posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The September issue of Fujimi Shobo's Dragon Magazine will reveal on Saturday that the anime adaptation of Kouhei Azano's Tokyo Ravens light novel series will premiere on Tokyo MX in October.
The school supernatural fantasy centers around Harutora, a boy from a branch of the Tsuchimikado family of onmyōdō occult practitioners. However, he lacks the ability to see spirit energy, so he is now just an ordinary high school student. Natsume, a girl who was Harutora's childhood friend and the next head of the Tsuchimikado family, reunites with Harutora and changes his future.
The official website for the anime had announced the cast and staff in May.
