Ao no Exorcist is Aniplex’s newest anime and it seems to be making it into the popularity polls pretty high up.
The animation is great! Seamless and NOT shiny! I almost thought it was a Square Enix anime! (I am Squeenix biased lol).
Its got a very basic story-line as is expected of a shounen title. Boy with strange powers is rejected by general public and seeks strength to prove self and/or protect/avenge loved ones(friendship, struggle, victory). However the actual development of Rin (the main character) and as to WHY he becomes an Exorcist is a real twist that couldn’t have (or could have depending on how versed you are in the workings of shounen anime) been guessed at! Wish I could say more but that would entail a SPOILER ALERT that I’d rather not incur! SO CHECK IT OUT!! Its worth it!!
Its funny and entertaining and is proving to become even more popular in the future as the story fully unfolds. Check it out at Crunchyroll and support the creators by joining the CR community! Its cheap AND legal!
but then again since when do most otaku concern themselves with getting anime legally????
OP: Core Pride by Uverworld
ED: Take Off by 2PM (believe it or not!)
Love the ending! especially the tiny part where the characters do 2PM’s dance moves in the MV! So cute!!
