Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed (Akiba's Trip 2 in Japan) is the second installment in the Akiba's Trip Beat 'em Up series by Acquire. The game was released in 2014, with its English version handled by XSEED Games in the same year.

The game takes place in Akihabara, a district of Tokyo famed for being a electronics and Otaku mecca. You play an everyday geek named Nanashi who attends a job interview only to be captured by a sinister organisation looking to transform you into an vampiric "Synthister". With the aid of a mysterious Action Girl named Shizuku, you escape your captors and decide to fight against the Synthiser conspiracy aiming to secretly conquer Akihabara. (And to do this, you must hunt down the Synthisers masquerading as normal humans and strip them naked. It's a Weakened by the Light thing. Kinda.)

Undead & Undressed was followed by the more straightforwardly Action RPG Akiba's Beat in 2016, brought over in English by XSEED Games and PQube for US and UK territories. The game would see rerelease in 2017 as Akiba's Trip 2+A, with the "A" in the title referring to content from Akiba's Trip the Animation.

Of particular note is that this was the first game in the franchise to be officially translated into English, beating all previous releases of the first Akiba's Trip for years. In 2019, XSEED Games announced plans to internationally release it for PlayStation 4 under the title of Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed, using the game's Plus version as its basis.

This game contains these following tropes.

  • Absurdly High Level Cap: The highest level you can achieve is 99, but you'll only reach around 60 by the end of the game if you do all the sidequests.
  • Action Commands: To chain strip, you have to press the specified button to seamlessly strip more clothes off your opponents.
  • Action Girl: Shizuku, Shion, Tohko, Rin, Kati, and Nana. To a lesser extent, so are the bystanders that you pick a fight with.
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: Tohko's side-ponytail and the writing on her shirt get reversed when her sprite is looking to the right.
  • Alliterative Title: Well, the subtitle: "Undead and Undressed"
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: During the final mission MOGRA is overrun by Synthisters, and the others cover your escape.
  • Anti-Frustration Features: Upon clearing the game for the first time, you will unlock the Bonus option to have any Affection-raising dialogue choices become highlighted when they appear, so you don't have to religiously consult a guide to stay on one of the girls' routes.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Some non-Synthister women will hit you with this after you strip their clothing off if they don't do a Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs attack or run off first.
  • Artificial Stupidity: The partnered AI does not grasp the concepts of chain stripping or dealing with groups of enemies. They primarily focus on tearing clothes and focus on one enemy at a time. That said, they're incredibly useful in distracting at least some of the opponents you face.
  • Asshole Victim: The guy who attempts to ask you for some money in the Radio Kaikan area because he spent all of his at a pachinko place. Though you can pay him off, it's much more satisfying to beat and strip his clothes for bugging you repeatedly.
  • Audience Participation: The PS4 version includes several commands viewers can use during livestreaming, which can cause effects like provoking fights or raining underwear.
  • Badass Abnormal:
    • Nanashi. In addition to being a Synthister, he was turned into Shizuku's familiar.
    • Tohko became Rin's familiar in her ending.
  • Battle Couple: Any time you team up with whichever girl's route you're pursuing.
  • Big Bad: Soga Kagutsuki.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Shizuku saves you at the very beginning of the game.
    • Rin saves you from Zenya Amo during your first run-in with him.
    • You end up pulling one of these near the end of the game.
  • Big Eater: Nanashi, as a Synthister, is supposed to feed on human vitality. However, he seems to be able to sate his hunger with abnormally large orders of food instead. It isn't clear if this is possible for other Synthisters and Nighteaters.
  • Bland-Name Product:
    • Occasionally. Usually happens with companies not based in Akiba.Pr
      • Notably, Both this and the anime actually manage to do a shockingly accurate job of showing Akibahara, complete with several cases of free Product Placement for video game companies NOT releated to Akiba's Trip in any way.
    • Pitter stands in for Twitter. The messages are called plips.
  • Blunt Metaphors Trauma: Kati messes up metaphors a lot.
    Kati: This is like one of those "truth is stranger than fractions" things, right?
    Yuto: ...That would be "fiction", Kati. Truth is stranger than fiction.
  • Cain and Abel: Rin and Shizuku.
  • The Cameo: One of the advertisements shows Nep-Nep in all her purple glory.
