Strike the Blood is what it is. I liked it because of the characters and how Kojou was O.P. but at the same time wasn't as strong as a few characters. Yes the "This is Our Fight" was hair pulling, but I found her tolerable in most other respects so even she gets a pass in my eyes. The main reason it was better than Tokyo Ravens for me is that you're not supposed to understand the Onmyou mystic's power, but they go to great lengths to make sure you understand what it is Kojou just did and why he did it. Understanding stuff makes me happy.

Finally have time to watch the last ep.
8/10. Among the similar magic-themed shows this season, Tokyo Ravens is much more better.

The ending was pretty much a copy of the manga/LN which is still ongoing, so it's more to do with the fact that Harutora can't actually be with Natsume due to some issues with the Taizen Fukun ritual. Remember, she's only "technically" alive. He's likely out there trying to finalize the ritual and is protective of natsume so doesn't want to take her along.

Not sure of any lingering personality clashes between Hurrtora and Yakou, mainly because I actually think they've very much alike even without the whole soul reincarnation thing. I think it's more like Harutora is now Harutora + Yakou in terms of memories. The reason I think they're alike is actually during the scene where Yakou excitedly grabs Hishamaru and introduces himself.

I actually thought Toiji's ogre aspect was Hishimaru, jokes on me!

I would give the series 8/10 because it was entertaining and had growth to the characters, I would definitely enjoy getting a second season too.

If that's they case, they should have explained it better in the anime.
