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 his son agree to his plans? Or will he become something an exorcist?

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At first, I was fine with the series. Once you get past the first few chapters, things really get rolling –Rin begins to learn about exorcism and meets his classmates, and there's Shiemi and Yukio. I like the overall relationship between Yukio and Rin – twin brothers who protect each other. The younger twin wants to protect his older brother who has inherited Satan’s power, and the older twin always protected the younger one ever since they were kids. Things were pretty cool with Shura too; a physically strong female character. I like that there is a reason for her to constantly go shirtless, but there seems to be a bit of a boob thing going on… The male characters did comment on her breast size and there was one comment of comparison between two female characters’ breasts… We’ve also got a weak girl who wants to gain confidence and be useful to others, and another girl who does have strength but has a sour attitude. I’d like to see more female characters to have a balance.
The character development disappoints me. An important aspect of this story is supposed to be friendship. But the worst is that Rin’s “friends” aren’t mature enough to accept him after they learn of his heritage. (What’s interesting is that Yukio is also technically Satan’s son, but he does not get any hate whatsoever.) I understand that lots of people fear Satan and have had their family members killed by him, but Rin is not responsible for any of that –there is an instant impulse to lump Rin and Satan together, which I find utterly irrational and unfair for the poor guy. All of a sudden, those “friends” fear and hate Rin even though he would never burst out and smack them. I thought friends were supposed to trust each other, but Kato doesn’t seem to believe so.
The story then babbles on to show different character arcs instead of resolving internal conflicts first. Kato likes to tell, not show. Kato would verbally spit out information instead of doing so subtly, or simply through actions. If the author slows down and resolves these conflicts first, there may be greater character and plot development. The religious chants feel pointless because they do not add to the story overall. The fighting scenes are not impressive –the author lacks creativity.
I’m disappointed in the potential this story failed to show. I would have given this story another chance if the characters were actually likable.

The story SHOULD be simple. Son of Satan learns of his secret heritage and decides to become an exorcist. Cue progressive build-up of power, allies and epic battle after epic battle... right?

It seems like that most of the time, but it never really happens. Instead, the story repeatedly changes focus to one of the side characters without warning and dedicates entire story arcs towards resolving their own secret heritages. Worse, the story repeatedly falls back onto the same exact 'secret legacy' trope.

Ancestor defeated a major demon in the past? Major demon comes back to life and has to be defeated. Again.
Ancestor failed to properly pass down the family secrets? Family secrets come back to bite the current generation in the ass.
Ancestor failed to maintain the family duties? Current generation has to suffer for their failures.

Well, i havnt started reading this yet, but I actually have a question for it. The tag says it has romance. But is it one of those hinted ones, or the ones not involving the main character. But a romance that involves main character which is not just up in the air, but developed? I want to know as I have been searching for a good action manga with romance in it (not the echhi kind)

my gosh! Just like rmvr, I am going to buy this series as soon as I can. Why did I avoid this series for so long?!? It's nothing like I thought it was going to be about! It's awesome! And that's coming from a girl that typically reads shoujo. Not that this is anything like a shoujo. Read it, you'll know what I'm talking about.

As the title says, there is something about this manga that I really like. I don't know what it is. I've only read four volumes, as someone borrowed the others from the library. I do like that the mangaka doesn't seem to forget about as much as others. For example, in most stories injuries and such are often forgotten. Especially light injuries. They are wounded and then on the next page it's gone. I like that this author remembers such things.
And I really like pointed ears. The sharp incisors really accent the look. And the tail.
I'm not far enough to give a real opinion about the story. I like it so far. The few religious bits are a tad annoying, but easily ignorable (is that a word?).

A bit like a cross between Naruto, Devil May Cry and Harry Potter. Boisterous teenager finds out he's actually the son of Satan and has demonic powers that could overcome him, so after he pledges to beat Satan he is semi-secretly whisked away to a private school all about training exorcists.

The main theme of the story is mistrust whether this boy can actually control his power and not cause an unholy (no pun intended) massacre and unleash Satan's powers (blue flames) upon the earth, but control them instead in order to defeat demons. This causes rifts between him and his brother, a sensible and established exorcist, and his classmates, some of whom have lost families to Satan's flames.

While the premise is great, there is something generally lacklustre and sub-par about this manga to me, though it could very much be that it will pan out to justify this in the later arcs. Otherwise it's a bit like Harry Potter in the school, but with exorcist subjects; a bit like Naruto in it's "demon child" aspect, their powers and the different exorcist clans with different powers/different ninja clans with different powers; and a bit of DMC in the demon-hunting, guns and the entire 'demon dad' thing, though not quite. It may be that I need another read-through to refresh myself of it, but I also found the villains to be rather poor, of anime-filler quality, and the fights can be similar.

