Hey, hey, fellow people who complain about shows. I have some sad news. As you may have already heard, Blue Exorcist will be airing on Toonami. Or, as you may have seen me calling it for the past few weeks, Generic: the anime. Truly, this is one of the most boring shows to come out in very recent memory. With its bland UVERworld OP, to its bland characters that feel like they’ve been pulled straight out of TVTropes, it’s a surprise that this managed to get twenty-five episodes.
Okay, enough with that. This show is boring. It’s dull. Think Moribito with slightly more action. Or Kekkaishi with slightly more devil references. Nothing about this series stands out from anything else in its shounen-y zone. It’s not a bad show, it’s just really boring. The first two episodes make you think that it might be different but beware! It’s just a lie and it all goes away and you’re left wondering, “Why did I watch this? Am I a masochist?”
I know what you’re thinking: “Bah, what does Lambda know? She hates everything!” True, but this show is something I gave a chance to! When I dropped it at episode 8, I was told “You’re not missing much from the ending, trust me.”
Take my advice and do not watch this show. It’s not bad, but it’s boring (which is worse than bad imo). You might even accidentally fall asleep and miss Black Lagoon. This show isn’t riffing material like Sword Art Online or good like, um, [insert a good show here]. It’s just blah. People have recommended reading the manga. I’m not going to do that, but I’ll recommend reading it just so you don't watch the show.
That said: dropped.
