Airing from April 2019 to June 2019 with 12 episodes, The Useful Fox Senko-san (or Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san in Japanese) touched the hearts of its viewers with fantasy parts and feel-good comedy. Episode 12, titled “Still…” brings Senko and Nakano’s relationship to a satisfying finish when Nakano exhibits appreciable indicators of enchancment.

Within the spirit world, fellow kitsune and self-proclaimed “boss” Woman Sora informs Senko that she is not wanted. Nakano has efficiently retained his darkish aura for a substantial size of time, and Senko is subsequently suggested to stop her caretaking duties. Senko recollects a flashback to Kuroto’s ancestor serving to her in a time of want and subsequently feels indebted to him, however Woman Sora reminds her that people aren’t immortal and that she is going to ultimately endure heartbreak with Kuroto.

Regardless of this, Senko returns to Earth and vows to proceed pampering Nakano; she prepares a picnic feast beneath the cherry blossom timber, and Nakano thanks her for watching over him since childhood. In the course of the finish credit, Suzu, Senko’s inferior and presumptive protégé, makes an look with Woman Sora within the spirit world. She appears to carefully resemble Senko however isn’t seen previous to the top credit, leaving viewers to ponder her function.

What Do We Need From A (Potential) The Useful Fox Senko-san Season 2?


It goes with out saying that introducing a brand new character ought to routinely lead on to a different season, however the plot would want to deviate barely for the addition to work. Senko and Kuroto live collectively contently, presumably in some undefined relationship, however are extra than simply carer and affected person. Some hypothesis has arisen in regard to Suzu, who many viewers have assumed is Senko and Kuroto’s daughter, though she is also merely one other of Woman Sora’s kitsune disciples. Both method, her position stays a thriller.

As for Woman Sora, she appears to have some malicious, power-hungry intent hidden beneath her fake kindness, which is especially evident in how she treats Shiro for disobeying her. She has the groundwork laid to turn out to be the principle antagonist, which would definitely throw a spanner within the works. Even Shiro tremendously enjoys the prevalence that she holds over people, which signifies there might be extra to those fox demigods than simply magnificence and fluffy tails.

Furthermore, The Useful Fox Senko-san has revealed barely any particulars as to the kitsune demigods’ origins. We see transient snippets of Senko, Shiro and Woman Sora wielding their magical wisps respectively, however the extent of their talents is but to be seen. As the vast majority of the collection is about on Earth, viewers solely see glimpses of the spirit world, which leaves extra to be desired in that respect as properly. Some backstory for every of the demigods would make for fascinating perception, in addition to including some depth to those established characters.

Some interactions counsel romantic curiosity between the 2 protagonists. Within the remaining scene, Kuroto invitations Senko to “stick together” within the foreseeable future. Senko agrees. If Woman Sora’s warning turns into actuality, Senko will lose Kuroto eternally, however maybe that is exactly the form of sadistic torment {that a} dictating demigod would need. On the time of writing, the collection has but to be renewed, so whereas nothing is for certain, we will make our predictions.

The primary 12 episodes of The Useful Fox Senko-san can be found to stream free of charge with advertisements on Crunchyroll and on Funimation.
