Like many hardworking members of the workforce, Kuroto Nakano is perpetually stressed out by his job. Still, since he lives alone, he must carry on to sustain himself. Little do humans like Kuroto know, this stress takes the form of darkness residing within a person's body and will bring one's life to ruin.

Fox deities can see this darkness and have the duty to save people before it is too late. To help rid Kuroto of his stress, Senko-san, an eight hundred-year-old foxgirl, volunteers to take care of him, and will do everything she can to ease the tension in his weary soul.

What I love about Senko-san is how it manages to strike a perfect balance between humor, relaxation, and emotional depth. The show's gentle humor and lighthearted moments are a great way to unwind, while the more emotional scenes provide a touching look at the relationship between Nakano and ...

tl;dr: An anime that’s very relaxing, though at time too much to the point it’s kind of boring.

This anime is one that’s purely slice of life centered around being relaxing. There’s a bit of light drama here and there, but there isn’t really much substance to it, at least as far as the anime gets.

The manga's artistic style is fine, but if I had to choose between the manga and the anime...
I would pick the anime's style over the manga on the account of how much cleaner it looks.

Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san is NOT a manga or anime I would recommend.
Why? Because there is an extremely problematic element regarding Nakano and Senko's relationship and (by extension) most of the relationships in this story with exception to maybe his friendship with Koenji: pedophilia.
