I like an anime that makes me question what I'm watching. This anime did just that. I usually don't jump to judgment by the first episode but I can tell I'm gunna like this one.

While the three segments were very similar, I couldn't help but just love it. I do have a big weakness for food, and ramen right now (in the winter) would be perfect. Koizumi's appetite is rather amazing. A few weeks back, I had tonkatsu ramen and a side of kaarage. I finished the entire meal, but I was K.O.d afterwards. Koizumi looks fine and dandy in comparison.

Pretty enjoyable first episode overall, and I definitely wasn't expecting the shoujo-ai to be there in such full force (which is always a pleasant surprise). I wouldn't say I'm totally sold on it yet but I'll definitely be back next week. My biggest concern right now is the length. The first episode already bordered on going on too long and it feels like this material would fit much more comfortably in a half length or short format instead of full length.

And I'm not sure what the issues are with the slurping. I mean, it's ramen. Slurping is to be expected.

Slurping is very frowned upon in western cuisine. It's just looked on as inevitable in most (all?) eastern cuisines.

eh. With 3 cute girls doing cute things show this season (so far) one probably the most generic . I think it would have worked better as a short series. I can't really get into this one right now. Might come back to it later..

Seems to be a series of shorts. Not sure how a short series changes things.

" I want Ramen..........Ramen " is kinda scary / that slurp was really accenturnared . So it starts

I like when food is taken to the extreme like eating and Koizumi does it well but keeps to herself as the new transfer student and annoys evertbody except Yu who admires her and wants to be her friend

Not too fond of the characters yet, but I love ramen almost as much as the mc in the title so I'll give it a few more episodes.

This one isn't doing it for me at the moment, maybe one more episode.

Guess it doesn't help that I watched this and "A place further than the universe" back to back.

Another food show. Focuses primarily on ramen. And... just watching it makes me hungry! Not to mention, it's pretty fun too. Mainly because of Yuu. I'm sure i will have a good time with this one. Enough said.

So far, I like the part that its quiet informative when it comes to Ramen with all the different ramen and the style and the difference from region to region .

But what I don't like is the short format ,it felt very disjointed and repetitive at the same time . Its almost like they are trying to be similar to Aoyama kun but they don't have a real mini story .

Oh yeah... slurping ramen is a norm but this one the microphone is next to the slurper

Ep 1

Not bad. I wasn't blown away but did find it entertaining enough. I love to have at least one food-centric anime each season that I can eat while watching. I guess I enjoy seeing other people devour delicious looking food and enjoying themselves while I pretend to be fancy with some microwaved leftovers. This'll fit that niche nicely I'd imagine.

Koizumi's little transformation from quiet reserved girl to ramen guzzling maniac is entertaining, but like others have mentioned I have reservations about it lasting an entire season before getting old. I'm willing to bet that when the other girls get a little more screen time it'll help break things up a bit. I definitely am always up for some ramen knowledge though.

So yeah, not bad.

Episode 2

Here comes Misa, and she's a popular girl, or at least that's what others think that they don't think they stand a chance with her. But after seeing Koizumi passing by, Misa has lunch with her and she's being a loudmouth about everything. So right off the bat, Misa is trying the Hokkyoku, the spiciest ramen available. The spiciness really got to her, but Misa still likes it. But seeing Yuu there rather than with a guy, not so much. And then Koizumi has supplementary exams as she's totally failed the test because she opted to go all the way to Tohoku for some ramen at the worst possible time and she slept through the exam all worn out from her trip. As for Jun, she used to love ramen, but for some reason she's not loving it now. After hearing about a special pineapple flavor from Koizumi, she decides to have some of it, and falls in love with ramen again as the reason for her dislike is because it fogs up her glasses. Misa and Jun sure did make nice entrance there, especially with Misa's tsudere antics.

uwa, spooky



Another episode, more ramen eating. Spicy. I will say that if anyone reading this hasn't tried Chorizo, try it out. It's pretty good.
