Ban Shogo is an arogant college student whom sent to Trattoria, Tokyo, to help. That place is one of the famous Italian restaurant in the city. Ban is confident that he can satisfy the chef with his skill. But, that’s not the way the story goes. Those chef’s skills are amazing. They act quickly and they serve better food Ban could never imagine before.

Instead of being a helper, he ends up being a nuisance. However, Ban soon realizes that he has to change his attitude. One’s success depend of his attitude, right? He starts to learn many things here.

I watched the dorama long before I know that it came from a manga. This is not about food, it’s only about self centered Ban. The drawing is quite dark and harsh. There are so many shading that resemble murder scenes (ha ha I love murderous story). It would be better to watch the dorama than reading the manga. Furthermore, it’s Matsujun who played the main character. I’m not a fan of him, but he’s quite cute (at that moment).

i26473Toya loves her mother’s ramen. But, since she’s hospitalized, he can not enjoy it. The matsuri is coming and they’re supposed to have fun together. It makes him sad. When he walks along the matsuri road, he meets a young lazy man with a ramen booth. He cooks badly.

Toya helps him with this. Yeah, since his mother’s away, he’s been responsibled in cooking at home. Knowing his skills, Toya is persuaded to get into this ramen business. However, his partner, that good-for-nothing Makimura Narumi spends all their profit for sake. Uuh…that pisses Toya off. How can an adult be so irresponsible?
Toya’s ramen would have to go far to find it’s unique special taste while at the same time educating Narumi to the life of adult.
