Light Novel: Tokyo Ravens

In World War II the Japanese military approached the genius onmyoji Yakou Tsuchimikado, seeking new weapons to further the country's ambitions of becoming a world power. With their resources he was able to rewrite the book on magic, creating a modernised form of Onmyodo with incredible power. Yakou was regarded as a hero or even a figure of worship... until he brought about the Great Spirit Disaster in Tokyo during a Last Stand to avert Japan's defeat. While Yakou died in the Disaster, magic and Magitek derived from his teachings are still in use today.

Harutora Tsuchimikado comes from a branch of the same prestigious family as Yakou, but his ability to detect spirit energy is zero. Since he has no interest in becoming a proper onmyoji nor obligation to do so, he's been enjoying a peaceful daily life with his friends at a normal high school. And then one day his childhood friend Natsume Tsuchimikado, heir to the head family, suddenly appears...

A manga adaptation is currently running, while an anime adaptation aired in October 2013.
