The official Twitter account for the television anime adaptation of Ren Eguchi and Masa’s Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill (Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hr Meshi) light novel series announced on Saturday that Yuuma Uchida will perform “Happy-go-Journey,” the show’s concluding theme song. Yuuma Uchida is one of the Voice Actors of the anime adaptation, but it turns out his singing voice is just as golden and charming as his voice acting!
Other actors and actresses who will be joining the cast of campfire cooking include:
- Yūma Uchida (the voice of Ash Lynx from Banana Fish) as Mukouda (Mukouda Tsuyoshi)
- Satoshi Hino (the voice of Daichi Sawamura from Haikyuu) as Fel
- Hina Kino (the voice of Young Hinako from Ride Your Wave) as Sui
- Maaya Uchida (the voice of Chisato Mera from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) as Ninrir
In January 2023, the anime will be broadcasted on Tokyo TV and other stations.
MAPPA’s anime is directed by Kiyoshi Matsuda (RE-MAIN, Kakegurui season 2, Uchitama?! Have you seen my Tama?) Michiko Yokote (Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin, xxxHOLiC, Shirobako) is in charge of the series scripts, and Nao tsu (BEASTARS both seasons) is in charge of animating Masa’s original character designs. The music is written by Masato Koda (KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this great planet!!, Domestic Girlfriend), Kana Utatade (KanadeYUK), and Kuricorder Quartet (tsuritama).
The light novel series and K Akagishi’s manga adaptation are being released in English by J-Novel Club, and the plot is described as follows:
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…!
In 2016, Eguchi began publishing the novels on the “Shosetsuka ni Nar” website, and Overlap is now publishing the novels in print.
