Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The days are slowly getting warmer, but at the same time the pollen in the air is getting worse and worse, I’ not sure which I prefer! But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the ongoing Kanmidokoro Mamiya KanColle Cafe – as I heard rumors a giant Rensouhou-chan was visiting! ヽ(=´▽`=)ノ

– Kanmidokoro Mamiya –

Dates: 11th February – 30th March (New Menu started on 4th March)
Location: GOOD SMILE x Karaoke no Tetsujin Cafe
GSC Tetsujin Café Site: http://www.gstjcafe.jp/


With the news of a giant Rensouhou-chan as well as a new menu, I decided to specially leave myself hungry to head out and really enjoy some food at the GSC-Tetsujin Cafe! (`・ω・´)

The first thing anyone will notice when entering the cafe…

… is without a doubt this giant Rensouhou-chan!! This Rensouhou-chan was of course also on display at WonFes, giving fans an easy find their way to the WHL4U booth! However, the entire body was too large to fit inside the cafe, so the cafe version only features the head! (;・∀・)

Ah, hold on a second…

The turrets… they’re lit up!! ( ゚д゚) I didn’t even know that feature existed!
There is more to giant Rensouhou-chan than first meets the eye!

On the left side you’ll also see there is also another size of Rensouhou-chan… this one is the perfect size for hugs! (*´▽`*)

*Please note Rensouhou-chan is only for display purposes…
he is not really available for hugs. [>▲<]

He looks so comfy and in place sitting on the cafe chair here… It almost looks like he’s about to press the call button in front of him!

( ・∀・) “Take a closer look at his hands!!”

We’re joined today by Kimuraya from the planning MD team!

His… hands? (`・ω・´)

Oooh! It’s like he has kitty paws!!

( ・∀・) “We put quite a bit of effort into him, so be sure to take a look if you visit!”

He’ll be up on the stage for everyone to enjoy! ♡ (But he’ll be away on a business trip to the Tokyo Big Sight during Anime Japan 2014!)

( ・∀・) “By the way… have you ordered yet?”

Ah! I forgot! I want to try the new menu!!

( ・∀・) “That would be ‘Mamiya-san’s Sweet Bean Jelly Set’ and ‘Yuudachi Kai 2 Fuel’!”

– Mamiya-san’s Sweet Bean Jelly Set –

– Yuudachi Kai 2 Fuel –

I’m rather hungry so I’ll also take one Kongou Afternoon Tea Set! (`・ω・´)

– Kongou Afternoon Tea Set –

With my order in place, it’s time for my normal look around the cafe while I wait!

Just as before, the ceiling and walls are covered with tapestries of the half-damage versions of characters! (*´▽`*)

There are also full-size panels of various characters all over the cafe!

Take a look out for your favorite kanmusu and take some photos with her!

The Bathtime Collection Shimakaze and Akagi are both on display!

Just like before, Hasegawa’s plastic models are also still on display!

Once it warms up a bit I want to go out and see some real battleships!
The only big ship anywhere near me is the Hikawa Maru… ゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。

The ‘GSC-Tetsu New Recruit Records’ guest book is available for anyone to read or add their own notes to! ♡

I even left my own little comment in the book…! ( -ノェ-)

Reading through everyone else’s comments is really fun though… the book is overflowing with love from all the customers! You’re welcome to even take the book to your own table and enjoy looking through as long as you like…. just be sure to return it before you leave! ♪

Anyway, it seems my meal has arrived! (`・ω・´)

The photo above shows both the placemat included with Mamiya-san’s Sweet Bean Jelly Set and the coaster included with my Yuudachi Kai 2 Fuel! (o・ω・o)
(I also got a Kongou placemat, but it got completely covered up… (´;ω;`))

Looking at it all from above… it’s quite a lovely view! I think I may have ordered too much though…! ^^;

The Kongou Afternoon Tea Set does come on a stand, but I laid it all out for this photo instead! Let’s take a look at what other goodies are included with items on the menu! ★

– Placemats –

– Coasters –

– Magnets –

( ・∀・) “Just like before, each item on the menu comes with specific extras! Plus the Mamiya placemat features a special illustration made just for the cafe!”

– Mamiya-san’s Sweet Bean Jelly Set –

( ・∀・) “This meal was my idea! It comes from the back that Mamiya has sweet bean jelly in her basket, with strawberry sauce placed in the image of the bow on her head!”

Why did this meal end up having an illustration made for it?

( ・∀・) “Originally this set didn’t include the ice cream you see here…

However, when we were speaking with the publishers to get the dish approved, they asked whether or not we could include some ice cream, seen she is holding some in her main illustration.”

Ah yes… this illustration here! ♪

(You’ll find this panel right at the entrance to the cafe!)

( ・∀・) “The ice cream goes well with sweet bean jelly, matches Mamiya’s character… and to top it all off, they offered to draw an original illustration if the ice cream was included! It all came together to make a great set!”

A lovely story! You can really tell the KanColle producers love their product!!

( ・∀・) “Thanks to them, it became a really memorable menu!”

By the way…. this ice cream goes with the jelly absolutely perfectly! ♡

The dried kombu with the ice cream also goes together really well! The mix of sweet and savory is sublime!

Moving on… let’s try the drink! ♪

– Yuudachi Kai 2 Fuel –

T-this taste!! ( ゚д゚)
It’s so… sweet, yet… mysterious!! ( ゚д゚)?!
*gulp* *gulp* (  ゚ д ゚ )?!

I almost drank all of it at once…

( ・∀・) “It is a rather interesting flavor isn’t it? That’s the violet syrup!!

Oooh!!! Violet syrup!! ( ゚д゚ )
… what exactly is violet syrup?

( ・∀・) “It adds the flavor of the violet flower! The syrup is added to give the drink it’s unique pink gradient! The drink also includes Blue Hawaii, 7up, strawberry syrup, a cherry and whipped cream!”

Violet flavor… no wonder I couldn’t really describe it! (*´Д`)=з
But the combination really is delicious! I recommend mixing it up a bit before drinking! ♪

Last but not least… it’s time for tea!

– Kongou Afternoon Tea Set –

Two plates full of delicious goodies! A really luxurious set! (゚A゚;)

( ・∀・) “It not only looks like a lot… it really is! Plus with all sorts of different goodies!”

The top plate includes three different mini cakes!

The bottom plate includes a maple scone and brownie cake! (´▽`人)♪

Whipped cream and a berry sauce are also included… sure to make any sweet lovers happy!

Once you start eating you really can’t stop…it’s just too delicious!! (*´▽`*)

A truly enjoyable meal!!

But there is still more to come! (`・ω・´)

I haven’t got my magnets yet!!

For each item you order from the collaboration menu, you get one coin to use in the special capsule machines! Each will give you one random magnet!

Here is the collection of goodies I received all stuck to the company fridge! ★

Mamiya and Kongou’s placemats, Yuudachi Kai 2’s coaster and three magnets: Isuzu, Tatsuta and Souryuu!

As soon as I got Tatsuta all I could think of was her saying ‘Tatsuda da yo~’ over and over again. (*´Д`) ♡

Needless to day, the cafe has definitely changed quite a bit, and I’d highly recommend it to any fans!

( ・∀・) “The cafe will be running until the 30th March! There are still opens in reservations for next week and the week after, so don’t miss out!”
