Fushimi Inari has a hopeless crush on her classmate Tanbabashi. One day, while trying to interact with him, she accidentally humiliates him in front of the whole class. He refuses to accept her apologies, and, to make matters worse, she discovers that he probably has a crush on their incredibly cute classmate Sumizome.

She has all these things in mind when she is summoned by Uka-no-Mitama-no-kami, a pale fox goddess. In return for rescuing a little fox-spirit creature before school that day, the goddess offers to grant a single wish of Inari's. Without thinking, she blurts out that she wants to be Sumizome. As one might expect, this wish does not go nearly as well as Inari had hoped, and the kindly goddess breaks a goddess-rule to give Inari the ability to change herself back. Now, Inari can change her own shape at will, and using her new skill is very tempting as she keeps trying to win Tanbabashi's heart. But if Inari flaunts her ability, both she and the goddess might end up in trouble with Amaterasu!

Very underrated

Very underrated, what starts out as a fairly cliche plot turns out not to be. I do love a manga with little to no loose ends and it left me with a bitter sweet after taste, I'd most definitely recommend this for everyone.

Typical misunderstand between characters cause complicated relationship and unnecessary confusing shit. If you just take the misunderstand part out, this story would disappear. Also, there're lot of annoying side characters.

On the other hand, the both couples are cute, so if you you just read it for what it is, it could provide you some sweet time. Not recommend for those can't handle shoujo stuff though.

This is a good series. Wouldn't say the best but one of the nice series out there imo.
I only just returned to reading the series today when I realised it was complete, but based on my memory this series is nice and calm with just enough excitement in the story.
The author did a really great job of ending the series. It was sad and sweet and it didn't make me wish for an alternate ending plot. Really enjoyed it.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Although, I do wish for more side stories about the Inari's brother and Uka after the ending, and for the author to also include Uka's brother in them. It would make a really good side story to the ending. Fingers crossed.

Gave it 9/10 because its was one of the good series in my list but in the past I did get this series confused with Gingitsune. Foxes, gods, and girls with slightly similar powers.
If you're looking for a nice story with great character relationships, this is definitely one of the good ones.

This manga series is seriously amazing, it has the cutest pairs, best art, just the right amount of fantasy, light-hearted comedy, and seriously sad parts which have made me cry over 20 times. I love it to the core and my only wish is for the whole series to be updated and scanalated so I can read it all to the end<3

Reading the summary, I totally misunderstood what the story was going to be about. I'm glad I tried the anime though, because this series is surprisingly very nice and charming smile
Pretty funny too, especially them gods acting all silly~
In a way its also a slice-of-life about Japanese Shinto gods lol.
Oh and it also has plenty amount of FEELS! lol. Which is actually quite nice and not the annoying type.

I only read the manga after I finished the anime though, and thank God I did because the manga is a WHOLE lot better than the anime (and the anime was already quite nice). Not to mention, the anime skips a LOT of stuff and changes much of what actually happened in the manga, like the locations and order of events. The anime was also way too short (10 episodes!) and ended way too early with what practically is a cliffhanger.

Highly recommended.
Inari is a sweet and adorable little girl, and Uka-sama is a lovely lady smile

This manga relies on its characters than most stories rely on their plot and that's likely because every character here is special.

You will see characters be introduced, often as a hurdle to 'overcome' and later you and Inari realize that -- just maybe -- that the person you were both writing-off had feelings, too. Within this story you will read of sorcery and sociology, hopefully answering taboos that exist only to crush one's spirit. Is it taboo because you're in love, mustn't you correct the mistakes made in the name of love? What if they won't love me back?

Inari attempts to solve these questions by using other peoples answers, often gaining confidence through someone else in more ways than one. But the more she adopts another's facade she knows less of from whom that confidence is coming from.

When I first saw the synopsis of this series, I thought "Oh great, another child-turned-super hero manga." But as I read each chapter, I became more and more immersed in the heartwarming little girl known as Inari. Each character stand out in their own way, although the story mainly focuses on Inari and Uka's problems. In fact, USING her power seems to create more problems than it solves...

Suffice to say, I find this manga a gem and an adorable read.

A heartwarming and often very funny title about when humans and gods interact. If you're reading the scanlations, be warned that for around the first dozen chapters, the translation becomes pretty appalling, but it's worth pushing on because the quality suddenly rises to pretty much professional level after that (thanks AM!).

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. is definitely not what one would expect from a series about a girl who gains the power to transform into other people. In fact, it's not about the transformations at all. It's about how Inari (the main character) grows and develops as she learns not to rely on this ability to help her in difficult situations. It's really an unbelievably adorable series.

All the characters are fairly strong on their own, though, arguably, everyone other than Inari remains largely static. Understandable, really, since the entire series is about Inari's growth.

Would I recommend this series to everyone? Yes, of course. Is it for everyone? No, I don't think so. If you come into this manga expecting a lot of flashy transformations, misunderstandings galore, and caricature villains, you'll be disappointed. At its heart, Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. is really a slice-of-life series that's more character-focused on plot-focused. But that's what I like about it, really.

Dreading where this is going

Liked the first chapter, but was frustrated that there the transformation element was soon neglected. (I've seen this in Ranma 1/2 and Gatcha Gatch Secret, but my guess is the author ran out of ideas almost immediately after deciding to write a story about a girl who shifts forms. So we end up with a plot thread that just eats up virtual space since you keep wondering when there will be a shift, only it never happens.) Also the main character and her crush are boring people, and I stopped reading their conversations. The only thing that kept me reading to ch 20 was curiosity about the Goddess's slow as molasses relationship with someone that reminds me of CardCaptorSakura's brother. Yes they're both stock characters, but they're still funner to watch than the main story and it leaves you wondering if they should have been the focus of this work.

Overall its obvious the story could have been executed much better, and I saw a lot of missed chances for character elaboration or better drama...jokes for instance that only had two panels rather than 3 or more. There is also no antagonist and the series just limps along unsure of where its going...

In fact, I'm expecting a dreaded ending of the type where "the protagonist loses her memories of it all," to come any time now. Authors use it when they want drama, but are creatively bereft or have written themselves into a corner, and want to stop beating their head against the wall. They would rather reset everything at the end and make everything you read meaningless, than write a solution to the story. Also known as the screw-the-reader ending? I really wish Japanese authors didn't have a propensity for this type of ending, and Buddhism must be a deep influence. (I hope this direction isn't followed, but then again I never enjoyed Buddhist reincarnation in stories either, since if it doesn't allow you to keep your old memories, writing about a person's past is meaningless.) If I knew the author I'd try to convince him that this forshadowed ending is a lame cop-out, and ask him to please not give us a ending such as from the manga Karin.

The transitions were also pretty quick with sloppy time-skips, and more than once I had to stop reading to figure out where we were chronologically, or what just happened. I didn't care about most of the characters and the jokes stopped being as funny early on (I blame it on the lack of "follow-through" in the writing, although maybe it was also the translation.?) Add the fact that many characters are so simply differentiated that its easy to mix them up, and you have a recipe for confusion.

No transformation, suspicious foreshadowing of a crappy ending, light character development, and awkward transitions keep me from recommending this series to others. If you'd like to satisfy your curiousity just treat the 1st chapter as an interesting one-shot.
