From ancient times, shrine maidens using swords have exorcised grotesque creatures known as “aratama” (Wild Souls) when they have menaced the human world. Mainly dressed in sailor uniforms and equipped with a sword, these girls are known as “Toji”. They are formally known as being a part of the police as the “special ritual riot squad.” These girls have been given official permission to carry these swords as government officials, and most of these Toji are female students attending five different training schools throughout the country. These girls lead out their average lives as high school students, but sometimes official duties call, and with sword in hand, these girls demonstrate supernatural powers by fighting to protect humanity.

This spring,

Toji from the five schools are gathered, and using each of their abilities to fight, the customary tournament is coming up. As the tournament approaches, many, many Toji are zealously training, and noticeably hiding her strong feelings, one girl is working hard on polishing one ability. But where does the point of her well-honed blade face?

Three Episode Impression

The new original anime from studio Gokumi starts out rather fast. Girls are gathering for a sword tournament. These are no ordinary swords though as the girls work together to defeat evil beings known as aratama when they appear. However, as soon as the big matches start happening, one contender raises her sword against a hero sword maiden. Her name is Hiyori and she is immediately labeled a traitor. However, her match partner, mad that she did not get the chance to battle her, follows her. Her name is Kanami. After it is revealed that the highest sword maiden is not who she claims to be, the two set out on a journey to reveal this dirty secret all while being pursued. The anime is okay. There are no guys, but yuri fans might not like it too much either as there is barely anything homoerotic about Toji no Miko either. It oddly presents itself with a rather deep story and doesn’t rely on tropes too much. The only downside is that they are playing up how Kanami is from a non-Tokyo area by making her speak, think, and act a bit like a hick. Stay classy Japan. If you like your all girl anime with a bit more of a story that takes itself seriously, then check out this original gem.
