#253 Exorcist Love Triangle

I’ve been in some major depression lately so I’ll make this review quick.

Blue Exorcist chapter 46 : Try and Error [read here]

Ever since this series started, there’s been a love triangle buzzing in the background with Rin, Yukio, and Sheimi. It did its duty being the main character’s unreachable love interest throughout the story, but it never really advanced. Rin continued to be extremely nice to Sheimi, Sheimi continued talking about Yukio, and Yukio never returned any feelings towards Sheimi. Very generic, probably clichĂ©. Things are starting change now.

School festival is coming, the boys are scampering to find dates to go with to the dance. Well in the story’s point of view, it’s just Rin and Shima. This has been going on for the past 2-3 chapters and it is an odd path for this once high-action story.

Rin is completely confident that Sheimi would say yes, most likely based on his romantic fantasy. The reader knows that Sheimi will go ask Yukio instead. The funny thing is that Rin told her to let him talk first and she goes right ahead and says she was going to ask Yukio. She continues to remain oblivious to Rin’s feelings.

BE 46 1

Interesting that the focus veers off a couple panels with both of them worried about Yukio’s stress.

Mind blowing that Yukio actually expected Rin to succeed at asking Sheimi out. At the same time, maybe Yukio does acknowledge that Sheimi likes him. Like with Gray and Juvia of Fairy Tail? But Gray doesn’t like to call attention to it. Yukio just ignores it and gives her one of those dishonest smiles he has all the time.

He definitely acknowledges Rin’s crush on Sheimi. I believe he teased Rin 2 chapters back about it?

All this love drama… Hmm… It’s kinda weird isn’t it? Twins and a girl… like a certain Korean drama I know. I also found out that the mangaka is female as well. I bet she wanted the drama in the story eventually.

Now that I think about it, it’s not a triangle at all. It’s a straight line. Rin likes Sheimi, Sheimi likes Yukio, Yukio …? Well Yukio doesn’t look like he even likes his brother. He’s in love with his work or something. That guy has issues.

Next month’s chapter is going to be all up in this drama. Plus Illuminati stuff. I’m really worried what is going to happen to Rin especially when he said, “In the end she likes Yukio, I guess…” and makes a face like he’s trying not to cry. Did he really admit defeat?
We also have to look forward to Rin’s miso soup booth at the festival. Even though he isn’t going to the couple’s party, he is still participating in the festival.

I like how the story just rolled into this love arc without breaking the story itself. It does feel out of place, but the author is keeping some level of respectable seriousness. Most shounen I have read never has taken a break from all the slaughtering to develop a serious love story. It’s usually set in the beginning and then struggled after for the rest of the series (KHR) or stuck into retarded places for plot convenience (Naruto). Other than that, it’s kind of a joke.

I can’t wait ’till this next chapter to see how Rin deals with everything.

I can’t wait until Naruto’s next chapter to finally see how the former Hokages will affect the battlefield. Also, has anybody seen the current 5 kages? They disappeared around late last year.

I can’t wait until Bleach’s story to finally pick itself  up. This flashback is dragging on small details for far too long.

I can’t wait for Fairy Tail to get off its break so I can see if Rogue faces his alter-ego self from the future.

I can’t wait until Soul Eater’s next chapter to see if Kid actually resolves his confusion with his line between order and madness. Also, I want to know how Shinigami dies.

I can’t wait until Kuroshitsuji’s next chapter to see if Ciel ever meets the headmaster or if the headmaster will constantly run away.

I can’t wait until Hetalia’s next season. I feel so empty without it.

I can’t wait until Legend of Korra Book 2 comes out to see Korra abuse the Avatar state! Also to see how long teen love really lasts!

I can’t wait until AKB0048’s next season because it’s the only anime I actually enjoy watching and to see if they’ll actually show Acchan the 14’s whole succession ceremony!!

Wow. 9 different series spoiled. That’s a record. Sorry for all this.
I’m all pent up on emotions that I’ve been trying to keep in. Releasing my thoughts in anime/manga reviews has been an outlet for me these past couple years since I am unable to express them publicly. I’m even scared to express on anonymous forums. Here, they can be completely stated without interruption.
It no longer concerns me how many people view my blog. All I care about is that this haven exists where I can write all my opinions about the things I love and I can read all the comments from you wonderful people. I got received first negative comment recently and I was really happy. I am not sure why, but I was overjoyed that a hater exists on my blog. Thank you sir, for your honest opinion.
In my quest for mental stability, I want to know what others think. Let me know that you exist and not just a computer that spams ad links to generate fake page views.
