Never trust a creepy priest who claims to see positive/negative energy. He’ll ask for more than free food and shelter.
Judging from all the craziness last time, episode two doesn’t cease with any of the adrenalin rush upstarted by this killer intent to balance good and bad luck. Sensible words cannot describe all that went on.
I mean, I can say that I found it funny, amusing and entertaining and be like all bonkers over how the action cement the general humorous nature and overreactions. It’s nothing new, though, that the source of humor is in the form of breast size and bloomers and all those shenanigans used by just about every other anime in existence. Needless to say, it didn’t bother me all too much, so here’s to hoping that many others feel the same. (If you’re new to this, welcome and welcome.)
The key ingredient this time around is that priest. Say what you will about Japanese gods or religion to a non-controversial degree, but he ain’t a priest. His fake Japanese and his silly excuse for finding the source of Ichiko’s good fortunes make him a sleaze, but in a funny way. If not for him, how else would Ichiko and Momiji battle it out? Surely, each girl has her army, but they only resulted in further humor necessary to keep this series relevant.
I’m liking the delivery, even if hearing Hanazawa Kana’s screaming voice isn’t what I’m used to. As for Uchiyama Yumi, she is impressing me every time Momiji goes into a role shift. Gosh, gotta bring back Dragon Ball Z, huh?
But really, Binbougami ga! is nuts. It’s over-the-top insane comedy with the right touch of sanity. I was pretty starved of quality comedy of late and Sunrise may have come to the rescue again. I do have my share of concerns when quality inevitably starts to dip but I’ll spare my crestfallen speculations and celebrate a successful second episode by hoping for a chance to purchase two new mouse pads.
GO Rating: 3.5/5
Ichiko’s closet is a great place to train your misfortunes.
