–– Story ––
*Gingitsune* is a heartfelt shrine fantasy depicting the bonds between the hearts of humans and gods. At a small Inari shrine in a certain city, the main character, an heiress named Makoto, lives with her father, the priest of the shrine, and she is the only one who can see the shrine’s “familiar” (a messenger used by the gods), a fox named Gintarō. Gintarō possesses the wondrous abilities of being able to slightly see the near future and find lost items, but he has no intention of using them, and he has a foul mouth to boot. However, Makoto is curious about him and tries to befriend him. With this Inari shrine as its setting, the story will depict Makoto as she comes in contact with various people. Welcome to the shrine of the gods.
