True love never dies—even when it is between a human and a near-immortal youkai. Thankfully, fox spirit youkai have discovered a solution which allows a human to be reincarnated, and with the services of a Fox Spirit Matchmaker, eventually recall memories of their past life, so they can begin anew with their beloved youkai.
Enter Bai Yuechu—a powerful human Taoist who desires freedom from the ruling Yi Qi Dao League—and Tushan Susu, a small and innocent fox spirit who dreams of becoming a renowned matchmaker, despite her reputation as a colossal screw-up. After Susu literally falls through the roof and into his life, Yuechu gets dragged into helping her bring together two separated lovers: prince Fan Yun Fei and his reincarnated lover, Li Xueyang. However, not everyone wants them to be reunited, including Xueyang herself. Thrown together by fate, Yuechu and Susu will discover who they truly are... and who they used to be.
A Japanese dub of the series aired on television under the title Enmusubi no Youko-chan starting on July 1, 2017. Each TV episode was comprised of two ONA episodes with minor aesthetic touch-ups, formally concluding this season in its episode 6.
There are actually 48 episodes, 2 movies (about ep 1 - 28) and a combine ep for this anime (29 - 48).
The first 13 ep are just introducing how things work and stuff, and it get even better afterwards.
I am Chinese, so I watch it in the original site bilibili and be able to understand it fully (including some of those chinese jokes).
This is an amazing anime, and I totally recommend it, I cried multiple times so prepare tissues if you cry as easy as I do.
The anime gets better from ep 14 but ep 1- 13 are important as well
because they tell you what is actually happening.
The story is actually a lot deeper than what it shows you from the first few episodes :)
and all the characters are amazingggggg!!
Love that lasts generations and lovers who are reincarnated with the hope of rekindling their love this is what I believe sums up this anime.
Story (10/10) I'll write a quick personal synopsis as the synopsis provided tells you nothing about the anime. This anime is about fox spirit matchmakers who are tasked with aiding couples who have made a pledge in front of a special tree to fall in love again in their next lives. What I believe makes the story so great is how they slowly develop the feelings that the couples had for each other allowing the viewer to truly understand how they
fell in love.
Art (10/10) I'm not much of an art person I either like or it I don't I liked this art so I gave it a 10.
Sound (10/10) This anime had very suitable sounding ed unfortunately I don't understand chinese so I will just assume it was suitable words wise to. The first and second openings were nice to. Also they had some great music to go along with certain scenes that helped to enhance the mood.
Characters (8/10) The main cast of characters are very nice we have Yuechu Bai who is our main protagonist with a hilarious personality as he is a poor kid, who will try to save money at any opportunity possible and will also sell himself out for any type of food he is offered. The other main character is Tushan susu who is a major airhead and can be pretty funny at times but also a little aggravating.
Enjoyment (10/10) This review is currently at the completion of 22/27 episodes and my enjoyment is differently a 10 I have really enjoyed this anime. The story is just something I believe is so fitting for any good romance anime as I believe love that can lasts generations is close to perfect love.
Overall (10/10) I have given this anime an overall score of 10 as I pretty love every aspect of this anime so far and don't see why it should get anything less.
Personal note: Sorry about any terrible grammar I am very lazy and can't be bothered reading through to check and almost never put any commas in my writing. Also I believe that this anime is highly under rated and would recommended it to anyone that is interested in a good romance anime. Another quick side note the chinese may be a little difficult to get use to but it will only take a couple of episodes and you'll be use to it.
Frankly the plot is quite messy and chaotic, especially at the beginning--there's too much going on and at too fast a pace, and you'd probably struggle to read the subs and make sense of things. However the situation should improve by the 3rd episode, and as the series progresses, a plot gradually forms and steadily gains coherence. By the end of the 13th episode, you'd have your happy ending all nice and wrapped up. Bonus points for consistently making me chuckle, as well as having a slightly different flavour of fantasy (Chinese as opposed to Japanese or European) compared to the norm.
actors are virtually unknown, but I'm actually pretty impressed with the casting here. Not only do they have nice-sounding voices, their acting is pretty spot-on (in terms of matching the demands of the script and the characters.) The Opening and Ending theme is also quite catchy, and grows on you the more you listen to it.
More or less average quality.
There are quite a few subplots still to be resolved, and the alternate universe created here (seems like our world, except with animal spirits/demons and Taoist magic being common) still has room to be explored and be interesting. Sign me up for the second season...
