When he was young, Arimasa Tsuchimikado rescued an injured cat and wished for it to become human. The cat, Kagetsu, is actually a member of the shape-shifting Kouga tribe and comes to live with Arimasa.

Years later, Arimasa is an uneasy presence in his village. The villagers despise him for being half-fox, but he is also the only one able to protect the village against supernatural invasion. Meanwhile, Kagetsu is going through a difficult period where he must choose which sex he will live the rest of his life as, a process he can only complete through sexual intercourse.

As pressure from other members of the Kouga clan opposes the wishes in Kagetsu’s heart, Arimasa's village is struck by a large-scale supernatural attack. With his peaceful life threatened, Arimasa will be forced to make undesirable decisions.

The story itself wasn't bad or anything, but it would be better if there were more episodes ...

Having completed Kashou no Tsuki: Aki Kyougen and seen the average score, I decided to say some words for this anime, because you know, it is not that bad. The matter is in wrong first impression and wrong expectations, I guess.

The story is set in distant past and follows the half-fox shaman accompanied by his apprentice. The two travel and try to get along with the society, each other - and themselves. The latter is the hardest, I guess.
The plot is somewhat incomplete/rushed and leaves a bunch of gaps indeed. I wish there was more time to uncover the nesessary details, the two-episode OVA is ...

Over 10 years of watching anime and I thought I had seen the worst; Sadly, I was wrong.

Let me say this first: I'm not disappointed because there was not even a kiss between the alleged couple. The reason why I gave this one such a low score, was the entire enjoyment I could get out of this, and it was close to none.

Story was decent enough to keep me engaged for the two episodes this had to offer. However, for an adaptation, this anime was quite a rushed one (original manga had 14 volumes.. freaking FOURTEEN and all we got was an hour of poor ...
