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.

_________________________________________________

So with the first fansub of the anime available now; I thought I'd help create some awareness of this brilliant shounen manga.

It's pretty popular in Japan right now, where its at it's 14th volume atm. But most people outside of Japan hardly know about it.
Viz licensed this pretty early on (they probably saw its potential very soon), so just when the scanlations were being released Snoopycool already had to drop it. (btw Viz is at volume 7 now, and its a great release)

I honestly cant recommend this manga enough. If people say Reborn is a hidden gem in Jump thats underappreciated; Kekkaishi is Shonen Sunday's diamond in the rough.
If you're not swept away by it right away, that's prefectly normal. I mean, what shounen series does start off spectacular?
But either way, give it some time, and forget what you know about most shounen-cliché's. It is totally worth committing to, I give you my word.
The theme might have been done several times before; demon-hunting and all that. But the approach is so refreshing in that it really takes the time to fully establish the world of Kekkaishi and what the characters are all about; before getting into the really serious stuff. You might think its not going anywhere in the first 4-5ish volumes. But believe me, when you've read beyond that you'll see that there was a LOT of foreshadowing. You just dont know about it yet ;)

I personally adore the character interaction in this manga. They're all very colourful in their own way and Yoshimori and his gramps are just a hoot.
Ps. Castle cakes ftw!

I hope you check it out, and see in it what I do.
And I'm usually not crazy about seeing shounen series adapted into anime. But the anime of Kekkaishi is SUPERB.

Finally! Someone noticed about this manga. A very good plot and character development makes it one of my favourites. You should try it if you haven't.

I've only read up to chapter 15 and when I checked an anime blog that reviews the Kekkaishi anime today, it appears that the latest epsiode is also in the point where I am. Might check on the fansub later ;)

OT:
Reborn a hidden gem? Haven't read it but because it has an anime, it might be worth reading/watching after I read all 260 HxH chapters, Kekkaishi and King of Thorns this coming Christmas break. And I also promised myself to check Mushishi.

Kekkaishi is great ^^ i wish i could get the raw anime without using BT seeing that i can't use BT....so i haven't seen the anime yet in the short run. But the manga is really entertaining though! i love the artwork too! Tanabe has definatly got something going for himself.

I'm bumpin this because this forum needs more Kekkaishi love lol. I'm only up to what has been released by Viz but the manga is so good. The anime adaption is done very well also (KEFI and Yoroshiku have the first couple episodes out.) And it seems everything KEFI picks up is good so everyone should give either the manga or anime a shot. Anyone have a link for the japanese manga covers passed volume 9?

Kyuzo
January 06, 2007, 06:20 PM
...buy them online. All I'm saying is it seems useless for a group to put forward the time and effort to scanlate the series unless a) they're really fast and can get up to date or way ahead of the english releases or b) the english releases are insufficient. The group that scans it now is behind the english release and is slow so I think they're wasting their time. It's easier for a group that scans in english releases (like the ones that do RAVE and Blade of the Immortal) to just scan them in. I buy it and can read japanese so I could care less, I'm just making the point.

Just discovered this great Manga a few days ago and catched up with both - the scanlations and the fansub - in one night <3333

It's a awesome shounen and i can only second the words from the first page of this thread:


If people say Reborn is a hidden gem in Jump thats underappreciated; Kekkaishi is Shonen Sunday's diamond in the rough.
If you're not swept away by it right away, that's prefectly normal. I mean, what shounen series does start off spectacular?
But either way, give it some time, and forget what you know about most shounen-clich&#233;'s. It is totally worth committing to, I give you my word.


Yes, it is totally worth to try this one. I absolutly don't get why it doesn't get more attention! It's may starting a bit slow for our action freaks, but it has a great deep plot development, sympathic characters, great art, lots of interessting fights and wonderful romantic moments, I wanna more ;____;

The anime differs a bit from the manga. They change a lot little details, the plot order and also some characters doing stuff that was done by others in the manga. They stretch the chapters and add lots of small things as well - absolutly not bad at all, IMHO.
Usually I dislike it when the anime producers go their own ways but in this case they stay true to the main line and it's just fun to watch all the extras they put in. Besides animation, OST and seiyuu are just perfect!

