Hawaii is the original paradise on Earth. Crystal clear water, powdery white sand, active volcanoes, great sport fishing and lush tropical forests. A place so mysterious that it seems to defy belief. How can words describe the splendor of a place that counts spam as part of its fine dining? It is a beckoning place, an enchanting place. A state so engraved into your soul that you completely forget it wasn’t there in the first place. Hawaii is the place to be, and those aren’t the words of a junior Anime Corner writer. Those are the words of Chisato Nishikigi of Lycoris Recoil. And with a collaboration between cafe and eatery Lycoris Recoil Hawaii, you can also sample some Hawaiian dishes (minus Spam).
From February 3 to March 20, Shibuya, Shinsaibashi and Nagoya PARCO locations will feature the Hawaiian version of the Cafe LycoReco menu. Coffee shop patrons will be randomly given a restaurant-specific coaster (9 designs available). All cafe locations will also include a store selling a variety of items that can also be purchased through the online PARCO store. These include acrylic holders, stickers, trading cards, pewter badges, charms, mugs, bags, life-sized rugs (available via the online store only), floor mats and towels.
Items will range in price from as little as ¥330 (~2.25 USD) for a trading card to ¥11,500 (~78 USD) for a full-sized rug. All goods are limited in quantity so there is a limit to how many customers can purchase. The menu, in addition to being based on the original LycoRyco Cafe menu, will include a touch of Hawaiian style. Customers who visit the Lycoris Recoil Hawaii cafe and eatery can sample tropical drinks, Hawaiian-influenced main dishes as well as anime-style desserts and hot drinks. Customers who purchase Novelty Cafe Reservation Tickets will have priority in seating and drinks. Buying this also comes with a commemorative ticket.
