A new teaser trailer has been released for Toji no Miko, an upcoming original TV anime about a world where high school girls moonlight as sword-wielding guardians protecting the world from supernatural invasions.
The teaser trailer samples "Kokoro no Memoria", the ending theme for Toji no Miko, which is performed by the six main voice actresses for the series: Kaede Hondo (the voice of Kanami Etō), Saori Ōnishi (the voice of Hiyori Jūjō), Azumi Waki (the voice of Mai Yanase), Hina Kino (the voice of Sayaka Itomi), Risae Matsuda (the voice of Kaoru Mashiko), and Eri Suzuki (the voice of Ellen Kohagura).
Toji no Miko is set in a world where since ancient times sword-wielding shrine maidens known as "toji" ("sword-users") have protected the human world from incursions by strange and fantastical beings. In modern times, the toji belong to a special police organization that allows them to carry swords, and they train at five special school scattered throughout Japan. Toji no Miko is the story of Kanami Etō, a girl who aspires to prove herself at the annual tournament in which toji from the five schools gather to test their skills.
