During a discussion with some friends, one of my friends said that blue exorcist is based on a slush puppy. I know some artists can get creative through a lot of things (elfen lied from a German poem) but I found this one pretty hard to believe.

Hence my question: Is blue exorcist really based on this slush puppy? Or on something else?

    This seems both 1.) obviously wrong and 2.) very difficult to disprove. I very much doubt that there will be any source that says "Blue Exorcist was not based on an ice-slush beverage".

  • @senshin loopers answer might not disagree tot he beverage but does show he based it with other ideals in mind

In an interview with Animenewsnetwork, he said that he was inspired by a Grimm fairy tale:

What were your chief inspirations when creating Blue Exorcist?

Kato: It originally was inspired by a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, where brothers combat monsters. Then, I tried to make the story flip several times, and settled down into a simple structure of demons versus an exorcist.
