What Is the Plot of the Blue Exorcist?

As you know Blue exorcist is a dark fantasy cartoon series. Here we found supernatural elements.  This action anime series originated from the Manga of the same name. But the authority got the motivation to write the story of the Blue Exorcist from more like “Brothers Grimm Fairy Tate” and severe biblical themes.

This story is all about Rin Okumura and this brother named Yukio. Rin’s father is a priest and he raised Rin. Suddenly the situation changed after revealing that, Okumura brothers are the sons of Satan.

What Happened In Blue Exorcist Season 1 and 2?

In season 2, we figured out the storyline is guiding us to be a witness for its finale. There are lots of deviations we found in season 1 and season 2. In the second season especially in “Changing of the Guard ”, we got a flashback.

This flashback shows Rin Showing off his flames. It was obvious to set the tone of the story and clear the confusion. There are no discrepancies in storylines.

In the first season of Blue Exorcist, there are only 9 episodes that directly come from Manga (the original). In the final episode of Blue exorcist season 1, there are lots of facts about the story that blend one with another and resolve issues among its characters.

The 1st episode of Season 2 started where events left off the last episode of season 1. In season 2, they were taking the story forward. This season shows how Rin remains a human, not a demon. Yukio and his brother weren’t close and at the end of the season, they were close.

Release Date For Blue Exorcist Season 3?

The sad news is, there is still no official announcement from the authority of Blue Exorcist. But we’re expecting that it will happen. If you follow the releasing patterns of anime shows, then, 2022 will be the year.

Maybe this year, we’ll get some announcements from the creators. Fans just need to wait and see. We suggest fans keep an eye on their official social media handles (A-1 Pictures). Who knows, there might be some clues waiting for them.

Because of the Coved 19 pandemic, the delay for season 3 was obvious. This pandemic affected various sectors especially, the entertainment sector that is related to the release of Blue Exorcist. At this time, the creator of Blue Exorcist was busy releasing DVD and Blu-ray sets of previous seasons of this series.
