Foxtrot's Research on Kitsune Lore  

Kit LaHaise has written a nice introduction to kitsune mythology. He draws heavily from the book, Kitsune: Japan's Fox of Mystery, Romance, and Humour  by Kiyoshi Nozaki tsune.

He covers  the various types of kitsune, famous kitsune from legends, kitsune magic, and stories of possession and spiritual vampirism. An effort is made to separate the real folk beliefs from modern interpretations.

cool. i need to learn more about shippou/kitsune... tho i'm surprised i'm not more drawn to his character as an adult. i've just started to think about that for Myths, though. I think he's going to play a more important role in Inu's character development than I'd thought originally, so now i have to care. this site may help... .wehn i get a chance to check it out.

and i'm playing with my new icon when i should be going to work (made by ushitora_icons)...... matches your background too!

I think it's interesting that kitsune and dogs are traditionally enemies in a lot of old stuff. If I remember correctly a dog can protect against an evil kitsune.

The assocation between both kitsune and the guardian dog statues at temples with a "tama" is also pretty cool.

I've got another site with a lot more stuff buried somewhere among the links. It's hard to find stuff that's accurate with all the anime fans posting stuff that's pure fantasy.

Almost a year since you posted this. It is amazing what Google can find. Thanks for the link to my page, and the nice words. But I'm a guy. ;D

Oops! I'll correct it at once.
