Synopsis

Born with a silver spoon, Ichiko Sakura is overflowing with good fortune. She is wealthy, beautiful, athletic, and smart. Not only that, but everyone around her does whatever they can to ensure that her perfect life is not disturbed in any way. Talk about luck! Unfortunately for everyone else, it turns out she is actually sponging up all of the good fortune and leaving them high and dry!

On the opposite end of the spectrum lies Momiji, who is a god of poverty. She has been sent to take Ichiko down a peg or two in order to restore balance to the world, and will attempt to use everything else at her disposal to suck out all of that fortune.

Binbougami Ga! is a battle between fortune and misfortune. A battle that will employ verbal jabs, dirty tricks, and odd-ball bets. Will the human with all the luck in the world or the deity with nothing but misfortune come out on top?

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

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

This is a quick review. Binbougami ga! is simple but great that's it, is as simple as that.

[b][u]Story[/u][/b]
I have seen the concept of a Shinigami or a god of something coming for the MC, because or they want to kill him or want to help the MC, Binbougami is just like that but very well presented, it's a good story but this is comedy and i tend not to take much serious the story on comedy.

[b][u]Art & Animation[/u][/b]
The animation was great, the landscape was very good, the characters were very well detailed and were beautiful to see and it was colorful.
