I decided to check this anime out cos the story sounded kind of interesting but it was mainly the art that captured my attention. The animation seemed very high quality and the character design of the girls kind of remind me of Shizuma from Strawberry Panic! It’s the really pointy noise and dainty looking faces. I seriously find Shizuma very hard to beat on the looks side. *SWOONS* hahahaha
My only complaint about this anime from watching it for a few minutes is their oversized BREASTS!!! *ROLL EYES* Seriously. *sigh* On the whole though, I do like the designs. The soundtrack that played in the opening was promising too. Finally for good measure, there are a tonne of seiyuu that will ring a bell!
- Ami Koshimizu – Nina Wang from Mai Otome, Kanako from Marimite, Holo from Spice & Wolf
- Aoi Yuuki – Alice from Croisee, Madoka from Puella Magi
- Marina Inoue – Natsuru from Kampfer, Matsurika from Maria Holic,
- Miyuki Sawashiro – Maria from Arakawa, Canaan from Canaan!!
- Ai Shimizu – Tamao from Strawberry Panic!
- Mai Nakahara – Nagisa from Strawberry Panic!
- Minako Kotobuki – Mugi from K-ON!
Just a quick reminder before I dive into this post, the key reason why I’m watching this anime is because it has some of my favourite seiyuu!!
- Mai Nakahara ~ she played Nagisa in Strawberry Panic!! She plays Zakuro here – the main character (long hair with bows)
- Aki Toyosaki ~ it’s Yui from K-ON! and here she is Bonbori
- Yui Horie only has a small role here as Hozuki. Yui and Aki actually play the blonde twins so they’re easy to spot. I’m a bit disappointed they didn’t get bigger parts :(
The beginning of the anime had this eerie feel to it which I guess is perfect for a story around youkai but it made me feel a bit hesitant. Yes…I’m a bit of a pansy. -_-” The chanting voices in the background also added an overlay of mythical vibe.
The anime is a story set in a time where you have humans living in a world where spirits exist. Half spirits, such as the girls in question here, look like your average girls but they have cat-like ears on their heads and they possess powers that can kill spirits that have gone astray. Together with three selected from the military, they pair up to take on the challenge of maintaining peace in the community.