  • Clothing Damage: It's an actual gameplay factor. If you want to collect and not damage the clothes however, you have to remove them a certain number of times.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Each part of clothing flashes a different color when you're able to remove them; green for head items, purple for tops, and red for bottoms.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Averted for the most part. Except for boss battles, one opponent is often easier to take down than say, fighting against six of them. Especially if three of them decide to attack you all at once. Played straight if you have a long reaching weapon that can hit multiple opponents, especially once you get used to chain-stripping people.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Kati and lots of NPCs
  • Contemplate Our Navels: Prior to the final mission, the protagonist collapses and is carried back to MOGRA. While the protagonist is resting, everyone else laments how they've pushed too hard, forgetting that he's still just a kid despite having become inhuman.
  • Counter Attack: One of the game's mechanics. If their clothing is damaged enough you can even perform a counter strip which has an immediate start up, as opposed to the regular strip's wind-up. Enemies start to counter your attacks in Gamer and Otaku difficulty.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: This comes into play about midway through the game when Rin starts showing up more often. She is Shizuku's little sister, and prior to her leaving their village, she wrote a 50-page "note" telling her sister how much she sucks. But Rin later reveals she did this to uncover what was going on with Synthisters showing up in Akiba. In reality she actually still cares for Shizuku, and did this ploy in an attempt to keep Shizuku out of trouble.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: You dish these out on a regular basis, particularly as you get stronger.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Nanashi, he is transformed into what's essentially a vampire at the beginning of the game without the hunger for blood (see Our Vampires Are Different below) and you never get the option to say your powers are cool. You can only become normal in Shion's route or deal with it in all other routes
  • Cutscene Power to the Max: Zanya Amo. In cutscenes, he's capable of effortlessly knocking the heroes to the ground with a single strike, including knocking Rin Tokikaze unconscious from a single swing. In battle, he's just a mook with much higher durability on his clothing.
  • Defeat by Modesty: What you will do to defeat the enemies, from the Synthisters to regular enemies. Though it's justified in Synthisters, as they're extremely sensitive to sunlight below the neck.
  • Disguised in Drag: Some sidequests require Nanashi to dress in women's clothes to teach some playboys a lesson.
  • Double-Meaning Title: Three of them, actually:
    • Akiba's Trip: Akiba is going through an unknown adventure
    • Akiba Strip: The shopping district of Akihabara is sometimes referred to as this.
    • Akiba Strip: The game's mechanics involve stripping the clothes off of vampires, in Akiba.
  • Drunken Boxing: The King of the Drunken Fist strip style is based on this.
  • The Dulcinea Effect:
    • Despite meeting her only minutes before, Nanashi shields Shizuku with his own body from attack.
    • Gender-flipped when it's revealed that the life-saving kiss Shizuku gave at the beginning of the game forged a blood contract between her and Nanashi, which she is only able to ever do once in her life.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: A common enemy you face.
  • Ending Aversion: In universe with Striprism. No one likes the last episode.
  • Equipment Upgrade: A service provided by your sister. She can fuse other equipment to yours to increase their attack or durability.
  • Evolving Title Screen: Other characters join Nanashi in the title screen depending on which route you complete the game and whether or not you get that route's true ending.
  • Excuse Plot: It isn't exactly thin, but it's obvious it's just an excuse to make Nanashi run around ripping people's clothes off.
  • Fanservice: It's a game about undressing people to defeat them. But, much like Kill la Kill, it has equal opportunities to show both men and women either in their underwear or naked. In fact, all the three major villains are men.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: In-universe example; everyone pretends the last episode of Striprism never happened.
  • Fighting Your Friend:
    • In several missions you spar against Shizuku, Tohko, or Rin for training or to prove yourself.
    • In Shion's route, every single member of MOGRA will serve as your enemy.
  • Final Boss:
    • Soga Kagutsuki serves at the final boss on Shizuku's, Tohko's, and Rin's routes.
    • In Shion's route, it's Shizuku alongside a lot of police officers.
  • Foreshadowing: The camera app, which reveals Synthisters if they're in a snapped photo, also reacts to Shizuku in the same manner. Not because she's a Synthister herself, but her race of Nighteaters are pretty similar to Synthisters in the first place.
