Since childhood, Tadahiro Amatsu has two different-colored eyes - one brown and one light hazel. But because of a dark secret behind his left eye, he's become a target for the masked sorcerer Ayatara Miramune and his band of demons. To combat the demons appearing all over town, Yuzu Hieda, a priestess in training, recruits four other girls from her high school. Under the supervision of Yuzu's elder sister Kurako, the five young priestesses must undergo months of training to master their abilities.

I recommend this title to anybody who wants to watch ...

The word bland describes this Anime well.

I don’t have issues with the art style having watched quite a few older series which employ the art style used yet utilizing such a simple style actually makes errors stand out even more.

There are a few beautiful watercolors, yet most of the scenes are overly simplistic and the character design doesn’t fit with the actual scenery style making the work even more jarring.

As for ...
