Blue Exorcist Manga Listed by Viz's Distributor

posted on by Jacob Browning
Volume 1 of Kazue Katō's Ao no Exorcist supernatural manga to ship next April

The North American book distributor Simon & Schuster lists the first volume of Kazue Katō's Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist) manga for release by Viz Media next April. Simon & Schuster's listings do not necessarily indicate definite release plans or dates.

The manga 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.

Katō launched the manga in Shueisha's Jump Square magazine in April of 2009, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped in July.
