Another light novel entitled Inukami Special Edition was only released as a promotional gift for the animated film.\n\nThe word inukami (\u3044\u306c\u304b\u307f) appears to be a corruption of the word inugami (\u3044\u306c\u304c\u307f), a type of Japanese spirit that literally means \"dog god\". The only difference between the two words is the lack of a dakuten in \"inukami\".
