    Hmm, this series is very promising and I'll be looking forward to seeing how the story will develop.
    Oh, I'm so glad to hear Kana Hanazawa also in this anime.

    If the special effects stay over level, this might be an easy watch. Not a very deep story. Personally, I like head family-branch family stuff, so, it's a fine cliché for me. The villain-like girl is one thing I wasn't fond of. Foul-mouthed kids suddenly kissing the main lead out of nowhere just to tease is too bland for my taste.

    I really liked this. HanaKana alone should make this worth watching. Ishikawa was excellent as Harutora. Should be an exciting series, if nothing else. I wonder why Dairenji was looking for Natsume, and why she was wanted by the police.

    Such misfortune, Zenkichi Harutora. Interactions are good and Hokuto steals the show. Harutora is right, he doesn't want to be an Onmyoji, they should just let him be but we all know it won't happen. I didn't like the cliff but it was surprising, if she kissed him only to annoy Hokuto it will really piss me off. Since she likes licking I guess she will use a spell on him or something.

    Re: Tokyo Ravens

    First of all: That battle OST was awesome! The OP is great too.

    The story could be very interesting.

    I think Hokuto will be the a very sad girl at the end of the show... Not only kissed a random gothic the love of her life, a different loli will be the one who will "get" Hautora in the end. Or maybe not and Hokuto can be happy...

    Anyway. One of my favourites so far.

    Good strong start and nice pick up by Funimation. Touji and Harutora are excellent leads already with interesting motivations and aspirations. With this magical world getting a bit to hitting closer to home, will be interested how they deal with it and if they can too use powerful magics like that.

    OP is really good, I needed the full song JPN.

    Re: Tokyo Ravens

    Episode 2:

    Wow that escalated quickly... Haruto was a Shikigami... But who made her?
    That blond brat deserved to be punished though... I hate her... I really do... -.-

    So did Natsume really transform the spring tiger into a Shikigami or did she just use a random technique? I didn't get that part... :/

    Looking forward to next week.

    I get the feeling Dairenji is going to be redeemed, becoming a friend of Natsume and Harutora. She just wants to save her onii-chan, and features prominently in the key visuals, with the other heroes. Harutora's comes from an ancient clan of prominent onmyouji. Almost anyone in his extended family could have created Hokuto.

    I really like Natsume and Harutora. Great characters. The CG in this show is really annoying, otherwise I really like it.

    Re: Tokyo Ravens

    2nd episode was pretty powerful. Harutora is amazing but then having to see him all teary eyed, screaming and yelling in the ran when Hokuto changed into familiar form was too sad, and kind of unforgettable. Actually it was just plain shocking seeing her take it to the chest and then just say she was fooling him and turning into paper. Confused at first but then said to see that he had a bond so strong that now was empty . .

    Ending song overplaying what happened made for a really beautiful scene.

    Re: Tokyo Ravens

    I watched the 2 eps. as I kinda liked the LN and although the anime is moving the same way as the story I feel like something missing from it. VAs are powerful animation is good but for a reason I have yet to understand it seems something is missing from the anime.

    Well so far this will be good hopefully it will be 12 ep 2 series so they wont skimp on the material to rush it.

    P.S: I would actually preferred Kanemoto as Kon than Hakuto but Toyosaki will not dissappoint anyway...

    Re: Tokyo Ravens

    Man, the scene in which Hokuto died and the consequent reaction of Harutora was really heartbreaking, that's why I really liked this episode.
    Anyway yes, Dairenji will surely become an ally to Harutora and the others sooner or later, but first she needs to be beaten a little.
    Well, guess that's all for this episode and I found Natsume really cute when she reacted to Harutora's description of Dairenji. XD

    I knew that kiss was not for nothing! Hokuto died already, I understand why she was harassing Harutora now. I am glad to see the Onmyojis in black suit are not fodder. CGI is horrendous, the shikigamis look like mecha.
