Rin and his exorcist classmates are caught in a secret war against the forces of darkness.
Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father.

Rin wants to bring Yukio back into the fold of the Knights of the True Cross, but Yukio is firm in his desire to force Rin to kill him. With the airship going down in flames, the battle for Yukio’s soul begins…
