It’s a bit too late to announce now, but a while ago, a friend of mine told me about this. In one of the most fashionable town in Tokyo, Harajuku[原宿], an interesting themed-cafe has opened…this is it, 男子校カフェ[danshikou cafe]. As you can imagine, this cafe is a boys’ high-school style, and all the waiters get dressed as a schoolboy. Simply, I think this is a kind of spin-off of a butler cafe, I mean, for female otakus only. Having said that, the only thing I don’t get it is why this cafe is located in Harajuku. Harajuku is pretty popular among young general people(non-otaku folks). So if this cafe is aimed at female otakus or fujoshis, it should be in Ikebukuro[池袋] or Nakano[中野] where a lot of female otakus shop around. Is this for not only otakus but general people? According to the resourse, the concept of this cafe is a boarding school, so it should be away from the place where a lot of themed cafes are such as Ikebukuro or Akihabara. At any rate, they seem to hire handsome boys only because all the candidates have to pass several interviews…
Umm, I know there are a couple of maid cafes which have a specific theme such as 妹系 or ツンデレ系. So then does that mean there could be the same thing in such a danshikou cafe? Oh no, there has to be a オレ様系[ore-sama-kei], ショタ系[shota-kei], or 小悪魔系[koakuma-kei]? It could be the real Ouran High-School Host Club, couldn’t it?
