SUNRISE Inc. announced the simulcast delivery of their upcoming anime Isekai Izakaya: Japanese food from another world to be worldwide and now revealed its details. It will be available in 196 countries with multi-lingual subtitles.
The first episode of the series premiered on Thursday at a media press conference held in Tokyo, Japan. At the press conference, Shin Sasaki (Managing Director of SUNRISE), Atsushi Umesaki (Producer of SUNRISE) and Emi Tsubakiyama (Executive Office, Gurunavi, Inc., Japan’s largest gourmet and restaurant guide and series’ production committee member attended as speakers.
Producer Umezaki admitted that drawing food is very difficult and that the chief animation director had a really hard time with the coloring and special effect for the food. “It is way more difficult that drawing Gundams!”, he told. They tried to pay attention to all details like each water drop of the beer glass as well as sound effects (e.g. sizzling food) in the hope that the audience will enjoy the series and all the dishes appearing in it.
