Series Summary from MangaUpdates:
Sakura Ichiko is a 16-year-old girl who leads a charmed life and is blessed with beauty, brains, and health. She has an abundance of “Happiness Energy”, which can make people happy, but at the cost of absorbing all the “Happiness Energy” from her surroundings. She has caused the energy balance of the world to become unbalanced and because of this, she becomes the target of a Poverty God named Momiji. Momiji's goal is to remove Ichiko’s power of absorbing other people’s Happiness Energy and to return all the energy she has taken to its rightful place. 
Kenn's Comment: An awesome series that deserves every bit of the praise that it gets. It's a really great series, with gags and references very reminiscent of Gintama. Character development is great in this one too. All the characters are a bit broken in their own ways, and go about making up for their lackings in, often, hilarious ways. The comedy is always there, but it never cuts into the drama like it does all too often in Hayate no Gotoku!, where comedy often interrupts serious scenes to loosen the atmosphere. In this one, drama is played out before the comedy comes in, or has a little comic quip stuck in, maintaining the drama, but throwing in a little chuckle here and there.

The art is great. Expressions are quite varied, and when Sukeno does a reference/parody scene, they're always spot on.

All in all, a great, great read. Action isn't a huge part of the series, comedy is almost always there, and the drama always really well done. Great series. Really looking forward to the anime in the Spring. Go go!
