Kekkai Sensen is also known as (Jap.: Kekkai Sensen) is one of the most anticipated animes of recent times. Fans have been calling for more episodes for a while now. The second installment ended back in 2017, yet Studio Bones has not announced the renewal of Kekkai Sensen Season 3. Well, it’s finally time to ask some serious questions about the future of popular anime. Will it ever release? Here’s everything to know.
Kekkai Sensen Season 3 Release Date
Despite the lack of an official renewal, the third season of Blood Blockade Battlefront looks pretty likely. The previous two seasons turned out to be largely successful for the producers of the source material and anime as well. Upon the release of new episodes, Studio Bones sold a large number of DVDs/Blu-rays. Besides, the anime installment also helped in increasing the sales of the manga. Hence, the release of the third season can bring in potential success for the creators.
However, as of now, Kekkai Sensen Season 3 has not been announced yet, and we are yet to see what becomes of the show. That being said, there’s no reason to get discouraged right now, since anime shows are usually renewed within a period of five years and there’s plenty of time left for Kekkai Sensen to be renewed. If things go well, Kekkai Sensen Season 3 release date could fall sometime in 2021 or 2022. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
The first DVD of the series sold 4,784 units during its debut. Meanwhile, the first Blu-ray sold 12,171 units in its first week of release.
The disc release of the second season, entitled “Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond”, is expected to start on February 18, 2021, with the first volume, which will contain the first four episodes in Japanese. As an extra, there is a slipcase, a booklet, art cards, the opening and ending song, an episode guide, and a trailer.
The second season was directed by Shigehito Takayanagi in Studio Bones (Noragami Season 3). The twelve new episodes were broadcast in Japan between October and December 2017.
The 12 episodes of the first season, which ran in Japan in spring 2015 and is already available from KSM Anime, were also produced in Studio Bones. Rie Matsumoto, who was the episode director of the second season and was responsible for the storyboard, directed the film.

Source Material For Kekkai Sensen Season 3
The Kekkai Sensen manga series consists of 10 volumes. The 12-episode first installment of Blood Blockade Battlefront adapted 12 Chapters until Volume 6 of the manga. The remaining volumes were eventually used in the second season. Hence, the studio has exhausted the original manga.
Luckily, despite that, there’s still enough source material left to create another season of the anime. Back in 2015, a direct sequel to the original manga debuted. It is titled Blood Blockade Battlefront or Kekkai Sensen: Back 2 Back. The sequel manga is still in the run and has a total of seven volumes. The latest one released back in December 2019.
Hence, chances are high that the creators may use the Back 2 Back manga series to create Kekkai Sensen Season 3. As soon as they get enough source material, productions for the new season may begin.
