Kadokawa officially confirmed the second television anime season of Junpei Inuzuka and Katsumi Enami‘s Restaurant to Another World (Isekai Shokudō) light novel series on Friday. The anime’s official website unveiled a teaser visual, the three returning main cast members, and the anime’s staff.
The returning cast includes:
Junichi Suwabe as Shopkeeper
Sumire Uesaka as Aletta
Saori Ōnishi as Kuro
Masato Jinbo returns as director and series script supervisor, but OLM replaces SILVER LINK as the animation studio. Yasukazu Shoji (Go-Go Tamagotchi!, Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama) is the new character designer, replacing Keiichi Sano and Takao Sano.
“Western Cuisine Nekoya” seems like a typical restaurant on the outside, but it hides an amazing secret: on Saturdays, portals to another world appear that allow all manner of unearthly creatures to sit down for a nice meal. Elves, dragons, or anyone else who wants to sample our world’s cuisine is welcome to partake before returning to their world, sated and ready for their next quest. This lovely light novel series, never before published in English, celebrates even the simplest of our foods as fantastical adventures in fine dining. Bon appétit!
Inuzuka launched the story on the Shōsetsu-ka ni Narō (literally, “Let’s Become Novelists”) website in 2013, and Shufunotomo‘s Hero Bunko imprint published the first print volume in February 2015. Inami has been drawing the illustrations. The fifth volume shipped in Japan in March 2019.
