Q.E.D.



Demo of Things to Come


The district of Akihabara, the land of Otaku, the Mecca of Anime.


I am a secret agent tasked with the extermination of monsters known as Vampires. Today, we go hunting.


Hehe, yeah! He’s an idiot and I will suck him dry… I know right? Hehehe!


Target sighted. I don’t even need the vampire scanner to know she’s a blood sucker. Proceed to taunting protocol.


Yes, I bump her several times. Taunting her to make her take the first strike against me in public so that I can claim self-defense. Totally not because I am a pervert who enjoys doing this.


Good, she has taken a fighting stance.

WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM, MAN!?


OW! This bitch punches my knee! She definitely knows how to fight! No doubt an elite vampire!


I will expose your skin under the sun! Your clothing will protect you no more!


BEHOLD! THE ASHING DEATH OF A VAMPIRE!


Stop right there! You pervert scum!
Office, wait! It’s not what you think! Just look!


GYAAA~! HENTAI!
PUT YOUR HANDS UP WHERE I CAN SEE IT!
Oh my god! A pervert! GET HIM!


-- Scream omitted --


The cop pulls my corpse out of the brawl and arrested me. I gladly comply with the law.


Ma’am, please believe me! There is a great conspiracy in the district of Akiba, and I am a secret agent working with the government to hunt down vampires!
Yeah, yeah. Fill out your name so we can begin your silly story.

Q.E.D.




Akiba’s Trip is a Dressup + Beat ‘em up PSP game by Acquire. It is the prequel to the localized Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, but the stories of both series are stand alone, so you don’t need to play it in order.


Unfortunately, the prequel was never localized and remains in Japanese. Fortunately, there’s a faithful Chinese translation of the game (not the Plus version), so I will do my best to share this ‘gem’ to the western world.


I know, I know. Despite the creepy premise of this Cero C (equivalent of between T and M ESRB rating) game, the light novel length story treats the cloth-stripping mechanic pretty seriously and the plot is honestly great. The game focus on parody of the Otaku culture of Japan rather than fan service and managed to delivery an emotionally powerful story through its quirky and well-characterized cast. This LP will only focus on the comedy aspect of the game .


Let's enjoy all the wonderful and humorous moments we will find in this game.

Q.E.D.



Part 1: Assaulted


Kanta it is. The world shall taste my ill-equipped wrath!


Akibahara. It has been rapidly developing since the war. Now, it is the frontier of the modern world, a special region that strives to satisfy existing human desires while creating new ones.

Certain rumors spread about this particular place…

[A plan to hunt down recluse with handsome men and beautiful women]

[That maid café with a hidden menu where you can order… Amazing services]

[At a certain corner, there’s a male recruiter for illegal work]

[There’s a hackers underground that can help you obtain any information you want, but they want a certain special item along with money as payment]

[Unknown creature assault people at night and suck their blood]

All these rumors may sound like regular grapevine and it’s hard to take them seriously. Everyone just treats it as the joke of the conversation and ignores it.


Since I failed the entrance college exam, me and my friend from private school gets to hang out daily at the local Akiba district…

One night, my friend called me on my phone.

“Can you hear me!?”

“I am at Akiba… That rumor- Nooooo!”

“More importantly, format the D drive on my PC!”

He hung up after that and disappeared.

After the incident, I went to my friend’s house to wipe his hard drive.


I found a photo in the data. I know that location. No doubt about it, it’s Akiba. In the photo is a beautifully inhuman looking pale-skinned girl…






Sorry bud, I don’t hold back against human, it's impossible for me. Now, who are you again? Coming into this alley to find your friend? Hmm… Let me think. I only sucked one person’s blood in this alley… Recently. Ah yes, I recall tossing his shell over there…


Hahaha... Ah, he’s still there. That’s the guy you are looking for? Hahaha, no one even noticed him. All alone without food and water, but he still looks better than you. Gyahahaha!




