The AkuMa Series is a trilogy created by uniMemo-P and Bucchigiri-P as a collaboration.The plot behind this messy series talks about how Rin receives the help of a demon girl called MaRin to finally confess to her love, Len. MaRin lends part of her power to the original Rin, thus transforming her into a demon girl too. Then both Aku MaRins assault Len in an attempt to conquer his heart with disastrous (yet hilarious) results.
The series is quite random, full of jokes, parodies and fan-service in major and minor degree. Despite the randomness of the series, one thing can be assured: Len ALWAYS gets dressed up in an embarrassing and humiliating way at the end of each song.
The songs of this series were compiled in the album 「プリティパンティ☆悪マリン」 (Pretty Panty☆AkuMa Rin). It also has its doujinshi called Aku-Maximum, sold during the The Voc@loid M@ster 14 and done by You-ring, the illustrator of this series.

Other media appearancesEdit
- About the song "Pretty Panties ☆ Aku MaRin":
- The name of the Demon Girl actually is a wordplay. This one can be translated as "Evil Marin" (悪マリン Aku MaRin), where Marin is in fact a girl's name. Also this name is homophone of 悪魔リン (Akuma Rin) which can be translates as "Devil Rin". The name of Len's Demon version imitates this (悪マレン Aku MaLen or Aku MaRen), but fails ironically as Maren and Malen are actually girl's names. It's not known if this was accidental or intentional.
- The magic word Rinrenraririn that the Imps say
before undressingfor changing the clothes of their victims is the name of the first work of uniMemo-P.
- About the song "Pretty Fundoshi ☆ Aku MaLen":
- When Len and Tako Luka are undressing KAITO, he calls Len "the Great Magistrate". This is a joke of old japanese culture when magistrates harassed the girls in kimono.
- About the song "Pretty Panties ☆ Aku MaRin Ep. 0":
- The moment when Len is preparing to burst into Rin's room, his dialog with Gackpo and his eventual demise in the hands of the fused Aku Marin is a parody of the El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron's E3 2010 Trailer
- When the talk between Gackpo and Len repeats after the time reversal Len appears dressed as Lady Gaga.
- Len's Princess Dress is actually Rin's nightgown shown at the beginning of the video.
- It's hard to notice it but after the kiss scene, shortly after Len wakes up, you can notice that Rin is practically naked, barely covered by her briefs (making the whole situation even more awkward).
- The original video in NicoNico Douga presents various exclusive animations and effects (in a similar fashion to Double Lariat). Those ones are:
- At 1:30, after the MaRins blast Santa Claus (Gackpo) out, a chibi avatar of him with a knockout expression appears rolling in the upper bar .
- At 2:35, at the beginning of the 2nd intermission which correspond to the song "Pretty Fundoshi ☆ Aku MaLen", in the upper bar appears a chibi avatar of Aku MaLen. This one quickly escapes, panicked when the avatars of Aku MaRins appear shortly after.
- During the parody of the Shaddai's gameover sequence, when Takoluka talks she appears in the upper bar with a creepy expression.
- Continuing the parody of Shaddai, during the time-reversal the scrolling comments go backwards with the video.
- In the button-mash sequence appears a Combo counter. As is suggested by the buttons shown in screen, this one actually counts the "w"s of scrolling comments in that moment.
