Summary: Pretty, busty rich girl Sakura Ichiko has been blessed with an inordinate amount of good fortune, so much so that she’s actually sucking the fortune from those around her. To correct that massive imbalance, Momiji, a God of Misfortune, has come to Earth to “treat” Sakura – only Sakura isn’t so willing to cooperate. As part of an ongoing effort to remedy the problem, Momiji starts living with Sakura. (Source: ANN)
Sunrise surprised the most of us with their comedy adaptation ‘Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou’ which turned out to be quite a big success. Now with that over, it makes way for the new comedy series ‘Binbou-gami ga!’ which lives up to its genre. As much as the main character looks like an older and more refined version of Nyaruko, her personality’s definitely not of resemblance. As you’d all expect, a comedy does what it does but it can either be a hit or a miss. Binbou is definitely leaning towards a successful comedy due to how whacky and creative it is.
Surprisingly, I ended up liking the serious side to episode 1 as well. I’m not sure if Binbou will be continuing this mix of drama and comedy. Even if it was a one-shot, it’s needless to say that Binbou-gami ga will definitely be a hilarious show that could ultimately transfigure into anything it wishes to become. The possibilities are endless and I’m looking forward to seeing what other gags they throw at us. So overall, if you’re looking for a whacky, in-your-face, over exaggerated, what-the-fuck kind of comedy then Binbou-gami ga is the type of show you should be watching already!
