A 15-second television commercial is started airing on Wednesday for this summer's anime adaptation of Yoshiaki Sukeno's Binbō-gami ga! supernatural comedy manga. The commercial reveals that the series will premiere on July 4, and features Piko's opening theme song "Make My Day!"
Yoichi Fujita (Gintama) is directing the series at Sunrise with Kento Shimoyama (Bleach) handling series composition. Kenji Tanabe (Naruto Shippuden the Movie: Bonds) is designing the characters.
The story revolves around Ichiko Sakura, a girl whose blissful life comes from her bountiful "happiness energy" — gained by sapping that energy from other people. To restore the balance, the Binbō-gami (Poverty God) Momiji Binbada attempts to eliminate her. Sunrise registered the domain "binbogamiga.net" in February.
