The official website for Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits-, the television anime of writer Midori Yūma and illustrator Laruha's Kakuriyo Yadomeshi (Afterlife Inn Cooking) light novel series, noted on Tuesday that singer Nano performs the opening theme song "Utsushiyo no Yume" (A Dream of the Temporal World) for the anime's second half.
The second half of the anime began with the 14th episode on Monday, and centers on Orio-ya, the rival inn to the Tenjin-ya.
The new cast for the second half includes:
Yoshiko Okuda (animation director for The Perfect Insider, Casshern Sins) is directing the anime at GONZO. Tomoko Konparu (Utano☆Princesama Legend Star, Kimi ni Todoke) is in charge of series composition, and Youko Satou (Saiyuki Reload Blast, Dog & Scissors) is designing the characters. Takurō Iga (Fuuka, Aria the Scarlet Ammo AA) is composing the music, and Flying Dog is handling the music production. Nao Tōyama performed the first opening theme song "Tō no Manimani," and Manami Numakura performed the first ending theme song "Sai -color-."
The series centers on a female college student named Aoi (voiced by Nao Tōyama), who inherited the ability to see spirits from her late grandfather. Aoi prides herself on her cooking. One day she's feeding some agricultural spirits when suddenly a god and the master of the Tenjin-ya inn appears and takes Aoi away. He says that due to her grandfather's debts, she must become his bride. Aoi hates this idea and instead declares that she will pay back her grandfather's debt by working at the Tenjin-ya.
Yūma launched the novel series in Kadokawa's Fujimi L Bunko imprint in 2015, and Kadokawa published the eighth volume on April 13. As of last October, the series has more than 340,000 copies in print.
