Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.
A really gimmicky start, wouldn’t you agree? I kind of had to figure out where they were going with this. I have never read the manga or even seen the PV. I just watched the first episode and that was that. Not bad for a first episode though.
I’m overall pleased with the artwork. The characters look great, the surroundings look great and it’s quite detailed. This is by no means a budget production. I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on Inari-chan. Her charming clumsiness instantly won me over to her side.
I see some serious potential in this story. It reminds a bit of Uchouten Kazoku, another one of those underrated jewels of anime. I can only hope that the next few episodes will be as good as the first, at the very least.
Why wouldn’t you watch this? I know I will. I suppose it may not be for everyone. There are people out there that prefer action and/or horror. I like a bit of everything every now and again. This will definitely keep me amused for the next couple of months. Watch the first episode, you might like it.
Plot Summary: Inari Fushimi is a middle school girl who’s never had a requited love, since she’s a shy, clumsy and not very bright. One day, she witnesses her crush Kouji giving a letter to her classmate Akemi. Shocked and saddened, Inari rushes to a shrine, where the goddess Uka-no-Mitama-no-Kami appears to her. As thanks for saving a fox pup, as well as out of pity for her plight, the goddess grants Inari the power to shape-shift.
