posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Kadokawa announced on Monday that Rimukoro's Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san (Senko, the Always-Helpful Fox) is inspiring a television anime adaptation that will premiere in spring 2019. Tomoaki Koshida (Zoku Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru.) is directing the anime at Doga Kobo. Yoshiko Nakamura (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Tada Never Falls in Love) is in charge of series composition and is penning the scripts. Miwa Oshima (The Story of Saiunkoku, Koihime Musō, Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA) is designing the characters.
The "healing comedy" manga centers on Nakano, an employee of an exploitative "black" company, who meets a divine fox spirit named Senko. While she looks like a young girl, Senko is in fact 800 years old. She offers to spoil Nakano as much as possible, and begins looking after him.
Rimukoro launched the manga on Kadokawa's Comic Newtype manga website in October 2017. Kadokawa published the manga's second compiled book volume on August 10, and will publish the third volume on December 10. The manga ranked #16 in the web manga category of Niconico's Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards earlier this year.
