So I just began watching Blue Exorcist, and I think it's an incredible Anime, but Rin, the main character, I'm having a hard time dealing with his character design. I've watched about 5 episodes, and he finally got his devil form, and the character designers decided to give him a tail and pointy-elf like ears, and those details are a little bothersome for me.

Rin looked like a complete bad-ass before, but now it's a little hard for me to take his character seriously after they gave him a tail and those ridiculous ears. How do I stop being so nitpicky and learn to ignore details like this? I hate how my brain is like this when it comes to shows. I'm basically OCD about stuff and when something doesn't feel right it really bothers me.. Aside from that the show is absolutely wonderful.. I just wish they wouldn't have messed with his character design. Now I'm having a hard time watching the show because of these annoying little details. I really like the show but.. yeah. I don't know how to get over those details.

I don't think you can do anything about that if it really bothers you tbh
I mean, the whole pointy ears and tail thing are demon traits, you see the pointy ears on Mephisto and Amaimon too
not sure what else to say

I don't have any advice, but I kinda agree about the ears--they just look silly.

The tail though, is a nice touch I think, and ends up (in the having to hide it) adding a humorous touch in a good way, while also contributing a physical reminder about his demon-heritage.

Yeah...outside of "get over it" there's not really a ton we can say, is there?

Maybe if we posted a bunch of art of demons killing stuff that might cheer you up?

halfway through the series, you will realize that the anime will slowly suck. first half is incredible. second half sucks ass.

i recommend you read the manga. ^_^

You have to remind yourself thats its ok to accept it as it is.

We have to accept that we have no control over these things becuase we are not the ones getting paid to do those job nor we have control over the mangaka and their illustrator . If one doesnt like it and so be it.

Not unless you make your own version .

I got my own degree of OCDness too but I have learned to accept things but If I can do something about it then I act on it.

And yes... I also recommend you read the manga. I collect the manga myself. THe anime production changed the story past midway.

The ears and tail looking "silly" actually fits his character much better than the "bad boy" look, imo. He truly is just a likeable, goofy, simple-minded hero character, not the bad boy he was pretending to be before he started training to be an exorcist. The bad boy act was just a facade.

I thought his whole devil form was kind of ridiculous as well. Especially the tail.

Yea it sucks that you got ocd but I think its more just your personal opinion of how you wanted the character to look.

So, from reading this thread it sounds like I should get the manga since I've seen the anime. I'm curious about the different storyline.