I mean, it's alright, and you could do worse, but it's decent at best, tired shounen archetypes - exorcist edition - at worst.

I been a fan for this for a very long time and I still continue to love it even now. I agree with mostly everything the hinaru77 had to say about this series, confusing or not. I love this plot, admire and adore the Charcters, Rin, Yukio, Sheimi, Izumo, Fujimoto... Shura, etc... Right now, there's really no one I caould possibly hate, not even satan himself, espically in the anime, even though some of it was filler. But it was set in the right place. I hope to see to more from ths awesome artwork, and more deeper plotline as the series continues to be ongoing. I just hope that I won't be 30 years old or 10 years later until to the series, end. Cause I can't wait that long!

I have to say that this reminds me a litle bit of Naruto. The boy who is lonely even though he has fujimoto and his brother Yukio, other people call him a monster. Very simialr to Naruto adn his situation at first. And the fact the he is the son of Satan like Naruto who is the kyuubi, has to bear with it whle change into something very important as time goes goes. I watch the anime first before reading the manga and I just fell in love with both of them as soon as I started reading and watching this seeries. The plot is sort of smiliar adn common like Luffy tying to be King of the pirates (One piece) Naruto who wants to become Hokage, and now we have Rin who wants the defeat Satan, and becoming the one of the strongest exorcist in history. So as I say, very much the same, but different ways of telling it. Not trying to say it's a bad thing or everything. Just pointing of the obivous if your used to seeing stories like.

The characters, like in Naruto, Fullmetal Alchimest, One piece, etc. have very loveable, and funny character is this series, which I admire. Which at first I found a dislike towards one of the characters which was Izumo at first, for her attuide just sort of made me dislike, but in Naruto, Kazue Kato, starts to show more background of Izumo as much as the other characters and makes me start to like them just a litle bit more as the series progesses. I adore Rin, and Shiemi the most, which they all each have their own problem but then try to change it little by little as well as the rest of the characters, like Rin tries to learn, how to appect himself, as who is his as him baes the burden of being born as the son of satan who is what many people fear. Shiemi tries to be more confident as well, as she tries to catch up to her close friends (and what you could probably be know as family) Yukio and Rin. Yukio who has a rebeless, think to quick, and fight by himself, big brother, who to stress and worry because he doesn't seem to carry satan's powers, and with his brother getting into to trouble, he tries to be the one to protect him (For that he feels that fujimoto train him to be an exorcist for.) He feels that his brother might be threat due to his flame. And so on with other characters in this series. But the series does have his heartouching moments, where if the friends could be seen as a big family which I find very powerful. To praise to Kazue!

The artwork: Beautiful and excellent! I can't really find any way to put it. Gorgous as you might say. I even gets me inspired to draw to create new characters here and there. I hope she does an artbook very soon and if you she say she already did then I hope it hits the US. Cause I want a copy so I can look at the colors, and the sketches and notes about each drawing and what they author says about each one of them.

To me, there are some confusion adn some parts that are pretty fast to get through so easily without and converstion bewteen the characters about that problem like so and so Espically with Yukio and Rin as brothers and the problems they have with one another, but maybe the author will reveal that in the later future. But as many people Know, not everyone can write a prefect story. There's always going have a person that reads a story and find something wrong or something that they didn't like and that's why there really can't be a "prefect story". Maybe "almost prefect" but not prefecr. Maybe some people will, maybe some people won't, but I say "hey! Cut the author a break! She only human after all. Just like you and me.

To me, I will give this wonderful, funny, heartwarmthing, action, series, Called Blue Exorcist a 10. I will highly recommend to anyone, espcailly if your in the teens catgory. Blue Exorcist FTW! and Kazue keep up the good work!

It has a good idea, good characters, and good development both in plot and in relationships. There's a nice theme of family, comradeship, and choosing your associations. I enjoy it, and I see everyone seems to be enjoying it, for the most part.

But Ao no Exorcist needs to learn to pace itself - problems come and go with resolutions that come and go. Big reveals of identity and trust just fly on by one after the other. Moderation should be practiced, if just to give problems a little more...weight. I don't feel invested; everything happens at once. Slow it down, give us a breather, or at least develop your problems and resolve them over periods of time and with a LITTLE SUBTLETY PLEASE. And for God's sake, can the solution this time NOT consist of Rin yelling his feelings angrily but meaning well at the top of his lungs?

I love Ao No Exorcist. I'm always eager to see what's next, but it's like Ao no Exorcist is even more eager than I am to show off its good stuff, and so it throws it at you one after another. No, that is not how you story!

I hope it slows down a bit, and I hope everyone gives it a try. It has some gorgeous art as a plus!

I've read it a few times and I'm definitely going to buy it whenever I can find it in my bookstore. This is a fantastic manga, and none of the characters are annoying and/or purposeless. I really recommend this to anyone.
