I’m really curious what they actually do in the cafe bar besides serving food and drinks in order to fuel their patrons’ fujoshi delusions lol~
Located at otaku paradise, Akibahara, Tokyo in Japan, Miracle JumP BL bar opened in mid 2010. It is probably the first ever boy’s love themed cafe bar to open in the world.
Update 15 July 2013: The shop has closed down. Last day of operation was 14 April 2013.

That’s the pic of the interior grabbed from the website. Looks like any generic cafe/bar. According to the official introduction: Miracle Jump is a BL (Boy’s love) themed, amusement bar. The shop has both 2D and 3D staff. The 2D staff is based on the characters in their original doujinshi (manga) and 3D staff is made up of guys who will do this… and that… in front of patrons to provide eye-opening delusion material for fujoshi and otomen (mental) filters.
Different from gay bars and host clubs, they are the fujoshi‘s paradise which places emphasis on the delusion aspect. Miracle Jump is a good place that provides a fun environment for fujoshi and patrons who want to know about the BL world. A bar where anyone can have a good time…
Besides running the cafe, they are also in the business of selling doujinshi manga and music CD based on the 2D characters.
Okay, so how does it work? Every table is limited to 90 minutes. This is standard practice for themed cafes like these. Most butler cafes also have a time-limit system too. However, there is also a base fee of 1,000 Yen for 90 minutes I think. -pause- LOLLOLLOL. What??? XD LOLLOL. It’s like blatantly charging for the “right” to peek at male waiters (who are cosplaying as seme/uke characters?) LOLLOL~
As for the 2D and 3D staff. I guess I understand that we need real people to serve patrons but the shop owners are also smart enough to know that sometimes 3D guys just don’t have what it takes to satisfy our fujoshi delusions. lol~ :D So in comes the 2D staff that fulfill all the seme-uke archetypes in the BL universe.
2D Staff. Complete with full character profiles like name, occupation, age, star-sign and so on. They didn’t indicate if they are seme/uke but looking at the height chart, we can more or less guess what type they are. And you will definitely be able to find your type. From the youngest guy at 15 to the oldest guy at 26 years old.
3D Staff. They probably only uploaded the cuter or more photogenic staff? Or maybe they just want to maintain some mystery. The 3D staff’s profile is clearly labeled with their seme/uke/otomen types. Kind of obvious too just from looking at their appearance and height stereotypes.
As for the food menu, the owners exercised their creativity in the names. No food pics to show us how good they are tho. Prices are quite reasonable. (But don’t forget to add the 1,000 Yen voyeur fee lol~)
They really should post beautiful food photos like Swallowtail (quite a famous Butler cafe in Japan which charges a premium for their high class dessert menu) I’ll probably do a post on them sometime.
No harm trying just for the fun of it but to be honest, the guys they featured aren’t my type and I think I’m also not that deluded a fujoshi yet ^^;; So… Miracle JumP, anyone? lol~
