One of the best Harem-fan service comedies arrives in American territory, KANOKON is not your typical "pervy" anime it could be THE best ECCHI anime ever made, "Xebec"( To Love-Ru, Love Hina ) made this series as enjoyable as possible, meaning you won't be bored with all the mischief going on in each episode, the characters, backgrounds, the superb and well rendered animation, light and shadow effects are as detail as something that I've ever seen before specially for this type of anime, if you are into Harem-anime then you already know that most of them have bad quality and animation.

Kanokon's story revolves around Kouta , a young first-year high school student. On his first day at his new school, a beautiful second-year female student named Chizuru (long black hair) asks him to meet her alone in the music room. When he arrives, she reveals that she is in fact a fox deity and from that day on the two hang out together. Nozomu ( blonde short hair) is a first year female student at Kouta's school, she is a wolf deity in love with Kouta, and a rival of Chizuru for Kouta's affections.

The story and plot lovers will be disappointed because there's barely a story here, then again this is a HAREM COMEDY, what makes this types of shows is not about the stories is all about fan service, and this anime has lots of it BUT I'm not talking of just panty shots, this anime goes beyond any innuendo ever imagined.

PROS
- Price
- All 12 episodes.
- OVA shorts.
- English and Japanese audio.
- Vivid colors, fluent and beautiful animation that I'll describe it not as eye candy but as eye protein.
- Each character has a unique charm ( specially the squirrel girls).
- Nozomu.

I am not going to go over what has been said before. I thought the story was a good premise, yokai (spirit creatures) living in our world and mostly blending in. The story of a young man being pursued by a sexy fox girl and a young wolf lass and being exposed to that world, and all the dangers and rewards that go with them (the insults and banter between Chizuru and Nazomu always livens things up).

This is a HIGH level Ecchii series, so not for younger kids. It does toe the line between Ecchi and light Hentai, and a couple of times might put a toe or two over (disc three Girls Channel about Chizuru's mother and the snow girl is a prime example)but never crosses it which is a good thing. Now I would not call it a real harem comedy (Tenchii, Dual, and Kampfer being prime examples), since there are only 2 girls pursuing our hapless lad (well three if you count one who appears near the end but never reveals herself to him so i do not think she counts. But the characters are full of life and actually interact well together, both mundanes and yokai (my favorite is the little frog girl). There are some holes in the story and the ending could have been better, but overall I loved it and will keep it in my collection and watch it again if there is ever a hole in releases ,or need to have something to watch while I am on the treadmill. The only bad thing was when i got it, the disk holder was broken and the disks were lose (but none were damaged, thankfully).

Enjoy!!!!!!

As expected with a lot of harem animes out there the standard story is you have a young cute looking high school boy Kouta Oyamada who has attracted the romantic attentions of a disguised Yokai fox girl Chizuru Minamoto who is a year ahead of him and a young disguised female wolf yokai Nozomu Ezomori and the hijinx and hilarity that happens as the both battle each other for young Kouta's heart and affection. The series as expected with the cover does have the usual fan service like a lot of these series with the standard nudity and hentai innuendos but stops short of anything to x-rated so don't worry about this being a henatai anime. The animation is decent it's not bad but some people might not care for it, the voice cast for the Japanese subbed did their roles very nicely but even with some known name casts on this series the dubbed cast just sometimes seemed to fall flat as they did their character roles especially on the actress for the characters of Chizuru and Nozumu as they seemed to make their voices for their characters more subservient than they actually were especially when you listen to the subbed voices doing their roles. The added characters like Chizuru's younger brother and others bring a nice humorous line up with the series so the entertainment for the show doesn't drop anywhere really, and as for the extras there mostly the standard textless intro/ending songs though there are some nice short OVA's. So for the price I say this is a nice add on for anyone who like the harem comedy animes with the fan service common with these series but expect disappointment with the dubbing as it's at least 40/60 on the quality...

This is fanservic plain and simple. From episode one to episode twelve you will watch your heroine fling her body at our hero time and time again thankfully it doesn't get into H-catagory staying squarly in ecchi territory.. Not only that but the sub character declares herself his mistress. The animation is very high quality, the japanese voice acting is right on, and the music is very good.

Now I might sound a little harsh, and I did like the show to a degree, but it just goes overboard at times with thrusting flesh at the screen. And as you might notice on the box art, your hero is just one big spaz the whole time. Despite daily bust shows, panty showings, and other flirtatious actions he freaks out nearly every single time. He is a very two dimensional character with little growth. The two heroins however do get some good development. And a lot of the side-characters are in realty very interesting, but don't get enough screen time.

This bundle is FAR superior than the idea of buying multiple single DVDs. In a nutshell the show was alright, a lot better shows out there, but if you like heavy fan service, like girls with animal ears (fox and wolf mostly) then you'll enjoy this. Just don't expect something akin to Shakespeare, want a good laugh (taking the male lead with a grain of salt), and don't mind naughty bits then you'll get your money out of this.
