From 11.40 p.m., Saturdays, 27 June 2015
On their way home from school one day, high school students Osawa Yu and Nakamura Misa happen to find a beautiful girl queuing in front of the popular ramen shop, Konjiki Hototogisu, in downtown Tokyo. She stands out at the end of an all-male queue. This girl is Koizumi-san, the much-talked about enigmatic student who recently transferred to their class. Koizumi-san does not speak to anyone even during break time and has a dreamy expression with her earplugs on. Misa, who is not good with her, ends up going home. But Osawa has a thing for beautiful girls and approaches Koizumi-san at the end of the queue. She starts a conversation with her. However, she only gets short answers in response. Despite being almost ignored by Koizumi-san, Osawa enters the shop together with her. She witnesses Koizumi-san’s complete change when the ramen is put in front of the two of them. The look of ecstasy that she shows after intently slurping the ramen, has Osawa completely enchanted. Koizumi-san actually loves ramen and is a ramen expert who will seek and try out delicious ramen with gusto every day.

A cool, mysterious and beautiful high school girl. She is usually quiet, but in fact she loves ramen to the extent that she would eat her way through it every day. Because of that, she gets talkative when it comes to ramen.
Miyama Karen as Osawa Yu
Koizumi-san’s classmate. She is more fond of beautiful girls than three regular meals a day. She takes an interest in Koizumi-san and hangs around her with the sole purpose of making friends. As a result, she ends up trying out ramen together with Koizumi-san.
Furuhata Seika as Nakamura Misa
Koizumi-san’s classmate. Osawa Yu’s good friend. A popular, beautiful girl. She has to be careful not to turn fat because of her boyfriend.
