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.

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. This anime is not trying to achieve any new grounds and actually does not attempt at anything other than simplistic beauty, tries read more

Stories with spirits and humans from literature are always a fascinating tale. The concept of blending between the lines of fiction and reality can be an intellectual story to tell. Often times, fantasy literature brings elements of suspense, horror, and power struggles into stories involving clashes between spirits and humans. However, stories can sometimes be just simple and straightforward. Take Gingitsune for example. It’s a series that defines itself as a fantasy slice of life that is simplistic but yet charming, sensible, and alluring.

Gingitsune is an anime series based off of the manga of the same name written by Sayori Ochiai. The setting takes place read more

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.

Both involves girl and deity relationship.

Both were set in a shire.

Both have the same supernatural genre.


The girl to deity relationship in one anime has a romance vibe, while the other was more of an elder to younger kind of thing.

The deity in one anime has a tsundere attitude, while the deity in the other anime is a bit lazy.

The girl in one anime is sweet, kind and shy, while in the other anime is also sweet, kind but stupid.
