In Konohana Kitan, Yuzu is a fox-spirit who abandoned as a kit and was found and raised by a human nun. In order to broaden her knowledge, she works as a caretaker at Konohana-tei, a luxurious hot springs inn at the boundary between the human world and the spirit world, where she has many interesting encounters with visiting gods and spirits.
The original Konohana Kitan manga is serialized in Gentosha’s Monthly Comic Birz seinen manga magazine. Further details about the production (such as the staff, additional cast members, the format, and the release date) have not yet been revealed.
