The new coming of age anime, Shikizakura, is written by Naruki Nagakawa and directed by Shinya Sugai. It is scheduled to debut in October 2021. It just released a new promotional video, which will captivate viewers with just a glimpse. The story revolves around an average high schooler, Kakeru Miwa. He discovers that the human world intersects with the spirit world, leading to a battle with monsters known as “Oni.”
Kakeru, along with other members of the power suit team, achieves their strength by wearing “Yoroi”, powered suits built with ancient secrets and the latest technology. They battle onis to shield the shrine maiden, Ouka myojin, destined to save the world.
Watching the PV is enough to believe that the action scenes will be remarkable and will keep viewers hooked till the end. It is shown that each power suit possesses a particular superpower. Goosebumps are guaranteed when the team members wear their power suits to fight against the ones to save humanity. The characters seem to be intriguing as well.
The thing about action animes is that sometimes they miss out on the plot. A good action anime has to include a promising storyline with the action scenes—Attack on Titan or Jujutsu Kaisen are good examples of that. Although we dont know for sure yet, it appears that Shikizakura will surprise us with both.

This sublimation studio anime will be a significant hit once it broadcasts. Excitingly, this anime will also receive a manga adaptation, written by Mayato Aoki.
