Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth – the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin’s veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. Can Rin fight demons and keep his infernal bloodline a secret? It won't be easy, especially when drawing his father’s sword releases the demonic power within him!

So one day when I was on my nook and needed something to read, I decided to look to see if bn had some manga for nook. So I looked it up and was excited to see tha they did. Although I was disappointed that they did not have Fairy Tail (recommeneded) I saw that they had ao no exorcist (Blue Exorcist) and immediately bought the first four volumes. I love this series so much! It is one of the beat manga I have ever read. If you buy it, you will not be disappointed by it! :D (sorry for any spelling errors)

I've always been a fan of manga and am in fact president of the manga club at my school and out of all the manga I have read this is quickly becoming my new favorite! It is full of action and some slight back story, just enough to explain, which is perfect in my mind. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes manga or anyone who like action/fantasy stories!

I don't have a lot of time or money to dedicate to manga like i used to, but this one is definitely worth it. The art is amazing, the story is great, and the characters have depth. Definitely one of the best popular manga out there.

Promising start to a series I'll read more from. The art work is really, really good. One of the characters reminded me of Xerxes Break from Pandora Hearts. Anyway recommend this first volume.

I just watched the anime and it rocks but I like the manga version so far and I can relate to one of the characters. And this is something good to read in the rain at home.

I¿ve been a big fan of this series since its initial serialization in Jump Square magazine a few years back, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out that it was being released here ¿ and that Viz was translating it. So I dug in happily, and was quite pleased to find that Viz got it right, and it isn¿t even apart of their SigIkki line, so no special effort was needed. The English adaptation was more or less seamless ¿ which was to be expected as this series doesn¿t really have many cultural notes to explain (it¿s based more on Western religion/mythology than Eastern religion/mythology), so that probably took a lot of weight from the translators¿ shoulders. If you¿re looking for a new series to jump into (no pun intended), and you like stories about demons, this one is most definitely for you. Good job, Viz! Keep it up. And don¿t let me down!(crossposted to goodreads, shelfari,

So i bought this because i watched the anime several months back and absolutely loved it! and i wanted to help support the series since its still ongoing. Its an amazing story, it really draws you in and leaves you wanting more. If your looking for a shounen story that is cooler than the average ones then you should give this a try. You wont regret it!

A manga about family, destiny, and personal choices, Blue Exorcist has already set up a strong story with a distinct cast of characters in the first volume. The world, though only first touched on, is vast and intricate. Rin is your typical shonen main character, but his world gives him a difficult role to navigate -- being the biological son of Satan, but the raised son of an exorcist priest. If you enjoy paranormal drama with some humor, as well as beautiful art with detailed scenery, please pick this up!
