Lol, Yuu wasn't sure how to use that sporks to eat the ramen. Glad to see Koizumi-san joining her to eat.

The episode had the usual comedy gags but I think it was the proper way to close out this show. There's still info dump about ramen as usual. That Betocon ramen looks delicious. Honestly, I'm glad this finale had Yuu interact with Koizumi-san as I feel they have the most entertaining character chemistry. Thanks Yuu for being obsessed with Koizumi-san

Overall, I thought the show was alright. Koizumi's tears were gold.

And so in our finale Koizumi-san "saves" Yuu after she gets stranded in Nagoya while looking for her. Then after a long illness Koizumi-san reunites with her one true love: ramen! Poor Yuu, so long as ramen exists she'll never be #1 in Koizumi-san's heart. But I guess she's probably fine with that. And who knows? Maybe one day they can become the lesbian lovers she so desperately wants them to be. XD You know, I summed up what this show was gonna be after watching the very first episode:
animefan8800 said:
Interesting structure so far, seems like we'll get 2 or 3 segments each episode. The contents on the other hand seem fairly uniform and straightforward. Koizumi orgasms each segment over a different ramen while Yuu orgasms over Koizumi. Well lets see if they can manage to keep it interesting through 12 episodes anyway. XD

and I was more or less correct. But for a show that was pretty one-note in its premise this was surprisingly fun to watch. That cute little jingle in between each segment and the opening and ending themes were nice. And it was a pretty relaxing watch, even if I actually don't really have any interest in ramen. Generous 7 out of 10.

Not bad. Pretty average across the board. The characters were kinda shallow and there wasn’t much to the story... but I liked the ramen! It always looked as tasty as they were trying to convince us it was. I’d trade a mediocre show for lots of food porn any day, especially given how many shows fall into that category.

It must have been really hard for Koizumi to not eat ramen for two weeks while sick. She was very happy after eating some.

Of course Yuu's obsession with Koizomi would lead to her getting lost. You don't give your number to your stalker. You should know that Yuu. Deciding between the spork of the chopsticks is a tough decision. Koizomi just drops in like always out of nowhere and gets overjoyed with the new spork design.

Koizomi texting her one time just Yuu's day, even though it said no the being better friends. Yuu confessing was just the best. Koizomi turns her down so easily too. Got to love those cold yet sweet girls.

Koizomi not eating ramen for two weeks. She had to have been really sick. Those tears of joy when she's re-united with her favorite food. Yuu cannot get enough of her sweet sweet Koizomi-san. Ending with Yuu declaring she's always follow her, and a group walk to eat ramen is a eprfect ending for the show. They even got Koizomi shivering after Yuu made her declaration.

I must say it...
Oosawa Shuu is anime Nakamura Yuuichi xD
Maybe because of hair style and voice, but when I looked at him all I could think was "yeah, he looks like anime fanart of Nakamura-san" xD

I planned to give this series "7", but Yuu's character kinda ruined this series with her creepy obsession about Koizumi.
I know it suppose to be funny, but some moments were really too much for me.
So... only 6/10.

Well... it still good.
Animation was nice.
Seiyuu cast was good.
Most of characters were funny and likeable.

It was good series to learn something more about ramen :)

sincerely I liked the anime, there is no concrete reason for me to have liked it, I just liked to see it, it was an anime that you saw and somehow calmed down, you got on well with life. I liked him as much as I liked Yuru Camp

WTF Yuu has telescopic vision that she can see Koizumi from a great distance?????

Ok so Yuu only has 500 yen or just only 2 dollars, so big deal she could have just ask Jun and Misa to send her some money via Western Union or that cryptocurrency that them Japanese were now using.......

Between a Spoork and chopsticks , Yuu can't use simple common sense as which one to use.....


Seriously after being sick for 2 weeks and being able to eat ramen Koizumi has to be that emotional?????

I see no reason to the hate on Yuu. The show wouldn't exist without her.

The creepier Yuu gets, the funnier it is.

Other than that it would be just a Food catalog with pretty girls doing weird faces on it.

A yandere in love is a terrifying thing to behold.

But Koizumi's love for ramen may just go a level beyond Yuu's love for her...

everyone knows she was heartbroken after 2 weeks without her love, and then got "violated" by the flavor, so yes, you are right :v



i'm a little surprised Koizumi actually texted her, most people would probably throw a "wtf is this?" to her "i'm obsessed with the girl who is obsessed with ramen" lol
anyway, i liked this anime a lot, easily in my top 5 this season (even makibng me think about traveling to other city just to try ramen lmao), and Koizumi is easily an add to my "best girls blog" =D

My thoughts exactly she would never survive without ramen it's a known fact about koizumi san.

Not me to be honest I prefer koizumi x Ramen it's the true pairing.

Holy crap I couldn't agree more I would give this show a seven just because of that damn catchy jingle but yuu is the reason this is a six for me.


A part of me is glad this show is finally over but a part of me is going to miss this show, I was still hoping for yuu to kidnap koizumi san but alas it wasn't meant to be. yuu must have like insane depth perception if she saw koizumi san from like 8 miles away next you'll tell me that yuu can also hear koizumi san from miles away.

An OK finale.

Show was nothing special and had its dull moments, but it definitely wasn't bad either. It was enjoyable for what it was most of the time.

6/10.

