Fantastic first ep. I didnt really notice anything major that they skipped from the manga. And they hit the ground running while still providing some context which I like.

I think it loses something without the talk/contest between Yukio and Shura.


Hmmm.....thats fair I, it was fine for me, but yea I get that. But...its too bad its one cour, probably could have fit that in if it was two, who knows.

Probably could have been two cour.
They even have the short beach arc to add a few episodes if necessary.

Oh it's going to be worse people are saying they stay that way. Stay assholes to Rin for the majority of this arc. So that near perfect charater devolpment where they quicky over come their bigoty realize Rin is still Rin was all filler, and here a long drawn out hate fest to replace it with


People are either over exaggerating or lying.
Some characters take longer than others, but it doesn't take the whole arc for them to mend things with Rin.


That's not what I've been told now that i've found out the good charater devolopment was a lie. That they stay like this for the majority of the arc. That we get to have Mopey Rin because of it for most of the arc instead of Happy Good Rin we love. That besides "eyebrows" most of them begrugeingly work with rin till near the end of the arc when they get over it. I Hope thats a lie because I HATE THAT SHIT. I know most people hate that shit as well. The main reason i loved this show is it didn't go that way after it was out we had 2-3 episode dealing with it then they were over it. Are you saying that's the case Maybe 2-3 more episode of this then The groups has there Feel back to them?

Honestly I'm not too happy about everyone being a jerk either. Let's hope that they do actually all become friends again because they made a pretty good team, at least, in my opinion. When I watched the first episode of Kyoto Saga and it got to the part when Rin had met up with everyone again and they just rejected him, it made me feel sad, actually. So yea, let's hope that the episodes get a bit happier, maybe?

Depends on the pacing and the character. At least one will probably be fine with Rin in the next two episodes and I don't think more than one would last to episode six without reconciling in some way (barring really wonky pacing).
Mild spoilers for more detail


Edit: and I actually like that it takes different characters different lengths of time to deal with it. Everyone of the kids has their own distinct personality and history, hich is reflected in how they deal with learning about Rin.

Phew almost thought that I was the only one. Okay so yes I am also quite saddened by the fact that we lose that character development which I really liked about those few episodes of Blue Ex S1. I never even knew that those were filler until today. I was completely content with the ending, but I mean if they want to go the route that the Manga is following and we get to see new content I'm game, but like some of you posted .. I've already had enough of the bs against Rin.

Izumo best girl right now. Shiemi you were alright/nice in season one, lets see how you do here.

I have a question regarding the revelation of Yukio also being a demon. Is that.. still valid?

No, I don't think so Nikuma. I'm like you in that I don't read manga and am unaware of what is and isn't cannon, but one of the flashbacks went out of their way to note Yukio DOESN'T have the power. As much as the dropped content annoys me, I have to admit it's rather clever how they went about hinting what's cannon and what isn't, without taking away from the flow of the episode.

So, I marathoned all Blue Exorcist S1, extras, and movie between yesterday and today, and now I find out that half of what I watched wasn't canon. Like wtf? all that friendship built with Konekomaru and the others for nothing.
And also, what the fuck happened to Shiemi. Why she didn't react as she did in S1 when she found out about Rin being Satan's son. Her behavior is totally different.

Why? Why? Why?

So after binge watching season 1 and then watching ep. 1 of season 2, I was pretty lost. After reading this forum I have deduced that:

-The second half of season one was not canon
-Season 2 is a side arc
-Season 2 is actually the true end for season one
-Having not read the manga I must be a fool for actually enjoying the second half of season one.

I was just really confused because in season one, I believe episode 18, they had the same exact conversation in the class hall when Rin was practicing his flames with the candles as they did on the train. (Like i said I binged watched season one. Literally for the past 2 days lol) I just thought it was kind of a let down when that happened. But if what I am reading from you guys is right then that must mean that the direction this is going is like that second part of season one isnt going to happen. Which means I guess thats why they had the same conversation?

Please correct me if I am wrong or if I am missing any information. Very new to this series.

Thanks.

I'm excited to see where this goes. I rewatched BE and finished about 3 weeks ago. The ended of it was obviously rushed and not canon. This has me excited to see the plot really unfold and finish properly. It starts from before the anime went into filler.
