    A World I Wish I Lived In
    Since its defeat in the Second World War, Japan has done something nearly unique -- arranged things so that its traditional religions can live comfortably with its rationalist economics, education, and politics. Such an accomplishment is worth trying to understand, and this anime helped me to achieve that. I could see how the Shinto shrines in the story, and the people in them, fit into the ...

    Just Adorable! Loved every moment
    This anime made me say out loud afterwards "wasn't that just sweet as could be". If you want to watch something heartwarming and caring, this is just the pick-me up you are looking for. A lovely slice of life in set around a shrine and a young girl finding her way.

  • great anime, characters and beautiful scenery
    Gingitsune: Messenger Fox of the Gods is truly a wonderful anime with beautiful scenery that teaches about traditional Japanese culture. It teaches you a bit about shrines and how they work and what the etiquette is suppose to be like. Seeing the realtionship between Gintaro and the shrine maiden is truly a heartwarming sight to see.

  • Nice view into traditional Japnaese culture
    For me this was interesting to watch since a Shinto Shrine is not of average nature (no portals to Hell or Mechas from the world of the gods) and minimal magical realism - you see the Messengers To the Gods (though they are more comic than dramatic) - and the daily business of a family running a shrine. Perhaps the only real plot here is a young shrine priestess and a guest priest finding a way ...

  • I love this show!!!!
    It's a nice slice-of-life show that portrays the relationships between friends, family, and heralds of the shrines.
    I would most definitely recommend this show to anyone. In some ways, it is similar in feeling and atmosphere with Natsume Yuujinchou..

    Good show but needs more
    Too short of a series even though I enjoyed every episode. I feel like it could have been at least 24 episodes to give us a little more about each character and where their lives went from the Summer Cleansing on. Very nostalgic feel, some moments reminded me of Natusume Yuujinchou. Overall a good series. 4/5 stars.

    Boring and wasn't worth my time.
    I've noticed that just about everyone left good reviews for this one, so I hate to be the bad egg, but whatever. I thought the story was boring and slow paced. Not much seemed to happen and some of the voices of the characters were just annoying to listen to. I love a great "feel-good" anime now and then, but this didn't make me feel warm and toasty inside one bit. It felt empty and lacked any ...

    Warm feel-good anime.
    A nice slice of life anime mixed with a touch of Natsume's Book of Friends nostalgia. Consistently satisfying every episode and left you feeling happy. It wrapped up nicely, though has plenty of room to grow. Definitely deserves another season or two.

  • The little things in life.
    Where do I start with this series? It's happy, light hearted, contains elements of character development, and humor that is in just the right dose to keep the viewer paying attention to the story, there is even a few hints of romance too.

    From my own perspective; I noticed each episode being packed to the brim with as much story as possible, which is a welcome sight in my opinion. The animation ...

    Such a wonderful show!
    I loved this show. The slice of life genre is pretty great and this show is one of the best. The characters were great, the story was great everything was awesome, except that it was so short. I feel they could have gone another 12 episodes or so, and do deeper character development. However in the end it was just a glimpse into the lives of these characters. I really hope they somehow create a ...
