Early this year, there was a little series about a girl named Fushimi Inari, a curious and generous kami named Uka-no-mitama (also known as Inari), and the girl's wish to change - to love - and be loved.It was called "Inari Kon Kon Koi Iroha", a title very loosely rendered as "Inari, Transform - the Alphabet of Love" (my own render, not official), which was a bit of a long title. Funimation in their simulcast shortened it to "Inari Kon Kon", but subtitled it into English and made the videos accessible via streaming on their website.
So I watched it.
But as someone who likes hearing about spins on folklore, this was a series that I was immediately attached to: not only is it, like Eccentric Family in 2013, a series that examines humans and kami and yokai, but in this case it examines the beloved kami of Inari and re-imagines key kami like Amaterasu as well. To what end, other than a story? Who knows. When this was coming out, just like with Kill la Kill, there were some shakeups with the secrecy bills in Japanese politics, as well as the far-right nationalistic contingent in Japan; right now, there has been a snap election called, with very little change aside from the notably interesting fact that the Japan Communism Party now has enough seats in the Diet to submit bills. Is Japan reaching back to its old stories and re-imagining where they fit? Who knows.
Under the title "Inari Kon Kon", this is available via Funimation here: http://www.funimation.com/
