posted on by Karen Ressler
Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Junpei Inuzuka and Katsumi Enami's Restaurant to Another World (Isekai Shokudo) light novel series. The first volume is slated for print and digital release on June 18, 2019.
Seven Seas describes the story:
“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 fourth volume shipped in Japan in June 2017.
Crunchyroll also began offering simultaneous publication of Takaaki Kugatsu's manga adaptation in July 2017. The manga launched in November 2016.
