Synopsis

During World War II, Japan sought to turn the tide of the war through the use of magic and enlisted the aid of Yakou Tsuchimikado, a genius user of onmyodo magic. However, something went amiss near the end of the war. A ritual gone wrong caused what would be known as the “Great Disaster” and left Tokyo as a hotbed of spiritual activity from that point on.

Over fifty years later, Tokyo Ravens begins when Harutora Tsuchimikado, a member of the prestigious Tsuchimikado family born without the ability to sense spiritual power, is attacked by Suzuka, a powerful onmyodo-user. She mistakenly believes him to be the heir of the Tsuchimikado family and intends to enact the very same ritual that led to the “Great Disaster” in the past. In order to defeat her, Harutora fulfills a childhood promise he made to Natsume, the true heir of their family, and he becomes her familiar to aid her in a battle between onmyouji.

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.

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.
