Eroticized Maid Cafés Cater To New York’s Anime Lovers [Pics]
Manhattan imports a Japanese taste for quirky cafes filled with young Asian women.
Manhattan recently became home to a new Japanese import called maid cafés, an establishment that caters to otaku, a subculture in Japan that is obsessed by manga and anime. The all-female waitstaff at Maid Café are beautiful, young Asian women outfitted in what appears to be clothes from a little girl’s wardrobe. Staff also greet customers with a “Welcome home, master” and generally act cute, servile, and far younger than their actual age.
