Synopsis

Magano, a parallel realm filled with monsters known as "Kegare," is a place where exorcists deal with all impurities. Benio Adashino is a prodigy exorcist who is recognized for her strength and is summoned to Tokyo by the Exorcist Union. On her way, she plummets into the arms of Rokuro Enmadou, a young exorcist with a troubled past.

But the impurities of Magano do not rest. When these two exorcists witness a couple of children stolen by a Kegare, Benio rushes to save them, dragging Rokuro along with her into Magano. Engaged in a fight she is on the verge of being defeated in, Benio is saved by Rokuro, revealing himself capable of being her rival in talent.

Sousei no Onmyouji tells the story of two talented exorcists who are destined to become the "Twin Star Exorcists" and the prophesised parents of the Miko—the reincarnation of Abe no Seimei—who will cleanse the world of all impurities.

I feel that these 8.5 words describe the entirety of this anime:
“Cliche Archetype-filled Exorcist Shounen With Many Crappy Plot Twists”

I have very mixed feelings about this show…
- Sometimes I thought, “Oh, this is such a cool kiddy shounen!”
- Sometimes I became angry at how stupid and immature the characters were.
- I often skipped through some of the many slow scenes and flashbacks.
- Sometimes I even said, “Whoa! Didn’t see that coming! Is this really a kids show? wtf?” when some pretty dark things happened
- However, most importantly, by the end I thought to myself “Wow, this is pretty fucking bad.”

I honestly thought this show read more

The word 'adaptation' for anime has quite a flexible definition. Most often, the term 'adaptation' means that the production company takes the source material and tries their best to make a carbon copy of the series that they decided to make in animated form. But at the same time, the word 'adaptation' can mean "based on" the original source material, and have their own anime-original plots and endings that contradict what the original series may have entailed. Twinstar Exorcists, or Sousei no Omnyouji is an example of the latter.

** Spoiler Free **

~ If I had one dollar for every time someone said "I want to get stronger" during the anime, I would have been rich!~

Characters: I liked the affectionate involvement of the main characters, Benio and Rokuro. They grow and mature throughout the series, they support and motive each other in order to achieve their goal.

Story: The plot unfolds slowly and personally I got bored. It got a bit tedious and monotonous as we watch the protagonists "getting stronger" while more and more opponents appear. Unnecessary scenes and characters.
The comedy was funny. Maybe it was one of they best aspects of the series. read more
