updated their review of Blue Exorcist
Score 8/10

Ao No Exorcist, on the surface a fairly predictable supernatural anime.  Delinquent teenager boy discovers he is the son of Satan, decides to become an exorcist after an untimely tragedy caused by his demon father.  The majority of this anime so far deals with the boy's school life...
