Ristorante Paradiso Slice-of-Life Anime's Promos Posted

posted on by Egan Loo
Based on Natsume Ono's manga about colorful restaurant staff in Rome

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Natsume Ono's Ristorante Paradiso manga has posted a 30-second television commercial and a 80-second promotional video. (In the linked page, select the "Speciale/Special" button at the bottom, and then select the "TVスポット" or "80秒 PV" buttons.)

The manga and anime's story is set in a restaurant in Rome that the heroine Nicoletta (Fumiko Orikasa) visits from the countryside. Her parents divorced when she was young, so her grandparents raised her while her mother Olga (Haruhi Terada) tried to remarry. Nicoletta goes to the restaurant owned by Lorenzo (Kenji Nomura), Olga's new husband, and ends up apprenticing there among a kitchen staff of colorful characters.

Mitsuko Kase (SaiKano, Glass Maiden, Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory) is directing this project at the David Production studio. Shinichi Inotsume (Hayate the Combat Butler) is supervising the scripts, and Itsuko Takeda (Boys Be..., The Galaxy Railways, Mirage of Blaze) is adapting Ono's characters for animation.
