Synopsis

In the "Great Disaster," Japan has been thrown into chaos by onmyouji (a kind of magician). Harutora Tsuchimikado was born into an onmyouji family, but has no power whatsoever. His childhood friend Natsume (another member of the Tsuchimikado family) appears to him one day to take him up on the promise he made long ago to become her shikigami (familiar). A battle between onmyouji is about to begin.

Tokyo Ravens Review:

Sometimes shows come around that are completely generic and average on paper, but are unusually fun to watch. Looking at my 6 score for this show, many of you may think I didn't think the show was good. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Tokyo Ravens wasn't groundbreaking, memorable, or brilliant. In fact, it was pretty a pretty generic fantasy action anime with romance elements which is why I withhold too high of a score. However, Tokyo Ravens is without a doubt a very enjoyable show.

Where Tokyo Ravens' story shines isn't through it's rather generic premise or predictable read more

I´ll admit that I fell pretty stupid for putting this anime on hold for such a long time. As it started of with a meh and ended with a YEAH, this anime was surprisingly fun to watch.

As I started watching this anime, I had a feeling that the main character Harutora was going to be one of those boring mains to watch in the long run, but as I kept following the story, it became more and more interesting to follow this boring main and his friends. Taking on enemy after enemy, trying to become powerful shamans (exorcists) was only a fraction of what the read more

-I'm going to skip the synopsis as you can go ahead and read that on your own - I'm strictly writing a review as to my reaction when watching Tokyo Ravens-

To be honest, when I first began watching this show I felt as though I was lacking originality, in both character and story. The originality wasn't so bad like 'I've seen it a million times' sort of deal, but It was interesting enough to make me want to watch the next episode. The characters seemed overdone and over the top, opening with the feisty chick friend of the male protagonist picking on him and his read more

There’s a saying that goes something like this: “two wrongs don’t make a right”. In Tokyo Ravens, this doesn’t apply as onmyouji magic is accepted by society as a form of dealing with spirits and apparitions in general. The show builds itself with the basic concepts and principles of a modern fantasy involving characters dealing with onmyouji, otherworldy beings that have been causing trouble in Japan. While most anime involving magic is forbidden, Tokyo Ravens takes the liberty to accept it as a form of art. Thus begins the adventurous tale of Harutora Tsuchimikado as he learns the truth about the world he lives in.

Recommendations

Anime: Strike the Blood
The main characters from both series are very similar. Harutora from Tokyo Ravens and Kojou are both dense, unlucky but awesome/epic at the same time. They were living a normal life until their lives changed. In Tokyo Raven: Harutora became an Onmyoji while in Strike The Blood: Kojou is a vampire. Both series takes place in a modern city filled with interesting characters. Add some supernatural elements and mystery too. Both series airing at the same time.

Anime: Ao no Exorcist
In both shows, students are training to become slayers of demons.

Anime: Campione!: Matsurowanu Kamigami to Kamigoroshi no Maou
Similarities:

The same situation where the guy becomes a sought after majou by a group of hot chicks.

The same guys who were reluctant to even be a majou.

Dissimilarities:

One is a 13 episode anime while the other is a 24 episode long.

The harem share their man with one another, while here, hummmm we're yet to find out.

Anime: Shounen Onmyouji
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.

Anime: Noragami
Tokyo Ravens and Noragami come with the package of dealing with spiritual beings with magic/abilities. The main male protagonist often comes in contact with these beings in their perspective worlds.

Both series' main male protagonist has a past that is explored throughout their stories. Through them, certain plot elements are unraveled that ties together with its themes.

Both series also takes place in a school life setting.. Tokyo Ravens has more romance while Noragami presents excellent comedy with its humorous dialogues and character interactions.
