The term ‘devil’ can transit a variety of reactions towards an audience. Here we have a show named Akuma no Riddle (translated as Riddle Story of Devil). And incidentally, we have an angel-like character with and energetic personality named Haru Ichinose who gets herself into a mess that threatens her very existence. Luckily, she’s not alone because Haru’s got a protector. Her name is Tokaku Azuma and she is not a pushover, not in the art of assassin anyways.

To call Akuma no Riddle a memorable art piece though could be both an understatement and overstatement. For starters, we have a diverse and colorful cast of read more

"The World is full of ___" - Forgiveness


What a season Spring 2014 has been, a lot of anime's have come forth that have, in way, became a lot more than what it appeared to be at first. Anime's such as Selector Infected WIXOSS that reminded me not to judge a book by it's cover to the underdog of the season in Ping Pong the Animation which turned out to be the case of the Cinderella story.

Recommendations

A bunch of highschool kids have to kill someone to "succeed" while following certain rules.
In Dangan Ronpa, they're stuck in a school and they're only chance of escaping is to kill someone without being caught, while in Akuma no Riddle the whole class as the goal of killing a fellow classmate so they can be granted anything they want.
One victor - for the ultimate price, both series involves a scenario where the main character becomes a target for assassination. Luckily, they do manage to make friends with an unlikely alliance who has their own skills in protecting them. And although different in man ways, they bond throughout the series and learn about each others' dark pasts. Both series features a cast of diverse characters each with their own set of skills and personalities. Expect grim scenes and horrific sequences when it comes to attempts to kill off their targets.
