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.
