About the Author

Manga creator, writer and illustrator Kazue Kato was born in Tokyo on July 20, 1980. In 2000, at age 19, she won the prestigious Tezuka Award for her work Boku to Usagi (Rabbit and I) published in Akamaru Jump. From 2005 to 2006 her series Robo to Usakichi, a sci-fi adventure featuring a rabbit (again!) was published in the monthly magazine Shonen Sirius (Kodansha). 

Her latest series, Blue Exorcist, began in Jump Square in April of 2009.

 

Kazue Kato has used a rabbit as a self-portrait in her author’s notes since her debut, and her titles often have some relation to rabbits.

It was hard to put this first volume down. It really got me into the anime, and I was recommending this series to friends in no time. The artwork is amazing and the characters are humorous and well developed. The series only has about 11 or 12 volumes out right now, and it takes a few months for the next volume to come out, so if you are like me and dying for the next book, maybe you should just re-read it. Or, if you are new and considering but don't like to wait, then perhaps wait a few months before starting this series.

Ao No Exorcist (Blue Exorcist) starts off slow, but once you read far enough in it really starts up and gets you heated, no pun intended. Kato Zazue's ongoing series is, in my opinion, better as an anime, but the manga was good enough for me to buy volumes 1-2, and maybe volume 3 in the near future. It is good enough for me to cosplay as Amaimon though, and to get a 4/5 rating from me.
