Now here is an anime that went under the radar, unfortunately so, because it is actually a very enjoyable watch. The story begins with a young woman by the name of Sakura Ichiko, who just so happens to have un-natural levels of good fortune, so much so that it is upsetting the balance of fortune, and she is unintentionally sucking all the good fortune from people around her.
This brings me to the second character, the antagonist of the series, a god of misfortune called Binbada Momiji, she has been sent to earth to restore the balance of fortune, by forcibly withdrawing Sakura’s fortune. With a giant needle of all things. And so begins the fight to the death between Sakura and Binbada!
Being only 12 episodes, this is a perfect weekend show, the dedicated can get through it in one sitting. I definitely recommend giving it a shot, it was one of the ones that surprised me, I went into it with low expectations and even the first episode had me hooked, it is actually pretty damn good.
In summary, a very impressive and well done comedy, I enjoyed it greatly.
