Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox revolves around a kumiho, a nine-tailed fox that can assume different forms including human. Kumiho are familiar figures in Korean folk tales, and they are usually depicted as magical creatures that take female form to lure and prey on humans. This time, however, our protagonist is a young, kind-hearted fox with only five tails, instead of nine.

After losing her family to fox hunters, five-tailed Yobi lives in the forest with some shipwrecked aliens, far away from the humans. When one of her alien friends gets captured by a villager, Yobi has no choice but to adventure into the human world to rescue him. At the village, Yobi meets many humans, including Geum Yee who studies at a school for maladjusted children. Interested in Geum Yee, Yobi joins the students and revels in the fun of human life, but both a fox hunter and a mysterious shadow man are on her trail.

For being my second anime every (first being vampire knight) I didn't have much to go off of but now that i've continued watching for years I hold this one as my top favorite anime. I don't think it will ever change either, i've never found a anime that has touched me like this. id give them my entire life savings so ask them to make a second one. thankyou so much for making this movie.
Please make another.
I love this anime with my whole being.
I'm so happy this was made, I re watch it every year and me opinion never changes.

Although this movie is not well known, I really enjoyed it. The story line may be a little just a little over used but in this movie it is well told. I really wish they bonded the characters a little more to add to the heart ache, but as far as it was told it is alright. (not too much not too little)

This story still is heart warming even if the ending is the way it is, it would be really cool if they had a alternet ending or the two main characters meet up again it would be cool (kinda like in clannad ...

Mixed Feelings
I really wanted to like this movie. I really really did. It has all the ingredients I like. Fantasy/magic, an isolated character interacting with the 'Real World' for the first time, a mix of comedy (slapstick and cerebral), drama, aliens, and a ghost sink.

I don't know if it was the subtle differences between Korean and Japanese animation that threw me, or the fact that they tried to stuff a full, 12 episode TV series (~288 minutes) into an 80 minute movie. All I know is that this movie didn't click for me.

Taken separately, each of the plot devices are great. ...
