Synopsis

Throughout history, an elite group of shrine maidens known as "Toji" have saved the world from "Aratama," strange and malevolent beings bent on destroying humanity. In modern times, these warriors have been assigned to a special police squad to exterminate Aratama. The government has also set up five elite schools across the country to provide young girls the necessary sword fighting skills to eradicate these monsters and eventually join their fellow Toji in protecting the world.

A student of one of those five schools, Kanami Etou is chosen to represent Minoseki Academy in a sword fighting tournament, where she meets the mysterious Hiyori Juujou. Although Kanami and Hiyori rise to the top of the tournament, their battle takes an unexpected turn, throwing the world of the Toji into chaos. Likely that the Toji are facing betrayal from within, the two are forced to flee the tournament, clashing with former comrades on the way.

Katana Maidens

This was a pretty good series that does well in a lot of ways and fails in others. I'm only writing this review because I have a tendency to review series I either love or hate...this is me compromising for everything in between. To be honest, I went in thinking this would be like any of the other million shows involving magical girls or something similar. There's even a subgenre for Samurai/ninja magical girls like "Release the Spyce", "Armed Girls Machiavellism", or "Oh! Samurai Girls"! I'm not certain what the deal is with these shows in Japan, but it's not something we in the ...

Mixed Feelings
I think what really spoiled this show for me was the foundation of the story (and I'll try to avoid spoilage as best as can). The lead character and her predecessor in the story both act out of so-called love and, as a result, many people die. Instead of making the hard, painful choice that would end a tremendous, destructive evil, both choose their own feelings.

And neither pays a price for it. They are both seen as heroic, even as innocent people continue to die because of their actions. If you are someone who watches an anime like this for the swordfights and the story ...

Preliminary (12/24 eps)
I couldn't give this a much higher rating...so this might even be just a rant. Not because of character, music, art etc, but the storyline. With so many animes such as sora no tooi no basho, yuru camp and hakumei to meikochi coming out, similarity being about girls doing their things of interest, while some being slice of life. I had to give everything a try and plan to stick through till the end. Most of the animes similar to this are worth it to stick to the end, some becoming my all-time favourites.

However, this one was the one I couldn't stick to the end. ...

The Seasonal Quarterly: Spring 2018 (Part 1)

In these opening weeks of the Spring 2018 anime season, Steins;Gate 0 starts off as the by far highest rated anime, although Megalo Box is the new heavy hitter if we look past sequels. This and more in the opening edition of The Seasonal Quarterly.
