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.
Themes: aliens, parody
Objectionable content: very significant – extreme amounts of both violence, blood and sexual innuendo/ecchi.
Cthulu has entered anime! Okay not cthulu itself but the cthulu mythos from lovecraft’s novels at least have.
Basically the old gods of the cthulu mythos in lovecrafts novels are actually aliens, some good, some bad. The good ones seem to work for the cthulu corporation to keep peace in the universe, so when some bad aliens come to earth with is the entertainment capital of the universe to steal its doujinshi and capture humans for their slave trade. The nyarlotepian nyarko comes in to save them, them being a boy named mahiro yasaka. Little does he know that the only reason she saved him really is she likes him and that by liking him his life is about to be turned inside out!
Honestly, this anime has a lot of excess. Excess violence and excess ecchi. The entire thing is basically storied around nyarko trying to get into mahiro’s pants, and many points that they pull do not make sense. The only thing it has for it, is decent comedy, and very descriptive fight scenes, not many of them either. Simply put I did not think much of it.
