So yeah, remember that last arc? Good – now forget it.
Better late than never, I say… I think most fans of the manga have a pretty firm opinion of A-1 Pictures’ adaptation of Ao no Exorcist at this point. It was darn good for a long time, but went seriously off the rails when it diverted into anime original territory. […]
For an OVA I hadn’t even realized was coming until two hours ago, I’m amazed by just how good Tokubetsu Bangai Hen really was. Let’s face it, how much you enjoyed this OVA is probably going to correlate to how much you enjoy Kuro as a character. If you’re one […]
