Soushin Shoujo Matoi

Soushin Shoujo Matoi

AKA: Matoi the Sacred Slayer
Supernatural, Magic, Fantasy - 2016 (TV)
 
Ranking: 1822

Matoi Sumeragi, a second-year junior high school student, works part-time as a shrine maiden at Tenman Shrine in the city of Kamaya. Her close friend Yuma Kusanagi is part of the family of the shrines chief priest, and is a candidate to be the successor shrine maiden. One day, Matoi and Yuma walk from the school to the shrine as usual, but when they arrive, they are greeted by the shrines now damaged grounds, and Yumas parents have both collapsed from their wounds. Matois father Shingo, a police detective, launches an investigation, and he comes upon a man who does not seem entirely sane, his only witness. When he holds down the man, Yuma begins the ritual of Divine Possession. Something strange then happens, not with Yuma, but with Matoi. Matoi Sumeragi, who had only wanted a normal, peaceful life, takes the role of a god, and gains the power to banish evil spirits. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

Overall I would say besides the weak story and the shallow antagonists the show had everything I hoped for and I enjoyed watching it. - MyAnimeList (BlueSkylark)

    

While not exactly an original series, there was a lot of interesting things in Matoi the Sacred Slayer. I'd say this series is one you'd enjoy more if you're fairly new to magical girl and fantasy. I can't say it's a great series, but it was certainly enjoyable. - Anime-Planet (FullmetalDragon)