  • Friendly Fireproof: You can't hurt your ally at all while they're traveling with you. This helps when you're fighting a lot of opponents.
  • Gainaxing: Can be seen on some of the women you fight, especially after their top has been stripped off. Can also be seen when you turn your companion around to view them while they're just in their underwear. When you stop moving them their breasts jiggle a little.
  • Game-Breaking Bug:
    • Attempting to strip enemies when you have too many articles of clothing of the type you're stripping in your inventory has a very high chance of crashing the game. Though thankfully, this can be resolved by just selling some of them.
    • As the game ties various things to the game's framerate, running the PC version any higher than 60 FPS can make the game unplayable.
  • Game Mod: There's a fanmade utility called Akiba Interceptor that allows the PC version to become a game worthy of the Glorious, PC-Gaming Master Race. It allows you to up the framerate to 60 FPS, downsample from a higher-than-max rendering resolution, as well as a few other things.
  • Game Within a Game: MOGRA has Akiba Squad Striprism, a shooter-type game, and AdrenaRin, an endless runner starring Rin.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation:
    • Early on you're told to not expose any skin below the neck. However, you can dress in shorts and sleeveless tops with no penalty.
    • If you take Kati with you on your first trip to the arena, she sits the fight out because she's not much of a fighter. Never mind that she is capable of fighting before and after that.
  • Gang Up on the Human: Zigzagged. Your ally can occasionally distract quite a few opponents, but the majority of the time they will target you first.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: If you win a fight with Kati as your partner, she might say "Voittaa! Well done!". "Voittaa" is Finnish for either "to win" or "he/she/it wins". They were probably going for a simple "Victory!", which would be "Voitto!".
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Koma Sakaguchi is this in Shion's route towards the end of the game. He's your ally but unfortunately you cannot use any combination attacks with him.
  • Guide Dang It!:
    • The Fusion process isn't explained terribly well in the game, as you're merely told that Nana can make your equipment stronger by fusing clothes together, so you will probably end up fusing weak items nabbed from random people off the street. But you're better off selling said items, then using the money to buy items with higher stats in the stores, which gives you a bigger bump in stats per item fusion. Additionally, items gain more stats if it's being fused with the same item class. So fusing a shirt with say, a pair of pants, won't be as good as if you fused it with another shirt instead.
    • Nana's topic discussions when talking to her. There's absolutely no tutorial on how her conversations work, with four pictures changing seemingly at random depending on what topic you choose. Some of her activities will give you unique equipment, so there's a reason to bother. Fortunately there is a guide out there in case you're totally lost.
  • Hard Mode Perks: Enemies on harder difficulties drop better quality equipment when defeated. Additionally, Otaku difficulty lets some accessories that are normally awarded for meeting special conditions drop from random enemies.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]:
    • Almost literally. In addition to naming him anything, Nanashi's actual default name translates to "No Name".
    • While the text refers to Nanashi with whatever name you set, the voice acting can't do that. It usually just skips the name or replaces it with a pronoun. In one case, though (at least in English), we get this:
      Kaito Tachibana (text): ...We'd have no choice but to turn Nanashi in if we did that...
      Kaito Tachibana (voice): ...We'd have no choice but to turn the player character in if we did that...
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: The app given to you by Shion allows your camera to pick out Synthisters from a normal person. If you talk to them afterward, you get a new set of dialogue where you can either ignore them, or call them out, and thereby provoke a fight with them.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Done poorly, as bosses are much easier than normal encounters. The only thing preventing you from winning is them being immune to being stripped.
  • Idiosyncratic Difficulty Levels: From easiest to hardest, they are Easy, Casual, Gamer, and Otaku.
  • Idol Singer: Rin.
  • I'm Taking Her Home with Me!: Random dialogue from NPC's will occasionally have one of them mention that they want to take you home with them because you're so cute.
  • Infinity +1 Sword: The Izayoi Oboro, obtainable only by defeating the final boss. It's a broadsword that has extended range when you equip it, has a very effective mid attack that makes damaging shirts enough to strip them effortless, and has useful special attacks. The back version stands out in particular, as it makes Nanashi jump back enough to dodge any incoming attacks, then dashes towards the opponent and slashes.
