First Impressions: Akiba’s Trip The Animation


Akiba’s Strip is a anime based on the game with the same name. The premise is pretty simple, Denkigai Tamotsu is visiting Akihabara with his sister when a mysterious girl falls from the sky and starts to fight what seems to be vampires by undressing them, exposing them to the air which they are weak to. One thing leads to another and Tamotsu is also dragged into fighting these vampires. Simple right?

To be honest, I found the first episode to be really dull and generic. Sure, it’s colorful and well animated in some  parts. But I found the characters so unmemorable that I had to google their names right after watching the episode when writing this post. Oh and then there is the character called Arisa Ahokainen who was just annoying to me. Specially the fact that every time a character looked at her boobs they decided to play this sound of a cow mooing. That’s really classy might I say!

But I have to give praise where it is due. One thing the show has going for it is that it is really colorful and well animated when it wants to be. It was really enjoyable to look at, even if the story and the characters really didn’t do it for me. On that fact alone, I am probably going to give this show two more episodes to see if it goes anywhere interesting, even if I am not expecting it to.
