The Japanese cast for the original game, aside from the protagonist, reprised their roles for the series.
The anime and the original game centers around Tamaki Kasuga, a 17-year-old high school girl. When her parents have to go overseas for work, Tamaki moves to her mother's hometown in the mountains with her grandmother. On the day that Tamaki arrives at the village, she encounters strange creatures, only to be saved by a mysterious boy. The boy, Takuma Onizaki, is the first of five Guardians of the Tamayori-hime that Tamaki meets.
Sentai Filmworks and Section23 Films are releasing the first season of the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 16.
