Ao no Exorcist

Rin and Yukio
 I have been looking to find some new anime/manga to follow and I decided to give this series a try. A short description is that Rin Okumura is the the bastard son of satan, this series takes place in a world were demons exist. The demons dwell on another plane of existence called Gehenna (a.k.a Hell) and are constantly trying to come into the mortal plane. Priest or Exorcist as they are called in this series work to repel the forces of Satan, by use of swords, gun, and scriptures from different religions (mostly Christianity). At the beginning of the series he lives with his "father" Shiro Fujimoto, and his twin brother Yukio in a missionary that Shiro runs.
A series of events unfolds and causes Rin's powers awaken and the story goes from there.

Since I don't want to spoil to much ill sum it up like this. If you like demons, and the eternal struggle between good and evil, and don't mind a slightly religion spin on it you will most likely enjoy it.

If any of our readers have suggestions are decent series I could pick up that would be awesome.


  1. thought it was kinda nice too...
    One Piece or Hajime no ippo are a much better pick tho, you should really check them out

  2. I was never really a fan of one piece, but I will definitely check out Hajime no ippo, thanks for the suggestion. I really need some new anime to watch lol
