September Anime Challenge: Muteki Kanban Musume

Our September Anime Challenge is Muteki Kanban Musume (Ramen Fighter Miki) based on the manga series by Jun Sadogawa, which ran from May 2002 to February 2006 in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion. There also was a sequel manga called Muteki Kanban Musume N. The Muteki Kanban Musume anime, produced by Telecom Animation Film was directed by Nobuo Tomizawa and aired in Japan between July and September 2006. The anime’s opening song is “Wild Spice” by Masami Okui and the ending song is “Muteki na Smile” by Naozumi Takahashi.

Muteki Kanban Musume is a food/comedy anime about the adventures of Miki Onimaru, a 20-year-old young woman whose mother runs a Chinese ramen restaurant. Miki is the delivery girl for her mother’s eatery but because of her boisterous and over active personality Miki gets into trouble frequently, which can be quite hilarious to see.
