After airing earlier this year, MAPPA’s light and fun isekai anime Campfire Cooking in Another World is getting a second season!
The show’s new season was revealed via the anime’s official X (formerly Twitter) account. There, it was confirmed that season 2’s production has been decided, though there’s not much info yet about the new season. Thus, it’s likely that it will take some time before we get a trailer given that it’s still very early into the show’s production.

In case you missed it, Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill is an anime by MAPPA, the studio behind hits like Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man. As with many anime, it’s based on a light novel series of the same name.
This new anime is an isekai, but it’s far from a dark and edgy series like Sword Art Online. Instead, it’s a lighter affair as it follows a Tsuyoshi Mukouda, a 27-year-old salaryman who is transported into another world. There, he discovers that instead of a typical heroic power, his new found ability is called “Online Supermarket” which enables him to order food and all sorts of goods in an online Japanese supermarket. This allows him to cook modern Japanese food which is a delight for many in this fantasy world.
Soon, he begins his journey as an adventurer. There, he meets Fel, a legendary Fenrir who takes a liking to his cooking. Soon, Fel becomes Mukouda’s familiar and joins him on his journey, in exchange for eating Mukouda’s scrumptious food.
