Akina works with three girls, each of which bring something interesting to the table.
The other three-quarters of the quartet include Ao, Kotoha, and Hime: Ao is a mind reader and telepath, Kotoha is half-human and a conjurer, and Hime, who has dragon blood running through her veins, is incredibly strong.
These three girls are the driving force of Akina's Office, but are not to be outdone by Akina's own abilities, which include the power to banish spirits from the physical world. As Yozakura Quartet continues, these four are tasked with taking on various tasks around the city, following-up on crimes or challenges too big for all other forms of police.
The Yozakura Quartet anime series hopes to blend elements of the paranormal into a more humanized milieu. In a town where humans were once the dominating race, more and more demon species are cropping up, causing all sorts of unrest. Demons might possess someone, or another might abuse their power.... and if this is the case, Akina and his crew are on the case. Section23 Films will be distributing Yozakura Quartet starting March 2nd, 2010 ($39.98), through a DVD release to include all of the series' twelve episodes.
The animation's incorporation of demon fighting into the everyday work of four teens is often layered between moments of organic, overlapping dialogue, and a stylish rock soundtrack.
