Anime Review: Blue exorcist

First, let me be in my fan girl mode first......RIIIIIINNNNNN!!!!! <3

It been a while since I watch some good anime that didn't involve these

-girls with spoiled attitude and sexual object
-male character who supposed to be the main character are useless
-too many boobs or fan service
-too cliche
-blah blah blah yada yada

for example: Esther from Trinity Blood

"oh, I'm so innocent and fragile, why is everybody love me? why he never want me? oh my I hurt, help me please~"

okay, I don't like her! But the anime was good!

I saw plenty of Blue exorcist fanart around DeviantART and I decided to open my heart for some anime and it was pretty good!

The element presence in the anime really suited to my weirdassfetish of brotherhood, fatherhood, sanctity, paranormal and twin brother. As always my favourite character have to die, ALWAYS!


Anyway, the anime is about a teenage boy name Rin who live in a monastery with his family. Rin, the main protagonist of the story is kind-hearted boy with some attitude and people didn't like him because of his unearthly power and ability. Only the worker, his father and brother understand and love him. Little that he know that he actually have demonic blood flowing through his veins and a human body. His 'REAL' father come to earth and wanted to take him but he refuse because he wanted to protect human (good kid) and now he become a full demon and become exorcist.

Introducing Rin, the main character

In the first episode, there is some sensation of Western aura that might involve in the anime despite the main character attend regular Japanese middle school and struggling with his future after he finished his middle school. He was raised in a monestry and have a twin brother who is more smarter than him but love him as much.

Yukio, the main character younger twin brother

So here you got some loving family with lovely neighbourhood, a brat who is really good at heart but find it hard to make people like him.


and then bang! Demons come and wanted to take Rin to Hell

just another good day turn bad in anime world

...somewhere in my heart I knew his father have to die, every movie or drama must have a "stresser" to make it interesting no?


Too bad, I like his father, he remind me of Father Anderson of Hellsing

Hell yeah! Not your average Reverend

or maybe because of the glasses :9

I like pious old men who know how to kick some demon ass =D

The brotherhood is very interesting, its not your average twin brother from Ouran High School Host Club Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin or some brotherhood of long battle trying to kill each other like Itatchi and Sasuke or Cain and Abel

(all hail brotherhood!)

(Hikaru and Kaoru)

umm...it's bromance....

 umm....still a bromance....


Okay, it just a fanart.....don't get me wrong I love incest but they only exist in fantasy, just fantasy! I can't bare myself if it exist in real human form! It just wrong! No way!

Itatchi and Sasuke was first like....

and then they were all like....

and Itatchi was...

....in the end they were all...


If you know the Bible story of Abel and Cain, Trinity Blood have the story more or less the same, there is no love between them, just two twin brother try to kill each other

Although Rin and Yukio have strong bonding, Rin didn't want to get his brother involved in his conflict as both have different personality and status in their school. There are some friction between them but they managed to solve it anyway, in the end Rin and Yukio just have some silly issues between brothers but they are protecting each other.

You know what like brothers are like~

Rin and Yukio shared the same room in their dorm so it's easier for Yukio to check on his demon brother

Some argument on Yukio position as exorcist but Rin didn't know it up until their father death

Rin: I’ll eat it!
Yukio: Nii-san, are you all right?
Rin: Granny is calling me…
Yukio: What?! We never even met her! Wait, don’t you dare follow her!

Maybe, brotherhood turn me on, I dunno, I just like brotherhood~

wait, too early? XD

......and I really like their relationship with their father, he love his two son unconditionally and treat them with love (in his way)


Overall this anime is great, the main character have the promising charisma and personality that will make the anime interesting. The chemestry between characters are also dynamic and make me wanted to watch the episode more. The story itself is entertaining, all and all its worth to watch for whole season and I hope they could make another season and continue to be this great

I gave it 3/5

P/S: it's only air 6 episodes, so I want to see the development of this anime =)

Okay, I'm in my fan girl mood over these series because its been a while since I watch a good anime =D

Top 10 Myths about Introverts

Found this on Tumblr and reblogged them here since most of Tumblr user tend to use small fonts, I managed to dig down the sources.

So yeah, this stuff is so hard to ignore and I really love to share it around.

Top 10 Myths about Introverts

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone.
Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.

Myth #7 – Introverts are weird.
Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds.
Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.

Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun.
Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.

Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts.
Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ.
