Rokuro Enmado does not want to be an exorcist, when he meets a mysterious girl named Benio Adashino. The 14-year-old is serious about being an exorcist, and she wants to fight the monstrous creatures called Kegare. Because their destinies are intertwined, Rokuro and Benio are called the “Twin Star Exorcists.” And they are fated to marry... and to conceive the “Prophesied Child.”
Twin Star Exorcists, Vol. 7 (Chapters 22 to 25, entitled Exorcisms) opens with the fiery end of Rokuro's “ascertainment ritual,” and the revelation of his spiritual protector shocks everyone. Now, the youngest member of the Twelve Guardians, Shimon Ikarusa, who arrived to test Rokuro and Benio, is in grave danger on the eve of overseeing Benio's ascertainment ritual. Plus, here comes the Basara.
THE LOWDOWN: The Twin Star Exorcists manga once had a narrative that seemed to be in a constant state of flux. The introductions of new characters and subplots seem constant.
Twin Star Exorcists Volume 7 focuses on a few characters and on the inevitable goal of bringing Rokuro and Benio together to produce an important child. Creator Yoshiaki Sukeno offers a busy narrative, which is often quite engaging and invigorating, but readers seem to like the long, involved serials. Twin Star Exorcists offers that and some nice battle manga. I still think, however, the idea of young characters fated to produce a child... against their better judgment... to be too fun to pass up.
I READS YOU RECOMMENDS: Fans of action-fantasy, shonen manga will want to try the “Shonen Jump” manga, Twin Star Exorcists.
