There comes a time where we always question ourselves as to when, where, or why we watch a certain series. It happens, we don't know how, we don't know why, but it happens, and here I am asking myself that question. I'm not the kind to watch animes with plenty of bishounens that babysit kids, I certainly don't, did I come across "Gugure! Kokkuri-San" again? Nobody f**king knows, but who f**king cares, "Gugure! Kokkuri-San" is definitely something that can appeal to most casual audiences. Its simple, its easy-going, there's not much you need to look out for, and the general flow of the anime doesn't have much going for it, its one of the easiest animes in the world to follow. Whether or not you enjoy this sort of thing will easily decide the worthiness of this anime in your directory, and if you do, "Gugure! Kokkuri-San" can be quite entertaining. If you want a DIFFERENT kind of slice of life anime, this one fits very well.

Everyone should just stay girls, Kohina should
choose the yuri route!

The opening theme is "Welcome! Disco Kemokemoke!" by the 3 main seiyuus of the 3 main animal spirits, Daisuke Ono, Takahiro Sakurai and Jouji Nakata. For a song sang by 3 guys its actually quite catchy, which I assume was the point of it. The ending theme, "This Merry Go Round Song" by Atsushi not so much. Its a slow tempo song with nothing much new that's being offered that has been done in many slow songs used in many ending themes already.

Rating: 7.5/10

It's probably a good show if you're into slice of life animes, other wise, there's nothing new here that'll draw you into watching it. If you like slice of life, there's a lot here to keep you occupied, from the weird theme to the unique characters...especially the protagonist. Whether or not this one is considered as an otome show...I'll lean towards it being not. While it does have a female protagonist being surrounded by handsome male characters, there isn't any romance or harem themes going on in, there are other female characters in the show, and one of the main male leads in the show keeps transforming into a girl just for the f**k of it.  Why? This is a show about ancestral spirits haunting a little girl, no sense has to be made, deal with it. The comedy is above average, there are some seriously laugh worthy moments, especially with more of the characters coming into the picture. This is one you can laugh to whether or not you're male or female.

As you can see, ol'Kokkuri-San isn't exactly tech-savvy.

Ichimatsu Kohina is a self proclaimed robot, elementary school girl with no emotions. However, she's living alone in a massive mansion and desires some sort of a playmate, so she pulls up an old ritual scroll and tries to summon Kokkuri-san, a supposedly dangerous fox spirit that haunts those who dares to summon him. Surprisingly, Kokkuri-San DID appear, but he did not look like what Kohina expected. Instead of a scary ghost, a handsome looking man in his 20s with fox ears appeared before her. Plus, instead of haunting the poor girl, he goes around commenting on her poor lifestyle. Kohina loves to laze around and eat cup noodles, Kokkuri-San, being the clean freak and bossy old man, nags on her to eat more healthily and to clean up her house. Kohina has made a huge mistake summoning this crazy fox, and she knows it. Before she knew it, Kokkuri-San started to permanently live in Kohina's establishment, now serving as the semi-house maid, cooking her meals, nagging on her and cleaning up her after her messes.

"Gugure! Kokkuri-San!" ends on a high note, maybe even close to baiting out a sequel, which I probably won't complain if it DOES eventually show itself. Its an anime that isn't for anyone, but easily appeals to slice of life fans. Give it a shot, if you like the first few episodes, chances are that you'll like the rest just as well.
