One of the shows that will be kicking off a new year of anime is Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill, based on the light novel series of the same name by Ren Eguchi. While we wait for it to debut, a new trailer has arrived along with some new cast members and news on the opening and ending theme performers.
The show will kick off with “Seitaku na Saji” by Van de Shop, and episodes will close to the tune of “Happy-go-Journey” by Yuma Uchida. New cast members include Yo Taichi as Agni, Yuko Kaida as Kisharl and Saho Shirasu as Rusalka.
Check out the new promo:
The series, which is being animated at MAPPA (Chainsaw Man), is currently slated for a January 10, 2023 premiere. Kiyoshi Matsuda (RE-MAIN) is on board as director, with Michiko Yokote on series composition, Nao Otsu adapting Masa’s original character designs and Masato Koda, Utane Utatate and Kuricorder Quartet handling the music.
J-Novel Club publishes the novel series in English and describes the story:
Mukouda Tsuyoshi was nothing special in modern Japan, so when he was summoned to a world of swordplay and sorcery, he thought he was ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Too bad the kingdom that summoned him only got him by mistake! Not only was he not one of the three summoned heroes, but his stats were laughable compared to theirs. On top of that, there’s something really sketchy about this kingdom… “Ah, these people are the kind to try and use the Hero,” he realized, and immediately left to make his own way in this other world. The only thing Mukouda can rely on is his unique skill: the “Online Supermarket,” a skill that allows him to buy modern goods in a fantasy world. It’s useless for combat, but if he plays his cards right, he could lead a comfortable life, maybe? At least, that’s what Mukouda thinks, but it turns out modern food bought with this skill has some absurd effects! What happens when Mukouda introduces ridiculously tasty modern cooking to a fantasy world like this? He gets some ridiculous repeat customers begging for more…!
