Synopsis

Shikizakura: where cherry blossoms are in full bloom while trees are colored with autumn leaves. In this special place, where the transient world meets the spirit world, a ritual to save humanity is about to begin...

High school student Kakeru Miwa, by a strange turn of events, winds up being an irregular member of a power suit team tasked with battling Oni. These Oni possess humans and try to cling to the transient world. Only the power suit, Yoroi, which combines ancient secrets with the latest technology, can protect people from Oni. Kakeru decides to become a hero who will battle Oni and protect Ouka Myoujin, the shrine maiden fated with saving the world.

Shikizakura season. Ouka dances as a shrine maiden in autumn leaves and cherry blossoms. Heroic action—where the past and the future, the transient world and the spirit world, thoughts and wishes, all intersect—begins here!

Shikizakura is, at heart, a kind of cheesy and overall optimistic heroic action show. It wears its genre openly and proudly, and goes ahead and takes the cliches it thinks it can use.

All the same, this show is weirdly charming. Sometimes, when something is very much in its genre comfort zone, you get the feeling like it's lazy, or on autopilot. At least after the first couple episodes when you don't necessarily know what to expect from it, Shikizakura isn't like that. It's an extremely earnest show, in a sense, and there's a passion in it to capture the great feeling ...

You guys ever seen Kamen Rider recently? Felt like you want to catch up on the past 3 seasons but are unable to cram more than 3 years worth of content within a 6 hour view time? Well give Shikizakura a try! It has all three of the Kamen Rider seasons from the Reiwa era on a convenient 12 episode package.

It has the art direction of Zero-One, the story of Saber, and the premise of Revice. Though despite that, Shikizakura is an enjoyable show in and of itself. It's an homage to the transforming hero genre, and it's a title I can full heartedly recommend ...

So, Shikizakura huh, it is very less likely that you are here, without being interested in the show, so I would like to present what the show can and cannot offer. Thanks for Reading in advance.

The story for the show is told in a very complicated manner. What I mean by that is, that the main progression of the story is fairly simple along with the happenings, but the actual reason to why the things that are happening, and why are certain things being pursued is complicated, which might be confusiing. Therefore, 5 /10 for the story.

The only good thing that I find about this ...
