Mainichi Daily News are running an interesting article about a Japanese man that decided to live in a manga cafe after running out of money. This case happened in Gifu Japan where the man lived in the Manga cafe for 34 days without paying for it.
Manga cafe's are places where you can rent a small private room (about the size of a cubicle) for a set length of time. Most of these establishments have large libraries of manga you can browse and read at your own leisure during your stay. They are open 24 hours a day and provide some food, and sometimes common ammenities like showers.
The man was lucky enough to stay 34 days in the Manga Cafe and racked up a bill of about $1500. He was arrested a couple of days ago by the police for fraud.
