Review: Kekkaishi

Plot Summary: Sumimura Yoshimori, a 14-year-old junior high school boy, is a descendant of Kekkaishi, or an exterminator of monsters He is vying for the heir to the family with Yumikura Tokine. Tokine is older than him, and she is his childhood friend as well as his rival Kekkaishi. To save people from the crises, and to make himself stronger, Yoshimori fights against monsters tonight, too.

This anime took me a little while, I expected to be a little boring from the start of it. I tend to want to finish anime even though it wasn’t the most interesting, but this turned out to be a great anime. Yoshimori is the legitimate successor of the Kekkaishi but he has no idea what that really means. They are protecting a land called Karasumori which has powers unknown to both the Kekkaishi and the Ayakashi (Demons), the Kekkaishi just want to stop the Ayakashi. The first couple of episodes are a bit boring, but as time progresses it really picks up and I flew through the last 25 episodes.

  1. have you watched Full Metal Alchemist? its a decent anime with a good plot.

    i would also recommend Avatar-The last air bender. it is an american animation (so its not officially an anime), but the artwork is similar. the story line too is good with strong character development.

  2. @Razaldo – I have watched Full Metal Alchemist, season 2 just started, I’m going to wait until a few episodes pile up before starting to watch it, I want to finish Gundam 00 S2 first. I know Avatar is a good anime, but since I have so many others to follow first, I think I will get around to it!

  3. does this anime finish ? i think i saw until episode 51 or 52 but it seemed to just stop … just like that other one
