I was thinking "oh yay, Blue Exorcist is doing well!" Then I saw the description. No, that is not the plot! Stick with what Kazue said - "the path of a boy who was born between Satan and a human."
We aren't going to see Amaimon for a while. I'm really surprised that we're seeing Shura's designs so early. But plus fillers, I think we'll only see Amaimon mid-season, and then there'll be more fillers with him, building up the climax of the arc in chapter 14.
So, 4 days till the chapter is released, 3 days till the simulcast is broadcast, and tonight the Japanese premier of Ao no Ex!
Thank you, thank you, Mysterious_Kaitou!
Time and clocks seems to have a big role in Mephisto's life, judging by his 'crest'. Who is he, a time-traveller?
Also, in the second picture with Kazue's sketchings, there's a couple of new faces.
Like the pair next to the weird looking Yukio. The guy looks like older version of Rin, complete with hands in his pockets, so maybe it's the twins' dad (the one who was possessed) and their mother? The guy has something like a tattoo on his cheek, similar to the guy from the Kyoto temple (father of the three snake girls).
There are also two additional characters on the class photo, a tall boy and a girl with glasses (I think), standing behind Takara. Takara being a girl with two dolls this time. It goes well with my theory that the doll is a demon and the kid holding it - its puppet.
Just a gentle reminder to everyone, we have an Ao no Exorcist anime thread in the Otaku Theatre subforum, so please post your thoughts etc on the anime there and not in this thread
If you've discovered your post is missing from this thread, it probably means one of the globals or admins moved it over to the anime thread. So make our lives easier too and just post anything anime-related there
I'd like to discuss Astaroth appearing in the anime as the possessed boy from the first chapter. I know it belongs to the anime forum, but it's also a manga spoiler so at the same time, it shouldn't be posted there. So for convenience sake let's forget where this theory comes from.
It would make sense that the possessed boy was someone important - because satan was immediately informed, I think. Or maybe he always knew where Rin was and just couldn't possess Shiro. But then, he'd at least try to possess someone else from the church. On the other hand, would Shiro, awesome as he is, defeat so easily such a powerful demon? Ah, so complicated :/
it seems that the chinese website has posted a small short (4 pages)
so can some please translate this as soon as possible?

It's just the extra that was in one of the SQ II and later in the tanks... Didn't whatever group that's doing AoEx's scanlation did that?
And no, I don't read the English scans of AoEx at all, so I have no clue if they have done it or not.
I'm merely telling you, that this is old material (more than a year old), and it could have already been done.
The first one was translated a year ago, but the second one is new to me. But.. GAHAHA!! Oh, Rin is jealous of the girls loving Yukio! Trololo~ (Please Rin, stick with your current hairstyle, it's much more adorable.)
JAC still hasn't scanlated "Kuro no Iede". sala-san already did the translation, though, as QofM also translated the second omake a year ago.
On topic, in the manga I think Astaroth is one of the 8 demon kings, but among the least powerful. Finestela, was Astaroth in volume 2 (chapter 4) referred to as a "King of Decay", or was it like the Impure King?
Astaroth = King of Decay
Amaymon = King of Earth
Azazel = King of Air
Egyn = King of Water
The way the 8 kings are addressed is ___ no Ou, which is just ___'s King, or King of ___.
The Impure King is, again, something completely different, and not one of the 8 Kings of Hell. The omake (extra) material in Vol.5 have him listed as an underling of Astaroth.
I'm not sure the part about Astaroth being the weakest, since they never really talked about these in depth anywhere.
I believe this is the spoiler for AnE
Color insert and ToC page
Volume 6 doesn't have any profiles or data but it contains a Kuro sidestory along with a mangaka omake. Download link
