However, the website hasn’t revealed the anime’s format yet. This means that we still don’t know whether this would be a TV anime, a movie, an OVA, or an ONA. We do know that it’s an original anime is set in a world where beings known as “aratama” exist, and they threaten the world. To fight these “aratama”, young shrine maidens known as “Toji” serve as agents of the police to combat them. They are authorized to carry swords, and they are also serving as government officials. Of course, most of these Toji are still students, and they belong to five elite schools, which are about to compete in a tournament, where they send their best Toji to compete.