  • Improbable Weapon User: The residents of Akihabara fights not only with wooden swords but with posters, soccer balls, baseball bats, glowsticks, umbrellas, arcade boards and dolls among others. Out of all the weapons available, there are only a few that are actual weapons. Some, like the anti-material rifle, aren't even used as intended.
  • Kiss of Life: If it hadn't been for Shizuku's kiss, the protagonist would've perished right at the beginning of the game.
  • Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game: The girl on the cover. It's amusing as she actually was a character from the previous game. Averted with the Steam release, which has Shizuku on the page art.
  • Large Ham: Some of your character's responses amount to this, such as calling Shion your long lost big sister repeatedly. If you keep it up, Shizuku asks you if you want an older sister that badly.
  • Lens Flare Censor: Successfully strippng off the underwear from your enemies will result in this, in a lens flare so strong it turns the whole screen white. Synthister opponents will melt away, while human ones will either run away in shame, or smack you before running away in the case of some female attackers.
  • Limit Break: Partway through the game, you unlock the unison strip ability which deals massive damage to one target and automatically strips them if enough is dealt. The meter builds by dealing damage.
  • A Magic Contract Comes with a Kiss: Shizuku says forging a familiar contract with a Nighteater only requires blood transfer, but she does so through a kiss with the protagonist. In Tohko's route, she chooses to become Rin's familiar, and they seal the contract through a kiss as well.
  • Male Gaze: One done during the underwear stripping quick-time event after you strip several people in a row. The camera will normally pan and focus on a random character during this event. However, if you fought mostly guys, and there is at least one woman in that group that you successfully stripped, the camera will always focus on her instead.
  • Medium Blending: One of the ingame movies is a live action one of a pop idol group.
  • Meido: Kati. Some of enemies you can face are these, as well.
  • Mind over Matter: Telekinesis For the Common Man strip style allows you to burst your opponent's clothes with psychic powers.
  • Multi-Mook Melee:
    • Some quests have you fight a lot of characters at once, such as the quest where you have to defeat all 48 AKB48 singers in order to complete it. Fortunately they only come out about 6-8 at a time, but expect to strip a lot of girls in the process.
    • Picking a fight in larger, more populated areas where many characters walk through on a regular basis may end up turning into this as well. What originally started out as a single opponent can quickly escalate as more Synthisters happen to walk by and decide they want to join in on the fight. Or if you accidentally hit regular civilians and they decide to fight back instead of running, which in turn attracts more civilians to start fighting you too. Then nearby police notice the riot in progress and jump in too.
    • Near the end of the game, virtually everyone you run into is a Synthister, and they will all attack you on the spot. Can get out of hand quickly if you take too long in taking them out or running away.
  • Multiple Endings: There are eight endings, two each for Shizuku, Tohko, Rin, and Shion. The aforementioned endings are classed as either "Normal" or "Good" endings, depending on how you talked to them throughout the game. A bonus sister ending happens post-credits if you complete certain conditions regarding Nana.
  • Naked People Are Funny: After doing a chain of undressing, you will trigger a special technique who allows to remove the underwear of your adversaries. It's actually needed to gain the 100% Completion.
  • New Game+: Accessible at almost any point in the game, via leaving Akihabara on a train or upon regular completion. You keep your equipment, money, and skills, giving you a leg up on your next run.
  • No Hero Discount: You could be out saving Akihabara from an immediate catastrophe, and the shopkeepers will still charge you full price for their goods.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: In an optional mission regarding getting a woman in her forties to stop cosplaying in public, this is one of Nanashi's choices for reacting to seeing her.
  • Non-Lethal K.O.: The ending reveals that the Synthisters you defeat became regular humans who writhe in pain. In fact, the only casualty in the game was the Big Bad.
  • Non-Standard Game Over:
    • If you answer with "No figurines, no deal. Good night to you, sir!" in the intro sequence, Zenya will comment on your obliviousness to the situation and will say he has no use for you as a result. He'll then tell his two henchmen to dispose of you by leaving you out in the sun and dumping your body in a river, leading to a Game Over. Ironically, this probably was a good thing to happen if you take Shion's route and discover that anyone who was made a Synthister and bathes in sunlight becomes human again as Zenya proves when he shows up again, fully human.
    • Taking the train out of Akihabara ends the game right there and then. Though it does offer a New Game+.
  • Noodle Incident: The last episode of Striprism. What about it that makes the others dislike it so much is not elaborated upon.
