Priestess and fox spirit solve problems in fall anime
October's anime adaptation of Sayori Ochiai's seinen manga Gingitsune doesn't seem too anticipated among English speaking fans, but it's definitely on the radar of Japanese fans. Storyboard artist Noboru Misawa steps up to direct with veteran Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Argento Soma, Rosario + Vampire) on scripts. Mayuko Matsumoto and Naomi Ide provide character design for Diomedia (Squid Girl, Kodomo no Jikan).
