Blood Blockade Battlefront Returns For Season Two In 2017

Blood Blockade Battlefront was the sleeper hit Anime of 2015 that, despite not garnering a mainstream level of popularity, is a series much loved by most Anime fans across the globe. Strange, right? Well it’s no Attack On Titan, nor is it One-Punch Man, but for those “in the know” it was one of the hottest Anime titles of the year. Based on a Manga by Trigun creator Yasuhiro Nightow, B3, as it was shortened to, centred around a supernatural defence agency located in the remains of New York after a devastating catastrophe of God-like proportions. Diverting from the source material, B3 featured an original ending that seemed to me as though it was pretty final, but it has just been unofficially revealed that a second season is planned for a 2017 release under the altered name “Blood Blockade Battlefront and Beyond“. This is unofficial because the magazine this will appear in has yet to be released, but an early edition of the so far unnamed publication has been acquired and pictures of it have …

The Blood Blockade Battlefront Anime Is Finally Coming To An End

Hey, do you guys and girls remember that Anime Blood Blockade Battlefront? The adaptation of Yasuhiro Nightow’s hit Manga series? Yeah, yeah, it had the young guy with the glowing eyes, and the sock monkey. You know which Anime I’m talking about, and I’m sure you know that it’s final episode has been on delay for quite a while now. Everyone was incredibly excited to see the end of Blood Blockade Battlefront and, considering just how damn good an Anime it is, it’s very much justified…then the depression set in, after hearing that the final episode would be put on delay indefinitely. We waited, and waited, and waited some more, but the episode never came. The Blood Blockade Battlefront production staff ensured us that it will be long worth the wait, with a double-length episode and a finale to blow our heads off…but it felt like an eternity away. Some of us came to believe that we’d never bare witness to the final episode of this masterpiece of an Anime. Some even thought it was …

First Thoughts: “Blood Blockade Battlefront” – Get That Monkey!

Where the hell do I start with this Anime? You know, reader, I’ve been thinking about this article for a while now but I can’t seem to figure out just what it is that I should write about when it comes to the new Anime adaptation of Yasuhiro Nightow’s Blood Blockade Battlefront which, incase you have no information on this series at all, is also known as B3. Now as soon as you read Yasuhiro Nightow you probably think Trigun. For you to do so wouldn’t be unjustified but for your own sake and for the sake of this new series…I’d toss that thought out the bloody window. This is not Trigun.

Let’s talk about the story for just a little bit: Johnny Landis…I mean, Leonardo Watch is a young man who’s just moved to the city formerly known as New York. A few years back, this huge portal to another world opened up …

An Anime Adaptation Of “Blood Blockade Battlefront” Is On The way

Reader, have you heard of a Manga/Anime series called ‘Trigun’? Surely you have! It’s the story of a young gunfighter with a mysterious past created by the Mangaka genius Yasuhiro Nightow. I can’t imagine any Anime fan not knowing what ‘Trigun’ is or who Yasuhiro Nightow is but for those of you who don’t: He’s a legend of the industry and ‘Trigun’ is a series that will go down in history as being one of the greatest examples of old-school Anime/Manga brilliance. Did you know, perhaps, that Mr. Nightow has a more recent Manga series that is currently being released around the world? It’s a little series that goes by the name ‘Blood Blockade Battlefront’ or ‘B3’. ‘B3’ takes place in a world where the inhabitants of our world and those that lurk in the darkness of the underworld are forced to live together in some form of harmony due to a devastating event that took place before the start of the series.
