Musaigen No Phantom World (2016)
In an alternate future, an outbreak happened that made humans able to see and interact with spirits, or phantoms, as they're called - beings that walk the line between illusion and reality. At times the lines overlap, and our main characters get dragged into parallel worlds or altered realities.
Certain people with special abilities are tasked with fighting these phantoms when they disrupt human life, and these people happen to be (mostly) students. Haruhiko Ichijou and Mai Kawakami are two such fighters, but they're not doing so well. Over the passage of the story they meet up with a few more colleagues, and friends, and get better, and fight a bunch of phantoms!
It's a bit like Kono Subarashii Sekai Ni Shukufuku Wo! (also considering the main character's surrounded by a group of girls), but has a more serious/professional tone to it. Well, maybe not serious, but more... polished? More reputable? There's still plenty of ecchi, but it's not as crude as with the former.
All in all the episodes open up to intriguing scenarios of the supernatural, creative ones as such, and all the while a more sinister plot brews in the background. The characters are likable, albeit a bit stereotypic, and there's plenty of entertainment value. Don't know how I stumbled back to shows like this but... so far so good!
