LOS ANGELES, CA, June 26, 2023 — Los Angeles’ popular anime-themed food operation on wheels, Okamoto Kitchen, announces the release of a teaser trailer for their upcoming ten-part Original Video Animation (OVA) inspired by the real-world experiences of co-founders Gerald and Chizuru Abraham.

About the series: The 25-minute OVA series tells the story of Haru Umesaki, an optimistic girl from Japan who immediately finds herself embroiled in an odd world of competing food truck teams and their eccentric band of owners in Los Angeles. Joined by Chizuru, the cooking mastermind behind Okamoto Kitchen, the hopelessly un-suave Mickey, and an unusually meditative canine companion named Honey, each two-to-three-minute episode follows Haru as she navigates a madcap menagerie of hopelessly out-of-fashion Japanese gangsters, preening idol girls, and provocative mature ladies, all seeking their next favorite meal on wheels.

Creative talent: Okamoto Kitchen has partnered with animation studio Magic Bus (Lupin The 3rd Part IV, Death Parade, Black Clover), Studio Nine Lives (Pokemon: Sun & Moon, Haikyuu) alongside seasoned anime voice actress and director Cristina Vee (Sailor Moon, Hunter X Hunter, League OF Legends), who lends her exuberant personality to the main protagonist, Haru Umesaki. Other voice actors in this project include:

Allegra Clark (Jujutsu Kaisen, Granblue Fantasy, Street Fighter 6), Faye Mata (Kakegurui, Love Live!: School Idol Project, Tekken: Bloodline), P.M. Seymour (Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail) and Griffin Burns (Attack on Titan, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure).

History: Okamoto Kitchen ran a Kickstarter campaign successfully funded in 2019 for $65,000 to create this ten-part Original Video Animation (OVA). To see the complete Kickstarter campaign, visit: Kickstarter:OkamotoKitchenAnime

Okamoto Kitchen is a Los Angeles-based food truck specializing in Japanese comfort foods, founded by Gerald and Chizuru Abraham in 2015.