Huh? Wh- What are you doing here, Rui?
Please let him go.
Huuuuh? What are you babbling about?
We met the quota for blood. There’s no need to drain more…
Tis, you are naive, brat. I have already gone this far, why should I let him go?
… Even so, this person…


Look, he climbed back up while we were wasting time chatting. He gonna run away if we keep loafing… Look at this pitiful thing. Accept your fate, human!
Brother!


DIE!
*Gasp*
Oh dear, too much? He could have gotten away if he would just ditch his friend. No point sucking his blood now. The difference between human and us is that they will die from a light injury like this.
… how could it…
… Bah, that’s why they are insects. I am leaving. Stack those two together to let others think they were fighting each other… After all, Akiba hasn’t been very safe lately. Thanks to us. Hehehe! Good bye.


… Sorry. It’s because of us… You tried so har-He’s still alive! But he will die soon… If only he’s like us… I will do it. No sharp object here… ? I will have to bit my lip…

OP




Probably… That person went missing around this area, which we tracked down to this alley…


He should be fine. No matter how unsafe Akiba becomes, Akiba is Akiba. It’s like our own garden.


A mummy hunter who becomes a mummy himself… Could such a thing be possible?
It’s to avoid this kind of thing that we the Akihabara Vigilante Corps are searching for him.
… Ah.


I have to go… This isn’t something that can be resolved with a simple apology…


Ah, someone is down!
That woman is…
Before that, we need to give him first aid! Look at all these bloo- Hm? Eh? That, external wound…
The wound, it’s closing… Unbelievable!
Ah, th-there another one here. Wahh… He doesn’t look good.
Call the ambulance!
There’s no need for that.
Eh!?
Who’s there?










(Looks like someone is on the other side of the door.)

How is it, did he recovery consciousness?
Yes, just now.
What’s the result?
Due to time constraints, we can only perform basic analyzation, but we are pretty sure. He's vampirizing… In fact, all his injuries have healed.
The blood of the noble is truly something.
… It might be worth testing. Which one is it? I will have a look at him.

Part 2: Interrogation[

Please explain.
Hoho, very well. Last night, my underling was chasing a man. You appeared at the same alley and was assaulted by that man, resulting in heavy injuries, remember? According to the report, you were almost dead… At first.
…?
After the fatality, a certain girl let you drink her blood. Although it is just temporary, this special blood allows a human to transform into another creature. A creature with superior physical ability and extreme durability, which is quite a problem for us. The blood you obtained not only attains all these capabilities, and even healed all your injuries.
…?
What a clueless face… Have you heard of that rumor in Akiba?

I will pick all the choices for this one.

Where’s the super hacker… !?
… No, not that.


That crazy woman who kidnaps children…!
… No, not that.


The evil being who suck people's blood...
Correct. This rumor is real. It is the very same creature you met. You can even consider them to be monsters. Although it’s more accurate to say they are a long-lived race of beings in Japan that’s similar to human, they are known as vampire. They probably are enjoying their draining of human blood while we are having this conversion now... It wouldn’t have been such a big problem if it’s just that.
Like a mosquito that injects a special chemical before extracting blood, it’s pretty similar for them too. The mosquito will only leave the skin itching, but the people sucked by them will feel a strong impulse of tiredness and become lethargic. The victim might even become sensitive to sunlight... Do you understand?


1) Not really.
2) Yea.

In layman term, it causes a strong compulsion for them to become recluse. They become NEET who do nothing for a very long period. At the current standard of society in Japan, it would be difficult for them to reintegrate. More so for youngsters without actual working experience. The vampire faction is using this advantage to assault the youth in Akiba. Reclusivecation Plan is what they calls it.

