Sakura Ichiko is a 16-year-old girl who leads a charmed life and is blessed with beauty, brains, wealth, and health. She has an abundance of "happiness energy", which can make people happy, but at the cost of absorbing all the "happiness energy" from her surroundings.

She has caused the energy balance of the world to become unbalanced and because of this, she becomes the target of a poverty god named Momiji. Momiji's goal is to remove Ichiko’s power of absorbing other people’s happiness energy and to return all the energy she has taken to its rightful place. But Ichiko won't take this lying down!

nakama of GIRLS

Yeah, that's right. this manga portray a group of girls as friends, REAL FRIENDS not just props and part of harem of a guy. this manga is not centered on some unfortunate guy, but on two girls who are the epitome of friends. their relationships are real, and i had never read a manga with this kind of girl relationship. i'm just so amazed by this mangaka.

and this manga is just so dang funny. it parodied a lot of stuff, and it is just uber funny seeing them in super macho form when they are embarrassed or trying to get away from something (instead of the usual chibi form). and let me tell you the dedication of this mangaka in not showing any panties - he replace it with loads of boobs and raunchy jokes lol.

the plot is awesome. not mind bending or anything, but easy to follow and get excited for, the plot travels along very smoothly. the climax feels very intense, and the ending made me drop a tear or two. the mangaka is just skillful in eliciting emotions from the readers at the right place and the right time.

so yeah, please read this manga! you will be greatly entertained.

Great entertaining comedy!

I can't give a complete review since it isn't a complete series but I really enjoy reading Binbougami so...

I love the heroine. Ichiko is spoilt at first but as events occur she changes to be nicer. This might seem typical at first but unlike other similar characters, she still has that lovable bitch in her. I just love the relationships between the characters and I mean everyone! From Suwano who like appears only at certain times to Momiji! The crew is like one big family of likable characters. Plus, I feel genuine happiness for the characters when good things happen to them

A ridiculous comedy plot that works! I haven't seen this kind yet (where someone contains too much happiness energy, they have to pay for it). It is hilarious and seriously enjoyable. A freaking page turner. There wasn't a single boring arc even if it was cliche.

I love the art. It's simple and cute (Yes, I'm a girl that's why). I like how the God items are drawn. Nice art that suits the plot and comedy!

After reading the comments below saying how good it was, I decided to give the manga a shot. Surprisingly, what they said was true! The characters are funny and the story is unique with great art. I recommend this to everyone.

Pretty good art. The humor is also good, with many funny references. The story and characters are on the other hand quite standard. If you want something different, then perhaps this isn't it, but if you want a good nice laugh then this is quite good comparing to others.

I really like the style of this manga. The poverty god's character design is so awesome. This manga has a lot of laughs, but it doesn't really have a strong "arc" structure, it's just broken up into little stories. But it's hilarious and the art is just amazing.

Classic group comedy

This manga drawn my atention since long ago, but I never knew why until recently.

As long as more characters joined the cast I realized it feels exactly like the comedy classics Ranma 1/2 and Urusei Yatsura. Not that the plots are the same but in the way that things get funnier when every crazy character enters the fry. The characters grow their comedic value when they are together, just like in those works.

If you liked Rumiko Takahashi's works in the 80-90s and were disappointed with her more recent mangas Binbougami ga! is exactly what you need. Just give it a try untli volumes 3-4.

I have not found a decent comedy manga in a very long time. This one lifts my spirits. It has a very decent story, a constant bicker between a human and a god (of some sort). This manga is definately not your average one.

Classic and maybe time for an anime?

I agree with kuraixdesu at first I was like "should I buy this manga.." eventually I did and it turned out to be a CLASSIC! Very original and when the classic scenes from many other mangas such as Death Note and Hokuto no Ken come out that's where you can't stop laughing HAHA. Maybe give it a couple more volumes to come out and then I can see an anime for this one and if it does become an anime I expect very high for it! HAHA

A very underhyped, unique manga

I've been reading mangas since 2007 and have read over a 100 mangas. That said, I regret not reading this earlier and the fact that it took me so long to find it speaks volumes about how underhyped this is. Now, coming to the manga review, this is a masterpiece of a manga. Sukeno sensei handles gag, ecchi, drama and battle scenes here with ease. I especially loved the characters and their progressions throughout the series. The gag and parody scenes are wonderfully done as well. Would definitely recommend this hilarious manga to everyone.

Okay, so I picked this up when it only had so few chapters out and now that I've read all of it, I will make my review. So, when I first picked this up, it annoyed me how... annoying the female characters were in the beginning? I thought, "Will they be like this the entire time?" The mangaka proved me wrong. The character development, especially on the protagonist, was great and they both really grew on me.

Story is pretty funny, the plot was 'meh, it'll do, but still interesting enough for me to give it a 9. I mean, who wouldn't want huge boobs of glory with crapton of luck it generated.

Art was great! It was simple, cute, and enjoyable. Certain items were drawn in my favor, too. And all of the "weapons"/mystical creatures were cute/cool-looking.
