Following the announcement that “Blood-C” will be getting a movie next year, likewise, another anime identified with a katana-wielding hero will also be getting a similar theatrical treatment. “Ao no Exorcist” has undoubtedly been one of the more popular and successful shows this year, even if I have much to complain against it (pacing issues, faithfulness to the manga, art inconsistencies to name a few). Why so popular? Well, for one the story isn’t boring and the characters are likeable, while still having their little distinct quirks (Mephisto comes to mind). Anyways, the November issue of the Jump Square magazine, where the “Ao no Exorcist” manga currently runs, confirmed the news so at least we know that its real. Am I lookin forward to it? Not sure, though I can tell you I’m more excited for this one than the “Blood-C” movie. No release date has been given yet, but it’s safe to say this will be out next year.
