"Toji no Miko" Cuts a Path to Two Consecutive Cours
Toji no Miko, an upcoming original TV anime about sword-wielding school girls who protect Japan from supernatural threats, will run for two consecutive cours, beginning in January of 2018 and concluding in June of 2018.
Additionally, the opening and ending themes for the show will be performed in-character by six voice actresses: Kaede Hondo (the voice of Kanami Etō), Saori Ōnishi (the voice of Hiyori Jūjō), Azumi Waki (the voice of Mai Yanase), Hina Kino (the voice of Sayaka Itomi), Risae Matsuda (the voice of Kaoru Mashiko), and Eri Suzuki (the voice of Ellen Kohagura).
The opening theme is entitled “Save you Save me”, while the ending theme is entitled “Kokoro no Memoria” (“Memory of the Heart”). Both songs will be released as singles in Japan on January 24, 2018.
Toji no Miko is set in a world where since ancient times sword-wielding shrine maidens known as “toji” (“sword-users”) have protected the human world from incursions by strange and fantastical beings. In modern times, the toji belong to a special police organization that allows them to carry swords, and they train at five locations in the nation of Japan. Toji no Miko is the story of one such girl who aspires to prove herself at the annual tournament in which toji from the five schools gather to test their skill.
Toji no Miko is directed by Koudai Kakimoto and features animation by Studio Gokumi. The series will air on Tokyo MX, MBS, BS11, and AT-X beginning in January of 2018.
