This anime is turning out to be quite enjoyable. Not the most original, it´s not even the best of the season but it knows what it is and it gives us what we want, great fights with nice characters and an interesting setting. For Pierrot this is an excellent start compared to last season´s Divine Gate, which was a total disaster in my opinion. Let´s hope that Twin Star Exorcists keeps this level of quality for the rest of the show.

The fight scenes in this show are really wonderful.

The side characters, the lame jokes, and the redundant concepts are really bad. Also,the meth teeth.

Noragami is far superior, in my view, but this will do for now.

There is room for some Anime Original content though. There is a 2 year Time skip around chapter 20 or so. So they could easily slip in a 20 - 30 episode Arc set during those 2 years.

They already added that Familiar, so clearly they don't feel compelled to stick to the manga.

This looks like sci-fi mix with supernatural; what monsters and spirits are in it?

kind of a catch all beastie they call Kegare, although they have a wide variety of types and the exorcists have a ranking system.

Think of them as similar to the Hollows from Bleach

I've heard this is going to 50 episodes ... any truth to this?

I'd like a long series, it's been quite a while since I've watched anything that long.

According to my Hummingbird queue, it's slated for twelve episodes as of now.

I don't think this is bad, so far, but I hope they manage to do something more with the destined lovers plot than having them end up together. They've already displayed a willingness to add locations and such that are not in the Manga, maybe they'll go off course with the plot a bit too.

Ep 2

Really enjoying the sound effects and music in general. The action scenes are easily the most appealing part of the series for now, though. Benio is pretty cool, and Rokuro is powerful when he wants to be. That revelation at the end was priceless. Going to agree with those that didn't really care for the familiar. It doesn't seem likely that it'll add much to the story. The comedy, on the other hand, actually works well for me.



Now go make babies.

Eh, I don't like how powerful Rokuro is supposed to be. He's 12, hasn't trained/fought in two years, and appears to be stronger than Benio. She's been training the whole time, and clearly has better skills/techniques than him. Just look at how much more effort she puts into her fights compared to Wan Pawnch Man here. It just stinks of all the wrong parts of shounen.

Also, his PTSD comes across more like him being a whiny brat. If he can so easily jump right into a real fight, his stubborn refusal to fight while still living in that exorcist barracks just comes across as selfish. On the other hand, I can't like Benio'spersinality. Her battle style is a treat to watch, but where are they going with her? Is she a kuudere? Does she talk, does she not? What's up with the killing for candy/stealing his money?

This is probably just nitpicky whining, but I'm just not feeling it. I'll probably wait till the end of the season and try it again then.

14
they are both 14 at this point in time not 12. And actually their training times may be about the same. Rokugo started earlier than Benio did but then stopped for 2 years, while Benio started later but pushed herself non-stop.
