Onmyoji plot summary

Two exorcists, Minamoto no Hiromasa and Abe no Seimei, come together to deal with demons who ravage through the human world for one reason or another. Their partnership is unlikely, as one is ruthless when it comes to expelling demons, while the other has a softer approach to demons, going so far as to find some of them “endearing.” Nevertheless, these opposites attract so well that there’s little to nothing that can stop them.

Read more of the official synopsis below (via Netflix Media Center):

"Together with his partner Minamoto no Hiromasa, the legendary onmyoji oracle Abe no Seimei works to solve crimes wherein the human and demon worlds have collided. In this anime based on a series of novels, Abe no Seimei takes on never-before-seen adventures in entirely new episodes.In the prosperous capital of Heian-kyo, Minamoto no Hiromasa, a court musician and grandson of Emperor Daigo, visits the Bureau of Onmyo to try and solve the mystery of a demon that is terrorizing the city. There, he is introduced to a man who is up to the challenge: an impersonal but exceptional onmyoji named Abe no Seimei."
