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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Animation was up and down. Jumping between CGI rendering and regular. The regular was fine, not outstanding but adequate, however I'm not sure if they were using the rendered for time purposes or what, but it was not great most of the places it was used and pulled you out of paying attention to what was happening, just by how wrong what was happening looked.

Story wise again hit and miss, there is the potential for something great, but it feels like it missed whatever it was aiming for. Character development was actually done okay, but lots of threads left hanging. I ...
