Can’t believe the last update I did for this game was in 2012 ^^;; Anyway before we knew it, Tokyo Onmyouji will be available in 9 days’ time! The official site didn’t release any H-voices, so I guess I can’t tell if the main uke character would be any good… I’m rather out-of-touch with the newer seiyuus voicing BL.
Anyway, check out the countdown voices released daily till the release!

Ah~ 2013… This will be a long wait but let’s keep our fingers crossed that the game will be completed when the release date comes. I haven’t received my copy of Cool-B yet and it probably has more information.
The artist for this new BL game is Sakamoto Akira 坂本あきら. She is the same illustrator who also did the art for Yandere Heaven series.
Why are these seiyuus’ pseudonyms in kanji mostly related to birds ^^;; Big bird, sparrow and falcon.

Some information about what an Onmyouji is.
According to wiki, Onmyouji (陰陽師) was one of the classifications of civil servants belonging to the Bureau of Onmyou in ancient Japan’s ritsuryo system. People with this title were professional practitioners of onmyoudou.
Onmyouji were specialists in magic and divination. Their court responsibilities ranged from tasks such as keeping track of the calendar, to mystical duties such as divination and protection of the capital from evil spirits. They could divine auspicious or harmful influences in the earth, and were instrumental in the moving of capitals. It is said that an onmyouji could also summon and control shikigami.
Famous onmyouji include Kamo no Yasunori and Abe no Seimei (921–1005). After Seimei’s death the emperor had a shrine erected at his home in Kyoto.
Onmyouji had political clout during the Heian period, but in later times when the imperial court fell into decline, their state patronage was lost completely. In modern day Japan onmyouji are defined as a type of Shinto priest, and although there are many that claim to be mediums and spiritualists, the onmyouji continues to be a hallmark occult figure.
There isn’t any Onmyouji BL games I can recall from recent memory but I definitely love these supernatural themes and of course, handsome guys in traditional Japanese clothing.
