Otaku siblings Tamotsu and Niwaka Denkigai are shopping in Akihabara when it is overrun by vampiric cosplaying monsters! These creatures, known as "Bugged Ones," can possess anyone they bite and soon they begin causing mayhem across the city. As Tamotsu finds himself at the mercy of one of these creatures, he is rescued by the mysterious baseball bat-wielding Matome Mayonaka. Together, they fight through several more encounters with the Bugged Ones, but before long, Tamotsu is fatally wounded protecting Matome. With no other choice, she revives him as a high level Bugged One—just like her!
Tamotsu and Matome, along with excitable otaku cosplayer Arisa Ahokainen, make up the group "The Electric Mayonnaise" and they begin dispatching the Bugged Ones in the only way they know how: by ripping off their clothes and exposing them to sunlight!
If you don't like the idea of the anime's premise, stripping the opponents to defeat them, then yeah, don't watch it. But please try not to leave a low rating if you simply don't like THE PREMISE. Anime with fanservice as the plot or central theme can have great potential too, just look at, say, Kill la Kill.
Anyway, I'm at 3 episodes in, and it's been pretty great so far. I really like the art; I find the four main characters' designs appealing to look at.
The plot is well explained and is not very convoluted to understand, unlike other anime where there's just so much
to take in and it would be hard to understand without looking at the source material. There's also an explanation for their way of battling and it's not just simply "make them naked".
I love the music. The music was great and some of the songs were really catchy.
The comedy is great and the interactions between the characters are fun. It's hard to dislike any of the main characters. they're really entertaining and not cringey or generic like other anime.
The fanservice, well, I'd say this anime is bordering on to the good fanservice. Bad fanservice is just fanservice for the sake of fanservice, where the anime would probably be better off without it. Good fanservice improves the anime and flows with the story more; in this anime's case, fanservice for the sake of comedy and action. They pulled it off well and it's not as tacked on and annoying as, say, Shokugeki no Souma.
I might have already said too much even though there's only been 3 episodes so far, but I can say I have enjoyed watching this anime. It's really entertaining and interesting and pulled off the fanservice well.
I have never believed in writing a review for a series that only has a few episodes out. (4 to be exact at the time I am writing this) . I also believe in giving an anime a serious chance of establishing itself.
But this is edging quite close to the worse anime I think I have ever watched so I felt like I needed to warn the anime world of this monstrosity before they suffer the serious pain of watching it.
First and foremost I never played the games, I have friends that have who have told me that no characters correlate over the games as
of episode 4. I have read this was made to celebrate the studios 25th anniversary? Hard to believe the same studio produced Welcome to the N.H.K and Afro Samurai.
If this anime was made to sell the games when the developers gave it to the studio then boy oh boy there sales must be going through the roof. If the roof was the floor and the floor was the Mariana Trench.
I thought about splitting up my review into sections as you normally do when writing reviews for anime but alas, that means effort and its clear with the story, characters and art of this show the studio put absolutely no effort into this whatsoever, so why should I?
The story is incredibly dull, the characters are so bland I reckon placing a plastic cone in the place of them would work just as well. Would just have to replace the fan service shots with shots of something else. Not much lost.
The art style seems like they spent the budget on 3 or so characters then got bored and just didn't care about the rest and probably thought yeah that looks great! The opening itself is not bad i guess and neither is the ending, practically the only good thing I can say about it.
Enjoyment? Oh boy oh boy. MAL gives you the option of rating sections 1 to 10 and everything is rated 1 except for enjoyment which is rated a 5? Why would I enjoy something so bad? Simple really I wasn't suffering through the pain alone, watching it with a group of people. If you plan to check this out, make sure to have a buddy with you so that the pain is a little more bearable as you can mock it together.
TL;DR ? It's really bad and you are probably best staring at a blank wall for a while instead of watching. That's more productive.
Now its time for a lie down for myself as I lost brain cells watching this.
This is going to be my first Review for an anime, i know this is a weird anime for me to start reviewing for the first time, but why not.
everything on this Review is gonna be my opinion, REMEMBER, MY OPINION.
(Keep in mind that i haven't play the game yet and i've watched 5 EP when i was writing this)
The story take places in Akihabara where in Akiba, there is these bad guys that called "the bugged one" that try to take over Akihabara, the bugged one are stronger than a normal human being, and the only way to defeat them is to
strip them Naked, that way the bugged one will be cured and become a normal human being, together with Arisa,Niwaka,Matome, and Tamotsu, join them on their story to stop many different kinds The Bugged One from all over Akiba.
(its stupid i know, but trust me, there's more to it)
We all know that there is many kind of artstyle in anime, for example where the guy was Tall like a normal human being or the guys was drawn like they can turn their body around for like 0,1 sec, Akiba's Trip The Animation was the second one, and guess what, it really fit the whole Cheeky Atmosphere that Akiba's trip had (if that make sense), Gonzo done a pretty good job that's for sure.
The sound was pretty straight forward, the OP of the song are decent, and the voice acting are pretty fantastic especially Ahokainen Arisa, can't remember anything from the background music tho.
there's 4 MC here and each of them are very unique (kind of, well not really) im just gonna talk about the Male MC a little bit, which is Denkigai Tamotsu, he's not your typical MC, he had a very relatable personalty, you know, he's not that typical MC where "im gonna help you cause im a good guy".
Personally i really enjoyed the show, each episode gave me a few laugh here and there, they know how to pull off a good comedy for sure.
If you're trying to find a serious anime with some overwhelming plot and you don't like ecchi stuff, this is not for you .
If you're trying to find a good comedy anime with not so serious plot, and doesn't really bothered by the fan service, this is for you.
[This is my first review, so if you see grammar mistakes or typos, please bear with me]
Akiba's Trip is an anime based of a game about stripping. I don't know about the game tho, but the anime is good enough to make me kept watching 'til the end. It's a bit early for me to review this (since there's only 4 episodes out at the time I'm writing this) but since another users have reviewed this, yea.
Very dumb. In Akiba, there's something called Bugged Ones who possess people living around there to make them evil. To make them back to their "previous" side, the
main heroes Tamotsu (not Mokkun from Boku no Pico, lol) and the red-haired girl should undress them. Then Tamotsu got interested for something like idols (ep 3) and radios (ep 4). He even managed to buy everything related to it, with a really high price. Because of his interest, he got to met some Bugged Ones. (like in the pool of ep 3)
Pretty dumb, right? Since almost every Bugged Ones are girl, you know what's going to happen.
I really liked the colors and the character design. The animation is ok, it goes well with the budget.
The OP, ED, and the OST were forgettable. I can't even remember a single bit of the OP. The voice acting is nice tho.
Forgettable cast. I only remember Tamotsu because his name sounds like Mokkun from BnP, the rest were forgettable. There is a fanservice generator (the yellow-haired girl), Tamotsu's sister, and a red-haired girl who managed to kiss Tamotsu. Also, a professor with a really long name. After writing that, I realized that's a pretty generic cast.
Because I don't mind the ecchi part, I really enjoyed this. For those who hate ecchi, you wouldn't enjoyed this to it's maximum.
Pass if you hate fanservice/ecchi, watch if you dont care and need your daily dose of another ecchi comedy.
