This is some interesting news: Akihabara, home of maid cafes, Internet cafes, butler cafes, general cosplay cafes, etc., is getting a brand new kind of cafe. It's called a Creator Cafe, and it features studio desks, art equipment, computers with Photoshop, high-quality scanners, and a ¥500/hour price (that's about $5.29 USD/hour, these days).


Called the Akihabara Seisakujo, this setup is aimed at mangaka who get tired of working out of their own homes (or perhaps those who get inspired by Akiba people-watching). As Heisei Democracy puts it, it'll probably be “a good place to sequester yourself for a pre-comiket all nighter” for many a doujinshi-ka.


I'm not an artist, but I do love doodling. I bet I could have a lot of fun with a couple of hours in one of these places. How about you?

That's sounds awesome for people who don't have Photoshop and those essentials. Especially when hot maids are serving you tea ;D

This sounds really cool.  I'll have to check it out when I go to Akiba.

I don't think it features maids, but it WOULD be kind of fun for a mangaka cafe to feature staffers cosplaying popular manga characters!

Oh man that sounds so much fun~ I think that'd be an awesome place to just relax and doodle. And it's pretty darn cheap too.
