Takeshobo's Web Comic Gamma website began serializing a manga adaptation of Acquire's Akiba's Trip 2 video game for the PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita on Thursday. The manga's art is penned by Rei Kusakabe (Nephylym).

The game's original story takes place in Akihabara, which has been invaded by vampire-like creatures known as Synthisters that feed on the residents' will to live and socialize. The only way for the protagonist to defeat the vampires is to strip their clothing and expose them to the sunlight. However, the protagonist has been turned into a Synthister himself.

The PS Vita and PS3 versions of the game shipped in Japan last November, and a PlayStation 4 port of the game with additional features is scheduled to be released in Japan on July 3. Poyoyon Rock designed the characters for the game.

XSEED Games has licensed the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 versions of the game for North American release, and plans to ship the game under the title Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed this summer.

DrMaster once licensed Kusakabe's Nephylym manga for North America, and released part of the series..
