[Anime Review] Fox Spirit Matchmaker (Huyao Xiao Hongniang / Enmusubi no Youko-chan)

Currently, I like this anime! …As if it wasn’t that obvious, huh? Well, since the current icon of my wordpress site and the pinned post in the homepage all show the main female protagonist of this show, Tushan Susu, I guess it’s already that obvious.

And after looking at how underrated this anime is outside of China (I think), and others’ reviews of the first episode and how they dropped this series thinking from the opening and episode 1 that this anime is weird or crappy… I would like to cover the series in a review!

This review will have the comparison between its original Chinese version and the Japanese dubbing version.

Summary :

Once upon a time, a long time ago… It is not.

In the corner of a certain village where ayakashi and humans coexist, there is a shop that serves meals for ayakashi. The name of this eatery is “Ponpokorin”. In that store, both ayakashi and humans visit it seeking to have a delicious meal. The shop owner is a youko (a mythological fox spirit) taking on a human form.

“Everybody can be happy if they can have a delicious meal.” That was the youko’s creed. The youko and its soon-to-be 7-year-old son continue to cook delicious meals to this very day.

One day, as the hot summer ended and the harvest of autumn approached, a lone girl enters the youko’s store.

From that moment onwards, the story begins.

The beginning of a heart-warming story involving ayakashi, humans and delicious meals, starts here.
