Ongoing adaptation based on gourmet fantasy light novel series hits Japanese TV in Fall of 2021
It's always a good time to enjoy a hearty meal with good friends, or at least that's the impression given in a new "character episode" key visual for Restaurant to Another World 2 (known in Japan as Isekai Shukudo 2), the ongoing TV anime adaptation based on the series of gourmet fantasy light novels written by Junpei Inuzuka and illustrated by Katsumi Enami about a special eatery on Earth that caters to the denizens of a magical fantasy world.
The new visual (below) features Lionel (CV: Nobuyuki Hiyama), Tatsugorou (CV: Hōchū Ōtsuka), and Altorius (CV: Motomu Kiyokawa) dining together and enjoying one another's company.
Restaurant to Another World is directed by Masato Jinbo and features animation production by OLM. Crunchyroll currently streams the first season of Restaurant to Another World, and describes the story of the series as follows:
There is a certain restaurant in the first basement level of a multi-tenant building in one corner of a shopping street near the office district. The historical restaurant, marked by a sign with a picture of a cat, is called "Western Cuisine Nekoya." This restaurant looks completely normal through the week, but on Saturdays, it opens in secret exclusively to some very unique guests. During these hours, doors in various areas of a parallel world open to allow customers of many different races and cultures into the restaurant.
