The story of Kanokon revolves around Kouta Oyamada, an innocent and unsuspecting first year high school student who moves from country to the city due to transfering into Kunpō High School.[1][2] Shortly after arriving at the new school, he meets a second year female student, Chizuru Minamoto. Chizuru takes a liking to Kouta, so she invites him to meet her in the music room after classes. When he arrives, she tells him that she loves him and accidentally reveals her true Fox Spirit form.[1] Later into the story, a Wolf Spirit, Nozomu Ezomori, also transfers to Kouta's school and class. From day one, Kouta is getting more and more embarrassed by the acts of Nozomu and Chizuru, and they contend for Kouta's affection.[2]
