Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san – Episode 5 Recap (Is It Evil?)
Yuu has actually gotten more obsessed. How Evil is Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san episode 5?
Yuu really needs help. The girl keeps trying to get Koizumi to like her but it keeps having the opposite effect. Anyway, let’s get started. We start this episode with Yuu naratingKoizumi eating her latest favorite ramen. This would be normal if she wasn’t saying all of it where Koizumi can actually hear her. In the narration, Yuu also talks about a time when Koizumi ate alone.
When asked how she knew about that Yuu goes into a flashback of her stalking Koizumi. Koizumi doesn’t really respond well to the whole stalking thing either. She tells Yuu it was nice that she made ramen for her that one time and that it was delicious, but that was all. Koizumi then leaves. Ouch, that had to hurt.
During the second part of the episode, Yuu is daydreaming in school. I don’t think I have to tell you what she is daydreaming about. She is snapped out of it by Misa who has cleaning duty along with Jun and Koizumi. Misa starts singing a song about an Alge they learned about in class but Yuu doesn’t recall anything from class. See, she needs help.
Jun and Koizumi also have a conversation about the Alge leading to them going out to eat ramen made with it. Apparently, that particular Alge is really good for you or something. It has all kinds of health benefits that I won’t be listing here. Koizumi and Jun both go for another bowl this episode. But Koizumi ends up going for a third too. Does she have a bottomless stomach or something?
During the third part, a lot happened. Yuu learned that Koizumi hates standing in lines to enter ramen shops, so she comes up with the ultimate plan. Yuu gets in line for a popular ramen shop knowing Koizumi is bond to show up. Yuu entends to give her spot to Koizumi and leave but plans seldom remain in contact with the enemy.
Yuu faces off with a group of people who cut the line. Yuu tries to tell them off but it’s not very effective. If only there was someone who could shame these people into doing the right thing. Enter Koizumi, She shows up just in time to shame the group by saying true ramen lovers would never cut a line. She even goes into the details of what the staff of the shop goes through every night to get ready for the next day. She then goes to the back of the line with Yuu.
The line cutters soon join them in the back of the line. They say they love ramen too, I guess Koizumi hit them where it hurt. It takes a whopping two hours for them all to get inside. That better be the best ramen ever made and it better be the best thing in town. Don’t get me wrong I love me some ramen, but that is a bit absurd.
The longest I’ve ever had to wait for food was 45 minutes and that was for pizza at Mellow Mushroom. And that seemed a little long for a single pizza. Anyway, we get the regular slurping sounds and the weird satisfied faces we’re used to. I’m pretty sure that’s one part of the show that’ll never change. We get an extra scene that includes the line skippers leaving satisfied too.
Yuu and Koizumi have a little chat after that as well. Koizumi basically tells Yuu to stop stalking her which again dashes her dreams. I would feel sorry for her but she does this to her self every freakin episode. At least they haven’t made it get old yet. It’s done dffrently enough every time to keep it interesting so far. Although they just reused the stalking thing. They might start cycling their old ideas now.
Overall this episode was about as Evil as a Villian (9). If they start reusing more jokes this could go downhill real quick. Right now the show has a good pace to it. It’s somewhat informative about all kinds of ramen and some other things I never expected. If I ever visit Japan I think I’ll check out some ramen shops. You know for science. If you like getting information about various Japanese foods check out our reviews of Dagashi Kashi 2. It’s more hilarious than this show by far. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
