Story of lovelorn Kyoto girl who can shape-shift thanks to fox deity premieres January 15

Funimation announced on Thursday that it will stream the Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. television anime series.

Morohe Yoshida's original romantic comedy manga revolves around Inari Fushimi, a shy, not-so-bright middle school girl living in Kyoto's Fushimi ward. She has a crush on her classmate Tanbabashi, but cannot express her feelings. One day, as thanks for helping a fox pup, the deity U-KA-no-Mitama-no-Kami grants her the ability to shape-shift.

The promotional video above begins with Inari (voiced by Naomi Ōzora) yelling at her brother for not waking her up in time to go to school. She then fawns over Tanbabashi (Hiroshi Okamoto) at school, and asks for him to teach her how to dribble, to which he laughs. Inari says how she doesn't like her clumsy self and her self that causes trouble for others. She adds that she someday wants to become a person who can have people say "thank you" to her. U-KA-no-Mitama-no-Kami (Houko Kuwashima) says that she heard the cries in Inari's heart.

Tōru Takahashi (Orphen: The Revenge) is directing the series with assistant director Hideki Okamoto (director of Battle Girls - Time Paradox, D.C. II: Da Capo II). Touko Machida (Karneval, Amnesia, The Everyday Tales of a Cat God) is in charge of the series scripts, and Yuka Takashina (The Ambition of Oda Nobuna, Venus to Mamoru, D.C.S.S. ~Da Capo Second Season~) is serving as character designer and chief animation director. Takeshi Senoo (Aria the Animation, Himawari!) is scoring the soundtrack. Production IMS, a studio that was just established in February, is animating the series after assisting on Fantasista Doll, Haganai, Date A Live, and Oreimo 2.

The anime will premiere in Japan on January 15.
