Ao no Exorcist episode 20

Woohoo, now this is what I call action! We’ve finally arrived at the good part. Rin, who’s once again under attack by an unknown enemy, is growing stronger with each passing day. And it seems that his enemies have finally started to notice of his growth.

During this episode it’s Rin’s friends who get attacked. It started with his friends back at the church, where Rin used to live a ‘normal’ life. The victims weren’t exactly dead, they were wrapped by this so-called magical web, unable to escape. This wasn’t your everyday spider-web. It was a magical substance, one so powerful that the medical personnel didn’t even know how to dissolve it.

It was clear that the culprit was after Rin, mainly because he’s the son of Satan. Once again Rin’s bloodline comes back to haunt him. All that’s left to do is to train, get stronger and defeat any and all enemies that might cross your path. Rin did exactly that. With the help of the always lovely Kirigakure, Rin managed to obtain basic control over his demonic flames. This was a huge first step for Rin, in his quest to defeat his father, king of all that is evil.

But yet another unexpected event occurred right after that. Well, I wouldn’t go about calling it unexpected, after all.. He’s a demon with an evil background. Mephisto was placed under arrest, although he walked away, by the current Paladin, under suspicion of creating artificial life forms.

Now this is where it gets even more interesting. It’s time for Rin to put all this training to the test. Rin barges in to the school cafeteria, where his friends and brother are being held hostage by that unknown enemy, and turns up the heat, literally. It turns out that Rin’s flames possesses the ability of dissolving the enemy’s magical web. Using his flames in a controlled state, Rin managed free his friends from those nasty webs. Rin, tired of being powerless, mounted an attack on his enemy and managed to knock her out of the window using his powerful flames. Once on the ground and the mask was removed, it turned out that it was not professor Neuhaus, who was suspected of being the culprit, but some unknown woman. She quickly regains consciousness and flees, only to be chased by professor Neuhaus. Unfortunately, the others did not realize and captured professor Neuhaus instead using Kirigakure’s poison fang attack. Professor Neuhaus then shared some very startling news. Apparently that woman, who attacked Rin and the others, was none other than his wife.

My, my.. This was quite the exciting episode. At the end you could see an exorcist approaching the sulking Yukio, who wasn’t able to protect Rin this time. It seems there was someone who wanted to meet the depressed Yukio. I have my suspicions of who it could be, but I rather not spoil it!
