Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased (and hungry!) to announce the license acquisition–both print and digital–of the light novel series Restaurant to Another World by Junpei Inuzuka and Katsumi Enami, the story of a Tokyo restaurant’s supernatural diners that inspired an anime!
“Western Cuisine Nekoya” seems like a typical restaurant on the outside, but it hides an amazing secret: on Saturdays, portals to another world appear that allow all manner of unearthly creatures to sit down for a nice meal. Elves, dragons, or anyone else who wants to sample our world’s cuisine is welcome to partake before returning to their world, sated and ready for their next quest. This lovely light novel series, never before published in English, celebrates even the simplest of our foods as fantastical adventures in fine dining. Bon appétit!
“We’ve really expanded our light novel line this year, and we’re happy to add this charming series to our 2019 releases,” says Seven Seas Publisher Jason DeAngelis. “Restaurant to Another World’s delicious combination of fantasy and food inspired an anime, so it’s a real pleasure to bring the original version of the story into English.”
Seven Seas will publish the light novel series Restaurant to Another World for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in single volume editions. Volume 1 will be released on June 18, 2019 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN.
