Adaptation based on "food fantasy" light novels heads to Tokyo MX and BS Fuji in April of 2018
Two more supernatural creatures have joined the cast of Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi ("Making a Living at an Inn in the Afterlife"), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of "food fantasy" light novels about a young woman who accidentally lands a job as a chef at an otherworldly hospitality house.
The new cast members include:
- Mitsuki Nakae as Kasuga, a shape-shifting tanuki who works as a hostess and server at the Tenjin-ya.
- And Yuuki Inoue as Sasuke, a kamaitachi ("sickle-weasel") who tends to the gardens of the Tenjin-ya.
In Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi, Aoi is a college student who possesses the ability to see spirits. One day she is whisked away to the underworld by a demon-god who is also the proprietor of an otherworldly inn known as the "Tenjin-ya". The demon-god claims that Aoi must marry him in order to pay off her grandfather's substantial debt, but instead Aoi agrees to work as a cook at the Tenjin-ya in order to earn enough to return to the land of the living.
The original Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi light novels are written by Midori Yuuma, illustrated by Laruha, and published by Fujimi Shobo (a division of Kadokawa) under their Fujimi L Bunko imprint. The Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi TV anime is directed by Yoshiko Okuda and features animation by GONZO. The series will broadcast on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and other stations beginning in April of 2018.
