you wont get bored
26 December 2012 | by kishoresrk-mhn-355-580172See all my reviews

This is my first review and this is the third anime i watched after death note and code geass. In comparison to them i know this is not up to their level but i enjoyed it a lot and i was so shocked to see that no one wrote a review on it yet. i never got bored watching this soap, every one of the 25 episodes are interesting unlike death note and code geass where due the impact of the previous episodes i got bored in middle episodes which are a little bit slow but they again caught the momentum and ended beautifully although i dint like the ending of code geass or i would say its inconclusive. But with blue exorcist its not like that it got better and better by each episode.

one of the main reason i liked it is that it made me nostalgic for harry potter. there are a lot of things in this soap which are identical to harry potter like the school rin attends which is so identical to Hogwarts and classes and teachers are also so identical to hogwarts. It teaches about friendship like potter and teaches that group effort is always superior to solo effort.

It has got all elements which one may look for in a good anime such as action, fantasy, comedy, drama and a little bit romance. usually i don't like comedy in anime as they some times over react to normal situations to induce comedy and it kills the scene some times but comedy in this soap is appropriate and perfectly placed. They tried avoiding comedy in serious scenes which is good for that reason every scene played well. I stopped watching fairy tale and full metal brotherhood due to such type of comedy. i was surprised to see that they stopped this show after only 1 season. I hope they reprise this how as soon as possible, i am waiting for the sequel so eagerly.

last word: you will never regret watching this show because i didn't
