There's an evil creature called Aratama that attacks people, and a group of Miko has been exorcising those creatures using swords since olden times. Those who wear uniforms and swords are called Toji, who are officially called Tokubetsu Saishi Kitoutai (Special Ritual Maneuver Team) in the police association. They are officially approved to wield the swords by the government officials. The government has established five training schools consisting of junior and senior high levels for the female students to attend. They spend their student life normally, and use special skills with the swords when they're doing missions to protect people. In the spring, these five schools are to take part in a competition. Among the girls who train for the competition, there's a girl who's a bit more passionate than any other girls. Where would the girl with the sword aim?

I'll get right to the point:
Stop trying to convince yourself this is a generic schoolgirl battle anime, because it's just not. Anyone with any love for kenjutsu or any knowledge of the way samurai think should spot this series' not-screwing-around nature immediately.

At the time of writing this review, I've seen 4 episodes, and I feel the need to write an early review to help counteract the uncalled-for prejudice the anime has been garnering.

Spoilers for episode 01 ahead:

Right from the get-go we're introduced to an interesting political structure and logistics within these specialized swordswomen who're trained to fight the demonic menaces called aradama.

I don't get the eh reviews and eh scores i'v seen for this.

While the show isn't anything amazing or new. It does keep my attention throughout the the show so far.

If there is any complaint i'd have to say it's the animation. I'v seen better, But at the same time i'v seen worse. I tended not to pay it much attention and focus on the story.

They have some Yuri themed feels to the show. But it's nothing like Fluff Yuri shows we've seen in the past.

I found this to be just a very fun show to watch. It's no Violet Garden read more

I didn't think I would be hooked by some anime based on a bishoujo mobage. If you have seen some mobage adaptation like Ange Vierge, Battlegirl Highschool, Schoolgirl Strikers, etc, I understand your concern how Toji no Miko will likely be a bad adaptation.

Trust me, so far It's not, and will likely not be.

The animation and art is good. The characters are cute and charming. The OP, ED, and BGM are good too. Good enough so I don't have to skip the OP and ED. For the OP, I love the animation, as for the ED, I love both the pics and the song.

Welp, have I never seen a series start-off so decently by until even the proceeding episodes made me question: "Why am I still watching this trash of a show?"

Immediately, Katana Maidens: Toji no Miko feels underwhelming, and basing off from people that have criticized it for the story plot to the animation, so much so that they have brushed it off being nonsensical about it. My two-cents worth is of no difference either, because what the series showcases now, it still doesn't feel like we're getting the gist of the story amidst its story-building aspect.

My thoughts are like of Studio Pierrot's quality when it read more
