Sousei no Onmyouji has officially aired since last Wednesday and fans all over the world who had the chance to watch the very first episode was cut in half for giving the anime their official reviews, some are caught by the plot, and some are not happy about it. And for those who missed the first episode of Sousei no Onmyouji, I suggest you watch it now and not let these reviews get in your way.
So what is this Sousei no Onmyouji anime all about? It is an adaptation of the manga series of the same title that is grabbing the attention for all manga fans.
Rokuro Enmadou is from a family of exorcists, but he’d rather be a singer, a soccer player or anything else but an exorcist! He’s forced to own up to his own incredible potential when new arrival Benio stirs his competitive spirit. But their rivalry gets a twist when they earn the prestigious title of “Twin Star Exorcists”—two supreme fighters fated to marry and birth the ultimate spiritual warrior!
Its too early to make judgments now but since everyone is leaning towards the comments and reviews of the people who watched it before they do, I guess there’s nothing bad on giving a first impression right?
I was a bit on the fence watching the first episode of Sousei no Onmyouji but Rokuro’s character design really grew on me this time around. It seems set up for a decent romance as well, which I never mind. Also I was surprised to see how easily Rokuro lets go of his anger towards Arima. Speaking of, Arima’s introduction was some good comedy. He seems like a character who could be a lot of fun going forward as well.
And watching Benio trying to kill Rukoro is one Tsundere moment you won’t even expect they are fated to marry each other. So I’m curious how they will put these two in developing their feelings for each other? Benio is one Tsundere you would never want to mess with. Though the scene they are into is kind an old style in anime world:girl thinks guy doesn’t care when he should, girl goes to excessive lengths to beat guy. And the exorcist, onmyouji types of anime is nothing new to everyone, but we will have to see if maybe we will love it or hate it on the next few episodes.
