I should probably do an actual review on this but to be honest I'm probably not going to.

Elegant Yokai Apartment Life Episode 9: Here’s a Set Up

Review: So it is a new school year and Inaba is now a second year. Other than that, nothing has really changed and we're still just kind of following him around occasionally observing things that might be interesting. Though, this episode does rather heavily and clumsily point out that something is up with the new … Continue reading Elegant Yokai Apartment Life Episode 9: Here’s a Set Up
