Average Rating

Humans and demons are two sides of the same coin, as are Assiah and Gehenna, their respective worlds. The only way to travel between the realms is by the means of possession, like in ghost stories. However, Satan, the ruler of Gehenna, cannot find a suitable host to possess and therefore, remains imprisoned in his world. In a desperate attempt to conquer Assiah, he sends his son instead, intending for him to eventually grow into a vessel capable of possession by the demon king. Ao no Exorcist follows Rin Okumura who appears to be an ordinary, somewhat troublesome teenager—that is until one day he is ambushed by demons. His world turns upside down when he discovers that he is in fact the very son of Satan and that his demon father wishes for him to return so they can conquer Assiah together. Not wanting to join the king of Gehenna, Rin decides to begin training to become an exorcist so that he can fight to defend Assiah alongside his brother Yukio.

Satan son hates satan because he’s satan. Poor satan.


Nice series, once you start watching you cant stop exiting to watch pretty much through the whole series.


The second season is better, but this one was interesting regardless. Worth a watch


The first half is solid shonen action. Second half is Anime Original sloppiness that is retconned out in Season 2.


You can stop at episode 17 now that the second season is out.


Probably one of my favorite battle shounen shows.


The internal conflict makes this anime so good but his growth is priceless!!


    Demolition Man

    I am a member of the Zoldyck family, who are a family of legendary DMCAers. Since birth, I trained endlessly in the art of encoding. I eventually ran away from my family and profession out of boredom and joined the Anime Kaizoku website to pass the time.


    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
