Binbougami ga! episode 02
Oh my god. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san really lives on within this anime. The similarities are mind-blowing. I can’t believe they already raped the hell out of Dragon Ball Z and Rosario + Vampire by showing us those messed up parodies. It makes you wonder what they’re going to mess up next.
Basically, this episode was just an introduction of characters, really. We already know Momiji-chan and Ichika-chan, but we were also introduced to some perverted priest and a whole lot of supernatural stuffed animals, summoned when Ichika learned how to use her “fortune”. I guess this is going to be thirteen whole episodes where Ichika tries to get rid of Momiji by using her supernatural abilities and vice versa. Kind of made me think about the Rise of the Titans, a movie where human beings rise up to fight against the gods. Good thing that this anime is a gag-like comedy, and not some overdramatic movie.
Anyway, Ichika’s everyday life will never be the same again. She has a god of misfortune on her ass that wants to kill her, a perverted priest that probably wants to rape her and now she also has a house full of supernatural beings that don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. It’s nice that she was able to summon those creatures, but it’s pretty pointless if she doesn’t know how to get rid of them afterwards. Unless she actually wants to live with them. Let’s face it; she’s a girl and a lot of girls are nuts about stuffed animals (say whatever you want, but it’s true!).
No doubt that next week’s episode will also contain a lot of comedy, messed up action and a scene or two where other great anime get viciously raped in the form of messed up parodies. Still, at least we don’t have to watch thirteen episodes where we constantly see the same handicapped Pokémon, unlike with Haiyore! Nyaruko-san. Binbougami ga! has potential, so I will be looking forward to the rest.
