Preliminary
How is this manga NOT on the top ten most popular mangas! Normally with mangas, I have a few negative comments to say about it, such as the character development or the lingering plots that never seem to end, but I have nothing bad to say about Ao no Exorcist. As the summary says, it's a story about demons and exorcists. Except, in this case, the main character, Rin, is both a demon AND an exorcist. And not just any demon, he's the son of satan.

Rin has issues with his powers and keeping himself from being discovered by the other exorcists. The character development is what makes this story the most interesting! Even with only a few chapters out so far, you are wanting to read more about how the future will be for these teens that have gotten themselves into possibly more than they thought.

The art I gave a 10, but of course it's personal preference of mine. The art of this manga reminds me a lot of Soul Eater's art, and what I love about it is that you can tell what is going on. With some series, there's too much detail that it's hard to tell who's attacking or who is who! It's not that ANE's art is plain and without action, the fights are well drawn and have just enough detail to see the movements and fights clearly.

Enjoyment for me is clearly a 10, as I mentioned, it has some really awesome fights and although it's not on the genres, this manga does have some comedy in it. It's also not just pointless fighting, there's a great plot with it that keeps you on edge and waiting for the next chapter!

There isn't too much I can say about the actual story without spoiling things in this story. I'll recommended this manga to anyone and everyone! I can only hope that more people will be willing to read this story and enjoy it as much as I have!

Ao no Exorcist is easily on my top 3 favorite mangas!
10/10 without a doubt!!
