Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha First Impressions


Be prepared for human selfishness, love, Amateratsu! (<3), Kon (not from Tokyo Ravens). Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha is another shinto-related anime this season, and it’s one of my favorite seinen RomComs manga at the moment.

Before I begin with the impressions, this is like what? The third series with Shinto elements in it? We got Noragami, and Gingitsune already. I’m sure there was another one but I can’t remember the name. I don’t know if the industry just decided to subconsciously promote Shinto through anime, not that I mind.

I’m a sucker for visuals, I think everyone to some extension gives in to anime scenarios. We kind of know this after Non Non Biyori 「のんのんびより」 aired that we were able to appreciate the countryside of Japan through animation–be aware however that not everything in anime reflects Japan in real life; if it was I’m sure each student council in every school would be trying to start some sort of civil war.

Anyway, going back to the impressions. The start of the episode was gorgeously presented with a beautiful song playing. Our protagonist, Inari is running late to school, as she heads to school she sees a fox about to fall to the river. The little fox, later known as Kon, is saved from falling to the river.

Uka-sama ❤ The best otaku deity in Shinto? Yes, she is! Uka is best, anyone who says otherwise is a heretic and must be purge :c

Oh yea, how come characters looking around 21+ always hits on school girls? That sort of thing NEVER fails to appear. Cute underage girl is lost? “Let’s hit on her” I wonder if it’s a thing in Japan :\

I love how everything is placed around the store, the little details in the store is so awesome.

I think that guy is gonna end up with a Never Nude syndrome... just saying.

And now, what makes Uka-sama awesome 😀 Dem bishies!

Well now… by the way, do you know how useful is to have those foxes transform into PS4 or whatever… I want one of those 😦

Nice try, bro. I beg to differ one the whole “what counts is on the inside” bullcrap they pull. Don’t mind me, just had my share of hard times recently.

And this is part of the plot. Keep a wary lookout for what’s about to come.

I think Kon from Tokyo Ravens beats this Kon….[HorribleSubs] Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.15_[2014.01.16_12.30.09]

How does she keeps her mind “pure” from all those ero-games 😀 that’s what I’m thinking.

So in this episode where many eventful things have happened. Inari’s selfish has gotten her in trouble, Uka-sama is playing a dangerous game with her divinity and many things have been put into motion. Inari’s brother bad mood isn’t unjustified at the end, he’s in a bad mood but it isn’t because of her sister.

Give the series a try, I shall support Uka-sama to the very end :c My opinion about the series may be biased as I’m a fan of the manga so be sure to check other blogs for impressions.
