The first episode is now up. New episodes air every Thursday at 4:30am Pacific: http://www.crunchyroll.com/ms-koizumi-loves-ramen-noodles/episode-1-garlic-with-extra-vegetables-maayu-rich-758815

Episode 1

Ramen is the only thing on Koizumi's mind, and when Yuu finds her lined up at a popular ramen shop waiting for it to open, she finally talks. The way Koizumi eats ramen is really cute, but eating that mountain of topping, not recommended for a beginner. And then Yuu thinks Maayu in Kumamoto-style ramen is read horse oil, and the school doesn't use the authentic stuff. Then it's off to Koenji for some ramen in rich broth, and Yuu tails Koizumi to find this place. At this place, she waits for the ramen to absorb the soup to look like carbonara, and then slurp em' down. Pretty amusing stuff that was even if isn't anything overly substantial.

Episode 1

Yuu has been watching the new transfer student Koizumi and happens to run into her on the way home. She joins her at eating ramen and sees how different she is when she eats ramen. At school the next day Yuu eats with her at lunch and see's how much Koizumi knows about the ingredients that go with ramen. At the end Yuu follows Koizumi to another restaurant even though Koizumi doesn't want her to be there with her.

The first episode was not that bad we see a lot of cute reactions from Yuu and Koizumi. We see how much Koizumi knows about ramen and that Yuu will not take no for a answer and will keep following Koizumi. The other girls hardly got any screen time but the little they did was sure funny. Misa sure is cute being jelly of Koizumi getting the attention from Yuu. Looking forward to the next episode.

It started off generic and annoying, but Koizumi is barely carrying it.

What a passionate ramen lover!

I think the first epsiode was fun with a main character like Koizumi. Would like to know more about her besides the love for ramen. The humor was done well imo with the character expressions.

Fun. I guess I'm a sucker for food oriented shows.

The restaurants are based on real places. The last one this episode was a Tenkaippin shop.

I've read a couple chapters of the manga although that was a while ago. Should be some fun, eating and learning about ramen.

Normally I'm a sucker for food-centric shows. But I'm not sure what annoys me more, the terrible personalities or the constant slurping. It's like they were going for gap-moe, and forgot the moe.

The slurping is authentic, I understand. The personalities are what they are.

Interesting first episode... Still not sold on this. I do think the voices match the characters though very well.

I didn't mind the slurping. I guess I am just so used to it irl now.

I do hope we get some more cgsradt though and that it's not just cold shoulders and random banter with side characters.

Considering the first episode was more or less Yuu going "Behold! The beauteous golden maned ramen eater. Look at those sleek loins, and those strong teeth! I'm going to poke her with this here stick and... WHOA! She's ANGRY! She did not like that, no! Not one bit!"

I think that would have actually given Yuu more character depth than she had in the first episode. It was more "Behold! The beauteous... yadda yadda... I'm talk to it! It gave me the cold shoulder. But it's okay I talked to it! Now I'm gonna stalk and eat ramen with it. It likes ramen! Now I'm gonna talk with it again. It gave the the cold shoulder but it's okay because I ate ramen with it!"

Repeated with all three mini-arcs. This is definitely a show where if you like the very basic genki-girl and ice-queen archetypes, you might enjoy it. Because the show doesn't appear to have much ambition beyond that.
