I already asked this but I didn't register so here we go again. I can’t remember much, as I saw it when I was younger (around 2006). But this boy acquires "the devil's horns" and it gives him powers. Also when he flies he leaves like gold dust particles in the air. I'm pretty sure he went to a school too and it was a crow in the school's yard that told him about his horns. Any help?

  • 2 things: a) I don't believe you are supposed to repost questions in order to bring attention to them, there are other ways b) you should merge your accounts – eshier Mar 26 '18 at 20:56
  • Welcome (back) to the site! @eshier is right that you generally shouldn't repost questions; in this case, since you can't access the old question with your unregistered account, I've closed and deleted that one in favour of this one. Good luck finding the anime! :-) – Rand al'Thor Mar 26 '18 at 21:30

    Where does the boy keep the devil's horns after he acquires them? In his sock drawer? In a shoe box? In a safe deposit box? It would be hard to keep them safe from being repossessed by the devil. – M. A. Golding Mar 27 '18 at 18:10

This sounds like Blue Exorcist, in that:

  • The protagonist learns he's the son of Satan and gains horns (as well as fangs and a tail)
  • The protagonist gains powers
  • The protagonist goes to school
  • There is a crow character, Gufu

He doesn't leave gold dust particles in the air when he flies, but he does leave blue energy trails in the air.

However, the series came out in 2011, which doesn't quite fit your timeline. Are you sure it wasn't a little later?

  • That was going to be my answer if you hadn't gotten to it first. :-) – ShadoCat Mar 28 '18 at 21:03
