posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the second television anime season of Junpei Inuzuka and Katsumi Enami's Restaurant to Another World (Isekai Shokudō) light novel series revealed more returning cast, a new visual, and the anime's fall premiere date on Tuesday.
The new visual shows the returning characters Artorius (right in image below), Tatsugorou (bottom left), and Lionel (top left), played by returning cast members Motomu Kiyokawa, Houchu Ohtsuka, and Nobuyuki Hiyama, respectively.
The returning cast includes:
Sumire Uesaka as Aletta
Saori Ōnishi as Kuro
Masato Jinbo returns as director and series script supervisor, but OLM replaces SILVER LINK as the animation studio. Yasukazu Shoji (Go-Go Tamagotchi!, Kami-sama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama) is the new character designer, replacing Keiichi Sano and Takao Sano.
Seven Seas is publishing the light novel series in English, and it 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 fifth volume shipped in Japan in March 2019.
The novels inspired the first television anime that premiered in July 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and FUNimation Entertainment streamed a dub.
Crunchyroll also began offering simultaneous publication of Takaaki Kugatsu's earlier manga adaptation in July 2017. The manga launched in November 2016 and ended in 2019.
