Synopsis:
Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for audiences T+.Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth – the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin’s veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. Can Rin fight demons and keep his infernal bloodline a secret? It won’t be easy, especially when drawing his father’s sword releases the demonic power within him!

My Thoughts:

Yet again, another great manga. Though this one has a bit too much gore in some parts (Not to mention the Satan in this manga is a creep). To sum it up, I absolutely love Mephisto, he is a complete clown! Though it seems that he is also a son of Satan. Which there are apparently many of.

Rin is a great protagonist, since he is still young (like someone I know) and still has many paths to choose. If I were to rate this manga I would give it a 9/10 simply because it is awesome, but some points are lacking. Such as the supporting details, and more competition among the characters, but that will probably appear in later issues. Still I encourage you, who has read this review to give this manga book a try.
