Akame ga Kill!
Daaaamn~! This was intense! The authors are still pretty much unknown but I think that’s all about to change. This was seriously good. I read a few topics about the manga and noticed that a lot of people couldn’t wait for the anime. I now understand why.
The artwork really did it for me. It is incredibly graphic. It’s not the sort of thing you’d expect from Japan. There’s usually a couple of tentacles waiting around the corner, but with this it’s nothing but blood and severed body parts. This stuff is hard-core!
The story does not fall far behind. It’s filled with corruption, betrayal and madness. This will definitely be entertaining for the next twenty-four weeks. I’m just curious as to how the protagonist, Tatsumi I believe, will function now that he knows that his two friends are dead.
Do I recommend this? Yeah, but I also warn you that this is really, really graphic. If you do not like the sight of blood or organs (even if it’s animated); stop right here. Don’t even attempt to watch the first episode because it’ll probably upset you.
Plot Summary: Tatsumi is a self-acknowledge country bumpkin who is nonetheless a well trained fighter. He and two companions leave their remote village to head to the Imperial City to find a way to relieve their friends and family from ruinous taxation imposed by the authorities. Yet the Imperial City is filled with unimaginable amounts of corruption and evil from supernatural sources. Tatsumi is immediately swindled after reaching the City and nearly loses everything soon after, but finds himself allied with an unlikely group of assassins.
