Dance with devils is an original anime series by the game developer, Rejet, which starts airing on October 7, 2015. It is a musical anime, which also has its original manga serialized in G fantasy just this month. The anime features beautifully drawn characters singing out their lines instead of the usual narration and conversation.
The protagonist is a 16 year-old girl, Ritsuka Tachibana, who lives in Shiko city with her mother and her elder brother, Lind. She starts school at Shiko Academy, where her brother is already a third-year student. She then becomes acquainted with the president of the student council, Ren Kaginuki, who is actually a demon. It is a story about demons, vampires, and exorcists.
