News Blue Exorcist Begins on DVD Monday Subtitles Only
Manga Entertainment will release the first volume of Blue Exorcist, a supernatural action series, on DVD on Monday August 20. The title character is Rin Okumura, a boy who 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. The series was directed by Tensai Okamura (Darker than Black) and animated by A-1 Pictures (Black Butler, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW).
Following Viz Media's announcement in June that it would stream Blue Exorcist with an English dub on its Neon Alley service, Manga UK was asked whether it would delay its release of Blue Exorcist to include the dub. Manga tweeted: "It'll be late 2013 before a dub release will be possible, so tide yourself over with the sub only release this summer."
