The official website for the Toji no Miko: Kizamishi Issen no Tomoshibi smartphone game updated with a 15-second animated ad and a new key visual on Tuesday. The visual (first image below) forms a pair with the upcoming Toji no Miko television anime's visual (second image below).
The iOS and Android game is slated for 2018. The "weapons combat battle RPG" will be free to play with in-game item purchases.
The game's website lists the same cast as the anime as well as five game-original characters, all previewed in the game visual and ad above. The cast members are:
- Himika Akaneya as Mihono Asakura
- Kaori Ishihara as Chie Setouchi
- Hiromi Igarashi as Kofuki Shichinosato
- Akane Fujita as Kiyoka Musumi
- Manami Numakura as Miruya Kitora
Studio Gokumi's original television anime project Toji no Miko (The Shrine Maiden Swordwielders) will air on on Tokyo MX, MBS, BS11, and AT-X for six months from January to June 2018. The anime will premiere on AT-X, Tokyo MX, and MBS on January 5, followed by BS11 on January 7.
In the anime's story, since ancient times, shrine maidens who wield swords have been exorcising "aratama," strange existences that threaten the human world. These young women who wear school uniforms and a sword are called "Toji," and they serve as an official unit within the police force as a "special religious service police squad." The government authorizes the Toji to wear swords and serve as government officials, and the government has set up five schools throughout the country for the girls to attend.
The girls live ordinary school lives, while occasionally performing their duties, wielding their swords and using various powers to fight and protect the people. In the spring, the five schools send their best Toji to compete in a tournament. As the tournament comes closer, all of the representatives rigorously train themselves in order to get stronger and improve their skills.
Sakae Saito (Kantai Collection - KanColle - Itsuka Shizuka na Umi de, Heavy Object S, Buddy Complex: Senjō no Coupling) launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Monthly Shonen Ace magazine on October 26.
