Rating: Wonderful!
A wonderful modern adaptation of a Korean fairy tale.
La-on has lost it's 9 tails. La-on is a Korean gumiho - a nine tail fox. It arrives in modern Korea and eventually befriends a depressed writer working for a gossip magazine. While the writer pursues bizarre stories for the magazine (and deals with the bizarre employees of the magazine), La-on tags along and finds clues to missing tails. There are mysteries about the disappearance of the writer's girlfriend, the whereabouts of the gumiho's tails, and, by the way, is the gumiho male or female?

The story is funny and depressing, outrageous and frightful. The art is inspired, conveying the crazy nature of everyone involved.
