akiba.jpgJesse Hirsch takes in the cosplay action at Richmond dessert cafe Akiba (3141 Clement), where J-Pop tunes blare through the speakers as anime-themed waitresses take your order. He notes that only a few patrons during his visits were borderline creepy and that it's mostly a convivial atmosphere: "I saw tourists, loners on laptops, giggling teens, wide-eyed gawkers (who may have wanted lap dances) and cosplay kids wearing glitter, crowns and wings." And while there are many crepe selections on the menu, almost everyone just wants a Shibuya honey toast box, which is really just some hollowed-out bread. [Examiner]
