First Impressions: Gingitsune

[HorribleSubs] Gingitsune - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.50_[2013.10.20_14.58.16]

Makoto Saeki is the daughter of a shrine priest in a small Inari Shinto shrine dedicated to the God Ukanomitama. Despite being the fifteenth generation heiress of the Shrine, she is living a good life after her mother died. However, she has an unusual gift when she met the messenger of the god Inari: an anthropomorphic fox named Gintaro, declaring her the successor. Gintaro can see a short glimpse into the future and find lost things despite being rude and unmotivated, but still developed a good friendship with Makoto. As she is the only girl who can see the spirit, both of them decide to be a go-between for the gods and humans as they try to help those who come to the shrine.

Today I watched the first episode of Gingitsune. It was a pleasant sweet episode engaging an unusual relationship between a herald and a human girl.

This series is a must watch with the family, that is, if you watch anime with your son or daughter then pay no second thoughts. Even if you don’t share such traits like that. I still would say that it’s worthwhile. It’s really rare to see anime series like this, things like Bunny Drop (P.S Don’t mention the dark side of the manga, the anime was generally good though!), Kamichu!, and Studio Ghibli films (oh god when I first wrote this I actually wrote stupid ghibli, no ill intentions!).

My thoughts on it? I enjoy series like this. They are simple, touching, and sweet to the point that there isn’t a deeper meaning (plot wise). It was delightful to hear the music in the anime. I don’t know who’s the composer but he or she truly did an amazing work. This includes the voice actor who voices Gintaro. One of the most amazing voice I’ve ever heard from a male actor to be honest. We can all fangirl about voice actress, but you rarely see people praising voice actors(japan) in our western communities.

Anyway, that’s it from me.
