Ao no Exorcist finally starts it’s plot. While the Proffesors One Eye’s plot was a bit cliched, it was executed brilliantly. The whole Stan’s son is taboo thing is very well played this episode. There’s Shiemi too finally deciding on becoming an exorcist after seeing Rin wounded which was very cute. Yukio’s revelation that he also looks up to Rin is a very nice touch too.
Like what I said with Hanasaku Iroha, “Patience is a virtue” finally paid off (albeit less here since Hanairo’s latest episode was just AWESOME)!
