For an anime I expected nothing from, Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens delivered a fairly compelling story full of fun and interesting characters. What did you think of it or did you miss this during the Winter 2018 season? Review: There was no doubt that one of my favourite shows from the Winter 2018 season was Hakata … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Series Review: Fun Times With A Group of Killers

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 12: They Set It Up And Bring It Home

This anime didn't disappoint. As we went into the final episode it delivered yet another cohesive resolution to its plot bringing everything together in a highly satisfying manner. Of course we get plenty of Lin and Banba, which probably explains part of what I liked about this episode. But mostly it was that all the … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 12: They Set It Up And Bring It Home

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 11: Betrayal By Any Other Name

Banba, Lin, and all the other hitmen, torturers, assassins, hackers and other unsavoury characters continue to enthral as this anime enters its final stage. There is blood being spilled aplenty in this episode as well as some sweeter moments and some funny moments. Somehow the balance is just right and we continue driving smoothly toward … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 11: Betrayal By Any Other Name

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 10: Two Episodes To Go And All The Threads Are Coming Together

There are few anime that episodes from their final I feel confident in believing that everything is somehow going to come together, but Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens is remarkably reassuring in the way that each arc within the show has had closure and as we move into the final we see that each of those independent … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 10: Two Episodes To Go And All The Threads Are Coming Together

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 9: This Confirms It – Lin Needs a Hug

Anime has this real trend of giving main characters fairly horrific back-stories which are usually revealed through flashbacks at the mid-season or just before the final arc of the season, and Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens has followed trend by devoting most of this episode to Lin. Now we already knew Lin had a fair amount of … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 9: This Confirms It – Lin Needs a Hug

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 8: I Think We Need A Spin-Off Series Called Saito’s Revenge

Review: I took three things away from this episode. Number 1: The main cast have plot armour surrounding them so it doesn't matter how many people they are up against, how much on the back foot they are, or how hard they are hit, they are going to get up and win the day so … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 8: I Think We Need A Spin-Off Series Called Saito’s Revenge

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 7: About Time Someone Tried To Kill the Hacker

Review: I'd been wondering how Enokida was still alive and kicking given he seems to take on more or less any job even if it means trouble for his friends. This episode starts a new arc that reveals some of his back story and also plunges us into yet another interesting caper. The only down … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 7: About Time Someone Tried To Kill the Hacker

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 6: Mistaken Identity Can Be Fun

Review: I think this is the episode I officially fell in love with this series. I've really been enjoying it so far but there's always been a hesitation in committing to it because there were so many chances for the show to derail. Yet 6 episodes of consistent entertainment and I'm now head over heels … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 6: Mistaken Identity Can Be Fun

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 5: Why Not a Ninja?

Review: This show continues to impress with how it manages to weave its story together. Despite episode 4 bringing the first arc to what felt like a decisive close, this episode managed to feel like we were just picking up where we left off while integrating the new problem our characters will face. I do … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 5: Why Not a Ninja?

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 3: Game On

Review: Well, this anime just became my favourite of this season (still sitting underneath March Comes in Like a Lion which carried over from last season). The first two episodes interested me and started getting me drawn into these characters and their world but episode 3 consolidated everything I wanted from this show. Between the … Continue reading Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens Episode 3: Game On
