Synopsis

High school student Himiko Himejima finds her life change forever when a mysterious flame appears before her one day. Along with her schoolmate Kutani Masahiko, Himiko is transported by the flame to an ancient kingdom known as Yamatai. The Yamatai kingdom has recently come under the attack of the Kune empire during its ritual to select a queen among six candidates. As the evil general of Kune creates an army of undead for power, the six queen candidates lead a resistance force to overthrow the Kune empire. Himiko and Kutani soon find themselves fighting alongside the queen candidates to save the kindgom. With some new-found power, Himiko and Kutani slowly realize their links to the ancient world and discover the power of the sacred flame.

The story is fine. The music is also fine. However, the art is not of good quality. The drawings, especially the characters, are not well proportioned. The characters have no depth. I mean the way the characters are presented, it's shallow. You can't even associate the shallowness of the characters to mystery. It's kind of a let-down. Well, you can enjoy the show a little if you are patient. Overall, the whole story is okay. Don't watch it if you are looking for a great anime. ^_^

This story starts out with troubled setting, much to keep the audience's interests at first, but as the story continues it falls short. The multiple characters of show, especially the women, are shown to be very beautiful, and strong, but have little to no background or give any reason why to fight for the position given within the series, and it makes one wonder why the other girl in question, Himiko is even there. Her purpose is to choose, but the villain is a side distraction, so over all the story is medium-rare at most, but enjoyable on a decent day if one read more

Anime: Kannazuki no Miko
A high school girl (Himiko/Himeko) is suddenly thrown into an otherworldly situation with her closest friend to fulfil a predetermined destiny under a long-hailed title (Boka/Solar Priestess). Both animes have some pretty legendary action scenes, heavy supernatural elements and a ton of drama. They're both 12 episodes as well so good if you're looking for someone shorter; and relatively happy endings.

Anime: Tenkuu no Escaflowne
Both have female protagonists sent to a medieval-ish looking world to help restore a land that was taken over/ravaged by a neighboring country. The girls have powers and try to help while looking for a way back to their own world. It's very similar, trust me.

Anime: Juuni Kokuki
A high school girl with some of her friends transported to another world and later have to deal with problems which exist in that world. They will have a lot of important peoples along side their quest and there is many other similarities which you can see for yourself.

Although they tell the story in a different way I think they both are a good watch.
