Ichiko Sakura lives life on easy mode. Blessed with good fortune, she has everything she has ever wanted, including beauty, intelligence, and wealth. Momiji Binboda is a goddess of poverty. In stark contrast to Ichiko, she is cursed with misfortune, such as a perpetual cast on her arm, a flat chest, and a box under a bridge for a home.

Their lives collide when Momiji lives up to her title and delivers some unfortunate news to Ichiko: her large amount of luck is due to her subconsciously draining the luck from those around her! Momiji has been tasked with stealing back Ichiko's fortune before she leaves everyone without enough luck to even survive. But Ichiko, with the help of the wandering monk Bobby Statice, manages to fight off the poverty goddess. This defeat forces the goddess to enlist reinforcements in the form of Kumagai, her teddy bear familiar, and the masochistic dog god, Momoo Inugami.

Insanity ensues as Ichiko's quiet life is replaced with daily battles for her fortune. To survive the chaos, Ichiko will need all the luck she can get in Binbougami ga!!

This anime is such an overlooked gem in my opinion. It's legitimately one of the funniest comedy series I've ever seen, every episode getting multiple genuine laughs out of me. And besides that, it executed this whilst balancing it with a good story and very unique premise.

As a comedy series, the humour is the most vital component and Binbougami ga excels here. From visual jokes, to shock humour, to absurdism and a LOT of references. All of the jokes hit home for me and if you're a proper anime fan, recognizing all the crazy references is a really fun experience too. As my best ...

What would you do if you had all the luck in the world, but only because you'd been leeching the luck and happiness off of the people around you? Well, you'd probably feel at least a little guilty, but you can't help it, right? If there's no way to fix the problem then there's nothing you can do.
This is the way our protagonist Ichiko Sakura approaches her situation, but there is an easy fix for her problem - she just won't take it because she's incredibly selfish. Ichiko herself was one of the main problems I had with the show as it tried desperately to ...

This anime has nice visuals and surprisingly weak story that ruins it. It has plenty of references to other anime, plenty of attempts at fanservice, and plenty of attempts at humor. Unfortunately, most of those attempts fail.

Detailed breakdown below:

Story: 3/10.
While the primse isn't horrible, the story eventually forget about the premise completely (and heroine's powers), and large number of references to other anime do not improve it. The issue with references is that in this case they are not fun, feel out of place and the anime being referenced usually is very popular. Supposedly humorous attempts usually fall flat, and the story attempts to shift ...
