Onmyoudou magic was once a powerful technique used by the Japanese during the second World War in order for them to gain the upper hand and establish their nation as a formidable force. But Japan was quickly defeated after the revered onmyouji Yakou Tsuchimikado caused the "Great Spiritual Disaster," an event which plagues Tokyo to this very day. As a result of this mishap, the Onmyou Agency was established in order to exorcise further spiritual disasters and combat the demons that would make their way into the world.

Now, Onmyoudou has become far more modern, simplified, and refined for use in a wide variety of applications such as medicine and technology. However, not everyone is able to utilize the magic, as is the case with Harutora, a member of the Tsuchimikado's branch family. Despite an old promise to protect Natsume, the heir of the Tsuchimikado's main family and Yakou's supposed reincarnation, as her familiar, Harutora has no talent and chooses to live a normal life instead. But when a prominent member of the Onmyou Agency attempts to recreate the same experiment which led to Japan's downfall, he decides to make good on his word and fight by Natsume's side.

So, the general consensus with Tokyo Ravens is: it's fun to watch but it's totally unoriginal. I found while watching this anime that this statement was either true or completely opposite, and that fluctuation between good and bad is what's going to make it super difficult to write this review. Leaving aside the animation that could be decently done at times (like during certain battles) or bad at others and the sound design, which was bizarre to say the least (songs either fit or really, really didn't), the story and the characters are the two hot topics for me with this anime.

Mixed Feelings
It’s not bad, I don’t take it to seriously but I can at least say it isn’t awful. It’s a pretty predictable plot so don’t expect something completely new, with this mindset I watched and I enjoyed most of the episodes and it was an effective way to past time.

The art was alright, I’d say the design was not bad but not the greatest either
The story was okay, it might be because I wasn’t expecting much so I’m fine with what they threw but it was kind of predictable but it was the worst.
The characters weren’t bad and I do think the anime ended up ...

I was interested in this anime because I listened to the first opening theme on Youtube and grewinterested what kind of series was paired with the song. I gotta say it's not that impressive and my expectation wasn't even high, the premise very cool with the idea of eastern religous practices with magic combat though the series is centered around that it doesn't really even do a good job giving a superficial explanation, it could be the adaptation skipping on minor parts from the source material that would've fleshed out how the magics of this series worked but I'm forced to sit back and ...
