The life of Kakeru Miwa is changed by a twist of fate when he attends school like anyone else. The story involves supernatural tension and action. Oni is causing fear among humans by killing them and eating them alive, leading to the beginning of the war between humans and Oni. Oni, who does not value human lives, Kakeru and his crew have to overcome the threat.
There has been an ongoing war between humans and Oni for many years since no one stepped up to take on the Oni. Thankfully, now a new force has arisen to challenge the Oni. Here’s where we’ll see how humans and Kakeru will respond to Oni.
What is the Anime based on?
In a war between the Oni and Kakeru, he finds himself on the front lines. Luckily for him, he received a suit of armor that helped him be able to accomplish his mission: the Yoroi. In his fight against the monstrous Oni, Kakeru joins a group of elite warriors. These warriors prevent otherworldly threats from harming the human race and the world as a whole. Oka Myojin is a shrine maiden who is being protected by the elite crew. The sages protect Oka for a sacred ritual within Shikizakura, in which she can predict the future and give prophecies.
As cherry blossoms bloom and autumn leaves turn colorful, Shikizakura communicates a physical and spiritual world. During the mission to safeguard Oka, this new crew takes on additional responsibilities. The cherry blossoms bloom, and autumn leaves turn red when humans discover a location named Shikizakura. A ritual will take place for two worlds to connect one day, aimed at saving the Earth. The ritual will take place in a special place, which is a place of sacred importance to humans.
The awakened student discovers that the enemy is an Oni in the midst of a battle. In their powered suits, Oni tortured and devoured humans. They rule the world by controlling humans. As the human’s study, they realize they can be protected from Oni with the powered suit “Yoroi.” Yuroi is a hybrid of ancient techniques and technology that Oni cannot match. People use the suit against the Oni in order to help themselves.
“Myojin Ouka” is the name of the shrine maiden who became a hero for saving the world by battling Oni and saving humans. Each year leaves bloom, and a shrine maiden named Ouka dances in the autumn. When this happens, the past and the future join, and the other side become visible.
