Blue Exorcist: Anime Review


Blue Exorcist (Ao No Exorcist)

Stars: 5
Animation: 4
Story: 5
Character Development: 5
All together: 4.5

Blue Exorcist is about a boy named Rin Okumura and his brother Yukio and how they are the sons of Satan, while only Rin has powers. Rin doesn’t find out until he’s a certain age and the results are dire. Rin is sent to True Cross academy to become an Exorcist and harness his abilities, Rin meets friends along the way and learns hard life lessons.

The show has very many heartbreaking, feel crushing moments that will make you fall in love with the characters like Shiemi, Ryuji, Izumo and the rest of the crew. All the characters have unique stories and you love them all. You learn Yukio is a teacher at the exorcist school and he tutors Rin and is his dorm room mate. They are the only ones in that house so the others come over often and there are many stories there. The story is moving and you root for the characters the whole way, especially Rin and Shiemi.

The animation is adorable, it could be better in some places as I have seen anime’s with better animation so that is why I gave animation four stars instead of five.

    I have never seen a Japanese show like this before, but the trailer looks interesting for sure. Very cool show.

  4. Jasmine Bee says:

    My son who’s a big anime fan would probably love this. I’ve watched a few with him and loved the ones I’ve seen so far. But he would be way more excited than myself. Nice review!

  5. Isn’t the trailer in German? I have watched a few of these types of shows and always find them fascinating, even if I don’t know what they are talking about.

      Oops it might be >.< sorry for the mistake, I'll go look for the original Japanese one. Thank you for catching that There is an English dub version too!

  6. I feel like there is an American movie similar to this. The man is on the fence of becoming a priest and wants to train on how to do the exorcism. I think he ends up falling for one of the ladies he performs on….

  7. I find subtitles difficult. I’m trying to read while I’m trying to watch what is happening. I always seem to miss something. Great review.

  8. Amber Myers says:

    Eek, this movie sounds scary! I’m not sure if I could watch it. I can’t do a lot of horror films because I jump too much.

    I bet my son would love this. He’s just starting to get into Anime a bit. I lived in Japan for two years, so I love anything that reminds me of it.

  13. If you like Mangas and Anime you should definitely visit Tokyo. They have a whole district full of Manga related stuff and also toys from comics etc. It’s super interesting to walk around there. You will love it 🙂
