It’s a sad fact of life that Ms. Koizumi loves ramen noodles more than she loves you. (Or me, or anyone or anything.) Even so, fans in Akihabara will have a rare chance to receive a Valentine’s Day gift from the otherwise chilly heroine for a few precious hours tomorrow.
A Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles booth in Akiba will be the landmark for the giveaway. Coming to the booth in cosplay will earn you a special Valentine’s Day card and a “ramen confection.” As an added bonus, the reverse side of the card serves as a ticket for a bonus topping at the nearby Akihabara Ramen Theater.
Additionally, the official Twitter account @ramen_koizumi will be running a “Fill Valentine’s Day with Ramen!” campaign. Fans can send in photos of themselves celebrating the day with ramen instead of chocolate, and three will receive a poster signed by the series cast.
The Akihabara campaign is only open for a few hours tomorrow — from 4-8 pm.
