“Blue Exorcist” Coming to Toonami Next Year

There is a new addition coming to Toonami in March 2014 called “Blue Exorcist.” Because of its worldwide fame, Aniplex of America released the title on home video in North America earlier this year. According to Aniplex, the show, “produced by the highly-acclaimed studio A-1 Pictures, (“Sword Art Online, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Oreimo 2”) the “Blue Exorcist” TV Series has gained popularity among its fans for its unique story line and characters.”

With an English localization by Viz Media with many popular voice actors such as Bryce Papenbrook (as Rin Okumura), Johnny Yong Bosch (as Yukio Okumura), and Christine Marie Cabanos (as Shiemi Moriyama). “Blue Exorcist”  has 25 episodes including 1 OVA (DVD/Blu-ray only).

The story follows Rin Okumura as he trains to become an exorcist to defeat his father who happens to be Satan. All the while Rin has the same demonic blue flames that his father has, causing Rin to have an inner conflict with himself and everyone around him who sees him as a monster.

According to Aniplex of America,”The Blue Exorcist TV Series is based on Kazue Kato’s hit manga published in Jump Square (by SHUEISHA) and it saw a multi-stream simulcast on websites such as Hulu, Crunchyroll (subtitled version), and as well as on Neon Alley (English dub version). In response to its world wide popularity, the series was also adapted into a film and theatrically released across North America this past August.”
