Demons and exorcists have long dominated the supernatural genre, which is partly why anime has become so popular all over the world. When it comes to exorcist and demon anime, Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist) is hard to beat. The idea of Blue Exorcist, like many other successful supernatural anime series, has a sinister character. On the other hand, the anime offers an engaging and action packed story that stays close to the core theme.
Despite the fact that Blue Exorcist is a dark movie, it is not as complex or deep as its stunning graphics and musical score would you believe. “The son of Satan becomes an exorcist to defeat his father” is an overused and unoriginal theme and premise. However, Blue Exorcist manages to keep things interesting without getting boring.
Despite its roots in Shonen, Blue Exorcist incorporates a lot of new ideas. Satan, demonic possession and a lot of exorcisms under the guise of combat are all part of the plot.
However, despite its predictability, it still manages to easily entertain viewers. With distinct personalities and a good balance of humor and seriousness, this show is a must.

Fillers: Should you watch it or ignore it?
There’s nothing wrong with filler episodes, but the first season finale nullifies all the character development made during season one. We recommend skipping the filler due to the disappointing outcome, even though the rest of the anime is excellent.
As a result, it is not canon as it takes place between episodes 18 and 19 of season one. They can be accessed at any time as standalone programs (ideally after the first season).
This is Blue Exorcists’ favorite watch arrangement. For more similar content stay tuned to Spoilerfox.
