivals, Momiji and Ichiko. Their personality couldn't be more far apart and that is what drives the series at first. As the series progresses, more character are introduced, with many different personalities and archetypes and this diversifies the moods of the series. They're also well developed as most of them had their share of personal back story and dramatic moments that helps them bond with each other, from both the main and supporting characters.
There isn't a lot of ecchi elements to the series and they're mostly used for laughs rather than fanservice (well it maybe fanservice for some) and it mostly involves poking fun at either Ichiko's breast, Momiji's lack of breast, some small S&M and perverted fantasies by the series' resident perverts.
The most striking thing and maybe most obvious thing in this cat and mouse game between Momiji and Ichiko all the ironies in it. First is that since Momiji carries a lot of bad luck with her, so really every plan that she hatches against Ichiko will likely fail. Second and maybe the biggest irony of all is that Ichiko was never really happy in her life even though she was blessed with everything; and maybe the real blessing granted upon her, was the God of Misfortune meant to make her life miserable, may actually make her happy.
I recommend this series to everyone, you may have to give it a couple of chapters or 1-2 episodes, but trust me you won't regret it.

The Story is highly unique with 2 very opposing character types. At first it would seem like you would sympathize with Ichiko but you find out shes one of the worst most undeserving people ever. Though as the show steadily progresses that sympathy builds a little cause you realize shes damaged inside from various missing aspects of the human experience. Then you bring in Momiji a god of misforunte who's sole duty on earth is to make Ichikos life worse and spread her good fortune to others to balance the world. So with a snotty brat like Ichiko to take down Momiji has her work cut out for her.
Steadily the show is building a broader cast with all sorts of interesting character types. From a turtle man too a bizarre teddy bear you got a really interesting cast to say the least. I have not seen many examples of these types of characters, i have seen elements of them but the combinations of all these little pieces creates a very unique cast. I look forward to seeing who is next in the line up for this series as the shows opening credits promise at least one or two more intriguing characters.
Right now Momiji is my favorite character in this series, her design is unlike anything i have ever seen before in anime or television. A cross between a homeless person and a country girl. The one shoe'd,overall clad, one arm bandaged god of misfortune is something my imagination is quite amazed with. Her color pallet is paler than the rest of the cast really feeding into her characters misfortune like shes been deprived of sunlight and joy. Tho being the god of misfortune she is by far the funnest and most excitable character in the show. When going in to this i had expected her to be either very evil or very depressed. I was glad she was more or less evil and good and not depressed at all really. The biggest source of parody comedy in the series comes from her and her cosplay styled side skits.
The art for this show is great all the characters are pretty well designed and unique. The backgrounds aren't lacking and the overall feel of the shows visual experience is great. Nothing significant stands out in this show except for each of the bizarre cast members. The audio is very organic to the show, it feels really well used and appropriately used at all time. The voice cast is also a fantastic choice for each and every character thus far. I cant say i feel anyone is out of place when it comes to voice to face. The Opening and Ending Themes are actually two of my favorite theme songs to listen too in the last year or two, both delightfully charming in there own way while various characters and cosplays roll across the screen providing some sort of fan service for those interested in watching.
Tho the show uses some Ecchi elements its not as strong as other shows, there isn't any groping or cliche stuff like that. Its more just jokes about flat chests and S&M. Some of the jokes are standard but others are kept above par and original. The show escalates from a chase to a battle very quickly and makes the game of cat and mouse more enjoyable to watch as the the tides turn and bend in anyone favor.
I really enjoy this show and i think that if you watch 1 episode and like it your gonna be pleased you keep watching. Then again this kind of humor is not everyone's favorite and some people will know right away if they like it or not. I think its worth a fair shot if you enjoy comedy anime. This is Getting a 10 for me for being outstanding to me, i really have no complaints thus far with the series and if there is i will edit this to reflect that. I am highly optimistic that the most i will be editing is a error in my typing tho. read more

