Ah, Akihabara. Otaku center of the world. Filled to the brim with anime, manga, video games, computer goods, maid cafés, and vampires.

Akiba's Trip The Animation feels like a love letter to Akiba and every nerdy interest you can think of. Is it a masterful work of writing? No. Is it thought provoking? No. Is it enjoyable? I'd like to think so. Isn't that why we watch anime? To enjoy ourselves?

The premise is quite simple. Akiba has been overrun by vampires known as "Bugged Ones" and the only way to defeat them is to strip them of their clothes and expose them to sunlight. Depending read more

Sometimes an anime comes along that changes your perspective of the media. It questions your core values, your beliefs and makes you wonder will we ever see another anime like this. For some it can leave an empty void making you wonder what will you watch next.
But enough about incredible shows like Steins;Gate and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Im sadly here to review Akiba's Trip.

I would like for everyone to remember at this point that a Review involves expressing ones opinion. If you don't like it? Well good for you, I'll give you a chocolate digestive if I see you around (and a cup read more

The beautiful thing about comedy is that it's subjective. It's an extremely wide topic where there're a multitude of ways to go about it, with the main goal being getting those watching or listening to laugh at the end. So, how does one go about making the ridiculous plot of stripping off peoples' clothes entertaining? Well, by shoving in references of course.

Story: Akihabara, the place of hopes and dreams is threatened by an unseen threat. Bugged ones, creatures who lurk in the dark, seek to take over the otaku capital and rule over it by their own laws and values. read more

[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.

Story: 5/10

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 read more

If you know the game that this anime is based on you'd expect it to be fanservice city.Well let me warn you, it's not. There is some fanservice here and there and it can be quite nice but this show does not live and die off of fanservice. It actually lives and breathes off of comedy. And it is really good at it.

The comedy of Akiba's Trip is specialized and really out there. They don't settle with just making a job plain they really go all the way out there and really proclaim it. The fiendish plans range from silly but plausible to WTF HOW read more

Akiba's Trip is based "loosely" off of the video game series of the same name, as in it shares the same concept, but no characters, story, etc.

It's admittedly a train wreck. The characters are all extremely one note stereotypes, the story is messy and constantly throwing itself around in crazy places.

I don't understand who this was for. For the fans of the games, it was a letdown to have it bear hardly any resemblance at all.

For fresh viewers who hadn't heard of the game franchise prior, they should be disappointed by its shallow fanservice, constant misdirection, and mediocre characterization.

At least some of the visual read more

Akiba's Trip The Animation rekindles a love for Saturday morning cartoons that I'd forgotten I had. One of the last things I expected when going in to the series was a gang of crusaders defending an otherwise helpless city with the help of supernatural abilities and a quirky scientist. Villains are established and defeated on an episode-to-episode basis and, although it's a format that has the potential to run dry, Akiba's Trip read the blueprints well and constructed a very entertaining experience.

It's true that The Animation differs wildly from the game that it's based off of, but in no way should this be objectively held read more

Do you remember that feeling of watching a cartoon as a child? Would you ever want to feel like that again? If the answer is yes, then here you go, this is it but with boobs, asses and even DICKS!
*Disclaimer: Don't expect to see any of that though, it's all censored of course.
The concept like that has been seen before of course, this is not anything new, but mix that with the intent of showcasing any type of phase that exists in the world and you may just find a winner for some of us in the anime community. With that being said, I read more

I gave this anime a chance for several reasons.

One is that the art style stood out to me. I liked the colors even just on the picture representing the anime. Actually I think the art is the best thing about this anime.

The second is that the premise seemed light and funny despite its ecchi-ness. I don't respect fanservice... and naturally the less of it an anime has, the more I respect that anime. Despite that, it doesn't turn me off to a show. I tolerate it and even sometimes enjoy it... like we all do. (There's two kinds of read more

Another game turned anime adaptation, this better not have the video game adaptation curse because LA already had enough of shitty video game anime adaptations from 2016!!!...

<LA after watching it>

It's different in it's own quirky way...

For it's introductory episode, Akiba's Trip does bring us the setting as well as how Electric Mayonnaise gets formed as well as the threat of the Bugged Ones and how to defeat them. After that?, it has an episodic format where a new Bugged One threat appears, Electric Mayonnaise stumbles or is directly influenced by the new fad of Akihabara or Tamotsu Denkigai voiced by Haruki Ishiya's latest craze to read more

This will be my first review, I believe. Normally I wouldn't bother for a series like this, however I felt it was important to try and point out some of the major issues that many people simply haven't addressed in reviews thus far.

