Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Fans of folklore may enjoy this supernatural anime series that explores some interesting myths and ideas. Onmyoji is an anime that seems rooted in Japanese culture and folklore and the practices of onmyoji (a spiritual practitioner). While the traditional beliefs and myths may be embellished for entertainment, they're still fun to see. Demons and enemies are defeated in interesting ways, often being hindered by past events that turned them into monsters. Characters must find ways to help them find peace by overcoming these events.
