SCHOOL-LIVE! (GAKKOU GURASHI!) AND MR.KANSO COLLABORATION

When you think of visiting Japan, you imagine eating ramen from street vendors, heading to sushi restaurants, or maybe even grabbing some takoyaki. Not many people would put a bar where you eat cold canned food on their ‘to do list.’ However, you should.

The restaurant I’m referring to here is called Mr.Kanso, and it has been proven pretty popular with a number of restaurants now open across Japan. After a hard day’s work, you can grab a beer, choose your favourite canned goods, and tuck in. Now, the idea never appealed to me, but when I heard that the extremely popular anime, Gakkou Gurashi! (School-Live!) was teaming up with this very unique little restaurant, I had no choice but to go.

I found the underground restaurant located in Nagoya, (which is one of the smaller locations), and was met with rows and rows of canned goods, and only canned goods. Mr.Kanso offer a huge selection of cans from around the world and it really does make for an interesting experience.

I grabbed a handful of Gakkou Gurashi cans, then sat down to enjoy a nice, cold meal, and to be honest, it actually tasted pretty good!

The collaboration was fantastic, given Gakkou Gurashi’s subject matter and the fact all they eat is canned food; it’s nice to be able to try each character’s favourite. You also get a free limited postcard with every can you buy, which is a nice little extra.

Mr Kanso

Overall, Mr.Kanso is definitely a place worth experiencing. As Gakkou Gurashi was one of my favourite shows from the summer season, it was a brilliant collaboration and it introduced me to a restaurant I would never normally visit. It was a little pricey, with each can costing between £3 to £6. Was it worth it? Yes. Will I go again? Absolutely!

Plus, I now know where I’m heading if a zombie outbreak occurs.
