Twin sisters Shoko and Maiko Ohgi could not be more different: the former is dark-haired and brainy, while the latter is a redhead hustler. However, they share the common fate of being the current heir of the Ohgi family, a clan of Onmyōdō exorcists that has protected Japan since generations. Secretly backed by the Japanese government and helped by a descendant of Abe no Seimei, among other weird and varied allies, the sisters combine the powers conceded by their guardian deity Karura to banish evil.
This work provides examples of:
- Excited Show Title!: The title, which aside from being long has an exclamation point.
- Five-Man Band: Shoko and Mai are The Hero and The Lancer to each other; Kenmochi is The Smart Guy, being the most knowledgeable in the supernatural; Nishikiori is The Big Guy, who serves as the earthly muscle and can be a bit rude; and Chikae is The Heart, who ties the group together by being a Love Interest to Maiko and an apprentice to Kenmochi, as well as being occasionally the most emotional male. Later Hiroe joins as a Sixth Ranger.
- Long Runner: From the 80s and still running.
- Long Title: The complete title is actually Hengen Taima Yakō Karura Mau! ("Phantasmagoric Exorcism Night Parade: Karura Dance!"), although it is usually shortened to its last two words.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The classic pair, as Shoko is calm and intellectual, while Maiko is energetical and a bit dumb.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The show's premise.
