Little clarification: The movie is a side story. Its not a reboot ,a recap or a continue to the story and you can't watch it before watching the series. Recommended for: New to Anime, Blue Exorcist fan(duh?) Not recommended for: If you haven't watched the series. The good: Fun to watch, beautiful scenery, some really good artwork and colorful visuals, funny new characters. The Bad: Cliche characters, very predictable moments, at 40% of the movie you can predict what will the ending be like, poor fighting scenes, (excluding the first 15 minutes) boring soundtrack directing.
Warning this Review may contain spoilers- So this is my review for the Blue Exorcist Movie, as you may of guessed this isn't really part of the main story and if anything it is just a side story but that doesn't effect how good this movie is. The story follows Rin, Yukio and Shiemi at the beginning and as you may of guessed Rin messed up on a misson resulting him finding a boy, a demon boy. After that he is told by Mephisto to look after this demon for a few days while he was in suspension. From that all kinds of mysterious things happened and so the story was made. To start off this movie is probably one of the bests I have seen even though it is only a side story, this movie is detailed and intriguing as you watch each scene. The animation is just about perfect, I didn't see many problems and the designs and scenery are spot on, if your are looking for a movie with amazing animation...here you go ^_^ The music was as beautiful and captivating as normal, there isn't must to say other than it matches the main series quite well. The voice actors were well chosen, I watched this movie in english dubbed which isn't what I normally would but I found that Blue Exorcist has one of the best english dubs in my opinion. The characters are the same as the main series even though they aren't developed much throughout the movie (other than the main characters). But from their personalities to their design, they were a amazing. (Also the Bon trio mad em elaugh quite a bit in this movie, which was different). Overall if you have watched the Blue Exorcist series (and liked it) then check out this movie and I can assure you that you won't be disappointed. Well thats all for now, thank you for reading. ~AngelBeatsYui~
