Ultra Jump’s May issue is announcing that Sayori Ochiai’s manga, Gingitsune (Silver Fox), will be getting an anime adaptation. The staff information has been included along with the announcement.
The story of the manga focuses on Makoto Saeki, a girl who was given the power to see and talk to Gintaro after her mother’s death. Gintaro is a fox spirit messenger for the gods who has been guarding the Inari temple since the Edo period. Despite the differences between the two, Makoto and Gintaro still cooperate in helping the people of their community solve their issues.
- Directed by Shin Misawa (Capeta)
- Series Composition by Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Rosario + Vampire)
- Character Design by Maiko Matsumoto, Naomi Ide (Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?)
- Production Studio: Diomedea
Gingitsune has a drama CD with a cast that includes Kanae Itou, Toshihiko Seki, Machiko Kawana, Umeka Shouji and Yusei Oda. However, it hasn’t been confirmed if these voice actors will be reprising their roles in the upcoming anime.
Upon reading the synopsis about the manga, I was reminded of Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume’s Book of Friends). This may be a seinen manga, but if you loved the adventures of Natsume and Nyanko-sensei, this might just be your cup of tea.
