Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Asuna is wearing the maid uniform of Cure Maid Café! Since the excitement for Sword Art Online is nowhere near cooling down, this café will open on 19 May 2017.
The special food menu will include a sandwich, just like the one Asuna makes for Kirito during the Aincrad arc; Kirito’s special Peperoncino pasta without toppings and for this collaboration there will also be one with toppings that Asuna created when she scolded him, bacon and mushrooms. The menu will also have ‘Suzuran-tei no Konomi no Tart’ from ALfheim Online and the ‘Joi nyuushou cheesecake’ from Ordinal Scale. There is a lot of food that was seen in the series available – or food that looks like it could be from there.
And the drinks! They were modeled after the characters of the series and customers who have downloaded the official Sword Art Online app can order the special ‘Mother’s Rosario’ drink. With every dish you order from the collaboration menu comes one of four exclusive postcards at random.
Of course, the decoration of the café will also be inspired from Sword Art Online!
Goods with a special drawing of Asuna wearing the Cure Maid Café costume will be sold at the venue. The store will sell acrylic key holders or straps, a mug, and a wall scroll. Don’t miss this opportunity! Such a cute Asuna in a maid dress won’t be available everyday.
Venue: Cure Maid Café (G Store Akiba 6th floor)
Event Period: 19 May – 4 June 2017
