Here’s the latest promotional video for the donghua which unveiled its release date along with a new poster.
A talented young cook’s encounter with a hungry girl who popped up in his kitchen changes his ordinary life forever. Dora, a summoned spirit and a truly cute goddess, now calls him master. However, he is not interested at all and tries everything he could to get away from the ghostly figure. As fate would have it, when he becomes a summoner by accident, there is no turn back in life.
For many fans of donghua, this is great news as the series had been delayed since its first announcement in 2018. While Bilibili had been continuously listed the series as part of their annual releases of the Chinese anime lineup since 2019.
