Geeks don’t have time to eat a real meal when they’re figurine shopping in Akihabara. That’s why every fifth vending machine on the street sells real warm meals in a can, like oden, ramen, beef&potatoes, and Chinese noodles. Each one is about $3. They first started selling these canned dinners in front of an old school electronics store a few years ago, and it was a huge hit. Now it’s all over town. But only really in Akiba, I think—has anyone seen it elsewhere?
I was gonna try one but my brother stopped me. Why ruin my appetite with this junk when I was about to go get a real meal? Maybe next time.
