Episode 6 of Bunny Girl Senpai Might Have The Most Wholesome Twist Ever

I’ve been watching back through Bunny Girl Senpai and just re-finished Tomoe Koga’s arc. I’d forgotten how good it was. Both in the way it played out but I’d really forgotten the way it ended!

Sharp sounds of clashing metal ring out beneath one of the many tall, oil burning street lamps that intermittently light Thaleniel’s dark, southern warehouse district. Bathed in orange-tinted light, two figures, clearly engaged in combat, move and circle each other. They trade slashes, thrusts, blocks, and parries as their swords meet again and again. Eventually, one of the combatants gains an…
