Dark Horse Dips into Food Manga with Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles
The noodles, the toppings, the broth—the street stalls, restaurants, and home cooking…ramen is everywhere and has a history as rich as the dish itself, but how much do you know about these delectable noodles? Probably not as much as Ms. Koizumi in Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles Volume 1!
In Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles the cool, mysterious high school student Ms. Koizumi and her friends show you around the authentic ramen culture of everyday Japan in this fun food manga written by Naru Narumi…and translated by authentic Japanese chef, Portland’s Ayumi Kato Blystone!
Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles is Dark Horse’s first foray into the popular genre of food manga, and includes bonus ramen recipes! The popular Ms. Koizumi manga has been turned into both a Japanese live-action mini-series and an anime series on Crunchyoll. Since its debut in 2013, the story has been filling the hearts (and stomachs) of Japanese audiences. Here, it’s being printed in English for the first time!
The 136-page Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen NoodlesVolume 1 arrives in comic shops September 11th and bookstores September 24th, available for $10.99.
