Binbougami ga! episode 09
Seriously, what the hell did I just watch? The story just got a whole lot weirder, and that’s saying something when it’s about Binbougami ga. I still can’t believe that they actually used Luffy’s (from One Piece) signature ability, which would be his ability to stretch his body, seeing as he’s made of rubber, during a silly little tennis game between Momiji and Ichiko.
The episode was weird because of two major reasons. Reason number one would have to be the fact that things continued as though nothing had happened. Hell, it seemed as though Ichiko was getting used to Momiji’s presence. I just think that’s weird. Both of them seem to be fighting from time to time, yet most of the time they seem like pretty good friends.
Reason number two would have to be that new goddess of misfortune. That’s right, a new one showed up to help Momiji in her quest to take away Ichiko’s good fortune. Naturally, she failed over and over again, but it’s the thought that counts. New characters keep making their appearance, so I’m actually wondering how many more will appear throughout the final few episodes? It’s not like it’s a bad thing, but there’s a limit to how much you can stuff into a show.
It’s probably a given that we can expect more visits from gods and goddesses. Momiji’s boss is getting a bit impatient, especially after another one of her lackeys got sent back with her tail between her legs. Surely, it’s only a matter of time before she shows up to do the job personally? I for one hope so, as I have been looking forward to that moment for some time now. I wouldn’t mind seeing Ichiko’s reaction when she finds out that she’s the one that sent Momiji out after her. Besides, that should introduce a whole new world of possibilities, where comedy is practically endless.
