Synopsis

When demons walk the streets, the cops need to recruit more demons!

In a town where humans and demons co-exist, it takes more than a normal police force to maintain the peace. Enter the Hiizumi Life Counseling Office, a fantastic foursome of unique teenagers, each gifted with an amazing super power! Since it sometimes takes real demon-fire to fight demon fire, the first three quarters of the team aren't exactly human: Ao, a cat-eared telepath; Kotoha, a half-human conjuror; and Hime, descended from a dragon (and the town's acting mayor), all of whom also happen to be delightfully female.

Rounding out the group is the token male and human, Akina, the office director and "Oyakume," capable of banishing spirits permanently (and from their point of view quite fatally) via a process called tuning. They may not look as impressive as some other superhero teams, and they certainly don't have the most dynamic name ever, but come hell hounds or high water, but they will defend their city!

Yozakura Quartet is an extremely odd show, and you'll be forgiven for scratching your head and wondering what the hell was going on come the end of the show.

The series began life as a manga by Suzuhito Yasuda that was published by Kodansha in Japan, and by Del Rey in the US. Prior to the manga, Suzuhito worked as the character designer on Kuwashima Yoshikazu's series Kamisama Kazoku, and Yozakura Quartet is his first solo work.

The anime was directed by Matsuo Kou (Kure-nai, Rozen Maiden, Red Garden, Dead Girls), and shows some of the trademarks of Matsuo's directorial skill.

The story is very similar to that read more

There are few times when an avid anime fan goes into something expecting so much and gets so little in return. Yozakura Quartet happens to be one such example. Based on a much more highly acclaimed manga, the first episode starts off with all one could expect from a show that could deliver. Interesting, well-drawn characters centered around at least a moderately unique plotline. The music and sound quality are top notch and there are even early introductions to romance possibilities.

However, as some stories tend to do, that’s when the train leaves the tracks. Yozakura Quartet is about a group of young people (there are read more

I'm writing this review, in part, to respond to the other reviews. I felt strongly that the number ratings given do not correspond with what was said, and that they were unnecessarily gentle. This series is 4(Decent) at best.

As to the story, it had a lot of potential, but none of that was realized. It ended up jumping around to random battles and poorly scripted conversations that seemed to have something to do with a general movement of plot, but in actuality did not. Lots of things happen in the plot, but the plot parts are so disjointed that no real story emerges, at read more

Yozakura Quartet was only a twelve episode series. That's not a lot of episodes to go wrong with. A basic plot and story can easily be done in twelve episodes. Characters can be fleshed out in twelves episodes. Yozakura Quartet did not manage to do any of that.

Story - 3

The first few episodes showed how much potential Yozakura Quartet had. They were interesting and hooked me instantly. The rest of the show continued to mock me as if saying I was a fool for having any hope in the plot. The characters made stupid decisions and many plot points never made sense or were poorly read more

The animation is similar, the characterdesign is similar and in both animes the protagonist/s are fighting against creatures who look like humans and have special abilities.

Haruhi retains the supernatural aspects, centering around a group of 5 instead of 4. While the show's plotines and such differ, the main supernatural aspect of abnormal beings with powers, working to defend either a town, or in Haruhi's case, the earth.

Both series also contain a good deal of off-and-on comedy.

Plus, Hime's personality sometimes reminds me of Haruhi's. 
reportRecommended by Ekureiru
Though petopeto-san lacks battles and superpowers and focuses more on the slice-of-life/comedy part, both anime deal with the issue of the coexistence between human and youkai and the effort to find a way so they can coexist peacefully.
 
reportRecommended by Sooru
Both are shonen series with crazy magic fights, badass heroines, huge trees and the end of the world at stake. 
reportRecommended by StudentMAGe
People, youkai and animals all living together inside a barrier. The protagonists handle incidents that occur in their respective town/world. 
reportRecommended by DroidChargers
Both feature similarities between Japanese belief about gods and demons, but mainly demons. As InuxBoku SS includes protecting in a servant/master relationship Yozakura Quartet on the other hand only includes protection of their city. Both have very unique characters that are disguised as human but are in reality another form of demon. I would recommend both animes are good, even though the Yozakura Quartet doesn't make much sense.
