Good day again from Anime Recommendations, today i will review the relatively new anime Ao No Exorcist, also called Blue Exorcist, this is one of the currently ongoing anime that i have the pleasure of watching (episode 22 now), adapted from its respective 7 volume manga it was created into a 24 episode anime series. The Plot revolves around a young boy called Rin Okumura and his twin brother Yukio Okumura. Both sons of the most powerful demon Satan who were raised by Father Shiro Fujimoto, the most powerful exorcist. After shiro is killed in front of Rin’s eyes by Satan himself, Rin decides to become an exorcist like his guardian and defeat Satan. Upon enrollment into True Cross Academy he takes part in a special exorcist course where he aims to become a Paladin, the title given to the strongest exorcist. He is capable of accessing the powers he inherited from his father Satan from drawing his sword Kurikara whose sheath acts as a portal to the demon world. Unfortunately the quantity of flames released from the sword drastically increases and risk of his mind being consumed by rage and power and as a result loosing it forever.
This anime is on the higher end of the Demon/Action Genre spectrum and as a result i may be a bit biased in my review (since this genre is my favorite see here). The plot gets a 7.5/10 its pretty good although the progression can be a bit slow at times. The animation is simplybeautiful so i gave it a 9/10. And the characters… 7/10 although they were all great in portraying their roles, there was nothing exceptional about them (just my opinion, no flaming please). Overall id give it a score of 7.8/10, definitely the best demon/action anime of the year. Take some time, give it a watch, is worth it :).
