Blue Exorcist, also known as Ao no Exorcist in Japanese, is a fascinating dark fantasy anime television series based on the same-named manga series. It adapts the story of Rin Okumura, a half-human, half-demon boy who is seeking to uncover his true identity and eventually learn how to become an exorcist. Rin is a cute kid, with a very feminine appearance.
He looks like the son of an angel and a devil, but he’s also not as pure-hearted as one might think. He’s quite violent, even if he doesn’t see it at first glance. He turns his back to his father and they are separate before they have the chance to know more about each other. Rin becomes an exorcist for his own interest in becoming an exorcist and does so without asking for permission from his family.
What is Blue Exorcist?
Blue Exorcist is an anime that is based on a manga by Kazue Kato. The manga series began in May 2005, and since then 16 volumes have been print. The manga was adapte into a successful anime series. To date, there are 24 episodes in this show. It is produce by Bones, and the director for the first season is Jun Fukuyama and for the second season, it is Kenichi Kawamura who takes over as the director. The original singer of “Kaze no Uta” (The Song of Wind) sang in this show too!
What do you think about Blue Exorcist?
This show is about three teenagers who are all friends. In the first season, they are just jokes, but in season two, you learn more about them and how they change as time passes by. The story is mainly told from Rin’s point of view with flashbacks and sometimes he tells us what happen to Sakura before his eyes and all that. The story stays on a very good tone and the dialogues can sometimes be quite funny.
The characters are all very appealing, but they are also intriguing at times! For example, you learn that this is a series full of perversion, which is perfect for young people. The premise of the story is fascinating and embedded with many elements which make it stand out from other anime series. The setting in the show is not explore fully yet and I hope they will do it in season three too.
Is there a Blue Exorcist Season 3?
Yes! As it is rumoure, the 3rd season of Blue Exorcist has been produce. The anime series will be produce in 2013 and there are many more episodes to be seen. In Japan, it is produce by Bones with an excellent production and after its success in the UK, the studio is also producing Brave Story: New Traveler. Earlier this year, they also release a remake of Slayers by ADV Films which contains new scenes not present in the original series that air back in 1996, but there were others not found anywhere else.
The Blue Exorcist anime series garnered great success with a total of 9.83 million dollars in sales just in America. In Japan, the series sold over 6.7 million dollars which is a rather big figure for an anime series. The story is excellent and is mostly done well by the producers, although it does have some minor problem such as pacing.
The first season of Blue Exorcist has 12 episodes that aired in April 2011. The second season has also been broadcaste with 16 episodes from January to March 2012 and this brought the total episode number to 28. Even though many fans believe that there will be a third season of Blue Exorcist, but then again, rumours were never actualize until this day.
Why did they stop Blue Exorcist?
From what I have read, the production of this show received a lot of negative criticism on how they made it. There was also a rumour that the director didn’t want to work on Blue Exorcist Season 3 any longer. When it comes to CGI fights, they were not very successful in them and after the first season, some fans did not like the new art style which confused many people.
The story of Blue Exorcist is a little bit complicate since it has different elements in it and if you don’t pay much attention to it, then things might get lost for you. Fans have come up with some theories as well on how this show will continue and there are ways fans could make sure that these theories are right.
Blue Exorcist is a must-see show, but season two is not as good as the first season. However, it is one of those series that has a lot of potential and if they do a third season, then I’m sure many fans would be please! If you are looking for an anime series with some violence, comedy and some sort of action then this show might be right for you.
