Shueisha's Jump Square magazine announced the anime adaptation of Kazue Katō's Blue Exorcist supernatural manga last year. Viz Media released the first English-language volume of the manga this week. The story focuses on Rin Okumura, a boy raised by a famous exorcist named Father Fujimoto. After an argument between the two, Rin discovers he is the son of Satan. Rin decides to fight his fate by joining the True Cross Academy to become an exorcist and defeat demons. However, when he draws his father's sword, it releases a dark power within him.
