Following up on preliminary news this past November, Aniplex of America has announced that the Blue Exorcist TV series will be making its U.S. network television debut on Adult Swim’s Toonami on February 22nd.
About Blue Exorcist:
Assiah: the realm of humans. Gehenna: the realm of demons. Normally, these two dimensions would never intersect, but having possessed all material substances, the demons are now intruding on the material world. But among the human race, there are those who can exorcise such demons - the Exorcists.
Based on the manga by Kazue Kato (published on Jump Square by Shueisha), Blue Exorcist successfully depicts a hero, Rin Okumura, an energetic, yet naïve young man who aims to become the ultimate exorcist. The manga has been made into animation in the hands of Japan’s acclaimed staff including director Tensai Okamura (Wolf’s Rain, Darker Than Black) and Animation Studio A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Oreimo 2).
