Students by day, demon hunters by night!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences T.

By night, teenager Yoshimori Sumimura is a "kekkaishi"--a demon-hunter who specializes in creating magical barriers around his prey. By day, Yoshimori's got other demons to battle: an addiction to sweets and a seriously crotchety grandfather! Yoshimori's pretty neighbor and childhood friend, Tokine Yukimura, is also a kekkaishi, but their families are feuding over who is the true practitioner of the art.

Yoshimori is trapped in a formless void! The next day, the founding master of the kekkaishi himself appears at Yoshimori’s home and offers to train him in a unique kekkai style. Is Yoshimori’s visitor friend or foe? And why is he also offering to train the vicious Ogi heir, Shichiro...? Meanwhile, the witch Kakeru plans her revenge...

Read up to volume two now and I'm starting to enjoy it more, although I don't know what I think of the drawing style. The main character doesn't seem... like a main character design. Will try to read more. Read full review
