Taste the flavors enjoyed by the characters who will serve customers in disguise for a limited time!
Japan’s Gundam cafes are on anime fans’ radar any time of the year, but this fall there are even more reasons to visit, thanks to a new limited time”Gundam cafe costume collection” Event.
The new campaign sees a number of characters from the series dressed in Gundam Cafe uniforms, with the characters chosen by customer votes, which were collected between May 28 and June 30 this year.
The six characters waiting to greet customers at Gundam Cafe Tokyo Brand Core are:
▼ Hathaway Noa, Shiro Amada, Amuro Ray, Quattro Bajeena, Garma Zabo and Banagher Links.
The character panels will be placed at the entrance and in front of the cash register, to give the impression that the pilots are actually working there, welcoming customers to the cafe.
▼ Characters appear in different places in the cafe day to day to keep things interesting.
Customers are not only treated to new looks of their favorite characters, but meals eaten by them in the series as well. Unlike many themed cafes, which feature food and drinks featuring anime series motifs, these new menu items are actual reproductions of drinks and meals seen in the Gundam anime.
