Synopsis: A young girl by the name of Kohina summons a Kokkuri-san, a low-ranking ghost. While he initially intends to haunt her, he soon becomes worried about her terrible eating habits and decides to haunt her in order to protect her.


For those of you who don’t know what Kokkuri is, it’s something similar to the Ouija-board – a game used for divining things by having a coin or something slide around a board and spelling out answers to life-defining questions such as whether the boy you like returns your feelings. Now, as far as I know, Ouija is used to speak to the dead? Not sure. With Kokkuri however, one of a group of spirits is responsible for moving the coin – either a fox, a tannuki or a tengu.

In Kohina’s case, she manages to summon the fox (foxes are notorious pranksters, apparently). So we end up with a situation where the prankster is actually worried enough to stick around and try and look after his intended target. And based on the PV, a couple of others will also turn up – I did see the tannuki in there after all.

Light-hearted comedy, with maybe a splash of romance, since the fox seems to be a bit of a bishie. Might be worth a look in the name of entertainment.
