.......the hell?!

The Japanese think of EVERYTHING. And anything they don't think of is done by the Chinese (like a Communist commune cosplay restaurant in China).

.........am I an idiot for saying that I'm so curious that I'd actually want to check it out?

But who will play their king, CHAR!?

I would go to this restaurant in a heartbeat, but maybe not till the craz died off.

Oh dude I'd totally go. I'll need to add this to my list of places to go next time I go to japan...

I wonder how they greet their customers.

"SIEG ZEON"

Do they have cosplayers dressed up as Puru? How about Puru 2?
A Haman is fine too.

If I ever get a chance to go to Japan, this is one place on my list of places to go. Sounds fun. Smile

I heard somewhere that they are going to be a floor apart. I hope the Zeon bar is the floor directly above the Federation bar and occasionally drops a table or something down the stairs.

SIEG ZEON! *burp* Keep 'em coming.

Seriously, something like this is ONLY possible in Akihabara. MAYBE I'll go. Maybe.

Bizarrely, the Federation Forces bar is on the fifth floor, above the fourth floor's Zeon bar. Then again, the Zeon Bar is above a toy shop and a maid café….

If everything goes according to plan, I'll be going to Japan in mid-October. This will defiantly be on my to-go list.

Five bucks says Gackt was the guy who cosplayed as Ghiren Zabi. I wonder if they give you a discount if you come in cosplayed. Very Happy
