Yagi Takeru has been living in the Touma family's house since his parents are gone. He was raised by Touma Rokunosuke, the head of the house. He is surrounded by many people such as Yamato Takeshi, his best friend-cum-rival from the kendo club, the Shiratori sisters, Kotono and Asuka, and his childhood friend, Oosu Seri. Life has been blissful until one day, an earthquake strikes the school and everything changes. Takeru awakens to find that the school looks as if it has been abandoned for centuries and reduced to ruins. He also realize that all the teachers and students have disappeared as well. He meets up with Seri and Asuka and they fled from the ruins, only to realize that the town they used to live in is completely empty. Subsequently, people wrapped in cloaks appear before him. They were told that they have been brought to another world.

I loved watching Izumo very much. As soon as I watched episode 1 I watched the rest in one whole night! :3 The story was on topic, and fit well altogether. The ending was great!! Very detailed background, characters, objects, and powers!! ~o~ This is the best anime I have ever seen so far. I re-watched it twice. The opening song and closing were even the best Japanese songs to me. I enjoy a lot of Japanese songs, but OMG!!!!!!!! Loved this. Takeru

Izumo: Takeki Tsurugi no Senki is based on a Studio E.Go game

Sound: The only thing that I found that was ok in this anime was its sound. The music didn't seem out of place and was read more
