Night Raid is the covert assassination branch of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to overthrow Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has led him to take advantage of the child emperor's inexperience. Without a strong and benevolent leader, the rest of the nation is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is far from commendable and that they will likely face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the revolution's way.

This merry band of assassins' newest member is Tatsumi, a naïve boy from a remote village who had embarked on a journey to help his impoverished hometown and was won over by not only Night Raid's ideals, but also their resolve. Akame ga Kill! follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire and comes face-to-face with powerful weapons, enemy assassins, challenges to his own morals and values, and ultimately, what it truly means to be an assassin with a cause.

Akame ga Kill! is the anime adaptation of Takahiro's shounen manga of the same title, which is illustrated by Tetsuya Tashiro and was serialized in Square Enix's Gangan Joker from April 2010 to December 2016. The anime follows the source material through the first eight volumes of the manga, incorporating events from later issues as well, before concluding with an original story arc that deviates from the manga.

Underrated series. I guess some people don't like sad Anime like this.
But that makes it far more realistic. So if you want an Anime without any plot power this is it.
Animation: 9/10
Story: 10/10
Romance: 8/10
Characters: 10/10 (okay i overrated other aspects but this one is genuine)
One of my favourites. Jut be prepared for Depression after finishing it.

Apparently i need to write more to post. But i don't want to give any spoilers. Now that i think about it how many people would read my review? Would anyone read it? Is my review even goo? I just conveyed what i felt. Also thanks for reading these bullshit.

Mixed Feelings
How You Might Find This Show: Akame ga Kill can be an enjoyable watch if over the top violence, cool weapons, no character plot-armor, dark themes and high stakes battles are to your taste. The story itself is pretty straightforward, but the way it’s told can really be hit or miss depending on the viewer. It can feel rushed or fast-paced for a war setting due to the show airing while the manga was still publishing, and wouldn’t finish until two years after the anime finished airing. Without spoiling who dies, you may or may not find it difficult, if not impossible to get attached ...

(ENG vers.)
This anime tries to be serious, featuring shocking deaths that are supposed to move the viewer, but it ends up being a joke in itself. Whenever a fight and death scene ends, right after comes a cute comedy scene to break up the atmosphere, apart from the fact that all the girls mysteriously fall in love with the unsalted protagonist. These silly and childish elements tucked into the middle of the work take away all the seriousness that the anime could have. Honestly, it was a huge struggle to watch all the episodes, and I think that even if it were a seinen this ...
