and when you then "compare" this to the best anime (one piece) out there, well..
so rushed..


You mean where things take tons of episodes to get accomplished and has over 300 episodes to watch? 8D

Annnnnnnnnnnyways, this gets a 10/10 for me because even though it's not faithful to the Manga, it was still damn good (TO ME) and I loved every Sunday sitting down and watching the newest episode. Sometimes cliched? Yes. But, I can get over that because the first half makes up for it like no tomorrow. Second half? Not as good of course. But, again, I'm just going to overlook that and enjoy it for what it is.

So, yep - Manga and Movie here we go!

Well, lol, at least the ending is a lot better than Soul Eater's. And, Tiger&Bunny just might make it's score go down. But, we'll see when I finish it

I give this episode a 6/10.

So much deus ex machina. Blackie flying... wth? The brothers flying...LOLWUT? Etc. Etc. Blue Flames of Satan =/= Phoenix.

The only good part was them visiting their moms grave/their birth place.

9/10 from me, love the BGM, OP/ED choices, love Kuro and love Rin :3 to hell with Arthur and Shiemi at least Arthur was quite useful this epi lulz
and finally best part of this anime original ending is......HAMSTERIMON :D especially when he was standing rofl
anyways it was a pretty predictable episode (except for that phoenix like bird thing lol) the fact that they focused more on the Okumura twins as opposed to others were a +, though I wanted more Mephisto screentime =3=
oh well that was pretty awesome, Movie here i come :3

"He's so stupid he'd forget to die even if he got killed." Lol'd. Bon is the best.
Overall a fine show, 6/10. Started really well and had it's moments but there's a lot a cliche/bs in it.

Wow.... I'm really disappointed... Really, really disappointed.

It started out as one of the most promising anime this year. The introduction was interesting enough to draw me in. Everything to animation, characters and that awesome soundtrack. Even though the plot was filled with clichés, it was presented in a very entertaining way. Rin, who I thought was going to be just like all the other shounen lead, quickly became one of my favorite characters.
It wasn't until episode 15 when I started to notice something was a little bit off...

Everything I loved about this series just flew out o' the window. The pacing went way too fast, the animation (which became sloppier with every episode), the characters lost every single quality that made me like them and the story turned into some bizarre mess. Well, at least the voice acting and music didn't change to the worse.

The thing that tipped me off the most was when everyone found out that Rin was Satan's son. What do they do? Act as nothing... And that's when I decided to check out the manga since the discussion board was being flooded with complaints about it.
Despite the arc that follows was pretty weak in comparison to the earlier arcs in the series, at least the characters had realistic development. I mean, come on! Take Shiemi for an example. I kind of liked her in the beginning, but as soon as I saw her to the "Love/friendship conquers all-hug" back in episode 16 I literally face-palmed. She's not even a little concerned about her love interest being a complete demon, she just ignores it. The same goes for everyone else in the cast.

That's when people also started to realize that so much more was going to change.
I thought they were going to do end AnE in a fitting way to continue the plot from the manga in a second season. But no, they decided to go in a total different way. I'm not saying that a original route is anything bad (it usually turns out bad though), the route they took happened to be a bad one. As I said, everything felt rushed, the characters stopped being interesting and the plot made no sense whatsoever.

These last few episodes were the worst. Yukio annoyed me to hell with his sudden change of personality, that grandfather who was just there to get that stupid plot going and how they destroyed my image of Satan. I imagined him to be a sadistic bastard with no intention of his evil deeds (he's the devil for crying out loud, he doesn't even need an intention).

Well, because of the the first half of the series I'm going to give this 7/10 - and that's being generous in my opinion. I'm curious to see how the movie will turn out, but I'm not having high hopes if they're just going to continue where they ended it.

i have a question for the people that utterly hated the series...why were you even watching it if you hated it that much?

if you were hoping for it to improve, i guess that's one thing...and most likely the reason. But still, it's as if some of you act as if you're being forced to watch the worst show in the world.

Hmm, not so bad for and ongoing manga anime ending...but it could have been better if they would wait for more manga chapters :/...

The only good parts were when Rin pinched Yukio's nose and when Bon strangled Rin xD...

Could someone remind me why Satan should be a good guy? Because I never saw him actually doing something good, so why the producers want us to believe that he's just misunderstood?
And what's the whole purpose of Mephisto, if he wouldn't have been in the anime, would it have changed something?
What was that horrible deus ex machina under the form under the form of a giant bird?
Why the Gehenna Gate looks like a flying ufo saucer out of a B sci-fi movie?
Why Rin wants Satan back to the human world, even if he made a killing spree?
Why joining the human and demon world together would be a good idea?
Why this anime likes so much ripping off other ideas, like the modern styled Dullalhan from Durarara and the boars from Princess Mononoke?

So many questions without answer... The only upside is that this anime will be retconned soon by Ao no Exorcist: Brotherhood.

4/10

I was hoping that it would improve over time, and it did for a while, but then it only got worse and worse.
I finish almost every show I watch so I can voice a valid opinion about it. You cant really have a legit opinion of a show you haven't finished watching yet.
And I just don't like dropping shows, I want to see them through till the bitter end. Too bad AoEx was way too fucking bitter, and I had to force myself to watch it.

I have no doubt that plenty of 12 year olds in Japan loved the ending. But for the rest of us, the second half of the series was quite disappointing because it was so unoriginal. Non-manga stories don't have to be predictable, but the writers didn't really try here. Oh well.

I really loved the beginning. (Before they decided to turn this series into a boys version of vampire night except with demons and exorcists) Even the past few episodes were so bad. But this episode was just lolwhutno.
7/10 had it's ups and downs.
Despite what people say the anime original stuff wasn't that bad.
