Akiba’s Trip #10 — “Potato”

March 8th, 2017

That about sums up this episode.


This appeared to be starting out with some kind of awful date episode, but at least Dumbface was idly playing a theramin as a background joke. That lasted for maybe three minutes before it got distracted into Yet Another Goddamned Advertisement For Curry, and never escaped from that black hole. About five more minutes on nothing but "Curry is awesome!" before it got to the main… joke? content? thrust? of the episode in a competitive eating thing and that completely took over until the closing seconds when they remembered how the show opened and tried to patch things up.

The big joke there is that Mayo eats a lot. And that's pretty much it. They take another five minutes to get to them even using some kind of supposedly 'wacky' methods of eating. Methods like… adding extra water? Adding frozen bits of ramen? And note that one of those is evil but one of them is good. And that they spend time gasping and then explaining every single aspect of all of those things. Why extra water 'works.' Why it's evil. It's another mountain of exposition explaining what the joke was supposed to be after it's already flopped. And there's only even about three of those jokes, leaving just some pants being ripped off to carry the 'humor' for half the damn episode.

Next Episode:

Festival/concert episode.

    Is that gimmick of’ they can chnage clothes whenever, but if they get them torn off by someone game over’ still going cos i’m confused or has MC bought a replica Rule Breaker from Busou Shoten.

    • LUNI_TUNZ says:

      For someone who’s supposed to die when exposed to air, Mayo sure wears an awful lot of short skirts.

      Not to mention she got stripped in one episode, but I guess they forgot about that little detail.