By turning the future generation into recluse while sending in their brethren to fill the resulting gaps in the workforce, sooner or later, human society will fall into the hands of the vampires… Only the twisted logic of a person in the 80s would come up with such a ridiculously elaborated plan. The damage to society, however, is undeniable... Which is why we are here.
We are to stabilize the unrest in society, and hide the existence of vampires from the public. Every single day battling them in the dark for Japan, for humanity.
… ?
We might look like an information gathering agecy, but we actually have the rights to employ military arsenal. Obviously, visible weaponry like guns cannot be used in public. So we employed certain procedural techniques to even get rid of the corpse. Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, they have strong durability and superior physical capability… So it’s quite difficult to battle with them.
That’s why, we need you. Although we can’t find the reason, you somehow manage to obtain the blood of that vampire girl… It’s only temporary, but the power you obtained is immense. This power is very attractive to us who are at a disadvantage. Do you understand? Will you work with us NIRO and protect Akiba from the vampire? Of course, we will pay you a fair wage… What do you say?


1) You tie me up and you expect me to do what you say!?
2) … I get it, I will help you.


Let’s drag this out a bit longer.

I told you, right? You obtained the blood of a vampire, and have become a dangerous existence. Even we would have a hard time handling you, especially at this hour.
…?
The vampire has a weakness. The very same trait shared by ghost and monster throughout history… The sun. Ultraviolet lights won’t do. Only real sunlight can disintegrate a vampire. Midoh is a battle-hardened fighter, but even she only has a chance under the sunlight.
That’s why we avoid fighting them at night… Which is why we couldn’t help you while you were assaulted… Sorry.

Once again, you are a dangerous entity. Tying you up is for a good reason, please understand. Now, let me extend my offer to you again, please help us… If you refuse, please understand what is to come. Now, what’s your decision?
Please. You saw the treatment of your friend with your very own eyes. Victims like him will keep appearing everyday. We are limiting the information of the media, and the actual numbers of victims is very high… Please. Lend us your power.


1) … I understand.
2) I don’t care about others.
3) Please tell me her measurement.


Choice #3 are usually the goon respond.

Have you considered this seriously!?
*Nod* *nod* *nod*
Well, what to do?
… B-but, why do I have to say it in front of Mr. Sejima…
It’s not a bad deal. He didn’t ask you to strip.
… !

1) Hurry and tell me.
2) Forget about the measurement, strip for me.

Let’s go with the #2.

…! … No…
… ?
D-don’t make fun of me!

Forget it! I don’t think he will risk his life to fight for us! I can’t trust him even if he becomes our partner!
… Is that so.
… Sorry. I am in a bad mood, I will take my leave.
Too bad. I thought I would gain another chess piece… Forget it. As you can tell, we will have to dispose of you. Such a waste.
… !
…Ah, yes. Kanta, I forgot to inform you that enough sunlight can get through that window. It won’t be long before the sun rise… Pray to god while you still have the chance.


*Push button to struggles a few time*

(Something is written on the ceiling.)
1) Read it
2) Continue to struggle.

[They… No, only Sejima isn’t fighting for the safety of humanity.]

[He only wants our blood…]

[... He has his eyes on the vampire lord…]

[NIRO doesn’t exist… But does have organizational power… That man is running a private army]









Let’s go back to the prior choice…

----------------
Hurry and tell me!
Uh, uhhhh… If I tell you… Will you be willing to help us?

1) … This and that are two different thing.
2) OF COURSE.

#1 will piss off Sejima this time and he will want to wipe out the Akihabara Vigilante Corps.

… Un-understood.
… S-since this is… For job reason… I will tell you… So… Beginning from the top… 86, 59, 89! IS THAT GOOD ENOUGH! ARE YOU SASTIFIED!?
… Alright. Midoh, untie him.


You just saved yourself. The sunlight behind that window would have gone through you. If you had refused, I would have let you sit here and become ash.

No matter what, you know too much… Now then, you can go home for the time being. Midoh will fill you in at Akiba tomorrow. Those Akihabara Vigilante Corps members will also be assisting us. Things will get busy tomorrow, so take a good rest tonight… One more thing, starting tomorrow, you must not wear revealing clothes. Small areas like hand and face will instantly regenerate under the sun, but you will turn to ash if you become fully nude.

Please be wary of that fact.
