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. It is Tenko Kugen, a fox deity who can take the shape of a man or woman at will. 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.

The premise of the story is that two brothers who are the children of the former water priestess whom their family has been involved with for many years are being targeted by other evil spirits and specters. In order to prevent anything from happening, a fox spirit named Kuugen takes on read more

Recommendations

both involve youkai's, and have a similar feeling, except natsume yuujinchou is not as lighthearted as oinari sama.
There are some similar concepts, like old Japanese deity figures and characters living among human beings. However, unlike Gingitsune, the deity in Wagaya no Oinari-sama can be seen by anyone, so instead, the deity has chosen to live and take part in a human lifestyle -- running stores, being part of organisations and similar situations. In Gingitsune, only those who are a part of a certain family line can see the deities inhabiting the various temples around the country.

Bot shows are basically based around young children/teenagers and the relationship they form with the deity/semi-deity characters that make up the other half of the cast, and this is the main strength of both shows.
