posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat at Tokyo Ghoul's Anteiku cafe? Fans of the series in Tokyo will be able to stop by a real-world version of the cafe on the grounds of JR Shibuya Station from July 1 to July 31.
The cafe will promote the live-action Tokyo Ghoul film, which will premiere on July 3 at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, July 7 in Berlin, and July 10 at the Marunouchi Piccadilly theater in Chiyoda, Japan before its wide theatrical release in Japan on July 29. Funimation has licensed the film and plans to release it theatrically in North America in Japanese with English subtitles. The film is planned to screen in 23 countries outside Japan.
In the manga and anime, Anteiku is a neighborhood cafe operated by ghouls. In addition to maintaining its front as a cafe for humans, the shop also provides aid for ghouls in the area and helps maintain feeding for those who eat humans to survive. Protagonist Kaneki works at the cafe, where ghouls are only able to consume coffee.
The real-world version of the cafe will serve normal Japanese cafe fare, including original coffee and other drinks. Human patrons will be able to eat three different types of mixed sandwiches. Prices will range from 300 to 340 yen (about US$2.70 to $3.00) for both the drinks and food. Advance tickets to the film will be available for 1,400 yen (US$13).
In addition to offering food and drinks, the cafe will display film props and costumes and screen promotional videos.
