Kekkai Sensen episode 04

I am running out of time and I am therefor forced to keep this post short and simple, which is a shame. This episode was quite interesting and filled with a lot of action. The story might actually have a purpose right now.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 04 (BS11 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.26_[2015.04.28_23.23.01]So Leonardo was using his eyes to their fullest in order to see what the hell was going on. It might cost him his vision if he keeps going like this, but at least he saw what needed to be seen; hundreds of vampires that could very end up taking over the world. It seems that nobody is prepared for any of that, especially since two of Klaus’ best men couldn’t even take down one without his help.

I mean, they thought there were only thirteen of them. Now it seems that there are close to a thousand of them. You cannot battle that kind of army with a small group of “special” people. But then it occurred to me that Leonardo can see the aura of “special” people. He could use that to track down people like them so that they can be recruited. I don’t see any other way for them to fight right now.

Kekkai Sensen episode 03

So last week’s episode contained quite a bit of action. It also contained a little glimpse of what we can expect from the protagonist. It almost seemed as though they wanted to hint us about a possible power-up.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 03 (MX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_07.15_[2015.04.20_23.25.09]So this episode kind of disappointed because I feel as though it didn’t contribute anything. There was no action and not a lot of progress to be very honest. Perhaps I set the bar a little too high when that girl suddenly showed up last week, but they haven’t done anything about that. That girl is still a complete mystery.

Basically, they, and by they I mean Klaus, played a game that resembles chess against some demon overlord in order to gain some information about a game-changing drug that’s known as Angel Scale or something. It was very uneventful, although we did get to see yet another female character that seems to be quite strong. I’ll be looking forward to learning more about those characters.

Kekkai Sensen episode 02

I feel like I am gambling by picking this show to write about. I like the concept, I like the story so far and I like most of the characters. I am known to pick at least one show that looks promising, but turns out to be very disappointing.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_06.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.16]So Leonardo, the boy whose eyes supposedly belong to god and are known for being able to see every single thing, ended up joining a secret organisation known as Libra. This is fine. I can understand that you want to team up with other like-minded people instead of taking on the world on your own. I can also understand the chief’s decision to put Zapp on bodyguard duty to make sure that Leonardo doesn’t get into too much trouble, seeing as he’s their new important asset and hasn’t really gotten any experience in the field yet.

[Ohys-Raws] Kekkai Sensen - 02 (MBS 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_13.54_[2015.04.14_00.09.34]What I cannot understand is how Leonardo, with the use of his special eyes, managed to see how a ghoulish-looking bus disguised itself as a regular delivery bus and how to ghoulish-looking creatures disguised as regular humans managed to abduct Leonardo after they nearly killed Zapp. It feels like we skipped something.

Let’s face it; there’s a lot that we don’t know yet. This story is only making a little sense. I mean, what were those creatures? Why go through all that trouble? How can they hide so damn well in public? Those are all things that need to be explained before things start making a bit more sense. Also, I think those characters look and acted a bit too childish for my taste, but okay…

Hello, what do we have here? This was actually a lot more interesting than I initially thought. I read up on this show and thought that it was going to be one of those childish and predictable shows, but this is nothing like I had imagined.

Kekkai SensenThe artwork is really good. Bones, a studio that’s known for quite a lot of wonderful titles, has been doing a great job by the looks of it. I have seriously very few complains. The characters look great and the level of detail is very nice.

Truth is; I have very little complaints about the story as well. I think it’s a damn shame that Leonardo, that kid, seems physically weak, but other than that it’s actually pretty interesting. What a pleasant surprise!

I can definitely recommend this at this point. The first episode really surprised me. I’m already eagerly awaiting the second episode. I think this action and adventure-filled show will surely keep my entertained during these next few months.

Plot Summary: One day, New York City as we know it vanished overnight into a mysterious fog. Now known as Hellusalem Road, it has become a place where another world beyond imagining is connected to our reality. The balance within this new world is protected by a secret society known as Libra. Leo, a journalist and photographer who arrives in the city, is unexpectedly recruited to join their ranks.
