Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront) Anime Review

I only watched the first season of Kekkai Sensen, the second was a bit too much for me.

Kekkai Sensen is about a boy called Leonardo Watch who possesses a pair of extraordinary eyes. He lives in a place known as Hellsalem’s Lot, formerly part of NYC.

Hellsalem’s Lot is home to many different creatures, human and alien. And while most just want to lead normal lives, there are some who are bent on causing mass mayhem and destruction.

Leonardo quickly falls into a group of people who each have powers and gifts that help them to keep these troublemakers somewhat in check.

This group is called Libra and they are one of the most dysfunctional “families” ever.

There’s Zapp, a drunkard who is afraid of commitment (his relationships never last more than a night).

Klaus, the leader, is a kind man, but a brutal fighter who doesn’t pull punches. (He’s like the mother of the group)

Steven is a seemingly calm and businesslike man who has known Klaus for a while. (He’s the father of the group 🤣)

And a few others, I’m too lazy to do more. These are just my faves.

Age Rating- 16+

Some hanky-panky type stuff (not bad til the second season), partial nudity, LOTS of cussing, and it’s very violent.

Sub or Dub?

I watched it in both, and both were great.

I do prefer the dub. Mainly because lots of my favorite VAs are in it. Ian Sinclair (Zapp), J. Michael Tatum (Steven), Aaron Dismuke (Leo), Micah Solusod (Black), and Josh Grelle (Femt).

1-10 Would I Recommend?


Would be higher if there wasn’t so much yuck. The plot was great, as were the characters and animation.

Have you seem Kekkai Sensen? What did you think?

If not, did this review pique your interest?

Thanks for reading!
