I’m so excited! Blue Exorcist is back after 5 and 1/2 years with a second season!
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the first season, OVA and the movie. It sure doesn’t feel like it was that long ago, but time flies by before you know it. We just watched the first episode of Season 2 on Crunchyroll. To not spoil it too much it starts right off with the Exorcist’s trying to stop someone who stole something that’s, of course, very dangerous and very hidden in True Cross Academy. They take a trip to Kyoto hence the name of the season: Kyoto Saga. Right away they dive right into some of Yukio’s “demons” of the past (no pun intended). Some of the emotional strife’s he’s had since he was little, dealing with his brother Rin. As we were watching we were totally thinking how we needed a re-cap since it’s been so long since we watched this show. We couldn’t remember what was going on to cause some of the tension within the group of students Rin was a part of. Be patient! Because they finally do give a pretty nice re-cap that really helps remind us of the previous story. I wouldn’t mind re-watching the last few episodes of the previous season so I think I will still do that. 🙂
So to finish this up, if you haven’t seen Blue Exorcist at all I do recommend it! If you have then I highly recommend this episode. This episode was not slow at all. They jumped right into the action and right into some of the emotions issues of the main characters. I definitely give it a thumbs up. I hope the momentum keeps going like this. Also, I don’t know if anyone else cares about the opening and ending themes of anime, but I love them and judge them as well. I really like this Season Season ending theme! The animation looks great and it’s a little dramatic and isn’t too revealing of future events. It just makes you curious for what’s to come. That’s how it should be!
