In addition, a special live broadcast commemorating the anime adaptation will be distributed on MAPPA’s official YouTube channel from 19:00 on November 3.

In addition, the PV will be shown for the first time and the cast of Ningiriru, the goddess of winds, will be announced during the program.
Comment by Yuma Uchida (Takeshi Mukoda)
The concept of skills has become familiar to a lot of people these days, but if you wonder what kind of outrageous skill it is, you would never guess it is online supermarket. What kind of outrageous skill is Net Super? I was taken by surprise. I remember how excited I was when I was chosen for the role because the theme of the film was cooking.
In this work, you are not reincarnated into another world and play an active role as a brave warrior or a helper, but rather you travel around the other world at a leisurely pace, making it a relaxing work. And above all, the food in this work looks delicious. We hope you will relax and enjoy this work as a healing experience in your daily life.
Satoshi Hino (actor playing Fell) comment
Otherworldly Wandering Meals is a very interesting and heartwarming work, so I was very happy when I was chosen to play the role of Fell!
At the same time, when I heard about the casting to work as a voice actor together, I was convinced that this would definitely be a fun place to work (laughs).
Fell’s charm is his dignity and strength, as well as his naughty cuteness that he shows in some places (laughs).
Don’t miss the way he munches and the expression on his face when he first tastes the various dishes Mukoda prepares!
The charm of Otherworldly Wandering Meals is the friendly interaction at mealtime!
Every time I see the power of good food, I realize how great it really is. I myself feel happy when I am acting! I am sure that everyone who watches the anime will become the same feeling!
Comment from Hina Kino (playing the role of Sui)
Sui is a baby slime, a very cute character with a soft body! I ad-libbed in the middle of my performance to give her a slime-like quality that is different from that of humans and animals. There are so many delicious-looking dishes in this work every time! I have always loved gourmet food, so I am very happy to be a part of this work.
I hope you are looking forward to the broadcast!
Kiyoshi Matsuda (Director) comment
My name is Kiyoshi Matsuda and I am the animation director.
The production site is sincerely struggling to reproduce the charm of the original novel and manga in the anime.
Not only the characters, but also the cooking scenes are being created with a lot of energy!
We are ready to deliver an anime that will make your stomach growl when you watch it.
Whether you are a fan of the original or a newcomer to the show, please look forward to it even though it will not be broadcast for a little while longer!
Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill is going to be an anime!
When I was told that the story was going to be made into an anime, I didn’t really feel like it was real, but as more and more materials were sent to me, I slowly began to feel that it was really going to be an anime.
I am truly grateful and honored.
It is thanks to all the readers who have always supported us that we have come to be asked to make an anime.
Thank you so much!
I am also very grateful to the illustrator, Mr. Masashi, who brought to life characters that were only in my imagination.
I would also like to thank Mr. K. Akagishi and Ms. Momo Futaba, who are in charge of the comicalization.
I would also like to thank the production team who are creating the animation with enthusiasm.
Awe, the production is by MAPPA, a company that has produced many high-profile works.
My anticipation for the anime adaptation is even higher!
I can’t wait to see Mukoda, Fer and Sui in action.
Please continue to support Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill.
And by all means, please watch the anime!
