Bimbogami ga!

bimbogami gaGenres:  comedy, supernatural, ecchi, parody, school

Themes: luck, misfortune, gods

Objectionable content: significant – mature themes, moderate comedy violence and a few episodes with partial nudity.

 

Dirty misfortune gods, masochistic, dogs and a whole lot of good and bad fortune, wait what?

Ichiko sakura has it all, rich family, high intelligence and even a drop dead body. However she does not realize that this is due to two thing, she has an insanely large amount of good fortune, and she steals other peoples good fortune. She finds this out when the gods of misfortune send one of their own to steal her fortune and give it to others, unfortunately for them sakura is not fond of this idea and fight back against the misfortune god sent at her known as momiji.

This anime itself is mainly a comedy with lots of comedic violence between sakura and momiji, it does however take upon itself to show many serious points when momiji teaches sakura what exactly she is doing to those around her as she subconsciously tries to help sakura learn to use her fortune for good.

It also has many support characters including the masochistic dog god momoo inugami, the monk bobby, and sakura’s tomboyish friend ranmaru rindo, couple this with the almost ridiculous amount of parodies they do (seriously I lost count on how many times they did a parody of something) and you have a very good anime that knows its own limits only when things get serious.

All in all I really do like this anime and I definitely recommend it for both the storyline and the comedy.

Mayo Chiki

Genre’s: School, Comedy, Romance

Themes: Harem, Butler’s

Questionable content: moderate,  fan-service

Mayo chiki witch roughly translates to The Stray Butler and Myself the Chicken is a comedy and school manga with an interesting premise.  The main character Kinjirou Sakamachi has gynophobia (which is the fear of women) due to his extremely violent sister and his professional wrestler mother. The richest and most popular girl in school is Kanade Suzutsuki who has a butler with her at all times named Subaru Konoe. Then kinjirou discovers the secret the two of them have, that kanade’s butler Subaru is actually a girl they force him to keep it a secret and at the same time discover his, his gynophobia. From there they decide to help him overcome his fear while all the while watching him to make sure he keeps their secret just that, a secret.

If having to keep someone’s identity a secret was not bad enough, the three of them get into many kinds of trouble because of kanade’s family’s prestige. Add to this the fact that Subaru end up liking him and things get very bad for him on a fairly regular basis as he tries to cover for Subaru and kanade at loss of what little public standing and respect he has.

With this said. The anime mayo chiki is not a bad one. The story line is fairly solid and has plenty comical high jinx to keep you entertained and just as much serious story to keep it moving along. One just has to watch out for the fact that some point of the anime have content some might find objectionable or inappropriate for some audiences

All in all I give it a quite nice rating of 7.3/10