  • Not So Above It All: After a Striprism marathon Shizuku embraces the Sapphrism character with all the effort she can muster.
  • One-Man Army: What you essentially turn out to be. Your ally is helpful at times, but expect to defeat the vast majority of bad guys yourself.
  • Otaku: Most of the cast.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: The Synthisters suck the life force of others yet they can walk to sunlight unless their skin is fully exposed and when they die, they are brought back to normal.
  • Panty Shot: In camera mode you can actually go prone, and peek up women's skirts provided they're wearing a short enough one. There's no penalty or repercussions for doing this. Of course, you could always just beat them up and strip said skirt off too.
  • Phenotype Stereotype: Kati, though her blondness might be justified due to her being Finnish.
  • Poor Communication Kills: A major problem with Shion's route is that nobody ever tries to talk things out when they should. If they communicated properly, quite a few fights could've been avoided.
  • Police are Useless:
    • The idea of going to the police is brought up early on, but shot down because either they wouldn't believe there are vampires among the people, or they'll take the protagonist and experiment on them.
    • Police in-game have a bad tendency to disrupt your fights, being extremely powerful and able to arrest you, forcing you to flee elsewhere. However, they don't automatically target you, they're just as likely to go after whomever you're fighting instead. This can be useful if you get yourself into a large brawl.
    • A police officer won't even bat an eye on other fights happening on the street after they have made an arrest, and no more police other than them will appear on the streets afterward. They will still go into action if anyone manages to provoke them.
  • Product Placement: Everywhere.
    • One trophy is collecting 100 fliers with product placement of real stores in Akiba.
    • Some other examples are Dear Stage (a karaoke bar with their own Vocaloid) and m's (a sex shop department store), who both have actual storefronts you can enter in game, specifically for the collaboration points (and one of the mascots shoos you out of m's since Nanashi is underage, anyway).
  • Pun-Based Title: Akiba's Trip. The game is set in Akihabara - which uses Akiba as a nickname - and you have to defeat your enemies by stripping them out of their clothes and expose them to sunlight. Akiba Strip.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: After completing the game, you can change your model to a male or female NPC, or even any named character, including ones you will be speaking with in-game. Apart from a few dialogue changes, the story and gameplay stays the same.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs:
    • Some non-Synthister women you fight will do this to you before running away after you stripped their clothes.
    • King of the Drunken Fist and Secrets & Legends of Romantic Horror strip styles will deliver a barrage of furious fists when stripping clothes from the upper body. The main difference between these 2 stripping styles is that the Drunken Fist style will do it while kneeling down.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Shizuku and Rin reveal that, as Nighteaters, they're much older than normal human beings, with them being 170 and 150 years old, respectively.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Zig-zagged. People will react to you when you're fighting and stripping others, and any police officers who see you will jump in to break up the fray. However, everyone returns to normal once you've defeated everybody, and no one bats an eye as you're running around picking up items and underwear.
  • Regional Bonus: Acquire and XSEED added strip portraits for some major male enemies you fight for the localized versions. These would later be rolled into the PS4 version for Japan.
  • Relationship Values: Shizuku, Tohko, Rin, and Shion all have an affection stat which determines how the endgame plays out.
  • Scolded for Not Buying: While the shopkeepers are completely okay with you not buying anything from them, but the ones with 3D models will bob their head in frustration when you back out of the deal before confirming a purchase.
  • Serious Business:
    • Some quests have you go buy a rare item such as a cake that is made in limited quantities each day. As soon as you get it, someone shows up demanding you hand said item over to them, and end up fighting you as a result.
    • One sidequest involves a stripping tournament to decide who gets magazine ad space.
  • Shout-Out: Has its own page.
  • Shown Their Work: People who've actually been to Akihabara can attest to the accuracy of the game's version of Akihabara.
  • Show Within a Show: Striprism. The main characters in this are also the characters from Kodomo No Jikan.
  • Silliness Switch:
    • Some strip abilities are insanely over the top, with Telekinesis For the Common Mannote  being the most absurd.
    • You can change the model sizes to be big, small, or figurine style with big heads and small bodies.
    • In the PS4 version (and PC too) you can change various visual options to give the game certain appearances, like a manga style or green night vision.
