Beyond the Boundary AU (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
An AU based on the anime, “Beyond the Boundary.” Inspired by art made by @summersnowleopard.
Keith Kogane is the sole survivor of a clan of Spirit World warriors with the power to employ their blood as weapons.
As such, Keith is tasked with hunting down and killing “youmu"—creatures said to be the manifestation of negative human emotions.
One day, while deep in thought on the school roof, Keith comes across Lance Charles McClain, a rare half-breed of youmu in human form. In a panicked state, he plunges his blood saber into him only to realize that he’s an immortal being.
From then on, the two form an impromptu friendship that revolves around Keith constantly trying to kill Lance, in an effort to boost his own wavering confidence as a Spirit World warrior.
Eventually, Lance also manages to convince him to join the Literary Club, which houses two other powerful Spirit World warriors, Tsuyoshi "Hunk” Garret and Katie “Pidge” Holt. As the group’s bond strengthens, however, so does the tenacity of the youmu around them.
Their misadventures will soon turn into a fight for survival as the inevitable release of the most powerful youmu, Beyond the Boundary, approaches.

This anime has literately everything that you could possibly want all jam packed into a wonderful story headed by a great cast of characters. It’s got comedy, it’s got action and it’s even got mystery and Sci-Fi to boot. It’s an enjoyable ride with characters that will grow on you. The main character of the series is a high school student by the name of Akihito Kanbara, who is a half youmu immortal. As if that didn’t make his life strange enough a girl with red rimmed glasses stabs him out of the blue as he tries to stop her from committing what he thinks to be suicide off the school roof. From there the stories of the two begin to intertwine as they attempt to not only better understand each other, but themselves as well.
Each character in this series presents their own brand of humor and their own special way of doing things. When those things come together in an episode it makes for a very enjoyable and memorable experience each and every time. Their personalities seem to clash with one another, but at the same time this is what makes for such a comedic and memorable experience. They each have their own way of handling a situation and they each begin to grow and learn from one another as the story progresses. Not only do you get to learn more about each character as things progress, but you also learn the deeper meaning behind their own actions and thoughts and feelings toward each other. All the characters have their own unique style and make fun of each others corks and mannerisms in their own special way. It’s not often that you get characters on both ends of the spectrum, but in this case Kyoukai no Kanata does a fantastic job of just that.
With all the things that were going on in each episode I was really impressed with the amount of detail that was put into not just the foreground, but the background. It would have been easy to soften up the background during battle scenes, but the animators choose instead to bring out a large amount of detail. The animation is most evident in the transformations of the Youmu and in Mirai Kuriyama’s attacks. The animators had to come up with a weapon that was fully imagined and then create it in a way that it reacted as would be expected in the real world. You see each characters specific fighting style shine through in the animation and their attacks are done in a way that you can clearly differentiate one from the other.
This is a story that will provide lots of action with many laughs and at the same time give you characters that you can’t help but like. This one really exceeded my expectations and I don’t have much bad to say about it. Perhaps the only knock on it for me was the fact that it felt a little rushed at times and probably could have benefited from a few more episodes, but overall it was enjoyable and a good watch.
