After a fight with his foster father Shirou Fujimoto, Rin Okumura's life is transformed overnight when Rin is revealed to be the son of the demon lord Satan, king of the demonic realm of Gehenna. Soon after, his foster father becomes possessed and dies at the hands of Satan, leaving Rin and his twin brother Yukio alone in the world. Seeking revenge for Fujimoto's death, Rin attends True Cross Academy with Yukio in order to become an exorcist and join the Knights of the True Cross.

Rin's new path, however, is filled with many difficulties. While new classes and dealing with his peers are already troublesome enough, he is also forced to conceal his newfound demonic powers and parentage. In addition, plenty of evildoers want to use him for their own ends. One misstep could lead to disaster, as not everyone at True Cross Academy is exactly who they seem to be...

Preliminary (130/? eps)
As a volume 1 reader I've been with this series ever since I was in middle school, and seeing me grow up with these characters is extremely special to me. Blue Exorcist is one of those shonen manga series that blew up in the beginning but tapered off later on. Now the diehard fans are the only ones really keeping a discussion of this manga. Blue Exorcist is the story of 15 year old teenager named Rin Okumura who finds out he is the son of satan! After his adopted father kills himself because of Satan, he is appointed by the head of True Cross ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (16/? eps)
I’ve heard enough about “Blue Exorcist” for a while now to get me interested in reading it. I was so excited when I saw the volumes at my library and picked up the first four right away. After finishing the first four volumes, I’m sad to say that I am thoroughly disappointed. Here is why:
