Seen Yu Yu Hakusho or Inu x Boku or Naruto and wondering - what's up with those foxes? This is a presentation-style overview of foxes in lore, how some foxes are thought of as messengers of Inari Okami, and an overview of Shinto and Inari faith as well to give context to the already rich tradition of stories that manga and anime draw upon.
