Level 44 has arrived in Springfield! And with it comes a fan favorite Akira & the Happy Sumo, a sushi restaurant from a classic Simpsons episodes! Now I know you may be trying to decide if this sushi server and his restaurant are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Akira to YOUR Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Poison Poison Tasty Fish combo to YOUR Springfield!
Building/Decoration: The Happy Sumo
Donut Price: 100 donuts
Earns: $90, 9xp/ 2hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Gluttony +10
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Pretty decent payout on the building, great way to generate some extra cash in your town.
-The Happy Sumo has some fun animation to it.
-Akira, once you reach the part in the questline, will be able to generate free premium Bonsai trees for you every 36hrs. Great way to add some premium pop to your Springfield without spending donuts.
-No Character Interaction after questline.
-Several of his tasks are indoors
-Happy Sumo is on the small side.
Personally, if you have the donuts to spend, I say go for it. This combo (in my opinion) is AWESOME. I love Akira’s questline and the Happy Sumo…and I’m thrilled to have BOTH in my Springfield! (finally) Plus, “One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish” is a Simpson Classic…and one of my favorites!
From a practical standpoint it’s a great buy as well. 100 donuts is one of the cheapest character/building combo offered in the game. (only the Petshop is cheaper at 90 donuts) So, for a great donut price you’ll get a premium character to help boost income in your Springfield as well as a premium building that will earn you $90/2hrs. In my opinion this is a win/win.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you Akira was a purchase I made right away! However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process. Akira will still be there in a few weeks. So if you’re on the fence or worried about saving up your donuts relax..there’s no rush to get him.
