Synopsis

Masahiro is the grandson of the great onmyouji, Abe no Seimei. However, he lost his sixth sense that enables him to see supernatural beings, which is very important for an onmyouji. Thus, he is left with no choice but to try and pick a different career. But one day, a strange mononoke appears, which he names Mokkun, who shows him his true potential powers after fighting a demon. With the assistance of Mokkun, his quest to become the greatest onmyouji begins.

-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

This is an interesting blend of various genres and I can even say it is even unorthodox. Although at first it looks like a fighting shounen / fantasy adventure ala Inuyasha, it quickly becomes a weird blend of various other genres. It is both shounen and shoujo, and even has josei elements to it. This definitely makes it feel a lot more mature and serious than your average no-brainer action show out there, but it sure doesn’t make it exciting enough to keep watching for long without getting fed up with its pacing sooner or later.

To put it simply, it is very straightforward and plain 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 a 26-episode series from Studio DEEN, the noted creators of many great anime features. However, Shounen Onmyouji proves to be the exception to the norm, and if you read this review, you'll know why.

First off, the story. The anime is set in the Heian period (794-1185) of ancient Japan. The Abe clan, long known as the most powerful spirit masters in the land, now have a new successor: Abe no Masahiro, a young boy who's destined to follow in the footsteps of his legendary grandfather, Abe no Seimei. But Masahiro wants to be more than just Seimei's grandson; he wants to make read more

Recommendations

Anime: Tactics
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.

Anime: Kekkaishi
Both have ayakashi and the protaganists have ayakashi familiars. Other similar areas can also be found if you watch ^^

Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou
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.

Anime: Nurarihyon no Mago
A young boy must succeed his famous grandfather. Both also have supernatural and fantasy themes.

Anime: Tokyo Ravens
Both animes talk about "Onmyou-do", its art and practice. Tokyo Ravens has a modern approach but Shounen Onmyouji takes it back to its traditional roots. 
reportRecommended by kiddemon86
Anime: Pandora Hearts
Both shows tell the story of a young boy who has to grow up quickly in order to fulfill his destiny and protect the people he cares about. Both Oz (PH) and Masahiro (SO) have a lot of heart and courage, and both wish to be treated like adults.

Each boy is protected by someone older than him. Both Gilbert (PH) and Guren/Mokkun (SO) have dark and difficult pasts but are able to rise above these things in order to protect the protagonist.

In addition, Akira Ishida voices a role in both anime and, though their personalities are different, Break (PH) and Seimei  read more
