Ayakashi Kan: a mysterious condominium, widely believed to be haunted, where every resident is required to have a personal bodyguard, or secret service agent. When the socially inept Ririchiyo moves in, all she's looking for is a little peace and quiet and some practice at inter-personal communications. However, she quickly discovers that her bodyguard Soushi might not just be foxy; he might actually be a fox- a fox spirit that is. In fact all of Ayakashi Kan's residents, and their agents, are more than they seem at first glance: each and every one of them has both human and non-human ancestors. But that's okay, because Ririchiyo does too!

An enjoyable rom com with some supernatural elements. Who doesnt love a kitsune?
The two main characters are wonderful and I found that I really appreciated the heroine having social problems because it made her feel more real. You also get to learn more about Miketsukami's mysterious past towards the end of the series which was really well done. It does have a happy ending as well, which is really nice. Overall its a short and very enjoyable show. SADIST! MASOCHIST! (watch it and see what I mean).

Inu X Boku: Secret Service: (Japanese anime; Entire Series; Episodes 01-13): There were multiple ESTs. Each EST was based more or less on one character and their personality. I liked watching the multiple ESTs. In the DVD Extras section when watching the ESTs, I thought it a nice way to summarize the behaviors of each character and the entire series.
Animation: Seemed as if it might be modernly advanced in emotional and interactive approaches to living life. Two styles of animation were used: normal drawn style and cute cartoon drawn style.
Voice Acting: I liked both Japanese and English audio-tracks.
English Audio/Written Script: Good. However, I did get somewhat confused at times as to what I was experiencing from IXB:SS.
Characters: Relatable? Intimate relationships/bonds established. IXB:SS seems to be about paying attention to other people, and about getting to know them. Wide range of characters, each with their own unique outer levels of persona… such as main character girl, Ririchiyo, who hides her feelings and is hostile toward others as a front; however, she soon afterwards regrets that she says such insipid thoughts aloud. For the most, most characters maintain their consistent temperaments and traits. I had thought and felt Kagerou’s “Are you a Sadists or Masochist” episodes to be both baffling and funny. IXB:SS centers mostly around one person, a young teenage girl named Ririchiyo; Ririchiyo’s intimate thoughts are known to us listeners. I had wished Metsuketsu, fox boy, would have shown more of his inner side, but that did not come until episode 10. I can’t recall any of their names too well. I would have wanted and wished that their names be in the bottom of the screen as subtext. Ririchiyo’s inner feelings get shown to us viewers, via the viewing fourth-wall being blackened-out and then there appearing amidst the blackness a series of written white Japanese characters running downward to represent her inner feelings for her personal secret service dude, her dog boy, her retainer, Soushi. Metsuketsukami (aka: dog boy) and Kagerou are of the same cloth. Miketsukami plays as one of purity, but he really is a dirty and perverted F-Tard.
Feelings and Tinkering Thinking Thoughts: I had liked IXB:SS but was confused for most of the episodes up until Soushi, fox boy, revealed his real intentions and hidden agenda. Perhaps surprising to some, IXB:SS gets too close to said everyday life, to everyday banality for me. I need more literal canvases on the video monitor to where characters can jump into wild, tangible, foreign worlds… in other words I at times really need someone to literally paint me a picture of going into worlds rather than have someone talk about worlds that each one of us has thru social thoughts and feelings. Thought processes and feelings were centered upon in IXB:SS. This series seemed to be drama and dialogue based; there rarely was if ever a powerful fight scene as like one might find in the “Bleach” or “Disgaea” or “Dragonball Z”. As regarding the sign that said, “no talking”, I liked that miming bit; so when characters wanted to say something, they had to try to mime it to one another even though they couldn’t understand one another. Could have sworn I heard some Earthbound (video game) music. IXB:SS had strong and unique personalities. Kagerou is the life of the party with his sadism and masochism philosophies and him calling everyone, “human toilets.” I felt IXB:SS embodied some elements of Disgaea and Mana Khemia rpg vd games. Additionally, some Bleach, Inuyasha, and Ranma. I felt fairly uncomfortably and roughly rightly confused throughout the watching of IXB:SS. I do not know whether I was over-thinking the things that happened, or thinking to the right capacity, or not thinking at all. I dunno. Also, isn’t it fun to be a deviant? It’s the only natural thing in this life to do, right? Rating: 4.2/5.0; Xandor Who

This series was really fun with lots of great characters! I loved watching how all the different characters evolved throughout the series and I am planning on reading the manga series for this as well.

The Shirakiin house's daughter, Shirakiin Ririchiyo, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named "Ayakashi Kan." In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit. (From
