The story takes place in a 50-year-old corner-shop restaurant called Youshoku no Nekoya, close to the office district. The shop has an ordinary nameplate with a cat on it at its door, but once a week, during the Special Sale on Saturdays, the door will connect to another world. The customers coming through that door couldn’t be more different. They all are from different places, cultures, and races. The charm of this strange restaurant is that they all can taste the cooking without discrimination in a mysterious atmosphere. The story is a heartwarming display of connection that is not tied to where the customers are from. Some of them might even be a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
Onishi said, ‘Just to know that this work is about food already makes me excited!! The sight of other worlds is also beautiful and to see what kind of food and what kinds of characters will appear in the anime make me look forward to the anime as a viewer as well! I will portray the strange but cute Kuro-chan with great care!”
