Akiba’s Trip #08 — Wrassling

February 22nd, 2017

Komugi did it better is basically the theme of this show.


Another episode that mostly only succeeded in reminding me of Nurse Witch Komugi doing the exact same thing, only Komugi did an actual parody, while this once again kind of merely falls into a shot for shot remake with some weak puns before calling it a day. And that's only even for the second half of the episode. The first half was little more than exposition before it took the bad kind of left turn into what was supposed to be the meat of the episode. There's so much that could be done with pro wrestling too; from references to parody to just straight up fanservice. But nothing. Nada. Just the world's blandest pro wrestling bit. The closet thing to exaggeration that this episode had came in the first few minutes before the OP even played, and that was kind of it for the humor in the episode. There wasn't even a sappy moment to cap things off. I just don't get it. I really, really don't. What the hell was this episode even supposed to be?

    Dude, wrestling cosplay. Duh! Well, and watching chicks wail on each other is always kinda funny.
