About Blood Blockade Battlefront Blu-ray/DVD

Produced by Studio Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist, Space Dandy, Soul Eater) and created by Trigun writer Yasuhiro Nightow, Blood Blockade Battlefront brings compelling characters and dynamic plotlines together for one unforgettable adventure.

Forced to coexist in a new city known as Salem’s Lot, the shaky peace between humanity and the netherworld creatures is protected by an underground group of super humans known as Libra. When a case of mistaken identity brings not-so-ordinary delivery boy Leonardo Watch face-to-face with this group, he joins their ranks hoping to help prevent the destruction of the world by a group of monsters and madmen lead by a powerful being known as the King of Despair.

Unafraid To Try Anything

by -

Enigma, mystery, adventure, and character development. It's hard for an anime series to try and deliver everything, but Blood Blockade Battlefront really delivers. The episodes take on different tones and moods, but it never feels disjointed. Each step takes you closer to unraveling the mysteries of Salem's Lot and each episode will leave you craving the next.

Two-Fisted Weird Pulp Action-Comedy

by -

This show is welcome break from the otaku-centric/moe series that have been so prevalent in recent memory. Take 'Hellboy' and merge it with urban fantasy anime like 'The Get-Backers' and 'Heat Guy J',and you have some idea of just how much fun this series is. Great characters,solid direction and visuals,with just the right touch of action and comedy to keep the show from becoming what could've been a grim, depressing slog. The fact that New York City has been merged with a Lovecratian extra-dimensional space is part of the series humor,as one sees striking similarities between this version and the real thing. Would make a great 'Savage Worlds' RPG setting,but I digress; 'Blood Blockade Battlefront' is a great watch,a great introduction to anime for your friends who like pulp action horror--don't leave this stone unturned!

Come Visit Hell-Salem's Lot


One of my favorite shows from 2015, this show will make you roll on the floor laughing one scene and make you cry your eyes out another. Would highly recommend for both anime vets and those just starting out. Great in both Japanese and English, you'll find something for everyone in this crazy, beautiful show, and by the end, you'll be begging for season 2.

Can I have a bite of your hamburger?

by -

A wonderfully crazy adventure. It made me think of it being a Hellboy feel mixed with a little Space Dandy. Plenty of action, mystery, romance, and adventure of course.
You'd never think a guy could love a hamburger so much, so touching.
It's something different, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Great series - funny and different!

by -

BBB is a new, and funny jaunt through the world if basically every horrible creature turned up in New York one day and we had to start living around them. Oh, and some folks get powered up or join forces with other critters and people with powers to help get by.

It's a hugely insane ride of funny, violence, magic, action.....and even a little heartache peppered in. The artwork is amazing and the characters are truly superb. IMO the English VAs did an outstanding job as well, but dubbed anime is my personal preference. I did watch with subs as well though and can say both are very, very good.

Overall, BBB is a great series and cranks up to 11 right from jump street!

A favorite of mine

by -

The item came in a single, thick box with a sleeve. There are four disks, two each of the DVD format and the Bluray format and they all have a different set of characters printed on them. The inside of the cover has art of Sonic the monkey with the episode list. It came in great condition.

As to the anime itself--it's a wild story full of action and humor, sometimes lewd humor (comparably tame to many other anime and primarily to do with Zapp). Leo is an excellent protagonist to follow--he is not whiny, he's a good person, and he grows as the story goes on. The characters in general are absolutely a selling point to this series. I honestly can't say there's anyone I dislike. Their quirks, their relationships, their interactions.

Sometimes it seems that the events of the story are all over the place, but it all comes together in the end. If you like your anime with a wild mashup of humor, supernatural shenanigans, and a lot of character chemistry, give it a try.

One of the best shows of 2015

by -

Blood Blockade Battlefront has it all; action, humor, drama, and some good lookin guys and gals. Back that up with excellent animation courtesy of Studio Bones, a great soundtrack, and an excellent English dub from Funimation and you have a recipe for a show that grabs you and never lets go. Funimation's release for the show comes in a very nice looking slipcover and both Blu-ray and DVD formats. Extras are your usual fluff, plus a recap episode. Sadly the OVA that was released a bit after the series is not included. All in all this is an excellent release that I highly recommend.

Flashy But Fun


As a 'Trigun' fan I was curious about this and in terms of the kinda zany humour I was expecting, it really delivers.

Where 'Blood Blockade Battlefront' falls down a little for me is the way the plot threads are handled - there's just too much left to the viewer to infer from knowledge that is probably clear in the manga but absent from the anime.

Still, what it lacked in that department was more than made up by the flashy (and fun) other elements like the battles, creature design, setting and bold characters. Will definitely be seeking out the second series.

What if ALL of NYC was Hell's Kitchen

by -

This is from the same guy who brought us Trigun, and if you liked that then you'll likely jive with this. It shares the same kind of wild action and text-heavy design elements, not to mention it's headfirst approach to world-building. Why explain anything when you can just leap in and observe as you go~
But in a good way. It amuses me most how this version of New York turned into a demonic fusion city is actually still very recognizable as New York.
This is s1, so it's a lot of time spotlighting the characters so we can fall in love with how cool they are. And they're all pretty cool.
