Blue Exorcist Episode 28

Review:

I shouldn’t be surprised that very little is happening at the moment in this show. Season 1 did the exact same thing. Big opening with lots of supernatural menace and action and then highschool playtime and teens figuring out who they are only occasionally broken up by action sequences.

Its a weird choice for a show that most people would call an action. The problem is, Blue Exorcist doesn’t really do characters that can pull off emotional nuances so mostly we’re left with lame jokes and obvious emotional fumbling, meanwhile we know there’s this whole conspiracy and demons and amazing things we could be watching and instead we see Shiemi get comforted by being called a weed.

Not mocking Shiemi too much. She’s my favourite character in this show but as I said the characters aren’t exactly amazing. All and all this is watchable to those who watched season 1 but hasn’t improved at all so won’t be winning any new fans.

  1. Im following the manga and I dont even know how to feel about it. Its too confusing at the moment and the character development is strange ( .__.)

  2. I actually enjoyed the first season a lot and started reading the manga(which is also great) because of it so I’m a bit disappointed at how uneventful these first episodes have been. From what I remember from the manga, I though there would’ve been more action by now as well.

    1. Yeah, there really hasn’t been a lot of action of any sort in these first few episodes. A little disappointing really given that’s the part the show does well.

    1. If you’re a big fan of shonen than you’ll probably enjoy this. It isn’t my favourite but its enjoyable enough and it is well made. My biggest issue is I’m not a big fan of the two main characters but if you start it and you like them, you’ll probably really love the show.

I'd love to know what you think.
