We reported previously that to celebrate its anime adaptation and series broadcast commencement in the Summer 2018 anime season, RPG fantasy puzzle-mobile game “Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100-Nin no Oujisama” has collaborated with fashion centre Shimamura to launch an original range of t-shirts.
This time round, we bring more news of special summer collaborations between the game/anime with Animate Café and two of its affiliated beverages retail stores – as the mobile game has achieved the milestone of five million downloads and account registrations worldwide!
The collaboration this round for “Yume100” is a 3-fold one with the main Animate Café – specifically their Café Shop in Shinjuku –; as well as with the café group’s two other affiliate beverages retail stores: ‘Bubble-tea specialty store Sisters Ikebukuro’ and ‘Animate Café Gratte’. The theme for this round of collaboration is “The Princes and their Café Staff Experience”. We take a look at the menu high-lights lined-up for each of the collaborations!
At the Animate Café Shop Shinjuku, fans and customers will be spoilt for choice with their array of 10 types of special desserts and beverages, for example:
Kingdom of Sea Jelly Parfait at JPY 750 (available for limited duration of 26 July – 12 August)
‘A Knight’s Oath’ – Prince Avi’s Cranberry Drink at JPY 600
Crown Prince Frost’ of Snow Kingdom’s “Whisky” Iced-tea at JPY 600
Prince Douglas of Pirate Kingdom’s “Beer-like” Ginger Ale at JPY 600
Realm/Kingdom of Dream’s Special 100g Soup at JPY 700
At the ‘Bubble-tea specialty store Sisters Ikebukuro’, fans may expect to be treated to icy blended juice or tea-based beverages with special bubble toppings – these edible ‘bubbles’ are made of tapioca flour beads that are boiled and sweetened, a beverage culture adapted from Taiwan. Some highlights include:
Prince Avi’s and Navi’s Strawberry Yogurt Blend at JPY 600
Kingdom of Moonlight ‘Caleaboule’ Twin Princes’ Black Sesame Blended Ice at JPY 600
Prince Orion of Aquaria Kingdom’s Fizzy Lychee Soda at JPY 600
At the three selected outlets (Kichijoji, Okayama and Kyoto) of Animate Café Gratte – short for ‘graphic latte’ where a character’s image is printed in edible ink on a layer of creamy foam-topping of the beverage, fans may be delighted to find ‘gratte’ and icing cookies offered on the menu. Each beverage and cookie retail at JPY 500 respectively; or fans may purchase one set consisting of a drink + cookie for JPY 950:
Fans will be rewarded with a delightful originally-designed drink coaster of the Yume100 princes in café staff uniform for each order of beverages at all participating café shop/stores of the collaboration. There are a total of 13 coaster designs to be collected in all.
Lastly, fans and customers may also look forward to a delightful line-up of special goods and merchandise that they can purchase for memorabilia if they visit the main Animate Café Shop in Shinjuku. We take a look at some of these:
Chracter-print cookies set at JPY 900
Each set comes with a randomised free gift of one special illustrated card (out of two designs – pictured below)
Big acrylic stands (4 designs) at JPY 1,200 each
Trading acrylic two-way stand and keyring (13 designs) at JPY
