Plot Summary


Matoi Sumeragi, a second-year junior high school student, works part-time as a shrine maiden at Tenman Shrine in the city of Kamaya. Her close friend Yuma Kusanagi is part of the family of the shrine's chief priest, and is a candidate to be the successor shrine maiden. One day, Matoi and Yuma walk from the school to the shrine as usual, but when they arrive, they are greeted by the shrine's now damaged grounds, and Yuma's parents have both collapsed from their wounds. Matoi's father Shingo, a police detective, launches an investigation, and he comes upon a man who does not seem entirely sane, his only witness. When he holds down the man, Yuma begins the ritual of Divine Possession. Something strange then happens, not with Yuma, but with Matoi. Matoi Sumeragi, who had only wanted a normal, peaceful life, takes the role of a god, and gains the power to banish evil spirits.

Unless I'm wrong, I guess this is a TAN exclusive since it's supposing to be streaming on it right now and CR hasn't made an announcement on it yet. Well have fun discussing everyone.

The first episode is up on TAN now. This episode is free to everybody, but subsequent episodes are probably going to be subscriber only. At least that's how they have worked in the past. So far, it does not appear anywhere else at the moment.

Episode 1

I just love that English in the beginning. So it begins with life as usual at the shrine where Matoi and Yuma are doing miko training. Matoi's father is a detective, and her master is quite the pervert with the way he tries to get a good look at Luciela. But Matoi's life has turned upside down with the appearance of the a zombie that only a Fatima can defeat, and thus, the beginning of the sacred slayer. That was a pretty good way to begin this, and then comes the wardrobe malfunction at the end that was funny.

And this is exactly what Matoi didn't want happening to her as she now was a big load to shoulder in all this madness.

It seems this is also on Hulu. Presumably it will be the same with other Sentai licenses this season:

Watching this, I thought it was adapted from an old manga series or something because of the style and humor. Was surprised to see it's an original anime @-@

Episode 1

I think the show has promise. Well for starters, it has a serious vibe to it despite my initial impressions of the character designs. Hopefully we'll find out more details about spirits soon and maybe a bit more of background story about the main girls.

The music is impressive so far and action seems fluid enough. From what I understand, this is White Fox's first ever anime original project so it'll be curious to see how they develop this. Could be a hit or a miss although I hope it will be a hit.

I also enjoyed the first episode though it is a bit unfortunate as it means I'll have to re-subscribe to the Anime Network again...

I loved this one. From the English speaking opening section, I found myself gripped. The action was good, the characters introduced so far are nice and quirky, and just enough of the overall plot was revealed with plenty left to keep my interest in it moving forward. Poor Matoi is adorably cute, though that normal life she craved has now flown out of reach for now, but I look forward to following along on what are sure to be exciting adventures. As for its overall look, I thought the character design was well done, the action was pretty fluid and the music was on point. I have a feeling this may become one of my favorites of the season.

Too early to judge. The action scenes were nice, but I'm not very fond of the chara design also the groping scene was totally unnecessary.

Episode 2

Clarus shows that she's badass, while Matoi is trying to avoid being the talk of social media. That was pretty funny to see her trying to cope with her situation as she's being followed around by someone who can't be seen by normal humans. She just had enough of being a magical girl, or exorcist girl as she calls it, but of course that's not going away anytime soon. And then comes the bank robbery, and the wardrobe malfunction at the end that has her scrambling. Poor Matoi just wanted to be ordinary and not get involved in all of this mess.
