Timeline / Blue Exorcist

Go To

A rough timeline of events in Ao no Exorcist. Due to lack of manga canon dates for events, everything is organized in relation to the first chapter/episode, and the 1995 birthdate from the anime will be ignored. Due to the nature of a timeline page, all of the spoilers will remain untagged. Read at your own risk.
