Book 70

Blue Exorcist, Vol. 6Blue Exorcist, Vol. 6 by Kazue Kato

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The storyline is beginning to take a turn to the dark. Picking up from the last volume where the exorcists and the cram students are trying to stop the theft of one of the eyes of the impure king and get the one that’s already been stolen back. Worse, they fear there is a traitor among them and it might just be Bon’s father who is mysteriously not there to defend himself.

To make matters worse, Rin’s friends still don’t know how to handle him being the Son of Satan. Renzo is okay with it, or at least pretending to be, Shiemi is beating herself up over her reaction, Konekomaru is frightened. Rin has to learn to control his blue flame before he is put to death but his training with Shura isn’t going well. Just as he starts getting some control, Rin hears a blow up between Bon and his father, and remembering his own last words with the man who raised him, intervenes.

Both with Rin and the traitor things rapidly go from bad to worse. The storyline is really cooking now. It’s becoming more layered and intriguing than earlier ones and I’m looking forward to the next one. However this one ran a bit short and had two bonus stories. While I liked the bonuses, I would have liked more of the actual story but I suspect it has to do with balancing the arc for volume seven.
