Yukito is sucker for advancement.

Anyone else who thought that the part with the boar demon was a Princess Mononoke reference?

It was a Youkai reference, just like the boar in Mononoke was also youkai reference, but yeah, for a moment we got the Mononoke feeling, it was inevitable :D

Bon is smart as always. He's more than a support character if you ask me.

Yukio you just went FULL RETARD

NEVER go full retard.

Yukio is naive :/
New Pope was already fishy.

I'm still kinda pissed off that Mephisto left Rin. He wouldn't have gotten hurt if Mephisto had opened Rin's jail cell D;<

Yukio you are one hell of an idiot...

I feel so sorry for the boar king- the protector of the forest. I got Princess Monomoke feels then.

Mephisto's drawings are #1.

Oh! They rushed the story to end the show!

What I don't like:
All those short fights!
Built up was almost none existence. (could be saved if they taken out the fillers...)
The plot was predictable since they start the final arc.

What I like:
Cool guns! ED!

I really wanna like Yukio but his actions so far are really making me question it. Really curious about his blue flames and how they'll cone into play.

I love Ao no Exorcist, but I agree, it did seem really rushed in places. Maybe I was spoilt by DBZ growing up, but I really wanted longer fights! ; o ;

The boar reminded me of Princess Mononoke too. Really sad.

And Kuro!; o ; Yukio, what was the matter with youuu?

Holy crap shit just got real.

I honestly did not expect Rin to get sacrificed and be put through such pain like that, I expected something, but not this. Wew.

I think i've actually enjoyed this series more these last few episodes. A continuous stream of crap is hitting the fan (....ew), and it's getting interesting.

As a manga reader I got curious and watched the adaptation even though many people told me not to. It wasn't that bad, but this is by far one of the worst anime episode I've watched that is a manga adaptation.. they completely butchered the plot and the characters so much that I was just cringing and looking at the screen in awe.

Ok, now they have totally crossed the borders :/

So, unfortunately this series is not popular enough to get a FMA:B style remake.

The non-canon way this anime is heading to is too much for me.
This better be getting a justified remake just like Hellsing or FMA.
Because this course of action is just boring -,-

RIP in peace Rin, Yukio is the new Blue Exorcist now.

Seriously from a traditional standpoint Rin is the fuckup, but Yukio keeps doing stupid shit to "protect" Rin and treat his inferiority complex that he's the one who is actually fucking up.

Also him being all "I HAVE TO KILL UR DEMON CAT RIN ALL DEMONS MUST DIE" like Rin isn't a demon too... I think both of them forget that.

Rather than turn me, I was a little disappointed this episode. The narrative is quite fast, and rambling in the central part, and is therefore a bit indigestible to assimilate mentally. The final is perhaps up to my expectations, but under these circumstances, I am disappointed. Yuki's brother, Rin, is just a rip off, I thought it was clever as a character, instead it seems the village idiot.

Nice, Yukio. I get why people are not happy with this filler. Inferiorety complex doesn't make you do shit like killing Rin's familiar.

The paladin is still fucking useless LOL

I hated this episode. Felt like I couldn't watch this seriously anymore.

I'll finish this season cause I can't keep my curiosity at bay, this original ark is pretty terrible.

Episode 22 - [???]

Dang. of course, ----WAIT. WHAT. YUKIO HAS JOINED THE VATICAN OR WHAT. WAIT. I'm not getting something. Was he possessed by Grandpa? THINGS ARE GOING DOWN.

Typical cat waking up in the morning routine. Yukio didn't come home because he's JOINED FORCES WITH GRANDPA. I wonder if that'll make Rin their enemy? iono. Dude. What's the puppet guy still doing there? I feel like he's just tagging along. HAHA. Watch him be some sort of powerful kid. I mean, he was one of the ones that finished that forest task with Kamiki so early.

Dang. Yukio is the new Paladdin. WTF. Something's up with him. He's the Director of the Japan Branch. omg. wait. what is happening. So does that mean that their purpose is get rid of all of the demons. Awww. Rin seems to be giving Yukio his support but Yukio is obviously hidding something.

The crew is getting some weapons now. HAHAHA. The girls could've been having to hold the Grimoire, a huge ass book. Now they are going on missions to save Assaiah {?} against the demons. Bon keeps noticing that the mark on their weapons are lighting up on specific times. MAN. They've been going into overtime destorying all of these demons.

Okay. We get to see how Grandpa had convinced Yukio to join their forces. Grandpa told him that they can make Rin become human again if they get rid of Gehenna. Grandpa even knows about Yukio's "special problem".

Duudeee. Yukio just went on a killing spree with the god of the forest.

HAHAHA. Mephisto's art. OMG. That's so cute. Looks like actual kid drawings. OMG. Angel has got to be a bad guy. Mephisto turned into a dog and has the green hamster on top of his head. Is that Amaimon? He escapes and leaves Rin there. Now Grandpa is here to meet Rin. Shiemi, Tsubaki---OMGGGG. Are they planning on burning Rin at the stake like his mother? All of those weapons that they had been using to kill off the demons are together and is draining them towards Rin. OH, NO. WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN.

Well, he can't die because there's a second season. HAHA. BUT OMG. Yukio has brought back to his senses and he's now learning what Grandpa is actually doing.

Wtf is going on? I mean almost everything changed in this episode. Yukio really is the new paladin and the new responsible person for the japan department lol. I knew from the beginning that something is wrong with these weapons they used against the demons. Collecting all these demon blood for destroying Gehenna and making Rin to a normal human, if. The scene in the forest was also pretty brutal. Yukio killed the protector of the forest and was also about to kill blacky...

The funny part in episode was for sure Mephistos art of drawing, that reminded me so much on Rukia from Bleach xD

Rins and Yukios grandfather is completely out of his mind. The execution of Rin, god that was so brutal. Rin suffered so much and all of that just to open the Gehenna gate. I really wonder what happened there. Yukios demon power got stronger that's for sure but damn how in the hell is he looking now? He's like a real demon with the blue flames Rin normally has. And all the other exorcists are dead?

I don't understand why and I want to know what happened -.-

Also what is Mephisto up to? So much questions, I hope they will get answered.

i think this was probably one of the better episode though the ending confused me is Yukio possessed Satan or has Yukio finally awaken his demon powers. all i know is i'm getting super hyped for what's going to happen in the next episode!

I start to like the opening and ending theme.

So basically, Ernst Egin wants to wage war with Gehenna by opening the gate using demon's blood and Rin as a sacrifice. I don't know if this man is so ambitious or just so stupid. It's clearly impossible. He said so himself, Assiah and Gehenna is like two sides of the same mirror. If one side is destroyed, the other side will be destroyed too.

Shiemi and Izumo cannot see the demon hunt as anything but a mere massacre. Not all demon need to be killed, only those who attack or possess humans. Even some demon is beneficial to humans, like Kuro, Ukobach, Ni, and even those protecting the forest as the lord of the forest that was killed by Yukio.

I wonder how things will turn out next.

I did not like Yukio from the very first episode on and as seen in this episode for good reason. Though I don't quite get what happened in the end, did Yukio defeat all those people?
