Blue Exorcist Episode 27



For a show that likes its action the first two episodes of this season have been pretty slow. Episode 27 sees us meeting family members of Rin’s classmates who live in Kyoto and various other characters in Kyoto who I’m sure will actually become important at some point (or cannon fodder so either way). We do get some more back story on Bon but mostly learn that he’s just angry at his father. Rin on the other hand is still dealing with the fact that most of his classmates are avoiding him which does lead to a fairly entertaining scene that was probably fuelled by the underage consumption of alcohol (accidental, of course). That said, Kuro gets the award for most valuable player in this episode because he’s just plain adorable. So, a little bit slow but we’re still setting up all the pieces and the final few minutes of the episode kind of indicate that the plot is getting ready to move.

  1. Is it just me did Kuro get smaller? Or has he always fit on Rin’s shoulder…
    In my defense, it’s been a while since I watched s1.

          1. My memory has failed me!!
            For the umpteenth time so I’m not even surprised. Either way, he’s adorable.

    1. I remember him sitting on Rin’s shoulder at some point in season 1 but given he can become huge, I don’t really remember how big he’s supposed to be.

    1. That was pretty funny. At first I wondered why he seemed like he was getting drunk on juice but then it kind of clicked that at no point had they actually looked at the bag of drinks when they took it.
