Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san – Episode 7 Recap (Is It Evil?)
I think Yuu might be an idiot. That or she’s insane. How Evil is Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san episode 7?
This episode marks the start of Summer vacation for the main cast members. Misa suggests that they all go on a trip together, which triggers Yuu to ask Koizumi to come with them. Which has the same exact result as every other time so far. A very blunt “No thank you.” When Yuu presses her as to why, Koizumi tells her that she’s traveling the entire country, starting summer break.
Yuu and company go to an amusement park the very next day and had a blast. It’s worth noting that Koizumi can be seen in the background during the theme park adventure. Yuu notices her one time but Misa thinks she’s just going crazy. However, after the girls split up, Yuu runs into Koizumi again.
This is when things get creepy, again. Yuu follows Koizumi through the rest of her trip, eating all the ramen along the way. Yuu even stops trying to be subtle with her intentions, as if she was subtle from the start. Okay, I just got to say this. Yuu you’re being way too pushy. You can’t force a relationship to happen, that way and even if you did, it wouldn’t be as good as you want it to be.
Besides Yuu being somewhat annoying, she already said Koizumi’s true love is ramen. If she knows that why is she still trying this hard to make them a thing? (CVoyage: The narrative answer is that without that element, you don’t have a show. The problem isn’t the goal. It’s the character’s methods. Which are stalkerish for comedic effect and the joke has gotten old. You’re welcome.) Okay, enough of that for now. There wasn’t a whole lot to this episode. It was mostly just Koizumi and Yuu devouring ramen.
Oh, there is one thing I forgot to mention. Yuu was supposed to cook dinner for her brother during this episode. But her little trip with Koizumi lasted well into the night. Now I’m not sure how this works in Japan households, but If I miss my turn cooking dinner, my family usually does it themselves. (CVoyage: It’s not a Japan thing. They’re perfectly free to make that choice themselves).
Well, Yuu’s brother doesn’t do that. He apparently waits hours just for her to cook something. If they take turns we know he can cook too, so the question is why didn’t he? It’s possible he has a job that requires him to work late, but I have another theory. I think Yuu is the better cook and that he rather suffer from hunger than cook his own meal when it’s her turn. (CVoyage: …Are you focusing on this completely minute detail to pad out the article?) …Maybe.
He sure doesn’t look happy either way. Anyway, This episode was about as Evil as a Villian (9). While not a whole lot happened it was entertaining enough for me to watch without getting bored. The jokes are starting to get a little old but they don’t come in as often. It seems the show will maintain a certain balance to it even when some content might get old for some people. If you want a show that constantly changes up its jokes, check out our reviews of Karakai Jozu no Takagi-san. It’s a riot even though it’s by far the simplest show this season. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
Keep It Classy,
