Here comes one of my most awaited summer anime (this was supposed to be in my summer watchlist here but due to the lack of a usable promo image it didn’t make its way to the list). Now my complain is this was aired earlier today but until now, at the time of writing there’s still no fansub release of this new show. For me that’s a bit unusual because the subbers usually take less than 12 hours to make it happen yet I haven’t heard of any group picking up this series as their summer project.
According to various sources (My Anime List, Anime News Network, you name it) this anime is about a girl named Ichiko Sakura who is gifted with the power to absorb “happiness power” around her. However with great power comes the great responsibility, because the “happiness” power aren’t free but absorbed at the expense of other people’s happiness. Here is where the Poverty God (or ‘Goddess’) plays her role to get by Ichiko’s side and tries to restore the balance.
This is an anime adaptation of a manga, or to be precise, (as usual) a manga I have yet to read. That means I don’t know much about the story inside and I couldn’t find the article about it in Wikipedia either but that’s OK because I see myself more of an anime fan than a manga fan after all. I just hope that the manga would not span too long because I have the similar sentiment against long-running manga, as I have with long running animu like narutah, blitch and one piss.
This series seems to be sporting parody references (as shown in the snapshot above) and this is exactly what I need for any anime title! Not though if this was only in anime or also in the manga but what important now is I want to watch this as soon as possible as there’s very little ‘information’ I could extract from the RAW alone. I hope by the time wake up next morning the fansub release is already available and I can’t wait to grab awesome snapshots because I know this show offers plenty of them!
