Description
The Onmyou Taisenki manga does not tell the same history as the anime. The story happens years before the events in the anime.

The main character, Yakumo (who also appears on the anime, as a teenager) is the son of Monju, the chef priest of the Taihaku Temple, in Kyoto. Yakumo also trains the In, with a baseball ball. In this temple, a Toujinshi (闘神土, literally 'god of war'), and Monju's former teacher, Mahoroba, is imprisioned.

The problems start when Mahoroba escapes, gains power, and transforms Monju into stone. Yakumo is called by a Zero Drive, which was one of the treasures of the temple. This Zero Drive handles Byakko no Kogenta. The story of the manga is about Yakumo's first steps with a Shikigami, training with Idzuna (Taihaku Temple's shrine maiden) and seeking Mahoroba through various Japanese historical dates. Famous Japanese historical characters such as Oda Nobunaga can be seen on the manga.

Reminded me of Naruto a lot of times.

Don't read too much into that, though. It's not really similar to it in that sense.

It was a little art, a little character design, some parts with Mahoraba. At least I THINK that's why I was reminded of Naruto.

Most of it was pretty dull and bland, and some parts felt way too market-y. "We're trying to sell a new card game and other stuff."

But there was nothing wrong with any of it. It wasn't new. It has all been done before. And those three volumes dragged on a lot more than they should have. But if you've read everything out there that you want to read, and you're looking for some standard shounen, it might keep you occupied. Just don't buy it.

It's entertaining, but that's it. The rest is pretty unoriginal and uncreative. The themes are found in so many other mangas, that I was skimming over a bunch of text at times.

entertaining but not many new things. almost everything seen before. no unexpected plot twists. art reminds me of Kurozakuro a bit. I prefer that one thou. if you go and read it, dont expect too much and you will be fine. smile
