There is a certain restaurant in the first basement level of a multi-tenant building in one corner of a shopping street near the office district. The historical 70-year-old restaurant, marked by a sign with a picture of a cat, is called "Western Cuisine Nekoya." This restaurant looks completely normal through the week, but on Saturdays, it opens in secret exclusively to some very unique guests. During these hours, doors in various areas of a parallel world open to allow customers of many different races and cultures into the restaurant.

The only thing i can say currently is that the animation is nice, some characters feel like rip offs from other animes, but works with their setting. When i first started watching, i thought it was a nice otherworld story anime and actually had high expectations for it. After the fourth ep, the story seems to just repeat with new characters. A door opens up once every 7 days and they go in and drool over a dish on the chefs menu... thats it.. same thing twice an ep, every single ep.. i was hoping for something more. If i had written this, i would have had the chef transported to the other world and become a traveling chef who has to adapt to using ingredients in the new world.
What an odd Anime. The main character is not a man, a woman, or any sort of beast. The main character is the food that is served to the various patrons to this restaurant. And the story revovles around that interaction. I have just finished episode 5 of the dub, and so far there is nothing to spoil. I do wish they cover some of the backstory of this restaurant. Like the story behind the portal door. How it chooses its patrons. Unfortunately, this Anime is not for everyone. Some would find its slow pace to be a bit borring. But I am finding it quite enjoyable at the moment.
Isekai Shokudou is a show about Japan's cuisine ego.There is a restaurant that opens it's door only once in 7 days in various dimensions.I am highly enthusiastic when it comes to time, dimensions, space, etc and if I started nitpicking on how wrong this system the show is portraying sounds, it would totally kill the great fantasy feeling.The show says that it connects different worlds but it all seems like fantasymagicfuckery... I have yet to see some space cowboys.Every person, or rather said, being gets it's little story behind him. There is this dragon queen, knight on the verge of death, samurai, wizard and lizard... It's like a collection of tales book.And in every book, we have this chef who can't smile. I really hope there is some lore behind him not being able to move his "zygomaticus major" to express his happiness because it hurts to see him smile with only his eyes closing.Mr. Cantsmile is being accompanied by demonic waitress who was homeless because of her origin. He offered her job and she accepted it... that's it.The characters are interesting but apart from the customers which are new every episode... There is so little character interaction.As I mentioned the waitress was homeless, the last we seen of her normal life was when she came to her world and slept on a stack of hay.WHERE DOES SHE LIVE NOWIS SHE OK WORKING ONLY ONCE EVERY WEEK?DOES SOMEONE BULLY MY DEAR HORNED CINNAMON ROLL?I NEED ANSWERSP.S. As is common is Japan animation, half the budget goes on food scenes.
