Kekkaishi To Air On Adult Swim

By Ishaan . April 3, 2010 . 7:45am


Since its debut, Kekkaishi has been one of the more successful manga series in Japan of late, and in 2007, it won the Shogakukan Manga Award for the shounen category. Soon after, an anime was greenlight and, like the manga, was licensed by Viz Media in North America.


Viz have now licensed the series to Adult Swim. It begins airing in the U.S. on May 29th. For anyone that might be interested, the music for Kekkaishi is composed by Taku Iwasaki, who worked on the fantastic soundtracks for both the original Rurouni Kenshin OVA and Witch Hunter ROBIN.

    If I like this show, I hope Adult Swim won’t air it at 3 am like they did with Code Geass. I was too tired at that time to enjoy the show. :(

  • I haven’t read this manga in a while, maybe I should catch up, it was pretty entertaining. Although I never saw it as an Adult Swim type of show, I hope it’s sucessful

  • I wonder why D.Gray-Man is not on Adult Swim it works there.

    yeah i remember that they were adding it to their line up glad to see it on adult swim

    I feel something like Bakemonogatari would fit better into Adult Swim’s lineup once there is an English version. It’s relatively short and has the type of atmosphere and mood that would work well for them.

    Sounds cool, though I want a Blu-ray release over here. I really liked Witch Hunter Robin but you said the same gperson did the music, not the show. Either way checking out Anime is about all Adult Swim is good for so Im glad they are adding something new to the line up.
