''Wagaya no Oinari-sama.'', which translates to ''Our Home's Fox Deity. '', is a LightNovel series by Jin Shibamura, with illustrations by Eizō Hōden. It was given the anime treatment by Creator/{{ZEXCS}}, which ran for 24 episodes in the Spring of 2008.

Tooru Nakagami, being the heir of the Mizuchis, is about to become a [[WeirdnessMagnet major target]] for demons, ghosts, specters, and other otherworldly things. So, when Tooru and his brother Noboru visit their grandmother way out in the country, Tooru finds himself with a bodyguard in the form of Kuugen Tenkou, a fox spirit entrusted to the family. A sentinel from the shrine, Kou, comes along with them back to their city, where trouble follows them. ''Wagaya no Oinarisama'' has a focus on the supernatural, but the likable cast interacting in (or trying to get used to) today's world is a great source of fun as well.

* LovePotion: Kuu makes one for Sakura in episode 21, and has her drink some, while giving the rest to Noboru. She tells her that this would help him to notice the good things about her. Although the potion was actually a hypnosis spell designed to have her protect him in case of danger, Kuu later comments that it only worked because Sakura cares about him deeply.

Added DiffLines:

** In the first one, during episode 12, things go over fairly smoothly until the very end, [[spoiler:when a little girl drains Toru's powers.]]
** During the second one, in episode 20, several characters make justifiable reasons not to go (Noboru's dad ran out of vacation time, Toru didn't want a repeat of the first trip happening again, and Kou decides to stay behind to protect him), so Kuu and Noboru are the only ones who go. And in contrast to the first inn they visited, this one is very run down and looks to be on the verge of bankruptcy. [[spoiler:All of the things the staff did turned out to be false, such as a girl haunting a cave, the girl seen outside a second floor window, and a landslide that blocked the road preventing access to the inn.]]

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binb%C5%8Dgami Binbogami]], or god of poverty, shows up in episode 19 during Halloween. Ebisu is worried about it, because that means he'll take good fortune away from people and give them misery instead. So he makes a contest out of it, promising to give a lot of money to whoever captures and brings him back. In the end Noboru "wins" because he unknowingly gave the god a small gift when he was chaperoning little kids for trick or treating.



** In episode 19, Noboru takes kids out trick or treating, while Kuu and Ebisu's two guardians are roasting some sweet potatoes. Meanwhile Ebisu gathers some people and tells them whoever can catch the "binbogami", or god of poverty, he'd give them 100,000...[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnamese_%C4%91%E1%BB%93ng dong]], which was about 700 yen.



* FoodAsBribe: Used a couple of times on Ebisu's two guardians by Noboru, Toru, and even Kuu.



* {{Greed}}: Ebisu, the local god of the land the story mostly takes place on, runs on this trope. He runs a convenience store at the base of the steps leading into his temple, and tries to come up with ways to make money, such as trying out pizza delivery.
* HalloweenEpisode: Episode 19.



* TraumaticHairCut: Kuu is forced to chop off part of her hair to give to Ebisu as punishment for casting the Spirit Passing spell in episode 5. This has some far reaching implications into the next few episodes as well. However, it's a small price to pay considering he wanted her left arm initially but settled for her hair instead. However, it's grown back by around episode 8.

* WhatTheHellHero: In episode 19, Ebisu promises 100,000 to whoever brings back the god of poverty to him. Several townsfolk look around, but are unable to find him. Then Noboru unknowingly brings him back and wins it. Except he won 100,000 Vietnamese dong, which was worth about 700 yen, which is what the people thought Ebisu meant. He tries to justify it by saying he said "dong", but said it in such a way that it was very easily misunderstood. They are understandably angry at him as a result.
