Kokkuri-san? Seems that a more slice of life version of Kokkuri-san. I'm in.

This definitely gave me Kokkuri-san vibe rather than the others mentioned so far, mostly because it feels like it might be similar in humor. The bear looks pretty funny.

Well I cant see this anything like Gingitsune or Barakamon like mentioned here. Those are slice of life where the funny moments are not through heavy reaction and this rely on those heavy reaction. Along with the fantasy related character, its only Kokkuri-san that really seems similar to this.
