Preview: Ao no ExorcistPosted: April 29, 2011
Going through previews slower than I expected. Mainly because I have sleep and work to do, and because I’ve finally started watching Death Note.
Not entirely sure what took me so long to start watching, because it kicks ass, but oh well. Anyways, on to Ao no Exorcist.
Ao no Exorcist is about a guy named Rin, who’s the son of a priest/exorcist named Father Fujimoto. Despite this, he tends to get into fights often, and he messes up a lot at things he tries to do.
Now that his powers are released, tons of demons are after him to either take him back to hell, or kill him.
Honestly, it’d pretty much your generic shounen setup and characters. Give rough, yet good-willed teenage main character immense power, etc., etc.
However, just because it’s shounen doesn’t automatically mean it’s bad. It has an interesting premise, and it has been executed pretty well so far. Though I did roll my eyes at the, “While we’re under siege, you should know that this sword will unlock your demonic powers. I don’t want you to ever use or unsheathe it. You can have it, though.” part, at least it wasn’t dragged on for more episodes.
Anyways, if you find the premise interesting, give the show a shot. And if you already like shounen shows, you’re pretty much guaranteed to love this.
P.S. Father Fujimoto is a badass.
