Mappas Next Anime gets its First Trailer! Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill!

The fall season of anime is well underway so it means we’re beginning to get some of our first looks at the series we can expect this upcoming winter season. Coming this January we get a new series from Mappa titled Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill, based on the light novel of the same name of course. You can always tell when a series is based on a light novel when the name in and of itself can fill a whole episode of anime.

The upcoming anime series is being directed by Kiyoshi Matsuda (Kakegurui Season 2), Nao Otsu (BEASTARS) is working on character designs, and Michiko Yokote (Cowboy Bebop, Rurouni Kenshin) is doing the series composition. It’s really looking like an all-star cast for another hit MAPPA series.

View the new trailer below and read on to learn more about the series!

The trailer introduces us to a new character known as Ninrir, who will be voiced by Maaya Uchida (Melty from Rising of the Shield Hero). She will be joining the previously announced Yuma Uchida (Megumi in JUJUTSU KAISEN) as Tsuyoshi Mukuoda, Satoshi Hino (Rengoku in Demon Slayer) as Fel, and Hina Kino (Alas Ramus in The Devil is a Part-Timer!) as Sui. You can view the character art for all 4 below!


The light novel series of the same name by author Ren Eguchi and Masa first releases online in 2016 and was picked up by Overlap for a physical release beginning in November 2016. Since then there have been twelve volumes released with a manga adaptation that began on March 2017 and is illustrated by Akagishi K. The manga based on the original source has published 8 volumes, while the light novel was even popular enough to get an additional manga spin-off illustrated by Momo Futaba in August of 2018. So it’s safe to say the series has been mega popular!

About Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill:

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…!
