Synopsis

The story is set in an alternate world called Yamauchi, ruled by the Yatagarasu clan, who are able to transform between human and crow forms. Yukiya, a beautiful and eccentric Yatagarasu boy, is chosen to serve the young prince. While encountering various events in the conspiracy-filled imperial court, he forms a strange master-servant relationship with the young prince.

Preliminary (6/20 eps)
Why is everyone sleeping on this anime? This is by far the best series of the spring 2024 season. Please give this anime a go, you will not be disappointed! This is by far one of the most unique stories out there. Humans turning into giant Ravens? What? Yes, giant ravens....with 3 legs! Amazing visuals, art, and scenery....check. Great characters, romance, political strife, and story driven action and drama make this a nearly god tier anime in my books. WATCH THIS ANIME!!!!!! NOW!!!!! We can't let gems like this get canceled after one season, while dog water trash series like MHA are somehow still chugging ...

Preliminary (4/20 eps)
Yatagarasu is the anime equivalent of NHK’s Taiga drama, a historical television series highlighting certain prominent figures in Japanese history broadcasted every year (the last one I watched was Sanada Maru from eight years ago, highly recommend that one if you haven’t seen it already). The story follows two second-born sons and their political conflicts, one as the crown prince and the other as a servant to the former, during what looks to be the Heian era (per the show it takes place at Yamauchi in an alternate universe). Although the concept of power struggles within the imperial court and bureaucracy in general are not ...
