Wagaya no Oinari-sama is a Shinto-based modern tale. I'm afraid subbers will surely have some difficulty in the terminology and concepts.
don't worry about that, it depends on who picks up the translations. Shinto based anime/shows have been subbed before. And Certain subbing groups are quite aware of Shinto terminologies and concepts.

Yeah, and besides there are sites for this kind of thing

With the studio of Rental magica behind this. I have faith that it can be good. I wasn't a huge fan of Rental Magica but I didn't hate it.

And yeah I'm also one of the people drooling over the male side female side seiyu for Kugen.
I like how the trailer shows both sides introducing each other. Yeah I know it's cliche in some ways but it's still awesome.

yeah, this anime will be decent if not good. The novel was an excellent read so the anime shouldn't be too bad if the animator stick to the material.

It's not precisely a novel concept. See Ranma 1/2, Tetsuwan Birdy. Those were even licensed in the US, so there's little chance of you missing them if you watched at least some classic anime.

I for one think the novel concept here is having Yukana do the female voice. Well, at least that's what my ears want to think

I was hoping thinking that this series would be a romance/comedy/action series, but apparently it does not look very romancey from the promo and the half guy/girl concept lol

he forgot what gender did he have when he took human form thats all :P

he's/she's a demon/youkai so gender isn't really that critical for them,
my guess is that in the end they would find out that he didn't have any "real" gender to begin with..

ironically the novel is considered an romance/comedy/action series since all three are present. That you don't have to worry about.

Kugen is in fact so forgetful of his gender that he doesn't even remember the gender he took on two or three days ago. He is so used to both genders that he takes them on randomly and act totally at ease in each gender identity that its scary( especially when he changes gender on the fly). But being ancient and wise he does know when to switch gender if appropriate(such as female form when he needs to seduce or cry her way in/out of a sticky situation or to take on the male form for the Mano-a-mano Macho situations). However in the novel i believe he is referred to as her by majority of the main cast as he does take on the female form more often.

Thats good to hear! I find anime more intriguing that have those element.

He/she was once a living fox, so he/she had a sex whichever. Tenko [天狐] is a honorable title for a fox who has lived more than a thousand years and got the status as a messenger of the Inari.

My opinion is pretty much the same as serenades. Not too high comedy in the first episode.
Spoiler for episode 1:

The big thing about this show is Hayami Saori 早見沙織, who plays Kou, the young priestess. Remember the name. She is only 16, but is already an excellent seiyuu, in the roles she has had (Momoka in Touka Gettan and this). Her voice as Kou is as pure and certain as a drop of water falling in a pond in the forest.

And her singing of the ED makes her the best of all current seiyuu/singers, for me, with a sweetness and musicality that are amazing. This is fully as good as her outstanding ED to Touka Gettan. The only thing that could stop her becoming a top seiyuu is becoming a top singer first. And she is already signed by Columbia.



As for the show itself, I love the simple, pure character design, and I thought Yukana showed many aspects of her excellent voice. The story was simple and we see the possibility of future humor after this introductory episode. But this kind of story doesn't usually interest me, so we'll see what happens from here. One thing I know: I wanted to see this show for Hayami Saori, and she was outstanding.

She did do a very good job for momoka imo. I didn't realise that she was younger than me, now that is something. Getting more interested about this series now

Oh right. I forgot that Hayami Soari was playing in this! She is very gpood as Kou, deadpan and cute.
Also there's Nakamura Yuuichi who is playing male Kugen. And it really surprised me how well Yukana's and his voices parallel each other (both have a similar level of deepness)

Mah, for now, enjoy the previews/summaries of episodes 2-4. Yeah, don't know what they are thinking putting the previews for so many future episodes, but then again, H2O did this.
