TIME OF THE SEASON Winter 2017 Edition: BLUE EXORCIST Kyoto Arc

HEY!! It’s that sequel from a show I watched on Neon Alley 4-5 years ago and then on Toonami 2-3 years ago. And this is going to be the first time I actually watch it first in sub.

Yeah, this is going to be weird…again.

Plot Synopsis: Assiah, the realm of humans, and Gehenna, the realm of demons. Normally, these two dimensions would never intersect, but having possessed all material substances, the demons are now intruding on the material world. But among the human race, there are those who can exorcise such demons—the exorcists. Rin Okumura kept the fact that he was Satan’s offspring a secret from everyone and decided to become an exorcist. He began his training at True Cross Academy but following the incidents involving Amaimon’s raid, his lineage became apparent. Fearing his true nature and the blue flames marking his connection to Gehenna, Rin’s classmates all distanced themselves from him. Meanwhile, the academy was on high alert when they realized that the “Left Eye of the Impure King” had been stolen! What lies ahead for Rin and his classmates?

First Thoughts: OK, so now I understand this is following Rin’s reveal as a demon and everyone does not want to talk to him and they’re very pissed at him. In other words, that whole Yukio turning into a butterfly demon thing……yeah, didn’t happen….at least that’s what I get from this. Aside from the whole ‘Rin’s a demon’ reveal thing, not much happened in this episode except a standard exorcist case rescuing a boy from this demon…..oh, and yes, I noticed that boy’s name is Satoru……yet it wasn’t that Satoru.

I’m not going to say this was the best or anything like that, but I was fully entertained by it. I’m really looking forward to see how this will be different from the other series.



I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid Exorcist……and if that shit happened to me, I probably hide a bit or let them find me.
