Akiba's Trip: The Animation

An Akiba’s Trip animation, simply titled Akiba’s Trip: The Animation, is in production at animation studio Gonzo and will air in January 2017, Acquire announced during a DMM Games stage event at Tokyo Game Show 2016.

The project’s staff includes supervisor Hiroshi Ikehata, series organizer Kazuho Hyoudou, and character designer Hajime Mitsuda.

Here’s an introduction:

Akihabara—a broad-minded town that accepts anyone from beginner to advanced. Even if you go to Akiba alone, there will be someone that understands you. It’s a place where you have the freedom to do anything, a place that bares your body and soul.

In this city of Akiba, which jam packs everything from anime to games, maids, idols, junk parts, and B-class gourmet, battles are fought against “Bagurimono,” and an unyielding story of “boy meets girl” begins.
