    say what you want about mebut don't diss my brother.
  • Lois Bujold
    I tried this one in part to sample my public library's lending system for e-manga, which turns out to be brilliant. The art looks excellent on my Android tablet, very clear and readable. And being able to swap out volumes near-instantly at one in the morning without leaving my chair is dangerous addictive.Storyline on this one was something of the same-old-same-old -- why are all these male protagonists always 15? I suspect an industry-wide edito...

    Another good start for a shounen manga! I had seen the first episode of the anime already so I knew what to expect; although I was kind of surprised the beginning in the manga wasn't as developed as it was in the anime, you get a much better understanding of why Rin fights with the boys and starts the whole mess in the anime than in here.Definitely a lot crammed into this first volume, but thanks to reading Bakuman I'm wondering if that's because...

    When i first watched the anime a few years back i was like "Rin is my baby".Now that i am reading the manga a few years later than that i am like "Rin is my baby".Honestly, he is one of the most likeable characters. Everybody loves Rin
  • Annie
    Interesting story, but unfortunately not really what I was hoping for.

    ¿Para qué leer Blue exorcist?1) Tiene muy buenos gráficos y peleas con demonios.2) El sustento religioso y científico de los demonios, es perfecto, aprendes de estos seres sombríos acompañados de llamas.3) Tiene momentos cómicos y muy divertidos, que te alegran el día.4) Trata el tema del núcleo familiar y las relaciones de protección.5) El protagonista aunque algo testarudo, es bastante creíble

    I had heard of Blue exorcist for a while before picking it up for myself from my local W.H.Smith.I only picked it up because I thought it would give me something to read that afternoon, but boy, am I glad I bought it. I am hooked!I've never been up to date with a Manga series; I purchased the other 3 that week, and have asked for the 5th for Christmas, which was released last week.I think the art style of Blue exorcist is lovely. I love how the c...
  • Veronica Morfi
    So good to be reading about Rin and the rest of the gang again. I've missed them :)Now on to the next one.
  • Elizabeth
    This was great! I watched the anime a few years back and I'm pleased to say that the humor and characters that made the anime one of my favorites was translated directly from the manga. Since I'm not sure if they'll be making any more seasons of the anime (cries), I'll have to start reading this regularly.
  • Mizuki
    I read the first volume, it's decent but there's nothing new in the story. It doesn't keep me interested enough to read the next volume.
  • Jack ~luxemburgers~
    I really enjoyed this volume since I honestly felt like this was a nice start to an interesting series. It was a good introduction and it was enough to make me curious to see what would happen next. It's far from perfect, that's true. But it was definitely a something new for me and I really appreciated that since I was looking for something a bit different. I think what I liked most about this beginning volume was that it introduced the story in...

    What should I saw about Blue Exorcist Vol 1?First of all,the word 'addicting' is a small one for such a Manga.This is nit actually gonna be a proper review,mostly 10 reasons to try this manga:•It has awesome characters.Only the fact that Rin is my anime crush is enough:D•It has awesome pictures and an awesome plot•It's BETTER than the anime of course!•It's action packed•It is full of plot twists•It's funny•It's got amazing fantasy e...
  • Lucile
    This is probably one of my fave manga, how couldn't I think about it ?! I've discovered this beauty at the beginning of the year, and it is just awesome and refreshing ! However it is really slow and the books come really late in France (and I don't like to read scans on Internet).
  • Kate (Reading Through Infinity)
    3.5 starsI watched the first season of the anime a while ago and absolutely loved the action and drama, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the the manga is just as dynamic. The art style is very similar in both mediums and the characters are just as vivid and spirited. I think the anime does a better job of explaining the world, the demons, and Rin's powers, but for a first volume this really grabs your attention, and keeps you captivated. I'v...
  • Sara Williams
    Book #13Surprisingly very good! Blue Exorcist follows two siblings and their life changes when Rin (our main character) finds out he is a demon. But not just any demon. Satan's son.So he enters in a new school to learn how to be an exorcist and combat all evil, and his brother does as well.The art is pretty simple but very beautiful. This first volume is self explanatory and I truly enjoyed it and felt eager to pick up the rest. I have watched th...

    gah, I knew I should have put more than 1 volume on hold at the library! Loving this so far!

