Gods and ghosts only exist in fairy tales, right? That's the impression that high school girl Tamki Kasuga has before she goes to live with her grandmother in the remote village of Kifumura. After being attacked by strange creatures upon her arrival, she is soon informed that females in her family contain the blood of the Tamayori Princess, who has the responsibility and power of keeping gods and ghosts sealed away so that they can't harm the general public. At first Tamaki has trouble believing this, but having five beautiful young men following her everywhere she goes acting as her guardians goes a long way towards convincing her.

There's more to this job than Tamaki first realizes, however, and the path that lies ahead of her is fraught with peril and danger. Will she be able to successfully take on the heavy role that has been put on her shoulders?


The first episode was pre-aired on March 6, 2012 on YTV.

The Japanese voice cast for the main characters remains unchanged from the original PS2 otome game that the anime is based off of.

This is my favorite anime. I truly love this anime. The visuals in this anime are quite beautiful, the story does drop in season 2 but it's really good overall. The main girl is quite whiny and granny really grinds my gears but the male characters are developed really well & kinda over take the story. My favorite character was Suguru. The evil characters reminded me of the Valtura from Twilight. But I also liked Aria. This is super underrated and I'm not sure how this gets skipped over. And some people just tend to judge hard. So if you go into this with an ...

Hiiro no Kakera wasn't terrible, but still one of my least favorite otome.

At first, I was a little interested by the setting and supernatural circumstances that brought the reverse harem together. However, the show wasn't able to utilize it beyond the "protect these certain important items for the fate of the world but then still fail at it" trope. Everything else was just the characters sitting on top of the rooftop talking about stuff. There was also the possibility of a traitor among them, but that's rarely addressed until season two (and don't get me started with how that's resolved).

Next were the characters, and ...

To this very day, I still don't know what possessed me to start and (tragically) finish this thing. It's awful. The characters, animation, the plot, everything is so bad, it can't be salvaged.

My sister (who didn't watch it) told me "Hey, you should watch it. I found it because I listened to the OP and ED and I liked it" and my stupid 16yo me who just watched anime for the sport of it was like "alright, I'll give it a try" and so I wasted hours of my youth.

I'm grateful that it's been so long since I watched it so I can't remember ...