The comedy is well-made and it is surprisingly well-balanced with the drama element of the storyline which is quite rare. Not every story like these one can balance those two elements well. Parodies are well executed.
About the CHARACTERS
There interesting and really inspiring character development for the female protagonist is something to look forward to. And, she might not admit it but it all thanks to the other main character. These two main characters probably have one of the most unique, inspiring, and fun relationship. The titular main character is given to be the most interesting; not only is she hilarious but can really give serious advices.
About the ENJOYMENT
It’s the best with parodies next to Gintama which is the God of parodies. It definitely made me love “parodies” even more. It’s not just all comedy and funny moments but the story definitely has substance. And like some of my favorite series with very few episodes; it’s extremely irritating that it only have 12 episodes despite how amazing the stories is.

The protagonist of the series is Ichiko, a super fortunate girl and a selfish unreasonable bitch. Opposed to her is an at least half-insane goddess of poverty Momiji who is on a hopeless mission to drain the former out of her excess fortune power using an arsenal of comical devices. The main duo forms a sweet love-hate-relationship, and so begins a seemingly neverending catfight. But people aren't always invulnerable even in comedy, so the above description isn't all there is to Ichiko. Most of the time everything's carefree fun, but when something precious is threatened the atmosphere turns different. Under such circumstances even Ichiko will drop her bitch-mode and show commendable effort for the sake of things most important for her, even showing sincere reliance and trust on others. All in order to stay in her comfort zone, but it might actually be what finally brings her closer to other people.
So there are times when the comedic veil is moved aside to reveal sad sides about Ichiko's character underneath, and the same two sides of the same coin-approach goes for many of the other characters as well. A penny-pincher high school student can be humorously economical, but it's all done for a serious reason and is a harsh reality to live in. A girl delinquent is hilariously manly with a poorly hidden girly side, but that character is the result of a heavier history. Even the seemingly crazy goddess of poverty seems to think more about things than she lets out. Binbougami's serious characterization is a very straightforward extension of the obvious first impressions, the same things we laugh at one moment are given emotional weight with small yet effective input. When simple yet touching drama is paired with plot developments that are convenient enough to resolve issues quickly after tension is set up, Binbougami almost completely, but not completely, avoids embarrassing overextension into drama territory and keeps transitions between moods beneficial for both sides.
Aside from the most important characters already mentioned, the cast basically forms two divisions; a group of blatant joke characters who are always hyper, weird and/or perverted, and a group of comparatively normal people, basically just one family, who seem to be there to keep a more consistent, solid foundation on reality. The difference between the two is obvious, but the normal people will part in jokes when it's necessary. Likewise, even the perverts are capable of rare moments of compassion and support. The support characters' roles in drama are all clear, they don't really put anything into motion on their own and cause confrontations, but their jokes and other actions influence the characters who are on the spotlight. The comedic chain reaction is a whole different world, the characters' exaggerated quirks will constantly find fresh ways to collide and develop ridiculously over-the-top exchanges and scenarios. There's a bit more repetition with some character-specific gags than I would have liked, but each instance is at least a little bit varied.
Anyway, the characters are put through some hardship, but it's rewarded with a happy ending, positive character development and some more comedy. But not all character development is always visible. Ichiko in particular remains in their previous comedic roles where her defining qualities from back then are still vastly exaggerated. But even if small, the consistency and progress is still visible, and considering how extreme she is, even small developments are significant. But it must be said that when portrayed dramatically combative, Ichiko's rejecting behavior is sometimes used cheaply unrealistically for creating a serious mood, leading to a couple of instances of annoying drama that breaks the flow of comedy inappropriately. It's still overall roughly coherent and the resolutions to even those few less believable bits of drama are satisfying.
