Good Luck Girl

Good Luck Girl [rating=4]

At the expense of the people and things around her, Sakura has absorbed so much “happiness energy” that she has caused an energy imbalance in the world. In order to return balance to the world, the Poverty God, Momiji, sets out to take away Sakura’s ability to absorb this energy. Will Momiji be able to put a stop to Sakura’s absorbing abilities, or will the God succumb to her happiness?

This was a good anime to watch for a relaxing few days. It was nice and relaxing nothing really tense inside of it. It was humourous, and had a bit of fan service thrown in. Good Luck Girl is mainly focused around humour. However, it isn’t without actual emotion, we get sucked in by the humor and we start caring for these characters.

The plot was well laid out, it followed through to each episode. We dance between humour and emotion. It isn’t too long of a series; thirteen episodes long. The time seems to fly by when you’re having fun.

The characters are weird and quirky, slightly perverted at times but it’s kept within taste just about. It makes it all seem unique, nothing like any anime I’ve ever seen before that is for sure.  I’d give it full marks for the characters and the way they develop.

The animation is crisp, clear and colorful. Blended with bright happy colours to accent the tone of the anime it really goes well, so all in all full marks for it complementing the anime well.

The fighting inside the anime was peppered throughout, overdone, and with a miriad of odd weapons it still complemented the theme of the anime. We get to see alright fight scenes, nothing too tense, mostly just hilarious.

The bonus features on the disc were a bit of a let down; two episodes with commentary, trailers for the anime and opening and closing themes textless.

All in all I’m going to give this Four out of Five stars

Good Luck Girl comes to DVD on the 16th of March 2015
