Yoshimori Sumimura is a Kekkaishi/Demon Exterminator and his rival is Tokine Yumikura (Summary can't be longer).
11 September 2015 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

If you watch it to the end, all 52 episodes, it has a well written plot and has a good clean finished ending. Far too many anime fail to do this.

The 52 episodes are 24 minutes long which includes a opening song and a song that plays during the ending credits. . . Opening song for all episodes is:

"Sha la la - Ayakashi NIGHT" (Sha la la-アヤカシNIGHT-) by Saeka Uura . . Ending song that plays during the ending credits:

#1: "Akai Ito" (赤い糸; "Red String")

by Koshi Inaba

#3: "My Mirai" (マイミライ; "My Future")

*** Summary ***

Yoshimori Sumimura, a 14-year-old junior high school boy and a Kekkaishi/Demon Exterminator, but wants more than anything to be a Patissier/Maker of Western style deserts and sweets.

Yoshimori Sumimura is very bad at using his powers, yet strives to get better and eventually becomes stronger.

The girl, Tokine Yumikura, is few years older than he and much more skilled at using her powers. She is his childhood friend and helped him with using his powers when he was young.

Yoshimori Sumimura is forced to compete with Tokine Yumikura, a girl and also a Kekkaishi/Demon Exterminator. They are competing to become the heir/next leader/next boss of the Sumimura clan. The power will allow him to save his school friends and others from the dangerous the Ayakashi/Youkai/ Demons/Monsters/Ghosts. . .

* Anime BackgroundInforamtion that is VERY helpful to know *

Five hundred years ago, as legend goes, a feudal lord was attacked by demons wanting to retrieve his mysterious inner power to take over the human world. The famous mage, Tokimori Hazama, was called upon, and with his 2 students, managed to save the whole land. But they fell ill for three days, and upon returning to the manor, found everyone inside the house dead, including the lord. The lord's power was also buried with him at the site of the Karasumori manor.

In the present day, Yoshimori Sumimura and Tokine Yukimura, heirs of the clans of Hazama's assistants, became the kekkaishi protecting the land and the power. They use a technique called Kekkai, a form of magical barrier, used to capture and destroy Ayakashi that are drawn to this land. Any demons that come near the power will become stronger and therefore Yoshimori and Tokine are to guard the land from intrusion of the Ayakashi.

But some of the demons form a powerful organization to take over that mysterious power. Yoshimori plans to destroy not only the demons, but also to gain the power to completely save the world from being controlled by demons and seal the power of Karasumori. To do that, he first needs to know what the power actually is, and also strengthen his kekkai skills.

* Good to Know * Tokine's grandmother hates Yoshimori Sumimura's grandfather and the feelings are mutual. His grandfather will have none of Yoshimori becoming anything but a demon killer.

This anime is worth watching, especially for teenagers.
