When the police discover Laon naked and hungry in the street, they aren't quite sure what to make of the odd little boy. How could they know that he is actually a nine-tailed fox... or at least he would be if he hadn't lost his tails in a bet? Now Laon is on a crusade to recover his missing appendages, if other spiritual forces don't find them first!

What can I say about this series. When I first started reading this series I thought it was amazing. It had interesting characters as well as theme, and made me laugh out loud on several occasions. The story was still doing great in my opinion, until the last 2 volumes of the manga (5 &6). The story took a turn and all of a sudden became really rushed like the author wanted to get done with the series ASAP. Random characters came out of no where, and became like important parts of the story, but the author gave little to no background on them. They read more

Laon is an interesting manga. The characters are pretty solid. The story starts out pretty good as well, though it tends to flounder at the end. Honestly, I enjoyed this manga a lot until the last volume. It kind of killed the slow build up and steady plot development. If they had just stretched it out another volume or two I really believe this could have been a great manga. It had some unexpected events happen at the end, though the final ending was a bit unsatisfying. On a sidenote, I find the artwork neat and unique, which was a big part of why I read more

Manga: The Tiny Fox with the Star
Both are about a young fox that travels to the human world and fight to prove their worth to their creator/society. Laon has more adult themes compared to the fox with the star.

Manga: Gakuen Sousei Nekoten!
While the plot of these two series is very different, I feel that the atmosphere they create is similar. In both there is a mesh of ‘cute’ and almost ‘haunting’ imagery. In fact, Laon features bold line-work and high-contrast art similar to Iwahara’s work. Both involve a bit of magic and otherworldly creatures, fast-pacing, plenty of fun action scenes, and a plot that escalates into a final-boss battle on a “fate of the world” scale. With both series under 10 volumes they make great short reads.
