    Shame the Maid Cafe isn’t another possible job, with the protag dressing up as a trap.

    I hope they don’t remove this just because it’s “culturaly different” or whatever bullshit excuse they can find, and in case it doesn’t get removed the dubs will probably ruin this

    Be prepared for overpriced microwave food. You go there for the service and the eye candy.

    The ones that serve the really nice stuff tend to be classier in both maids and atmosphere.

    There’s no nudity (I’m assuming) in the part so I reckon it’ll be kept

    But yes, a Maid Cafe would definitely be classed as “objectifying women” by the feminist cretins so there is a risk

    They’ll most likely ruin it by the dubs/dialogue about some bullshit of how it’s “degrading to women”, “my dead-end job”, etc. etc. etc.

    “I’ve never seen so many fat black women singing anime songs in one place.”

    “diversity”, “inclusivity”, “body positivity”

    Which of course means unattractive and to make it as sexually unappealling as possible to straight males

    Was gonna post something similar.

    A cafe where a bunch of woman in maid costumes call their mostly male patron’s “master” is sure to ruffle some touchy feminist feathers. “Culture” be damned. =/

    I hope Atlus keeps everything as is, but if not… well PS4 is region free.

    Technically I did start it, but thank you for proving that Niche continues to undo the effort the people on their side has done by being living stereotypes.

    They said they wanted to make it “accessible for the american audience”.

    And if people enabled their previous censorships with excuses and damage controls, I dont see what ‘s stopping Atlus actually.

    The problem is that the average western gamer has absolutely zero discipline.

    >talking cat warns you she’s messed up and came back with some weird-ass tea
    >girl uses her maid charms to coax you into drinking it anyway
    >you actually copitulate like a throbbing pussy
    >gain 1 point in “kindness” and pay literal ten bucks for tea when you wanted coffee

    If some strict verbal discipline followed by picking the option to actually make her come back with the right beverage wasn’t in order, I don’t know WHAT was.

    Fuckin’ maid cafes.

    Reminds me of the time I went to a Japanese cultural festival, and instead of having Japanese people sing authentic Japanese music, they had a fat, white weeb fujoshi sing random Anime theme songs and ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen. …It was really awkward, to say the least.

    Honestly, while I don’t like it and wish they would put uncensored covers on the inside back more, usually a censored cover is because they have to follow certain rules to sell them in stores. The important thing is the game not being censored.

    It’s going to be the dialogue isn’t it?

    From the guys:
    “what an awful place, treating women like sex objects”
    “how degrading for women, this place needs to close down”
    “a cafe where women are dressed up to be ogled over, disgraceful”
    etc.

    From the maids:
    “it’s a dead end job and I hate it”
    “it’s no different to prostitution”
    “we are so oppressed and society has made it that way”
    etc.
