The future of animation is looking beautiful!
The animation. Its just lovely. 8-Bit did an excellent job on the animation.
Tokyo Ravens was one of the anime series was not entirely sure how it will pan out much like with Diabolik Lovers, Strike the Blood, and Unbreakable Machine-Doll. Diabolik Lovers turned out pretty amazing. Strike the Blood though turned out to be very promising even more so then the other anime series following. Unbreakable Machine-Doll is sort of interesting even though have my doubts if it can continue to be so. Tokyo Ravens though turned out better than expected!
The story was one really liked since we really do not know a lot about Harutora who is the main guy character and his past but we can tell he is part of a family of magic mages (magician). He just happens to not possess magic to be one since he is part of the branch family which is lower in social status. Natsume is the main girl character who belongs to the head family with strong magi its hinted at which was not yet shown.
Harutora struggles with applying for a future in magic feeling like a loser. He has made a promise to Natsume his childhood friend but now has doubts about himself having any talent to be her backup partner or “familiar”.
The supernatural world if delved further has a lot of interesting angles it an head in so that should make the anime series interesting. Characters are looking good and voice acting is nicely done. The animation again is so wonderful! The anime series have a feeling may turn out to be the best the Fall 2013 Anime Season has to offer close to Valvrave the Liberator 2, Strike the Blood, and Diabolik Lovers.
Tokyo Ravens (12 episodes)
In the “Great Disaster,” Japan has been thrown into chaos by onmyouji (a kind of magician). Harutora Tsuchimikado was born into an onmyouji family, but has no power whatsoever. His childhood friend Natsume (another member of the Tsuchimikado family) appears to him one day to take him up the promise he made long ago to become her shikigami (familiar). A battle between onmyouji is about to begin. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)
