Junichi Suwabe, Sumire Uesaka Star in Restaurant to Another World TV Anime
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The anime will star Junichi Suwabe (Fate/stay night's Archer, Yuri!!! on Ice's Victor) as the restaurant's shopkeeper, and Sumire Uesaka (KanColle's Fubuki, Chaos;Child's Serika) as Aletta. Aletta is the daughter of a magical being who works at the restaurant one day a week.
Masato Jinbo (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!, Chaos;Child) is directing the anime at Silver Link, and is also supervising the series' scripts. Takao Sano (Chitose Get You!!, Shomin Sample, Nurse Witch Komugi R) and Keiichi Sano (Heaven's Memo Pad, Strike the Blood, Absolute Duo) are adapting Katsumi Inami's original character designs for animation.
The anime will premiere this summer.
The original story centers on a restaurant called "Yōshoku no Nekoya" (Western Cuisine Cat Restaurant), which is located on the first basement floor of a building at a corner of a shopping district near an office area. While it normally feeds salarymen, there is a secret in Nekoya. Every Saturday when the shop takes a day off, Nekoya is teeming full of "special customers." For the office workers, it is a familiar place with familiar dishes, but for these Saturday customers — "people from that world" — it is nothing but cuisine never seen or heard before.
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. Katsumi Inami has been drawing the illustrations, and the third volume shipped last September.
