Check Out The Blue Exorcist Movie Trailer

The first movie based on Kazue Kato's supernatural manga Blue Exorcist opens in Japan today - 28 December 2012.

Manga Entertainment released the anime series here in the UK earlier in 2012 and the manga is available in English from VIZ Media.

The series follows the adventures of Rin Okamura, who is the son of Satan but wants to protect mankind from the forces of Hell by training to become an exorcist, like his human brother Yukio.

The movie introduces two new characters to the Blue Exorcist roster - the demon boy Usamaro and a new exorcist called Liu Cheng-Long.

Atsushi Takahashi is directing the film from a script by Reiko Yoshida. The prolific Yoshida has worked on everything from Digimon to the musical comedy K-On! and Romeo X Juliet.

Director Takahashi's credits include serving as Assistant Director on Spirited Away and working on Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent.

You can check out the movie's official website, but it is only in Japanese.
