The June issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine is revealing on May 2 that the 20th compiled book volume of Kazue Katō's Blue Exorcist manga will bundle an anime DVD on October 4. The anime will adapt the title story from the Ao no Exorcist: Spy Game short story collection novel (seen right), which shipped on March 3. The story centers on Renzo Shima. Aya Yajima wrote the collection.
Shueisha is also publishing a Kazue Katō Art Collection IROIRO book on May 2.
The Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga (Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujō Ō-hen) sequel television anime adapted the "Kyoto Impure King Arc" that started in the fifth volume of Kazue Katō's original Blue Exorcist manga. The anime premiered in January. Aniplex of America licensed the series, and streamed the anime on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Anime Strike.
Katō launched the manga in Jump SQ. in 2009. The manga's 19th compiled book volume shipped on April 4, and also bundled an anime DVD. Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and published the 16th volume in December.
