Food Truck Shonen Anime?


Hello all we came across a Kickstarter called, “OKAMOTO KITCHEN.” It’s an up and coming anime about the food truck business here in the U.S. It looks to have a shonen slice of life feel to it with food trucks. Think of “Food Wars with a spin on it. Hungry and excited yet? The main character, Haru Umesaki,  a female Japanese girl is stuck here in the States and becomes a worker on a food truck.


We decided to BACK this Kickstarter project, we’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the anime. This project will bring together a smorgasbord of creative and talented individuals, featuring the art of Takuya Saito (Sailor Moon, One Piece, Dragon Ball Super: Broly), the voice talent of Cristina Vee (Sailor Moon, Hunter x Hunter, League of Legends), the music of Layla Lane (Coca-Cola, Killers) and the story of Mykal Williams (Cartoon Universe) & Rafael Hernán Gamboa (Violet, The Long Take, My Kingdom Come: An LA Gangster Rap Story). Blending the tastes of professional Japanese artists and western writers has given us a very interesting  flavor!


Talk about some diversity in characters too! Looks as though Anime NYC & Crunchyroll are also big supporters. Check out the Kickstarter and become a backer today!!
