This section, or a part of it, has been transcluded from Volume 6; any changes involving it should be made there instead. / 

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[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.

However, during summer vacation forest training, everyone learns that Rin is the son of Satan, and he appears as evidence at the questioning 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…

Rin and the others go to the Kyoto Field Office of the Knights of the True Cross to assist in the defense of the Right Eye of the Impure King. When they arrive, they learn that almost half of the combatants there belong to a religious sect named Myo-o Dharani and their leader is Ryuji's father, the High Priest Tatsuma Suguro.

Tatsuma fails to attend the meeting of the Myodha family heads and his behavior during an attack on the field office was unusual, causing some to become suspicious of him.

Then the traitor finally reveals herself!!

Mamushi Hojo of the Hojo bloodline of archpriests cooperates with Saburota Todo in stealing the Right Eye and the two disappear. Then Ryuji confronts his father about his suspicious behavior. When Rin intercedes and uses his flame—expressly forbidden by the Order—Shura uses an imprisonment spell to incapacitate him and Rin ends up stewing in solitary confinement!![2]

In the next volume…[]

Awakened by the traitor Saburota Todo, the Impure King's massive form threatens to engulf the city of Kyoto. As the Exorcists of the Tokyo Branch and the monks of the Myodha temple do all they can to contain the demon, Rin and his friends find themselves separated and facing their own battles. While Rin and Ryuji race to confront the full might of the Impure King, Yukio takes on Todo single-handed and discovers that he may be his own worst enemy!
