Blue Exorcist: Volume 4

by Kazue Kato, 195 pages

After Shura's involvement, her higher-ups in the Vatican want to know why Rin--now clearly shown to be "of Satan"--isn't dead, since that was her original mandate as an exorcist. The ensuing hearing before the court means Rin's classmates now know his secret, too. And they do not all accept this revised image of him with open arms.

Aw, poor Rin. He's such a nice kid. And he was just starting to appreciate what it meant to have friends. They'll come around, I'm sure. In the meantime, he's got to learn how to control his powers, otherwise the court's going to change their mind about allowing his continued existence. I'm a big fan of family-bonding in my reading, so I look forward to seeing how Rin's rational, talented fraternal twin Yukio (also a son of Satan, but one who doesn't appear to have inherited any of his daddy's powers) is developed now that the secret's out and everyone will be comparing the two of them.
