Yes, it was Halloween, my friends. Great opportunity for maid cafes to throw an event to attract customers. One of my favorites, Schatzkiste also threw an event..... however..... in a different manner. It was completely under the taste of the head housemaid. It was not maids cheerfully trick-or-treating in the interior covered with cute Halloween decorations. It was..... rather.... terrifying. Indeed, I am sure some people did not go there on that weekend since they were so terrified by the pictures posted on the web. It was MAID OF THE DEAD III: real zombie maids squirming and serving in the maid cafe.
It was early October when I saw scary-looking monkey in a cage hanging in the cafe. It was a mismatch to the peaceful atmosphere of Schatzkiste. Apparently, the monkey was brought in from a remote island by one of the maids. This monkey turned ferocious and attacked maids, and......
The official story (sorry it is in Japanese!)
"Infected" maids (day 1) *be careful if you are not used to scary stuff ! X-(
You will be surprised how "real" these maid zombies were. As day goes by, they decay more. I went on day 2 and day 3. They seem to be maids-by-heart, thus even though they are now walking-dead, they still served orders and tried to make you smile by fooling around. However, I was laughing but shaking all the time, since how they look were seriously terrifying. I think it was my first time in my life that I experienced fear and laughter at the same time.
The cafe is back to normal and maids are back to humans by the herb found by one of the maids. However, I am still traumatized and remembers the fear when I see maids who turned into zombies on that day, even though almost a week has passed already.
If you are a hardcore zombie fan, I highly recommend you to keep your eyes on the event announcements of Schatzkiste. The event was the third time. I am sure there will be the fourth :-p
