Blue Exorcist Anime:
The Blue Exorcist anime is extremely popular all over the world, and for good reason. This anime is very beautifully crafted by the elite studio A-1 Pictures has produced some of the best anime series such as Nanatsu no Taizai, Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, and Yakusoku no Neverland. The anime is based off the manga, however, it strays quite a lot. It actually strays to the point where the fans have to wonder if the anime will any longer, even follow the story of the manga. But surprisingly, as I mentioned before, the anime is still just as loved as the manga.
Despite the simple plot, this anime is extremely entertaining. I would recommend this anime especially to the people, who are new to watching anime.
Blue Exorcist Manga:
The manga is actually loved more than the anime in this case. Blue Exorcist manga is a must-read, as it is one of the best shounen manga to grace this planet. If you want the original unchanged story, then I highly recommend that you go check out the manga. The manga gives us a more straight-forward and clean story, without any plot-holes. The manga is also just as enjoyable as the anime. One thing I absolutely love about this series is that even the clichés seem fresh just because of how they get implemented.
