Ao no Exorcist Episode 19 – How to Bake an Awesome Cake
After the failure of an episode last week (The one where Konekomaru turned into a chicken), we get another episode to toss into the trash. Isn’t that wonderful? It’s the stuff dreams are made of. Just wonderful and…Who am I kidding? The fact that Rin and Yukio didn’t know the difference between a Christmas cake and birthday cake was surprising, though not something significant. It’s not like someone’s going to reprimand them for not knowing. Talk about pointing out stupid things for a lame joke or two.
I skimmed through this episode without so much as looking back, so here’s the summary: Shima goes around asking the girls for their birthdays and finds out that Izumo’s is soon. He then plans her birthday party in secret. Rin and the bald chicken monk are to bake the cakes, Shiemi is to decorate the room with Suguro, and Shima has to find Izumo a birthday present. Unfortunately, he spills the beans, being the idiot he is.
So while we did get a nice little glimpse into the backgrounds of Rin and Yukio (mostly pertaining to their birth), the episode was a dud. It feels like a completely wasted week especially considering that this show isn’t going to be as long as something like Fairy Tail or Naruto (Not that they were any good).
At least Neuhaus is going to come back with a vengeance. Judging from the next episode preview, he’s still after Rin. I wouldn’t mind another epic fight or two; there’s been a severe lack of them in Ao no Exorcist. I blame shoddy production teams and shoddy mangakas. Hurr Hurr, that’s the whole team.
