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.

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.

Alright, so here we have another wacky comedy/parody from Sunrise. Is it any good? Let's find out.
This is a spoiler free review (not that there's that much to spoil anyway, lol).
Story? What story?
Well… Ok, it does have a basic premise. It's about a girl who has too much going for her in her life and therefore she has too much good fortune that comes at the expense of others for some reason. As a result, the God of misfortune has come down to balance things out with her powers.
If you ask me, this is a ridiculous, thin and not so interesting premise (even for a silly comedy). By its own logic, this issue could've been resolved in a matter of two minutes, not 13 episodes. And they just keep coming up with silly excuses for why it hasn't been resolved yet.
Now, having said that, the premise is actually relevant (in one way or another) to most of the events taking place in the series. And is therefore, used properly. Unlike Gintama, which forgot part of its own premise at some point (Odd jobs? What's that??). So even though it's a stupid premise at least it stays true to it.
The story itself basically consists of… well mainly just character interactions between the two leads and other characters that are introduced along the way. It also deals with some interesting themes, but certainly not themes that are uncommon in anime and they're pretty light too. It doesn't have much of a storyline either, it's pretty episodic for the most part.
Also the pacing is pretty fast and messy. Apparently, Sunrise had time constraints and so they just burned through as much of the source material as possible. Either that or the source material itself is fast and messy. I don't know.
The story concludes in what seems like an anime original ending (I'm not sure, I haven't read the manga). It seemed pretty contrived and rushed, but I admit that it wasn't all that bad for a last minute conflict. Unfortunately though, a lot of things were left open.
Nothing much in terms of story, but it's just a comedy so I won't let it impact the score as much as it normally would.
The characters personalities mostly consist of fast talking hot chicks who speak in foul language. This series basically took the idea of having crazy and violent female characters from Gintama (which is my least favorite aspect of it, tbh), added quite a bit of fan service and also threw in some anime references/parodies.
I personally don't like dirty girls cursing and fighting each other that much, but that's just my personal taste. So objectively, I will give them credit for at least being different from the usual non threatening moe girls we are all too familiar with in school comedies.
I'll also give the characters credit for having backdrops that are quite rich and well handled for such a short series (and a comedy). It really felt like some of the backstories actually mattered and it wasn't just there for the record. Not to mention the interactions themselves that bounce off of each other quite nicely (especially when more characters are introduced, aside from the two leads).
The main character even develops a little at some point, but it's rushed and not too significant anyway.
And yeah, there's another issue with the characters. Due to the pacing being very fast, some episodes are as follows: they introduce a new character - make fun of him/her for most of the duration- and then in the same episode we're also supposed to care about the character and/or feel sorry for him/her. So the mood swings come and go way too fast and the flow of it doesn't feel natural. Sure, at times Gintama does this in a matter of one episode as well, but it did it a lot more eloquently and in an anti-cliché manner. And unfortunately this series doesn't stay away from clichés as much, so it's not as engaging for that reason too. And some of the stand alone episodes felt like they should've been stretched out in to two..
Generally speaking, the humor is quite good and a tad different from the usual anime humor, but don't expect it to be as clever, funny or unpredictable as it is in Gintama, even though it tries to be (lots of boob jokes too).. But the good part is that it's a lot less random, because it's almost entirely based on character interaction. The anime references do come out of nowhere sometimes and at other times they're placed quite well. Sort of a mixed bag in that respect.
The characters designs are pretty generic. Certainly nothing we haven't seen a million times before. Though some of the clothes designs look pretty cool/sexy.
The artwork is generally pretty colorful and bright. I don't think it's too detailed for the most part. And the animation seems basic for today's standards. It's certainly not the fluid kind of animation. And it also doesn't have any decent action to make up for that.
So it's pretty basic in terms of visuals, with the exception of its decent directing.
The opening is an ok pop song. I didn't like it much and it had Engrish, but it wasn't bad or anything. The ending is also a pop song that sounds better than the opening or at least it sounds a little less generic. Even though it has some Engrish as well.
The sound effects are ok, nothing out of the ordinary and the soundrack was fine too and it fit the mood swings ok..
I don't know Japanese so it's hard to tell, but I think the voice acting is a little over the top at times. But overall it was handled pretty well, I guess. It's probably not the best, but still quite good.
I did enjoy it… I guess. But I felt like I could've enjoyed it a lot more if it was at least paced better.
It's nothing much in the long run and it could've been a little better, but it's still a decent time waster and certainly above average in comedy.
Thanks for reading. And I hope you enjoyed this review, even if you happened to disagree.

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

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

The whole point of this anime was to have a story revolving a ungrateful, greedy, and selfish girl that is learning the meaning of sharing, compassion, and friendship.
It does all that while delivering hilarious anime reference and creating funny situations. This has got to be one of the funniest animes i have ever seen and i enjoyed every minute of it!
Like i said, this anime was created to give you great laughs and it does it flawlessly! If you feel like you need a change of pace in what you watch then this anime is perfect.
Nice normal plot with great laughs! 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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
