Why You Need To Watch Campfire Cooking in Another World With My Absurd Skill

Campfire Cooking in Another World With My Absurd Skill is an anime about heroes, sorcery, fantasy, and of course, food! If you’re looking for a new slower anime to watch, then this may just be your new go-to series. Besides the amazing characters, you might fall in love with the anime because of Mukoda Tsuyoshi’s cooking. Mukoda is the main protagonist of the anime series, and because of his absurd, unusual skill that got our attention, we think you deserve to watch Campfire Cooking in Another World too!

Campfire Cooking in Another World With My Absurd Skill is a slice-of-life isekai cooking anime directed by Kiyoshi Matsuda and animated by studio MAPPA. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime and describes the plot as:
When a magical realm looks to summon heroes, they’re sorely disappointed to end up with a mediocre salaryman. Mukoda Tsuyoshi may not be a hero, but this conjuring error has given him a delicious power—Online Grocery. And something about this modern food brings with it unbelievable effects. This easy access paired with his cooking skills will have patrons from across the land coming back for more!

What to expect from the anime?


As the title suggests, Campfire Cooking in Another World is set in another world with goddesses, scary monsters, and adorable creatures. Like most fantasy stuff, some people here also have incredible skills and powers, including Mukoda’s absurd skill Online Grocery. This skill lets Mukoda access an online shop from back in Japan where he can order food and cooking equipment. Since this is another world, the people here aren’t aware of how amazing this skill is, while almost everyone in the modern world is able to make use of it. Even the goddesses make Mukoda buy them things that only exist in our world!


Mukoda’s absurd skills are indeed something else he can cook, bring things anywhere he wants, and even order online and deliver them to the world he is now. But nothing can beat his delicious cooking! Not only will it make you hungry, but it will also make you want to cook – as impossible as it sounds. Mukoda takes us through the step-by-step process of preparing food every day and you’ll probably drool watching the process too! Campfire Cooking in Another World is already a feast to the eyes when you watch it, but when you close your eyes and just focus on the sounds – you’d think it could also pass as an ASMR video (yes, you can really hear the sizzling)!

Big, Fluffy Wolf Obsessed With Eating

Well, he doesn’t really want to be called a wolf since he’s a “legendary monster,” but he does look like one! This wolf – Fenrir is feared by many because he usually threatens people. However, Mukoda is an exception. Because of Mukoda’s delicious cooking, this legendary monster became his loyal companion and even asked him for food every chance he got (I would too if it’s really that delicious!).

The first episode of Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill TV anime premiered on January 11, 2023, in Japan. The first season of the series has already ended, so you can definitely binge-watch it as soon as you’ve read this article! Let us know in the comments if you loved the anime and if it also made you say “UMAI!” as you watch!

BONUS: Previously, studio MAPPA hosted a special stage during MAPPA Stage 2023 with Mukoda Tsuyoshi’s voice actor, Yuma Uchida, preparing food from the series for him and his sister, Maaya Uchida, who also voiced a character in the anime the Wind Goddess Ninrir.