But while the series has character development and emotional moments, it's more of a seasoning than the main dish. They increase believability and attachment to characters, but they alone are so simple and unoriginal they would not really keep me interested. And while it's mostly a matter of preference, I found the comedy good. Its type could only described coarse, people are doing stupid things, beating each other up mentally and physically, screaming at each other and molesting each other, a lot of the comedy is slapstick and mild sexual humor. While the gags aren't really that smart, they open up in ways that are at least slightly intellectually stimulating like any good comedy is. There are a lot of clever ways to play with our expectations, either ones set-up with previous characterization, the scene itself or wider prejudices and assumptions. There's variety in jokes despite relying on the same characteristics, a character's role can be that of a pervert but it's still possible to be surprising about it time after time and for character chemistries to find new forms. A lot of the jokes even set up the background information and thematic frame for the more serious content of the episode or the ones after that. Everything mentioned in this paragraph unfolds amusingly, the setting itself is simple but stupid enough to just work, and within it crazy situations humorously surely spiral out of control gag after gag until the whole scene blows up climatically.
There are lots of anime references in Binbougami which might sound alarming considering the usual quality of such jokes in anime, but they are surprisingly well implemented here. The trick is that the references are essentially just one part of a joke that already works on its own it's just that the visual gag kind of happens to be referencing a popular title like a cherry on top. For example, a makeshift disguise is actually the facial structure of a well-known post-apocalyptic hero, overanalyzing enemy's unusual behavior leads to a train of thought very similar to the events of a certain supernatural crime thriller or a slapstick act of violence is replaced with something with uncanny resemblance to the explosive demise of the muscular henchman of a proud alien prince. Sometimes it's so unexpected yet fitting it increases the effect of the joke hundredfold. The references lean towards mainstream series, notably many are from WSJ, but that's not the extent either. There are also some completely pointless references like an exception for the rule, and the first episodes lean awkwardly much towards Dragonball-references, but that's just nitpicking in this case. Even if it's not perfect, after putting up with crap like Haiyore! Nyaruko-san where characters actually stop whatever they are doing just to point out every single powerless reference that don't even have anything to support them, the way this anime handles it might as well be the best ever.
The great thing about the art is that it's really well supportive of the sometimes very quick shifts back and forth between moods. While having fun, the scenery is bright and the screen teems with visual gags, slapstick action, anime spoofs, small humorous details and so on, and when someone gets irked as part of a comedy act it's obvious that it's not going to lead directly to anything serious. But when painful emotions are brought up for real, more importantly than the change in palette towards darker tones, the characters themselves look visibly worried. Things such as the look in their eyes and the range of their facial expressions completely change. Obviously that's a very typical thing to do with drama overall, but here those visual cues and resulting changes of tone are really well timed and make it easy to toggle between moods.
The character designs are pleasantly distinct and not overly gimmicky in any way, the eyes of the two lead characters are particularly alluring. Ichiko has her assets and that is capitalized in the art a number of times, but it's still her attitude, personality and face that define the impression her character design gives. The other character designs are very good as well, Momiji looks just right for the counterforce of Ichiko in all her flat glory and her array of costumes suit her. There are some insignificant stereotype-characters are a bit bland looking and not very well used, but everyone else's design is exaggerated in a good way to provide some laughs even on their own. The soundtrack has a great tempo that is always on the same wavelength with what's happening on the screen, it accompanies not just the pace of bombastic action, but changes of tune are timed with punchlines. Of course, the emotional and serious scenes have suitable tracks, and they are just spot-on. Voice acting roles are really good, there's great range and they play a really big part in making everything even funnier or more touching than it already would have been.
Overall, a lot of the factors I praised in this review sound innately "cheap", and admittedly much of it could be considered that. But more importantly, Binbougami ga! manages be tasteful and endearing despite that. Who said cheap can't be good as long as it acknowledges it, staying simple and sincere? Overall Binbougami ga! is a really, really enjoyable series that takes barely any wrongs steps. Amongst all the comedy, the series brings up very traditional but always topical messages about the relationship between friendship, family, wealth and happiness. Not everything is always a laughing matter, but when you have worried sick about it, the feeling of laughter afterwards is even more liberating. read more