Thumbs up for this great Shounen! :thumbs

That has to do with that guy from Urukai saying they'll start scanlating at Volume 9 because Viz has published up untill 8 according to him. Which isn't true; THAT'S why I said it.


Also, it has to do with a little thing called respect for the author, and supporting them.

Hello!
Is there any website to download chapter 184 and 185 ?
Well, you can download it from www.urakai.com.

Well, I began to read this manga and I foud it pretty good and original. I have a huge doubt : why people are so slow at scanlating it? I don't want to criticize anyone, but it's a fact that even the fansubber are at a better point of the story than the english scanlators, so if somebody wants to follow the story in a resonable amount of time should either learn Japanese or watch the anima!!! I mean, there are A HUNDRED chapters between the last english scan and the last raw!!! Well, the translators don't have any fault, but I would like to ask why there are three or four groups scanlating Bleavh or Naruto (thay I read) with almost the same quality and almost none who works on Kekkaishi? I really son't want this manga to end up like Shaman King, Yu Yu Hakusho or Rava Master: these mangas are ended and even their anime are already finished, the only thing left is to translate the remaonong raws. The only thing that I would like to see is a bit of cooperation: why for some manga there are five groups working and producing five scans that look almost identical, while other manga, even if they are popular (like Kekkaishi) are in this pitiful situation?

Minna-scan has released over a volume's worth of chapters, in the span of less than a month. We're working on it.

If anyone would like to help, then you're free to do so :P Just PM me!

I just got vol 10 and I have a question...
Is Gen really dead?
He had such a great death scene...but... I don't really trust Tanabe-sensei to go through with it -_-; especially after what happened with Sumimura-grandpa's friend, whatsisname, who was a relatively minor character compared with Gen. In that case I felt it was such a cop-out.

Don't get me wrong - I think that it would be a MUCH better story overall if Gen was permanently dead. but the cynical part of me is saying "aww, this is a shonen manga and nobody really dies for real."

Well, now it seems that he can use that kind of "aura" thing that surrounds him and protect him. I didn't understand what are the true intentions of that lady fox, it seems like she is in captivity, because she helped him, after all. Maybe she wants the palace to be destroied. However, I hope that soon we will be able to see something more about Yoshimori's true powers: after all he is supposed to be some kind of genius...

Luckas

The fox lady isn't really in captivity, she should be the more powerful demon of that group, a power so big that she created unconsciously the castle. But now she is sick, so the group is looking for a source of power which should cure her.

hi everyone!
i really like kekkaishi.its storyline,artwork and character development are great!

and it is a pity that the scanlations are quite slow. so,i tried to download the raw,but it`s really hard since i don`t understand japanese :( .i wish i could help,but unfortunately i don`t have any experiences in doing either a translation nor scanlation.

btw, why don`t we discuss a bit about this wonderful manga? who is your favourite character? mine would be masamori. he`s so matured and skillful despite his young age and i really like the fact that he`s actually care for yoshimori although it`s obvious that he`s kinda jealous of him since yoshi is the heir.

so,what about you? :amuse

I agree with people here. :tem

Kekkaishi is an amazing work that deserved to be widely translated like other shounen works like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, and yet the English scanlations are so far behind.

I can read raws and Chinese scans so I will devote myself to work as a translator for this lovely work for my appreciation to Tanabe sensei and to everyone who love Kekkaishi. I read until chapter 204 which is the current chapter so whenever the latest chapter is released, I will post the translation.

On the same time, I will be posting chapter 138 since the English scanlation from Franky House which is the fastest stop at here.

This work needs more love so Kekkaishi will be my main focus for my translation works.:tem

I always like Yoshi because well, he is really adorable and extremely kind-hearted. He changes and improves so much in the series. The main character usually would not be my favourite character but this works differently.

What would be really cool is to get better raws for volumes 12 and 13, their quality suck a lot, volume 12's lineart is all screwed up and volume 13 is blurry as hell, I know this isn't really the right place to request raws but I'll do it anyway, would be nice if someone could rescan volume 12 and 13, doesn't matter which language since the original 12 and 13 can still be used to translate.

Other than that, mark your calendars, april 22 will be an important day for kekkaishi, won't get any release from us but something good will happen :D

Gonna say it again, volume 12 and 13 rescan please :) Of the two volume 13 is the most important of the two

Do you have those, Athena?

