“I’m not your weapon; Demon King or saviour! I’m Rin Okumura! And when I’m done, I’m going to be the best Exorcist you ever laid your eyes on!”
Rin’s favourite animal is an owl!
His likes to cook, sleep, eat and space out in his spare time
And speaking of cooking, Rin is actually really good at it! His repertoire includes things from Japanese foods to western dishes (though his favourite food is sukiyaki). The reason why he learnt to cook was that because he has oversensitive senses, which means that he can easily detect when something in a dish isn’t right
Rin sleeps for 11 hours a day in the manga, and 12 hours in the anime
The Blue Exorcist mangaka, Kazue Kato, has said before that originally the twins’ names were switched around – meaning that Rin was going to be called Yukio
Rin is 173cm tall and weighs 62kg
In his original design, Rin had a tattoo that looked like a burnt-like scar on his face. He was also going to have red flames instead of blue
He can see through any lie, no matter how big or small. This is a trait that’s unique to his character in the series
Rin’s favorite manga genres are comedy, drama and action. He also likes romance novels
“It’s certainly good to be smart, but I think it’s better that there are all kinds of people in the world” – Rin
Transformation, time-space manipulation, summoning, flaming pentagram and telekinesis… He can do it all! The King of Time is the second strongest demon king, and powerful enough to block any higher ranking demon from entering the academy!
Arthur A. Angel
Arthur (firstly, what a name… such lovely use of alliteration) is a Paladin – so obviously he’s strong. He also has enhanced speed, enhanced strength and spectral awareness
Because to his heritage, Rin has the Flames of Satan, the ability of pyrokinesis and is able to take on a demon form. Rin’s other skills then include high speed regeneration, spectral awareness, enhanced strength and telepathy
There’s no doubt that Shura is powerful. She’s an excellent sword wielder, a tamer (with her familiar she is able to create both barriers and track other people/objects), has some skill in sealing and is also an Aria
Satan, as the main antagonist, is one powerful character. He has superhuman strength, can summon the Gehenna Gate, superhuman endurance, superhuman speed, fire manipulation and an ability known as Infernal Wind
I mean, Yukio’s the youngest to have ever passed the qualification test to become an Exorcist so we can assume that he’s pretty talented. Yukio is a Doctor and a Dragoon, is a tamer, and (in the anime) is able to take on his demonic form
The King of Light is the strongest demon king and while we may not know the full extent of his powers, Mephisto has admitted that even if Lucifer was in his weakened state that he (Mephisto) would still be not be able to defeat Lucifer
Fujimoto was a Paladin of the True Cross Order, which is the highest title any Exorcist can reach. He is also a skilled Dragoon, Tamer, Aria and Doctor. He also demonstrated extreme willpower when he was able to reclaim his body from Satan for a bit

“You can badmouth me as much as you want, but don’t make fun of my brother!” – Rin
Blue Exorcist (created by Kazue Katō) tells the story of Rin Okumura, who along with his twin brother Yukio, was raised by Father Fujimoto – an Exorcist. But then Rin learns that he and Yukio are the sons of Satan, and that he has inherited Satan’s powers… So when Satan kills Fujimoto, Rin enrols in True Cross Academy. This is where he will learn to become an Exorcist in order to defeat his father!
The art is awesome! It’s so well-drawn!
The plot is interesting – it’s filled with action, different characters and is very well-paced! Not to mention that the series does actually have a bit of an ‘intro’ at the start! This allows you to understand what the situation is in the story and gain some insight into the world the characters live in and the lives they lead
Although it’s obviously a shonen series and fulfils some of the more typical plot points and character tropes of the genre, this series is great because the characters that have been created by Katō are pretty funny, likeable and interesting
