New Key Visual for “Isekai Shokudou” TV Anime

The official website for the Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World) television anime adaptation has released a new key visual. The opening theme, “One in a Billion”, will be performed by the singer May’n and the Wake Up, Girls! group. Kiyono Yasuno (Megumi Katou from Saekano and Botan Kumegawa from Anne Happy) will be joining the cast and singing the ending theme.

The series began as a light novel series that was first published in February 2015 by Katsumi Enami (art) and Junpei Inuzuka (story). It is currently ongoing and received a manga adaptation in November 2016.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis below:

“At the bottom floor of the building with a dog signboard, in the shopping district near the office street, there lies a cafeteria called “Youshoku no Nekoya,” that has an illustration of a cat on the door. It’s been open for fifty years and has satisfied various salarymen from nearby offices. Despite it being called a Western cuisine cafeteria, it also provides other varieties of menus. For the people of this certain world, it’s their one-and-only special cafeteria.

There is, however, one secret to “Nekoya.” The cafeteria is closed to the public every Saturday in order to make way for special guests. When a bell rings, customers from different places of birth and races appear who ask for mysterious and delicious dishes. They are actually the same dishes served to the salarymen, but these special guests find them to be more exotic than to what they are used to. As the cafeteria aims to serve masterpieces, it is usually referred as “Isekai Shokudou.”

And so, the bell rings again this week.”

Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World) will begin airing this summer.
