Soon, this restaurant that’s simply out of this world will open for business.
Yesterday, the official Isekai Shokudo (Restaurant to Another World) anime website updated with a new visual. The image features Aletta, menu in hand, standing before the door. Inside, Master awaits to welcome his latest guests.
The site also updated with the show’s theme song details. “Wake Up, May’n!”, a collaboration between the Wake Up, Girls! idol unit and May’n (image below), will perform opening theme song One in a Billion. Kiyono Yasuno will perform closing theme song Namida (Tears).
In addition to performing the ending theme, Kiyono Yasuno will join the show’s cast as Sara Gold. Yasuno joins two previously confirmed roles:
- Shopkeeper/Master: Junichi Suwabe
- Aletta: Sumire Uesaka
Isekai Shokudo is based on Junpei Inuzuka’s light novel series of the same name. Masato Jinbo (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei Herz!, Chaos;Child) will direct the series and take charge of series composition at Silver Link. The team of Takao Sano (Nurse Witch Komugi R, Shomin Sample) and Keiichi Sano (Heaven’s Memo Pad, Strike the Blood) will provide character designs for the project.
Junpei Inuzuka published the first Isekai Shokudo story on Japanese site Shosetsu-ka ni Naro (Let’s Become Novelists!) in 2013. The first print edition was released in February 2015, under Shufunotomo’s Hero Bunko. Shufunotomo’s published versions feature illustrations by Katsumi Inami.
To date, two volumes have been published. The third book is slared to hit retailers on September 30. A manga adaptation of the title is also in the works, which will début in Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine. According to Inuzuka, the manga will share the same first chapter as the original work, though subsequent chapters will diverge from the original books.
