so this manga is like a combination of
Kekkaishi- because of the exorcist
Ao no Exorcist - same as the above but from the looks of it the protagonist has an impurity weapon
Nurarihyon no Mago - well demons / impurity and stuffs
Wow this is an incredible start. JUMP SQ is really killing it in terms of the upper echelon tier quality series they are bringing to the table. Sousei no Onmyouji is definitely off to a pretty phenomenal start here. I don't think there was even anything to dislike going on. Rokuro is just as good as Rin Okumura so far for being an exorcist and maybe even bests him in terms of ability at this point in time with his cool arm move that was so powerful and larger than life. The brothers too are good characters and ones I want to see at some point in time, perhaps we'll get baddies that require them all to fight in the Magano.
Hilarious, fun, fast paced, and the heartfelt feelings so far make this a blast. Will keep following.
First chapter was pretty normal, nothing that I didn't see in other series, let's see if the series will manage to catch my attention next chapter. I'm very strict with monthly series, for me they must catch my attention in the first chapter, it is a bad start, then.

Very good chapter. Good comedy and fight were worth read.
I laughed in the end. It will be interesting. hahahahahahahaha
Good character design with the bed hair and such at the start leading to an excellent and rather fantastic fight scene. This is as good as Seraph of the End at the start too. These exorcist manga are all really good now even. Could do with out the 14 year old marriage and child plot...
Chapter 3 was ok, very classic but good and the ending paves the way for the new chapters
Benio didn't recognize Rokuro until now, but when she knew that he has a good reason to no fight, she rethought her impressions a bit. This chapter was to show that they are a good piar when they are fighting. Rokuro's spirit of fighting will increase once again along with his passion towards Benio. They will fall in love each other in future. XD
His hair whenever he just wakes up is too hilarious.
Loved the action and poses there with the actual twin star exorcists.
to sum it up in 3 words: I like it.
Not as whimsical as Binbougami Ga! but it has a good story (so far) and a nice (and small) set of characters to build on.
This should have been weakly...
To me, this is far more interesting than ao no exorcist. The pace is definitely faster. The fight between a first strong impurity and Rokuro has begun. And that guy mentioned others like him.
I think that Sq has released this manga to give D.G-M's fanbase a new manga. Why are some similarities so obvious:
- Allen's arm/Rokuro's arm
- Impurity = Dark Skinned/Noah = Dark Skinned
- Impurity family (name?)/Noah
- 1st simple impurities/1st simple akuma
- Benio and Rokuro/Lenalee and Allen
Etc... It is not D.G-m but its concept really tends to lean more to that then Ao no Excorsist.

The events od this chapter were very sudden, it seems that the author had a problem with pacing, at least in this chapter. The meeting between Benio and her utmost enemy was sudden as well, I'd expect it in the future when both, Benio and Rokuro, were stronger, not now. Something has to happen, there is no way to defeat that monster.
I have some complaints about Rokuro as well, I dislike characters who don't know what they want to do. He says evertyime that he doesn't want to be an exorcist, but even so, he goes fighting always. No one deserves one more Tsuna in your life. This is annoying. xD
Fight or not fight, choose one of them and go ahead until the very end.

Finally a decision! Now I like Rokuro.
Nothing is better than fight for your girl, even though he denies it.
Good chapter, that monster played with them and it didn't kill them because it didn't want. Benio and Rokuro will have to train harder to get winning against it.
It is really unlikely they will give birth a child, so they will train and become as strong as the Miko together.
This series won me over purely on the Benio's expressions.
Her angry and embarrassed faces are absolutely awesome. Those by themselves would make this worth reading. She's like the girl from Kimi ni Todoke if you substitute "adorableness" with "ferocity".

Caught up with this, I find it average overall but it's pretty good sometimes, since it's just the beginning it will surely get better. Rokuro doesn't look like a 14 years teenager.
Maybe it's just me but his Seigen reminds me of Levi.
Story's pace is really good, fallen impurities that is what happened back then at the dorm. Poor Mayura, I wonder how such a positive girl can change into a fallen impurity.
I wonder who this silhouette is? He's definitely (one of) the masterminds behind what at Hiinatsuki.
Anyway, this one is definitely more interesting that blue excorsist tbh
