A God of Misfortune and Poverty cracks down on an overly-abundant person who drains "Happiness Energy" from others. From there, both parties end up clashing with hilarious results.


Good Luck Girl! (貧乏神が!Binbō-gami ga! lit. "God of Poverty!") is an anime adaptation of the manga of the same name; a comedy with supernatural themes and a heavy emphasis on parody originally created by Yoshiaki Sukeno. The anime was produced by Sunrise and directed by Yoichi Fujita and Tomoyuki Kawamura as the chief director. Binbō-gami ga! began airing in Japan on July 4, 2012.


FUNimation began a simulcast on July 14, 2012. The series was released on DVD and Blu-Ray combo on November 19, 2013.


Ichiko Sakura is an incredibly smart, athletic, wealthy, beautiful and otherwise talented high school girl, so much that the Japanese kami are concerned. Apparently, the reason Ichiko is so talented and lucky is because she unknowingly sucks out the "happiness energy" of everyone around her, giving herself extra luck at the expense of others. Momiji, a Japanese god of poverty and misfortune, is sent to suck out some of this energy in order to restore the balance of karma in the world, but not even Momiji's god status can save her from Ichiko's abundance of luck as she is thwarted time and time again in her efforts.
