An official website has opened and announced that an original anime titled Toji no Miko (Sword User Shrine Maiden) will be in production.

Introduction
There's an evil creature called Aratama that attack 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 of wielding 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 there're 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?

Seems like this is another attempt to ride off the Sword Popularity trend that's going on in Japan right now ( GThanks to Touken Ranbu ). First Tenka Hyakken and now this? Judging by the synopsis alone which is a mess in itself, I have a good idea that this is going is going to be a bad, bland, generic anime. But hey at least the art looks good. Also.. " Original Anime " lmaoo

That synopsis sounds like a fucking mess. Like they took a bunch of generic themes, put them together for this anime, and then had to explain to the potential views that they took all of these and mashed them together.

Of course, people calling it trash based on nothing. I hate this community sometimes.

I hope the Action Scene will be as awesome as FSN UBW ­čśĄ
And the Genre would be?
Would these Anim be like Gakusen Toshi Asterisk?
And hey they were no guarantee that it would be no male there,..

Could be a hit or a miss. I hope they actually make the action scenes look good?

Not a LN adaptation? It should be at least decent then.

What's this? Tournament magical battle academy? Might as well give my 3/10 right now.

Looks like an easy skip for me.

Girls only? Nope, definitely skipping this one. I don't like mono-gendered series.

Huh, sounds like a wild ride. Might have to pick it up eventually.

Ehh well not really sold by the synopsis much but the staff is quite decent in all honesty. I'll wait for the PV and such but I'm kinda interested in it.
