Slice of life anime series that feature strange and unusual creatures are becoming more and more popular these days. Can you blame them? These odd couplings tend to give you the best view at an unusual life that somehow mirrors our own perfectly. The Helpful Fox Senko-san is one of many in this genre to show us just how great life could be with an odd fox girl that only wants to help; if that is indeed what she's doing. The salaryman, Nakano, lived a relatively boring life full of nothing but work and exhaustion before Senko-san came into his life. Now, she's made it her mission to take care of him however she can, which will typically end in humorous antics you can only imagine. 

Thankfully, there are plenty of series with a similar premise that will definitely fill you with joy to watch. Shows like Konohana Kitan are full of fox girls, if that's your primary focus while showing us what the spirit world is like. Other popular titles, like Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, show how the supernatural and unreal may just fit into your everyday life more than you could have ever imagined. With so many great titles to choose from, it's hard to know where to start. 

Here are thirteen recommendations for anime like The Helpful Fox Senko-san that are sure to delight. Vote up for your favorite series!

Her first target is a seafood restaurant run by the Aizawa sisters, Eiko and Chizuru, who both are not the least bit amused by her act.
