If your clothes do not rip themselves off your body or you explode in a giant expression of happiness when you are eating something, are you really enjoying what you are eating? Food for thought.

The flow to Isekai Shokudou is so simple that it flows. Sure there is plot, but most of the episodes are one offs that have an overall story, but the individual stories of the characters are something that changes each time and is interesting to say the least. Shokugeki no Souma is like that, too. The story is great and moves at enough of a pace to let you in on all the fun and enjoy yourself. No heavy knowledge of the past episodes also helps.

Liked Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World)? Watch Isekai Izakaya: Koto Aitheria no Izakaya Nobu!

  • Episodes: TBA
  • Aired: Apr. 2018 - ??

Rumor has it that there is a special izakaya, or Japanese pub, called Nobu in Kyoto, the old capital. Going through the door will not bring you to a regular pub, but rather to another world where you don’t know quite what or who is going to walk through the door. Customers come in to enjoy the delicious izakaya dishes and of course the beer. What more could you want?

Major Similarities Between Isekai Shokudou(Restaurant to Another World) and Isekai Izakaya: Koto Aitheria no Izakaya Nobu

1. Izakaya

Something one truly cannot grasp properly is the concept of an izakaya. Sure, they are in anime, but watching them be portrayed via translation and actually visiting one are completely different. Most izakaya menus overlap by about 80% meaning that wherever you go, you are bound to find or know something that you like. That is what these anime show us as they drive our hunger through the roof.

2. It’s Isekai Brah

Isekai 101 is have creatures of other worlds appear (after someone is transported there) and both anime do that quite well by bringing in all sorts of supernatural characters across a spectrum of universes. Dragons, Demons, Fairies, and more await the clientele and store staff. Can they manage to help satisfy all of these unique characters? Watch and find out!

Final Thoughts

That brings our feature on shows that are on air and similar to Isekai Shokudou in particular to a close. Of course, these are not the only two that we recommend from Spring 2018, but these two really fit the bill of being similar, food, isekai, ecstacy over said food and more were things we kept an eye out for. Let us know if you have another that you think would be similar to Isekai Shokudou. Till next time!
