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.read more
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.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.
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. read more
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, i still remember the Background music cause it was kinda catchy and the OP of the song are decent, and the voice acting are pretty fantastic especially Ahokainen Arisa. (moi~)
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.
Let me begin by saying this, I haven't read the Manga or played the Game Series "YET" .So this review is totally a newbie's POV on Akiba's Trip.
The Anime takes place in Akihabara a Shopping District in Japan. Where these Weird Monsters(Bugged Ones) Possess your body and feed on the energy, simultaneously bringing out your evil side. The Only way to Get Rid of them, well the title is pretty much Self explanatory "A k i b a s t r i p" .Its pretty much right there YOU HAVE TO FREAKING STRIP THEM *Whoosh*.
Right off the start, the thing is dynamic. The MC is just an another crazy Otaku searching for interesting stuffs around him and somehow finds himself dragged into this Strip-Fest along with his sister and two crazy mysterious Chic's. Half way through i was about to DROP this one but somehow I found myself hooked onto this one,the whole thing is fast paced and pretty lame if you ask me but that’s the beauty of this show.
So is it worth watching!? well it depends, if you are free and totally slacking off go give it a try,im sure some of you guys might find it entertaining as I did.
Akiba's Trip is based off the game "Akiba'S'Trip", but it has different characters and a different story, so it probably won't spoil much content of the game. Also you don't have to play it to watch the Anime.
As the name and the tags suggest, it's an Ecchi and there will be Stripping in Akiba. In one way or another.
Story (really minor Spoilers of the first episode incoming):
I'll keep it short.
There are possesed (bugged) ones, that got aggressive and since the bugs are pretty sensitive to air the possesed ones will go back to normal after getting stripped.
Pretty deep story, indeed. Well, it's a ecchi comedy, I didn't expect a very deep story anyways.
I'll give the actual plot a 6/10 and the 'Plot' a 8/10 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Nothing that great, MC's and some Sidecharacters have a pretty cool design, other people are sometimes intentionally made weird (e.g. giant and rectangular head), which I personally don't really like.
The Ecchi stuff is usually censored, so you won't see nipples or anything down below, but you will most obviously be seeing quite some underwear. The censoring works with hands and hair most times, so not very much unpleasent censoring with strange light effects.
Anyways, 6/10 for MC's and boob physics.
Opening is cool, each episode had a different ending so far (where they also mention the artist of the songs), I liked that a lot. Voice Acting is pretty good in my opinion, the voices suit their characters well. Sound Effects are okay as well.
I'll simply focus on the Main-Characters here.
The 4 definitely obligatory MC's:
-The Male NEET, that suddenly gains powers.
-The cute Loli Imouto.
-The Female with powers that doesn't like how lazy the male MC can be.
-The Female with big Bewbs.
I don't know if there will be a lot of character depth, but I doubt that, but like before, I don't expect this in an average comedy Ecchi.
Sidecharacters are often weird, but this setup of MC's just works great together for comedic effect and everything, so 7/10 for that.
The most important part of any anime in my opinion, the personal Enjoyment.
If you are like me and go for Akiba's'Trip without expecting a lot of great and deep story and if you are just in the mood for a funny comedy with quite some stripping Ecchi in Akiba, you shold go for it, since you will probably enjoy it as well.
I had quite some laughs and have been entertained for the time beeing, so my personal score here will be: 8/10
I'll go with 7/10 overall.
Not the best Anime ever, also not the worst, but worth the watch, if you are up for some Strippin' Fun in Akiba!read more
Most likely the ecchi anime of the season. If stripping girls as a plot doesn't tell you what it is about, then I'm not really sure what else to describe this anime. I mean, it is literally in the title itself. It is adapted from videogames of the same title, but with different characters and its own standalone story. Surprisingly enough, the animation in the first episode is really smooth. BUT, all the episodes after that had a rather horrendous quality issues; so bad that I feel like poking my eyeballs with forks. The story is really bad too, to the point that I wonder why I still a haven't dropped this show already. I'll try to endure watching it for now, maybe because I am curious to see how bad it goes from here.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 :)
At first I thought it was Akiba strip Animation, since it's about stripping/tearing (you get the point) the clothes of your oppeonent to defeat them I assumed that was the name. Only just today I realised its trip not strip... Anyway Its one of my favourite this season so enough with this lame intro and time to get into the juicy bit.
A funny and enjoyable anime, no deep or serious plot. Most of the time its carefree but that carefree moments ends when its time to engage in battle (Not bloodshed but stripping and Tai Justu like stuff I guess).
The animation suits the story and shows off the kind of anime it is. I personally love their hair when they get ready to fight. It glows and gets my attention. If u wached Flip Flappers then you might regonise some similarities.
I like this anime because 1. its ammusing obviously 2. Its not focused too much on their freetime. #2 is where anime can make mistakes, when they be too carefree and gets boring but I dont like just fighting all the time either. I like the mixture.
Thats it for my review, thanks you reading :)read more
