Anime kitsune represents a wide variety of animals in its shows and movies. Sometimes even imaginary beings from popular folklore or legends can be seen in anime. One of the staples and common animals which we do encounter in an anime is a fox or Anime kitsune. Yup, from fox girls to fox boys, to actual foxes. Continue reading to know more about anime kitsune.
So, why not take a look at some of the anime kitsune foxes out there. Here is the list of top anime foxes ever. The list includes both anime boys and girls. So, which anime kitsune are you?
1. Inuyasha, Inuyasha (2000)
Inuyasha is the protagonist and the titular character of the anime series ‘Inuyasha’. Some of you guys might be cursing me right now and I do think your point is valid.
After all, Inuyasha is a dog demon, not a fox demon. But come on, let it slip, please.
He is a great character and well dogs actually came from the Anime kitsune family after being bred by humans, so technically his ancestor may have been an Anime kitsune.
Anyways, coming to his birth his mom is a normal human but his father is the dog demon whose Anime kitsune attributes he inherited.
Kagome asks him to help her find all the shards of the scattered jewel to prevent them from being used, by evil people.
2. Anime kitsune Kurama, Naruto
Kurama is one of the nine-tailed demons from the ninja-themed anime kitsune series ‘Naruto’. He is commonly referred to as Kyuubi or nine-tailed Anime kitsune.
Humans have always feared the power of Kurama and have considered him a mindless, merciless monster that destroys everything in its path.
Thus, he has been sought and captured many times to be used as a weapon in wars. This has made him despise and hate humans.
His current Jinchuriki is Naruto the protagonist and titular character of the series.
Kurama at first hates Naruto and wants him to be consumed by a rage so that he can surface and wreak havoc but during ‘Naruto: Shippuden’ we see him bond with Naruto who asks his name.
From then onwards they have been quite close friends.
3. Sajin Komamura, Bleach (2004)
Sajin Komamura is an important member of the soul society and is quite powerful when it comes to Bankai.
His Bankai is the largest. I mean why wouldn’t it be? He himself is the tallest and largest character in ‘Bleach’ after the giant gatekeepers.
Komamura is also the captain of the 7th squad in the soul society. His appearance is that of an Anime kitsune or wolf.
I guess it’s a mixture of both. His fur is red.
Initially, we see him very conscious of his canine appearance but in the latter part of the series, he is seen without any helmet or gloves which used to be a staple part of his uniform.
He was close friends with Tosen who betrayed him and the soul society by joining Aizen.
4. Yoko, Inukami! (2006)
Yoko is one of the main characters from the Anime kitsune series ‘Inukami!’.
‘Inukami!’ follows Kawahira Keita who wants to be a demon tamer. But to be a demon tamer you need to at least tame one demon, right?
But our protagonist has failed to do that. He hasn’t even tamed a single demon yet. This has made his family treat him as a disappointment.
Yoko is one day encountered by Kawahira who thinks that she would be an easy target. He can easily catch her and tame her which would enable him to regain his honor.
But it is easier said than done. Yoko is one problematic Inukami whom no demon tamer has been able to tame. Also, Yoko is actually an Anime kitsune, not an Inukami which gave her a spot on this list.
