Westernization, a time when humans and spirits coexist.

The modernization of Japan has begun. The Ministry of Spirit Affairs is established to resolve mysterious incidents involving the nation’s spirits. This ministry consists of representatives from both the human and spirit worlds. Zakuro, Susukihotaru, Bonbori, and Hozuki are all half-spirits who have been partnered with the second lieutenants Kei, Riken, and Ganryu. These half-spirit girls and the male second lieutenants are all assigned to Spirit Affairs in an effort to join forces and carry out any tasks given to them!

Story- The plot wasn't confusing at all. It wasn't cliche, and very original. It did have a few things that were predictable, but only a few. I think that this was a very unique and different anime. The ended was surprisingly different then how I though it would end. There was only one thing I didn't like at the end.

Art- The art really shined in this anime. The character and setting art was average, it was the fighting. The visuals were stunning during a fight scene. There were vivid colors and it flowed nicely. The cherry blossom petals that occasionally showed look beautiful. The read more

Ever hear of the saying "try something new", well I'm glad I did. At the beginning of the season I wasn't expecting much from Otome Youkai Zakuro but boy did this series surprise me.Otome Youkai Zakuro is produced by J.C. Staff and the reason I wasn't expecting much from it was because they were already producing 2 other more hyped anime this season. However I think this might be the best one out of the three they put out this season.

The series takes place in the Meiji Era (which is anywhere between 1868 and 1912). During this time 3 Soldiers are sent read more

Cliches, stereotypes, formulas, and other such mass production "tools" that are involved in the creation of "original" anime are a common part of the industry these days. One only has to look at the shows released over the previous season, never mind the previous year, to see just how many titles are nothing more than variations on a given theme.

That doesn't mean that they're all bad though. While an anime may be burdened with cliches, have a fomulaic plot and/or stereotypical characters, if these are used in an intelligent and innovative manner then it's possible to produce something decent at least. Sadly, many of shows read more

If there is something that i learned over the years that i watched anime is that it doesn't matter what genre is the show , shounen , shoujo , seinen or jousei , if it has a good story i will watch it and with that in mind i tried Otome Youkai Zakuro .

Story 7

It wasn't the best story that is for sure , but it wasn't the worst either , it had ups and downs as all other animes . As some of you know cuz' you've read the plot line this anime is about 3 soldiers Agemaki ,Ganryuu and Riken , read more

Both are pretty shoujo series about humans and youkai. 
The main female character has demon blood running through her reigns. Both Anime deal with being different from normal people and the designs are intricate. 
I have a strong suspicion that Otome Youkai Zakuro was made to resemble Ouran. Both Tamaki and Agemaki come from a strict family, yet each are kindhearted. Haruhi and Zakuro are both strong, independent women who don't want to rely on others. 
Both shows deal with half-demons that slay real demons. Both characters are on their own, but slowly build up a circle of friends. Both characters find love! 
Relationship between humans and fox-like spirits and the comedic moments the ensue. Both are heartfelt animes and both have action to keep the pace going as well as funny dialogue and good supporting characters. 
otome youkai zakuro and hakuouki has some kind of demons and they are both have romance
