YES: Japanese People Still Inventing New Fetishes by Jason Powell

Okay, so let’s pretend you already know that cosplay cafes are nothing new in Japan. These themed restaurants began with maid cafes, featuring cute waitresses dolled up in eccentric variations of Victorian maid costumes who catered to the whims of normally girl-shy otaku customers. Soon after, ladies got in on the trend with the introduction of Butler Cafes, where they could be waited on by anime-haired pretty boys in tuxedos. And now, along comes the Hibari-Tei cafe, whose waitstaff is made up entirely of dudes dressed as waitresses. These men may be even less convincing as women than this picture, but still, the employees interviewed above seem so earnest about how much they enjoy their job, it’s almost hard to make fun of them. Oh, and did I mention there are also cat cafĂ©s now? Thank you, Japanese people, for letting us laugh with you, and not at you.
