Short review for this short special

This episode-sized special doesn't really bring anything new to the table and theres no more backstory info on Kuro which I was expecting given the whole episode was foucused on him. Though, the short but sweet appearences from the many charcters in the main story and the simple plot makes this special very enjoyable (in special/OVA standards).

The best part of Kuro no Iede is that it has the same amount of comedy and drama which Ao no Exorcist had until the last 4-5 episodes where it became an over-the-top overdramatic mess (just saying).

The voice acting and the OP read more

Ok, so this one off special is all about Kuro running away co'z he can't stand Rin who is just teasing him because he's unable to eat his share of food co'z it's too hot for him to eat it and so begins his misadventures to search of someone who would be his new master and have a bite to eat at the same time. Well, at least in the first few moments he's just in search for a bite, later on, in search for a new master and then going to Shiro's grave and talking to his soul and finally, you've guess read more

I loved the anime! And this feels like just another episode. Seeing as i loved the cat, the fact that he is the main character of this special made me very happy. I watched it after the anime but i think anywhere in the second half of season 1 would be good.

Ao no Exorcist: Kuro no Iede (2011)

As far as a special goes this is definitely up there in the best.

After Kuro our favorite cat demon gets slighted by Rin and Yukio for different reasons Kuro storms off in a huff to find a new owner. After meeting a few people and not getting the treatment he wants since no one can understand him apart from a select few he finds himself looking for his old owner. We have an adventure of him finding his way to Shirou who is deceased. In the end we have a nice reunion and Kuro has his own revelation read more
