However, as the stress and consequences of their sacred duty weigh on them both, and family politics come into play, Kagura and Yomi begin to slowly drift apart.

3. Advanced can Learn Japanese with This Anime

The two heroines are high school girls, but because there are many adult conversations, difficult phrases and high-level honorific words often appear. The way the two heroines speak is very real and stable, which is good for listening to everyday conversation. However, because of the world view of the work, there are many youkai and police-related terms, so if this anime is really suitable for learning Japanese, it is limited to advanced learners of Japanese.
