Synopsis

Kekkai Sensen centers around the crime fighting organization "Libra" and their battles in Jerusalem's Lot, formerly known as New York City. Jerusalem's Lot was created in a single night when a portal to the "Beyond" opened, and now it is a paranormal melting pot of monsters, magic, and the everyday mundane city life. It's up to Libra to prevent the horrors of this city from spreading to the outside world.

When mild-mannered Leonard Watch arrives in the city, he's inducted into Libra and things spiral out of control from there.

Pilot serialization ran in Jump SQ from February to April 2009 issues under the title "Kekkai Sensen: Mafuugai Kessha" (血界戦線 ―魔封街結社―), which was later collected in the first volume. Official serialization started next year in Jump SQ.19 Vol.1 (2010/5), and continued until Vol.18, when the magazine was discontinued. Second season, Kekkai Sensen: Back 2 Back, started same year in quarterly Jump SQ.Crown Vol.1.

The series has been published in English as Blood Blockade Battlefront by Dark Horse Manga since September 14, 2011, though the lastest release was the 7th volume on February 24, 2015.

Alright everybody, prepare to read the only review of this manga you're ever going to find. Why's that? Because I'm confident that I may be the only one who actively reads it in the Western Hemisphere. Hopefully that'll now change with the advent of the anime.

Also, if you're looking, no scanlations exist for this, so go out and buy the Dark Horse releases if you want to read it in English (highly recommended)

We're gonna start by talking about the author. Yasuhiro Nightow is one of very few manga authors who is almost completely incomparable in style and content. Nightow is an Americanaphile. He loves read more

Blood Blockade Battlefront (Also known as Kekkai Sensen) is a manga about some guy named Leonard Watch who is dragged into the city of Jerusalem's Lot and he has acquired the Eye of The Gods. Basically he can see stuff regular people or monsters can't. He is also dragged into the group Libra, which is basically a group of supernatural humans and monsters who take care of monsters the cops can't. Kekkai Sensen is the story of Leonard and his association with Libra.

Okay now here comes the criticism. The first problem I have with Kekkai Sensen is Leo's Eye of The Gods. He always read more

After the success of the manga (specially the anime), the author is just like the old time-make the sequel of it. But this manga is different, it has so many news and make me hope every episodes (even more than one piece, my hero academia, haikyuu!!). The anime is masterpiece! Athought the screenplay was changed more or less). The art maybe don't suitable for some people, but the story and character are great, their personality are the best; the comedies are funny and subtle,... i think this is the good manga and most of all: ANIME KEKKAI SENSEN SEASON 2, PRAY FOR IT EVERY SECOND!!! read more
