I just go to my library for free manga, since the area I live in has a relatively large library system. If my local library doesn't have the manga I want I can request it from another branch in the system. Also has anime and dvds.

I'd personally be interested, but like at least a couple others have brought up, there's VERY little chance of such a business succeeding, especially in a area like mine.

I'm not exactly rich enough to single-handedly keep a business in .....well, in business. Nor would I really want to spend all of my money doing so.

Moving this to Polls, because regardless of subject, polls go into Polls. :)

Now, on-topic.
It's not a cafe as they don't serve meals or alcoholic beverages, and it's completely run by volunteers and monthly donations, but us Dutchies actually have a Manga library. http://www.mangakissa.nl

How else do you get a sweet body that makes the ladies blush and the men jealous. I mean look at these abs.


As for the OP's question yeah sure why not. Long as the coffee is good and the selection is good.

If the cafe is also a legit cafe with good service, then "yes."

I don't know if people will really spend money just to sit around reading manga when they can do the same thing for free at the library, Barnes and Noble, and online.

So update: I'm thinking about Vegas. Seeing as this place would be open 24/7, I need a city that never sleeps. BINGO Vegas! Always tons of people and I know there's several places open for new business near the strip. The catch is that Vegas isn't doing as well as a few years ago, so I'll wait to see how it does this year.

Not to bash on your location, but Vegas in my opinion isn't the ideal place for something like this. I've dwell on the idea of opening something similar, a maid cafe. I've done research, and the best place is LA, specifically Little Tokyo. You see Little Tokyo in LA, already attracts a lot of people who like anime/ Japanese culture/ food etc., so you already have a guaranteed good flow of customers. Plus LA, is home to the biggest anime convention in the U.S.A, Anime Expo. Plus almost every university/ high school, has an anime club, meaning you have a lot of potential customers. As for being open 24 hours, i highly doubt anybody will actually come after 1 in the morning. If you are making it a business you got to take into consideration, the costs of keeping it open. If you have no customer flow during late hours, it is better to close than to stay open. You are going to save money, and also, you got to keep in mind inf you are open 24 hours, who is going to be taking care of the business during late hours? Sorry to go on for so long, but a place like this is something I've always dreamed about opening too.
