And today, Zero Hedge has another version of ANA ad for me - "Find Your Angle".
In addition to the top banner, there is also a square banner on the right side, with a young girl with a blank face with color-contact-lense-augmented blank eyes in a maid costume.
For those who don't know about "maid cafes" in Japan that have cropped up in the past 10 years or so, they are outfits where customers can engage in a conversation, play games with young girls (as young as high school students) and women dressed as maids who work at these outfits. Some cafes offer alcohol beverages. There are "maid cafes" specialized in giving hand and foot massages. Some apparently give more than hand and foot massages.
Maid cafes like this one in Akihabara say "We're waiting for the return of our masters".
I personally find it very insulting and demeaning for girls in particular, but if you read Japanese commentaries on the subject, you'll find these cafes are lauded as empowering for young girls and women.
(And they wonder why women don't marry and the birth rate is low in Japan?)
These "maid cafes" have totally ruined my favorite town Akihabara, as far as I'm concerned, which used to be just the place for tech geeks of all ages.
