It must be in balance, or else there will be chaos.” the so called “price” for Watanuki’s wish was to work for her and do the chores, cooking and doing errands for her. Watanuki’s life takes a turn the very moment he enters the shop. What will happend to Watanuki? Will they be able to get rid of his annoying ability to see the supernatural? Watch and find out!

My Side Comment:

This anime is actually my favorite. What Yuuko means in the quotation above is actually the price depends on how is the weight of the wish of the person. If you want cash then you have to give of equal value for example a precious belonging. The anime’s genre maybe Supernatural and Mystery but it also a has twist of Comedy so I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy the antics of the characters here and also the different mysteries every episode.

Site Recommendation:

Either watch in or in, These are just recommendations so every site is good ^^

My Side Comment:

If you love the YokaixHuman love story then this is the manga for you! The story is really cute but they are not all that lovely dovey. You might have to be patient if you want to see the real action begin (by action I mean progress between them). Also the art is good. The progress of the story is really good, how Nanami (the main heroine) meets all kinds of people and the history of the fox familiar Tomoe and who was the man that offered his house(Shrine) to her. The story is also has a blend of comedy so if you love comedy and romance blended together in one glass then this is the one. This manga is also still currently being published so the quote “Patience is a virtue” will indeed be needed so for as of now the manga is still in it’s 66th chapter so stay tune for upcoming chapters.

Manga Site Recommendation:

I recommend reading either in Mangareader or in Mangafox since I think these sites are the fastest in updating but all other sites are also good.
