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.

A jumbled mesh of ideas elevated by Matsumoto’s directing. Lacks a thematic core/focus of plot/depth of character to develop them properly.


From the creator of Trigun we have the most bizarre mish mash of Aliens, demons, and Super powered New Yorkers for a bloody good time


Show has incredibly awesome style but I wish it had more of a focus. Couldn’t completely get what it was aiming for.


Flashy direction, strong characters, mostly good visuals and a great setting. Anime original story was a bit shaky, episodic stuff is great.


At first I thought it was just trying to hard, but ended up being one of the most diverse and detailed shows yet, in story and animation.


Good soundtrack and excellent OP/ED. Well realised, refreshing and dynamic setting and a likeable protagonist. plots a bit of a mess though.
