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: The anime will probably take a few weeks to rev into top gear, just like how the manga takes a while before it really gets good. Hanazawa Kana stars as Ichiko, and Uchiyama Yumi as Momiji. I've got some high hopes for the series, being a fan of the manga and all. Concerns I've got are the standard shounen fare - fillers that are dreadfully boring, and just badly paced story telling. The staff kind of concerns me too. A lot of them, like the director, animation director and whatnots like that...don't seem to have any big titles under them. The PV...though it might be because of the medium, looks...a bit off. I'll wait until I see an episode before I really judge the art though.
