campfire cooking in another world

The isekai fantasy of Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill is getting ready to come back for more. Season 2 plans are officially under way for the anime adaptation of writer Ren Eguchi and illustrator Masa’s light novel series, and new illustrations made their way online to celebrate the news.

We’ll have to wait for further details. For now, check out the illustrations by director Kiyoshi Matsuda and original novel illustrator Masa below.

The series, which is being animated at MAPPA (Chainsaw Man), premiered back in January 2023 and is streaming on Crunchyroll. Kiyoshi Matsuda (RE-MAIN) is 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…!
