Nakano is an ordinary guy, an employee of a company. The work completely absorbed the guy, so he has no privacy, no rest, no health. Day after day, Nakano goes to the office on the first train, intercepts food while on the run, and rushes home late at night, barely having time for the last transport.
Exhausted by the daily routine, not imagining another life and not paying attention to his deteriorating health, Nakano is completely exhausted. But one day, when he came home, in his apartment, he discovered a little fox – Senko, who was in charge of the house. Despite its small size, the girl-fox was 800 years old, and she appeared in the life of the main character for one purpose: to make him healthy and happy.
Now, in the Nakano house, it always smells of freshly prepared food, all clothes are torn and smoothed, the apartment is cleaned and everything literally shines. But the task of the fox is not as simple as it seems at first glance. It is necessary to find a common language not only with Nakano, who was unfriendly tuned in to the new roommate, but also with his neighbors who are not used to the noise made by Senko. Will the kitsune descending from heaven cope with the task and what will Nakano have to go through in order to become happy again?
Anime main characters

- Anime directed by Tomoaki Koshida. His bright works are: “Tada Never Falls in Love” and “Working!!”.

Moreover, such people are not able to resist the difficulties and do not want to change anything. According to the director, this is typical of the current young generation.
