The Reason Twin Star Exorcist is Just an Okay Anime
Last season saw a number of entertaining anime, including the likes of My Hero Academia and RE Zero - Starting Life in Another World, which I feel were the two best anime to have come out this season. However, not every anime that came out was amazing. Some were mediocre, and some were just okay.
Twin Star Exorcist is an anime that was just okay. It wasn't bad by any means, but it didn't have anything that made it stand out in the crowd. I guess it wouldn't be inaccurate to say that this series was an example of an average shonen. It had all of the standard shonen tropes, some of which it used well and others that fell flat. As interesting as the concept was, and as good as I think this anime could have been, I believe that it failed to live up to its full potential.
All that said, I don't think this was a terrible anime. Not very good, perhaps. But not terrible. I ascribe to the belief that an anime doesn't need to be excellent in order to be entertaining, and Twin Star Exorcist fits this. It's not amazing, but it still does a decent job of entertaining me.
If you're into the shonen/action/romantic comedy genre, then you'll enjoy this, just like I did. And hey! This anime is supposed to have 50 episodes and only 13 are out, so if you do like this series, you'll have a good amount of episodes to enjoy it.
