Akiba’s Trip: The Animation Season 2: Will it Ever Return?

You may classify Akiba’s Trip as an ecchi, supernatural, action, comedy, or fantasy anime. The protagonist, Tamotsu Denkigai, is a cosplayer who, due to terrible events, transforms into a vampire known as the “Bugged Ones” in the anime series.

Together with the enigmatic Matome Mayonaka, who wielded a baseball bat, and the otaku cosplayer Arisa Ahokainen, he formed a gang known as “The Electric Mayonnaise” to eliminate those monsters.

It all started in 2011 with the release of the first game in the Akiba’s Trip series for the PSP. The game series Akiba’s Trip was published solely in Japan and was developed by Acquire, the same person responsible for Divine Gate. Released on May 19, 2011, it was the first game in the Akiba’s Trip series. Akiba’s Trip 2, alternatively called Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed, was the sequel.

Akiba’s Trip: The Animation Season 2 Renewal Status

The first season of the anime was created by Gonzo Studios. As popular as the studio is, they still haven’t said anything about the anime’s future. Even the developers of the game are being cagey about spilling the beans. For season 2, Gonzo Studios did not decide on Akiba’s trip.

Fans are still holding out hope that the anime will be back on the air at some point. The first season of the anime didn’t do too well in the ratings. That is likely the primary rationale for the producers’ decision not to greenlight the program for a second season. However, there is still hope due to the high demand for it.

Akiba’s Trip: The Animation Plot

Teenage otaku Tamotsu Denkigai and his sister Niwaka are the main characters of this anime series, which takes place at Tokyo’s Akihabara department store.

Out of nowhere, creatures dressed as vampires called “Bugged Ones” start running amok in the city. These monsters quickly wreak havoc on the city, possessing everybody they bite. Just as one of these monsters is ready to attack Tamotsu, a mystery girl called Matome Mayonaka, who is brandishing a baseball bat, swoops in to save him.

The number of bugged ones that Tamotsu and Matome face together grows as they battle them. Unfortunately, a Bugged One kills Tamotsu while he defends Matome. He has no idea that Matome is a powerful bug attempting to save the city. She forces him to fight beside her in combat after resurrecting him as a powerful Bugged One.

“The Electric Mayonnaise” is the name of the group formed by Tamotsu, Matome, and Niwaka in conjunction with Arisa Ahokainen, an enthusiastic cosplayer. As they battle, they realize that exposing the beaten ones to sunlight after ripping off their clothing is the only way to kill them. They plan to take advantage of this vulnerability to defend their city from the Bugged Ones’ fury.

Akiba’s Trip: The Animation Season 2: Will it ever return?

The anime is based on the storyline of the eponymous computer game, as we said before. Producers have already greenlit an anime series based on the plot of their music video. Why? Because it’s not based on the LN series or any manga, unlike other programs.

As a result, the plot’s sources are hard to come by. The first season of the anime did not leave viewers on an unexpectedly high note. There were no unresolved issues that may have affected the next episode.

The first season’s series finale was titled “Akiba’s Last Trip.” This suggests that it was a limited series. The producers of Akiba’s Trip were unmoved by a fan petition calling for the show’s renewal for a second season. At this time, there is no compelling reason for the anime series’ creators to produce a new season. The second season of Akiba’s Trip will not be available to fans.
