Yesterday I wrote that I had already seen more intelligent titles than "Immoral Sisters".
Today I watched "Akiba Girls" ("Akiba-kei Kanojo") and I must say it's one of the most stupid plots I have seen so far. Wait a minute - did I just say "plot"? When it comes to "Akiba Girls" that's a contradiction in terms.

The approach to the different "action scenes" is no more elaborate than your average porn magazine - ya know I'm sayin'? "Hey, you're a guy and I'm a girl, so let's do it!" (Which is to say the hero is a passive one, he gets invited by girls every single time.)
The protagonist Nikita just stumbles from one sex scene to the next, and I consider it a miracle they did not use the Comiket scene as an excuse for another.

In the beginning, Nikita spots a good looking girl on a bench at a playground, goes home and fantasizes about her.

Next he wants to join a pop culture research club at university (an obvious "Genshiken" pun), opens the door and catches Tamae, a female member, changing into a maid costume with her breasts still visible. He waits outside, is then called inside, they wait for the club's president who lets them wait, and since Nikita is bored and uneasy and Tamae does not know how to handle the situation in a different way, they have sex.

He meets the girl from the bench in Akihabara, Ren, and shows her around. His sister Mei is jealous and makes a few obvious remarks, so he goes visit another of his sisters, Hatoko, whose apartment interiors consist of a bike, a framed picture and beer cans, to ask her for advice. Of course, none of the three are blood-related (because the sisters were adopted from different orphanages) and so they have sex.

He comes home, enlightened that Mei loves him, and confesses he loved her, too, and they have sex.

On another day Nikita goes to a handshake event of a cosplay model/seiyû, goes back to the club room and finds the very same woman, Renka, changing clothes. She is a member of the club, too! He waits outside, is then allowed inside and they talk about voice acting in Erogames. Oh, that's so difficult because she does not have much experience with intercourse, so, for the sake of training, they have sex.

After a visit to the Comiket, where the club's girls, Mei and Ren do some cosplay including photo session, Nikita is called to the club's room by Renka and Tamae and for no particular reason they have sex.

Nikita meets Ren in the dining hall, and she asks him whether he wanted to spend the night with her, because she cannot control her feelings for him and they have sex.

Sneaking back into his home he is awaited and punished by Mei. After some hours of sleep she goes to his bedroom to wake him up, and while he watches his favorite Hentai Mahô Shôjo Anime they have sex.

Mei is upset because of Nikita's "relationship" with Ren and seeks advice of Hatoko, too. To my surprise, they don't have sex. But with Mei gone for the evening there's no one to cook for Nikita. So without invitation, Ren shows up, prepares his dinner and then they have sex.

After cumming into her face he spots a halo above her head, which then emits a blinding light and she disappears, leaving him sleeping on the couch. So when he awakens he runs outside to look for her and finds her in the park where she appeared for the first time. Oh my, she is an angel who disobeyed destiny by saving his young life about 15 years ago. She was punished by losing her angel status, and as of this day, for some unknown reason, the verdict is revoked and she may return to heaven, wishing him happiness with Mei. The End.
(I might have mixed up the time line, but that's of minor importance.)

Such a waste of time... well, graphics are decent and what you get is standard sex with no whatsoever kinky extras. That is, there is an extra, if you want to call it that, and I mean these big female assets. If you like big, shaking boobies you might like the show just for the sex (there is nothing else anyway).
The voice acting is mediocre, I'd say. Renka and Nikita come across quite well, and Mei sounds... not so great, I didn't like her voice. The rest are just nothing special.

I wonder how after 125 opinions given the ANN gauge of this Anime can still be above average?

Hmm...
I actually liked Akiba girls. Not because it was good, but because it made me laugh nonstop due to how ludicrous everything was. The scene where Nikita asks for advice from Hatoko about Mei made me bust a gut. I mean, the only way that could have been more ludicrous is if Hatoko was giving advice while the two of them screwed. Plus, the whole time I watched it, I kept laughing over the fact that Nikita has absolutely NO desirable traits, but he still gets more beaver than twenty professional trappers (I apologize for that remark :cry: ).

Yeah, I think of it as one of those titles that are so bad that they're good.

That's part of how it works. Stripping him of individual traits makes it easier for the viewer to identify with the protagonist, plus the whole show was nothing but an excuse to see some action, Anime-style, in the first place anyway.

This is simply what people watch for the sex. Nobody really cares about the characters or story or whatever. The designs and animation are good enough, guys jerk off to it. Plain and simple. Hence it has a more than average rating, since the people rating it weren't looking too deep into it.

Ok so I saw Akiba Girls like, awhile back and I had given it a "Good" rating on my ANN list. Some are wondering why I gave it a "good" rating. Mostly I gave it a good or ok rating due to the whole cosplaying idea that was in there. I found the hentai to be hilariously bad and it made me laugh on more then one occassion. As far as hentais go comparing Akiba girls to something like Bible Black or an anime that has more plot, detail, and better sex scenes Akiba Girls does fail. I did find the female characters to be of some interrest though so all in all to me it was good..not great or excellent but also not entirely bad imo.

Thanks for the opinion.

Wouldn't that rather amount to something like "decent" instead of "good"?
Apart from the question whether Hentai can be decent in the first place. :lol:
