I've been excited about Minoru Kawasaki's "Neko Rahmen Taisho" since it was announced back in May. A cat who runs his own ramen restaurant? "Neko Rahmen" manga creator Kenji Sonishi must be some kind of mad genius, so who better to adapt his four-panel comic to the big screen than the mad genius responsible for "The Calamari Wrestler" and "Executive Koala", Minoru Kawasaki?
Train conductor cats, hand puppets, steaming bowls of noodles; head over to Nippon Cinema to check out all the feline Kawasaki goodness. "Neko Rahmen Taisho" hits Japanese theatres next month.
