School Swimsuit & Meido Water: New Akiba Drink?!

I’ve heard Zero no Tsukaima Season III is good stuff. Tiffania bust revolution!

Akiba Keizai has reported on this new souvenir drink that has just started it sales in stores. Yes! Another product to targeted at the warm innocent otakus of Akiba by splashing moé characters on the labels of the drink.

The new akiba drink apparently comes in two different types. A School Swimsuit 「すくみず」 and  Meibi (Meido?) 「めいびぃ」 version. The uber chibi characters featured on both the bottles are Mari 「まり」and Rin 「りん」, both Year 1 students from the same class, class C.

The concept of the School Swimsuit 「すくみず」 drink comes the image of 2 people happily frolicking in the pool during the summer season, thus having a fruit flavored pineapple taste to the drink.

On the other hand, Meibi 「めいびぃ」 came from the idea of an tsundere maid tea cafe opened by both Mari and Rin during their school festival, which serves non-alcoholic green apple beer. The drink has been manufactured to look like a beer and even has foams bubbling out to add to the experience.

I did think it was actually water that swimsuit girls have used and then it got bottled into a drink or something. Don’t look at me like that! Imagination runs wild.. ^^;

After reading the contents of the drink, I am happy to actually say I would actually want to give it a try, though somewhere and somehow deep in my heart I have that feeling that the drink might be a disappointment. Won’t know till I try though ^^;

Meido drink isn’t half as bad either :)

A lot of these ‘Akiba’ souvenirs have seem to be popping out in stores. I remember getting the Moetan Snack while in Japan last year which tasted pretty good. Only complaint’s that it did tasted a little burnt.

Will try to see if I can get hold of those drinks. ^^

Question! If you’re stuck on a desert with either the school swimsuit drink or meido drink, which will you choose?

  1. “I did think it was actually water that swimsuit girls have used and then it got bottled into a drink or something.”

    The first thing I thought of was Azumanga Daioh’s Kimura-sensei wanting to drink the pool water!

  2. “I did think it was actually water that swimsuit girls have used and then it got bottled into a drink or something”

    It’s okay, I thought it was pool water wrung from swimsuits.

    A tsun-dere meido in sukumizu onegaishimasu!!!

    this also reminded me of Azumanga ^_^

    Well, in regard to the question. Definitely meido for me ^_^

  5. i remember last april when i was there there were “meido cookies” and such… it just makes me wonder how do “otaku-ized” food products really sell in japan (specifically, akiba).

    nope, i havent tried the meido cookie.

  6. 53. naturally like your website but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.

  7. This provider took my hard earned money so i would like to make consumers aware of it, be sure to help me pass on the word so they can not thieve other peoples revenue!!! They took all my cash (600$) and just do not reply anymore… same task happened to people well before but i found out too late. Now i am intending to warn many people so they do not loose their funds like it has happened to others… The name of the website: legalpowder.cn.com
