If you’re as old as me, you would remember this really old anime on AXN titled Cooking Master Boy. And now, that old cooking anime is back! That’s right, get ready for some nostalgia with this new anime series. And now, the staff have revealed a brand new PV, as well as a new key visual:
The anime will be based on Etsushi Ogawa’s classic cooking manga series, Shin Chuuka Ichiban. Set in 19th century China, it follows a boy named Mao who seeks to inherit his mother’s title of “Master Chef”. To do this, he travels around China to be a better cook.
Itsuro Kawasaki will be directing this new adaptation, with NAS producing the animation. Production I.G, which animated the original, will be working in cooperation with NAS for this new series. Expect the staff to reveal more details in the days to come.
