In addition, the site announced that the musical group fhána (The Eccentric Family ending theme) would perform the opening theme, and that the series will begin airing on TV Tokyo at 1:05 a.m. on October 6. The show will also air on ATX.
The story is set at a small Shinto harvest shrine dating back to the Edo period. Makoto Saeki lives with her father (the head priest of the shrine) and Gintarō, a kitsune (fox spirit) who happens to be a messenger for the gods. Makoto also happens to be the only one who can see the shrine's kitsune. The manga follows the everyday life of Makoto and Gintarō as they act as the go-between for the gods and humans.
Noboru Misawa (Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo) is directing the anime at Diomedea. Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Yukikaze, Rosario + Vampire) is in charge of the series scripts, and Mayuko Matsumoto (animation director on Astarotte's Toy, Squid Girl) and Naomi Ide (Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they?) are both designing the characters.
