Yumiri Hanamori (Ai Hayasaka in Kaguya-sama: Love is War) will be voicing Sorao Kamikoshi, while Ai Kayano (Sayaka Saeki in Bloom into You, Alice Zuberg in Sword Art Online: Alicization) will voice Toriko Nishina.
The digital English license rights are held by J-Novel Club, which describes the novel as such:
“Her first encounter with Toriko Nishina was on the Otherside after seeing “that thing” and nearly dying.
Ever since that day, exhausted university student Sorawo Kamikoshi’s life changed. In this Otherworld, full of mystery, which exists alongside our own, dangerous beings like the Kunekune and Hasshaku-sama that are spoken of in real ghost stories appear. For research, for profit, and to find an important person, Toriko and Sorawo set foot into the abnormal.
A tale of two girls’ bizarre exploration and survival, brought to you by an up-and-coming Sci-fi author!”
Otherside Picnic was first launched in 2017, with four volumes released for the series so far.
