“You can badmouth me as much as you want, but don’t make fun of my brother!” – Rin
Blue Exorcist (created by Kazue Katō) tells the story of Rin Okumura, who along with his twin brother Yukio, was raised by Father Fujimoto – an Exorcist. But then Rin learns that he and Yukio are the sons of Satan, and that he has inherited Satan’s powers… So when Satan kills Fujimoto, Rin enrols in True Cross Academy. This is where he will learn to become an Exorcist in order to defeat his father!
- The art is awesome! It’s so well-drawn!
- The plot is interesting – it’s filled with action, different characters and is very well-paced! Not to mention that the series does actually have a bit of an ‘intro’ at the start! This allows you to understand what the situation is in the story and gain some insight into the world the characters live in and the lives they lead
- Although it’s obviously a shonen series and fulfils some of the more typical plot points and character tropes of the genre, this series is great because the characters that have been created by Katō are pretty funny, likeable and interesting
