Sakura was a rich and pretty girl. she was blessed with a huge amount of good fortune, so much that she was actually sucking the fortune from those around her. to correct the massive imbalance, Momiji, the God of Poverty, came to set things right by starting to live to Sakura. however, Sakura wasn't willing to cooperate.
the absurdity felt lame at first glance, but like Kore wa Zombie Desuka (2011), Binbougami ga (2012) tended to capture one's good side as the episodes progressed. the series was absolutely hilarious, with plenty of references from other anime. though a simple character, Sakura was inevitably heartwarming and adorable to watch. everything was put together beautifully, yielding some surprisingly unpredictable results. the plot though simple, was completely unique, especially with its opposing characters.
