12 Days of Anime: 2016 Food Edition – Day 1 – Breakfast: Year in Review


A fusion of Western and Japanese breakfasts: Fried egg with bacon, rice, miso soup, pickles, and spinach! (Boku dake ga inai Machi, Episode 8)

It’s always a good idea to start at the beginning, so I thought I’d kick off the 12 Days of anime with the first meal of the day: breakfast.

Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal to eat, so it’s only natural that I just love to see what my favorite anime characters have been starting their days off with… From standard meals like fried eggs, bacon, sausage, and jam on toast, to Japanese style meals involving grilled fish, miso soup, natto (fermented soy beans), and tamagoyaki (rolled eggs), there’s definitely something for everyone!

In this post, I’ve included images from the following series: Sailor Moon Crystal: Death BustersFlying Witch, Boku dake ga inai Machi, Bungou Stray Dogs, Super Lovers, Kiznaiver, Amaama to Inazuma (Sweetness and Lightning), and Flip Flappers.


Hotcakes!! (Flying Witch, episode 11)

I think my favorite breakfasts from 2016 were:

1. The Western and Japanese fusion breakfast from Boku dake ga inai Machi (Erased), episode 8: I love how it’s a cool mix of two cultures… The eggs and bacon borrow from Western breakfasts, while the bowl of rice, pickles, miso soup, and spinach side dish are clearly taken from a more traditional Japanese meal.

2. The hotcakes from Flying Witch, episode 11: My god… these hotcakes look insanely delicious… The syrup, the melting butter, the fluffy hotcake… YUM.

  1. I love your food edition idea for the 12 days of anime and hot cakes nyaaa !! I love hot cross buns for breakfast would be my favorite thing or being so naughty and having a sugary cereal this is so addictive ahaha lol I will be keeping up with your posts XD


  2. I notice that when I watch anime breakfast, it’s a lot of natto if the character isn’t a cook (or doesn’t have someone to cook for him/her). I guess it’s popular and also because it’s an easy, fast, no-cook breakfast.


      • It comes in this little plastic packet thingie, they just rip it open and stir it over rice (the rice cooker always has rice in it if you are Japanese). It’s very fast and convenient. The cheapness is also a factor. Plus, apparently it’s considered a health food and if you mix in a raw egg (???) , it’s like the perfect breakfast, nutritionally speaking. Kinda slimy though, hahaha.
