If you don't know what a maid cafe is how long have you been on this site again...have to say I have never run across doraman sounds odd. Interesting to hear the way the business meetings are. It is really odd to think about those kind of business men talking about some of the odd anime we see. I mean how could a meeting like that come up with say...I don't know...deathnote?