XP It's not that we're ignoring you, it's that we're hoping to go in chronological order. (Okay, so I'm not affliated with Minna-scan, but you get the idea...)

skeith20, would it be okay to use Urakai's RAWs?...I mean, that LQ Lazy Scanlation group is, and....I dunno if it's actually okay or not, but Urakai's scanlation's are pretty good (a heck of a lot better than Lazy Scanlations >>)

skeith20
April 22, 2008, 06:20 PM
Actually, pretty much everyone who currently scanlate kekkaishi use the same raws as far as I know and those found on urakai scan are those very same raws. The problem is volume 12 and 13 are of very poor quality as far as tanko scans go (probably scanner defects or poor calibration or simply crappy scanner (the word scanner here is used to speak of the electronic device, not the person doing the scanning :P))

Here, let me show examples of 12, 13 and a good quality raw

Volume 12 : http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/4719/kekkaishiv12177ax9.jpg
Volume 13 : http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/2198/kekkaishiv13013kx9.jpg
Good quality : http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/271/kekkaishiv11044tk5.jpg

volume 12 as you can see as smudgy black and whites which aren't too problematic, the real problem is a little more subtle than 13, the lineart is all screwed up from pages to page to differing level.

volume 13, if you compare with the good quality scan you can see that the image is all blurry, your especially going
to notice it in grays like yoshimori's "aura" which is an incomplete zekkai for those who read up to there or kaguro in the bottom right panel. Although it's easiest to notice blurriness with the grays, the real problem lies with the lineart which gets less defined as it should be

Toboe LoneWolf
April 23, 2008, 03:31 AM
Well, they're certainly a lot better than raws straight from the WSJ magazine, and groups can make HQ scans out of those. Honestly I can't tell the difference between vol12/13 and the good quality example; I don't have those "trained eyes." I'm sure it exists, but I can't tell. XP

So, those raws on the Urakai webpage are like...free for any scanlator to use (with credit, of course?) I was thinking of redoing the ones that Lazy Scanlation did and that FrankyHouse hasn't done yet...I'm not super-great, but at least I can put the text in better than Lazy Scanlations. XP

Yes, I know. That's why I said they've scanlated "UP TO Volume 16." Which at the time, meant the rest of volume 12 through the end of volume 15. And if you search the franky house forums, you can find chapters up to chapter 154, if I'm not mistaken.

And as far as the RAWs go, you can always use whatever you want from Urakai.com. You don't even have to credit us, since no one does anyway. Just about all of them come from us anyway. But we didn't scan them, we don't hold the right to restrict their use. No one has the right to restrict the use of any RAWs, since 99% of the time, they aren't even the ones that scanned them. They find them already scanned on the net, think they are special, and say "mine, mine, mine!" Childish, really...

Still waiting for another big fight, though :( The tornado dude was pretty cool and all, but the fight was way too short. It did showcase the versatility of the keepers and all, but I would still have liked to see a bit more...

Well some chapters have been released and I like the pace how the story is evolving. Then again, there's so many secrets and mysteries coming to you.

I dunno, i feel like Yoshimori isn't progressing enough. He's still not able to do stuff like the triple kekkai or he's not really showing progress in his combat ability. It's like he's still only as good as he got from practising with the crows.

Dude, he knows the friggin zekkai and then there's that white dazzling light-thing that killed that villian what's-his-name-again. He's on completely different level than most chars, if he just learned how to controll his powers more efficiently he would be god.:eyeroll

sabret00the
March 12, 2009, 03:06 PM
I hear where you're both coming from, but check out the the reverse zekkai thing (the one that protects rather than destroys) he's got no closer to controlling that or knowing how to activate it. he still doesn't realise that his life and the schools are linked. i just want him to have a bad arse fight where he completely dominates his enemy.

Well I wonder if the blank box training has to do with Yoshi's feeling about karasumori when things happened. It's kinda strange he wanted a training and after that they try to undo the thing implanted in karasumori. It's hurting hiim even more than last time. Interesting if you ask me

Yes the dialogues was awesome. Yoshi talking with karasumori (or whatever is living in it) was very cool and intriguing. Now I do wonder if the ayakashi not being to control themself is the doing of karasumori and if it can be stopped.

