[ Edited ]

 

I saw kekkaishi last night and i thought it was awesome.

so i looked it up on wikipedia and the episode list only goes to 52 and the date for it was 2008.

and if anyone knows the rating for the first episode that would help.

By rating for the first episode do you mean the Nielsen rating? If so you're gonna have to wait a week for it.

Kekkaishi aired in a special time slot for children's animation that is called the "golden" time slot. It's where Evangelion, Case Closed, and Inuyasha aired in Japan.

 

Kekkaishi, judging from what I've been able to dig up, did pretty well in Japan. But there were issues with the production team (Kekkaishi had a tendency to take frequent breaks, typified in that a 52-episode show that should premiere once a week ended in February 2008 after beginning in October 2006), and Kekkaishi never kept up with the "golden" counterpart Case Closed (known as Detective Conan in Japan). When the decision was made to run a remake of the astronomically popular Yatterman franchise Kekkaishi was left out in the cold.

 

It's been rumored that Kekkaishi will return in the next couple of years, but those rumors have been unfounded so far.

and thus, the similarities continue. Why do I get the feeling that somewhere down the line I'm gonna have to listen to the constant whining of RKF's wondering when the new eps are coming?

The manga volumes sell pretty well in Japan, so I think further adaptation is certainly possible. But considering the studio was Sunrise, I'm not sure what to think.

canceled? dont think so, they prolly just did 52 eps then ended the anime. japan does that sometimes you got the anime and if you wanna know more you gotta read the manga. sometimes they bring on a new seas. sometimes not. guess it depends on its popularity.

Kekkaishi did better than Naruto so they just did 52 episodes becuase they caught up to the manga.

There are a couple similarities.... lol  I think it would be funny if Yoshimori and Tokine did the whole yelling each others names out when something happens bit.....from Inu.  Although Im sure, not many agree with me.      

 

 

  TOKINE!!!!! :smileyindifferent: ........... Yoshimori!!!!! :smileyindifferent:

If the show caught up to the manga, then are they just waiting for more issues to be made before they make more episodes.?

 a 2 year break seems to long for me.

Because I dont like read, so i'm only gonna watch the show.

My thoughts exactly, this show seems to be very interesting. Exterminators fight by using barriers quite the intriging concept.

It is Sunrise. They did it for Inuyasha. If they wait they could do another one without any filler. There are 14 volumes they haven't adapted so whenever the author is done.

Well, I don't mean in the sense that they're the same show, I mean because of the rumors of it returning (and as we all know, rumors about InuYasha returning flew around for the longest time :smileyindifferent::smileyvery-happy:).  I can't say I've heard rumors of it, but I've also never seen Kekkaishi in its entirety up until about a week ago, so I suppose it's a good reason why I've never looked around.

Bleach wins imo, spend more money on it.

Where did you hear that? Judging by the current chapters in the manga, I can't imagine it will end anytime soon. 

 

Though I suppose anything is possible.
