New Otaku Cafe in London by Aisha Anime

mcm otaku cafe

Otaku Cafe is Afternoon Tea with a Twist, the maids & butlers will bring you cakes, drinks and engage in fun games making it an experience you'll soon not forget. Maid cafes have been on the boom since 2012 and have been appearing in a variety of places as well as London, Manchester and even Scotland.

In 2011 founder, Deanne,  had gone to Maidreamin in Akihabara, after than experience she could not  stop talking about how fun it was and when she came back to London thought that we needed one here. Time went on and the idea was put on a backburner. But then a year and a half ago her and her friends were talking about it again and the idea was resparked but this time they dove in and made it happen, she registered the name and from there plans were made

A Kickstarter was created to get them to MCM and proved successful, however they fell short at MCM as they were not allowed to sell food and drink which is after all is the cafe's sustenance. A few things happened and Sami (Co-founder) left the business. Deanne then decided to create the pop-up cafe outside the convention restrictions, which was recently funded by another Kickstarter.

For Deanne the Otaku culture is never seen as a negative but more as a positive, she love's all things Japan and wants to be able to share this culture in a fun way. Hence the Otaku Cafe was born!

Spanning from the 7th May till the 29th you will be able to book sessions online to attend the cafe and eat some sumptuous food there and play games with the maids and butlers.

Shojo Manga: Japanese Girl’s Comic’s Exhibiting in UK by Aisha Anime

Calling all Manga fans! The first major exhibition of Japanese Shōjo manga in the UK has opened and runs till the beginning of June.

After such great introduction from the Japan Foundation suddenly the popularity of shojo manga has been realised and more avenues have been opened.

Running from Friday 18th March 2016 – Sunday 12th June 2016, House of Illustration hosts the first major exhibition of Japanese Shōjo manga. Theexhibition includes featuring ‘Genga’ (Dash) prints of the pioneering work of 1970s manga artists Akiko Hatsu and Keiko Takemiya, and contemporary artist Yukiko Kai.

Japan’s shōjo manga culture dates back to the post-war years, but only evolved into the broad-ranging and hugely-popular form of today as a result of the innovative work of a small group of artists in the 1970s.

 

The exhibition is running in association with the Kyoto International Manga Museum and The Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

House of Illustration is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-6pm.

The gallery is also running manga workshops for families and teens during March and April.

TALES OF BERSERIA by Aisha Anime

Tales of B

 

TALES OF BERSERIA, the next opus in the epic Tales of series, returns with a host of new characters and new battle system features. Magilou a female witch and self-proclaimed “great sorceress”, and Bienfu a peculiar Malak with a rather unique hat will enter the adventure in TALES OF BERSERIA. The reckless witch and eccentric Malak join the cast alongside the previously revealed Velvet, Laphicet, Rokuro and Eleanor.

With them, a new battle system feature has also been introduced: the Break Soul. This action, specific to each character, permits the player to exceed the normal number of Artes in a combo. When done correctly, a special effect occurs.

Discover among others Velvet’s Break Soul “Consuming Claw”, which enables her to eat an enemy’s ability through her mutated left hand. There’s also Magilou’s Break Soul “Spell Absorber”, which allows the player to cancel an enemy’s action and absorb their mana.
