    Underwhelming with bright spots
    Overall this series left a lot to be desired in terms of characters, graphics, and plot. It often felt like this show was trying to be a supernatural fighting show, a political drama, and a coming-of-age tale all while our heroines act out some very tired magical girl stereotypes.

  • An unfolding journey
    Completely just my opinion,

    I found Toji No Miko to have a really enjoyable story arc, character development often jumped in leaps and bounds and I found myself sometimes just accepting that they'd developed without much information on their development.

    However! the final 5 episodes drew it together very well, the final episode, in particular, made reference to elements throughout the ...

    One of the best anime in history!
    I would recommend this but was a bit harder to understand and get the gist of it but it was amazing.
    Plot Summary: Since ancient times, shrine maidens who wield swords have been exorcising "aratama," strange existences that threaten the human world. These young women who wear school uniforms and a sword are called "Toji," and they serve as an official unit within the police force as a "special ...

  • Well Actioned Shoujo!
    I love this anime! The animation is done very well, especially for the CGI put into the fight scenes! The plot is well done and the art for all the characters as well as the character designs are beautiful. The most satisfying thing for me was seeing the development of the characters when they join together. Overall, I really enjoyed this anime and is highly recommended!

  • A Roller Coaster of Emotions
    Toji No Miko was an interesting watching experience that left me conflicted in quite a few ways.

    On one hand, there were episodes especially in the first half of the series that left me confused, annoyed, angry, and in disbelief from the contradictions of plot and "babysitting" that the series felt it needed to do for viewers to understand what was going on. It was pretty off putting seeing ...

    They should have quit after the first twelve episode arc.
    Most of the time when I am watching a good anime I get to around episode 12 or 13 and the anime ends with me feeling a great sadness that it ended there. This is one anime where it should have ended there. It absolutely ruined this anime for me that it continued into the twenties its episode count.

    First half season of twelve episodes I would rate somewhere from a B+ to an A-, but ...

    Katana Maidens: Moe, Battles and threats.
    Before I share my opinion on the series let me first say something that happened to me while watching it. I was really eager to watch this series as I was coming from a very gentle series without serious action. I can't blatantly overlook the first 12 episodes so, to be honest, I thought it was very mediocre lots of ups and downs and there I was on episode 12 literally ready to write a much worse ...

    Um... I like it. Try it out.
    It's an odd show. Not because it's got any truly audacious story concepts like the out-there Gurren Lagann, but because it wears genericness on its sleeve whilst being both subversively realistic with its characters and unconventional with its narrative.
    Honestly, I started watching it because it looked like fluff and I wanted a reprieve after being overwhelmed by how many good shows there were ...

    Entertaining Series.
    Was kinda reluctant to watch this at first as the Japanese fascination with swords is getting a bit old but i started watching and began to like this series the premise isn't anything new but the writers made it just different enough from other animes of this type that it was fun to watch and kept my interest in the characters and the powers they exhibit. Theirs very little fan service the ...