I've been watching anime for a good solid 15 years and have watched a lot of different series and genres. Most of the time when a new comedy series starts up its funny for the first or second episode but gradually loses its edge and returns to its pigeon hole. Though its too early to tell if this will suffer the same fate as series past I think its safe to assume it will still carry the great comedy throughout its run. read more

Binbougami ga! is a very silly series. In fact, it’s a really stupid series–sometimes in the positive ha-ha kind of stupid, and others times in bad sense of the word. In general it’s one of those shows that allows to simply relax and enjoy it for what it is and not vehemently critique it, although there are scenes that stand out as mediocre or subpar.
The dramatic aspects are by the far the shows weak-point, as it’s fairly mediocre all the way through. It’s a predictable action-comedy from the get-go, and pretty forgettable. Initially the execution alone is done well enough to make it enjoyable, but it’s doesn’t take long for the formulaic nature of the plot to override that. More often than not the the comedy makes up for all this, so it’s an enjoyable series for the most part
Much of the comedy relies on the specific quirks of each character. This allows for plenty of quality comedy for quite a while, but towards the end of the series they all start to lose their charm, and everything starts to seem tedious. Ichiko and Momiji are relatively more complex, but every other character literally has their quirk define them; every time Ranmaru shows up, the scene pokes fun at her tomboy demeanor, as with Bobby’s pervertism, or Momoo’s masochism.
Thankfully, the actual ending of the series (episode 11-13) breaks out of the formula, and gives us a satisfying conclusion. read more

An interesting premise, where the God of Misfortune is trying to take away Sakura's ability to take the fortune/ happiness energy of others which has resulted in her abnormally high amount of fortune, to solve the energy imbalance of the world.
It's a comedy but mixes well with some drama and some touching moments. I liked the comedy and the parody references to other anime & manga.
Sakura may seem like the typical popular girl who's clever, has all the boy's attention and rich, but she has some tsundere qualities. Momiji, the God of Misfortune stood out for me with her crazy antics.
Overall, i really enjoyed the first episode. I found it quite funny & i love how the plot is all WTF and crazy. Looks promising and great fun. :) read more

