Looks very interesting, introduction seems similar to Mamoru-kun.

Quote:

A love triangle comedy in the vein of Fruits Basket about a boy named Kouta and the fox and wolf girls that love him!

On the very first day that innocent country boy, Oyamada Kouta, transfers to a city high school, the prettiest girl in school asks him to meet her alone. They meet in the music room, all alone. Her shining hair and entreating eyes! Her flushed cheeks! Her sweet lips! Her...fox tail?!!

Who is this mysterious and alluring girl and just what does she want with unsuspecting Kouta?

I checked the 1st chapter. I love it! :D

Chizuru - the hot and bold 2nd year student/demon fox girl - definitely has the hots for Kouta - the shy and shorty protagonist/transfer 1st year student. She's the one making all the moves. And apparently, she will not be the only one.

It's very funny and ecchi! The poor boy got more than he can handle! That's too much for a first day at a new school... :p

I can't wait for the release date of both - the manga and the anime version!

No one licensed the manga to my knowledge. there are currently 3 volumes of the Kanokon manga released in japan, which I posted their covers in the first post of this thread.

PGilis 2007-11-26 09:35

Oh yeah. Gomanga will be releasing the Light Novel in October/2008, not the manga! What a shame! :(

Anyway, i just hope as soon it will be released, some good fansubber will translate the anime and the manga too.

NeoSam 2007-11-26 10:42

There's also a Kanokon Drama CD :)

Not yet known other than that this show is slated for sometime in 2008. This is one of the shows that I'm eagerly looking forward to.

Hmm... what shounen are you talking about?

Kanokon is a light novel series for boys (shounen = boy). That's what shounen(boy) about it.
