You got to love Japan if not just because of its interest in cafes. The country has a bit of a sweet tooth, and Japan has opened lots of cafes to meet the needs of busy workers and wide-eyed children. For anime lovers, they can even shell out for a warm scone and coffee from various themed restaurants from around the country. And, now, Fairy Tail will be joining series like Dragon Ball and Mobile Suit Gundam when its own special cafe opens.
Starting tomorrow, Fairy Tail will be teamed up with Charaum Cafe in Ikebukuro. The cafe will run until February 16 and has a menu that features plenty of anime-inspired dishes. Drinks like Natsu & Happy Fire Cocktail will be sold as well as Gray & Juvia Ice Mojito. A Ezra and Gajeel Berry Smoothie will also be retailed, and creator Hiro Mashima has released character art for the cafe to fans’ delight.
If you look at the menu, you can see just what kind of delectable dishes fans can get. There are themed drinks for a slew of Fairy Tail heroes, and there are also full dishes to boot. Mirajane and Wendy each have savory and sweet dishes. Should you be in the mood for healthy dishes, then you can try out a colorful salad served thanks to Grey. But, when it comes down to it, the cafe’s pasta options do look mouth-watering.
This is not the only anime getting a special cafe spot in 2017. Starting in January, fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! will be able to visit a slew of Tower Records Cafes in Japan that have been turned into anime restaurants. Each locale will host menus and sell exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! merchandise while they are in operation, so fans will certainly want to get their tickets.
The locations in Shibuya and Osaka will be selling tea cups and saucers imprinted with Yu-Gi-Oh!’s iconic Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Commemorative t-shirts, satchels, and more will also be on sale at the cafes.
Last year, Dragon Ball also got its own cafe as the anime was celebrating its 30th anniversary. The cafes were located in Shibuya, Osaka, and Omotesando. Each locale sold kanji-imprinted lattes and shortcakes which featured Goku riding atop them.