Go way! Go way!
Saa you! Make my day!
Sonna muzukashii koto ka?
Saaaa, now "Binbougami ga" has ended, so how do I rate this 13 episode anime?
Story: Good 7.
Ok, so this anime's genre which is compose of comedy, parody and supernatural are a good combinations, the story completely revolves around the parody which is good. I really like the way where the Momiji tries but fails to get Ichiko's good luck energy to put balance in the world, it kind reminds me of a certain situation in the "Road Runner's show" (Beep, Beep) where Wile E. Coyote would always try to make the speedy Road Runner (Beep,Beep) his meal. But compare to that old cartoon this one has that thing where Momiji would almost succeed but failed again to get Ichiko's good luck energy where it gives that certain unpredictability.
Art: Fair 6.
This would have been much better if there were some ecchi in it like panty shots and nipple flashes, but Ichiko's fanservice will suffice. Momiji on the other hand should have sported the same school uniform of that of Ichiko, she would have look nice in it, but to distinguish her from the others, she should don her school uniform in an unpressed and messy manner and she would have looked a bit hotter if she'll be wearing shoes ( in a pair, not one shoe in one foot) without socks. As for Ranmaru, I don't like her boyish attire, she should have sported the same school uniform, but to give her that delinquent look, she'll have to wear her shirt completely unbuttoned still showing her bandage like brassier of some kind and she can maintain the hat and keep that wooden sandal thingy that serves as her footwear. But, when she was given make over, I really find her cute, too bad she went back to wearing the old boy's school uniform.
I simply like the opening theme,titled "Make my day" by Piko.
Dakara one way, two way, three way, four way
Go way! Go way! Saa you! Make my day!
sonna muzukashii koto ka?
one way, two way, three way, four way! No way! No way!
mou goodbye! bad day!
omou mama ni kowashiteyuke
dareka no reeru no ue kara
nozoita shiawase tte nan daro?
kore de ii no?
ai toka koi toka yume toka kikiakita shi
taikutsu ne doko he yukou?
Are you ready?
dakara one way, two way, three way, four way
Go way! Go way! saa you! Make my day!
sonna muzukashii koto ka?
one way, two way, three way, four way No way! No way!
mou goodbye! bad day!
omou mama ni
nani mo kamo ga ureshikutte
mukai kaze wa doko kara fuku no?
ganjigarame uzumaku sadame wo
Btw, I can't believe that Piko is a dude with a girly voice.
Characters: Good 7.
Ok, so for Ichiko I kind like her character where she is this bitchy girl whose world turned upside down when Momiji came into her life. I really like Momiji's role of that of a bungling deity who can't seem to do anything right, but what I really like is her transformation when she was given a good scrubbing and rinsing when she attempted to do something but failed to Ichiko. As for Kieta, I would really like it if there is that Keita X Ranmaru arc since the 2 look good being together....that is if Ranmaru would be in a proper girl's school uniform. Boobi and Moomo may just be in a supporting role, but boy, do they provide the laughs. There is of course this Nadeshiko Adenokouji, seems to be more of a cameo than anything else.
Enjoyment and overall: Good 7.
It really enjoying, in fact in the forums there are rumors of a season 2 brewing, I guess we'll find out soon. But, you know to see such comedy like this is something that one would be glued on, co'z of the surprise that this anime provides, so overall, if there will be a season 2.... well, why not? If this anime was able to gives us the laughs and the joy of an unusual relationship between Momiji, Ichiko and Ranmaru, co'z the kind of relationship they have is that of a friendenemy type than a usual friendship kind of thingy. I do hope if there will be a season 2, that Keita would have an arc with Ranmaru. read more

Story - 8
Binbougami story is simple. Beside from whats written on the synopsis, it also deals with everyday life of Sakura Ichiko. While it seems to be simple, that didnt appear to be as simple as it is for the MC of this show is a loner. To put it simply, the story of Binbougami is more like the story of a very fortunate lonely girl learn to interact with other people while being keep in watch by a God of Misfortune.
It is also to take note the amount of parody this anime has. The parody on this anime mostly use as a comedy but unlike any other parody, the parody here match the atmosphere of the events like using Dragonball parody for introducing the characters. It is also very interesting that the 2 most memorable anime Spirited Away and Death Note used as well for the parody.
Songs - 8
Catchy. Well the songs on Binbougami has its own merits. Like its opening song, its very catchy and thanks to that catchy song, it helps to improve the atmosphere of the anime.
The ending song of the other hand shows the hate/love relationship between Ichiko and Momiji. Which sounds cute. Yeah it sounds cute case of the beat of the song and even the translation of the lyrics makes it cute as well.
Character - 7
The best way to describe this part is this resemble Seto no Hanayome characters. Yes it totally resemble Seto no Hanayome when it comes to the characters. Even the character development resembles Seto no Hanayome.
In case those who read this review havent seen Seto no Hanayome, its a romcom anime that has characters as one of its strong factor.
Overall - 8
This never failed to make me laugh so I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for comedy anime.
Hope that this opinion of mine is helpful. read more

Whats there not to like?
It is like a game of cat and mouse. The cat tries to catch the mouse but fails in an amusing way.
It may not be a classical but I believe it can rival Tom&Jerry since the whole idea of the series is to make you laugh.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy this anime and laugh untill you burst into tears and eventually dying of too much amusement. read more

