The Good Smile Cafe invites you into the world of magical girls and witches, with their latest cafe theme, the Puella Magi Madoka ★ Magica Cafe, from May 3rd to July 18th.
From the mahou-shoujo-massacre anime, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the Good Smile Cafe has turned into a portal to a magical dimension, where tons of decorations and merchandises plastered and littered everywhere within the cafe, from tables to shelves and even the toilet.
Come immerse yourself into the world of magic here in Chiba, where you might just dine with Kyuubee!
Who wouldn't want to dine with the great Incubator?!
The theme will last for 3 months ending on in July, which is the longest theme to be held by the cafe.
Perhaps its the great reception from the viewers and fans of the show?
Or perhaps its a marketing strategy with each BD/DVD volume being released?
Whatever the reason, don't pass up this chance to view genuine scripts, original character designs and much more from the anime.
I hereby deemed this a holy site and that all followers of the Church of Madoka must make a pilgrimage to this sacred sanctum, where the great savior died for your sins.
To those who would love to stop time and travel to the cafe right now but can't, I hope these images can bring you that much closer to the cafe.
Also added a "Back to Top" button on the bottom left (orange arrow) for easy navigation. Don't know why I didn't add in this feature before *facepalm*
I do not claim to own the following images, as these were pooled together by the resources of Yoshii-kun from other sites and galleries, formatted into a tour layout format for your entertainment.
over a 100 were queuing up just to enter the cafe at one point.
One thing you'd hardly find in my country or most countries for that matter.
official tweeter for those at the back of the line to know what's going on at the front. Information like the status of the store or the estimated waiting time of over 2 hours.
And yes, the back of the line is still waaaaaaaay to the left of this image.
teaser image prior to the cafe opening.
To be honest, I had decided to wait till next (next) week for decent images of the cafe to appear but instead found a bunch of them with a few followers making their pilgrimage just days later. This was sooner than I expected as I thought the cafe would be bursting with customers and getting decent blurry, packed images of humans instead. ( ´∀`)
No Kyuubee Welcome Mat ( ﾟ,_ゝﾟ)
Lots of mystic runes ahead. Hope your fluent in Faust-go.
Yui is still.....floating around since the Nendoroid Cafe theme ( ´∀`)
Lots of Madoka goods sold at the cafe as well. I'd like a Kyuubee shirt to ward off magical girls ^^"
Enter at your own risk.
Tabletops have been plastered with scenes from the series.
They come with 2 sections of the cafe: Mami'd or non-Mami'd ( ´∀`)
・Please do not touch the interior display items in the store.
※Photography of the whole store interior is allowed.
・During congested hours, a 60 minutes limit will be imposed when all orders are ready before leaving within the time limit.
・During congested hours, additional orders will not be accepted.
Script cover design for Episode 1 and 2
Guess 2ch was right about that leaked episode title back on April Fool.
I think customers are allowed to doodle their art here.
Don't be surprised Nendoroid Akemi Homura will be announced anytime soon (hopefully)
Will update this when/if she's added to the cafe.
figma Kaname Madoka might be on display as well in the coming weeks, so I'll add/update that too.
Nendoroid Gumako has arrived! She'll be there at the cafe for public viewing.
Won't you eat some udon with her?
No, its not real. Its an airgun model shaped after a 9mm M9. Its available on Amazon.
This is...well, you can it see for yourself.
On May 18th, the Good Smile Cafe included an exhibit of Charlotte the Witch!
Straight from Mikatan twitter update, this plush doll was thanks to "Yoshida Design".
On another note, the MadoKafe made the news on the ASCII site.
Clear Files and Pillow Cases
A stool to elevate your delicious head as an offering to Charlotte who "hangs" around the cafe ^^.
Don't forget to printscreen yourself when you dothe Mami'd.
More exchange notes
There's something wrong with Seijin-san's eyes.....
figma Kaname Madoka is up at the cafe! Be sure to get a good look of her.
The latest figures and Cheerful Japan charity products, including the 1/1 scale Kyuubee!
You can surely expect more to arrive and be displayed, hopefully the Nendoroid Puchitto Rock Shooter is next, along with recently announced Nendoroid Kaname Madoka Uniform ver.
One particular 2ch user decided to immortalize their experience in hardcopy format, with printed images of photos of the Madoka cafe, turning it into a photo book.
Nendoroid Kaname Madoka. The meal titled, Kyuubee Contract Set, is going for ￥4,000, with 3 items in the package; a Kyuubee Plate, a special tin badge and a reservation number for pre-order figure, Nendoroid Kaname Madoka.
In my opinion, its a great opportunity to reserve and dine at the cafe in one go.
The nendoroid already retails at like, what? ￥3,500-ish?
Wasn't really into the Madoka Craze back when it was still airing, but I did get a little looney when they started butchering the cast, one head at a time. So, I'm not that into getting this nendoroid (limited funds is also another factor). Still, medetashi medetashi...
To keep things orderly and not trouble the neighbourhood with ridiculously long queue which extend around the block, a ticketing system has been introduced, with a time stamp of the expected session for the customer to enter the premises (just check it today. Seems there's even a queue to get the numbered tickets). As of now, quite a few "contracts" have been signed by eager customers in black and blood, in hopes of shaking the hand of the devil himself to seal the deal....
Also, new coaster designs. I soooo want that Kyuubee coaster ^^
"Kyuubee Plate" "Witch's Sweet Obession Dessert"
As you can see, the Witch Dessert dish sold out, all on Day 1.
They've restocked but still getting tweets on it selling out, fast.
・"There's No Way I'd Regret This" (Sayaka)
・"I'll Never Allow That" (Kyouko)
・"That Sounds Wonderful" (Madoka)
・"I'm Not Afraid of Anything Anymore" (Mami)
・"My Best Friend" (Homura)
