Winter 2014 – Week 6 Anime Review

noragami-06-kofuku-binbougami-kokki-fan-attack-stormsThis week: why the self-indulgent nature of anime and manga is mitigated in Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha, how the art style of KILL la KILL exhibits importance and extravagance, curious about the ending for Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!
