Ao no Exorcist (青の祓魔師 Ao no Futsumashi ?), also known as Blue Exorcist, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Kazue Kato. The manga has been serialized in Jump Square magazine by Shueisha since April 2009, with individual chapters collected into two tankōbon volumes as of November 4, 2009.[1] The one-shot of the manga was first featured in the September 2008 issue of Jump Square and was titled Miyama Ying House Case (深山鶯邸事件 ?).[2] As of January 4, 2010, 10 chapters have been released in Japan.[3]



The world of Ao no Exorcist consists of two dimensions joined as one, like a mirror. The first is the world in which the humans live, Assiah. The other is the world of demons, Gehenna. Ordinarily, travel between the two, and indeed any kind of contact between the two, is impossible. However the demons can pass over into this world by possessing anything that exists within it. Satan is the god of demons, but there's one thing that he doesn't have and that's a container in the human world that is powerful enough to hold him! For that purpose, he created Okumura Rin, his son from a human woman, but will his son agree to his plans, or will he become something else...? After killing Rin's guardian Father Fujimoto in an attempt to bring Rin back to the Demon world, it led to Rin's journey on becoming an Exorcist in order to defeat Satan.



Main characters

Okumura Rin (奥村 燐 Okumura Rin ?)
The protagonist of the story, Rin is the son of Satan born from a human woman and is the inheritor of Satan's powers. After Satan killed his guardian Fujimoto, Rin decided to become an Exorcist in order to take revenge upon Satan.
Okumura Yukio (奥村 雪男 Okumura Yukio ?)
Rin's younger twin brother. Due to his weak body at birth, all of Satan's powers were passed onto Rin. After seeing tiny demons surrounding his brother at a young age, Yukio secretly became an Exorcist in order to protect Rin through the help of Fujimoto. While both Yukio and Rin are in their first year at True Cross Academy, Yukio is already an Instructor at the Exorcist cram school who teaches Anti-Demon Pharmacology to Rin's class. It is stated that Yukio had already acquired the title "Meister" in both the Dragoon and Doctor class when ordinarily getting the title in one class would make you a fully qualified Exorcist.
Suguro Ryuji (勝呂 竜士 Suguro Ryuji ?)
Suguro Ryuji (nicknamed "Bon") is Rin's rival and the prodigy in the class. He was the child of the Cursed Temple which was destroyed by Satan 16 years ago. Bon takes everything seriously and is trying his hardest in order to become an Exorcist powerful enough so he could one day defeat Satan and rebuild his Temple. Currently Bon is trying to acquire the title of Meister in both Aria and Dragoon.

Minor Characters

Fujimoto Shirou (藤本 Fujimoto Shirou ?)
Father Fujimoto was Rin and Yukio's guardian and was also considered to be one of the most powerful Exorcists in the world. He was thought to be the only man in the world that was able to sustain possession by Satan himself and thus Satan was constantly after his body. Fujimoto was able to fought off Satan's attempts at possessing his body through sheer willpower. However after receiving a mental shock from what Rin had said, Satan was finally able to take over his body.
Mephisto Pheles (メフィスト・フェレス Mephisto Pheles ?)
Pheles is the Chairman of True Cross Academy and also an Exorcist. After Fujimoto's death Pheles was ordered to kill Rin, however he accepted Rin's proposal in becoming an Exorcist and entered him into True Cross Academy.
