The Current Status Quo: Renewed or Canceled?
The bad news? There’s been no official word on the renewal of Tokyo Ravens for a second season. The good news? “In the event of a renewal, a new season might debut in 2024,” says an insider source. Despite a considerable period of silence from the production house, hope is far from lost.
The Intriguing Plot & Its Possible Future
Our protagonist, Tsuchimikado Harutora, is a lad from a distinguished Onmyoji family, albeit without the ability to see “spirit energy.” The first season mostly revolves around him, his childhood friend Tsuchimikado Natsume, and their adventures in a branch school of Onmyo. As for Season 2? “The focus might be on the origins of demonic powers and may also reveal the Onmyoji ritual’s real purpose,” reveals an insider.

Fan Rating & Reviews
“This is undoubtedly the most underrated anime of all time. If you can overlook the poor CGI, it’s a 10/10 anime. Suspense is also awesome.”
The anime scores a decent 7.6 on IMDb and 7.45 on Myanimelist. However, it’s more than just numbers; it’s about the experience, the community, and the nail-biting moments that keep you on the edge of your seat.
Is a Second Season Financially Feasible?
According to sales data from 2013, Tokyo Ravens sold 2,247 discs on average. While this falls short of the 4,000 units that usually trigger a new season, the changing dynamics of how people consume media could be a game-changer.
The Everlasting Fandom
Despite fluctuating Google trends and disc sales, the fandom has been unwavering in their support. Petitions and social media campaigns have been in full swing for almost a decade. “A sequel is still in demand from enthusiasts,” confirms a source close to the situation.
