Following in the trend of giving anime series' feature length outings, the november issue of Shuiesha's Jump Square magazine has announced that a theatrical film adaptation of Blue Exorcist (also known by its Japanese name Ao no Exorcist) has been green-lit.

At least they didn't wait until the end of the final episode to announce this...

Judging by the direction the anime series has gone in this last month...do not know if want.

Not too surprising given its massive popularity at the moment. I am still looking forward to starting the TV series :s

Just to warn you; after about episode 20, it really goes down hill. One of my friends who was a huge Blue Exorcist fangirl is now going on about how the series has turned into rubbish xD

I'm not too worried; I have bad taste and the buzz in the Japanese fanbase is still mostly positive. I keep wanting to buy the US manga when I'm in town but I hate Viz >_>;

Is it just me, or does Blue Exorcist sound like a porno version of The Exorcist? Brings a whole new meaning to the expression, "The power of Christ compels you."

Why do you hate Viz? They put out some good manga.

One friend in particular knows how with Izumo, I'd love that to be the case.

Saying that though, I did once find some dojin of Izumo x giantmothdemon...I was so conflicted - my love of Izumo, or my irrational fear and hatred of moths xD

Because they often cancel the good manga partway through abruptly >_>;

They've given up on so much that I just can't buy their manga any more because I'm convinced nothing will ever be finished. Their anime department does the same thing too, when it's not making outright weird decisions (bizarre music replacements, flipper discs etc). They drive me nuts.

I don't mind buying short series from them but since AoEx has an apparently decent anime version coming out from a less insane company I'm just pretending the manga doesn't exist for now.

Oh I see. What good manga have they cancelled halfway? I guess I just like them because most of the manga I read seems to come from them, I hope they don't get cancelled now!

I thought this show was fairly terrible from the first episode, so... crikey.

Quite a lot of them. My latest annoyance was Gintama which they just abruptly pulled with no warning. Ok, it's a dorky comedy so it's not like there was an unresolved ending, but it didn't seem to be doing badly before it was suddenly cut off, and it's a pretty high profile series.

The problem is worsened by the fact that they don't actually drop the series, they just put them on "hiatus" forever so nobody else can release them. And they never communicate about anything.

Yeah that's pretty ****** of them.

As long as they keep releasing REAL though I'm happy. Although with Inoue doing only one volume a year or something I guess I already have some pretty long waits ahead of me anyway...
