  • Beautiful characters that you easily get attached to
    I thoroughly watching this anime. It has a relaxing feel to it and I am always looking forward to every episode. They don't have a save the world plot or get rid of the evil youkai theme but instead deals with the relationship with the characters and how they deal with everyday life. Good back stories of the other characters too. I feel that there might be a season 2 I hope would be nice to ...

  • Easygoing, relaxing slice of life
    The show has all of your standard slice of life "aww" moments: a girl making friends, overcoming the stone hearted boy, familial love, and some cute, fluffy, mischievous characters. The focus on temples and temple life is also an added bonus and got me curious about the real temples of Japan - it's a nice touch.

    All in all, this was enjoyable and I'd love to see a second season.

  • Relaxing and very watchable
    Gingitsune is super fun, laid back and doesn't take itself too seriously. A beautiful anime with a heart of gold that brings in its audience slowly. I would love to see a second season of this and see Makoto progress in her shrine maiden journey. Also I want to find out where Kinjiro went. So much mystery left in this story. Would totally recommend to others. :-D

  • Very enjoyable Temple Lore Anime
    very sweet anime that you can just lay back and enjoy. i love animes that delve into the spirit lore of temples and theirs guardians. From the main characters and their interactions and to the questions of " what happens to spirits when they are no admired and worshiped at their shrines?" Hope they continue with more episodes as the manga is not all translated out of japan yet.

  • I didn't want it to end!
    I really enjoyed this anime, it was a nice break from the action anime I've been watching lately. I really wish there could be a second season. I'm left wanting to know so much more, like what happened to Gin's partner and what happens to each character. I'll just have to read the manga!

  • Surprisingly cute show!
    Watched this anime on a whim, and I'm glad I did. I wish it was longer, but making it longer would probably cheapen it a bit. This makes me want to earn more about Shintoism and Japanese gods. Oh, how I wish there was a shrine near me that I could visit. Gintaro-sama is a softy, no matter how gruff he appears at first. Saeki Makoto annoyed me a bit, but her heart is in the right place.

  • Good and Place to Be!
    Very good, wish there was second anime, or carry on with more episode.

    Although a very good anime to watch, and getting people attend to actual location to be at.

    Just wondering if the characters are same people in real life?

    But very good =)

    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.
