Akihabara Maid Cafe Adventure

October 4, 2007

Anime Maid Girl

Most people have heard of these places. They are cosplay restaurants or more commonly known as maid cafés (メイドカフェ, Meido kafue) and butler cafés (執事喫茶, shitsuji kissa). Found in cities outside Japan such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Canada, maid cafes are places where the otaku and pervert in us can go have some cake and oogle girls.

The guys over at Moeside.net went on a maid cafe adventure and documented the whole thing. Apparently the strawberry shortcake was good. But that wasn’t the only good thing. If you become a frequent visitor, you can build up credit towards prizes.

And by the looks of it, this cafe loving client happily splurged all of his stored up points. Rapidly releasing them, so to speak, in one quick but satisfying shot.

Cake? There was cake too?!

Hit the jump for what are constitutes a prize for being a loyal patron.

Rice Paddy Paintings Are Pretty: The Harvesting

October 4, 2007

Rice Paddy 2

You remember the rice paddy paintings from awhile back? Well Junior is all grown up now. He is a strapping young lad of a rice field that is ready to be harvested and then eaten. About 900 volunteers participating in a hands-on rice farming tour began the annual harvest of the Inakadate village (Aomori prefecture).

You know that was some good eating. There isn’t much better than when it is cooling off outside and you sit down for a dinner and a bowl of steamy rice greets you. That and some titties, you can never go wrong with titties.

Chopping it down.

Ninja Warrior Hotness

Sasuke Logo

Every once in awhile, something cool happens on TV. Ninja Warrior or Sasuke in Japan is such an item. Guys pit themselves against some incredibly hard challenges such as ascending 100m in 30 seconds but 50m are between two walls and 50m are climbing a rope. There is also the woman’s version of the show called Kunoichi and you get some real lookers on there.

Rie Komiya is such a girl. She has competed twice, once in the 4th Competition in 2004 where she failed on Domino Hill in the Third Stage and then again in the 5th Competition in 2006 where she failed the Final Stage. Interesting note is that she was also unofficially on the sound team for the show Death Note.

Nice.
