Akiba’s Trip #05 — “Buy Street Fighter V!”

February 1st, 2017


Boy, I hope they got a nice kickback from Capcom for this.

KonoSuba's episode this week had one joke ("Darkness is from a noble family… and that is not like her regular personality!") and about 80 thousand times as many closeups of cleavage, boobs, clothes with boob pockets three cups too large for the characters, and wet boobs. 


Which isn't to say that this hasn't also apparently run dry of any form of writing, it just happened to have a lot fewer closeups of balloon tits, both on characters who have previously been B-C at best, and ones exploding from DD to "will need back surgery before they're 25." Not as awful as last week, but there's a rich vein of comedy and satire they could've mined here, and instead, we got an extended advertisement for Street Fighter. Not even Street Brawler, or Road Fighter, anything like that. Just straight up Street Fighter. It put the same amount of effort into the training montage in the first half. At this point, I feel like if I saw a normal training montage, that would be unexpected enough to possibly pass as a joke. And that was the 'meat' of the first goddamned half of the episode. 

The content wasn't even really fighting game related anyway, and the things that were somewhat relevant, were still more focused on explaining everything to a ridiculous degree rather than actually being funny. Hell, one of the jokes that they spent goddmaned close to a minute explaining, and then another few minutes stretching out is one of the 'favorite' screenshots I see passed around from Kamiori ("people fight harder when mostly naked to hide their shame"), which barely passes muster as a throwaway line, yet was the primary 'humor' of this episode from around 15:30 through 18:45. Over three goddamned minutes on that because they had to introduce it, explain it, demonstrate it, do it again, show that, and then do it a third time. My god, Gonzo.

    Should’ve been the girl who did the nonsensical handstand, she has panties and passion, tamotsu has a dick.

    Could be worse.

    Could be an episode devoted to trying to sell Guilty Gear Isuka.

    (Yes, that DID happen.)

    NEVER! I would rather buy any other fighting game. In fact I did, right now both SFV and GGXrdREVELATOR are on the PSN store for 19,99, of course I bought GG
