Kekkai Sensen centers around the crime-fighting organization "Libra" and their battles in Hellsalem's Lot, formerly known as New York City. Hellsalem'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 in the same year in new quarterly magazine Jump SQ.Crown.

The series has been published in English as Blood Blockade Battlefront by Dark Horse Manga since September 14, 2011.

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 Leonard Watch, he is dragged into the city of Jerusalem's Lot and has acquired a power called the "Eye of The Gods;" this makes him see things that others can't. Leonard becomes involved with the group Libra which is a group of supernatural humans, as well as monsters, who help non-humans that the "police" cannot.

The first problem I have with Kekkai Sensen is Leo's "Eye of The Gods," he always discovers a new ability with his eyes almost every volume. This makes it seem like the author can't decide what Leo can or read more
