-INTRODUCTION-

My love for ancient Japan and Japanese mythology got me into yet another great anime. Onmyouji is even in the title; obviously, I couldn't go past it.

-STORY- 10/10

"If that is your wish, then I will break my heart for the sake of that wish, and I will lend you my strength. This is why I am by your side."

The story is set in Heian period of ancient Japan. It follows Abe no Masahiro (Abe no Seimei's grandson), a young onmyouji in training. Accompanied by his guardian and partner Guren, a powerful shikigami, Masahiro faces off against different mononoke that disturb the peace of the city. read more

There's a pretty simple formula for knowing whether you will like this show or not. If you like shows like Inuyahsa or Tactics, then you will like Shounen Onmyouji. If you don't, well.....follow the train of though, here. So for me this show was 50/50 because I loved Tactics but I wasn't that crazy about Inuyasha. This show may not have Shikon Shards or a magical well to jump through but it basically takes place in the same era as Inuyahsa and there is a lot of talk about demons and demonic auras, miasma and also all the other aspects of Japanese mysticism and read more

The story is entertaining, with the drama elements and some attempts at humour. There's the typical ayakashi hunting episodes, and cute relationships that develop between the characters. The series has the potential to be better, but in the end tends to disappoint on that end, and just screams for a second season.
The character developments are alright, but I'd say the most developed was Mokkun (my fave) which was the principal point of interest to the whole series.
The songs weren't all that great, but somewhat tolerable in read more

Shounen Onmyouji is an interesting piece of work. Comprised lot of flashy effects, spirits, demons, the underworld, and gods. Lots of plot twists as well.

The story centers around Masahiro no Abe, a young boy of only 13 years old. Yet everyone expects great things of him due to being the grandson and pronounced heir to Seimei no Abe, an extremely powerful Onmyouji (priest) of ancient Japan. Masahiro quickly runs into a number of other characters including his new partner Mokkun. Together they begin to work out problems with marauding demons and other spiritual creatures.
The plot eventually unfolds around them but by that time if you read more

Recommendations

Both shows features a bishounen with a supernatural servant/friend of sorts with a close relationship nearing shounen-ai (although this isn't the case). The main characters are both onmyoujis, and both shows have an arc-based/episodic setting where the characters help others or generally fight to protect themselves from monsters or the antagonists, while having character development present throughout the series.
Both have ayakashi and the protaganists have ayakashi familiars. Other similar areas can also be found if you watch ^^
Both deal with exterminating demons or spirits. In both anime the protagonists have a demon follower (Nyanko - Natsume Yuujinchou / Mokkun - Shounen Onmyouji) which are very similar to each other.
A young boy must succeed his famous grandfather. Both also have supernatural and fantasy themes.

Both anime are set in our own world, thou in diffrent times (Shounen Onmoyouji is set several houndreds years ago, Ghost Hunt is set in present day world) and they are about individuals exorcising evil spirits and protecting others from curses.
It should be noted, that althought both anime have very similar main theme, Shounen is more action oriented and Ghost Hunt is more about puzzle solving.

The concept of magic. The essence of power. The mystery of origins. Tokyo Ravens and Shounen Onmyouji produces similar themes in relation to one another.

In their perspective worlds, both series focuses on supernatural beings and powerful spells practiced through the art of Onmyoudo. The main characters are descendants from a line of powerful ancestry. Their origins holds mysteries as both series unravel their secrets. Settings does different in terms of time period. However, the atmosphere feels similar with a taste of Japanese mythological lore.
