Description
By night, junior high student Yoshimori Sumimura is a "kekkaishi"--a demon-hunter who specializes in creating magical barriers around his prey. By day, Yoshimori's got some other demons to battle: an addiction to sweets and a seriously crotchety grandfather! Yoshimori's pretty 16-year-old neighbor and childhood friend, Tokine Yukimura, is also a kekkaishi, but their families are feuding over who is the true practitioner of the art.

Won the 52nd Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

Just like Naruto-- Kekkaishi is a MASTERPIECE

Phenomenal series! I likewise agree in my history of reading manga, Kekkaishi is simply one of the most underrated manga ever. Yoshimori and Tokine are fantastic well developed characters who are easy to route for and at the same time admire for their desire to escape their families' fued and obligation to the Karasumori site. Their are many components of this similar to Naruto but it is surprisingly original. Yoshimori is the typical shounen hero...he shirks responsibilities at times, he is looked at as being a loser and he wields an incredibly amount of power amongst all Kekkaishi. On the other hand, what I like about this series (which places it firmly alongside Naruto in my book as one of the Best Manga of all time) is how it takes it's time in presenting the story and pithcing many genuinely interesting mysteries for the series. Is Yoshimori's brother possessing evil intents? Why do Tokine's and Yoshimori's families hate each other? Where is Yoshimori's mom? What is Gen exactly (ayakashi in general lead to interesting questions much less than the hybrids that are Gen)? What's up with madarao? and lastly, what is the secret of the Karasumori site and what has brought forth this kabal of evil ayakashi? On the Naruto site, there are many haters there...people from around the world who actually are upset that everyone else (non-nerds, non-manga readers) have discovered Naruto and are now discovering Manga. They have tried to attack Naruto as slow and never changing to which they will probably never like Kekkaishi however, I think they will--these are the same people who like One PIece (truly never changing), Bleach (truly horrible storytelling) and Fullmetal Alchemist (slower than naruto and kekkaishi combined). Kekkaishi though for those looking for original concepts, beautiful artwork, awesome battles, and engaging characters with a methodical confident plot will absolutely fall in love with kekkaishi.

Probably not a good story for those who've read many other shounen types..

Pretty good shounen series. Likeable & interesting characters, funny too, solid art & designs, very good foundation, though it's really hard to tell if it'll become great with only 4 volumes of scanlations availabe atm.
Something I'll keep watching. An anime-adaptation could create better awareness of it too.

Average drawing, but boardering on creative I think for the story. It is interesting and funny. Traditional in the cat fights between childhood friends. Cute, and worth a read, but definately nothing spectacular.
