Binbougami Ga! is a manga adaptation originally written by Yoshiaki Sukeno.

So this anime is tagged as Parody, though I’m not really sure what it is a parody of. There are a lot of really extreme characters. There are also a lot of references to other animes which are hilarious. A lot to dragonball, to many to others as well, including death note, which is shown below because it was brilliantly done. This anime is happy to make jokes out of itself. Binbou Gami Ga 1A basic summary of this anime is the fri-enemy-ship between a girl who has too much fortune and is a bit of a bitch, and a god of misfortune who has been sent to fix the imbalance. Ichiko is a girl blessed with having too much fortune. To many she seems untouchable and an angel. In reality she’s a arrogant bitch who loves getting her own way and doesn’t really care about other people. Though I do love her, I call her a bitch affectionately in this one. I love animes about girls who are not frail and this anime is it. All three of the female leads are not afraid to throw a punch or say something bluntly.

Ichiko had a bad childhood, a rich heiress whose parents had no time for her and her only real carer was her butler. This with the fact a lot of her friends used her as a child meant she struggles to make friends and only really uses people. So when Momoji crashes into her life, things being to get interesting.

Binbou Gami Ga 4

Momoji is a lazy god of misfortune. Not death. Misfortune. Her job to take the masses of fortune which Ichiko has a redistribute it to people who need it. Except who would want to go near that big ass needle? Not Ichiko, she avoids Momoji’s attempted to steal her fortune easily, occasionally letting it happen to safe people. During the rare moments when she is feeling sympathetic to other people. Not that she ever admits it. Ichiko and Momoji’s relationship is a strange one. They are pretty much best friends. Kind of. They insult each other and beat each other up but their is definitely a fondness there. A fondness between two bitches but it exists. Something which only grows as a third girl is added. The tomboy Rindou. Who was brought up pretty much as a boy by her father.Binbou Gami Ga 2

Momoji’s arrival means that Ichiko has to deal with a lot of madness which comes with her including a perverted black monk, and a m-type inugami. Plus a new friend at show shows up.Theses guys are only really in the show for comedy relieve but their appearances are well done and often the only real ecchi type scenes in the show. Despite the fansercive heavy opening and closing. Along with two classmates with their own problems, we watch as the two girls cause choas and try to defeat each other. While watching Ichiko grow slightly into a more well rounded person. She still has a sharp tongue but she slowly begins to understand other people due to accidents with Momoji’s plans.

I found this series awesome and I fully recommend it to anyone who like comedy programs! Gold.

Accel World Review

Accel World is based of a manga adaptation by Reki Kawahara.

Right. Um. I wanted to like this. I had read lots of good reviews about how it was a unique anime with new characters. I was beyond disappointed. I tried to watch it three times. The first time was when it had just come out. I had assumed that I didn’t get past the first two episodes due to real life reasons. However recently I tried watching it again. Twice. First time I wasn’t impressed but went back because it was on loads of recommendations. But no. I did not enjoy this anime at all.

The concept is a cool one. A game which takes place in a half reality, half virtual place where people are trying to be the king. The idea of avatars and levelling up. Its all really cool and I agree that is at least original. Most virtual world animes take place in the game itself. But this was an interesting spin to the genre.

So why didn’t I like it? Why, when this anime had a good concept to work on. Simple answer. The characters. They were so hollow and 2D. The main guy is called Haruyuki Arito. He is a short fat high school boy whose avatar is even a pig. He, of course, hates himself because of his size and the fact everyone around him looks normal. Seriously, I get that we are meant to fall for him because he’s the underdog and its like ‘he’s ugly but he still gets girls throwing themselves at him’.

The girls who are just. Blerh. Boring. Kuroyukihime, the cool beautiful beauty who is the school idol. Who is on the run from people in the game because she defeated a whole bunch of powerful people and almost get the both of the killed in real life as well. She has lots of deep conversations. I watched 4 episodes. They were far too deep for where we were in the show. Also she is meant to be superpower and despite the fact she has only been talking to him for like 5 minutes, gets jealous when he cables with his best friend. Who she asked him to cable to get information on her. She also tries martyrs herself. So no. Manipulative bitch here, who admits to betraying her friends in the game before. Why should Haru trust her? Because he’s pretty and pays him a bit of attention. Seriously?.

The best friend,Chiyuri Kurashima, who gets super possessive and jealous over him because he is her longest friend. She doesn’t want him going out with Hime because… um? She doesn’t like her and as his best friend, she can say that. Chiyuri has a boyfriend by the way. But still pins Haru down on her bed to tell him that she doesn’t want things to change between them and wants to be friends together. Get all tearful when he promises they will always be friends as well. Pathetic little girl.

So no. I don’t like this anime. Stone.