First of all, I have seen two major 'sides' when it comes to debate on this series. There is the side that argues that it fails on account of being an Akiba's Trip anime without referring back to the games from which it gets its lineage. Secondly, there's the camp that argues that the anime fails as a series in a traditional sense, read more

So why i like that serie?
Because is so classic for me, the story isn´t good and the art and the character are the similiar stereotypes that have other animes.

The true is really enjoyable, and the classic ecchi, and don´t have more or any thing that make that anime good. Only the enjoyment.

It´s a classic and a very common but i live it, and i can see that one time per week, serve as relax.

This took about a boy (otaku) that obtein a power that can beat "the bugged one" into akiba, and the lony way to beat them is undress!!
It´s really similar to the game, read more

TL;DR: hit & miss, you might like one episode and hate another one. Otaku parody, paired with a bit of action and romance. Lightweight, no deep thinking required, with an "awwwh" moment every now and then.

As other reviews already stated, Akibas Trip is basically a hit & miss for every single episode (apart from the first and the last 2-3 ones I guess).

Overall -
If you are into otaku / nerd stuff, give it a try.. you might like it. If you are only in for the romance, you can watch the first 1-2 episodes and then skip to episode 10.
I was a bit unsure because read more

In all i did enjoy this anime, however there were things that could of made this anime ALOT better, for example the main charterers were animated very nicely but then all of the side characters look like south park Canadians, like whats up with that? run out of budget?

second off the story was a shit storm, imagine you open a bag of sweets and there just EVERYTHING BUT SWEETS IN IT, that's how i would describe the story line, nothing really got accomplished, it was just a whole anime of side quests if they actually had a focus on the anime maybe, JUST MAYBE it read more

First, do not look at my rating/s. It is strictly based on enjoyment. I refuse to be a person who looks for flaws and assumptions only to ruin his enjoyment and memories of shows. And not to mention ruin the chances for others to pick a show just because someone trusted a stranger instead of them self.

This review's purpose is to write how I experienced the show, what I remember specifically and what I liked and to spread positivity.

If your overall experience is great, then changing something will only change the overall feeling. Which is not necessarily guaranteed to be a good thing as some read more

This isn't an anime good to see if you are looking for a good story that change every episode with plot twist or something like this. This is an anime to see if you want to laugh and spend time. The question is... You can't take this anime seriously if you want to enjoy it.
I am liking this anime so much because the main character and the blonde one. Tamotsu don't act like an usual ordinary main character of an ecchi anime.

And... I think this is it. Sorry for the bad english if I made some mistakes in spelling, and enjoy the anime :)

It's pretty bad, but good at the same time. It's good to be bad, but he does not take himself seriously from the start and it's clear.

The anime for many times has no meaning at all, animation is very inconsistent to bad, but it's very funny, fun, full of references to other anime and games (some really cheeky) and has some (few) great battles.

The characters have no depth, but this was purposeful, Akiba is very well represented here, which is one of the highlights of the anime and the soundtrack is good.

I found it ok, the anime fulfilled its role of being unpretentious.

Ps: Sorry for read more

Great. I like myself a good Ecchi anime.

I find it pretty cool and interesting how the anime is set in a modern, colourful society. I also like how the plot has superhuman powers but I feel like the technology used is a bit too unrealistic for the setting. The art is stunningly amazing and the video/animation quality is great, as well as having eye popping colours (and characters, which I'll explain later).

I really like how the show starts and has fast paced and peppy songs. I'm kind of into that, but it would be a little better if they had subtitles for the songs. read more

Warning possible Spoilers

To me this was definitely a hidden and underrated gem of the 2017 winter season because this was one fun and hilarious ride.

The story focuses on Tamotsu and his sister Niwaka who go to Akiba to enjoy all it's Otaku brilliance, but they get attacked by creatures called Bugged ones, they run into Matome who is defending Akiba from this threat and also with the help of Arisa they create a team to defend this Otaku paradise from this new monstrous threat.
You gotta love a story when it doesn't take itself seriously which is what this show does even though it's about a read more
