For those curious where this new Blue Exorcist anime sits, it covers volume 10-15 of the original manga. Studio VOLN is handling the anime this time around with director Daisuke Yoshida at the helm. Toshiya Ono is heading up the show's scripts while Yurie Oohigashi brings the anime's character designs to life.

If you are not familiar with Blue Exorcist, you should know the series has a long history with Shonen Jump. The story began under creator Kazue Cato in April 2009, and it is ongoing. In 2011, the series was optioned for an anime by A-1 Pictures, and the studio handled the show's first two seasons. You can check out both shows on Crunchyroll right now. So for more information on Blue Exorcist, you can read the manga's official synopsis below:

"Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth-the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin's veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. Can Rin fight demons and keep his infernal bloodline a secret? It won't be easy, especially when drawing his father's sword releases the demonic power within him!"
