Anyone else feel that the Tanuki/Kitsune pairing should have its own trope page?

Re: Cut

Tanuki IS an accepted english word.Try researching your words before you say that.

It's the actual english name for this mythical creature, the same way Minotaur is greek but is used in English, or Banshee and Irish.

Agreed. There are several examples, and the name is used regularly in English as well.
