Since ancient times, shrine maidens have exorcised ‘aradama’, strange existences threatening the human world, with their swords. Wielding the swords are ‘Toji’, young women wearing school uniforms. As the ‘special religious police unit’ they work for the police. While they work for the government and go to one of the five schools set up by the government, they are allowed to carry swords. They try to live a normal school life and sometimes go out to perform their duties, fighting for humankind.
But this spring…
The five schools send their strongest Toji to face each other at a tournament. As the tournament gets closer, the chosen students concentrate even more on their training, trying to improve their skills.