The only good stuff was the ramen tbh and maybe times Koizumi ate with anyone other than Yuu. Yuu was so annoying. Interesting that she admitted she has an obsession over Koizumi, i don't remember ever hearing her say that before. Anyway meh show that really it's saving point was ramen. The OP was pretty catchy as well~

Those were weird utensils, but I guess they were super useful. The first part though of this ep was almost like a confession to Koizumi by Yuu, but she got turned down as expected.

The second half with Koizumi sick for 2weeks ( which means without ramen for 2 weeks), seemed like eternity for her judging by the way she cried. I guess even friendship, love or anything could make her love ramen any less, in the end she didn't budge she remained who she is until.

This series was good but hardly any workable plot, just ramen and nothing else. Damn it though it made me love ramen a bit and Koizumi was good as a character probably the reason I continued with it.

6/10.

My ramen porn is over! Looks like Koizumi-san is never going to change.
Not a bad series. If anything it reminded me that I need to eat a lot more ramen (so many flavors I haven't tried).
Oh! and I need to check out the TV series from a few years back.

Ramen... last episode... And it seems Yuu ended up the focus for the last bit as they kind of advance the non-existent Yuu x Koizumi ship... And ummm... they ate ramen... that's it really.

I have to admit, this has been way more fun than I initially thought it would be, enough so that this was one of the animes I looked forward to most this season. The characters are all pretty... crap... but they were entertaining to watch despite their lack of character, Yuu going full Yandere kind of spiced things up a bit though, seeing her in that light changed up my whole perspective on her character and I kind of liked her more for it. There is NOTHING going on here, more than the usual nothing anyway. And it was kind of annoying at times. But again, I did have fun with this, and a lot of it at that. And I learned a whole lot about ramen, lots of stuff I'll probably never use in my life. I'm gonna give it a 7.

Show was not bad. It was just more of the same each week though so it kind of got a bit boring near the end. Personally I failed my goal of eating a different flavour of ramen each week while watching the show. I am a disgrace to Koizumi's honour.

Damn! Yuu has eyes greater range than a telescopic sight of a sniper rifle!
To think that she saw Koizumi-san without mistake! that far! and what's more, on a fast moving train to boot!
LOL Yuu has a dilemma using chopsticks and a spork!
Yuu seems to confess to Koizumi-san about her obsessive affection to her! and she can't believe she finally got her email for all those 12 episodes! lolz!
2nd part was mediocre because of Koizumi-san being absent for 2 weeks long!
So Koizumi-san can cry because of Ramen especially if she hasn't eaten it for 2 long weeks!
Yuu still being a creepy stalker yandere!
4/5.
7/10.

Yuu is so stupid. She just left her bro and cousin without much money left.

Of course, Koizumi doesn't want to give her number to a stalker. Take a hint, Yuu. Interesting to see spork in ramen. After being sick in two weeks Koizumi finally was able to eat Ramen again. Her crying in joy means how much she misses ramen.

It was a fun series. Cute girls eating ramen is a joy to watch. But Yuu is so annoying that it ruins the fun.

This show makes we want to eat Ramen. There's a Japanese ramen shop not too far from here, but I'm poor AF. Hoping that I could eat one someday.

7/10

Yuu's stalker-ness really goes off the charts this episode. The "spork" was really interesting, I bet that would be useful in eating ramen and drinking soup at the same time though. I guess Koizumi's sickness wasn't explained much at all ... except to reinforce her love for ramen when she had her first bowl, luckily alone. Nothing out of the ordinary for the finale I suppose.

I love ramen, which is the main reason I picked this up. This show had some interesting tidbits and information and I really liked seeing all the different types of ramen and methods of eating, preparation, etc. Honestly the visuals were average to below average sometimes, but the show had good music (especially the theme songs), and the characters ... well, Jun and Misa were good, Koizumi was OK, and Yuu was really annoying. Shame, because without a good "plot" to carry this show the characters had to do it and they weren't really able to IMO :( Overall I'd say this is a fine series to watch without any real expectations, and there were some nice and comedic moments, but nothing worth recommending. 5/10

First half ep really good.
Overall repetitive straight ramen ad, seasoned by interesting (tho not likeable) characters Yuu & Koizumi, occasional funky osts, and ramen tourism makes me want to travel jp & food there.
Maybe only 3-4 episodes were actually good due to non-Yuu side characters (like that German girl).

The other 3 girls who appeared in opening scenes are appeared as cameo in this episode.
I am quite disappointed the other 3 girls (besides Yuu, Koizumi, Jun, and Misa) are never eating together with main characters in proper episodes.....

Not bad episode for the end in term of enjoyment and character interaction but I still fail to see even grain of developement of Kozumi herself... She didn't change at all during the whole show and this schtick got really stale as this series moved on.

There were some better episodes that broke this circle of repetition of this series for a while (the Museum one or Mountain one were probably the best) but other were just not enjoyable at all. Watching of literally the same scenes over again and again grew boring pretty fast and sadly this show had little else to offer.
Count annoying main girl to it and soon you realize it was all just a chore.

I can't but to compare with great Takunomi that did wonderful drink show with many sidestories which was a lot more enjoyable and they only had half-episodes. Koizumi had none of these and repetition and zero character developement killed it in the end.

Eh this was average mostly.
They did drop some interesting ramen facts, but I dont feel like they described the flavors enough. It was kinda like watching a tourism ad for various ramen shops in Japan.
I still feel its better than Wakako-zake
soo idk Id give this a 5.5/10
