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 read more

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 read more

Holy crap, it's finally over! The anime of my dreadful loathing! This anime was just so bad, I HAD to write a review on it.

Kanokon was obviously made with horny sex craving boys as its audience. You want fanservice? It has fanservice. You want naked chicks? This anime has it. In fact, this anime goes over-the-top borderline with its sexual innuendos, activities and visual eye candy. The main character, Kouta, is stalked by two girls, both being what men usually crave. The ready-and-willing big-breasted pretty girl, and the ready-and-willing breast-less loli character. Both want sex from him, and will do anything to do read more

First of all, hide this anime from anyone you live with. Unless they like hentai too.

Yes indeed, this is THE closest thing to hentai you will probably ever see in an anime. It's nuts. But what's underneath all the fanservice, you ask? Well, a mediocre storyline, I'm sorry to say. This anime focuses all it's energy on the fanserivce (like the manga does, so no surprise there). Let's jump right in.

STORY: 6/10

It's really not that inventive; the whole story feels like a setup so that Kouta can get into ecchi situations. Two spirit girls start liking him, a bunch of random crap happens. No real read more
