Kekkai Sense or Blood Blockade Battlefront is a Japanese sci-fi, action anime series based on one of the most popular manga series of the same name. The story follows a young man named Leonardo Watch, a photographer by profession. However, he sacrificed his sister’s eyesight for the “All-Seeing Eyes of the Gods’ by which he can see the evil entities around him. His adventures begin when he becomes a member of a group named Libra. The group fights the evil supernatural beings. Written by Yasuhiro Nightow, the manga began serialization in Jump Square magazine on January 5, 2009. The manga ran for ten volumes and finally concluded on February 19, 2015. Later, Bones studio adapted it as an anime series, which debuted on April 4, 2015. It ran for 12 episodes and ended on October 4, 2015. The second part of the manga titled Blood Blockade Battlefront: Back 2 Back arrived on July 17, 2015. Eight volumes have been published so far, and it is still going on. Bones adopted part 2 of the manga and created Kekkai Sense season 2, which premiered on October 7, 2017. Season 2 also ran for 12 episodes plus one OVA episode and ultimately concluded on December 23, 2017. The anime secured a special place among anime lovers. The fans have shown their love by excellently rating the series. It scored 7.4 out of 10 on IMDB and 7.63 out of 10 on my Anime-planet. All the fans have been eagerly waiting for Kekkai Sensen Season 3 since season 2 concluded. Let’s see the updates about Kekkai Sensen season 3.
Will the Kekkai Sense return for Season 3.
Season 2 concluded on December 23, 2017, and more than three years have passed, and still no words. There is no official announcement regarding the renewal of the series for the third installment. It is a matter of concern for the fans. But do not worry, guys. The gap of 3 years is not the assurance of cancellation of the series. Sometimes, the studios take 4 to 5 years to renew the series. Let see the factors which can indicate the possibility of season 3.
- Revenue generation- Both manga and anime generated quite good revenue for the production company. More than 17000 copies of DVD/Bluray were sold for season 1 and became the 7th most sold anime of Japan. You can check someanything.com for the statistics of copies sold so far. Season 2 also performs incredibly well. So, there is no reason for Bonus studio to discontinue the series.
- Source material – The Kekkai Sensen manga series consists of 10 volumes. We are aware that the anime is based on the manga series. And the bonus studio used 6 out of 10 volumes to create season one. The studio used the rest of the four volumes and 2 volumes out of 8 from part 2 of the manga to produce season 2. So six volumes are still left to create season 3. Therefore, we can say that the studio has sufficient source material to make the third installment.
So there are high chances that the studio renews the series sooner or later.
Moreover, several fans filed online petitions to renew the series for the third installment.
So, I hope Bones or some other studio heed the fans and show a green flag to the series. Let us see further details by imagining season 3 is coming.
The Release date of Kekkai Sensen Season 3. When will it air?
If the series gets the green flag by the end of this year, the production team will take almost 2 years to produce the series. So, I expect that season 3 will arrive somewhere in 2023. Well, the above is just speculation. The global pandemic of coronavirus is still going on. So considering the situation, the series might be delayed. If everything goes well, it can premiere early as well.
Well, we need the word of the studio for surety. So stay tuned till then. We will update here if anything new comes.
As we are aware, there is no announcement for characters of season 2. But, we can not imagine the series without our protagonist. So, the protagonist of the series, Leonardo, voiced by Daisuke Sakaguchi, will return for sure. Other characters who will reprise their respective roles are as follows-
- Rikiya Koyama as Klaus
- Kazuya Nakai as Zapp
- Yu Kobayashi as Chain
- Mitsuru Miyamoto as Steven
- Ai Orikasa as K.K
- Shinya Fukumatsu as Gilbert
- Unsho Ishizuka as Patrick
- Yuma Uchida as Sonic Speed Monkey
You might also meet new characters as well in season 3.
Bones has covered till volume 2 of Blood Blockade Battlefront: Back 2 Back. So the next season’s storyline will be based on the rest of six volumes of the Blood Blockade Battlefront: Back 2 Back. The OVA episode depicted the arrival of new evil entities. Zapp encountered two dangerous sisters. On the other hand, the chain participated in a drinking competition to get the bomb. In the upcoming season, we will see the power-packed fight of chain, Zaap, Leo, and other members of Libra.
The Trailer of Kekkai Sensen Season 3. When will it land?
The showrunners have not given a thumbs up yet. Therefore, the prediction of the release date of the trailer is implausible so far. However, the trailer generally arrives after the production of the series. So, it is certain that it is not coming this year. Since then, enjoy the epic fight from the series here for reminiscence.
Where can we watch Kekkai Sensen Season 3?
The series is available on Netflix, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and amazon prime video.
Bones has presented us with two action-packed seasons. I expect the studio will be back with season 3 soon. So stay tuned for further updates, guys. And do not forget to bookmark this page for updates in Kekkai Sensen Season 3.
