Baku Yumemakura’s Onmyoji is a collection of historical fantasy short stories and novels. It tells the story of a fictionalized Heian period Abe no Seimei, a master of a traditional Japanese form of cosmology named Onmydo. Abe no Seimei meets and befriends the hapless noble Minamoto no Hiromasa who work together to protect Heian-capital kyou’s from a clashing onmyoji, Douson, who is covertly plotting the emperor’s demise.

The series included novels and picture books in addition to short stories before games on its names were added. Two Onmoji games were released by NetEase which got inspired by the novels. Onmyoji was a turn-based RPG that was released first, which was followed by Onmyoji Arena, a strategy MOBA, which was more popular than its predecessor.

At the Netflix TUDUM event held on September 2022, it was first announced that Onmyoji would receive its first anime adaptation, which would be exclusive to Netflix. Later, the confirmation has been guaranteed and looks like it will be arriving any time soon.