Well, thanks to Rogue Sapphire's translations, heiji-sama's raws, and magicbulletgirl's raws, we're pretty much up to date. All that's left is for 235-240 and 254 to be translated. It seems my prediction that this would be the next long running shonen after Kenichi to be completely caught up was pretty close.

Seems like Yoshimori will be nearly unstoppable once he completes his Musou training, and he's almost there. I can't see there being much left to the series after this. It's kinda strange, because that means there would only really have been two major story arcs the whole series. Everything lately has been leading up to the climax.

Well I think you should watch out with these predictions but everything is possible and it makes a lot of sense, something I like :).

I think the story itself is far from its end. Don't forget there's still a big mistery that interests me a lot. Yoshi's mother in this story. She's has the same symbol like yoshi as being very important in the family. She has shown up once and I expect her to play an important role in the story

I think we're just at the beginning of this shinjiyuuji (or what was it) hunting. I wouldn't even be surprised if one day the god comes out of karasumori and even yoshimori can't stop him from doing it. Don't forget the god is getting impatient and yoshi will have to proof he can make the promise come out.

Pirulito
April 03, 2009, 08:45 AM
The God is a woman who loves Yoshimori and want to take his virginity in a new place. Karasumori is boring for her desires.
Tokine and her will have a catfight. =D

Seriously now, other thing I'm waiting as well is people of Kokubourou returning to the plot. Maybe they can be related with the Shinyuuchi Huntings.

And I pray for Yoshi's mother be a good girl. ^^

I agree. My guess is that Tokimori did something like this with the power of the feudal lord all those years ago, and he is either still alive in there, or he sacraficed himself to trap the power in the ground.

Regarding your earlier post, Yoshimori has incredible potential. If he had a fight where he mastered all of his techniques, what could possibly be left? It would essentially have to mean that the story is over. Also, he's kindof stupid, so that isn't going to happen overnight.

Talking about Huira. This is the most interesting character in kekkaishi that has shown up imo. I am really intrigued by how cold his eyes and look are. Then again I always have the feeling Huira is looking for an answer to his questions. He won't say it explicitely but I have the feeling that being with Yoshi and his household is giving the boy the warmth he needs

he'll definitely play a key roll in their survival,

another thing that bothers me is one (or several ) of the Urakai chiefs that still havent' shown them selfs.
and im not talkin about ougi (cause we all know he;s just a pawn).

the huntings, blaming it on the kekkaishi's and then getting rid of Urakai

is this why yoshi's mother left because she saw all of this coming and is preparing for it?

but then again it could go so many ways .

Sometimes I forget the names. But the urukai member talking with yoshi's older brother is ougi? No? I don't trust her. I think the plan to reorganise the urukai is definitely a plan that'll work in advantage of the villains and their shinyuuchi hunting. Well my guts tell me that.

no thats okuni, im not suspecting her yet( maybe later, but not right now)
ougi ichirou is the big (5 brothers fused into one) wind user that ran away from masamori last time.

Sorry about that. Anyway, I think I found my new favorite character, Yuugami Kiyoderu. Every time he opens his mouth I laugh. And I think chapter 218 is my favorite chapter just for all of the, "Aww how sweet," moments involving Yoshimori and Tokine.

And on a different note, I wonder what the hell Yoshimori's mom is doing. She is obviously insanely strong but what is she trying to accomplish. And when did she start wandering off and leaving home for long periods of time? Was it after Toshimori's birth? But then again, all of Yoshimori's flashbacks never show or mention his mom. So did she just come back home when she wanted to have another kid and then leave after Toshimori's birth? Or was she like this after Masamori's birth?

And speaking of Masamori, I just can't figure that guy out. But man am I enjoying trying. What a great manga Kekkaishi is.

she killed some people(a kekkaishi her partners i think) a while back and had to leave( i think they were working for the leader of urukai she found out something about him and had to leave her family to keep them safe)

with masamori in wreck(can't keep his cool because young ougi killed his prey) and yoshi ready to sell his soul to the devil(made a deal with karasumori) she'll have to come back in time before the battle to slap some sense into them.


