In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, a ceremony marking the new governing princess is about to occur for the first time in 60 years. Only a girl from the Hime Clan may take this position, but the lack of females born to this family means that a boy called Arata must pose for the role. During the ceremony, the Twelve Shinsho, the wielders of special swords called Hayagami, led by Kannagi, betray the princess by trying to kill her and Arata. Arata escapes and runs into the Kando Forest. He emerges from the forest and finds himself in the alley in present day Japan. He has a run-in with the police because he is shirtless but is saved by Nao, a girl who claims to be his sister....

while i will say that i do like this anime it deals with bullies. it also talks about being able to overcome challenges in your life. it seemed very rushed anime. while i have not read the manga i don't how it ends because i would like to hope their will be a continuation soon. through with so many series coming out it likely it could be lost in the shuffle of things. the story many times seem formic and it hard to root for characters because they seem so sad. it a really sad journey for the characters and it seems a lot of characters die before you get a chance to really enjoy them i would say try the manga and see if it better or wait for another season maybe it will be better.
