Can a piece of fabric worn as part of a kimono really be a waifu of the week? Well, if that fabric has become a tsukumogami and can take on human form, then yes, yes she can!
It’s been a while coming, especially as Kiriha spent a fair portion of the series in a shrunken form after using up most of her spiritual power, but now that she’s back to normal, we can all rejoice in the rambunctious delight that is Kiriha from Tsugumomo. One of my favourite things about Kiriha is that she does whatever she wants. She is afraid of no one. Local god or not, she’s going to hand you a beating. However, if you’re lucky enough to get on her good side, she will protect you to the ends of the Earth… as long as you’re willing to wash her back… and let’s be honest here, that’s not much of a price to pay.
Tsugumomo has been a fun series with some odd moments and some truly amazing moments. I really didn’t expect to enjoy myself this much, but I’m glad that the second season came out prompting me to watch the first one. The cast is all a lot of fun and I knew that Kiriha would find her way onto this list right from the first episode. Of course, I also saw the potential in Kokuyou as well… ah, Kokuyou… Anyhow, here’s a collection of images of Kiriha to show you just what I mean. She also has an incredible range of facial expressions.
If you’ve not seen Tsugumomo before then now is the time to jump on board as the second season is currently running. That’s right, there will be twenty-four episodes to enjoy and Kiriha does some sort of damage to Kazuya’s genitals in almost all of them… This series is hilarious and there’s even one episode that was creepy as hell and another that was scary. Whatever you want, Tsugumomo will probably have it covered. Watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
