I thought this was a really cool finale. The stuff with Black was ill advised. And felt awkward and out of place. But the overall thrust of the two parter was a pretty solid story. I like the idea of Leo being the only one who can see a threat. And having to deal with it solo a lot. And I'm surprised they don't go to that well more often.

There were some scenes that didn't work very well for me. But I was impressed overall. I liked that it wasn't just Leo saves his sister from her evil fiance. That would have been too easy and obvious a story. And the final showdown in the hotel room was one of the tensest parts of this new series. Michella is enough of a character we don't want her to die. But not important enough it seems unlikely she will. A good combo.

I think the first season was flawed but ambitious. And when it came together it was truly great. I thought this season was flawed and played it safe. But it had a more consistent quality to it. I'd give both of them about a 7. I'd watch another season too.

I actually enjoyed the episodic nature of this season, because we got to see some good character development. That's why I like S2 more than S1, but if there were to be a S3 (and I really hope so!), I'd like to see it follow a plot. S2's plentiful character development sets the stage well for a S3, so let's cross our fingers and hope for a third season!

And that's what happens when you mess with a member of Libra and Klaus gets angry.
Overall i liked this season better. The first one had a messy plot, so i like how instead they decided to focus on the members of libra since each of them is a very interesting character. I hope S3 follows the same formula and we get to see them in more over the top situations.

Season 3 please ! :( this season was really more like an episodic anime
the same as season 1 but season 1 more had more plots
and this season had an actual plot only in the lastest 2 episodes
of course the rest of the epiosdes were fun and we knew a lot about other characters and enjoyed seeing K.K and her family episode
but this way , this anime should be at least a 50 episodes anime , at least give us 2 cours in 1 go , not 12 episodes every 2 years .... but as long as there is another season , I'll wait

Outstanding season of Kekkai Sensen. So odd to see so many negative reviews on the front page. Yes, maybe the first season had more of a "plot" but the writing for said plot was definitely lacking in a few areas. I remember the final episode not being too great. And it didn't help that we had to wait 25 years for it too.

Again, what made this season so great was the constant focus on the side and minor characters. Chain and K.K. won big time this season. I love them. And behind it all, there was the plot with Leo and his sister, and the season ended on that note. Reminds me of Cowboy Bebop, in a way.

Trigun, Gungrave, and now Kekkai Sensen. Yasuhiro Nightow's a fucking legend.

Can someone tell me, what's the meaning of Leo message to Klaus when he trying to say that there is monster around his sister? the one "10-33" word.

Finally the the protagonist gets his moment in the finale as expected. Leo was almost a side character in the middle of the series and he sometimes not even enough screen time. I must say the first season was better than this one but I loved this one because it focused to side characters more. Although I felt it neglected its objective, was so fast paced you sometime don't keep up and it felt like specials put to together or like filler episodes.

I don't know, I am stuck between an 8 and a 7. Be biased because of enjoyment or be critical? What to do?

So satisfying to see Leo stand up for himself, something he struggled with a majority of the season. He was totally badass against that guy. His relationship with Michella is a really special one. But when the entire crew came in to finish that guy off, holy shit was that badass. The ultimate sign of friendship right there.

I really adore this series, I think it's so fun and unique. Its music is stellar and the backdrops are beautiful.

This season did a terrific job giving the other characters the spotlight. It gave us a richer overall experience now that we understand these characters better. We know about who they are, where they came from, what they bring to the table with their powers, and what their upbringing was. This may even enhance the re-watching of the first season now that we know a lot more info about the group.

Excellent season overall. This is a very special series, and I hope one day we can experience some more insane fun with Leo and the gang. 9/10

a great and well-animated fight, also props to Leo for confronting the enemy on his own.

overall this season barely advanced the plot, but it is nice to have an insight on the Libra members' daily lives. needs more Zapp though 7/10

This episode felt too short, I wanted for it to go on... Still, it was so good. So many feelings at once, from one moment to the next. I have to rewatch this season all over again. I love this damn show and all of its crazy chars sfm. Also the Klaus x Leo moments this season were so gooooood.

I will hope and wait for next season, I really like the characters. Though I wish there was a lot more information regarding the eyes. I also wonder what Leo officially looked like with his eyes open before getting the all seeing eyes

Just finished and enjoyed, I hope the series gets a complete adaptation some day. I want to know how Leonardo's story ends (and I sure hope for a happy ending with him recovering Michela's sight).

There is no real protagonist to this series from what I can tell.

The story is told through Leo alot but mostly deals with all the characters fairly evenly.

I'm glad the Libra gang eventually came to Leo's rescue! This was definitely something he could not overcome alone but it was nice to see his shounenly determination!

10/10, please please please give us a third season!!!

Pretty damn amazing episode! Really intense and what an ending! Quite loved this second season as well to be honest.

So all in all a pretty good watch!

Quite the surprising finale.

Honestly, I don't remember much about the first season, story-wise, besides some of the characters. But this second season has been fun to watch. Especially getting to know more about the other characters in Libra. Liked the episodic format too, and the bits and pieces in between that led to the storyline at the end.

Whatever changes happened in production between the first and second season was probably the right decision.

I wasn't too thrilled about the episodic approach to this season but this episode totally made me overlook that. That fight scene in the room with Tortoise Knight playing was superb!

I think it's great many people received the new season pretty good. Personally it was a big disappointment for me.

I genuinly love the basic setting of the anime including the characters and the story they seem to be first going for (the story of s1), and the last two episodes of this season. However it disappoints me so much that they fill every episode with just background stories and other random stories of people within the city. So the biggest let down for me is that they don't do anything about the story, until episode 11. In my opinion episode 11 could have been episode 3 and they could've worked their way by telling background stories AND focus on story at the same time.

Since the overall enjoyment isn't bad and I do genuinly love aspects of this anime it's a 5/10. However if there will ever be a season 3 I am not going to watch it. After two seasons it's clear to me it is not going to live up to what I was hoping for.

Overall this season was great. No boring arc like in first seson, just fun one-episode stories. Ending was weak, just the scene where Klaus destroyed the bad guy was awesome. But Klaus destroing bad guys is always awesome!
Cool anime, cool characters. I want more of their adventures!

I definitely preferred this season to the first one. There was something more authentic-feeling to it when it was episodic compared to the awkward plot of the first season, perhaps because this season is more like how the original manga was written ((or so I've been told)). I kinda want to read the manga now. Episodic character arcs are very digestible to me and I can take it in small portions.

I give it an 8/10. Really like the characters, the music and the animation was good even by Bones' standards. I still can't figure out why any regular person would want to live in this city, though, lol...

Ah. The ost always amazes me. That was one of the reason why I fell in love with Kekkai Sensen. This was one great ending especially the part where the whole Libra fam showed up to save Leo. Im gonna miss this series

I gave season 1 a 10/10 but season two is a colossal jump up. Leo reacting and not thinking in order to protect his sister it really made him feel human and relatable. It was also a GREAT character growth moment. He had no clue the others where coming back so in his mind he had to beat this monster on his own. Not to mention how much Sonic helped in the previous episode. And the speech Klous gave on top of the hint of Whites spirit landing on Leos hand was so emotionally driven. Overall both seasons get a 10/10 they are both just done right.

I can't believe there are people saying this season was way better than the first one, the first one had personality, this season was just following what the show is and trying to replicate, it lacks the spice that made the first season truly unique.

It's not that it's bad(or terrible) and i'm not saying you can't like this season more, but calling it better is just a disservice for what the first season is.
