i am strongly ambivalent so far.

only watching 4 friday shows (including this one) so im sticking with it for a little while to see if it goes anywhere...there's a lot of characters, so it's taking a while to set up...


i give up. i like the cd. i like Mikos generally. i like all-female character shows. if the characters, story, script or animation were any good i might have stuck around but no. dropped it.

Toji no Miko (The Shrine Maiden Swordwielders) EP 3 "Innocent Sword"

That was good / I am kinda tired & behind to do a real summary but Kanami is more adept than I thought !

Our duo has allies too ! When cooking Hiyori reveals her mom was a Toji too and passed away and Kanami says the same

Toji no Miko (The Shrine Maiden Swordwielders) EP 4 "The Burden of Resolution"

Kanami is told by Hiyori their fighting styles are different and Kanami may not to be able to kill anyone and leaves Kanami is about to follow anyhow but has to fight Kohagura and Kaoru whose sword is way oversized for her



Hiyori come back to help but after Kohagura and Kaoru gey S -Equipment meant only for the Military squads Kanami and Hiyori escape and take shelter in an old BLDG Hiyori explains Yukari Origami is an Aradama and took her mothers powers away making her ill to her death

Yukari Origami disparches 3 of her Elite Guards Maki / Suzuka / Yomi to a base ( Who there are after is unclear ) There is hints it may be Kohagura and Kaoru who have S-Gear and may be part of a Rebel Faction in the Military Squads ?

Kanami tells Hiyori her sword is the heaviest meaning she has the most desire but Kanami says she help with that burden.

Man, in just a couple of episodes it's gone from "generic and straightforward" to "woah, let's slow down before you introduce any more protagonists or antagonists".

I really hope this show revamp its story a bit as every episode feels the same so far including this week's.

Hiyori and Kanami can be a formidable duo but they still need a lot to improve. Not really impressed by the rivals they're facing so far. Most of them really like any noticable personalities except perhaps Maki.

I'm excited to see her go all out agaisn't the protagonist. Actions scenes weren't too shabby although I wish the second fight was longer.

Episode 5

What better way to start this episode than with some comedy. Things start off with Erin and Kaoru congratulating Kanami and Hiyori passing the test they were given. We get a funny moment here from Kaoru's pet Nene who jumps to Kanami's chest as it likes girls with big bust. It looks at Hiyori and turns it's head in disgust. Than the group is attacked by a swarm of Aradama and the group is split up. Kanami and Hiyori are attacked by two of the elite guard and by working together they are able to catch Maki off guard and land a blow in order to get away. Meanwhile Karou finds one of the elite guard who is releasing the Aradama by cutting herself and easily defeats her. She runs away and Karou passes out from strain. When it comes to this two battle they were a let down as they ended to quick especially Karou's fight. In the end Erin appears at the elite guards base camp trying to pass off as one of them?

Now that's one hell of a way to use Yomi power...

Jesus Christ, I hope others don't end up like this:

Episode 6

This episode starts off boring when Eren turns herself in but pretends that she does not know whats going on in order to gather information. And it actually works when she gets footage of Yomi injecting herself with something. On the other hand Karou wakes up and catches up to kanami and Hiyori to show them the rest of the way. But Nene worried about Eren wants the girls to head back and save her. It's a good thing they listen because Eren gets into trouble when she tries to get evidence of what Yomi injecting herself with that leads to a fight. Karou arrives just in time to help Eren as Yomi injects herself with more of the substance and grows a horn like Aradama. Together with the help of kanami they put a stop to Yomi and get away in a submarine that Eren calls for.

When it comes to this series there a few things i don't like about mostly some of the characters like Yukina who has such a bad personalty and is such a bitch to everyone. She would use Sayaka to do her bidding just to get on Origami's good side. I can't wait to see Sayaka leave her and join the good side.

Lots of action

Hiyori reluctantly hears them out but then Nene an harmless Aradama is on edge as Hiyori's aritifact warns about Aradama attacking but not E;;en's device which is controlled by the Origami The two groups split up

Kanami and Hiyori escape OK but feel like they are being driven to spots Kanami suggests to Hiyori if you dont trust Ellen / Kaoru jusy use them for now but are attacked by the Elite Guard Maki and Suzuka

Kaoru / Nene are attacked by the Aradamaand Karou rescues Nene after protecting her

The Aradama are coming from Yomi

The not so stable Yume comes into Yukari's ofice and wants to play ataxxking her bit Yukari easily brushes her off Yukari promises she wiil have a better game for her later

Karou is hanging on a cliff well Nene who she remembers is a loyal / caring companion fom her youngerv days when she fell and was lost itbwa ene who guided her back despite her treating him badly

Kanami who is always thinking lets Suzuka be aggresive ony to jump off the cliffand trows her sword at Maki hitting her allowing Kanami and Hiyori to escape

Meanwhile Karou is annoyed that Yomi is some kind of Hybird Aradama degeats her ny almost killing her Ellen arrives at the Ekite Guard's camp ?


Toji no Miko (The Shrine Maiden Swordwielders) EP 6"The Space Between Humans and Disgrace"

The title was just perfect too

Even though silly at times the action / story gets intense at times The Duo of Ellen / Karou is good even apart they stand out Karou is the serious one Ellen allof at times has many skills

Ellen is griiled by Elite Guard Maki and Suzuka who as their eyes flare are Aradama Suzuka is ?? ny Suzuka who knows her parents worked on the S Gear and probally her grandfather who sent the S Gear being kicked out of the compant and being the inventor

Karou takes Kanami and Hiyori to the meeting polint

Yuakari has a undrgroung cavern full of pools that contain Aradama

Maki and Suzuka go after the wandering trio and Ellen locked up breaks free

Yomi is injecting herself with Aradama shots

Ellen had a video camera hidden and sees what Yomi is doing who in fact attacks her Ellen has an enhancer too and the 2 battle with Ellen having a slight edge until Yomi injects herself with an enhancer givin Ellen the hard time in fact running out of power but Karou arrives to take over but first she hit Ellen like a home run with her massive Katana to get her to safety Hiyori joins Karou to fight Yomi a Kanami whisks Ellen away but after hearing about Yomi came back

"Home Run "



Hiyori is disgusted too and drains her power but Yomi has more vitamin "b' shots yikes !!

Yomi is too powerful and knocks down Hiyori / Karou Mari goes to fight but she is knocked down and in grave danger with omi over her but basically Yomi explodes because she took to much enhancers and a streak of flame goes up in the sky Everybody including Yomi is still alive ( passed out )

They need to get away quick so Ellen cals a 'taxi' with Hiyori basically saying WTH it's powered raft and Hiyori says we need serious backup / rescue Ellen goes dont worry and a sub pops out of the water Ellen goes this is the Taxi

Meanwhile back at Sword HQDRS Yukari dimisses the school presidents / isnt mad at Maki and Suzuka in fact has plan already

6 episodes of constant swordplay and yet no one has managed to draw blood once yet.

It's like it wants to be serious but also lighthearted at the same time.

Hopefully it finally settles on a tone and we can get some consistancy.

Do you want it to go full Afro-samurai and see these cute girls getting parts lopped off?

They also explained why there isn't blood drawn. They enter into a form (Utsushi) where some girls can take one or two hits before losing the form. So yes, they can have a limb chomped off, but it doesn't affect the physical body. The manga better explains this. There's only a few chapters in the manga though.
