Synopsis

The Mizuchi bloodline has long been hunted by Yokai, or monsters. Toru and Noboru Takagami are descendents of this bloodline, and under their grandmother's discretion, are given a secret weapon to combat these monsters.

The mischievous deity is accompanied by a shrine maiden, Ko, who will both live with the Takagami brothers at their house. Life just got complicated.

I always find it odd that so many shows get labelled as something other than what they are. Even stranger is the fact that almost everyone will view the series in a given way, often missing a prominent feature of the show.

Wagaya no Oinarisama (or Our Home's Fox Deity), is just such a series as, whilst very clearly being a supernatural/fantasy tale, the strong slice of life tone of the story is often overlooked or completely ignored.

Based on a series of light novels by Shibamura Jin (with illustrations by Hoden Eizo), the series was first adapted for manga by Shofu Suiren, and was originally released read more

Wagaya no Oinari-sama is a show I was very excited about seeing this year. And for the most part it didn’t let me down. It follows the fox spirit theme that seems to be so popular lately but has a number of interesting new ideas that make it fresh and interesting.

Recommendations

both involve youkai's, and have a similar feeling, except natsume yuujinchou is not as lighthearted as oinari sama.
It's simple to see that fantasy elements are part of both series even if they differ by their presentation.

In their modern world, there are spirits present in both series with supernatural abilities. The main protagonist gets involved with these spirits and entities that causes mischief among the community. At the same time, they possesses power of their own. (shape-shifting)

Both series takes place in a school life setting that ensures drama, comedy, and fantasy. There is a stronger presence of romance in Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. However, Wagaya no Oinari-sama possesses credible comedy that holds the show together with its characters + dialogues.

Opening Theme

"KI-ZU-NA ~Haruka Naru Mono e (KI-ZU-NA 〜遥かなる者へ)" by Hitomisora (Hitomi Yoshida & Sora Izumikawa)
