I love a good hamburger as much as the next person, and apparently the entire cast of Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront) agrees with me rather strongly, because the amount of hamburgers they consume in this series is borderline obsessive. So, let’s talk fast food, shall we? For Day 6 of the 12 Days of Anime, we’re taking a look at the hamburgers of Kekkai Sensen (Blood Blockade Battlefront)!
But, why hamburgers? And why so obsessively? Is it just because the series takes place in New York City, arguably perceived by many as the most American of cities, and the animators considered the hamburger the most American of meals? Does the original writer just love hamburgers? Did someone on the animation team put them in a some silly joke? Well, whatever the reason may be, I’m not complaining!
I want to particularly mention episode 6, in which Leo befriends a mushroom monster and the two of them get to know each other over hamburgers… It’s silly and touching all at once, and I’d be lying if my eyes were completely dry by the end of the episode… Definitely one of my favorite episodes of this series, and pretty much the only one I remember in any real detail.
So, what do you like on your hamburger?
And, did you also notice all the hamburgers in this anime?
And, because I know you want more hamburgers (who wouldn’t want more?), here are a few extra pictures for you to check out:
Has all this talk of hamburgers made you thirsty? Maybe you want to wash your burger down with a bottle of Blur Moon…?
