Viz Media licenses Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist)

Viz Media has just added another manga series to its “Shonen Jump Advanced” lineup: Blue Exorcist, known in Japan as Ao no Exorcist. According to Simon & Schuster, volume 1 will be released April 2011. The supernatural adventure manga series follows Rin Okumura, a boy who discovers that he is the devil’s son, and decides to fight this news by hunting demons.


Blue Exorcist is written and illustrated by Kazue Kato, and has been running in Jump Square since April 2009, and currently has five volumes. It has quickly become a fan favorite.

So much, in fact, that it is getting an anime adaption in April 2011. The anime will air on TBS, and will be animated by A-1 Pictures (Working!). The anime will be directed by Tensai Okamura (Darker Than Black, Medabots, Wolf’s Rain).

Will I read it? Maybe.
