The official website of A-1 Pictures' Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist) television anime series began streaming the anime's fifth television commercial on Sunday. The anime adapts Kazue Katō's Blue Exorcist manga about Rin Okumura (Nobuhiko Okamoto), a boy raised by a famous exorcist named Father Fujimoto (Keiji Fujiwara). Rin discovers he is the son of Satan, and he joins the True Cross Academy to become an exorcist. Tensai Okamura (Darker than BLACK, Wolf's Rain, Kikaider) is directing off scripts supervised by Ryota Yamaguchi (Cutey Honey Flash, Digimon: Data Squad, Sailor Moon Sailor Stars). The anime will premiere in Japan on April 10.
