The animation studio, Studio Gokumi made this Action, Fantasy based anime.

There’s an evil creature called Aratama that attack people, and a group of Miko has been exorcising those creatures using swords since olden times. Those who wear uniforms and swords are called Toji, who are officially called Tokubetsu Saishi Kitoutai (Special Ritual Maneuver Team) in the police association. They are officially approved of wielding the swords by the government officials. The government has established five training schools consisting of junior and senior high levels for the female students to attend. They spend their student life normally and use special skills with the swords when they’re doing missions to protect people. In the spring, these five schools are to take part in a competition. Among the girls who train for the competition, there’s a girl who’s a bit more passionate than any other girls. Where would the girl with the sword aim?

 Science SARU animation studio adapted the manga to bring us this 10 episode ONA (Original Net Animation). It falls under the Action, Horror, Demons and Supernatural genres.

Akira becomes Devilman, a being with the power of a demon and the heart of a human after his best friend, Ryou Asuka, informs him that the demons will revive and reclaim the world from the humans. Since humans do not stand a chance against the power of the demons, Ryou suggests that he should fuse with a demon.
