It’s been a hot minute since we I last discussed Blue Exorcist! Similarly to the Festival Arc, the Illuminati Arc demonstrates a massive shift in the narrative, with comrades taking up new positions and the stakes rising for the ExWires of the True Cross Academy Cram School. In this episode, I analyse how the arc works really well with its counterparts, the shift of character dynamics, the beauty of the main antagonism at this part of the narrative and more. And no, this is not a conspiracy theory episode.

I really appreciate the 100+ followers on Twitter; our community grows! Also great to interact with you all. Thanks again. If you aren’t following, my feed should be on the right of this page if you wish to check it out – or just scroll down to the Twitter button.
