Anime review: Kekkai Sensen

I don’t know how popular this one is or whatever. I watched the anime and didn’t read the manga. The ending song, sugar song to bitter step, is a popular one. I’ve seen it covered quite a few times. I have heard of some of the voice actors before. What I’ve seen, it’s high rated. It also deserves it. So good luck with reading.


Supersonic monkeys, vampires, talking fishmen, and all sorts of different supernatural monsters living alongside humans—this has been part of daily life in Hellsalem’s Lot, formerly known as New York City, for some time now. When a gateway between Earth

and the Beyond opened three years ago, New Yorkers and creatures from the other dimension alike were trapped in an impenetrable bubble and were forced to live together. Libra is a secret organization composed of eccentrics and superhumans, tasked with keeping order in the city and making sure that chaos doesn’t spread to the rest of the world.

Pursuing photography as a hobby, Leonardo Watch is living a normal life with his parents and sister. But when he obtains the “All-seeing Eyes of the Gods” at the expense of his sister’s eyesight, he goes to Hellsalem’s Lot in order to help her by finding answers about the mysterious powers he received. He soon runs into Libra, and when Leo unexpectedly joins their ranks, he gets more than what he bargained for. Kekkai Sensen follows Leo’s misadventures in the strangest place on Earth with his equally strange comrades—as the ordinary boy unwittingly sees his life take a turn for the extraordinary.

So I liked this anime. It was with all kinds of things that peak my interest. Originality was good. I saw things that are rarely seen. The art was what people now use the most. There was a story, but I think it could also be amusing if there wasn’t. Overall, it’s good, amused me and I like the art. The plot was also a bit surprising. I would give this an 8/10.

This was it for this week. Sorry if it’s short, but school is starting again and my schedule will be very busy.
