Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a comedic anime series produced and directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike. It was made available on the Anime Network in 2014, and it features a total of 12 episodes that are each 24 minutes long. The show follows the story of a young girl named Kohina Ichimatsu who lives by herself and claims to be a doll due to her emotionless personality. She spends most of her time playing video games and making instant noodles for dinner. One day, Kohina decides to summon a fox spirit, hoping that it will be able to help her with her daily tasks. However, instead of just one spirit, three spirits are summoned by her request, including a mischievous fox spirit named Kokkuri-san.

Kokkuri-san, who is traditionally a Japanese folklore spirit known for possessing stuffed animals, is initially irritated by Kohina's behavior, but eventually develops feelings for her and becomes her protector. In addition to Kokkuri-san, a young girl named Shigaraki and a dog spirit named Inugami also become involved with Kohina's life. Together, they form an odd group that tries to help Kohina overcome her self-proclaimed doll status and find happiness.

Throughout the show, the different characters constantly get into comedic situations due to their unique personalities and quirks. Kokkuri-san is a germaphobe and is frequently seen cleaning every surface he comes into contact with. Inugami is obsessed with getting Kohina to pet him, and Shigaraki struggles with trying to find love while constantly being rejected.

The show is incredibly light-hearted and entertaining, relying heavily on its comedic elements to keep the audience engaged. The animation style is colorful and whimsical, adding to the playful nature of the series. However, the show also has its moments of deeper emotion, such as when Kohina begins to question her identity and the nature of her existence.

One of the most interesting aspects of the series is its use of Japanese folklore and mythology. Many of the spirits in the show are based on real-world legends, such as the tanuki, a shape-shifting raccoon dog, and the oni, a type of demon. This adds an extra layer of depth to the show and helps immerse the audience in the world it has created.

Overall, Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a fun and charming anime series that is sure to make viewers laugh and smile. With its unique characters and entertaining plot, it is a must-watch for fans of the comedy genre, as well as those interested in Japanese folklore.

Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on October 4, 2014.
