THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lol, Leo and Zapp hanging out and eating burgers. This is classic.

I liked how it explores Hellsalem's society and the relationships connections that Leo has developed over his stay here. Leo's friend Nej is quite amusing to watch imo for his appetite too. Pretty entertaining episode. Too bad there are also some cruel people in their society as well. Poor Leo D:. I'm just glad no one died this episode because those punks that were beating up Nej pissed me off.

Great music this week, like usual. I'm curious to see Black's role in this; if that's his real name that is.

That was a really sweet ep :D

Kinda sad how Leo and Nej forgot all the memories of the time they spent together :(
And that beating with the bat was brutal >~<

Nej was really cute for some reason :3 Was that Chopper's VA?

The end was nice too. Leo finally finds out Black is White's brother. I'm pretty sure Black is just acting like they've never met though right? O_o?

Leo's "Ur sister's always been taking care of me...or actually not" and her reaction was funny XD

Man, that was quite an emotional episode, I didn't expect it after last week's.

I'm glad this show can handle both the comedy and the drama, and it was nice to see a bit more world building regarding the relationship between humans and the creatures from the netherwrold.

Solid episode 4/5

Nej is such a lovable guy.....How could anyone hurt him and not feel bad about it TwT Man The feels during those final scenes were strong....I really hated those guys that kept knocking Nej down

Was a pretty fun episode and I'm happy to see that Leo and Nej essential are able to start over now....The ending scene was cool too because I was wondering what the blonde hair boy had to do with the ghost girl and now we know that they're siblings

Looking forward to seeing how this relationship with Leo, White and Black will turn out

This was a mountain of feels!

Nej and Leo being all exuberant, posing and eating, having a blast from the most simplest of things. The soundtrack too was implemented well.

Being more than willing to take a beating for a friend and despite not wanting to forget, it was quite the touching scene how he instantly released the spores to protect Leo like that.

Going back to Nej's memories, the end at how Leo cried over the burgers... there are some things that aren't limited by memory. The amount of warmth and laughter they shared. Though a short time, the two really had an unbreakable bond. I'm more than happy to see the two meet again.

Probably the best episode yet for me!

Lovely episode. Leo and Nej became the best of friends from the start of that one meeting. Quite cruel to show them so distraught for each other in the truck scene. And Black is finally introduced ― I'm particularly interested in his role.

It's probably not a good thing that the only things I ever find interesting about a BBB episode are the last two or so minutes, right?

A better love story than twilight, burgers is a catalyst to true love. Burger Spores Mushroom Man looks like Vagineer.

Lol he put on his mask when he saw his friend piss his pants.

The whole episode was really sweet, but the two friends lost all their memories together, and of course he doesn't remember his mother either.

This is the best anime for me this Season. I rarely sit through Openings and Endings, but i just enjoy it so much in this one.
Felt bad for Nej when he got beat up with the bat ;(
4/5 episode for me.

Ah, the power of burgers and their ability to bring even the most diverse of people together. A lovely, chill episode with some great music.
Not much else to say really other than I'm glad Leo is getting a bit more of the spotlight and that the plot is still developing slowly, hopefully we get some decent focus before it's too late. Next week looks fun though.

Such a great episode. The time that Nej and Leo lost to amnesia comes around again, it seems. And those two criminals won't remember Nej so they'll be back to square one and trying to figure out how to repay their debt.

Wasn't expecting to find Black in White's room. They're siblings. Hadn't made that connection. Although Black feigned not remembering Leo he knows full well who Leo is from their meeting earlier on the train.

Really appreciated the Johnny Rockets reference as Jack Rockets. Each episode has been great and this one was emotional without the feeling of it being forced. Very well done. Think I'm gunna go get Johnny Rockets for dinner tonight this episode got me craving. I don't know exactly why maybe it's a combination of the overall look of the city as well as the music but this show makes me think about Cowboy Bebop all the time.

I think last episode (Ep 5) was perfect, but this week is even better. It really brings me to tears.
The OST played at the scene where Leo and Nej eating together, is really good, bravo Taisei Iwasaki.

And I think the director really knows how to bring out the personality of a character.

The two guy at this episode, at first I think the fat guy is really an asshole, he beats up the innocent Nej til he explodes, even though the other guy trying to stop him. But later, the other guy turnout to be the real asshole, he calmly bring out a plan to use Nej as a tool to gets money, and even planned to kill Leo. (I really like the hidden dark message from those two characters, the guy who looks nice aren't always like what you think.)

Don't forget to Don't forget me. This is the best title so far. Really fits the content.
And Nej is a real hero. He choose to lose his memories with Leo, in order to save him. ;__;

Well played, probably the best episode I've seen in a while. It's just like watching chroniko's episode from Kaiba, it really brought me to tears.

Well, this episode showed us that even without Libra, cool action, and fast paced story, Kekkai Sensen still can stand out to be a good, relaxing and even heart warming anime.

So I think this episode fits my taste more than episode 5. But that's just my opinion.

Since episode 4, this anime is completely off the rails with awesomeness tbh. Really great stuff.

White's "Love and Peace" was so cute and funny! I repeated that part like 6 times.

Dem feels.. ;_; Leo and Nej only met for a short period of time yet it was really sad when they both ended up forgetting about each other.

Black totally remembers Leo, doesn't he? This guy is bad news.. His scheme with Femt is probably on the way.

Good episode. Klaus humming Vivaldi's Four Seasons in the PV was pretty hilarious!

ok episode a bit boring and that only part that was to do with the main story was the last 60 seconds which means that this was a filler episode.
i did not like that fact that Leonardo was watching one of his friends getting beaten to a pulp with bats and thought that doing little to nothing to help after his beating was enough. it he cared enough he would have done something sooner and something better than what he did.
but in all ok episode 3/5

The episode was pretty chill until it took a bit darker turn halfway through. Kind of feel bad for both Leo and Nej after they lost their memories of each other.

Fantastic everything as usual. "Black"s appearance at the end made my heart skip a beat though. I really do wonder about White's role in all this. Had a giant grin on my face when she said "Love and peace" :D

Same here ;_; Who knew Kekkai Sensen could make me cry. Despite there being many stories about meeting and forgetting, I think this was still a really well directed episode (not entirely surprising given how much I cried in Kyousougiga). It was simple, fun, and touching. "That's funny...are cheeseburgers supposed to bring me to tears like this?"

Also, White's brother is so sketch...

I absolutly loved this episode, it was a great change of pace and allowed us to see the more daily lives hellsam's lot as well as tell a pretty touching story to boot. Also every new episode of this show keeps impressing me with its ost

But then on the other hand knowing the series is already halfway over is still incredibly disappointing, how id kill for this to be a 2 cour series, and i feel like they'd of announced a split cour by now if it were one so thats out

YEEEEES, maximum respect for bones putting that in there, you can really tell they are passionate about this series as well as respectful to nightow, i also love how you can spot nightow's name in the opening theme as the name of resturaunts
