Wagaya no Oinari-sama is over
Anime Relations: Wagaya no Oinari-sama.
Another show under the belt which leaves me with the same feelings of completion and wistfulness after everything is over. Oinari-sama truly is a good slice-of-life/comedy/action/ everything in a hot pot kind of show which is sadly underrated. It's a show about a lot of girls based around one guy that doesn't come off like another harem cliche. Partly this is because all the girls are funny and unique in their own way, and benefit from a truly excellent voice cast. Hearing Yukana as Kuu-chan truly is a sublime experience. The show also has the recognition for me of featuring a kid, Tohru, who not only realistically acts like a kid, but because of this comes off as an incredibly likable little brother. As with all works based on a continuing series the show doesn't have the most satisfying conclusion. I would of like for Mubyou to show up again and for Tama-chan to have received more screen time, but the show wrapped everything up as best it could in one of those cyclical endings that I really enjoy. Hopefully there will be a second season at some point.
