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.

Not really sure what you were expecting. It's not very good, but still on the better side of this strange ecchi purgatory. Animal spirits living unnoticed amongst humans is admittedly a somewhat interesting idea, but, as expected, nothing much is done with it. They pretend that it's important for the spirits not to reveal their 'true forms' to humans, but that seems to be totally forgotten after the first few episodes.

Other than the spirits part, it's nothing special. Two attractive women swarm around a spineless slug who looks like he's attending high school straight out of kindergarten. It has competent ...

I will make it short, the ecchi in this anime or fanservice whatever you wanna call it is sheeesh pretty good but, the MC is dreadful, little innocent obnoxious kid, might as well not have any MC and let the grils do all the work if you're going to have someone like him as the MC on an anime like this, thats it.

Why does this page want me to write a longer review? I have no idea, I have nothing else to highlight about this anime, there's nothing else about it, literally, so please MAL, just let me post my review.

This anime was so bad it actually cured my depression knowing I had no involvement in it's creation whatsoever, unfortunately it then put me into a deeper depression when I realised I was so bored I was willing to sit through this entire show.

there isn't anything redeeming about this anime in any capacity accept for maybe getting drunk and laughing at how bad it is. There was no real substance to the show unless you like the heavy amounts of fanservice but a that point you might as well watcha hentai. At least with something like highschool dxd you can occasionally see a fight ...
