Episode 3

So all this time Lin had been taken advantage of as the money earned that was supposed to be for his mother ended up being confiscated by his boss. Lin showed that guy that while knives don't work against him, a knife pistol is another thing entirely. So now, Lin is out to avenge the one who killed his sister hiring Banba to help him out. In the meantime, there's a case to help out a guy who was framed, and those guys sure work together well as a team. Enoshita sure is a sharp guy seeing through all that with his technology. So with that, the mission is on for Lin to take down Yusuke, the guy who is said to have killed his sister, but before that, Lin will have to deal with his old boss that has caught onto his plan.

Some characters really go far in their quest for revenge....

Seriously though, the guys that hire hitmen to do the dirty work should be ashamed of themselves.

I'm surprised this isn't more popular, as for me it's one of the best anime so far this season. Part confidence heist thriller, part brutal fighting.

Wouldn't surprise me if they're using Lin as the decoy, and use the distraction to murder the mayor's son and frame Reiko to boot.

They already removed all his organs to a safe location -- I think he's OK for now.

With all the layers of intrigue, wicked twists and strong characters, HT Ramens has quickly become my most anticipated show of the season. A great way to end the week.

Hakata Pork Bones Ramens( Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens ) EP 2 Irregular

The show title meaning explained ! I am hooked on it

This has some of most heinous viilans at least for gangstas / the adult version DRRR

So many versions of hitmen / oh the businees cards that show the true ID whenheated up

There is intersting stories (Characters ) that all connect some way or the other

I think Hayashi ( Lin ) wiil come back to Banba especially after Zhang kills his sister

Saito gets rewarded for a hit he didntb do only to end up next to Lin's dead sister whowas probally killled by the mayor's son.

Banba paid Lin his debt money fir Zhang for answering ?? only to find she was set up to die by them ( Zhang )

Lin wakes up and Banba has more Tonkotsu Ramen Lin wants go avnge his sister but Banba will help find the [erson who avtually killed his sister the Fee a 5 year supply of spicy pollock roe

The unknown Niwaka Samurai is quite skilled as the mayor's underworld brokers talk about him The mayors son asks for another woman to toy with

Zhang asks Genzo ( the local ramen chef ) to contact Niwaka for a hit on Lin / Banba

DET Shigematsu goes over the recent murder of Lin's sister with Banba / Lin It looks like Saitoh is the guiltly party except this similiar to two previous cases They think it was a frame-up because Saitoh was stiil in Toyko before and just came to town DET S. asks Banba if Lin is his GF Lin hoed I am a guy and teases Banba more

Lin then meets Enokida the computer hacker ace / tracking master Lin is annoyed so many people visit Banba But Enokida has valuable Infro related to the murder While Lin was recvering he hacked his phone to find anything useful but not much / however he didny come w / o good intel He hacked into the hotels cameras apparently the one in the hallway was supposdely broken but still on the servers

It shows Reiko-San the mayors ( hitwoman )arriving with a very drunk Saitoh

It then shows Ivan ( The Hitman ) Lin killed in Zhang's office wheelin a huge suitcase ( Lins sister inside )

Next is the conservation from the bug Banba planted on Ivan recording Munakata / Reiko talking to the mayors son about getting another girl

The Mayors son is Haruda Yusuke a college student also invovled in other crimes but covered up

Lin has an idea despite Enokida warning if they try to break in security will be fercious

Lin says he will go as thre next girl and asks Banba to be the broker

Bamba goes and sees Genzo ( Niwaka Samurai ) contact He tells Banba him snd Lin have contracts out on them and he has to offer Niwaks the job and Banba says its OK ?

Please don't kill me. That should a repeated saying in this show but everyone is so casual about murder. I like this show even if it is cluttered.

This has been my sleeper hit for the season. It almost passed under my radar.

Episode 4

Lin is in a tight spot with Banba apparently beheaded. But of course, that was all faked as the masked swordsman is Banba, while that head was nothing more than a corpse that Banba bought. Banba sure is showing off his moves there, and using his sword to hit a homer with that bomb was really something. So after all that, they get to Harada, and a beanball by Saito took him down and they forced him to publicly out the truth. Then Lin gets his revenge punching him out, while the video takes down the corrupt mayor. That sure played out nicely like a baseball game where the team walked off with a win.

Next time, Shunsuke appears, and he has some pretty bad history with Banba as the character descriptions say.

Well that all wrapped up rather neatly, should be interesting to see where they go from here. So weird watching all these horrible people acting all normal playing a baseball game, and the one dude was so casual about changing his face. Wouldn't moving be easier?

That was one harsh, emotionally charged showdown. The saving grace is Banba's spicy pollock roe contract, in essence keeping "Lin-Lin" with him for five years. A bit of consolation stability for Lin.

With the way Banba/Niwaka Samurai swung at the explosive pack, he'd probably work well as the cleanup batter.

Definitely an entertaining show even if it's a little too neat and tidy given the premise and subject matter, and even if it's not nearly as "cool" as it seems to think it is (which, I guess, is fitting). Should be interesting to see where things go from now given that we're already at what feels like a logical season/series ending point only a few episodes in.
