Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san
(One episode watched):|
As I started watching episode one, the thought occurred to me that whether it was good or not would probably depend on whether the show had any semblance of an interesting plot or if the she's-a-ramen-fanatic gag would be all there was to it. That's because few comedy anime actually have jokes that are funny enough to be worth watching just for the laughs you will get. The show turned out to be composed of several short skits about the interplay between the two main characters, Koizumi and the dark blue-haired girl who thinks she's cute and wants to be her friend. The jokes were pretty weak; I think only once did I come anywhere near a laugh-out-loud. The show is very educational if you are curious about the various types of ramen; it fits neatly into the recent genre of anime about food and cooking. But the jokes were inadequate for me and I didn't sense any serious plot coming together; it seemed to be about as sophisticated as the cartoons in the newspaper.
