Everyone who’s been a teenager once knows that it’s not easy to be one. Being a troubled teenager with no parents makes it more difficult. But do you know what’s the most difficult? That is being a troubled teenager who’s absent father turns out to be Satan. Crazy, right? Unfortunately, that’s Rin and Yukio Okumura’s situation. These twins are the main stars of an anime called Blue Exorcist. I know, they have some wild parentage. While this may seem like an unfortunate thing, it does come with some perk. For example, the twins have the ability to turn into demons and they both are super skilled individuals. These skills come in particularly handy since this anime is all about demons and exorcisms, you know, the biblical stuff.
Being a supernatural, action anime series, Blue Exorcist boasts a cast of powerful characters. Are you curious about them? If you already know what this anime is about, then stick around to find out. However, if you have no idea about the things in Blue Exorcist, here’s a quick rundown. As its name implies, this anime is about exorcism. Skilled people train and study to become exorcists, obtaining certain titles such as Aria, Dragoon, Doctor, Tamer, and Knight. With that said we can go back to business and talk about the best characters in this exciting anime. Is it gonna be Rin with his protagonist halo shining bright? How about his twin brother Yukio who’s got multiple titles on his belt? Well, we won’t keep the suspense long, here are the best Blue Exorcist characters. What do you think? We’d like to know what you think so leave us a comment below.
The King of Time is definitely one of the best characters in Blue Exorcist. He is a full-pledged Exorcist and the second strongest of the Eight Demon Kings. He’s so powerful that he can manipulate time and space and can even transform into a small dog. Well, a small dog is nothing scary but not everyone can do that. Anyway, this mysterious character is the current Principal of True Cross Academy.
With a powerful heritage comes a powerful character. Being Satan’s son definitely has its perks as Rin Okumura has abilities that not even his twin brother has. In fact, Rin has the ability to manipulate fire and can transform into a demon form. Awesome, right? This Exwire at True Cross Academy is studying to become a Knight Meister and defeat his demonic father.
One of the undeniable best Blue Exorcist characters, Shura Kirigakure is the best girl of the series, providing fan service to its viewers. She is an Upper-First class Exorcist having a Meister in Knight, Doctor, Aria, and Tamer. This beauty is also Rin Okimura’s mentor. Officially an Inspector from the Vatican, Shura Kirigakure works as a teacher for the Exwires in the True Cross Academy.
He’s not only as tough as he looks, but Ryuji Suguro is also one of the best Blue Exorcist characters. This teenage boy’s rough and rebellious appearance may deceive you but he’s actually a prodigy making him Rin Okumura’s number one rival. Although he is still an Exwire at True Cross Academy, Ryuji is training to become an Aria, Dragoon, and Tamer all at the same time.
Shiro Fujimoto is one of the best characters in Blue Exorcist. This is not only because he adopted the sons of satan, Rin and Yukio Okumura, but also because he’s immensely powerful. He is a priest, an exorcist, the two-hundred fifty-first Paladin of the True Cross Order having mastered the five basic meisters Aria, Doctor, Dragoon, Knight, and Tamer. Yup, the guy with a long list of titles is definitely part of the shortlist of best characters.
Yukio Okumura is the more serious twin of Rin Okumura. He is kind-hearted and excels in being an exorcist. Like come on, he’s Satan’s son. Although not as powerful as Rin, Yukio is still stronger than most. In fact, he’s the youngest person to ever pass the Exorcist qualification exam. He’s a Meister in Doctor and Dragoon, and later becomes a teacher at True Cross Academy.
It would be rude not to include Satan on the list of the best Blue Exorcist characters. After all, he’s only just the ruler of Gehenna and the father of the twins Rin and Yukio Okumura. Simply put, being the God of Gehenna, we can only assume that Satan is the strongest Demon in the story despite his powers not being fully revealed yet. What we do know about him is that he’s the guy everyone wants to defeat.
Rounding up the list of the best Blue Exorcist characters is another fan favorite, Shiemi Moriyama. This girl is not as powerful as the rest, being an Exwire still training to be a Tamer. However, her naive personality has captured the hearts of Blue Exorcist fans. She’s also incredibly loyal, patient, and hardworking, someone who you would want to be friends with. What she lacked in combat skills, she makes up with her optimistic and positive personality.
Just like any other works, Blue Exorcist has many interesting facts that fans probably don’t know. While it may not be as magical as the story itself, it’s still quite fun to know some of them. For example, did you know that Blue Exorcist was based on The Brothers Grimm? No, I’m not talking about the fairy tale book collection but rather the 2005 adventure fantasy film starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. Yes, such movie exists and it inspired Kazue Kato to make a more serious story out of it. If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s actually about two brothers who are con-artists pretending to be exorcists. Maybe it was the handsomeness of Damon and Ledger or maybe some other reasons but the appeal of two brothers being exorcists inspired Kato so much that she started drafting her story. However, the writing part actually took longer that Kato had to scrap what she wrote not once, not twice, not thrice, but seven actual times! Well, no regrets there as Blue Exorcist is now one of the best demonic anime and more importantly, one of the best Shonen Jump anime.
Probably another Blue Exorcist fact you don’t know is that Rin’s personality is based on Kato’s while Yukio’s is based on her unnamed best friend. Kazue Kato said she chose such arrangements because then writing scenes between the brothers would come naturally to her as she and her best friend often have silly arguments. And that wraps up the interesting things about Blue Exorcist that we’d like to share with you.
