A nekomimi themed maid café in Akihabara will be holding a special “Toradora x Index” event next week, with the menu offering the likes of “Minori‘s Purin” and “Index‘s Donburi”.

The maids are sure to be dressed in appropriate cosplay, plus there is the promise of limited edition presents to customers, and even the opportunity to pay $40 to eat from the “Purin Bucket”, better known here as Minorin’s Raep Bucket.

The café, Cafe With Cat, is located on the 2nd floor of major doujinshi retailer Tora no Ana‘s main Akihabara store, presumably themed to go along with the chain’s cat mascot (not to mention the otaku taste for maids wearing nekomimi cosplay including furry ears and tails).

This sort of themed event is actually not uncommon at the cafe, which has held To Love-Ru, Sekirei and Hidamari Sketch events in the past. These events involve decorating the cafe with posters and art from the series, the maids cosplaying characters from the series, and a special menu themed to the show.

The Toradora! x Index event menu reads as follows (also viewable on the official website):



Taiga’s Sweet Curry – ¥900

We made a Sweet Curry that would be suitable for even delicate tongued Taiga. We tried to make the appearance of the dish invoke “The Handheld Tiger”.


Minori’s Purin / Index’s Purin – ¥600

We prepared purin (crème caramels) based on both of these characters from Toradora! and Toaru Majutsu no Index.

Please try both and compare! ♪


Ami’s Drink – ¥600

We made this to suit the dual-personality character of Ami.

Mix, and a new face of it becomes revealed…


Index’s Donburi – ¥900

We prepared the same donburi (rice bowl) that Index ate, with canned pike and katsuobushi (dried bonito). It’s filled with ingredients that cats love, so Index might have to fight for it, maybe.


Kinako Condensed Milk – ¥600

Mikoto kicked a vending machine, and a lot of this suspicious looking drink came out.

Special Menu Item – Purin Bucket – ¥4000

A purin bucket limited to one serving per day. ♪

Personally, I would like to try the rather unappetizing looking Index”s Donburi (simply because it’s somehow related to Index) and Minori’s Purin (simply because of the raep bucket pictures)…

Attendees to the event are promised an original Toradora! x Index drink coaster, plus a “special item” if a receipt from the café is presented on Tora no Ana’s 1st floor.

The Toradora! x Index event is scheduled to run for 5 days, from Jan. 21 to Jan. 25.

Details are available at the Cafe With Cat Events page, and pictures of past events at the cafe are viewable at their Reports page.

    In all the places I've been one thing is for certain. There is nothing to satisfy you like great tasting food. Yum!

    I wouldn't mind sampling some of Taiga's sweet curry, hehe.

    Makes me sad that we don't have something like this in America, but then I'm reminded how disastrous Western cosplay attempts have been in the past.

    The purin they serve look appetizing. I want to go T_T. 4000 Yen for the rape bucket is quite expensive and they just make one a day only.

    damn it i have to whip myself to learn proper japanese already so i can finally move over!!!

    I really love the details like the description of the taiga sweet curry and the Bucket, it shows that they actually care for the series, and dont just make it a marketing trick with halfassd putting up some posters and dressing up as characters they dont even know (like it would be here if such an event was made for any reasons -_-)

    'Taiga's Sweet Curry'.

    A more fitting sexual food innuendo would be hard to find. XD I happen to like curry myself, and I'd be interested in sampling that. Not to mention taking in the sight of nekomimi maid and themed cosplay...

    Too bad I'm over HERE (U.S.), and they'll be serving it over THERE (Japan). T_T

    I would get the "purin"/creme caramel pictured, though it looks more like ice cream on milkshake or whatever to me... mmmmm strawberry... does that thing even relate to the character at all?... meh, it's the food that counts =P...

    And of course, the purin bucket! Haha, man, love purin!... of course, I can like make it myself at home... for like a fraction of the money.

    Hmmmm... as for the cosplay, I wonder how THAT would turn out... two small (in terms of body size and structure)/loli/pettanko main characters... highly doubt they'll have anything close to that.

    No, what I meant was that since Taiga and Index have child-like body structure (they are short, small, AND flat, not just flat), I doubt the waitresses will be able to shrink themselves.

    Not that rare to find girls who are short as well as flat chested, I've dated several.

    Though where I live also has a nice asian population to it so that does help.

    If you compare them, yeah, they're quite short indeed.

    Wow a ¥4000 purin bucket?? It's mighty expensive, but I have no doubt someone will order it right away since it's limited to one per day.

    Taiga's Sweet Curry and Kinako Condensed Milk highly interests me.

    I don't think I'll be able to look at that Purin Bucket without thinking of a certain male secretion...

    Everything else looks plain...but heh I don't think you go to these stores to for the food.

    Index's donburi looks very delicious to me
    the price is also not too expensive

    although I think the main reason people would want to visit the cafe is for seeing the waitress :p

    Imagine this place being the subject of a Kitchen Nightmare episode. That was all I could think about looking at the captions of the various dishes.

    Pressurized or not, it'd be a cold, bumpy trip.... and looong.

    I'd rather try getting to Mexi-hole by being dragged behind a couple of bulls high on PCP. With one leg tied to each bull. It'd be quicker.
