Snack Food Entertainment– ‘Crazy Food Truck’ Reviewed

In Crazy Food Truck a seasoned cook driving a food truck through a desert wasteland happens upon a mysterious naked girl with an armed militia on her tail. The manga by Rokurou Ogaki is like a madcap blend between Food Wars and Road Warrior.

The lead characters Gordon, the gruff middle-aged cook, and Arisa, the promiscuous and ravenous girl, play well off of each other. Each character is easily likable and it’s fun to watch them on their journey. Fans of Food Wars blend of the cooking genre with ecchi comedy will no doubt enjoy the ample helpings of fan-service. Arisa is clearly written and designed to be somebody’s “Best Girl” and in that regard she succeeds.

Where Crazy Food Truck runs out of mileage is in the supporting characters, generic post-apocalypse, and underwhelming villain. The desert wasteland populated by fantastic creatures is serviceable but feels like a watered down version of the same world featured in this year’s Rust Eater Bisco. The lead villain shows up way too late in the manga volume and fails to leave an impression.

Crazy Food Truck’s cover and premise caught my attention, and while I don’t think it’s the greatest manga I felt that I got what I came for. It’s a wacky, ecchi, and ultimately escapist romp. While I’m not convinced to buy any of the next manga volumes I’d tune in if the series ever got an anime adaptation.
