And I haven't gone there before! :'(

The Idolm@ster Cafe & Bar will end its service on May 20th.
During that time, they'll hold a final event called「Forever! We are...」
All goods become limited item only. Get it while you can.

Both Idolm@ster Official Shops in Makuhari and Nipponbashi will end on April 19th.

Unfortunately, i doubt they are. I have heard the news quite a while ago.

I'm glad i visited the characro cafe when i was in japan for 10th, it really was a lot of fun (i went 3 times). I was at the official im@s shop in Fukuoka about a year ago, and honestly, that one was quite the disappointment to me, mainly because 90% of the goods were CG stuff and there was nothing really special on sale.

Damn, I was planning to go there someday too, at least once. :/

Is that where you get those im@s drinking glasses with the idols imprinted on them?  I think I remember you posted your Yukiho one somewhere also, but I can't find it haha.

Yeah, I heard about that too.  It's unfortunate.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the purpose supposed to promote the 10th anniversary?  But, now the 10th anniversary stuff is over, so it makes sense to end it?


Unfortunately, I don't think I could ever visit the cafe or Japan in general (due to priorities in life and not knowing Japanese).

yes, you get the drinking glass if you buy the totally overpriced (5000 yen iirc) bottle of juice with the character printed on it, and you also get a coaster.

The bottle and the coaster are to the right of the mirror, and the glass to the left.

That sounds about right.  In that they probably started 1/2 year before 10th to promote it, and then continue for the 10th year to total 1.5 years.  I don't know.  But, in any case, they probably have other plans in store for us.

I'm still mad that I left Japan less than 2 weeks before Makoto's juice and tumblr glass release not to mention her birthday.  :'( And I should've looked into auctions via Buyee sooner, but I doubt anyone will sell the Characro tumblrs at this point let alone hers.
On the other hand, I'll be happy to have this one http://page19.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x438689698
MAKO MAKO RIIIIIIIIIN!!
