Ao no Exorcist Episode 1
Kazue Kato took inspiration from the 2005 film The Brothers Grimm, as she tried to work the angle of brothers fighting against monsters into a story. She eventually decided on making the story about demons and exorcists, thus conceiving Blue Exorcist. Due to exorcists being the main idea of the story, the manga features a lot of Biblical references. In an interview with Anime News Network, Kato said: "I should not run away from these references if I'm working in the Exorcist genre." An ending was planned by Kato but the exact length of the series has yet to be decided based on the manga's popularity in Japan.
The opening theme for the first 12 episodes is "Core Pride" by Japanese rock band Uverworld, while the opening theme from episode 13 onwards is "In My World" by Japanese rock band ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D. The ending theme for the first 12 episodes is "Take Off" by South Korean boy band 2PM, while the ending theme from episode 13 through episode 25 is "Wired Life" by Japanese singer Meisa Kuroki.
Carl Kimlinger from Anime News Network emphasized how the execution was well-performed, resulting in entertaining episodes, especially its fight scenes, which were noted to be one of the anime's strongest points, and described it as "Great action, fun characters, and an occasional tug at the heart as well; every episode without fail is a blast". Sandra Scholes of active Anime noted similarities to other series like Trinity Blood, Fullmetal Alchemist and Bleach, but wrote that the story and characters have "plenty of their own to tantalize us to watch" and wrote that it is "a truly shōnen series, but there is room for some emotional scenes".
The anime series Blue Exorcist is based on the manga series of the same title by Kazue Kato. It is directed by Tensai Okamura and produced by A-1 Pictures. The series follows a teenager named Rin Okumura who finds out he is the son of Satan and is determined to become an exorcist in order to defeat him after the death of his guardian, Father Fujimoto.
Blue Exorcist began broadcasting in Japan on the Mainichi Broadcasting System and the Tokyo Broadcasting System on April 17, 2011, the anime then ended on October 2, 2011. The series was originally scheduled to start airing on April 10, 2011, however due to the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, the series' initial broadcast was delayed by a week. The episodes are being simulcasted with English subtitles online via Hulu, Anime News Network, and Crunchyroll, starting on April 20, 2011. and Aniplex of America release Blue Exorcist on DVD in four sets, starting by releasing the first DVD on October 18, 2011.
Blue Exorcist, also known by its Japanese name Ao no Exorcist, is a new 25 episode anime based off the manga of the same name. Blue Exorcist is directed by Tensai Okamura (Evangelion, Soul Eater) and produced by A-1 Pictures.
Episode one starts with brief sequence of Vatican priests getting picked off by demons, who ignite into a fierce blue flame. It then cuts to the series' main character, Rin, finishing a street fight against a light haired boy and two of his friends. Later in the episode it is revealed that the light haired boy, a spoiled rich kid, was shooting pigeons with a crossbow before Rin intervened.
After this event we're introduced to Father Fujimoto (voiced by the great Keiji Fujiwara) an exorcist who runs an abby somewhere in Japan. The Father has raised Rin and his brother, Yukio, since they were young. Yukio, despite being the younger of the two, is more mature and heading off to study as a doctor. He patches up Rin's battle wounds and, along with other members of the abby, encourage and set Rin off to interview for a part time job.
After a brief melancholy episode Rin awakes the next day to see little black creatures floating around the city. Walking outside to investigate he's confronted by the light haired kid from the other day. Not willing to back down from a fight he leaves the abby grounds despite Fathers' demand that he stay in.
I watched the first episode before doing any research into the series. My initial thought was that it seemed like rather run of the mill shonen content. A boy, too young for what's going on, with odd unexplained strength and a dark past/destiny. Finding that it ran in Jump Square was a "ooh, okay that makes sense," moment. There was also an odd air of familiarity that seemed natural when I found out the director was key in the making of Soul Eater. I'm guessing they share a lot of the same animation staff as well.
Now this isn't necessarily a bad thing. In fact, the opposite. I remember the Soul Eater series, ignoring the story diversions, as well crafted. Blue Exorcist is certainly no different. If the first episode is indicative of the rest of the series expect strong and consistent animation. To me, where I sit right now, it just comes off as boring. Though it's going to feel right at home for a lot of people.
Despite debuting almost a decade ago, Blue Exorcist continues to keep its fans engaged with its clever plot, supernatural theme steeped in religious ideology, coupled with intense action and drama. The Season 2 premier of Blue Exorcist enthralled shonen fans, who can now stream the premier episode on popular international streaming platforms Crunchyroll and Daisuke. Interestingly, there is one more option for streaming the episodes as soon as they are broadcast in Japan, but more on that later.
The first episode shows a scene that has almost become ubiquitous with anime or any crime related series across the world. The first few minutes of Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga are spent in proving how inept bystanders are, when they are near a crime scene. The innocent civilians neither flee the scene nor do they run when they are ordered to. A mother and her overly curious child are uncomfortably close to a active crime scene that is being handled by the True Cross Order. The boy races off to witness the perpetrator up close, but ends up being snatched by the shrouded villain. As expected, the rogue is shrouded in a burst of miasma.
Series Premise: Blue Exorcist, or Ao no Exorcist, is a weekly anime television series started in April 2011, based on a continuing manga series. At the age of fifteen, Rin Okumura learns the secret of his past: he is actually the human-born son of Satan. But rather than take up the family business, he chooses to become an exorcist.
I love Blue exorcist.Why you may ask?Blue Exorcist is sad but funny at the same time.Most Anime/Manga are serious or just funnybut Blue Exorcist is both.One minute I would be crying and the next I would be laughingRin is just an innocent kid who lost the only family he knew.The characters are unquie and one of a kind.Over all a great story.
This world consists of two dimensions joined as one, like a mirror. The first is the world in which the humans live, Assiah. The other is the world of demons, Gehenna. Ordinarily, travel between the two, and indeed any kind of contact between the two, is impossible. However, the demons can pass over into this world by possessing anything that exist within it. Satan may be the king of demons, but there's one thing he doesn't have, and that's a substance in the human world which is powerful enough to contain him! For that purpose he created Rin, his son with a human woman, but will is son agree to his plans? Or will he become something else...? An exorcist? 041b061a72
