Ramen Fighter Miki Review

Story:
Miki works with her mother in their family ramen shop. Well, she attempts to work anyway. As it turns out, Miki is often distracted from her job by various other things, from playing baseball with the neighborhood kids to fighting Megumi, the bakery shop daughter across the street. While she obviously can’t deliver ramen in any orderly fashion, Miki can’t be docked points for fighting spirit. In fact, she has a bit too much of that.

Violence:
This show has a lot of violence. In fact, about 80% of this show is fighting, though often in a very over-the-top manor. There is blood on occasion, though it’s not in large amounts. Limbs get twisted wrong, bones break and bruises are pretty common place as well. Although the ridiculousness of these fights is for comedy’s sake, it’s still not PG material.

Language:
The worst language in this show is the “illegitimate-son-word.” Unfortunately this word is used pretty often in the heat of battle.

Nudity:
There’s no nudity in this show, wonderfully.

Theology/Mythology:
One character, a school teacher, looks very creepy and is often referred to by frightened people as a ghost or “vengeful spirit.” She isn’t one, of course.

Personal Impression:
This show is not at all to be taken seriously. It’s comedy, though not in the typical style of comedy. Ramen Fighter Miki is pretty much a parody of fighting shows and thus a lot of its laughs come from over-the-top fighting moves and ridiculous dialog. For those that have seen a great deal of fighting anime, these joke are hilarious. However, it’s not the kind of funny that everyone can get into. And for people looking for pure comedy, the jokes might seem weak. And for those looking for epic battles, this isn’t the place they can be found. And for those looking for good story telling and well built characters… Let’s just say this show plum forgot such things existed.
Overall this show is a good (though short) show to watch for fun. Especially if you’ve seen a lot of fighting anime and have wondered how seriously people take some of the cheesiness involved. But if parody comedy isn’t your thing, than Ramen Fighter Miki might leave you with just a raised eyebrow or two.

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.
