Binbogami ga! is one of the new summer 2012 anime series that is very popular in Anime Vice. When I tried it out of Sonata's recommendation, I fell in love with the series. Sonata and I started the wiki project on July 19, 2012, and the anime project ended on September 28, 2012 with a total of 13 episode summaries.

We had an awesome Binbogami Ga! discussion thread, and then, Tom Pinchuk started a series of Watch and Learn articles on it.

Important Wiki Info Pages: Binbogami Ga! wiki project and wiki list

Synopsis

For those who are new to the anime series, here's a synopsis written by DocHaus:

Sakura Ichiko 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, the 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 becomes thwarted time and time again.

Teammates and Their Roles

I already introduced my teammates in the wiki project blog, so I just going to list them.

Sonata: He's my teammate who specializes in images and powers for the characters.
Daniel Newton: He helps the team by formatting the episode pages with navigator boxes, synopsis, and misc sections.
DocHaus: He's more of a manga specialist, and he works on the main anime series page.
FoxxFireArt: He's there for support when the team needed Japanese names for the characters.

Independent Wiki Editors: Buhssuht, Wraith, and BigHeart711

In addition to Daniel's formatting contribution, Sonata and the gang added references while I added plot summaries. In the table, I will list Tom Pinchuk's Watch and Learn Articles as well. All synopsis are from Funimation.
