Kitsune - The Japanese fox (2023)

Kitsune - The Japanese fox (1)

Kitsune - The Japanese fox (2)

The foxes of Zorro arrived in Japan at the end of the seventh century. If the first signs of their arrival were modest, they flourished and soon they were one of the basic foods of Japanese folklore. I even did what their Chinese sisters did not do: they were part of theOfficial Religion Accepted.Shaute are the statues of the God of Foxi Ini God in Japan every day, and Inari herself is popularly accepted as a fox.

On the trip through the ocean, the Japanese foxes also lost some of the functions that Chinese foxes fulfill, to drink parties and gossip. The human world and the world of Kitsune do not mix as easily as in China. Kitsune is the stranger,Either a Kami or as a demon, and Japanese stories reveal or do not explore their world.

Japanese impressions

Some of the impressions are connected to Fox. I even sample a funny variant of Jan-Ken-Pon, in which the fox wins the director, the boss hits the weapon and the weapon hits the fox.

anime and manga

The anime and kitsune manga represent fun and disappointment. They allowed all their old religious connotations without fighting for enlightenment, without immoral mortals, without sexual parasitism.

And very little sexual responsibility for saying strange. Play kitsune qualities in anime and manga characters in fanficial arts, fanfiction and fan of fan (doujinshi). For an animated example, read fan of fan languages in English and the Japanese Doujinshi on Kurama de Kurama ofYuu Yuu Hakusho.

Although I suggested that the popular qualities on which fans focus are the sexual attraction of kitsunes, fans like to play with other aspects of the vulpine nature of Kitsune characters. For example, inFox tripMizushima Yui makes the worthy and reserved search for Kitsune Kurama for Ino-Zuhi as a puppy.

They step most of their fox's time and have Fox if they take the human form. Shouko, on the other hand, almost never neverHe fox and rarely takes the shape of the fox.


Kitsune Cub Shippou is a main character who follows the story of an action that resembles the classic story of Gene Kuro.SHIPPOU is rare because there are messengers of Fox and Fox and Fox Foot.

Yuu white paper

Youko Kurama (Minamino Shuuichi), a kitsune who was born in the body of a human child, is one of the main characters. The shape of the Kurama fox is a silver kitsune. It is not clear what the four roosters represent; in mythologyTraditional, they would mean that this would mean that Kurama has between four hundred five hundred years, but a comment from one of Kurama's former employees shows that Kurama is thousands of years.
