Synopsis

The Shirakiin house's daughter, Shirakiin Ririchiyo, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named "Ayakashi Kan." In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit.

This anime 'Inu Boku SS' seems to point to 'Dog and me secret service', but, it isn't the literal meaning of course, that would be a bit boring unless you had some super cool dogs! anyway.

The story is based on a girl named Ririchiyo who lacks social skills and can never say what she really thinks. The Fox Spirit, Miketsukami Soushi is her secret service agent and pledges his life to protect her. In the beginning you feel like there is an underlying story behind his commitment or a reason for his attitude towards his job.

Even though she is projected, I feel that the main read more

There is something very unfortunate about a show that chooses to confirm certain traits and elements of the story that the viewer sometimes wanted kept to the power of the imagination.

One of the most important things to get out the way when watching this show: The place and role of the main characters, in this case the male and female leads, Miketsukami Soushi and Shirakiin Ririchiyo. Miketsukami is a 22 year old incarnation of the Kyuubi, the fox spirit, and Ririchiyo is a 15 year old high school student. Keeping in mind that this is a clear 7 year difference in age, one cannot read more

A teenage girl struggling with her interpersonal skills; a loyal man struggling with his intrapersonal skills. Inu x Boku SS tells of the tale involving these two troubled persons. Over time, it is inevitable that one will change depending on his/her surroundings. The influences that come from peers and others are undoubtedly strong. To be able to thrive in such environments, one must be able to filter these influences and only be changed by those which they feel will benefit them. In the end, it is always others that do the shaping; one cannot merely wish to be transformed and have it happen. Whether these read more

Inu x Boku SS came has something a bit excentric and maybe controverse with the MC's relationship, but I m glad, really glad I came to watch the show.

Story and the Art are you average stuff, by average I dont mean bad, it is what I m accostumated to see in most anime nowadays, and of course that depends how what you choose to watch. So it can be relative by a huge margin.
But I digress, both were interesting enough, the story has its rythm, slowly expanding, developing and introducing new characters, and the art supported the anime very well. The OP is beautiful, read more

Recommendations

Both have:
- A Highschool girl that moves to the house of the main lead.
- A main lead that is a kitsune (fox spirit) and had a darker personality in the past.
- Main lead serves the girl even though she has powers.
- Other youkai join them in the house as friends.
- Slow Romance and comedy.
In his beautiful animation, in his style, both are romantic comedy with dramatic touches, have exciting moments, in his relationship between players or because Takumi and Soushi are very similar, and because the two players have strong character and they are good at everything.

The main female character has demon blood running through her reigns. Both Anime deal with being different from normal people and the designs are intricate.
They are very similar -- a story of a demon serving a child from a rich family. Perhaps a bit darker with less humor, but the core is the same.
Beyond the superficial silliness lies a dark past. The elements of magic, which are hereditary and involve transformations, play second fiddle to the relationships between the characters. There is romance in the air. All the male characters are bishounen.
Ririchiyo and Taiga (the main female characters) are petite tsundere from wealthy families, with deeper reasons to behave the way they do, instead of just your typical tsundere traits for moe purposes. Bonus! Both wear thigh-highs.

Miketsukami and Ryuuji are both gentle male characters, with talents at "domestic" chores, and enjoy taking care of the main female characters.
