First Impressions – Gingitsune

Are you ready for some feels! I know I am.

 I usually pass on demon stories with humans, but I need my Natsume Yuujinchou fix and I think Gingitsune will be able to provide that fun and emotion! At least I certainly hope so and I can’t ignore a series with both Hisako Kanemoto and Tomokazu Sugita who recently worked together in Gargantia as Amy and Chamber; however Sugita’s role seems to be a minor character…so lets start the show!


Extra demon fun

These two are a perfect match.


Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    I liked this show, it was very entertaining. About the only quibble I had with it was that it felt like Makoto was not drawn to fit in with the rest of the people her age. Like all the other girls looked like high school girls, and she looked like a 5th grader. I can understand the shrine maiden being more plain, but this was more pronounced than that, and it had the effect of making her feel really infantile compared to everyone else, more than just naive or innocent.

      Ohhh? I think she fits but yeah there were a few shots that made her look like a little kid and maybe her attitude had something to also play into that? She does appear to cry at the drop of a hat just like Kotoura…

    All I have to say is… Furry(ies).

    This anime remind me about Kamisama Hajimemashita, but more revolving around humans world than deity world. I love the dynamics between Makoto and Gintaro, they’re like Nanami and Tomoe respectively, but being in non-shoujo relationship.

    By the way, if you want to hear more Sugita’s voice, then you should watch Samurai Flamenco XD

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah I never got into Kamisama Hajimemashita because of the whole demon x human thing that reminded me of lame Inuyasha, but since there is nothing like that in Gingitsune it might be a better story for me.

      Yep I saw the first episode only because of Sugita staring as one of the main roles.

    • Highway says:

      Maybe it was because Makoto felt so much like a little girl throughout the show, but I never got the same kind of romantic vibe from this that was so prevalent in Kamisama Hajimemashita. Plus, Gintaro isn’t nearly as much of a jerk as Tomoe was, even if he did get a little grouchy.

      • Foshizzel says:

        Right Makoto is a bit of a kid in this in terms of attitude towards Gintaro, but I assume she will quit being a huge baby and learn to live with her “power” to see the gods/demons.

        I really DO NOT want a romance between Makoto and Gintaro that would feel way too strange >.<

        • Liza says:

          I feel like a relationship between the two would not work. Based on the dynamic, I feel like Gintaro is more like a dad or an older brother to her than something romantic.

    Loved this first episode. A quiet and sweet show, and the characters are a lot of fun. I got both Natsume Yuujinchou and Kamisama Hajimemashita vibes from this, which I’m perfectly okay with since I loved both shows. I will be curious to see what sorts of stories this one will handle.

    Lol @ Gintarou with sunglasses. 8)

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah this was very Natsume Yuujinchou! I am also curious to see what happens with this series and the plot development between Gintarou and Makoto.

      Glasses are always cool~

    Not a bad start to be honest although it does take its time to showcase things that appear important like Makoto being able to see what regular people can’t. The biggest what I think will be for this series is that both leads are polar opposites of each other. Gintarou’s lazy, Makoto’s enthusiastic so it’s makes the story interesting having their tug of war routine to decide what gets done.

    As for why Makoto’s father can’t see fox spirits or other beings, it’s because he’s a member of the family by marriage and is not from the same bloodline as the mother who can perceive the supernatural. Makoto has her mother’s hereditary traits.

    • Foshizzel says:

      I like how their personalities mirror each other! Like you said Makoto is outgoing and enthusiastic while Gintarou is lazy and just wants to lay around eating oranges lolol

      True! I didn’t think about that good call BB!

  6. Liza says:

    I really enjoyed the laid back nature of this show. I like the concept of the shrine people being able to talk to spirits. The only problem I had in the show was Makoto. Something about her was just…annoying. I can’t put my finger on it but her personality grated on me a bit.

    • Foshizzel says:

      I could see where some would find Makoto annoying, but I love Hisako Kanemoto and I don’t mind her being a bit of a crybaby xD
