Let me ask you a question, who invest a huge amount of money in a Gundam Cafe? and what`s more who would go to a Gundam themed Cafe? Well the answer is the Japanese, that`s who would.
Anime is amazing and when you think anime you think of lots and lots of different titles. But one that everyone knows is Gundam. Gundam has ran for so many years that people of completely different generations are able to enjoy it with no problem. Well Japan has a way of taking advantage of the fact that Gundam and other anime in general are so popular by creating cafes based on the shows. One such cafe is the Gundam cafe located in the bustling anime and tech heaven of Akihabara, the Gundam cafe draws hordes of people every single day. Just like Maid Cafe`s, Arcades and Manga Cafes these themed cafes appeal to the otaku culture of Japan. And once you enter the cafe you can see why; everything from the staff and menus to the toilets are gundam themed. Which can be a shock to the system if you are only just a little bit into the show.
Just like with every other themed cafe in Japan there is a seating charge and you must purchase at least 1 drink, which are all gundam themed of course. So once you have queued for an hour, had a pretty cocktail themed after a character and had a strange version of Omu-rice that comes with a laser sword stuck in it; what does this cafe offer? Well there are a few things, there are special episodes of the Gundam shows beening showed regularly, there is also as we see in this video a special shop that sells all things Gundam. This includes the most sort after item which is the Gundam models which are almost like the “AirFix” models of the 80s and 90s. All in all the Gundam cafe is a good experience to say the least, if not a little too expensive. So don`t go there expecting a quick, cheap meal.