  • The Stinger: If you complete all of your sister's sidequests and get her to reconnect with her friends you get a post-credits scene where she thanks you for all your help.
  • Strictly Formula: Subverted. Three of the four routes (Shizuku's, Tohko's, and Rin's) all follow a similar formula, with the only differences being what each character goes shopping with you for, a bit of dialogue, and all having the same final level, only adjusted to give more focus to the route of the character you're on. The fourth one (Shion's), however, explains a lot of what's going on and is much deeper.
  • Sustained Misunderstanding: If you do your sister's side quests, you can eventually find out that what happened between her and her friends was just a big misunderstanding on everyone's part. Or you can beat them all up instead if you want and keep said misunderstanding going.
  • Take a Third Option:
    • When you first go to the arena your allies suggest that either Shizuku or Tohko go with you. You can pick one of the two, or pick Kati instead.
    • In one field event, you have to decide for an arguing couple whether maid outfits or cheongsams are better. You can choose to say that shrine maiden outfits are better instead, and you happen to be wearing a shrine maiden outfit the couple agrees with you and gives you some clothes as thanks.
  • Take Your Time: Story missions will often sound urgent and needing your attention right away. But if you want to do side missions, Zenya Amo will patiently wait at the battle arena for you during one story mission despite his threat of attacking random people if you fail to show up, and Pops won't be mad at you if you take forever to deliver an item he asked you to bring to a customer. That said, if you do the story missions before completing side missions first, you may end up failing them that way, though the game at least warns you about finishing them beforehand.
  • Tickle Torture: The Smiley Method strip style has you distract your victims by tickling them before stripping off their clothes.
  • Video Game Cruelty Punishment:
    • If you beat up too many innocent bystanders, they start to attack you on sight.
    • If a police officer catches you fighting, they'll jump into the fray. They're very strong, even at high levels, and have the ability to immediately arrest you.
  • Violence Is the Only Option:
    • Played straight for the majority of the game, particularly story missions, where you often have to beat up a group of Synthisters to advance the plot.
    • Zigzagged in many of the side missions where the objective isn't specifically "go beat up x amount of people". You can occasionally persuade a group or character not to cause problems, and they will leave peacefully. That said, it's usually more fun to beat them up and strip them, and most of the missions reward you for taking the violent option.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: Any equipped clothes and weapons can be seen on your character. Thankfully, each item has only one stat and they can all be upgraded, so you don't have to sacrifice appearance for stats.
  • Violation of Common Sense: Laptops and computer monitors tend to start out with much higher damage than things that make more sense to use as weapons.
  • Weapon of Choice: The selection is bit more eclectic than what's usually expected, but they tend to fall into one of four categories;
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: The first fight against Zenya Amo can turn into this if you don't spend time grinding and fusing items to make your weapons and clothing stronger. Combat-wise he's not significantly different from others you fight with, but he has a fairly decent amount of defense and attack power.
  • We Buy Anything: Stores, and Nana, will buy anything you sell them. Even if you're selling clothing when they sell food normally.
  • Welcome to Corneria: Though there is a lot of dialogue in the game, after a while you'll notice many of them repeat the same things over and over.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Some dialogue choices you can pick are quite nonsensical or inappropriate. Choose them and your allies will chew you out for it.
    • In the sister's last sidequest if you choose to beat her up she'll call you out on it. If you start a fight when she and her friends are making up she'll really lay into you on it.
  • What the Hell, Player?: In one sidequest, you have to get a bunch of middle-aged women out of the sidewalk. The option to get them away by stripping them is labeled "... unfortunately." and if you actually choose to do so, the game asks "Seriously?"
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: After a sidequest you can choose to wear female clothing. As some outfits use a different model and thus have their own sizes, Nanashi can go from boy to having a fairly modest bust.
  • Would Hit a Girl: You will inevitably have to battle some female opponents through the course of the game in some story missions.
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: One of the less strange weapons in the game.
  • You All Look Familiar: Though there are a variety of characters and especially regarding their clothing, after a while you'll notice that everyone you attack/strip look similar to each other. A "Foreign tourist" could very well be walking next to a "Boys Love Fangirl", both of whom have the same exact outfit and hairstyle.
  • You Can't Thwart Stage One: Subverted. Shion can, but the other three girls can't.
