TORONTO, ONTARIO - March. 29, 2018 – A Japanese style pub called “Nobu” exists in a back alley of the fictional medieval European city of Eiteriach. When the citizens of this strange world sit down to enjoy some unfamiliar Japanese cuisine, their troubles simply melt away… With over 900,000 copies already in print in Japan, the OTHERWORLDLY IZAKAYA NOBU manga series hits North American shelves in September 2018 through UDON Entertainment.
The series is written by Natsuya Semikawa and illustrated by Virginia Nitouhei. Each volume of this delightful manga is packed with tidbits about both Japanese and German cuisine, for which publisher UDON Entertainment have included a hearty helping of footnotes for fervent foodies.

The anime series is produced by Sunrise, and directed by Katsumi Ono (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Symphogear G/GX/AXZ).
