The Japanese publishing house Fujimi Shobo has announced some great new for the otaku who love to watch great fantasy adaptation of cute light novel series. Kouhei Azano’s Tokyo Ravens stories about a couple of related onmyouji will be getting an anime series! This was somehow expected considering the ongoing manga adaptation in one of the most popular mangazines – Monthly Shounen Ace.
Now, let me introduce to you the story in depth: we follow the young high school student Harutora who comes from a onmyoudou family but is incapable of seeing spirits and thus, cannot do his duties. Instead, he’s just a simple, ordinary student. One day, though, he meets and reunites with the Tsuchimikado family’s (his family) future heir – Natsume. She, on the other hand, is very able and a prospering member of the clan. When she asks him to join her, which he gladly accepts especially since they’re childhood friends, Harutora’s life takes a turn for the… more fun.
The following is a video preview directly coming from the publishing house. There’s no real animation in it, though. Still too early!
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
