Ao no Exorcist: Kuro no Iede (2011)
青の祓魔師: クロの家出

Kuro no Iede

the short OVA was a side-story of Ao no Exorcis (2011). Rin's late father, Shiro adopted a monster cat when it ran amok in town seeking for its master. after Shiro managed to tame it, he named the cat Kuro. ever since Shiro's death, Kuro had been living with Rin. due to an incident, Kuro felt unimportant to Rin and went on a hunt for a new master while trying to tame its hungry stomach.

the episode doesn't bring much extra to the series. Kuro and Rin had always been strong characters, fighting against each other weren't something new. but while the whole episode was focused on Kuro, it got a little dull as he traveled from one spot to another, meeting mostly those that we already knew well enough. but it was a sweet episode when the ending met our expectation yet still took us by surprise.
