While Blue Exorcist is a good binge-watch, there are plenty of other great shows to move on to once you’ve finished it.
In the early 2010s, Blue Exorcist was a popular shounen anime. Despite the fact that it came out in 2011, the animation is still relevant today. For the most part, newer anime fans would be baffled as to whether or not this is a more recent or more classic show.
As time went on, the anime industry saw an increase in the number of shounen-fantasy series, making classics like Blue Exorcist increasingly obscure. The following ten suggestions are for fans who enjoyed both seasons of this anime and were looking for something similar.
When people die, the Millennium Earl takes their souls and puts them in Akuma, where they can be used for his evil purposes (his mechanical weapons). For such souls, there is only one way out: the use of a weapon called Innocence, which can be used to perform an exorcism.
In order to stop Earl from wiping out the entire human race, Allen Walker and his fellow members of the organization he belongs to must stop him.
2. Soul Eater
There are various supernatural missions for which Death Scythes are useful, and they are trained at the Death Weapon Meister Academy. They’re not really weapons, though; these scythes are hybrid humans with the ability to transform into Demon Weapons after consuming the souls of one witch and one hundred evil creatures.
When a group of high school students band together to fight evil, they also have a lot of fun doing it.
In this anime, Yato, a lesser-known god, performs menial tasks for the benefit of humans in exchange for 5 Yen. Everything changes in his life and Hiyori’s life the moment their paths cross.
Hiyori soon realizes she has gotten a lot more than she bargained for when they become embroiled in the lives of celestial creatures.
4. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Fullmetal Alchemist will be a treat for Blue Exorcist fans who adored the sibling bond. Orphans grow up in a world where magic and supernatural creatures coexist with humans, and they learn the skills and power they need to join the military of their city.
Their government had kept a lot of information secret from its own citizens, and the more people they interact with, the more they realize this.
5. Seraph Of The End
Vampires take control of the human race and use it as a source of food and a breeding ground. Vampire hunting armies have replaced most of the adult human population, and their sole mission is to exterminate all vampires from the face of the earth.
It’s all about Mikaela and Yuuichiro’s love for one another, and how they’ll put anything in their way, even if one of them is a vampire with the power to kill them.
6. My Hero Academia
The anime series My Hero Academia is hard to miss if you’re a fan of the genre. ‘Deku’, or Izuku Midoriya to his friends, is an innocent young man who gains the world’s most powerful Quirk. His story became an instant hit with fans.
The best parts of this anime are the fast-paced action sequences, interesting plot twists, and beautiful animation.
7. The Devil is a Part-Timer!
After the Devil is defeated by the Hero, he flees to the Earth. Upon arriving at the MgRonald’s, he finds himself stripped of his superhuman abilities and forced to work as an average human at the fast food joint.
Days spent in peace on Earth are shattered when he learns that the Hero has tracked him down and will not stop until the Hero dies. There are only 12 episodes in this anime, but it’s a must-see for anyone looking to laugh a lot.
8. Attack On Titan
This is yet another well-known anime series: Attack on Titan. The story of humans being surrounded by cannibalistic creatures called titans was an instant hit when it premiered in 2014.
Shows like this one were praised for their outstanding animation, surprising plot twists, and the skill with which they dealt with difficult subjects like racism and discrimination. Fans of long-running series will appreciate that a fourth season is on the way.
Naruto was the gateway anime series for the majority of new anime viewers. People who aren’t familiar with anime, on the other hand, might want to start with this series to see why it’s so popular.
Every genre is represented in Naruto: there are combat scenes as well as comedic ones, as well as romance and drama.
10. Tokyo Ghoul
Tokyo Ghoul will appeal to those who enjoyed Blue Exorcist but wanted something a little darker. Sui Ishida created the anime, which follows a young Kaneki as he becomes partially consumed by a ghoul.
He transforms into a ghoul and must keep his new identity a secret from both his human and ghoul friends. The gruesomeness of this series earned it a cult following, thanks to the graphic nature of its death and horror scenes. The first season was adored by all, but as the series progressed, the number of devoted fans dwindled.
