Anime continues to take the real world by storm with each passing day it seems. Whether anime dances appear in the end zone of the National Football League or your favorite pop stars make references to some of their favorite anime protagonists, it seems that JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is the latest series to have an impact on the real world. At the Japanese Noodle restaurant of Reiwa, a ramen chef has gained popularity for making several references to the series that has popularized the Joestar bloodline and the insane Stands that they battle throughout the generations.
Numerous Twitter Users have managed to document footage and images from the popular ramen restaurant, showing just how the chef himself manages to pay homage to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure by yelling out classic catchphrases and adorning his work space with several images and figurines from the series:
クセの強い麺屋 れいわ へ行ってきました！ジョジョ色がとっても強い😂 店長さん良い人でラーメンも美味しくてまた行きたい〜 pic.twitter.com/L15GlURBCk— てと✩⃛ (@o0teto0o) October 28, 2019
やっと行けました。— ごろう (@Gorouda) October 19, 2019
This ramen chef would fit well into the JoJo franchise, specifically during the franchise's fourth season, Diamond Is Unbreakable, where Josuke was introduced to a chef that used his Stand in order to make lives better for the citizens of the sleepy town of Morioh. Antonio Trussardi was originally thought of by this particular JoJo to be a villain, but his culinary skills proved the very opposite.
What do you think of this ramen chef's skills and love of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and JoJo!
