Twin Star Exorcists (Vol. 1)
A great, fun first volume introduces this series about exorcists of demon-like creatures called kegare. Kegare are more evil as they are born from the sins of humans. This makes the story a bit more interesting than your typical exorcist manga. All the usual aspects are here, and this will please the exorcist fans, but there are some twists. First, it's got a huge dose of humour making lots of laughs help lighten the more serious tones and the main characters, a 14yo boy and girl, are told they are prophecied to marry and give birth to the foretold prophesied child. Talk about no pressure in a relationship that is off to a very rocky start from the beginning! I really enjoyed this and towards the end we get our first glimpse at what appears to be a major evil character.
