the story took place in a world where human lived to fend themselves from the demons. humans lived in a world called Assiah, while demons in Gehenna. traveling between 2 worlds was impossible. however, the demons can passed over to the human world by possessing the humans. Satan was the god of all demons, he was so powerful that he needed a human powerful enough to contain him without bleeding to death within minutes. humans that are able to fight the demons were known as Exorcists. Rin was created by Satan, a son he had in the human world, also his medium to passed over to the human world. Rin was adopted by a Priest/Exorcist, who constantly pointed Rin in the correct direction. unfortunately he was sacrificed protecting Rin from a demon attack. to avenge for his foster father's death n also to proof himself, Rin decided to follow the path of an Exorcist.
Yukio, Rin's younger brother was a completely opposite character compared to Rin. Yukio was smart, earning his Exorcist license at a young age. Rin, on the contrary, was mostly physical. he was active, straightforward n always rushed head on into fights. we were simply impressed with the anime, which looked n felt so classic, yet was so well paced with some catchy points to keep us completely hooked from its beginning. despite the supernatural n action genre, it contained large amount of decent humor. n i definitely had not anticipate shedding tears for some unexpected progress of the plot!
