Join us as we get ready, ready for the take off (of Exorcist that is)~
Hoshi: You might have been wondering when that final review of Ao no Exorcist would come along, but as the Sundays passed and the Fall season came along with hordes of first impressions, there was still nothing! Not to fret dear reader! Hime, Fosh, and I finally came together to bring you a special podcast treat; an Ao no Exorcist series review filled with our fangirling, raging, and serious business discussion with our delightful voices and accent accompanying like a cherry on top of a sundae. From our surprisingly coherent thoughts of the final episode, to twincest musings, to our speculation of the plot to an Exorcist MOVIE (hear that? A MOVIE!), it’s all here in this thirty minute series review, brought to you after almost a month. That’s my bad~!
Mini Summary: To refresh your memory a bit, episode 25 continues the battle against Satan’s ‘evil’ plan to merge Assiah and Gehenna together as Rin and Yukio, joined by Shura and Arthur, do their best to destroy the Gehenna gate. When a combined direct attack fails, the gate begins to move across the city, striking random areas with a red beam while hordes of coal tars occupy the city. Rin and Yukio ride on top of Kuroi to get closer, but are met with another challenge of getting through the demons that guard the gate. When they accidentally fall off, Yukio tries reaching for Rin, yet grabs the kurikara. It unleashes his blue flames and as the brothers finally grab each others’ arm, they form a fiery-blue, bird shape. Together, they strike the Gehnna gate, finally destroying it (and Satan’s dream of completing Yuri’s dream). A month later, life at the Academy and Cram school basically returns back to normal; the Academy is fixed, Yukio is demoted back to his original rank, and Rin goes back to sleeping in class. The two even get to visit their mother’s grave after being handed a key by Mephisto to her home in the woods, but it’s straight back to demon fighting as Rin interrupts another mission against a demon who possess vehicles to bring his own style of fighting to the scene~.
And now for a mini, hnnng-worthy homage to all the glorious bromance and Yukio bad-assery (or fine-assery):
That’s it from us; thank you for listening (and reading)! Until next time then~!!
