Shonen Maid Shota Crossdressing Cafe

Shonen Maid Shota Crossdressing Cafe

At Ikebukuro based 80+1, rather than ordinary maids, customers will be served by female staff cosplaying boys crossdressing as maids, that is to say girls dressed up as shota-maids.

The event has a backstory based on the “Shonen Maid” manga, to the effect that the poor orphan child is struggling to makes ends meet by maiding (if you’re familiar with Shonen Maid or Kuro-kun you’ll know the pattern).

All sure to appeal to their clientele, which is fujoshi (female otaku); the cafe is actually situated to take advantage of the famed Otome Road fujoshi shopping experience.

The event, a fair, is set to last from the fifth to seventh of December, after which the cafe will return to its usual crossdressing antics.

Via Mainichi.

The latest desperate variation on the standard maid cafe, in the face of what may soon turn from maid boom to maid bust?

    It would just make a bit more sense to let guys work there, or even both genders. So long as they got the prety look right, they should be both androgynous for it not to matter!

    i was disappointed when i found out it wasn't an actual shota ;_;

    also, shota maids don't solely appeal to fujoshi, ya know~

    It's very simple. This is a female dressed as a boy cosplaying a maid.

    "At Ikebukuro based 80+1, rather than ordinary maids, customers will be served by female staff cosplaying boys crossdressing as maids, that is to say girls dressed up as shota-maids."

    You would think with all these questions, that people on the internet have some how lost their ability to read.

    I wish they'd have cafes/resturants like these in the USA. I say that, but I'm sure SOMEWHERE there is at least one, but I mean more popular like at least one in every other city or two. I think it'd be entertaining.

    maybe they're just a bit confused, or in disbelieve.

    Guess something in me snapped and grew wings of light, seeing all that is good in people after reading too much retarded and uninformed comments on various sites.

    I find it sort of flattering that people do not bother to "RTFA" - having read Slashdot for a decade, it seems almost fitting. Lately, we've even had some "First Post" posts - those I really dislike, I must admit.

    It comes with the increase in readers; I'm horrified by the recent explosion of Weeaboos myself and "proud "otaku"" myself.

    Soon you're going to get little cliques of haters and that's when the fun really begins.

    I just don't get why people would waste there time on that bullcrap. Whether most choose to believe or not, there are serious readers out there who do like to discuss topics like this. I am amused that this string of comments though.Yay for the people who actual care and pay attention to what they read! OTAKU FTW!!!

    the character is actually a boy but the actual model/actress in real life is a girl. It's not that easy to find actual naturally looking girlishly men.

    DAMMIT! The headline was promising and I was hoping it was a guy maid cafe ;_; You crushed my dreams, crushed them so hard...

    Oh well, does this mean there's a chance one of those 'butler' (the correct term would be valet, dammit!) cafes are gonna have some female butler events? i.e. temporarily bringing in some female staff to do the butlering... :-3

    @kenjiharima

    What? I couldn't make sense of a word you said. "Cosplay a man as longs as it's a girl or woman". Okay, so it's okay for a female to crossplay as a man. Is it okay for a man to cosplay as a man..? And... you don't like the idea of a trap? Now that's just confusing, it can work both ways, but it usually refers to a boy crossplaying as a girl. So... what you *don't* want is a guy crossplaying as a girl, pretending to be a girl who's cosplaying as a boy..? Jeez.

    @Detailoid
    Fear not! Swallowtail has been around for at least a year now. It's a pity they were booked out well in advance last time I went, maybe I'll make it this time.

    I don't know know how wide-spread it is, but some Japanese women are afraid of men, and I imagine that may be a part of the appeal, that this is truly fiction, and that the nerds can lust away as much as they desire since it's all just make believe anyway, and has no chance of crossing into potentially dangerous territory.

    I remember some documentary about those all-female theatre groups in Japan some decade ago, the actresses who permanently got assigned to be male role actresses got tons and tons of female fans, tons of roses and other gifts from them, without it ever being considered gay. The female fans were attracted to them not because they were female (their female-female co-actresses barely got any gifts in comparison from girls), but because of their male persona, and that in some cases being seen as better than real men (the stereotype of 'dreamy' men vs real men, that is). "Harmless", "pure" and "healthy" crushes.
