Kouta has girl troubles of the supernatural sort. For some reason, he keeps attracting the attention (and affections) of animal spirits!

Having spent most of his life in the country, Kouta is understandably nervous when he moves in with his grandma to attend a high school in the big city. He hoped to make a good impression, but having Chizuru, a beautiful fox spirit, hanging off his arm didn't seem to be the sort of image he wanted to have. She's not alone in her love for Kouta, either. Nozomu, a wolf spirit, as well as other youkai have their sights set on the hapless country boy.


Kanokon adapts the first 6 novels of Katsumi Nishino's light novel series of the same title.

Kanokon never gave me a boring moment to think about why I am watching this. First off, this is a "love it, or hate it" anime. Those who can withstand the ecchiness will love it, else they'll find it very annoying or to some extend even disgusting (repulsive is the word I am getting at...). It is plainly obvious that the anime is targeting the MALE audience. Yes girls, this anime is NOT FOR YOU! With that in mind, we'll proceed with the review.

This is perhaps THE closest anime to hentai you can ever find (well, lets just say it is at least on par ...

Mixed Feelings
I was a bit bored and i heard that kanokon was pretty funny and it included a little bit of ecchiness which I'm OK with. Then after about episode 2 i thought to myself "why am i watching this instead of porn?"

I found it incredibly difficult to swallow this anime mainly because i hated the main character, Kouta. Kouta is the definition of pussy. Hes some 10 year old super small, shy, gay, pussy assed little kid. That's all i can say. I really think that they could have made this show hilarious if they had replaced the main lead ...

I really feel like I need a shower and a delousing after watching this show. Kanokon manages to be one of the most perverted and in many ways disturbing things I have ever watched. It’s fortunate that it was short, because I doubt that I could have finished it had it been any longer.

Kanokon basically doesn’t have a story. A weak an uninteresting boy starts his year at a new high school where he is inexplicably besieged by hot girls. Standard echii anime fare here. The problem is nothing interesting ever happens. Kouta tries to avoid the affections of ...
