    Ao no Exorcist

    As i watched this show i felt a very familiar memory.

    Its as if this show just completely copied D. Gray Man. Most people never read D.Gray man so they wouldn't understand the similarities but:

    1. Origins of main character
    2. Exorcist
    3. Exorcist with connections to the Devil.
    4. Side characters are pretty much all the same.
    5. Levels of weapons/enemies.
    6. Devil and subordinates same system.


    The animation and such is all pretty nice, and for all intesive purposes its a lot better done than the D.GrayMan anime was(although the DGM manga still beats both). But what i don't understand is how much they ripped off of DGM and how boring this series is. Now i love good animation, but such a plain story for an exorcist anime is pretty abnormal.

    I Liked animation, hated story/ripping of other anime.

    Well the relations between characters is pretty much the same, especially for the main character.

    Of course they are "somewhat" similar because of the exorcist theme, but they are REALLY, REALLY similar on plot and character relations.

    tbh I don't really see the similarities between Allen and Rin
    In a way I guess :/
    Rin is directly the son of Satan however Allen was only related to Satan/The Earl because he wanted Mana to come back to him. Then he got his demon eye and trained with Cross and blah blah blah.
    I sorta understand what you're getting at but

    Well Allen is essentially Satan's son. The 14th aka "mana" whole existence was pretty much for a weapon of satan, if not Satan himself. The "earl" really doesn't play as much as a role of satan, he's more of a deviant than anything else. Allen himself become part of the whole "armageddon" plan as he is growing to be the next 14th.

    The 14th however comes incredibly close.

    Honestly, if you are coming from the anime, you probably don't understand shit.

    Yup, they stopped right before most of the important stuff happened and ended it with filler.

    Same as Soul Eater.
