When Demons Walk the Streets, The Cops need to recruit More Demons! In a town where humans and demons co-exist, it takes more than a normal police force to maintain the peace. Enter the Hiizumi Life Counseling Office, a fantastic foursome of unique teenagers, each gifted with an amazing super power! Since it sometimes takes real demon-fire to fight demon fire, the first three quarters of the team aren't exactly human: Ao, a cat-eared telepath; Kotoha, a half-human conjuror and Hime, descended from a dragon (and the town's acting mayor,) all of whom also happen to be delightfully female. Rounding out the group is the token male and human, Akina, the office director and "Oyakume," capable of banishing spirits permanently (and from their point of view quite fatally) via a process called tuning. They may not look as impressive as some other superhero teams, and they certainly don't have the most dynamic name ever, but come hell hounds or high water, but they WILL defend their city in YOZAKURA QUARTET, the complete collection!

Keep in mind, this is only subtitled. But in a way, that made it even better.
I would suggest this series to hard core anime fans who would appreciate a show with magic, fantasy, friendship, humor and action.
I'll save you the time of reading this review and just tell you right now, BUY THIS ANIME!
What? You're still reading this? Why haven't you pressed the "Add to Cart" button yet? Well, whatever the reason may be, this collection will not fail you.
Spread across 2 DVDs are all 12 episodes of this anime. Audio is in Japanese only with English subtitles, though there shouldn't be any concern regarding essays of text to read. The show moves moderately fast but subtitles are very easy to read and understand. For those who hate to read, this isn't bad at all, and it doesn't make for any less of a story!
Unfortunately there aren't any extras that come with the dvd release, something would have been nice but oh well.
Anyway, the story is very basic in its own unique sense. There are 7 pillars spread around Sakurashin town and they must be kept from blooming or else all hell will break loose. The Life Counseling Center, comprised of members Ao, Hime, Kotoha, Akina and Kyousuke, must stop the evil Enjin from doing so. Enjin has been causing all sorts of commotion around town and they have to find a way to defeat him without injuring their dear friend Gin, who has been taken over by the evil Enjin. What will happen to Sakurashin town? You'll have to find out!!
There are many flashy battles throughout the show, including machine guns, dragon spears, exorcism, katanas, and of course bare knuckle boxing!
The opening and ending songs are solid, and the music throughout the show reminds of Fooly Cooly, but don't hold it against me.
For those who have been reading the books, this show will completely destroy your sense of direction! This show was not meant to be linear with the books, this story should be taken differently.
Though i'm sure those who have been following the books will love how the characters come to life in the show.
I know I did!!
