    Foxgirls, yuri and cuteness overload
    I'm writing this review after watching the first four episodes, but I'm already pretty confident about this series. It's an extremely relaxing, cute slice-of-life with a bit of yuri romance. What sets it apart from usual "moe" formula is a really interesting fantasy setting (taking heavily from Japanese folklore), which isn't just an excuse to have foxgirls as the main cast, but makes the magic ...

    Kitsune Slice-of-Life!
    OK, I really needed this show. Similar in plot and setting to past favorite Hanasaku Iroha, this series follows the arrival of a young girl at an elegant--if determinedly traditional [read: "vaguely outdated"]--inn as she joins the staff, all of whom just happen to be Kitsune, or fox-folk. Seemingly set in an earlier era, the story is slow, uncomplicated, and utterly relaxing, ...

    Simply adorable. Watch for 10/10 SOL goodness.
    Foxgirls. Yuri. If either of these words spark your interest, then you're going to have a good time. If they don't, watch the show and I'm sure that, by the end of episode 1, they will. First episode of this show and I'm already in love with half the cast. Music is beautifully arranged, the artwork is top notch, and it's as comfortable as hot cider on a cold winter's night. AOTS, here we come!

    Cute lesbian kitsune run an inn
    The best comparison I can think of for this show is ARIA. It's slow moving, gentle, and very sweet. Also, everything about this show is adorable. And gay - as this is based on a real Yuri Manga - but it's not like that's the focus of the show, it's just incidental.
    Updates to follow as show progresses.

    The surprise best show of the season
    You could be forgiven for taking a single glance at Konohana Kitan and writing it off as a generic slice-of-life show whose shtick is that the girls have fox ears. I would strongly encourage you to give it a second look; it has a cast of surprisingly well-written characters, creative humor, and delicately handled emotional moments. It's just as likely to subvert tropes as it is to rely on them, ...

    If you don't like cute, find something else
    This is a cute anime about - as the cover art suggests - fox spirit girls. Working at a hot spring inn, with a lot of mostly non-human clients.

    Unlike many lesser anime series of this type, they do take the time to develop actual personalities for the characters. There is a girl/girl relationship dynamic. There isn't really an over-arcing plot to the series, so it simply follows the daily life ...

    Cute, Heartwarming and Beautiful
    It started out cute and funny in the first episode which I expected then as it progressed it opened up with rich character development and interaction. Mixing cute moe with slice of life is a good combination here and then some Japanese folklore enriches the storyline even more. It is relaxed and easygoing without becoming boring. The visuals are vibrant and sweeping without being jarring. They ...

    Never knew I needed cute fox girls in my life
    Like cute girls? How about foxes? Great! Now combine the two and you got cute fox girls doing... cute things.

    It's a sweet little slice'of'life anime that involves young fox girls tending to guests at a chic resort. There's not nearly as much gross/pervy fanservice as I was originally expecting, so I'm rather happy about that.

    Wholesome and healing.
    I'm normally not too excited about all-female moe anime. It's been done a million times. But this series changed my views on that.

    At first, I only clicked because I saw foxgirls on the thumbnail, but I was so pleased with what I saw that I stuck with the show.

    The biggest pros of this anime are the characters, how they interact with each other, and how they grow as a person. It was sort ...