Ok, so this story is basically about a girl who is called Sakura who has too much luck and a god of misfortune and their overall adventures. I gotta say, when i first heard about this i thought hell is this going to be some kid flick and like most of you who will read this review who are guys, i know yall checked simply because of the picture and it looked appealing, well i am here to verify to you my friends, the picture does say a thousand words because, this anime is PURE CHAOS. I aint seen so much drama and madness since nisemonogatari and i fell in love with this anime almost as much as i did that one. So i say unto you my friends, if you like parodies and chaos and if you liked nisemonogatari, watch this or at least give it a chance.
For a comedy, I loved how they incorporated the parodiies while getting the core parts of the story development across. It wasnt pure randomness with no meaning but it directed what it wanted to have come across. Most of the comedy comes from allusions as stated earlier. Rarely does an episode go by that will not make you laugh or cry to the point that you might have acid reflux. That being said, if you are not into the sheer madness and randomness and utter unrealistic fantasies, this anime will try to direct to you as well as it does attempt after the first few episodes around 3 episodes or so to direct you with a real story.
One point I HAVE TO BRING ACROSS is the voice acting. OH MY GOD, the way how Kana Hanazawa and Yumi Uchiyama as Ichiko and Momiji coordinate, you really get the feling that they are sisters having a conversation at home or friends that have known each other for years. They if for anything made this anime a success because my God they are awesome and make you truly appreciate the essence of doing something that you love simply because you love doing it.
Sunrise studios has been the love of my life for years, especially after Geass, oh C.C how i miss you so. Their art and animation is most of the time so damn clean and efficient that you feel like such a boss watching their beautiful quality. You will be able to tell that the graphics workers had alot of fun as will you watching this anime as they did working on it as the art is godlike, especially the opening and the ending.
Lastly for the music, my God did i love the opening and the ending. They truly caught the randomness of the anime and I am thankful for them doing it so well. I sang eccentricly as would a child after sucking a lollipop for hours.
All in all, I give binbougami ga an 8.75/10 and I strongly recommend for all. It is lovely and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
OTAKU FOR LIFE. cheers. read more

The story and premises aren't quite original thenselves but the lack of new mangas/anime with this kind of setting on the actual anime and manga escene it's like water on the desert. Ok... there is SOME fan-service but this kind of things are ussual on the bussiness.
Finally, what in this manga really excelsis is on the characters: Momiji (the Binbougami) and Sakura (the main character) are both perfect caricatures of what they represent and that, combined with all the twists they show makes this a perfectly light-hearted comedy in which you know what you'll get: lots of laughs without any other thing diluted in.
I'm not gonna dig too much on the future development of the anime (I've read the manga) but there won't be a lot of romance or drama: just humour so don't wait for that.
Just to make a comparison: it remids me Ranma 1/2 in terms of humour. read more
Feb 2, 2013
The only bad aspects I can mention are how they went too far to make the main character unlikable. That resulted in a lot of time wasted on character development, and even so she remains, arguably, one of the worst characters in the show. Not such a big deal since she is always interacting with great characters.
It was entertaining from the start to the end, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys comedies.

As far as I have seen of the first epi this could be well be a really nice anime too watch this summer. The story is also interesting at least better then some of the other's I've seen for this summer.
Well the story is about this INCREDIBLE lucky girl apparently that has too much luck for her own good so the god of misfortune is sent to get a good load of luck from her and make her like any of us unlucky on the world. At first glance the main charachter seems to be the normal type of populair girl with big breasts and nice charachte but in reality she's a *****.
The god of misfortune finds this out the hard way and u can already guess what happens next, Yes a shitload of funny scenes and weird ass moments. Also I must note that I really like the fact that theyre making fun of different anime's just like they do in gintama. The show also has a few drama moments but are quickly changed from depressing/cry/emo moments too Lol wtf funny moments
Overall I think this just might be one of the most enjoyable and funny anime's that summer has brought us. Seeing as I have watched half of them and only 4 of them were actually good so far and this is one of those 4