And speaking of Masamori, I just can't figure that guy out.
he's suffering from inferiority complex since yoshi's the legitimate successor. he worked hard to become a chief in the urukai and still he's being look down upon by the other members. he can't cope with the pressure and will crack soon might even end up killed by shinigami (young ougi).




Anyway what do you guys think about ougi? Is he really interesting, he's kinda odd but I think he's someone who lacks something. I definitely don't trust him but he seems to be easygoing and it was kinda odd he wanted to talk with tokine
the only difference between him yoshi is that, yoshi desperately wants to protect tokine more than anything. and now shinigami (young ougi) is interested in her as well. if yoshi loses her to shinigami all hell will break loose.

iv'e read up until 253 and still no sign of his land lord (is it possible for karasumori to be his land lord/???)
is yoshis new power too much to handel for hiura or isit gonna be a n interesting fight next time hiura is asked to kill someone?

Not at this moment but it'll be shown later on. My guess is that she'll be the yang where yoshi will be the ying (or the opposite). I believe that where Yoshi will fight in a pure blank state (compare it like the darkness of his clothes, he'll turn his mind in a darkness) and he won't be effected or affected by his surrounding, Tokine will be his eyes on his back (not litteraly but she's that white spot yoshi needs). She might be training on some other state or level that'll perfectly synchronise her with yoshi

The information about the house-keeper is in the previous two/three chapters that have been scanlated. Remember he wanted his housekeeper to be cake-man but it doesn't seem he'll be able to do that. He managed to make a shadow appear but he's trying to work on the finer features and details at present.

Chapter 248 onwards.

i thought it was 'landlord' not 'housekeeper', either way there are plenty of speculation in the onemanga.com forum. so far we have something that looks like Gen, something catlike, something like tokine. and me personally i suggested a crow, dont know why, but i have a crow feeling.

The dog landlord design made me think that it'd be cool if Madarao was somehow involved. He hasn't done nearly enough lately.

the only difference between him yoshi is that, yoshi desperately wants to protect tokine more than anything. and now shinigami (young ougi) is interested in her as well. if yoshi loses her to shinigami all hell will break loose.

iv'e read up until 253 and still no sign of his land lord (is it possible for karasumori to be his land lord/???)
is yoshis new power too much to handel for hiura or isit gonna be a n interesting fight next time hiura is asked to kill someone?

cant wait for new scans

To be honest, it might be hinting towards that, but I'm not really sure since all he asked was about the Kekkaishi's powers. But, it might go like this: Shichirou finds out that Yoshimori's true strength lies in his strong will to protect his cherished people specifically Tokine. so, he might put 2&2 together & figure it out. And who knows, he might even use Masamori's subordinates as bait (I'm hoping it might be Hattori y' know the black wing shooter)

The new raws out, i have no idea what's going on but it looks like Yoshimori is having problems with activating his powers.

Yes I do agree...

Yohsimori needs to get into his blank state but somehow he can't get his attention away from everyone surrounding him. But I do think the last panels we saw of him when watching hiura, might give him the answer to get into musou (or what was it again?) and summon his landlord

i can never get enough of hiura's free form fighting... looking good, he's even protecting karasumori. does this mean he wasn't sent by the commander of urakai( the little brat behind all of this) but by his brother urakai's No.1 seat chief...hmm.

i wonder how karasumori will react to all of this.

sabret00the

I think he has been sent from the Urakai but hasn't been any orders to support this attack so is falling back on his order to help the Kekkaishi protect the land. Obviously the commander feels that there are other threats to the Karasumori than himself. Oh and let's not forget that Ougi is around here somewhere too.

i completely forgot that he was working for the girl (with the{ (+) }in her eyes) ; the commanders maid(well not exactly maid but lets go with it). keep an eye on her she's up to something or working with some1(the commanders brother maybe).

don't forget that a kekkaishi is required for the extracting of the shinchuuki(and they were training a little kid for this + one of the sisters is missing) so there is more to come.

Wasn't her name Suigetsu? At least I thought it was. But yeah, she was the one who gave Hiura his name. Plus that brat who is the one causing all this trouble said that Suigetsu would be the last one he will kill. Plus Hiura is all about following orders so I don't think it is possible for him to be a deceiving them.

