This is where you go when you're sick of being here, or would like to expand your research into other areas. So, we've provided a list of links and crap, carefully categorised for easy surfing. We'll also possibly have webrings up at some point
, and hopefully a banner for link exchanging. Keep coming back here, because this page will likely go through a fair amount of growing and modification as we collect more relevant links to add.
These banners where made by the talented Naryu, so that you kind folks who visit this page and like what they see may link back to us. However, we are going to request that you download them and upload them onto your own server, because bandwidth theft makes us pretty fucking cranky. Thank you!
Just what the title says. Here are some common, and maybe not-so-common pages out there on kitsune. Both have good as well as not-so-good qualities--the reason why we're listing them here is for you're own research. Read all the stuff, take it with a grain of salt. Thats what learning is all about. Good luck.
Oinari-sama, diety of foxes and rice - A very informational page on the Japanese and Buddhist diety Inari/Dakiniten, diety of foxes and rice. This page has alot of facts on both the diety as well as the kitsune, with plenty of sources for perusal.
Issendai's Page on Kitsune - Very well researched, even if some of the content is a bit contradictory to what we've read in some of our books. Otherwise, does a fairly good job in dispelling some common (and annoying) myths. Good read, if taken with a grain of salt.
Foxtrot's Page on Kitsune Lore - Yes, the rather notorious page on kitsune that you find cited prettymuch everywhere. It has some good points, though for the most part reads a bit much like an RPG manual. An acceptable read, if taken with a block of salt.
The Kitsune Page - A nice site containing stories, articles and the like, both ancient as well as modern, as well as some media. Even has a partial PDF of Nozaki's work in there.
Kitsune.org - Various odd assortment of information, art, media and other such things.
Troublesome Fox-spirits! - A sort of blurb-thingummer page.
This is basically a list of artists who are either kitsune, yokai or otherwise kitsune or yokai-inspired. Its also a good excuse to plug our friends' art and crap :P Or complete strangers who's art we drool over. Whatever.
Spirit-Fox.com - This is the webpage of Naryu, a fellow kitsune and graphic artist and illustrator. Manhy of her works are kitsune and Shinto-inspired, and reflect alot of her spirituality and her connection with being a kitsune as well.
Inari-Art.com - Another arty page by a kitsune. Sho is a fantabulous artist with some nifty artwork, as well as some cool information on kitsune on his site.
The Drunken Tengu - A very nifty site of Tengu art! CAW CAW! SCREE SCREE!....and all that related bird jazz.
