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.

Sousei no Onmyouji was really high in the expectations in my book, especially since the author of Naruto himself recommended reading the manga. Well, I guess Naruto fans might enjoy it, but I sure as heck DIDN'T.
STORY: 1/10

Behold, the insanely unique story about heroes beating monsters! Yeah. That's it. Oh, I guess there's a parallel world too, because that makes it an absolute must watch!

the use of irony to mock or convey contempt.

In all seriousness, the plot of Sousei no Onmyouji is completely ripped through and through, and I honestly have nothing good to say about it, so I'll make this short: If you have read more

Dropped after episode 29.
Sousei no Onmyouji is Spring 2016 season's average shounen anime with a theme that has already been used many times. It might seem at least a bit nice at first but, it quickly becomes a somewhat repetitive and uninteresting ride. However, the anime has a little special charm of its own and decently developed characters (at least, before the original arc). But, is that enough to call Sousei no Onmyouji a good anime?

Since the majority of the reviews are negative for this series, I'll go ahead and make a possitive one.
I think the series is quite cool, sure it's a bit whimsy at times, and some of the jokes fall flat, but put that aside and you have a series with cool battles and an awesome dubstep soundtrack.

That should be more than enough to enjoy this, cool battles and dubstep, I think so at least, sure some of you nerds are hard to please, and will probably yell something like *"NO!!! THAT'S NOT ENOUGH!!!!!!"* or *I HATE EVERYTHING THAT'S NOT NARUTURD!!!!*.

Well, I'm simple and I happen to read more

Do you like Shounen?
Do you like Exorcists?

If you answered yes to the two, then this show is definitely a show you might want to consider giving a chance. However, it starts as pretty average and kiddy for a shounen series for about 8 episodes before it starts becoming something worthwhile.

The story can be simplified to "chosen one" kids with sad background stories fight to save the world as onmyouji with mild romance. It's a plot progression that has been repeated quite often in the Shounen genre, but it's still entertaining enough for me to watch it without getting too bored. However, later in read more
