An official website has opened for the previously announced supernatural action TV anime Sousei no Onmyouji, revealing the first key visual. The series will be animated by Studio Pierrot for broadcast in 2016.

Avex Pictures will exhibit the series on December 19 and 20 at Jump Festa 2016, which will be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Fusion musical group Wagakki Band will perform the theme song of the series.

Sousei no Onmyouji is adapted from the manga by Yoshiaki Sukeno. The manga has been serialized in Jump SQ since November 2013, and an English edition is being published by VIZ Media in North America under the title Twin Star Exorcists.

I'd love for you explain your reasoning behind your first statement in your second paragraph with supporting evidence because for someone that doesn't mind cliche's, your words here speak otherwise considering that this series isn't anywhere near as bad as you and a few others here are letting on

Edgy, yes but honestly I don't understand where this automatic hate for dark and gritty series even came from these days....It's not like the tone of this series is bad either

And no, I'm not attacking you


Yeah, I didn't explained my second statement, what I tried to say is that, even when a serie is full of cliche, it can be good when they aren't putting one after another in the most generic way to the point where you can see everything that it will happen in the next fews pages, take for example One Piece (I will be hated for this but :D), the serie is full of cliche, but the way Oda put them doesn't make the manga too generic. I like generic series, but some of them are really bad for me when they use several plot points that either came from nowhere or are just there for the sake of appeal by using aspects that appeared on successful series. This manga is bad for me (If I could rate, 4 or 5), simple because I don't enjoy neither the story, or characters and the amount of cliches makes the series really just your average shounen without anything new, but the art is average, at least.

I didn't said anything about being edgy and I don't have a reason for this, but I can see that in this forum anything that tries to be either smart, mature, or "deep" will be tagged as such.

And why would I think that you were attacking me!? Oh, it's MAL after all.
Fair enough bro....I disagree with some of what you said but hey, everyone has a different opinion

And LMFAO at the One Piece thing, I know some people that would crucify you for saying something like that xD

(Face palm) We are not even in the first sentence of your argument and already You are falling at this SMH People who have not read the Manga can't have an opinion since the base of it don't Exist and No this Not a Cliche Manga ( really I don't understand where you are getting your BS Claim from ? ) there are No power ups, No Friendship no Jutsu ,No heart of the Cards. If anything this Manga really Fucking dark and I don't want to spoil But the MC is far from such a good guy.


It took some time for me to understand what you were saying, but no cliche? It's fucking dark, then it's mean it's good or smart!? If someone dislike then he didn't read it!? Since for some reason my opinion is null, because if I dislike this manga, this mean I didn't read it, I will stop this discussion, it's beyond retard discuss with you.
OKay so after reading your post 5 times , (wasn't Easy ) What Are you talking about ? as far as I know your not the one I was talking about http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1452700 everyone in this thread has not seen this Manga so Yes they are idiots for forming an Opinion that dose not exist. ( Feels like I'm talking to a wall so I'm done )

Is this a joke!? Very funny! Your best argument is to claim that anyone who doesn't like the manga didn't read it, sorry it can be odd for you, but there are peoples who dislike this manga.

Now, the manga isn't good and full of cliche, while I don't mind cliche, they are beyond bad in this manga - then we have Pierrot to animate it we a really bad Key Visual. I hate to say that something will be bad based on expectation before it release, but this one REALLY looks bad.
