The first half and middle of the story are boring. The surprise facts revealed in the second half make it interesting, but only a little. The character is not so cute. The world view is not good enough.
However, the drawing level is high, especially the transformation scene and the battle scene. The background of the everyday scene is simple, but the background of the different space is colorful and Japanese-like heterogeneity can be produced individually. This is a very good job.
Sound production is not bad in daily life, combat and seriousness. By all means, there is a place that resembles MadoMagi, and the evaluation of individuality is not high.

One day in their regular daily lives, the Hero Club members are suddenly caught in an explosion of light and transported to a strange forest, where they encounter mysterious monsters known as Vertex which seek to destroy the Shinju (神樹, “Divine Tree”), the guardian deity which protects and blesses humanity. Using a special phone application granted by Taisha, an organization dedicated to the Shinju, Yuna and her friends must transform into “heroes” with magical powers to protect their world from imminent destruction.
