Akiba’s Trip 2 Has An Anime Crossover And What If Manga

By Spencer . November 25, 2013 . 10:33pm


The crossovers for Akiba’s Trip 2 keep coming. Acquire announced a free costume that lets players dress their partner character up like Sue from Genshiken: The Second Generation. In the anime series, Sue is an American student at Shiiou University who is obsessed with anime and manga which makes her fit in perfectly with the game.


Akiba’s Trip 2 players can get Sue’s one piece dress as a free costume on the PlayStationStore.

Acquire also partnered with Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase artist Keitaro Arima to create a what if comic for Akiba’s Trip 2. No details about where it will be released, but it’s in the works.

    Oh no! Nana became a villain!

  • Dark Zerato

    Hurry up and make an Akiba’s trip anime, Acquire. Can’t wait for it.

    • Loved Sue and loved Genshiken. Hoping we still get a localization sometime, but I agree that we need an anime right away too lol

    • Shippoyasha

      I think the game’s premise is more fit for an anime. Plus, the devs still needs to work on making the gameplay feel more fluid and the character animations less wooden. Both elements are not going to be issues if they make an anime with a decent studio behind it.

    • Dark Zerato

      I think the game setting can be adapted into an anime very well. The characters, Akiba, vampire,…You can see all of those things in many animes.

    I’m glad most of the DLC is free. It being DLC and not in the game itself would probably make it easier for a western company to pick up by avoiding the tangled net of who each thing is licensed to (Huge SEGA signs, among other things, are still going to be an issue though)

  • HassanJamal

    I was wondering if that was Sue based on the thumbnail, thankfully I was right. And, I want this game more now.

    One piece dress?
    That isn’t really an advantage….
    One strip and voila…dead…
    Or maybe 2 strip with head equipment…

    But is this a good and fun game, in the end?
    Did someone import it?

  • FlyingPony

    I like Genshiken so much (first generation, not the second gen), and Sue is my favorite character after Madarame. Too bad Madarame isn’t there, but I can live with Sue~

    Give us localization! =D
