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
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!
