Blue Exorcist Season 2 Series Review


Overview: A continuation of Blue Exorcist (reviewed here), the story picks up with pretty much everyone being scared of Rin and Yukio still stressing about everything. Someone stole the eye of the Impure King so now we're all going to Kyoto because clearly a world threat should be handled by students and a small branch … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Season 2 Series Review

Blue Exorcist Episode 37


Review: I can't help but think this entire season was just filler. Other than Rin learning to control his flames (which took way too long) and the other students finally getting over Rin being the son of Satan (though for some reason they don't apply that same reasoning to Yukio) we've watched this whole season … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 37

Blue Exorcist Episode 36


Review: The fragmented nature of this show continued this week with Yukio and Todo kind of finishing their fight (though Todo seems pretty unkillable at this point so not really sure if they are really done or not) and then Rin finally did something with his sword. This show is always at its best when … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 36

Blue Exorcist Episode 35


Review: Blue Exorcist is a good example of why shows should just try to tell their story and wrap it up. Whether there is a bigger world or other stories that could be explored is neither here nor there because the whole point of stories is to entertain. Season 2 of Blue Exorcist has failed … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 35

Blue Exorcist Episode 34


Review: You would think now that they've all got their assignments and the battle is on that the excessive group chats would have ended, but Blue Exorcist is very attached to lengthy dialogue at this point. Each pair or group have plenty of time for heart to heart conversations usually right before they get surprised … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 34

Blue Exorcist Season 1 Series Review


Okay it occurred to me now that the second season of this show has started that I hadn't review season 1. Overview: Rin Okumura and his twin brother Yukio have been raised by Shiro Fujimoto, an eminent priest, so it comes as a shock when Rin discovers their biological father is actually Satan. - From … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Season 1 Series Review

Blue Exorcist Episode 33


Review: After week's of slow pacing and lots of sitting around talking, all of the main groups are now running around the mountains in an effort to contain the impure king (who's eyes are apparently parts of the heart that got cut in two - did they not think through whether they were eyes or … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 33

Blue Exorcist Episode 32


Review: I've had a lot of complaints about this second season so far and this episode isn't totally immune from the criticisms that have so far plagued this series. Everyone still needs to have a group chat before doing anything. Yukio has returned to the story but his input so far has been pretty unspectacular. … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 32

Blue Exorist Episode 30


Review: While I can appreciate a story that takes its time getting to a point, that's kind of only if I'm finding the set up and opening moves interesting, and Blue Exorcist season 2 is suffering from a severe lack of interesting developments. After barely getting any story so far and wading through a lot … Continue reading Blue Exorist Episode 30

Blue Exorcist Episode 29


Review: After three episodes of mostly teen angst, we finally get back to the whole someone stealing the eye thing and of course it's the girl who got told one thing one time and decides it is an absolute regardless of evidence of lack of it. It's amazing how easy it is to convince yourself … Continue reading Blue Exorcist Episode 29
