Este tomo me agrado mucho más que el anterior, ya que aquí ya tenemos misiones, nuevos personajes mas fuertes y misteriosos. Nuestro protagonista tienen que enfrentar pruebas y creerse un gran exorcista y no depender de la llama azul.

¿Para qué leer Blue exorcist vol 3?

1. Para ver como los lazos de amistad son eternos y duraderos, cuando las personas conocen a debilidades y aciertos.
2. Conocemos la historia y antecedentes de muchos personajes misteriosos.
3. El material extra nos ayuda a entende

Buried under the boy’s manga themes of fight scenes and big bosomed girls wearing next to nothing, are some interesting ideas. I’m liking this manga more than I expected to. We start to get to know the real Rin in this volume, beneath the bluster. The brothers’ relationship is examined and it is inherently uneven. Rin, the protector, is all about his muscles. His twin, Yukio, is the studious one and at True Cross Academy the power is actually all Yukio’s as he’s already an instructor and well, R ...more

Por qué este manga está siendo tan maravilloso. Por favor. Me encanta la profundidad del personaje de Rin, e incluso me he llegado a emocionar un poquito con ciertos recuerdos. Que, hablando de recuerdos, creo que son de lo mejorcito que hace Kato. Ay, qué ganas de seguir. Este tomo ha sido GENIAL.

Blue Exorcist, Volume 3 begins with Rin and the gang busily completing missions at their newly graduated level of Exwire. Rin proves again that his methods may be unconventional, but he does things with a big heart. My favorite scene is with him and Kuro, particularly with the special wine. It was touching, funny, and very revealing of the kind of character Rin truly is.

Estoy disfrutando mucho este manga, mucho más ahora que lo leo antes de ver el anime (decisión muy acertada, debería de admitir).
Rin sigue pareciéndome un personaje genial, es divertido, tiene un buen corazón, usa una espada y ahora tiene un compañero bastante particular.
Shiemi ha ido evolucionando y cada vez me agrada más, siempre esforzándose y preocupándose por ayudar a los demás.
Yukio, creo que debería relajarse un poco más, aunque es la contraparte de Rin en muchos aspectos, siento que en e

This book was about as exciting as all the other ones in the series! Apart from the other volumes, volume 3 ends in a major cliffhanger and I cannot possibly wait to get my hands on the sequel. I definitely recommend this one for anyone looking for a quick, fun read concerning demons and exorcists.

I really liked the use of short flashbacks, it doesn't distract from the main plot by dragging on and is relevant to present motivations and action. There is also just enough mystery to keep the reader intrigued, but doesn't take focus away from characters and their goals.

In book 3, Rin tames a familiar, and proves thast he can do more than just use his flame. Rin also meets one of his "brothers", and gets it to a serious, op (over powered) fight.

This was anthor amazing book in the seres. Not much more to say other than I loved this.

It wasn't Shura Kirigakure's giant breasts being held in place by an ill fitted bikini top, it was that no significant contributions were made to the principal storyline, and I don't like that.

So I kinda marathoned the first four volumes and NOW I WANT MORE! This manga is seriously so entertaining. And Rin's adorable. Son of Satan? I hardly buy it. He's too precious.

So because Goodreads doesn't have all the volumes of this manga listed, I'm going to put my two cents in right here. I'm late to this manga because I only ever watched the anime but after rewatching that a few days ago I really wanted to spend some more time in this fictional world so I started reading the manga. And boy do I love it! Just to paint a picture, there are 60 bundles of 4 to 5 volumes in total out of this manga and I've read 58 of those bundles in the past two days.

Another great volume of Ao No Exorcist/Blue Exorcist, with a whole lot of Rin Okamura problems and whumpage as well as some adorable Shiemi and a huge character reveal. Plus, more Amaimon which I know fans love cause he causes so much trouble every time he shows up. As usual, the art is lush and wonderful and there's an expert blend of drama and humor. I especially loved the brotherly dynamics between Rin and Yukio in this book. And the cover is simply too cute for words!

