I think Koizumi may be in need of protective services… How Evil is Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san episode 10?
In this episode, we discovered that Yuu has built a little stalker shrine to Koizumi in her room. The wall is filled with pictures of Koizumi eating ramen. Look, I knew the girl was obsessed, but this took even me by surprise. I’m starting to wonder why no one has called the cops on her. Her obsession is not healthy or cute, it’s frightening. The entire first part of this episode showcased just how obsessed she is.
The second part of the episode seemed to head away from that mess though. Yuu and her brother went out to eat and everything was fine. Until Koizumi showed up to eat ramen. Yuu notices that her brother can’t seem to keep his eye’s off of Koizumi. If she knew what he and his friends had witnessed, I’m sure she wouldn’t have reacted so extremely. Yuu seemed to think that her brother had feelings for Koizumi. That didn’t go over that well.
Now, a lot happened on the last part of this episode. Jun’s mom and co-workers couldn’t make it to the restaurant that she set up for their lunch break. So she called Jun to gather a group with the biggest appetites to eat the special meal that she had already paid for. The dream team is comprised of Jun, the smart one, Yuu, the obsessed one, Misa, the cute one, and Koizumi, the hungry one. Together they form the group of friends you already knew about.
With the team finally united under the sole purpose of eating together for once, they head out to eat their quarry. A jumbo gyoza. I have no idea what that is, but it makes me hungry. The girls expressed concern with their ability to finish the thing, but Koizumi orders five bowls of ramen and is still able to help finish this big thing off. This girl eats more than me and I’m an overweight redneck. That ain’t right.
After the meal, the group is stuffed. Well, all except Koizumi who is still looking for more to eat. I’m pretty sure that confirms Koizumi has a bottomless stomach. Overall I’d say this episode is about as evil as a Villian (9). It’s fun to see that this show isn’t taking any of Yuu’s obsessions seriously at all. They’ve also mixed in episodes without her, just so the joke doesn’t get old. At the very least the show is aware of what it is.
If you want something a little more serious, check out CVoyage’s reviews for Toji no Miko. It’s an action series that has a lot going for it. Well, that’s all I have for you today. Thanks for letting me waste your time, people.
