Blue Exorcist is another of my random picks. I heard the name a few times before but never took the time to check it out. One day I saw it on Crunchy and just added it to my queue.
Blue Exorcist, where can I start without killing the plot… This show follows the plot to the end and explains it all too. Most end of the world type shows, you’re left wondering, what about this and what about that and that’s because the new thing is 12-13 episode animes. Blue Exorcist is 25 episodes plus an OVA and a movie too.
The story revolves around 2 twins Rin and Yukino who are brought up by a priest. All 3 of them have some pretty big secrets they have to keep from the rest of the world. The biggest secret of all is that Rin is the son of satan. How can a priest and a son who is practicing to be an exorcist keep this secret from everyone they know? How can the twin brothers survive knowing that one is the son of Satan?
The show is full of plot twists, subplots, additional characters and more. You do have to pay attention to keep up with the show due to all the references to past events and history which revolve around the main plot. They do a good job of not leaving you questioning why, even if you find out episodes later.
This is a show that I don’t have any issue recommending to anyone. To me it’s a 5 but to you it might only be a 4.9 but that’s still good right? Check it out. While you’re at it, check out the movie too.
