Good Luck Girl Anime Review

Published April 8, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I was in the mood to watch a funny anime and I was recommended the anime Binbougami Gai also called Good Luck Girl! This anime was definitely what I was looking for in a funny anime.

Here is the synopsis: 
“At the expense of the people and things around her, Sakura has absorbed so much “happiness energy” that she has caused an energy imbalance in the world. In order to return balance to the world, the Poverty God, Momiji, sets out to take away Sakura’s ability to absorb this energy. Will Momiji be able to put a stop to Sakura’s absorbing abilities, or will the God succumb to her happiness?”

This show has so many different anime references so try and count how many you can find. 
I know that when many people think of a funny anime they are hoping to get at least a few chuckles out of it but actually I was laughing out loud. ALOT! 
The main character Ichiko Sakura while at times can be very sweet she can actually be a little devil. 
She is constantly causing havoc and can be a bit selfish but there are several times during the series that she becomes self less and worried about others. 
Then there is the poverty God Momiji Binboda. 
Now she was hilarious and constantly caused a great amount of grief for Ichiko. She was always trying to find a way to get on Ichiko’s nerves or make fun of her. Although during the series there were moments when she seemed to really care about Ichiko and actually gave her some good advice. 
Now I did watch this show dubbed and it was dubbed by Funimation but they did a really good job. The voices matched the characters and it was great to watch the action of the show without trying to read the subtitles. 
Now there is a little bit of bad language and a few scenes that can be kind of sketchy so if you aren’t one for profanity or fan service then this is not the show for you. But if you don’t mind this kind thing then by all means watch the show and enjoy.
So overall I give this show a 8/10. This show was really funny and the serious parts of the show actually were good when I needed a break from the comedy. Like always comment down below what you thought of this review or show and I will comment back.

      • I finished watching it last night. It was a very enjoyable show. Hopefully they make a season two, if not I will try to track down the manga which I understand has finished.

      • Yes it is an enjoyable show and I also like the serious moments in the show which was a good break from the comedy. I’m also hoping for a season 2 but I would also like to read the manga.
