The first volume of the food manga MS. KOIZUMI LOVES RAMEN NOODLES will be released by Dark Horse Comics this September.
The press release follows:
Media Release — 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, 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, available for $10.99. Pre-order now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop.
