Campfire Cooking in Another World With My Absurd Skill is getting a season 2, as announced earlier during a special event dedicated to the series. There is no further information about the studio at this time, but studio MAPPA did repost the official announcement. MAPPA also worked on the first season. The anime is also known as Campfire Isekai. Akagishi K, the manga artist for the franchise, drew a special illustration:
Kiyoshi Matsuda directed the first season of the series, while Michiko Yokote wrote the script. Sara Sakoe and Nao Otsu were the chief animation directors and Otsu was also in charge of the character designs. Masato Koda, Kana Utatane, and Kuricorder Quartet composed the music. In addition to Yuma Uchida, who voiced Yuma Uchida, the cast also includes Satoshi Hino as Fel, Hina Kino as Sui, and Maaya Uchida as Ninrir. The anime premiered in January and ran for 12 episodes.
The anime is based on the Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill (Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi) light novel written by Ren Eguchi and illustrated by Masa. A manga adaptation by Akagishi K is also ongoing. J-Novel Club is publishing the series in English and describes the plot as:
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…!
