Kohina Ichimatsu, the self-proclaimed doll, called out the fox ghost Kokkuri-san with a suspicious incantation! But it was a story of the past where Kokkuri-san was able to answer any question you had. Nowadays, it relies on a certain search engine, but is actually bad at anything digital. He was going to possess Kohina, but got worried about her living all alone and devotes himself to do chores as if he was her mother. On top of that, the dog ghost Inugami who is infatuated with Kohina and the old good-for-nothing supernatural raccoon dog Shigaraki decide to root themselves with her as well!

The show has a diverse and hilarious cast to ensure that you will laughing at, at least 1 of the 5 gags/jokes this show throws at you per minute.I’m starting with characters because to be honest… If you don’t like the characters you will not enjoy the show. Kokkuri himself is portrayed as an attractive spirit struggling with a mid-life crisis due to him fearing for his relevance in the the modern world. Although he’s a man he has many intricacies that one would normally associate with women. This takes form (literally) later on in the show. Now Kohina can be a really hit or miss character with some people. Her design is extremely deformed in comparison to all of the other characters (which turns a lot of people off), but anyone who is familiar with “Oyasumi Punpun” should have at least some idea of whats really going on there. She is the center of all insanity that happens in each episode. Shigaraki was probably my favorite character although he started out as my least favorite. Another spirit who often brings misfortune to others, but despite this he is a true romantic. Inugami is yandere dog who died from neglect but was reincarnated into the world as a spirit. He/she gender swaps often due forgetting his/her gender in the previous life. Characters interactions were entertaining throughout.

The art is good – the scenery’s are nice, colorful, the anime gives off a happy vibe to it and most of the characters are also drawn well. And the music was good – it was complimenting, setting the mood and over all I was fond of it.This show is a form of pure comedy, and if you’re not into comedy, you’re probably better off elsewhere. However, that being said, it does what it does VERY well, and if you’re ever looking for a good laugh I would HIGHLY recommend this show. It’s not a show that does it all, but it does what it does very very well. If you’re ever in need of cheering up, or just want a good laugh, Gugure! Kokkuri-san is a show that is very worth your time.
