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 generally try to have an open mind when it comes to anime, and when I start a new series I attempt to take as few preconceptions into it as possible. That said, when I started Tokyo Ravens I had already pretty much given up on it. The promotional artwork and brief synopsis I read, while somewhat interesting, gave me the vague impression of a mediocre anime with throwaway characters and a wasted chance at a good plot. I write this review in an attempt to dispel those misconceptions in anyone else.

I liked it overall, to be honest.

The story itself, I feel is pretty unique, I rarely see any anime with elements of Shaman besides Shaman King but I will admit that I haven't watch enough anime to actually warrant it unique. But, there were times whereby you would feel it's rushed in some episodes. I personally feel that some instances of the show might not have been explained properly. (I looked it up the forum to see what actually happened as some people read the light novel and kindly explained it in the forum.)

I personally like the art, animation of the characters and especially the read more

Tokyo Ravens is surprisingly not entirely about ravens. Tokyo Ravens is about shamanism infused in the modern world. This show is apparently average at best but it did not fail to entertain me. In the end, I really enjoyed it.

Tokyo Ravens has no major problems in the story but its exposition sometimes is tedious. First half can be lacking in actual story and action but it was justified by the second half. The characters are created well but development seems rushed sometimes. Drama in Tokyo Ravens is basically the story’s weakest point. A good example of this is when Tenma was guilty in the Douman read more

Recommendations

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.
In both shows, students are training to become slayers of demons.
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.
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.

-main characters undergo similar transformation and appearance
+similar personalities
-both have a "tutor" figure
-similar atmosphere and soundtracks
Both are associated with school

Both have to do with Ranks and Levels (Like the top level 5 espers and and 12 divine generals)

Both main characters specailties are punching someone in the face ending the situation
