Elaborate on the Storyline of the third season of ‘Blue Exorcist’?
When there is a talking about the third season, we know that there is no shortage of material for the same. Yes, we know that Blue Exorcist took loads of time for generating or building sufficient material to create an awesome second season. If the same procedural norm is followed, then we can expect that the third season will find the prominence of Rin and friends who are associated with a group called Illuminati which is led by Lucifer, the King of Light. The main hidden agenda is to bring back the evil forces and that includes Satan by unleashing demons as well as zombies on the world. Those who are familiar with the manga and have read it would clearly know that Sabutota Toda is an important member of the organization.
It is also the Season 3 which will be experiencing the invention of Gehenna Gate, as it acts as a portal between the two worlds. The construction of the gate was done by Illuminati of the former nuclear plant. However, the engineers couldn’t grasp the orders fully. Exorcists remain to be the sole ones who prevented the portal launch, but they too were unsuccessful. As per the demons account, Assiah and Gehenna were there in a single world before. Hence, the need to unite the two worlds by illuminati was very much there. In order to create an accomplishment to the task, they were required to carry out various experiments. While on the other hand, Rin and twin brother were the only ones who were capable to stop or check on that nuisance.
What are the views of the Author of Manga regarding Season 3?
The author of manga, Kazue Kato goes on a continuous basis to release chapters and that includes on monthly basis. She has to be continuously doing the same, as she opines that in Japan, she has to traditionally be on a regular mode without any hindrance or breaks. Even though, she takes break for one month, but she can’t given the current traditional norm associated with Japan.
She was apologetic as she said in the 2016 interview as she is in continuity mode to work and considering the nature of work and endurance which she has to go through, she realizes the immense importance and value which should be given to the entire author fraternity who do weekly serializations.
Considering the fact that they often have to sacrifice themselves as their mental and physical health is at stake. while she is certainly not among them.
Kato also hinted about manga’s ending and signifies about the possibility of four more arcs which means that half of the entire story is in the completion mode. She said about the manner of ending it various times but still it is not to be.
She says that there are couple of patterns which are there and one of them will bear practical implementation to the same. Since, many times, she has to bear the fact that certain things don’t work, hence that has to be put off the chart.
Based on the numerology where if 1 chapter is published in a year, then according to the same, 2023 will find its ending. Hence, this is the aspect which throws light on the surety of the third installment quite soon.
