MiracleJumP Fudanshi Boys Love Themed Cafe Bar (BL Bar, Tokyo Akihabara Japan)

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.

BL Bar Miracle JumP BLバーMiracle JumP (ミラクルジャンプ)
Address: 〒101-0021 東京都千代田区外神田3-2-11遠藤ビル3F
Official site: http://www.miraclejump.com/
Blog: http://ameblo.jp/miraclejump801/ (sneak peeks into the cafe with fanservice photos)
Opening hours: Tues (6pm-11pm), Fri (6pm – 5am), Sat (5pm – 5am), Sun (5pm – 11pm)

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~

    Read about it before… it’s sad that the only thing that caught my eye was really the 2-D staff which has a rather cute chara design ( I call dibs on the megane uke one, who should totally be older).
    3-D staff = not my type at all. Besides, I’d feel rather embarrassed staring at people doing… this… and that. OnO

    About the bar itself, for what they charge and the experience you get: personally would rather go once to a host club, just for the heck of it. At least from there I know I can bring home some funny memories? And the attention would definitely be kinda different and special, aha.

    But hey, at least they made a good business decision and also carry out the doujinshi and cds!

  2. 43 mos ago

    I would try it out at least once. I do wish they had butler cafes here in USA. I would so go to one over and over again.

    Ponytail I have posted my Yaoi-con post on my blog.

    This looks promising. I can bet the first day it’s open, it’s gonna be flooded. It’s kinda cool they’re also selling some merchandise targeting extra profits…

    The menu names make me lol though. ‘cocktail’… XDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    I don’t understand how a steak can be yaoi…..but ‘our sausage’ LOL
    really curioius about the 2D staff :)

  5. 42 mos, 4 wks ago

    @Oru: Yeah, I wouldn’t know where to look lol~ you’ve gotta give a couple their privacy! But since they’re really just acting then maybe I would XD yeah… it’s embarrassing *_*

    Hehe… 1,000 Yen voyeur fee! Well, I would try a host club too X3 it isn’t cheap tho?

    Yeah… the doujinshi can add on to the delusion since there are some things they can’t show in 3D lol~

  6. 42 mos, 4 wks ago

    @TasukiHoney: Maybe you can suggest to the event organisers for them to include that as a program? :D

    Thanks for the update! I’ve updated my post with your link too ^^

  7. 42 mos, 4 wks ago

    @hirochan: yeah the 2D staff fulfill what 3D cannot lol~ the voyeur fee is clever too. I think we can’t tell from the pictures but maybe if the 3D staff are also cute and charming, they might be able to get themselves some fans and repeat customers too.

    Yeah, fujoshi power~ even usual cocktail can be interpreted as -cock- tail lol lol~

  8. 42 mos, 4 wks ago

    @Nicky: yeah, that was hilarious :D I think the idea is… if we’re curious of the 2D staff… we buy the doujinshi?

    I’m WTF-ing everywhere o_o

    … I kinda want to go now. JUST TO CHECK.

  10. 42 mos, 3 wks ago

    @Mayon: lol~ please share your experience with us if you do :D

    Even acting I’d feel terrible and probably just look down, read a book an eat/drink up! ~///~

    Well, host clubs can get really expensive, specially if you let them charge sneaky extras (like allowing your host to smoke, per instance). However, for first timers, each club gives the first-time discount! So with the included base menu (varies from place to place) and your host, you pay around 2000~3000 yen.
    Obviously the trick is to only go once to different places, lol.

    Maybe they could give a first time discount too, uh?~

  12. 42 mos, 3 wks ago

    @Oru – Yep… its embarrassing ehehe.

    The hosts charge for smoking??? Woah~ anything goes huh :3 I’ve read that they’ll pull out all the stops to coax you into spending $$$ on them during those few hours. Seems kinda scary :P Newbies should go with somebody who can converse in Japanese, right? Otherwise we’ll probably get charged left, right and centre and don’t even know it lol~

    Hehe I didn’t see the first time discount mentioned on the MiracleJumP site tho… :D

  13. Oru
    42 mos, 3 wks ago

    Yeah, they charge for some weird things because apparently in Japan it isn’t as much considered normal as it is considered “sexy” .
    But although they try to persuade you into things, you can simply refuse and they won’t be too much over it nor act differently towards you. From the documentaries I’ve seen, they are incredibly polite (and really good actors when pretending to care so much for you XD).
    There are a good couple of host clubs that provide english services for foreigns and, if you walk down the famous host road, those will be the guys approaching you with invitations, ehe.

    In last case… you can just ask your hosts to feed your fujoshi needs?
    http://i38.tinypic.com/a16o5.jpg <– Lol.

  14. 42 mos, 3 wks ago

    @Oru: Ah~ icic you have a point. Smoking can look sexy indeed. But I personally don’t like the smell of tobacco.

    Yeah… host clubs are also selling a fantasy… what I learnt from the documentary is that it is important to be aware of that fact.

    woah… didn’t think of that last idea. Is that a pic of real hosts? :O You think they’ll oblige? (and I wonder how much that’ll cost us hahaha)

  15. Oru
    42 mos, 3 wks ago

    Then that makes two of us.

    It’s rather difficult though… They seem so charming some girls actually end up prostituting themselves to keep going to host clubs to see their favorite ones… and on the other side of the coin, hosts have a really hard time getting a girlfriend because people always believe they are just acting out a farce :C

    Those are real hosts and, I guess… money really does get you -almost- anything? XD

  16. 42 mos, 3 wks ago

    @Oru: Yeah, that’s really sad… it’s like they’re destroying their lives for a fleeting fantasy :-\ As for the hosts… that’s just too bad and I think they probably enjoy enough female attention that will last them several lifetimes already ^^;; and like most girls, I don’t think I would feel secure if I were to date one either.

    Woah… I thought they were girl cosplayers or something *_*

  17. Oru
    42 mos, 3 wks ago

    Yeah, I think that’s the reason why Japanese society can be so… scary, sometimes. How things can end up 8 or 80 due to fantasies and idealizations or plain social pressure.

    And noo noo noo, when I deliver, I deliver. They’re hosts from Club Acqua in Tokyo.
    Also, there is no girl in earth that can fake an adam’s apple like that one! XD

  18. 42 mos, 3 wks ago

    @Oru: Hehe… I popped over to Club Acqua website ^^;; reminds me… the 1st time I went to Tokyo with my friend, the minute we stepped out of the shinkansen into Shinjuku, we saw a mega huge billboard outside which was printed with similar pictures of relatively good looking men. At that time, I wasn’t such an otaku/fujoshi yet but my friend learned Japanese in school. She noticed that they stated a telephone number + the hosts number code and that it was “for women only”. lol~ Only at our last day there, she realised that they were hosts OTL;; And she was like… oh~ I want to try that one day if I had the money lol~ XDD I was like eee… I don’t know (^///^)
