"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. While Akuma no Riddle is nothing new or completely original as the series mentioned above, it is something that surprised me as I thought this series was going to read more

Ok, so this is my first review and I'll be as honest and thorough as possible for an readers.

Ok so basically Akuma no Riddle is about a girl named Haru who has to survive a classroom full of assassins. That's really the gist of it. That being said, let me move on to my scores and why I rated them as such.

Story: 4/10

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.
