Leonardo Watch and the gang are returning! 2017 is shaping up to be a hell of a good year for return anime series. Blood Blockade Battlefront was one of my favorite new series and the world it built was incredibly fun. The characters were larger than life too. I always felt there was so much more to tell, so much we didn’t learn yet. Glad to see in 2017 that it will be returning. Check out the new key art and PV below.
Blood Blockade Battlefront & BEYOND is directed by Shigehito Takayanagi and features animation by Bones. Funimation currently licenses the first season in North America and it is expected they will snag the license for dubbing the new series in 2017. With the new partnership between Crunchyroll and Funimation I fully expect you will see Blood Blockade Battlefront on CR as well. Here is a short synopsis for the series:
“A breach between Earth and the netherworlds has opened up over the city of New York, trapping New Yorkers and creatures from other dimensions in an impenetrable bubble. They’ve lived together for years, in a world of crazy crime sci-fi sensibilities. Now someone is threatening to sever the bubble, and a group of stylish superhumans is working to keep it from happening.”
