    First Impression: A Mystery?
    Episode 1 Impression:

    Going in with my cynical first expectations, the main mystery was what cliche direction this would take: Harem? Yuri? Ecchi? Or just another overdone battle school? Surely those swords only cut deep enough to expose boobs and panties, amiright?

    By the end of episode 1, it's none of the above. The battle school cover seems to be a decoy for a deeper story, and the ...

    Riding the edge of the blade for fun, but sometimes it cuts deep.
    First brush of the series starts with an interesting mix of standard character types, cliche moments, and hints of much deeper events and history than you might expect. The first episode is primarily making introductions, and laying out the structure for the series to be built on. While it doesn't seem to start off with a bang, there are signs of deeper currents that speak well of it's plot ...

    So much more than what I expected.
    As of episode one.

    I really enjoyed the first episode of this. I was going in expecting something bland and got so much more. For the run up I was expecting another generic monster fight anime but the depth that was present after the obligatory background opener was pleasantly surprising. Clean animation plus characters and plot that have vast potential is refreshing and has made me add this ...

    This is an excellent "fight school" anime
    Kanami Etou and Mai Yanase are called are Toji, those who wear uniforms and swords for their school, those who are officially called Tokubetsu Saishi Kitoutai (Special Ritual Maneuver Team) fight against the evil creatures called Aratama, that attacks people. Kanami and Mai are the best Katana Maidens from their school that go to a sponsored event at the Minoseki school to determine the best ...

  • A Short and Sweet Review
    Toji No Miko is faring pretty well. The animation is good, though at some points with the aradama, it looks weird. The characters introduced so far seem likeable, and you can get a glimpse of their personalities. I am always looking forward to the next episode.

    Already had the intuition that this would be a masterpiece
    Well I put my expectations high for this series and it turned out to exceed them by far , I was simply mesmerized and this is definitely one of the top series this season. You will grow to it as you watch it more and you will certainly enjoy it from start to end that is what I feel like. I love this anime.

    Very average anime!!!
    The title reminded me of just your average anime. It was decent but nothing special. Hence the three stars. Please go into this anime with no expectations. You will be greeted by cookie cutter content. The story needed some spice in its life. I would not recommend.

    More than I Thought!
    Going in with little to no expectations, expect of pretty animation and girls with swords, I think I can comfortably say this anime has pleasantly surprised! After three episodes there are some potentially deep characters, a growing mystery, and a rich world to explore.

    If you're a fan of school, slice of life, fighting, or shoujo anime; I recommend this for you! It seems fun, the girls are ...

    Extremely average and boring
    I think I am too old (and tired) to watch these anime so average / non original & they affect me easier than let's say a 11 years old kid. I tried watching it, but couldn't finish the 4th episode.

    The MC is just the typical teenager girls that she is really good on something, annoyingly fanatic (katanas? of course !) & overly friendly to the point of been completely irrational to keep fighting ...

  • Don't just watch the intro or ending, and please watch past the first episode.
    I don't normally write reviews here. I prefer just watching, but I have to admit that this series is more then it lets on.

    If you just watch the anime intro and ending you will be greeted with cute girls doing things that could be considered either stereotypical (the intro) or moe (then ending?). I don't care about that and would watch the series regardless. But in truth, the story has more to ...
