These Maids Don't Inspire Despair

I would totally go to this.


The Pinafore Maid Cafe in Akihabara is well-known for being close to Akiba station and for its frequent tie-ins with games, anime, and other products. And the latest of these? Well, suffice it to say, it's...” desperate”?

Yes, it's Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei, and Pinafore has been turned into “Zetsubou Restaurant” (Despair Restaurant), with a “desperate menu and of course, cosplayers!
I believe what we have here are Meru (pigtails), Chiri Kitsu (parted hair), Abiru Kobushi (aka the tail-puller), Harumi Fujiyoshi (yaoi fangirl), and...well, I'm not sure about the last one, but I'm thinking it's Nami Hitou (“don't call me 'normal!'”).

So, which wacky woman would you want to have wait on your table? Or would you prefer that Itoshiki-sensei himself served you?

Itoshiki-Sensei!  But I would take any of them, I just want to go!  

(I kinda <3 themed restaurants ...)

I think the last girl is suppose to be Matoi Tsunetsuki, the "deep love" stalker.
I think I'll take Harumi. At least it would be an interesting conversation.
It would only be a matter of time before meeting Mr. Shovel if you went with Chiri.

Abiru why?
1 Unlike most people i can actually stand being with attention freaks
2 i love history so it would be interesting to hear what she has to say about her past live
3 the women cosplaying her is cute XD
The only thing i can`t stand is the tail pulling leave the cats and dogs alone please!.

Dig Deeper into Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
