Blue Exorcist Manga Series Synopsis
The world of Blue Exorcist consists of two dimensions joined as one, like a mirror. The first is the world in which the humans live (Assiah), the other is the world of Demons (Gehenna).
Normally, travel between the two worlds, and indeed any type of contact between the two, is impossible. However, the demons can pass over into this world by possessing anything that exists within it.
Satan is the Chief of Demons, but there is one thing that he doesn’t have and that’s a container in the human world that is powerful enough to hold him!
For that purpose, he procreated Rin Okumura, his son from a human woman, but will his son agree to his plans, or will he become something else…?
