Tsukiuta -The Animation- x Animate Cafe at Ikebukuro! Part. 2

Oh, well. Finally!

How is everyone?

Oh, my goodness. I've been having this huge surge of inspiration. I'll keep quiet about them for now, but I'm brewing something good at the back~ (Hehe~) I don't know how it'll go, but I'm sure it'll be go well. I want to write better articles, make more people happy and do great things. I'll achieve them someday soon! You come to a point that you just gotta do what you can to get out of a rut. So I'm working the best that I can. Lately, I've been either sleeping and reading like a robot with not much else to go on. I want to do my best so I can make more people happy!

For now, let me share with you what I ate at the Tsukiuta cafe! I've always been blessed to somehow end up with a Tsukiuta cafe with each of my returns to Tokyo. I'm not sure if it's purely coincidence, but I'll thank God anyway. Because at least, I was able to attract this circumstance in my life! I'm always such a positive person (or at least I try to anyway, not saying that things don't get to me...) so at least I can see it bear fruit in many ways.

Compared to the Good Smile Cafe, the menu is far smaller. There are 2 main menus, 3 desserts and 6 drinks. Not bad, it's alright for me! The venue, too, is quite small compared to the Akihabara Animate Cafe. 

I got to sit on ARATA'S TABLE! A few days before, Kuya Isaac and I were talking about the Tsukiusas. He said he liked the orange bunny and that orange was his favorite colour. I was quite surprised to have ended up on Arata's table that day. I was so excited, too! Coincidence? AH, but this thought makes me very happy. I can't contain it too much! 

Another Arata coaster?! Arata, Arata, Arata! Orange, orange, orange, huhu! <3

These were our drinks. I ordered Arata and Aoi's "Party Drink". It contained water mixed in with blue syrup topped with whipped cream, petal-shaped chocolate and silver dragees. It looked very beautiful, and I was impressed with how elegant it looked! My Mom ordered Kakeru and Koi's "Kira Shuu Energy Drink!". It's basically an energy drink mixed topped with whipped cream, candy sprinkles and a colored edible print.

Standard cafe stuff, nothing too impressive. As always, this isn't as high end as THE GUEST or CharaCro, so I feel no need to drag them. XD

Shirousa! Shiki no Basket~  I ordered the Procellarum burger~ The burger itself was made with steamed chicken, tartar sauce, lettuce and cheese. It reminded me of an upscale version of what you'd get at a random side store here in the Philippines. Nothing impressive, I could've done this at home myself. :')  It came with some soup stock as well as star fries. Not really worth the money, but look at my awesome photo! Aww, yeah!

Haru-san's Limited Edition omanjuu for his Birthday Special! It was really cute! And I brought it home with me to our apartment after to eat for later.

... as if my conversation with Kuya Isaac wasn't anymore timely, I also got You! Kuya's birthday is on August so! >////<

"Come, come! Procellarum!" Full Moon Cake Platter! I was begging my Mom to finish this. I didn't want to! x___x The custard cake was dry. Everything else seems shoddy. I mean, it's cute. Don't get me wrong! But I could've bought 2 huge meals outside for the price of this platter. It's basically just custard cake (which kinda felt store bought), random fruits like strawberry, kiwi, blue berries and star-shapped pineapple, vanilla ice-cream and whipped cream. The price must've been because of that You print!

I'll show this photo to Kuya then! Maybe at least he'll be happy I got his birth month boy. ;;;;;;;

Tsukiuta -The Animation- x Animate Cafe at Ikebukuro! Part 1

Blessed. Blessed. Blessed.

Hello, hello! How is everyone? I'm feeling very, very good! (So many repetitions, Mika, stoooop!) Oh my, God. Thank You so much for all the blessings You've bestowed upon me and my family. I want to honour You and everyone that believes in me. I want to work harder so that I can repay everyone for their faith. Thank you, everyone! I won't ever betray your trust. I'm very much in love with everyone and the world right now. #GoodVibes

I will definitely continue following my dreams and visions!

I just wanted to share with everyone my experience at yet another Tsukiuta Cafe! (Am I lucky or what?) 

It was a particularly cold day, and we were fortunate enough to get in the very first slot. I accidentally mixed up my schedule with the Yu-Gi-Oh cafe and went to Ikebukuro 2 instead. So embarrassing! The lady there had to show me the directions. Thankfully, she assisted me with a huge smile on her face. I'm so grateful that people help me on the crazy journey I am currently on. My Mom didn't particularly liked the fact that she had to walk farther back to where we came from ;;;; (Thank you, Mom, for bearing with me. Where would I be without you?)

When we got there, they were only just allowing people inside! We made it just in time! 

It was my first time visiting the Ikebukuro 3 cafe! It's a bit smaller than the Ikebukuro 2 cafe which is more spacious and has an open area overlooking Sunshine City. Also, I felt a bit claustrophobic as the spaces between the tables are narrow and there was basically around 20-40 people of us in the room. *sweats* With that said, I did have a fun time! 

I do understand that space is expensive and difficult in Tokyo.

The character stands are absolutely adorable! Look at that cute bunny peeking behind Kai!

The goods are still similar to the previous Tsukiuta cafe I visited at their Good Smile Collaboration in Akihabara. The art is quite different though, and I definitely prefer this over the previous one. I love how cute the characters are with their bunnies~ I absolutely love the Spring theme! (Granted this was in March so, duh, Mika. Duh! XD)

The guest books (content cannot be photographed) and the condiments section!

Forgive me for the rather short entry~ I just wanted to have a post wherein I featured the overall look and feel for the cafe. 

I hope you enjoyed! And surely, of course, more cafe posts soon!
