Yu-Gi-Oh! 20th Anniversary Animate Cafe banner

Ready for another Yu-Gi-Oh! Cafe? Oh yes! Between February 1 and March 29, the Animate Cafes in Ikebukuro, Tennoji, Sendai, and Okayama will celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary with their own Yu-Gi-Oh! collaboration cafes. Animate is the largest retailer in Japan of otaku-related goods and has 11 cafes (and a food truck!) that get decked out with the characters and themes of popular anime, manga, and games all year round.

Yesterday, Animate Cafe’s websites updated with pictures of the exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! keychains, coasters, buttons, and other cute merch that customers can soon pick up. It also posted photos of its Yu-Gi-Oh!-themed menu. Will you dine like a king with Jack Atlas’ latest ramen concoction? Or eat the hearty stew of Shun Kurosaki and the Xyz resistance fighters? Or maybe you’ll want to dine on all five Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonists in the special 20th anniversary pasta! Let’s see what there is to eat.
