Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
The other day I went out to the GOODSMILE x animate café to take a look at what was going on at the…
Himouto! Umaru-chan Café!
Dates: 1st September – 29th September 2015
Location: GOODSMILE x animate Café (Akihabara & Osaka)
Entrance: First Come, First Serve
Today I’ll be showing what is going on at the café! ♪
Let’s start off with a look at the seating!
My table featured Umaru-chan’s outside version and Ebina-chan!
Two characters that definitely make my heart feel at ease! ♡₍₍ ◝(´´∞`｀*)◟ ⁾⁾♡
The tables feature various different combinations of characters, but you don’t get to choose… so you’ll have to see who you end up with!! Here are a few more examples!
– Order from the Menu –
I really don’t know what I should choose…!
Everything on the menu relates to characters or things from the series which makes me want to try each and every one of them! I need to decide between picking the items based on my favorite characters… or picking the food I want to east the most! Not a very easy selection! _:(‘Θ’ 」 ∠):_
The menu features meals, desserts and drinks!
Here is a quick look at what is available for order! ☆
Once you’ve decided what you want, simply select them on the order sheet and hand it over to the nearest waiter! I decided to order the following!
· Pesky Umaru-chan’s Omelette Rice
· Ebina-chan’s Chazuke
· Motoba Sisters Ramen
· This is Paradise ~Umaru Banquet Set~
· Goes with Anything! God Cola
· Energy Drink for a Tired Onii-san
· You’re My Rival! Sylphyn’s Yogurt & Blue Soda
· Hamster’s Cocoa Latte
… time for an Umaru-style Banquet!! (°Д°；≡°Д°；)！
By the way, this time I am not all alone! I have a friend to help me munch down all these goodies!
– Look Around the Café –
While waiting for your order to arrive, you can choose to sit and relax in the Umaru-chan atmosphere, but I would instead recommend getting up and taking a look around at all the things to see in the café! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
Taking a look at the setting photos along the walls will remind you of all the fun scenes from the series!
Other areas are made to recreate places from the series!
Plus various other things you might recognise from the series to look forward to!! There is also a note book that you can write down your messages about Umaru-chan or the café inside! Drawings are also welcome!
Be sure to leave behind a little message!! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
– Time to Eat –
Time flies when you’re having fun! My food arrived in no time at all! Σ(･ω･ﾉ)ﾉ！！
This is… truly a banquet!!
– Pesky Umaru-chan’s Omelette Rice –
The nori has writing on it!!
It’s a little bit hard to see in the photo so I made a gif showing the text and little drawing! ☆ The creamy tomato sauce is delicious, and the meal also has broccoli and other veggies so you can imagine Onii-san shouting at you to have some vegetables!!
– Ebina-chan’s Chazuke –
A cold chazuke dish that is really soothing to eat. The amount of rice was just right and the chicken with sesame sauce makes for a very fulfilling meal! ★
– Motoba Sisters Ramen –
The boiled eggs make up Kirie’s eyes and Bomber’s hairstyle is made-up from wakame seaweed! The amount of oil is just right making for a simple meal but your chopsticks won’t be able to stop! The pork is also absolutely delicious!! ♪
All items on the food menu come with a free clear bookmark! ★
– Goes with Anything! God Cola –
Cola with whipped cream on top! Cream Cola!
Nothing beats the fizzy feeling of cola in a Umaru-chan café!! ٩(๑òωó๑)۶
– Energy Drink for a Tired Onii-san –
The top even features a Taihei with glasses and ahoge! ★
It’s a very light tasting energy drink so it goes nicely with meals as well! I spent too long on the other items, so the cream melted a bit though…
– You’re My Rival! Sylphyn’s Yoghurt & Blue Soda –
It both tastes and looks so refreshing!! ♡
A cute little yogurt is also included on the side as a kind of mini-dessert! The drink itself also include yogurt jelly in it, so drinking through a straw makes for a rather interesting texture as well! (σ・∀・)σ
– Hamster’s Cocoa Latte –
The white stuff is all whipped cream!!
This is some luxurious cocoa!! (/ω＼)
And I haven’t even had dessert yet!
Whipped cream is such a wonderful thing…!
Each order from the drink menu includes a coaster! (・∀・)
The one I wanted most was Onii-san and I was lucky enough to get him! ★
I love the combination of suit and apron!
– This is Paradise ~Umaru Banquet Set~ –
Pudding, ‘Take no Ko’ chocolate biscuits, potato chips, squid nibbles and cheese codfish! What a treat! (*´Д｀)=з
While enjoying all these together, I chatted with my companion about what it must be like to have a sibling… we were both only children!
The potato chips were Sour Cream and Onion flavour!
You can’t stop eating them once you start… *nom* (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nom*
My coincidence, I also got the Umaru-chan clear bookmark as my bonus with my dessert! ♡
– Other Goodies –
Various limited edition items exclusive to the café are on sale near the registers! (・∀・)
– Trading Smartphone Cleaners –
– Printed Marshmallows –
– Glass & Coaster Set –
△ ¥2160 *Reads ‘COLA ONLY’, but can actually hold other drinks!
A selection of trading badges are also available as capsule products!
¥200 for one spin! I decided to give it a try and…
As the anime has gone on I’ve come to love Onii-chan more and more!
A quick photo together with Ebina-chan! ★
Delicious food surrounded by the world of Umaru-chan!
