Ain't Canada grand? Awsome place.

I know maid cafe's are popular in Japan, but is there really a market for that in the US?

If money is to be made legally, then I suppose it will happen.

For a moment I was thinking it would be worth the two hour drive, although it might not be worth the chance of getting mugged.

Too bad they wont look as good as anime Razz unless they get some really hot girls.
But i have never been to Canada, so i can't say if the girls over there are fine or anything.
But dang i like anime/manga continuing to be influential even in Canada.
I would pay double tip every time i went there Smile

Heh, probably not. Laughing

Anime and manga seem to be popular though. So I gotta wonder.

Hope it fails hard enough for no one to ever think about bringing this outside of Japan again.

Additionally, some cafés estabish tie-ins with anime or manga franchises, including a Gundam Café...


Do the waitresses there dress up like giant robots?


I guess that's cool.

You're serious? If so, why may I ask?

I'm not really into maid cafes but it still sounds like a cool venture. I hope it works out better then the other one in Ontario.
