Cool Intentions

A new "schoolboy cafe" in Tokyo has waiters who look and act like teenage boarding school students as they flirt with the customers, mostly "office ladies in their twenties and thirties," reports Reuters. The concept is based on a popular comic book, as well as the hugely successful boy-love manga genre: Comics about boy-boy romance for female readers are undergoing a revival in Japan right now. In any case, the cafe's waiters will talk to you about German poetry as you pretend to be a wealthy benefactress visiting the school, which, frankly, sounds hot. Konichiwa, bitches. [Reuters]