I feel like this had a bit of filler to get us used to characters and introduced to more characters, but I am excited to see this next arc! I think the whole forest/lantern thing is going to be interesting, however I hope it doesn't take too long. I think Rin is becoming a great character and I am enjoying learning about his backstory and his upbringing. But this volume had too much fill

I'm not impressed that they took a perfectly awesome manga series and threw in a half naked woman and bunch of drivel about "big boobs" but the story was strong enough not to drop it to a 3. That crap is why I don't generally read much manga though. I know Western comics have the same unrealistic body types but they don't tend to fixate on womens' parts in quite the same juvenile way.

This volume is still real early in the series and so is still introducing characters that seem destined to figure prominently.

We meet Kuro, Father Fujimoto's old familiar, who becomes attached to Rin, along with Amaimo, who calls himself the King of earth. He's a demon seen first with Mephisto and then later playfully attacks Rin. Finally the volume introduces Shura Kirigakure who hints further that Mephisto has his own plans independent of the Knights of the True Cross and is present both as i

I read “Blue Exorcist volume 3” by Kazue Kato. I would say that this book is one my favorite books. It’s one my favorites because it’s in particularly in my favorite genres, fantasy. It’s full of magic and it is a good story of past and present. The setting is I guess at a magic school, carnival, and a forest. The main characters Rin Okumura, Yukio Okumura, Shiemi Moriyama, Ryuji Suguro, Renzo Shima, Konekomaru Miwa, Izumo Kamiki, Amaimon, Mephisto Pheles, Shiro Fujimoto, and Shura Kirigakure. T ...more

I have to admit that the addition of boob jokes always brings the story down a bit for me. Otherwise, I thought this volume was excellent. Kuro is a great character. His relationships with both Father Fujimoto and Rin are fantastic ways to show the grey in the fight between humans and demons. Not all demons are evil or at least not permanently. I also thought that it was good to show Rin seeing what his powers could do.
This volume is the start of the infamous boob jokes. The Japanese seems to th

In this volume you got to know more about Father Shiro Fujimoto! He was sooooo cooooool!! ;A; He kind of reminds me of Kisuke Urahara, silly but a BAMF!

A little more of the mystery was cleared. Some of the "purpose" we saw in this volume. It sure makes this series interesting! Haha, somehow the Vatican got involved in this. Quite interesting eh? Oh which reminds me that we got introduce to a new character, Shura. She is SUPER badass! She is funny too!

Rin Okumura is the illegitimate son of Satan, but he and his twin brother, Yukio, have been raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist. Once he discovers the truth, Rin swears to defeat Satan by entering the famous True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. The only trouble is, he has to keep his demon heritage a secret or he stands a good chance of being destroyed by the very people he wants to join.

This manga is up there in my top 10. Action, adventure, a smidgen of romance. The character designs are all quite unique which I appreciate. As an aside, the manga and anime are so far removed from each other one you get past that first story arc that they could be 2 completely different stories. They are both quite good, though. Do both.

Honestly, they introduced the ridiculously endowed woman wearing a bikini top that just covered her nipples and I was done. I trudged on and finished it but I'm not going to be finishing the series anytime soon. I'll stick to anime's on Netflix that have a strong story line and great characters that don't have to resort to sexual methods.

Quizás sea el más flojo de los tres que llevo leídos, pero ya veis la nota, un 4/5, así que... ¿a qué esperáis para empezar con Blue Exorcist?

Cosas que debo decir porque sino no podré irme a dormir tranquila:
-Necesito un muñequito en miniatura de Mephisto Pheles.
-Por favor, que mi teoría no sea cierta.
-¿Por qué las chicas siempre llevan faldas? ¿No se pueden poner pantalones? O_O

Enter Kirigakure! Her entrance took me completely by surprise!
May I ask: what is Amaimon's purpose? So far, he's been a pain in the butt, and he hasn't driven the plot very much. He's an interesting character though, I guess. He reminds me of Eiji Nizuma in Bakuman, for some reason.
I really liked Chapter 11 :3 Rin's childhood interests me!

- Kuro is cute! I was happy with how things turned out for him.

- Shura needs to put on a shirt! Geez! No woman would wear a bra that small. It would be so uncomfortable.

- I don't trust Mephisto. He is bad news.
