This section, or a part of it, has been transcluded from Volume 5; any changes involving it should be made there instead. / 

In heads of the various Myodha temple families gather to discuss recent events surrounding the Eyes of the Impure King. Revelations at the meeting only deepen suspicion of Suguro's father, Tatsuma, and angry accusations follow. Tatsuma's silence on the matter isn't helping either. Amid all the swirling distrust, Rin tries to make sense of things but struggles to keep his flame in check. Then Rin receives a letter that may shed more light on the current situation, and the secret past![3]

The Story So Far[]

Unknown to Rin Okumura, both human and demon blood runs in his veins. In an argument with his foster father, Father Fujimoto, Rin learns that Satan is his true father. Satan suddenly appears and tries to drag Rin down to Gehenna because Rin has inherited his power. Father Fujimoto fights to defend Rin, but dies in the process. Rin decides to become an Exorcist so he can someday defeat Satan and begins studying at the Exorcism Cram School under the instruction of his twin brother Yukio, who is already an Exorcist.

It is now summer vacation, but the Exorcism Cram School students must undergo a special training camp in the woods. After a difficult test and a frightening encounter with Amaimon, everyone learns that Rin is the son of Satan. Rin is forced to appear as evidence at an inquiry of Mephisto by the Knights of the True Cross. The court lets Rin go on the condition that he pass the Exorcist Certification Exam in six months. Under the supervision of Shura and Yukio, he begins learning to control his flame.

On the first day of training, someone steals the Left Eye of the Impure King from the academy's Deep Keep and Yukio gets a phone call informing him of an emergency summons. The culprit behind the crisis is Saburota Todo, a former teacher who has since joined the demons…

After failing to capture Todo, Rin and Yukio go with the other students to the Kyoto Filed Office to help guard the Right Eye of the Impure King. This is Rin's first activity with the other cram school students since the inquiry and an apparently unbridgeable rift has opened between them…[2]

In the next volume…[]

Mamushi and Todo now have both eyes of the Impure King and are headed for the temple that was once the center of the Myodha sect. Mamushi wants to seal the eyes away, but may be too late to realize Todo's true purpose—the awakening of the Impure King! Meanwhile, Rin learns more about Father Fujimoto's connection to Tatsuma and the origin of the Koma Sword. Rin will need the weapon and all of his strength to face the terrible power of the Impure King


We've reached the middle of this long story arc. It goes on for just a bit longer!

And something amazing happened. Blue Exorcist "is going to be an anime!" I can't wait!

Now enjoy volume 6!
