Romance about a girl and a fox deity who grants her the ability to shape-shift streamed earlier this year

Funimation Entertainment announced on Monday that it has acquired to the anime Inari Kon Kon (Inari Kon Kon Koi Iroha). The company plans to release the series in 2015 with English subtitles only.

Funimation streamed the series as it aired this past winter.

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 Uka-no-Mitama-no-Kami grants her the ability to shape-shift.

Toru Takahashi (Orphen: The Revenge) directed 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) was 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~) served as character designer and chief animation director. Takeshi Senoo (Aria the Animation, Himawari!) scored the soundtrack. Production IMS animated the series.

Update: Funimation added that it has also acquired the OVA episode, and will include it on the home video release. Funimation never streamed the episode. Thanks, Rukiia.
