Infinite Stratos 2 Café

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

When I was in middle school I had kendo classes during PE class! I still remember the first time I was swinging the bamboo sword around… I felt like a kendo master!! I also remember the equipment being really heavy though… ^^;

But anyway, today I went to visit the Infinite Stratos 2 Café currently taking place at the GSC-Tetsujin Café!


==================================
Infinite Stratos 2 Café
Dates: 29th October – 17th November 2013
Location: Good Smile x Karaoke no Tetsujin Café
Details: http://www.gstjcafé.jp/theme_café/2501/
==================================

I also brought these two along to enjoy the café with me!

Nendoroid Houki Shinonono and Nendoroid Cecilia Alcott – both Nendoroids released by Phat! Company! Another one of the characters was revealed as a prototype the other day… I can’t wait for her official announcement! As soon as I hear more I’ll let everyone know! ((o(´∀`)o))

Anyway let’s warp ahead into the café! ☆

I was greeted by this lovely table mat featuring all five of the main heroines! As usual there were also a number of tapestries hanging from the ceiling!


The Infinite Stratos side of the café is on the far end of the café space. The area closest to the escalator is still the KanColle Café!

Obviously you can choose which side of the café you want, but you’re also free to look at the displays on either side no matter which you choose! ♪

Along the walls you’ll find a huge set of scene cuts from the most famous scenes of the anime! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

The customer notebook can be found on one of the tables near the center of the café! Be sure to leave your own note if you visit! ☆


Everyone who visits is free to page through and have a look at all the previous notes, as well as leave their own! There are some amazing illustrations inside!

Anyway, let’s order something to eat! It’s a perfect time for lunch so I’ll be ordering the following! ♪

◇ Cecilia’s Handmade Sandwich: This looked too interesting to not try!
◇ Houki’s Japanese Plate: My love for Japanese sweets couldn’t resists!
◇ Schwarzer Regen: Laura is my favorite character! I had to try this!

Other items on the menu can be found at the official website:

By the way, you don’t have to worry about pronouncing ‘Schwarzer Regen’ correctly when ordering!

Kahotan: “I’d like one uh.. Sch..sch…schwaru…
Staff: “One Schwarzer Regen, coming right up!”
Kahotan: “Ah, yes. Thanks!”

The staff will figure it out if you kind of say it! (`・ω・´;) (*true story)

As usual any orders from the café come with a variety of goodies to take home, including place-mats, coasters and badges! (*´▽`*)

I really hope I’ll get Laura’s badge when I try my luck later…!!

But for now, my drink and meal have arrived!


It’s blue… it’s really blue!! My sandwich is leaking blue!!

But before I try the blue mayonnaise, I’m going to start with Laura’s ‘Schwarzer Regen’ drink…


It’s delicious!! ♥♡

A mix of cola and lemonade with a cherry! The cherry made me rather happy!

The lemonade tends to sink down to the bottom of the glass a bit, so I recommend a good stir before drinking! Definitely a drink that suits my tastes! ♪

Anyway… time to move onto the blue sandwich!!
Cecilia looks rather excited that I’m trying it…!


Nomnom… ( ゚д゚) Ah!

It tastes like a tasty, normal sandwich! (I mean that in a good way!)
It’s definitely not as… impactive as the Strawberry Oden I tried the other day…

The sandwich also includes cheese, tomato, egg and ham… making it both filling and delicious! ☆

The sandwich also comes with some crispy potato chips! I think the Schwarzer Regen drink goes very well with it! (・ω・*)

After I had finished my meal I called the staff back for them to bring my dessert. While waiting I had a little look around the café…


There was a Laura-styled bike on the stage!

I’ve never been on a bike like this, but after seeing this one I really want to!! I don’t use bikes much, so I think I would rather make my laptop or iPhone into Laura style instead though!

Dessert has arrived!

Two daifuku and three colored dango! Plus some Japanese tea! By some strange twist of fate the dango stick was the same size as Houki’s hand for holding her fencing stick! ♪


Unfortunately it was a bit too heavy for her to hold… (; ・`ω・´)

Anyway, time to eat!!

First off the dango… they were soft and delicious as dango should be!! Drinking Japanese tea and eating dango kind of got me feel like Spring had come early!!

Which daifuku should I eat first… red or white…?

Hey! What’s that Cecilia is holding in her hand?!


The coins to get my badges! I completely forgot!

I ordered three products from the menu which means I get three spins of the capsule machine! ☆

All I wish for is at least one Laura!! Give me on Laura!! (`・ω・)っ


Yay!!! I got Laura!! She even matches with the coaster I received! ★
I also got Kanzashi and Houki badges to boot… not to mention Houki is wearing a swimsuit… (ΦωΦ)

A combination of cute girls, mecha and food!
