Summary: By day Koizumi handles herself well at school. She’s polite, punctual, and takes her studies seriously. By night she unleashes an entirely different side of her personality! She loves ramen and is always in search of a tasty bowl. She’s not picky with the ingredients, she is always willing to taste an unconventional dish with unusual additions. She has her favorite restaurants but also continues her search to broaden her ramen knowledge.
The title says it all, Koizumi Loves Ramen. This series gives in-depth explanations to the merit of various ramen dishes, from the basic parts of a normal ramen bowl to unusual ramen that includes ingredients like pineapple. Several classmates attempt to befriend Koizumi by eating ramen with her, where she explains the pros and cons of the ramen they’re consuming. The animation and show itself are nothing groundbreaking, but the explanations of ramen are so involved it merits a watch. Who knew there could be so much complexity to a dish?
You might enjoy this if: You want to learn more about ramen, from the intricacy of the broth to the precision of the noodles. Nothing happens by chance in a perfect ramen dish, it is all carefully planned and carried out.
You might not like it if: You assume the only type of ramen noodles are the cheap kind you buy at the store for 20¢ a package.
Note to the Viewer: Koizumi Loves Ramen is produced by Studio Gokumi, which was founded in 2010 after members of Gonzo’s Studio Number 5 left to start their own company.
