Kantarou Ichinomiya is a folklorist and part-time youkai
exterminator. When Kantarou was young he was teased and tormented because he could see and communicate with youkai of
all kinds. But he was told there was a powerful demon eating tengu locked away somewhere, and Kantaro made it his
mission to find this tengu and name him Haruka.
Years later, he gets that chance. Kantaro finally finds and frees the famed demon eating tengu.
Tactics is kind of like...it's the mutant child of Kyou Kara Maou and Natsume Yuujinchou . XD; The characters in Tactics
are a bit more type-written (read: brooding, kind-hearted, non-human bishonen with a dark, past, and diminished
abilities, a powerful, talented, money-loving protagonist with obfuscating stupidity problems, a quiet, doll-like little
psychic girl, etc.) than in either of the aforementioned series, but not in a bad way. It's more nostalgic than chafing.
'__'; The animation wobbles between dodgy & lovely, and the music, as a whole, is rather adorable.
Actually, come to, it has a really similar feel to Rurouni Kenshin. 0__o; Except, Kenshin's old enough that its characters weren't stock!tacular when it was written. *laughs*
In short, the series is fun. Nothing deep and beautiful, easily liked and definitely worth a watch. Especially for fans of Japanese folklore. X3
Story of a spiritualist/author who frees a goblin from its prison. Follows their story together, and the fox demon who serves the main character, has a few funny parts and some depressing ones as well.
