The official website for the television anime adaptation of Natsume Ono's Ristorante Paradiso manga has posted a 30-second production studio video. (In the linked page, select the "Speciale/Special" button at the bottom, and then select the "制作現場映像30秒" button on the center left.) The video shows the anime's staffers working on the animation sketches, backgrounds, and preliminary footage for the project. The two previous promotional videos are still available on the website.
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 for an April 8 premiere. 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.