Plus with them training kekkaishi, does that mean anyone could become one? Or are they doing something special to artificially create kekkaishi? Maybe they are cloning someone?

its suigetsu im worried about, since the commander has some kind of hold on her she'll try something that'll give her and hiura their freedom.

she also has the same dead eyes as hiura and the rest. but with cross on top giving her some kind of rank or seniority(or freewill/freedom to move around).she also has some parental feelings towards hiura. so i wouldn't be surprised if hiura survived all of this but she died in the process.

before answering the question of how they train the little kids we need to know whether hiura and the are a clone or resurrected. are they cloning a kekkaishi or they resurrecting dead(little kekkaishi kids).my guess would be a clone, since they seem like a new born baby.

How about brainwashing? They can mess with their head and make them lose themselves and their memories.

Something big is deffinately gonna happen. either someones gonna die (which is obvious) or karasumori will rampage. seriously the land is just silent while all this is happening. also that chicks technique destroys the land around karasumori, so that means she is gonna destroy the city and the people, there is no way that can happen, she is deffinately getting metsu'ed. on an unrelated matter is the sumimura mother a fugitive, i cant remember what her story was.

boemshiika
May 07, 2009, 04:46 PM
she was part of the urakai and killed her partner(or was it two of them).i don't think she is mentally challenged or anything, i think she found out something about the urakai she didn't like and had to do it to draw attention away from her family. i hope she shows up in this arc and plays a big roll in it.

The anime ended right after the Kokubourou arc, and I don't think there's been any plans for a continuation yet.

Well chapter 256 was a true page turner. A chapter I enjoyed so much reading that it felt like I didn't start reading it when I ended it.

I do look forward to the upcoming chapters because this is really awesome. If yoshimori wants to play the key role: then he'll have to get rid off all his feelings and thoughts. Go into blank state and summon his landlord. I dare to say tokine's training might be something helpful for yoshimori

Unfortunately, the next couple of chapters will show us how Yoshimori goes emo-overdrive (literally, gay-ucking-tastic~~~ Hiura, Hiura~!! >_> <_<).

There's some actual progress in the latest raw though :D
[hr]
I finally get it. They took parts of his body/powers and divided them up between the top brass of the urakai which reverted him to a toddler and as such, as he's now growing up again, he's going to take revenge.

Can't wait for the new chapter to be translated/scanlated looks like it's going to be awesome his Landlord is a pretty funny looking little thing i was actually expecting something like Karusumori(sp?) being his landlord or something along those lines :P but yeah what you guys think is going to happen know? He going to just Ketsu them and have it all over and done with and onto the actuall extractors or something else going to pop up?

If he can shapeshift then he can probably change his size too, depending on the situation. I like Yoshi's new landlord especially his personality.

@sabret00the

as mentioned by shimano here

http://www.onemanga.com/Kekkaishi/249/14/

landlord's need not to be big coz they're only get in the way :)


@DrunkDragon

about the shapeshift, I'm not quite sure either

http://www.onemanga.com/Kekkaishi/248/07/

from this shimano clearly says that the landlord's form is fixed. Now how did youshimori ever have a non fixed landlord

[hr]
I'm just curious, since I kinda forgot, did Yoshimori ever mastered zekkai ?

DrunkDragon
July 06, 2009, 10:02 PM
Do you mean that kekkai that covers him? The one similar to his brother's? If so I think he has it pretty much down and can use it when ever.

sabret00the
July 07, 2009, 04:20 AM
Zekkai was deemed not for Yoshimori. His actual version of Zekkai is actually opposite to what Zekkai does, however he's yet to master that. He can use Zekkai though.

ddadain
July 07, 2009, 05:12 AM
Wrong.

Yoshimori's Zekkai is a "True" one... his brother's on the other hand is the "warped" one.

:)

And yes, the new RAW is awesome~!

I'm going "kyaa kyaa~~!!" over it -_-

I r Kekkaishi-fanboy XD

And, as I understand it... Yoshi's "landlord" (ughh... I still don't like the translation of it...) doesn't have a fixed shape yet :P Thus the parallel-alternating black and white stripes.

I have a bad feeling that Tokine will have a spout of emo-inferiority complex soon... -_-
