The first episode of the dub is now live on Funimation: http://www.funimation.com/shows/akibastrip/videos/official/akiba-s-first-trip

Episode 1

That was pretty silly, the whole premise of this show where an otaku fights by stripping aliens down to defeat them. It was entertaining, though highly cliched. Anyway, having watched this episode dubbed that it sounds pretty good so far. Tamotsu sure is quite the pervert, and he'll need to be that way if he's going to beat the invaders into submission, but he won't stand down to let shit happen seeing that he got himself killed trying to protect Matome there. I'll give it a couple more episodes.

And there is a reference as figures of Seiyu's Life characters, which is also by Gonzo, appear when the store that Tamotsu and Arisa were fighting over a rare figure get attacked.

Episode 1

The OP song is kinda catchy I guess? Felt like a really mediocre start with the introduction of the characters.

Niwaka also has somewhat of an annoying voice and comedy felt so-so at the moment. Setting takes place at Akihabara and the MC already likes what it has to offer with the merchandise. Mayoka is slightly fun to watch though with that badass attitude of hers. Arisa is kinda cute I guess. Mayoka's presence in the show caught my attention the most so far. I took the whole fighting and action as more of a cheesy gimmick in this show than anything else at the moment.

For those wondering the anime story is different and original vs. the original games.

I'm surprised Gonzo is still around, I guess they're hanging by a thread. I don't have a lot expectations for this show. Played the game on my PS4 back in 2014 and it was..... Meh. We'll see if this show offers anything more.

To me the first episode looked okay, but not more.

I played the game on PC some time ago and even though it was kinda silly, it still was funny and the mood and the characters were a lot different than what I've seen in the anime right now.

Hope it will be more like the game, but I guess I get my hopes too much up.

Gave it a shot, but just am not taken in with the character design, nor the direction its being handled.


Welp, my only compensation is that at least I wasn't expecting much out of this to begin with.

I actually enjoyed it, and am looking forward to watching more of the show. I've recently been replaying through the game, and while a part of me would have liked an anime adaption of it, I'm also kind of relieved it's not. I just hope we get an occasional appearance or reference to the characters, kind of how Kati showed up on one of the screens.

That is my thinking. This looks nothing like either of the games. (Important to note that the localized Akiba's Trip is actually the second game.) For that reason, I'm ... not feeling it. Might hang on for a bit, but this just isn't the same.

Production is pretty nice.

I enjoyed the games, so I'm mainly just watching this for the ridiculousness.
