Japanese cafe opens limited-time 'Stranger Things' themed cafe

By Shannon, SoraNews24

"Stranger Things" may not be as popular as "Spy X Family" in Japan, but it has enough of a following to deserve a cafe. From July 6 to September 9, Japanese cafe Pronto’s Shibuya Fukuras branch has a "Stranger Things" makeover called “Stranger Pronto”. The collaboration coincides with the recent release of the later half of Season 4 of the world-famous Netflix series. The cafe will be decorated in a "Stranger Things" theme and include a completely "Stranger Things"-themed menu, photo spots, artwork, and more.

▼ Here’s a sneak peek of the menu and some of the art featured (explained below).


Menu items are based on characters from "Stranger Things" Seasons 1 through 4, including main character Eleven’s first burger (and of course, her favorite waffles), a roast beef pasta plated to look like the infamous Demogorgon monster, and Nancy’s Halloween Party mocktail. There’s even a cream soda made to look like the Upside Down (not pictured above but on the full menu).

Some art they’ll have on display includes trick art of a Demogorgon coming out of a door, the famous Christmas light wall at the Byers’ house, the fiery road to Hawkins (possible spoiler), and the Surfer Boy Pizza van.

▼ This is what the outside of the Shibuya Fukuras Pronto looks like.


There are markedly more references to Season 4 than the earlier seasons–likely due to its recent release–so it may be better to pay a visit after you’ve watched it all. The Shibuya Fukuras branch is open year-round, but if you want to visit the Upside Down, you’ll need to stop by between July 6 and September 9.

Jumping on the bandwagon as per usual.

There'll be people claiming it's a Japanese show soon.

Forget "42". According to Japanese cafes, the answer to life, the universe and everything has always been and always will be:

Just in time for the worst series so far... Season 3 certainly offered challenges to the writers for equivalent follow up and, IMHO, where they can go after the massive loss of imagination in Series 4 is to simply close all of the rifts and go home...I wouldn't bet on a Series 5 unless some serious pharmaceuticals are employed by the writers...
