Gingitsune series review

Ginitsune (6)

Makoto is having a wonderful day! 

 Just in case you wondered what happened with the Gingitsune reviews I kind of dropped it for a bit for reviewing because not a lot actually happened week after week for certain episodes but I did continue to watch it! So here you go the final review and yes I know I said Sawako instead of Hiwako…yeah…I don’t know why! Anyway I hope you enjoy listening to the final review.


Extra fun

The moe virus is strong in this one.

Satoru is such a cool character but acts a bit like Red/Ledo from Gargantia!

See you next time.


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

    Really good Slice, wasn’t it? Not as good as Non Non, but what could be.

    • Foshizzel says:

      hahah yeppers! I liked Non Non a bit more than this but I was really watching to hear Hisako Kanemoto as Makoto <3

    I really liked this series and hope it gets a second season. I want to know if Hiwako gets over her crush on Makoto’s father or confesses to him. That could add some complications and drama!

    • HannoX says:

      Actually, drama’s probably not what this series should have. But it could make for some interesting situations.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Another season would be great but I dunno how much it actually sold to gain another? That said I wouldn’t mind seeing more about Makoto’s mom and Gin’s friend because they hardly ever talked about those characters.

    • BlackBriar says:

      I don’t know if it would get another season but it’s definitely welcome with me.

  3. Highway says:

    I liked this series a lot, just as a show you like to watch. All the characters were likable, all the plots were fairly usual, as you’d expect. It was nice that it wasn’t “Makoto gets in trouble and needs help from Gintaro to rescue her” like Kamisama Hajimemashita was. Everyone solved their own problems for the most part. It could have been a little less of Satoru being all serious, but ah well.

    And I think that Hiwako and Tatsuo would be a great couple. 🙂 Tatsuo’s really a great guy, and if Hiwako waited a few years, that would probably work pretty well.

    • HannoX says:

      I agree those two would make a great couple. And since Tatsuo’s a priest and a member of a locally prominent family I think her father would accept it. Plus if Hiwako told Makoto of her feelings (before confessing to Tatsuo) I think Makoto would definitely be in her corner and help her. I do think Tatsuo would require some convincing to see Hiwako as a romantic interest.

      • Highway says:

        Well, I think it would need to be in like 5 or 8 years. After Hiwako goes through college, etc. So that it’s not a situation where Tatsuo was just a father replacement, but really more of a “I’ve sampled the waters, and I really do care for you the most” kind of thing.

        The other moment I really liked in the series was Yoshizumi’s wish: “Please let me not fall in love with my boss’s daughter!”

        It would be interesting to follow this story through college and see what happens with Makoto, whether she finds a man who would want to be a priest and stays at the shrine, or whether she moves on to some other calling in life. I have to think that her preference would be to stay at the shrine, even if Gintaro was supportive of her leaving.

        • HannoX says:

          Oh, I don’t think they’d be a couple immediately. I agree that after Hiwako finishes university would be more like it for marriage. Although she’d probably let him know before then, like after she graduates high school. She wouldn’t want to risk him finding someone else if she doesn’t let him know how she feels! And that would give them several years to find out if the relationship would work out.

          Yoshizumi’s wish was great.

          Yeah, I’d also like to see what Makoto choses for her path in life. Although if Hiwako marries Tatsuo you’d think Makoto would leave the shrine. It has been said that their shrine is a small one and by implication couldn’t support two families. There’s always Satoru’s shrine if she marries him, though there’d be a fight to get his relatives out of it.

          OTOH, Tatsuo might decide to leave the priesthood and join his family’s business, thus clearing the way for Makoto and her husband (whoever he is) to take over the shrine since she’s the one with the bloodline that can see the messengers and so would her children. And he might do that whether or not he remarries anyone.

          • Highway says:

            It is interesting, being more used to the Christian type of ‘priest’, to see the much more ‘it’s a job’ idea that Shinto priests have. I am more used to the idea of it being a ‘calling’, and have to recalibrate when they talk about things like Makoto going and trying something else, or someone just becoming a priest because they marry into it.

            Satoru’s the rightful heir to the shrine, and if he wanted to get it, I think that his aunt and uncle would have to let him have it, given that’s what his grandfather stated.

            • HannoX says:

              Yes, his aunt and uncle would have to give it to him, but I don’t see them doing so without kicking up a big fuss, especially his aunt.

  4. Kyokai says:

    This was a nice, mellow addition for Fall. Nothing exciting really happened but it always put a smile on my face while watching. This was something similar to Space Bros and Gin no Saji for me.

    • BlackBriar says:

      I haven’t seen Space Bros but I can agree it’s up there with Gin no Saji.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah not as drama filled as I originally thought it was going to be like Kotoura-san, but it worked really well for some of us even though like you said Kyo it really is not for those looking for a Gin no Saji or Space bros.

  5. BlackBriar says:

    It took some time but I marathoned the remaing episodes. Though much can’t be said, Gingitsune was a nice slice of life show to watch and the characters grow on you quickly. I can easily recommend this to anyone who just wants to sit back and burn a little extra time on their hands. This is my opinion but given Gintarou’s personality, it’s safe to say he’s one big tsundere.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeppers! There really isn’t a whole lot going on with Gin and Makoto but there is something there! I was drawn to the characters because they just come off as likeable <3
