Wow, this was absolutely amazing. First off, I thought this was going to be a Shoujo anime, which is why I didnt bother watching the first episode until now, but it turns out its a comedy and other genres. And I cant say this enough but, it was fantastic! I mean really, none of the guys were overzealous about themselves, all the girls are just cute as all get out, and the whole atmosphere of this anime is just.....just so refreshing. I seriously think that its impossible to dislike any character that was shown in this show so far.

Heres a synopsis: he series is set in the Meiji period of an alternate version of Japan, where normal humans and yōkai co-exist. To maintain harmony between the two races, the government has set up a Ministry of Yōkai to deal with any problems that occur. The staff consists of both humans and yōkai, as well as Zakuro, who is half-human and half-yōkai.

I am truly impressed by this show. I love how all the guys each have their own female partner (And probably their love partner). So that means we get to see different personalities in this show to keep it fresh. Man I really am impressed, I feel so ashamed at passing this up in the beginning because I thought it was going to be another shoujo.

If this show never did any battle scenes whatsoever, I would love it all the same. I would gladly just see all the characters go around and do what they normally do everyday.

Anyway talk about the anime, the episodes, anything in general.

I seriously cant make up my mind what anime this season I am looking forward to most. God those twins were adorable.....they looked like that one girl....from Honey and Clover I think....so that was definitely a plus for me

I guess if your a fan of romance, cute characters, a great variety of personalities in your romance animes, and like a fantasy feel to it, then this anime should be perfect for you

Edit: Also, due to the animes setting, they could totally make this show go on forever if they wanted to. There isnt a school setting for the anime to be restricted with....which is how the average anime is.....heck there isnt ANYTHING that could restrain the number of episodes for this anime.......unless if the last episode ends with all of them kissing or something......then I guess seeing episodes after that could be a little....less anticipation-ish?

I liked it overall, though I can't say I liked the fights so far. That was my only dislike, it was kinda weird to watch. Otherwise the character style are good as was mentioned. I will have a better opinion after a few episodes I'm sure.

I also do find the blond guy amusing: guess we'll have to see what becomes of his character.

I know! Its so great! I kinda melted on the inside when I heard Yui's voice in that manner. God I am SO GLAD you convinced me to watch this.
I wish I could explain why I like this series better, I mean to have multiple male leads, to have visually attractive characters, to just have that nice atmosphere. This anime kinda gives me a nice Slice of Life feeling, which is an awesome feeling, but in a fantasy world. And those little tiny fangs on Zakuro totally sealed the deal for cuteness with me

I wonder how deep the fighting in this show is going to go

Maybe because it was the first episode, but it bored me. I had to fast forward through most of it. The animation is pretty, the characters are pretty, but nothing that wowed me.

The plot kind of reminds me of Saiyuki, but with a few twists. Other than that, I give it a 4/5.

During the part where Agemeki was scared to death and walking down the hall, I couldnt tell at first if the girl in the same hallway was Zakuro or Hotaru xD Figured it was Hotaru since it seemed like she was lovestruck with Agemeki, didnt even think Zakuro was going to fall that deep for him. And thats another reason why I love this show, we already have the Tsundere fall for him on the first episode

Edit: My god I cant stop listening to the Opening of this anime, its so freaking catchy. This anime just keeps moving up on its awesome factor everytime I rewatch it

I'm kind of there, like all frosting and no cake ... though I didn't fast forward, but then 'm an old fogey so I prolly have a higher boredom threshold.

Hopefully the tension between humans and spirits will drive a bit more plot than showed up in the first episode.

Episode 2 was neat. Got to see a little bit more drama between spirits and humans. Agemaki has a rival, and we see Sir Ganryu can actually tell the difference between the two.

I wouldnt be surprised if leitenant Hanadate or w/e his name is turns out to be the masked guy in the Opening and Ending. I mean the masked guy is blonde so.....hes the only one who could fit the bill. Unless its a character we havent seen yet

And I guess Zakuro needs the other 3 girls in order to fight. It seems if they werent there she wouldnt be able to fight. I guess you can picture them as her power supply.

Ep was pretty great :)
Those 2 knotroot (:P) twins were so very cute when they were sleeping head to head :D
It`s not hard to tell the diffrence between them, just listen to the voice :P

I love how they sing when Zakuro fights, very unique and very lovely
