For the food lovers out there, Dark Horse Comics is importing some fresh translation of an awesome manga series of Japan culture, cooking life, and ramen. It’s Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles, starting off with Volume 1, piping hot in the late summer this year.
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 an 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, and Dark Horse is thrilled to publish the original manga series in English for the very first time!
The 136-page Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles Volume 1 arrives in comic shops September 11th and bookstores September 24th, and available for $10.99.
