Nihon Review's Shinmaru writes: "Mean-spirited characters when cast in the right light can be tremendously funny. They have clear wants and desires, and they go after them with unparalleled gusto, damn the consequences and social etiquette. Binbougami ga! has an excellent setup primed to take full advantage of this: Sakura Ichiko wants to keep the pampered life her luck enables, and Momiji wants to forcefully rip this existence from Ichiko’s hands. Their rivalry — and the way other characters intersect their battles — comprises the best parts of the series. It’s just too bad that when the show isn’t being funny, it’s a clumsy, ham-fisted drama."
