The synopsis reminds me of Durarara a bit. Seems interesting.

I think anything 2-cour anime tends to be solid. Hope this one will be 2-cour as well.

I was hoping for anime that takes place in the objectively best island Kyushu, but not this. Not this.

Ah, this is the Baccano/durarara-like novel that media works bunko pushed hard by giving it the top (or was it the second?) spot in their literature prize before, right?
The thing is, readers didn't agree with that at all, saying it wasn't a good novel series.

Oh well, we'll see.

Edit : Yes, first place,電撃小説大賞 , it was in 2013. I thought that was more recent than that tbh. Aaaah, right, I remember now, that same year "boku ga nana fushigi ni natta wake" took second place behind it, indeed. That one is actually good, btw.

When I saw the title, I was hoping this would be about pork ramen, but if it's like durarara then I'm not complaining
