Raise Your Ramen Bowl in Cheers

While Davis (sorry, “Daisuke” for you purists) was never my favorite DigiDestined, I will admit he had one of the best lines of the season 2 finale:

“I wanna open a noodle cart! Yeah, what’s the matter with that? I wanna make the best noodles in the whole wide world!”

In a world full of the bizarre and fantastic, this line from the series always stood out to me the most in that it sounded so sincere in its delivery. While the scene as a whole was clearly giving a message to the viewers of doing anything you set your mind to, it didn’t come off as preachy (or at least too preachy) and has really stood out to me even when watching the episode now.

So, as we all take our first steps into the new realm that is the year 2010, take these words to heart and make the best damn ramen you can. (Whether that’s figurative or literal is completely your call.)

See ya next year!
