Five Tailed by Widdershins-Works Five Tailed by Widdershins-Works
I recently watched a Korean animation; Yobi, the five tailed fox and it was amazing and very inspirational to make a bit of fan work of the show.
I highly recommend to watch the movie as well it was really touching and great one. ( [link] )


I really hate to make fan works personally so very rare when I actually really do, but this one was one of those which just worth my time and the efforts. )

I loved this movie a lot.
I had my moment of checking all anime/movie/serie which had fox related subject in it be kitsune or just simple fox and from many very bad ones this was a bright spot with amazing story and great atmosphere so I did feel the need of draw fanart honoring it!

The other one I loved was the plague dogs but that one is really dark and deep and.. kind of sad. I may do fanart of that one as well it worth one for sure!

This is wonderful. I finished watching the movie a few hours ago and I searched up the movie to see fan arts or scenes re drawn and I found this. This is the best drawing I found of the movie.

I didn't like the ending though.

It depends from which side you looking it actually. I really loved the ending game it had depth in it and the result of it was a moment which was needed to win justice to the sacrifice.

[Spoiler ahead]

But in other hand the result was disappointing on a different way especially that it was kinda a restart the way a common human just not waits from a tale "become a human while you are something fantastic" not why some people want to watch a tale. But as the common gumiho/kitsune stories all talk about that they want to become a human it gives justice to that part.


Even though this fact can be understood many-many ways. The legends and fandom around these mythological foxes grew pretty strong and people not want to imagine that these creatures rated lower then human beings overall, regarding the thing why they would want to become one if they have amazing powers to possess and skills and immortality, yet they seeking to be a "common human" which surely looks less "powerful" then what them.


To cut it short, the much I loved the ending the much I despise it in the same time. But this was that ending what made the movie a bit remarkable, it can puzzle people a bit. )

Yeah,I guess I respect it since I've never really had an unhappy-ish ending I've liked.But I think the reason I didn't like it was that there was no follow-up. :D I just like wondering what happens.

I also not really seen much fanart around which makes my case easier since I really despise what fanbase can do with a movie, book or others and makes me absolutely not want to join the line in such cases. It just spoils me (

That part was the reason why the movie got that deep characteristic and would say worth to watch every minute. Because it reached you and caused a feel you could recall even after you already watched the movie )

"This fanciful animated adventure tells the story of Yobi, a magical shape-changing fox of Korean legend. Yobi is 100 years old - aged by human standards but just a kid by those of her own species. When aliens crash land in Yobi's woods, she befriends them as they toil to repair their spaceship, but eventually, a group of children discover the creatures and capture one of them. Yobi must pose as a human girl in order to steal her way into the group and rescue her alien friend, but the price of her ruse may eventually mean capturing the soul of someone she loves. ~ Cammila Albertson, Rovi"

Yes x3...the kumiho originally eats the liver from humans in order to become a human so they kind of went a bit away from that in the movie. But it still followed the old korean tale a bit.

It depends, there are many directions of eastern fox spirits, I think it was a bit of mixture of gumiho and inari stories.
The fact it is about souls a bit stands closer to me since my demon foxes I work with and my art muses over my arts also working more with souls then livers. )

I understand and that is true that it was probably a mixture of the korean and japanese tales. I love both foxes and mythology from all cultures.
