This is one hell of a cute anime!
Restaurant to Another World (Isekai Shokudō) is about the staff and customers of the Western Cuisine Nekoya Restaraunt.
However, there is more to this restaurant than meets the eye. Six days a week this restaurant operates in the modern world, but every Saturday doors to the restaurant appear in a magical fantasy world.
At the time of writing, there are five episodes available with more on the way. Each episode is split into two different stories. With each story, we learn not only about the new characters but we also are shown more of the fantasy work and the history of the Western Cuisine Nekoya Restaraunt.
The animation is bright, colourful and full of life, and that is not mentioning the food. Word of warning, do not watch Restaurant to Another World on an empty stomach, you will suffer major hunger pains. Trust me on that.
My favourite character is the darling demon Aletta, who works as a waitress at the restaurant. She is sweet, gentle and well mannered. Not to mention cute!
A close second is Tenshu, the chef and owner of Western Cuisine Nekoya. A firm but a fair man with a compassionate side. He inherited the magical eatery ten years ago after the former manager, his grandfather, passed away.
The story isn’t just about food, but rather how food makes us feel. How it can cheer you up and remind you of home. How it can give you strength to face the tough challenges life has to offer. With each character the show introduces, we are shown the different ways food helps us to live, in more ways than one.
Restaurant to Another World is cheerful with a lot of heart and a few laughs are thrown in for good measure. I am head over heels in love with this show. If you want a fun show that leaves a good taste in your mouth, this is the anime for you.
Enjoy your meal!
