What Is Tokyo Ravens About?
Bringing the beauty of magic to light, Tokyo Ravens carefully plots the story of Harutora, the ordinary outlier of the powerful and magical family clan Tsuchimikado.
He was the only one from his clan with no spiritual powers. Handling the honor of his lineage while trying to lead a simple life with his friends from the Onmyo Branch School was his way of living.
That was until his life took a turn with the appearance of his childhood friend Tsuchimikado Natsume. The Yakou incarnated heir and the spiritless adventurer take on fantastical journeys against the rival Onmyo agency.
Even though the show belongs to the comedy genre, it discusses heavy themes of resurrection, astrology, and philosophy in fair depths.
The tropes on sacrifice and love are dealt with great focus too. The anime does a good job adapting the novel series, and it is an enjoyable show, as received by viewers.
Will There Be A Second Season?
Now, we all have been dying to know what happens to Natsume and the entire plot, but unfortunately, that seems like a lost cause.
There has been no official statement on the show’s comeback, but the lack of information regarding the production of the second season, and practically no actions from the studio’s side has made us all expect the worst.
What Happens After Season 1’S Ending?
That is a question we would all get the answer to in the light novel series, which continues for 16 more volumes.
If you are curious about the plot itself, then do follow up on the novel series, or the manga adaptation, which stays loyal to the original. If you want to know what happens right away, read further.
Harutora’s Fate In Tokyo Ravens
In the end, things grow stranger as Harutora is seen resurrecting Natsume, which was conveyed by their helper Saotome Suzu, as a successful ritual.
This is more aptly explained in Volume 10, chapter 3 of the novel series, where the technicality is emphasized.
However, later we discover Natsume resting on a bed in the daylight, while Harutora abodes the last goodbye.
What kept fans on edge was the very existence of Harutora. Other fan theories suggest that the bright room was a metaphor in itself.
There are endless questions still unanswered, and unless we get to know about an official confirmation that Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Release Date, we have to fend ourselves with the manga at hand
Does Natsume Die At The End Of Tokyo Ravens?
We will refrain from giving out spoilers to the anime watchers, but we can say that Natsume does not reach a good fate as the plot unfolds in the novel series. The raven coat tool develops to be her prime enemy.