    خیلی خوب بود!!!اول انیمه رو دیدم و حالا اومدم سراغ مانگا. شخصیت های رین و یکیو فوق العاده دوست داشتنی ان. تقریبا من همه رو توی این داستان دوست داشتم، حتی ساتان :دی رین از ان شخصیت هاییه که با وجود تمام حماقت ها و اشتباهاتش آدم ازش خوشش میاد.پلات هم خیلی ...

    Blue Exorcist #1Fifteen year old Rin Okumura has been living at a monastery with his fraternal twin brother, Yukio. During an argument with his guardian, Father Fujimoto, Rin comes to discover that he is a demon, but not just any demon. He is in fact the Antichrist, the spawn of Satan! Yukio, who is the weaker of the twins, failed to absorb the demonic power of their father but became aware that demons existed at a very young age, unlike his brot...

    Well that was fun! After this first volume, I'm really liking the overall concept of Blue Exorcist and am interested to see where it goes. I mean, bastard children of Satan produce some of my favourite characters. Exhibit A: Raven, bastard daughter of super demon Trigon from the Teen Titans. I would love to see how this story develops. In volume one were given a lot of establishing details at breakneck speed. I'll admit that it was all a little t...
  • Amethyst
    4.5/5 stars(This isn't really a part o the review. Well, I guess it's more of a pre-review.) I remember loving the anime for this, and wanting to know what happens next for these characters when I reached the last episode. However, I wasn't much of a manga reader back then, so I didn't pick up the manga right away. Lately, I've been reading more manga and I've decided to finally read the manga for this series. ^.^ I've heard that it is a lot bett...

    5/5 estrellas.TREMENDO VIAJE ME PEGUÉ CON ESTE MANGA.Había mirado el anime hace muchísimo tiempo y recordaba poco y nada, pero sí sabía que me había encantado. Me compré los primeros dos tomos hace un par de años y no leí el primero hasta ahora, y la verdad es que no sé qué se supone que estuve esperando porque me fascinó.Lo principal, siempre amé a Rin. Además, el diseño de personajes es de lo más hermoso y la guía que le han ag...

    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 t...
  • Miss Ryoko
    Actual rating: 3.5I am REALLY excited about this series because the story seems like it could turn out really bad ass. The only crappy thing - it's an ongoing series....which means I have to wait....and we all know how much I hate waiting >_
  • Kristen
    I tried reading this a few months ago and for some reason, I couldn't get into it for some reason. I picked it up again because it is a group read for Shounen Manga Book Club. I liked it this time. I like Rin a lot. He has a great character design. In fact, the art in general is pretty nice. Everything looks very clean and bold. Every once in awhile there's a page that has really nice details. There's a very nice spread of the academy: it's spraw...
  • Anna Kļaviņa
    Very loosely based on Christian faith. Rin Okumura (15) is the illegitimate son of the Satan. I've no idea why it is even mentioned that Rin is born out of wedlock. If only because the Antichrist is supposed to be a bastard because he denies the Father...? Ok, I have no idea. Rin has a twin brother Yukio who isn't son of the Satan. So it makes them a half-brothers and reminds me of Hercules and his twin brother Iphicles. Very confusing. I like th...

    This was so awesome! I really like the characters, especially Rin and Yukio. I found the plot very interesting. I've heard that the anime isn't as good as the mangas, so I think I'll just stick to the books. The art style very pleasing on the eyes. :)I will definitely be continuing this series.

    Al ser la primera vez que leo un manga, tal vez me he quedado un poco perdida al leer, puesto que yo solía leer cómics cuando era pequeña y leerlos de derecha a izquierda me confundió un poco. Sin embargo, tan solo han sido las primeras páginas y luego me he ido acostumbrando a hacerlo. La historia me ha encantado y, además, es super divertida *-*. Tengo muchas ganas de leer el segundo tomo c:
