    1. It's getting a bit ridiculous how Yamaoka and his father keep running into one another even when they're not in Tokyo. But whatever, I'm here for the food.But that's not to say that Oishinbo only deal with food -- as always, other issues are present, such as racist language, classism, and emotional problems between individuals.


    2. Well, I gotta say.After just finishing the manga about Sake THIS volume was a very, very light read.I was almost disappointed at how light this book was because the Sake volume was SO educational. I mean all of the Oishinbo volumes teach you things about various food/drink but like I said this felt very light on.Maybe, it's incase you have a hangover from all the sake trying that they didn't want to sozzle your brain with too much info!! Haha This is also where the storyline becomes a bit blurre [...]


    3. Uno de las entregas que a priori más me interesaban (por el tipo de especialidad: los fideos y empanadas), y sin embargo, ha sido la más floja a nivel culinario- técnico hasta la fecha. Y si no lo han alargado (porque siempre se “enrollan” con eso de los Delicatessen Nipones hasta la extenuación), es por que no daba más de sí. Me ha decepcionado bastante lo poco que se ha tratado el Ramen; lo más destacable ha sido la importancia de la elaboración e ingredientes en la masa madre y su [...]


    4. Quite a bit less in depth and detailed than the previous volume about sake had been. Kind of a shame. I was kind of hoping to learn just as much about ramen as I had about sake. Instead, this volume leans more on that overarching story: the Ultimate Menu, the father-son rivalry, etc. Which doesn't work out so well. As a sort of "greatest hits" compilation, the long-running story gets shredded to pieces. It is nice that the extensive end notes will help the reader keep that story straight, but it [...]


    5. I've decided to start basing my ratings on how educational these are. Unlike the first Volume, they are starting (with Volume 2) to get a bit more choppy story-wise. However, I'm taking away a wealth of knowledge, and not all about food!This book primarily deals with noodle dishes. A few misconceptions on cold noodle dishes, ramen, the preparation of noodles, the actual cooking of noodles and a harsh beat down on the use of MSG are prominent in this volume.It still cracks me up whenever the fath [...]


    6. Half the fun of this manga is its mere existence. One always hears about the sheer variety of subject matter supposedly available in manga form in Japan, so it's gratifying to see something non-fantasy or SF get an English translation. Oishinbo is odd. What's being translated are selected chapters of a much longer series, which revolves around the cuisine of Japan. Rather than translate the entire series, Viz has opted for selected chapters, sort of a Greatest Hits approach. Since the main empha [...]


    7. So I accidentally read this one first, and will now go back to the very first volume (oops). But, regardless, what Western readers should realize is that Oishinbo was an incredibly popular comic in Japan, only recently going on an indefinite hiatus. We're talking a run from 1983 to 2014, with each volume selling about 1.2 million copies. According to ye olde , that's more than 130 million copies. Culturally, in America, we can't imagine something centering around food having this kind of popular [...]


    8. Another amazing Oishinbo comic book. It truly lives up to its blurb at the back, "endlessly informative yet entertaining" (paraphrased). It describes and explains so much of Japanese cuisine, which remains a mystery to me. This series has helped clear up some of the mysteriousness surrounding Japanese cuisine (maybe it's only mysterious to me) and it does so in an entertaining way. It doesn't bore me about its culinary greatness. It shows it and demonstrates it in a comical way. I look forward t [...]


    9. This was an interesting look into the world of ramen and gyoza in Japan. In particular, there is one story about the use of offensive terms for China in Japan that I appreciated. The author promotes the idea that nations must treat each other with respect just as individuals do, so the use of offensive terms for certain nations should be stopped. The only downside is that since this volume focuses on one type of food, there is a little repetition in the content of the stories.


    10. This series continues to be a masterclass on Japanese cuisine and food culture for me. Always informative and always always makes me hungry. The drama is ancillary to the food knowledge, and the dialogue loses something in translation, I imagine. But more than makes up for that in flavor.


    11. I had been eying the Oishinbo series since I first spotted them at my local comic book shop a while back. A couple of weeks ago, I got lucky and scooped up seven titles for a dollar each at my church's stoop sale.I've been exploring the genre of graphic novels ever since I was first introduced to them by some teaching colleagues as a way to teach literacy in a fun and engaging way (especially for the lowest-skilled readers). As somebody who also loves to cook and learn more about food and cookin [...]


    12. I don't generally record the manga (Japanese comics) that I read. (Though if you're interested, you must try _Hikaro No Go_!) But Scott found a new one that he thought I'd like. Oishinbo is manga for foodies. The story line is about two newspapers whose food critics are trying to create the Ultimate/Supreme (Japanese) menus. The main critics are father and son, so there's tension there, too.This volume is about Ramen (noodles) and Gyoza (potstickers). Being volume 3 but my first one to read, I h [...]


    13. This was surprisingly entertaining, despite its educational slant I basically wanted food the entire time I was reading. My main objection is the format ("à la carte" as they call it, where they've picked and chosen stories to translate from throughout the Oishinbo ongoing series): it was a bit confusing with the storyline and characters and I think if the notes and/or character introductions hadn't been there, I would have lost track of things. My smaller objection is the minute details (like [...]


    14. "Standing ovation"After reading two books in the Oishinbo series, I know this one would sure be something I like. To my surprise, this collection titled under "Ramen and Gyoza" exceeds my expectation of what a book of manga can achieve. Interesting stories and fascinating facts on ramen and gyoza, their common origin from Chinese culture, their modification and adaptation by Japanese, and how intricate and popular they are to the populace. Beyond all talks of food, it weaves in messages of respe [...]


    15. Probably my favorite of the set thus far. The stories were all much more stand alone which made for a more enjoyable compilation experience, plus the whole book just made me want to run out and get ramen and gyoza. Also I love how the author extols the virtues of organic food. I was surprised to see it in any of the books, but in this one they deal more with food for the "common people" and still creating regular meals with excellent ingredients is just fabulous. Also the push to eat more local [...]


    16. Another excellent book in this series. Ramen and gyoza are both originally Chinese dishes which have become changed over time that they're really Japanese. They're also both dishes that you're unlikely to make at home, though I've made dumplings at home with my family. Since restaurants which specialize in ramen or gyoza are rare in the US, the stories might be less relevant to Americans. One story about ordering in a fancy restaurant and asking the waiter for their suggestions is good. The plot [...]


    17. This is by far our families favorite Japanese eats. I think the first Japanese thing I ever made was Gyoza. A dear friend gave our family her recipe( she was raised in Japan because her parents were missionaries there) We loved it so much we even made our own skins once or twice. They are delicious. My Favorite part of this story other than the couple Yamaoka and Kurita is the easy demo on folding the gyoza. There's a Chinese shop that's branched out into Williamsburg, NY that makes dumpling and [...]


    18. Even though I skipped the first 2 volumes and jumped straight to this one, the story was easy to pick up because the characters' backgrounds are so shallow. Each part got formulaic -- someone wants the Ultimate Menu guy to help them with something, he's hesitant, but is then convinced to help out, he has to educate people about some tasty dish, then everyone is happy, repeat for next part.The book needs another round in the editing department because there were a couple of mistakes, not in trans [...]


    19. More adventures of Shiro and his friends (and also some who are most decidedly not his friends, such as his father). In this volume, the gang investigates ramen and gyoza (as you might have noodled out from the title), and, in the longest arc in the book, helps a gyoza purveyor save his business from obsolence by cooking up a rather unusual offering.As always, these English translations are presented "a la carte," a cute way of saying they're taken out of sequence for English readers. However, t [...]


    20. Love this comic book series. I can't put them down. Although the characterization is just above a soap opera's, these comics entertain, teach me a ton about Japanese food and culture. The comics immerse the reader in 1980s Japan. I've learned a ton about agriculture, food production, and food science from this series. I've read the English and traditional Chinese translations. The Chinese translation provides a much fuller, more culturally insightful read. The English edition has very helpful fo [...]


    21. When I read these graphic novels I always feel like the newspaper story plot and the father/son drama take a back seat to the food itself. While those are both plot points that are vital to the story, the descriptions of the food and what makes each item special (or suck) are just captivating, and I am not even that into eating. There is always a strong message of the importance of the purity and quality of the ingredients and how preservatives such as msg and even how the food is raised can aff [...]


    22. This incredibly educational and fun manga series has been my bible for Japanese food. I am a nut about Japanese food and culture. Tetsu Kariya uses a rivalry between two food critics (father and son who just hate on each other) to frame in-depth discussions about the history, preparation, cultural significance, and sustainability of Japanese food. The food, plants, ingredients are all drawn with such delicate attention to detail that I almost want to lick the pages (mostly, I just drool on them) [...]


    23. These books are humorous and educational as well. The main character is a food critic who always seems to get embroiled in heated food battles. As these play he out, he invariably ends up giving all kinds of useful tips and criticism about how to properly cook japanese food. These English versions are highlight volumes, each focused around a different type of food. They made me hungry while reading them and also inspired me to try to cook some of these things myself.


    24. This was my the first volume of Oishinbo I read. I really enjoyed it. The whole series makes me want to take a culinary tour of Japan. Because it is just excepts from the original Japanese manga, you have to be okay with the episodic nature, as well as jumping around the time line, but that's okay with me. I especially liked this volume for being so informative on such a basic subject, ramen, and I appreciate the environmental activism that is present in at least one of the stories.


    25. This, the third, volume on Oishinbo deals with ramen and other noodle-soup dishes. This book is similar in tone to volume 1 but has more character development making it a stronger addition to the series than any preceding work. A fast and enjoyable manga and ideal for anyone interested in Japanese food. It benefits from being less technical than volume 2 in both tone and focus. Very good indeed.


    26. Despite the ridiculous melo-dramatic relationship between the father and son dualing chefs I still love these books. I really enjoy the food information and the craft of cooking dialogue. Each of these makes me want to visit Japan more. I'm also very interested in the prevalence of Chinese cooking and its impact and influence in Japan in these books - I wasn't entirely aware of the connections before.


    27. This is the second of the Oishinbo series I've read. It's a manga series, each volume taking on a different aspect of Japanese cuisine. The storylines are pretty hackneyed and the characters are barely developed, but it's a fun way to learn about Japanese food. I also like the seriousness with which the authors approach food, drinks and cooking. They're really serious about food without being pretentious, and the books are fun reads.


    28. REALLY made me want dumplings! I appreciated the multiple-part stories more in this one than in Oishinbo: Sake (which dragged a bit). The discussion of China in relation to Japan was interesting but a bit didactic--I like the integration of politics and food in this series, but it's not handled very subtly. Perhaps a format or translation issue?


    29. This volume sticks to the usual Oishinbo recipe - interesting information on Japanese cuisine served up with the usual formulaic plotting. The interest can vary depending on just how interesting the subject is, and the world of Japanese adaptations of Chinese noodles here didn't grab me as much as some of the other volumes have.


    30. This book gives the reader some knowledge about Japanese cuisine. A side effect of this is that you're constantly hungry while reading it. The fact that everything always becomes is cook-off in this manga gets a bit tiring after a while. It's best to read something else in between chapters. That worked for my anyway.
