A series of two games by Acquire (otherwise know for the Way of the Samurai series among others). Set in Akihabara, the otaku mecca that houses Acquire's office, the player fights vampiric creatures who pray on Akihabara's residents by tearing off their clothes. Unfortunately the player is also infected by this new threat and share's their vulnerability.

Despite the seeming Excuse Plot, the games have well developed (and highly eccentric) stories.

Tropes used in Akiba's Trip include:
  1. 48 episodes is a common anime length, similar to 64 episodes for western production
