    Episode 1

    My roommate is a fox.

    Kuroto live a stressful life as he's working around the clock everyday and is getting burned out by it. But luckily for him, the gods are well aware and they send Senko over to relax him, and she is making quite a difference in his life already. He had to skip meals for his work, but like a good housewife, Senko has dinner ready for him. And feeling her fluffy tail sure did relax him in a way only a cute pet can do. That was pretty cute to see the way Senko was providing for him as this certainly does a nice job in filling the void that My Roommate is a Cat left. And that first person segment at the end adds a very nice touch there to get a taste of the hospitality Kuroto receives from Senko.

    So with that, trial rules apply, but after an enjoyable first episode chances are it will stick.

      Episode 2

      Giving him an earful.

      After another long day at work, Nakano comes home to an apartment cleaned up by Senko, and he gets his ear cleaned, all while getting to touch her ears. Of course, things got quite noisy and with his neighbor always at home, she's taking notice seeing that she's used to it being quiet next door. And seeing that Nakano could not live with the thought of having his cute little roommate sleeping on the floor that instead Senko comes over to sleep in the same bed. Nakano sure is dealing with a handful, but it comes with the added perk of having a much better outlook in life, something he never realized before she entered his life. Next time, the neighbor is going to get involved as she's a manga artist and she's wondering just what's going on as it was never this noisy.

        Episode 3

        On a tail and a cosplayer.

        Here comes the next door neighbor Koenji, and she has taken quite a liking to Senko as she's a college student and an aspiring manga artist. She doesn't realize that Senko is not cosplaying and that those ears and tail are the real deal. And then Senko and Nakano go shopping for groceries in the supermarket, and Senko is simply amazed at what can be bought there. Of course, knowing how things were 800 years ago gives her that idea. Nevertheless, those two sure are getting to know each other well.

          Episode 4

          Technology is not for everyone.

          As hard-working as Nakano is, even he needs to take a break, and Senko made sure of that by using her tail so that he would snooze through the day and wake up when it's too late to get to the office. Senko's tail sure is an effective way of making sure that Nakano relaxes at a time when he shouldn't be working. And then Senko is having all sorts of trouble using all the machines and appliances around the apartment as Nakano should have told her how to use them. The AC is turned way up, the TV is just too loud, the vacuum cleaner doesn't turn off, the rice cooker isn't cooking, and all sorts of other things happen seeing that Senko has been doing things the old-fashioned way. Quite a hilarious episode that was seeing that technology is just too much for this fox, but thankfully there's the circuit breaker as that kicked in to put a stop to this madness. Next time, one of Senko's companions is coming over to the apartment.

            Episode 5

            Come on in, the water's fine.

            Here comes Shiro, and she's somebody Nakano can't help but to pet after seeing this fox's tail. While Shiro thinks Senko is not doing the job, she's just too frightened to do anything about it. That was quite funny to see that Koenji thinks that she's hallucinating after seeing Shiro suddenly appear from the wall. And then the two have a bath together as Senko just wouldn't take no for an answer. The tail might have shrunk in the bath, but it's back to its normal size after it has a chance to dry out, so there's nothing he needed to worry about there. Senko just continues to serve Nakano well seeing that he's not as needy as Senko thinks he is, and Shiro sure did make her presence known, though she's not exactly what Nakano needs.

              Episode 6

              Miss Koenji's fox maid.

              Shiro is pretty good at video games seeing that she never really played them until now, and those were some pretty amusing references there, from the Super Mario parody to one of Super Smash Bros on the PS4. But the reason why Shiro is so good is because she can read Nakano's mind. And then Koenji's background is explained a bit as she's a college student and a mangaka. Given how much she loves Senko that it's only natural for her to dress her up in that maid outfit. That was another great episode there as those fox girls sure are getting into this kind of stuff that didn't exist hundreds of years ago.
