DMM Pictures announced a second anime season for Junpei Inuzuka's Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World) light novel on Friday. The production company also opened an official website, revealing new staff and a teaser visual (pictured above).

Masato Jinbo (Senryuu Shoujo, Chaos;Child) is returning from the first season to direct and handle the series composition at animation studio OLM (Utawarerumono, Odd Taxi). Yasukazu Shouji (Kamisama Minarai: Himitsu no Cocotama, Go-Go Tamagotchi!) is designing the characters, replacing Takao Sano and Keiichi Sano.

Junichi Suwabe (Demi-chan wa Kataritai), Sumire Uesaka (Musaigen no Phantom World), and Saori Oonishi (Beelzebub-jou no Okinimesu mama.) are reprising as Tenshu, Aletta, and Kuro, respectively.

Silver Link. produced the 12-episode first anime season in Summer 2017. Crunchyroll simulcast the show with subtitles, while Funimation streamed an English dub. The latter released the anime series on home video in North America in November 2019.

Inuzuka began penning the slice of life fantasy novel on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in January 2013. Shufunotomo began publishing the series under its Hero Bunko imprint with illustrations by Katsumi Enami (Baccano) in February 2015 and shipped the fifth volume in March 2019. Isekai Shokudou has a cumulative 1.1 million copies of its volumes in print.

Takaaki Kugatsu serialized a four-volume manga adaptation in Young Gangan from November 2016 to June 2019. Manga artist duo Yamizawa-Morozawa will launch a new manga adaptation subtitled Youshoku no Nekoya in the June issue of Monthly Shounen Ace on April 26 (pictured right).

Seven Seas Entertainment and Yen Press licensed the light novel and manga adaptation in English in November 2018 and 2019, respectively. The fifth novel volume and fourth manga volume shipped on February 26 and March 9.

My hype is immeasurable.

This is one of those shows that I absolutely loved despite most others not seeming to care for it much. The pacing and writing of the interesting world and characters despite each one only getting so much time, on top of a beautifully wholesome and relaxing vibe, reminiscent of going to a wonderful little eatery and observing all the regulars while becoming one yourself...
I truly hope this second season can deliver more of the same, soul soothing goodness.

The first season, while having bits of wholesomeness here and there, has raised so many drop flags that I never thought of it getting a continuation. Kinda disappointed that others don't get the same treatment, but I'm adding this to PTW anyway.

Well, i liked the first season. For sure, in this second season, i'm in.

pretty epic stuff
interesting seeing the studio change too, Studio OLM have made some solid shows thats for sure
we seriously need more food-themed isekais though

This is baffling. I dropped the first as it was formulaic, predictable and boring, and I tend to like slice of life.
It's interesting to see people who enjoyed it, as I didn't imagine there'd be any, but it might be survivor bias.

I thoroughly enjoyed season 1(kuro is best girl I will fight you on the street over that) so i'm really looking forward to season 2

Unexpected, but the first season was pretty comfy. Into the PTW pit it goes.

I have never heard of this before. I will have to check it out for sure. I always enjoy food anime. They always make me hungry though watching them.

Been a long time since I watched season 1. Will watch season 2.

This is mega-unexpected, but the original was super cute, so I'm looking forward to it ( ๑˃̶ ꇴ ˂̶)♪⁺

4 Years Later A New Season

Apr 24, 2021 12:43 AM by AnimeLoverMinami

I was unprepared for this... Another one of those animes that i wished to have a 2nd season but had low expectations of it happening

I'm honestly baffled as to how there can be a second season considering there's hardly any content left after what the anime covered, at least as far as the light novels go (which it adapts). Is this just going to be a bunch of anime-original content?

The market has it's own opinion, generally independent of what's best creatively.

Never thought that this would get a second season. I enjoyed the first season a lot. It's going to make us hungry once again while watching.

Great news. I love the first season.

Apr 23, 2021 7:24 AM by Magito

Knowing this made my day! I spent such a nice time watching this anime, I can't wait to know when this second season it will be released! ♥

This was totally unexpected, but I do welcome this news, though.

The first season was simple and relaxing, definitely a hidden gem of the Summer 2017 list (it also had one of my favourite ED songs in all of 2017, too), so I do look forward to seeing what the second season has to offer this time around. =)

Yes I want more my slice of life isekai cooking eating shows.
Can't wait for more.
