Reminding: Kekkaishi premieres this coming Tuesday, 15 February 2011, at 830PM WIB on Animax Asia.

Yoshimori Sumimura has the skill to form barriers to destroy demons, and he uses this power to protect the peace of a sacred land from numerous foes.
–Animax synopsis

What the Animax synop omits is that Yoshimori's partner in dispatching monsters or Ayakashi is Yukimura Tokine, also a barrier master and a more proficient Houi! Jouso! Ketsu! Metsu! Tenketsu! one at that. So sleep-deprived high school students by day, but agile defenders of their school grounds from demons by night.

The anime is based on Tanabe Yellow's 2007 Shogakukan Manga Award-winning Kekkaishi shounen manga serialized in Shonen Sunday. The series is ongoing; 33 tankoubon will have released in Japan by the 18th of this month. Kekkaishi is licensed for Indonesia by Elex Media, which schedules volume 4 for a 16th February 2011 release.

Sunrise's 52-episode anime adaptation first aired in Japan between October 2006 and February 2008, with seiyuu Yoshino Hiroyuki and Saitou Rie voicing Yoshimori and Tokine. The TV series has one opening theme throughout—Sha la la -Ayakashi NIGHT by Uura Saeka—but four ending songs:

  2. Sekaijyuu Doko wo Sagashitemo (世界中どこを探しても) by Kitahara Aiko (EPS 16-23,39,44)
  3. Mai Mirai (My Future) (マイミライ) by Uura Saeka (EPS 24-30,41)
