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.

Support Shibai and Friends by Aisha Anime


An independent artist's project, who wants to bring her drawings to plush form! If you remember reading mabout my favourite stalls at BUCK 2014 they included a talented plush maker called Pulsefire Kitty, the same creator has ventured to do her own project.

Chrissy is an aspiring plushie maker and quite talented and successful, however a lot of her plushies require the man power to make such detailed beauties so she can only make so many in such time and at a high manual labour cost. 

Since of copyrights she can't mass produce HOWEVER this is different for her own characters, she has made a band of animals headed by the cute Inu Shibai. Shibai the dog, along with his friends, aim to fill the world with cute animal characters that will brighten up your day!

Support independant artists like Chrissie who is now trying to mass produce Shibai to give us her cute designs at an affordable price.

McDonald’s Korea now serving up Hello Kitty Plushies in cute Sanrio costumes by Aisha Anime

Hello Kitty has been quite the busy kitty recently celebrating her 40th birthday. Earlier this year she featured at a fashion cat walk in America and then making rounds at theatres in Japan dressed as characters from Rurouni Kenshin. Now she has popped up in Korea McDonald’s in dressed up as some of her fellow Sanrio mates. Check out the cute kitty after the jump!

Apparently this isn’t the first time Hello Kitty has cosplayed for McDonald’s Korea. In 2013, she did a crossover with the fast food giant and dressed up as the iconic characters of the McDonald’s gang.

This year, Hello Kitty is back to please her Korean fans in adorable mascot costumes of her Sanrio friends.

If you’re in Korea, now’s your chance to grab these limited edition Hello Kitty plushies while stocks last (do note that each customer can only purchase two plushies at one go). By the looks of it, these plushies are probably flying off the counters since they’re so irresistibly cute!
