hmmm....how did i start picking this up....
i think i was bored and i wanted another manga to read so i just went onto onemanga (can't believe it got shut down!) and was looking at the recent updates and saw Ao No Exorcist 4. i think the title interested me so i checked it out, read the summary and all ready scanned chapters, and well there you go! now i'm hopelessly addicted!
The anime catched my attention and after watching some few episodes, I started to look for the manga so I can understand the story better. The color pages are really eye-catching too.
I happened to stumble upon it while looking for a new manga to read. At first it had a DGM-esque feel to it so I thought it to be a little cliched, although after a while I found myself unable to stop reading it.
Hmm I remember browsing for a new manga to read when AnE was newish and I glanced at a few pages and wandered off before actually reading it XD Then a few chapters later i started actually reading it cuz the artwork caught my attention again and I suddenly went 'WOW' and was so hooked until I ran out of chapters to read and couldn't get into anything new so I hunted for raws (which is something i used to be against!) then joined JAC
Heehee AnE did good things for me!
On ap (the site that told you who many time you spent watching anime), i saw that people suggested AnE to the people who liked DGM... So i started watching the anime, and it was so great that i read the chapters.
You really want to know how I picked AnE? My reason would be the most random one out here. XD
Since I couldn't help my curiosity, I checked for the episodes, then I read the summary. I admitted that the plot attracted me the most; I wonder how it would be if Satan's son becomes an exorcist instead. And so far I like it.
AnE developed such a dedicated fanbase giving it a sub-forum felt really natural. Especially with the anime starting and the volumes selling well in the States.
I actually started reading AnE when it was pretty new because the raws looked so interesting. Maybe not chapter one but at least by chapter 3. I had fallen pretty far behind though and caught back up last week.
I read AnE because I watched the anime PV and thought that it was awesome. So I decided to read the manga and so on. (:
Well I am a hardcore fan of UVERworld, so I downloaded their single Core Pride, saw the picture cover of the CD, went "wow this should be good" and started reading the manga and watching the animes.
Well in my case i knew that Ao no Exorcists managed to get a section, so i though for that too happen, it had to be have at least some success and has i was trying to read a manga that wasn't that long, i decided to give it a shot
It's a good manga, nothing extraordinary, but enjoyable of reading
I saw it while browsing through these forums but I ignored it. Then I saw it had and anime still ignored it. But then I was bored a Saturday and decided why not and I didn't regret it. It was instantly one of my fav new(ish) manga's out there.
I think I caught a glimpse of it during some sort of advertistment while watching anime.
Don't watch much anime, so it was either Madoka Magica or Nichijou...
Saw it again while reading DGM on mangastream:
And then part of an anime episode while my friend was watching it.
Then, during last month, I was utterly bored, remembered about it an started reading. xD
I've enjoyed it so far and am looking eagerly for the next chapter.
Nothing 'epic' has happened yet, but I look forward to it~
Along with AnE, I picked up a love for mameshiba. xD
I was browsing some manga-reading website, and saw that chapter 4 of Ao no Exorcist had been scanlated. The title intrigued me (eh, just for the "exorcist" part xD), and the chapter was fun so I read from the beginning. Then I forgot it for a while (as it hadn't many chapters at that time), but less than a year ago or so I picked it up again and was hooked
Some funny ones here in this thread
Was thinking to try a new random manga out, since I was bored of waiting on Bleah, Naruto, One Piece and DGM which all of them i've been a very long reader on.
I picked Ao no Exorcist, as soon as yesterday, and read it all in one go because the name got stuck with me after seeing it a few times, I liked it.
Was super amazed, didn't expect a manga this good
I really hope it turns out to be a long term story, that keeps getting better, since it has huge potential, looking forward to more Ao no Exorcist!
