Gintaro is a fox spirit that has been protecting the small Inari temple since the Edo era. Saeki Makoto's family possesses the power to see the gods' agent, but the ability is limited to one living relative at a time. When Makoto's mother passed away while she was still young, Makoto inherited the ability as the sole remaining family member. With the help of fox spirit's power, Makoto and Gintaro help the people of their community, in spite of their many differences.

Gingitsune is one of those shows that feels "alive" in every respect. There's honestly no better way to describe it. From its general beauty to its inner world of provocatively enriching emotions, this show always has something to mesmerize you with.

Story: Keep in mind that this is a Slice of Life show, so the thing is that this is a story much more than it is an underlying plot. This is far from a bad thing; in all honesty, I find this show to be a very refreshing take on the Fantasy genre. For example, the rule that makes only one bloodline member possess "the read more

This is why I like animes, after getting thoroughly disappointed by watching something with excellent animation and music fall way beyond mediocrity due to lack of originality, unnecessary fan-service and a crappy sense of humor; getting angry at yet another butchering of a video game adaption into a utterly stinking pile misdirection and lack of effort; and laughing at a purely unrealistic and shameless attempt at seinen through yet again short skirt wearing superhuman schoolgirls, I get to experience a show like Gingitsune.

Both anime revolves around a girl who lives in a shrine and has the power to see the inari's that live in the shrine, both are daily life events and are cute and funny at times.
Natsume Yuujinchou and Gingitsune gives off a supernatural and slice of life feeling in a story filled with serene atmosphere.

The main characters from both series possesses the ability to see what others cannot. What they see though is a supernatural being whom they have an odd relationship with. However, they often are able to collaborate together to serve their communities and bring peace to their worlds.

There is lighthearted comedy, meaningful dialogues, and fun interactions between various characters.
