Storyline

Rin and his friends, along with the rest of True Cross Academy Town, are in the midst of preparing for a festival that is celebrated only once every 11 years. While the barriers protecting the city from demon intrusions are being repaired, Rin and his twin brother Yukio are sent to the scene of an exorcism as reinforcements. Things take a turn for the worse and as they attempt to salvage their mission, they meet a mysterious young boy that may threaten everything that they know. Meanwhile, Cheng-Long Liu, a First Class Senior Exorcist from the Taiwan Branch, joins the 'simple' repair operation that forces his fate to cross with 'Satan's spawn', Rin. Written by ELEVEN ARTS

...this little gem burst my water dam, will it do the same to you?
18 March 2014 | by bcheng93See all my reviews

i know that anime movies are not for everybody but i recommend this anime movie for everybody and anybody. its got everything that a good movie needs including a good storyline, top-notch special effects, characters you care about and it is really well pace. what else can you ask for in a entertaining movie.

i've watched a lot of movies and a lot of animated and anime movies and this particular one stuck with me a lot. it is almost magical the way it just makes you feel(alive and also bittersweet...oh so bittersweet). the movie make you feel all the bittersweet moments especially when i was an adolescent. it teaches you about right and wrong and oh that sweet sweet demon boy...he will stay in my memories forever as oh so sweet and innocent and standing for whats right. just thinking about him is making me misty eyed already.

for all you movie fans out there...i give this movie a must see!

make sure you have some tissues handy cause i'm a guy and i rarely shed a tear but this one will opened up floodgates and will probably do the same to you.

whenever i wanted a good cry i watch this movie and it never fails...try it!
