In Japan, Maid Cafes are popular establishments where people go to be served by women and girls in cute maid outfits, who give you close and personal attention during your visit. Manga Spice Cafe wants to bring you that same care and attention, from food and drink to some awesome comics to read and enjoy! The manga they send is current and first issue, so if you get hooked you can easily pick up the next volume. I’m really excited to review another box!
The goodies are all wrapped in bright blue tissue.
The magazine is great — it’s a big two-page spread with information on the artists featured, trivia, and of course the snacks! As soon as I saw manga artist CLAMP mentioned I got excited!
The box always sends three issues of manga. They are always Number #1 so you can start a new series without being confused.
Card Captor Sakura Clear Card Volume 1 — I love most CLAMP series but CCS was my first. Their art style is so unique. This is the latest CCS story taking place when Sakura is older than in the original series. I’m excited to see if the characters from the original show up too!
The Promised Neverland — This sounds spooky! Emma is an orphan staying at an orphanage where the kids are fed great food, sleep in comfy beds, and can do anything they want except leave the property. But when an orphan turns up dead, there’s a surprising twist to the story I don’t want to spoil!
Children of the Whale — This series is about magically inclined children who live on a vessel called the Mud Whale. It looks a bit confusing but I will give it a try.
Onto the snacks, the perfect pairing for some comics!
Hello Panda — Bear shaped cookies with a strawberry filling.
Chocolate Corn Stars — Corn snacks that have a strong chocolate taste.
Ramen Snack — A crunchy dried ramen snack with green onion flavour. My fave snack in the box!
Milki — This is a carbonated yoghurt drink. It reminds me of Calpis.
Lemon Super Hi-Chew — A new version of the popular chewy candy. The lemon taffy has a crunchy center!
Pudding Snack — A caramel jello pudding kind of snack, the flavour was great but the texture was surprising!
Manga Spice Cafe is the manga-lover’s dream box! Something to read, to eat, and to drink — it’s such a great idea for a box! I love that the manga included are all the first in the series — no jumping in halfway through a storyline!
What did you think of this month’s box?
