Lately, i 've been reading a lot of stuff, especially reviews, on a new type of shop serving food or drinks, the themed shop. It is said that Japan is full of those, from cafeterias in which you pet hedgehogs (!), to maid cafeterias (waitresses dressed as maids and referring to you as "master"), to the brand new Vampire (!) cafeteria...
What is this? Why don't we "Western Barbarians" get any of that, in our parts? I don't know, i am quite jealous, actually, i always wanted to go in such a place, nya! Has anyone ever experienced a visit in such a place? Don't you people agree we could use this type of facilities in our locale?

I have been to a few, including two different maid cafe chains (Maidreamin and @home cafe), a 'duelling maid cafe' called 'J'eanne D'Arc' (in actuality, 'duel' was just a fancy word for the exorbitant cover charge) and a rabbit cafe.
The maid cafes were a standard cafe - you order food and are waited on by the costumed staff, you also get a polaroid taken with your maid of choice which they decorate for you to keep.
The rabbit cafe on the other hand was a bit different, you paid a cover fee and were able to hold a rabbit of choice in your lap, drinks were self serve (they had water and tea) available.
If you have any other questions I am happy to answer!
I found the website for J'eanne D'Arc -
The decor and costumes were very cool and they had props on hand for use in the polaroid, but unfortunately the staff when I was there spoke no English (not a big deal, but if you are advertising your establishment to foreigners and tourists it would help if you had at least an English menu on hand) and the food was mediocre.
ghaleon: I actually kinda hated the survey

ghaleon: and I LIKE surveys and questionaiires... but too many questions in it had ones where I couldn't select 'don't care', or 'either way', and without middle ground

ghaleon: like one example is the part asking how I think they can improve the kickstarter updates, and I'm like 'I actually barely follow them anymore because I generally don't like drooling over something I don't have yet'

purifyweirdsoul: I believe none of the questions required an answer

ghaleon: I didn't see it mention that, but bullet points nearly always require an answer

ghaleon: I replied, sorry if I sound hostile, I'm not hostile towards you or your thread

ghaleon: just my answer i s something I'm passionate a bout and I'm tired of it being disregarded out of hand when every single example of my opinion being supported has payed back dividends.

Jowy Avilon: Eh, to me you're not coming off as hostile. Just stating your opinion and how you feel on your side of the discussion. Nothing wrong with that.

ikai: But of course, everybody would want to play as old man D, or to be precise, His lookalike... In a proper Igavania, that is, not some third rate 3d reboot, a mobile game, or a pachinko slot machine, lol!
