It’s finally time. Yep, after three months of waiting for it, the finale of Kekkai Sensen aired on TV, allowing me to finally talk about this series’ final two episodes. Really, I would complain about the delay, but honestly these final two episodes are so amazing that I find it hard to care. The show may have left me bated on a cliffhanger for months, but when I see something this, well, perfect, I can’t help but forgive it for all its transgressions.

I’m not joking when I say this show is so impressive that I think it has the potential to become a classic up there with the likes of Cowboy Bebop and other anime classics of Adult Swim fame. You think I’m joking right, well I’m not. Not only is Kekkai Sensen one of the most visually impressive action spectacles I’ve seen in recent years, but it also has an emotionally interesting story that could potentially put some substance behind the enjoyable presentation. Kekkai Sensen is really that good! Continue reading
