    Fairy Tail doesn't deal strictly with demons like Blue Exorcist, but it does play with lots of fantasy creatures and super-powered characters. The show is about a guild known as "Fairy Tail," who perform odd jobs across the mystical land of Fiore. There's definitely an RPG feeling to the show's setting, and characters like the fire-powered Natsu Dragneel are fun to watch in action. Certain storylines do get heavy as the show progresses, such as the one about an evil guild known as the Tartaros, but Fairy Tail always remains a fun watch.

    Bleach is another action show Blue Exorcist fans should check out. It's about a Soul Reaper named Ichigo Kurosaki who fights evil spirits known as Hollows with his mentor, Rukia Kuchiki.
