Touma Kamijo's right hand has the ability to nullify any form of supernatural power, whether it be magical, psychic, or divine; he lives in a city populated by students with these powers. Yet unfortunately for Touma, his arm also seems to nullify good luck. Despite his bad luck, the boy tries to stay out of trouble and just live out his life, trying to be the "good guy" whenever he can; but trouble enters his life one day when he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony. She turns out to be a nun of the Church of England, bearing the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum - a collection of 103,000 forbidden texts, and as a result has a number of people after her. How far will Touma go to protect his new companion from her pursuers?
Plot wise they arent quite similar, but I feel as the theme of Magic and familiars remind me of the magic in Index and more specifically the way Stiyl used it (Talismans and summoning).Another thing to add is that the music is done by the same people (Kurosaki Maon does the first opening and Kawada Mami does the second ending) Any way i think if you enjoy Index Tokyo Ravens is definitely one to check out.
If u look for complex "technical" magic system, and magic duels check both series.
TAMnI is more focus on symbolism/philozophy and characters when TR is more focus on big back stories with many "historical figures" in that universum.

Tokyo Ravens and Blue Exorcist both have school life and magic intertwined in their plots. The main characters are some what serious but are always having comic moments. If you like one or the other, you are bound to enjoy the other. I highly recomend Blue Exorcist if you enjoyed Tokyo Ravens!
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Darker than Black and Tokyo Ravens both are supernatural. They have this unclear feeling through the anime, like something is kept a secret and a bit mysterious. Both get this feeling cleared in the end, in the super climax in the last ep where all the action takes place, and in the final 1/2 minutes they set up a new mystery "What happened after ? and did everything finish OK or did something got screwed up ?". That way both animes leave you guessing at the end xD

Shinto magic mixed with technology, reincarnations, magic schools and even some romance: RDG and Tokyo Ravens both combine these elements with varying degrees of success. The greatest difference is in terms of emphasis, RDG gives more attention to slice-of-life and character growth while Tokyo Ravens prefers action and is overall more generic.
