^its easy. just dont see the body regeneration and body destruction at both end of the same spectrum.

lest say, a demon possessing a body gives it regeneration abilities.
then lets say, a demon possessing a body too weak for him destroys it.

it means when a demon possesses a weak body, it both gives it regeneration abilities and destroys it.

if we say the destruction is greater than the regeneration then it simply gets destroyed.

It does explain Shura recognising Amaimon so fast. I was wondering how she could tell it was him if he just got himself a new body, but if he's been using it for a millennium, his face is probably plastered all over the textbooks.

Which does make it weird that Rin didn't know who he was. But then again, we all know Rin is an idiot. Or perhaps they only learn that stuff in the second semester or something.

^ Izumo was the only student who recognised Amaimon as a demon king though. And she knew how dangerous the situation was. Perhaps she has paid attention in class or she just knows it from somewhere. I suppose the students learn about the types of demons in the first semester. It's an important topic anyway.

But I'm surprised his body is that old.

^ She knew Amaimon was a Demon King, but she only recognised his name, not his face. Shura however was able to identify him on sight, so she must have known what he looked like.

I believe we already saw a pic somewhere of what people thought might be Satan's true form...
Did you mean this?
http://mangafox.me/manga/ao_no_exorcist/v01/c001/2.html
That...what is that? A cow? Horse?

looks like the body of a human, the head and legs of a ram, bat wings and the tail is a snake/fish/dragon.
I dont know.

Ram's horns suggest that this demon is Astaroth.

The serpent tail is also representative of the same demon.  Highly doubt that's Satan's form.

^ Except the demon possessing that boy in chapter 1 wasn't Astaroth ^^;

^^Partially correct anyhows. The manga never explicitly said who the demon possessing Shiratori was although in the anime he does introduce himself as Astaroth.   Still I'm pretty sure that's not Satan in the chapter 1 illustration. :D

It was probably a scrapped idea from the pilot.
Still makes you wonder who/what it was though XD

People thought it was satan because he seems to be preying on shiro and his snake tail's tongue seems to be blue fire.

http://mangafox.me/manga/ao_no_exorcist/v01/c001/27.html
that guy didnt even recognise shiro and was killed on the spot. that isnt terribly menacing.

that demon might have been satans underling. thats why he looks alike.


where did you read ram's horn and snake's tail are astaroth characteristics. the bestiary?

As for Shiratori, I think his demon belongs to Astaroth because of the Coal Tar. And has anyone noticed as well that Shiratori is the only one with a fluffy tail (except Rin)?

shiro said coal tar gather around humans with a dark nature. maybe theres nothing more to it.

thats actually an other reason why I think that demon was satan's underling. even though its meek.

^ Okay, that could be the reason why Shiratori's demon was looking for Rin. Maybe it's a scout.
