The ExWire of True Cross Academy are beset with shock and fear in the aftermath of discovering that one of their own classmates, Rin Okumura, is the son of Satan. But for the moment, they have more pressing concerns than that of Rin's parentage: the left eye of the Impure King, a powerful demon, has been stolen from the academy's Deep Keep. After an attempt is made to steal the right eye in Kyoto as well, Rin and the other ExWires are sent to investigate the mystery behind the Impure King and the ultimate goal of the thief.

While this mission has them cooperating for the time being, Rin has never felt more distant from his fellow exorcists. In his attempt to reconcile with them, he undergoes specialized training to control his dark power. However, when the right eye is stolen not long after their arrival, the unthinkable threat of a traitor amongst them leaves them in need of all the power they can get.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


The adaptation starts at volume 5 and ends at volume 9, chapter 34 of the manga.

...and if we're clear on this, then you get here: the kyoto-hen arc.

To start off, I would first like to tell you that this has spoilers, probably from the anime, and the manga.

Now that's settled, let's start.

First, I get why people hate this anime so much: the characters. And I swear, half the cast did get on my nerves. Probably thought that they weren't even vital to the story. So what changed my mind?

If you don't have enough patience, and if you don't read or aren't planning to ...

Mixed Feelings
This season, I believe, is for people who prefer things to be straightforward.

Story - 7/10
Some parts of the story were continued from Season 1. The first few episodes basically summarize what happened in Season 1. The plot was coherent throughout. The story was pretty simple and it didn't really please me. It was a little tedious. Many things were predictable. I do feel like it could've been done better. The good thing about this season is that they get right to the point without dragging it out. There was some lightheartedness sprinkled throughout. The mystery surrounding the demon didn't really hold my interest. I didn't ...

Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga

In advance, I have to note that the season does not follow the end of season 1. Episodes 18-25 were not canon and accordingly, they do not exist in season 2.
Don't get confused by this.
