Japan continues to lead the world in fine cuisine.

I say "continues" not because of its previous anime-based restaurants, of course, but because of the Windows 7 Whopper. Yummers!

That sounds pretty cool... I was sad lately because I never got to go to the Sakura Taisen cafe before it closed, but maybe I can check this out. Gimmicky but fun.

Note: menus are not translated so visitors must be fluent in Japanese.

Goodness, Bandai's got financial issues and they're now doing this? What's next, Gundam Maids?
Rolling Eyes

Best of luck, I guess.
I wonder if kids dads get a Gundam toy with every meal purchase.

Ah, the throngs of fans running in there should make some people lots of money. Makes me sad that we will never ever get something like this. I wonder if they do theme days, like one day of First Gundam, then another of SEED or Victory....

I'd love to go there and have all services related to specifically Gundam Wing since it's the best of all the series.

On the subject of relevant puns, I wonder whether their dishes will contain GM ingredients. They are mass produced, after all.

LOL! I was sort of wondering why the building wasn't, um, cylindrical (sort of like a colony...)

i know a friend that has a major crush on Lady Une and Lucrezia Noin from Gundam Wing. He'd be on those girls in a heartbeat.

I didn't realize that the unofficial Mobile Suit Bars have closed down. I used to occasionally frequent Bar Zeon. The ladies and other customers there were always chill people who were a little different from the stand-offish schmucks one usually encounters in Tokyo.

Oh well, no doubt that this cafe will no be nowhere near as social. I guess it'll be nice to go to once or twice.
