I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.
Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser. –Wikipedia
If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.
