Mia Cafe

Maid goes street style

Just a short update on the maid trend in Japan. After the maid cafes sprung up in Tokyo a bit more than a wek ago and got worldwide extensive press coverage, everybody would have thought it will be old stuff in a year or so. BUT…not so at all. Not only are the maid cafes popular as ever with waiting hours up to one hour.

Also many other places sprung up, from foot massage to drinking bars with the staff all dressed up. Shops offer maid costumes not only for party goods but also as a regular fashion. So you don`t need to be real lucky to find girls running around in full dress-up…

Movie: Maid in Akihabara

Maid in Akihabara (めいどinあきはばら Meido in Akihabara) is a 6 episode series that was produced in Japan on 2005 and released on Feb 24, 2006. Each episode ran about 15 minutes, and took place in Akihabara, Tokyo - the cyber city of Japan.

The story begins when a woman, named Saki, tries to find a job to hide from a bar gang, since she had worked at a bar before. She ends up getting a job at a Maid cafe called Meido no miyage (Maid's gift). She is the third maid to be joining the cafe. She is homeless and lives in a 24-hour internet cafe.

Obviously, as a maid in a maid cafe, she has to dress up as a maid, serving otaku customers looking for company and relaxation after, say, a long day of anime shopping or a night of waiting in line to score the perfect autograph to go on the perfect piece of anime/manga/game related merchandise. Needless to say, this world is completely foreign to Saki, but despite some initial discomfort, she tries to make the best of her situation.

Cast: Mako- Saki, 小田切理紗 - Miyabi, 藤田真梨子 - Himeko, Kentaro Nakakura - 根岸肇, Takeshi Yoshikoa - 前野貢, 中倉健太郎 - Hajime, 越村雄一 - 銀角,Andre - 金角.

Running Times: 84 minutes.
