The new Shikizakura trailer has arrived, and it’s heartwarmingly enjoyable! While it’s obviously just a 40-second teaser, it’s enough to get me excited, when the first trailer did nothing for me. How come? This time around, we’re introduced to more characters, and we see them actually interact with one another. If nothing more, it gives us insight into the more light-hearted side of things, which is something I truly appreciate. I mean, the action might be great, but we need to care for the characters, don’t we? Thus, it’s a good glimpse into Sublimation’s upcoming anime! However, it’s the reveal of the ending theme song that’s the cherry on top. Make sure you give it a listen, in the new Shikizakura trailer, found below!

Only “Yoroi,” powered suit that is a fusion of ancient secrets and cutting-edge technology, can protect people from onis. Kakeru puts on a Yoroi by chance and becomes a semi-official member of a team that fights against onis.
Determined to become a hero, Kakeru battles Onis to protect Ouka Myojin, the shrine maiden destined to save the world. In the season of Shikizakura, in midst of autumn leaves and a flurry of cherry petals, Ouka performs a dance as a shrine maiden.
