Just finished the first ep, and it's 4 out of 5 for me. It looks really interesting, and seems as if there's some really significant development lined up for a lot of characters.

I have no idea whether they'll be able to do that to a high standard in 13 episodes, but I'll keep watching nonetheless.
Wishing you a happy life, and hours of anime!

Danganronpa anime done right, only with a lesbian twist. Fuck yeah, this what I've been waiting for.

The girls are either creepy, mysterious, or messed up...
I find this really interesting, can't wait till we learn something about their background.
Not a too big of a fan of an organization having a messed up leading branch.

This reminds me of a combination of Dangan Ronpa, Madoka Magica (leads remind me of Madoka and Sayaka hue), and the OP reminds me of Strike the Blood OP 1. Lesbian theme reminds me of Sakura Trick

I loved it more than I thought I would! The OP is one of the best I've ever seen! The voices are so damn good, especially Banba's (the way her voice changed from Mahiru to Shinya gave me the chills!) and Haru's (you gotta love that cutie *-*). Plus Namatame is one sexy lady, isn't she? And I'm not even going to talk about Nio, 'cause I wouldn't be able to stop :3

Can't wait for the second episode! :P

Pretty interesting first episode. I haven't seen any anime like this before though so hopefully it will be good.

Seems a lot like DanganRonpa. Might keep watching, but the first episode was kinda meh for me.

Out of my personal opinion I really dislike these all-female cast animes, even more if they are set in the action genre.

Also it's just freakin' annoying to me when these school girls take on groups of special forces or elite mercenaries (this is just a guess, I don't know everything that series after all) without breaking a sweet, because they are just ultra assassins for no apparent reason and magically don't get hit by bullets.


I agree with most of your points especially about the character casting, but this is a yuri manga, it would make sense it's an all-female cast (sorry sensei). The girls in this anime aren't your run of the mill females, they all come from very dark past, for instance Ichinose one of the MC she had to watch her entire family get slaughtered at a young age for her sake and then was told to live with a smile (why she's always smiling). Her whole life people have been trying to murder her and her entire body is covered in scars (scars on her legs in EP1). Check the manga out, it's really good, but the action is kind of a let down.

Damn. Around 3 chapters were animated. I don't really care, since it was enjoyable though. Isuke & Haruki are forever #1 <3
ED was great, OP was meh.

ehhhhhhhh i dunno.

whole thing feels like you have seen it several times before. character design is pretty standard aswell. quality wise pretty good though voice acting was really good aswell

feels a bit like it is trying way too hard to be creepy or mysterious

overall a bit boring. not because there was no action it just did not grab me at any moment.

but i will continue watching for now.

sagae haruki best design


not the biggest yuri fan but i knew what it was so i am not gonna use that as a negative point for the show. something alot of people should think about when they start complaining about things that they knew the series would include but still decided to watch it

i get the danganronpa vibes, but i feel like there will be some limits to the character development with just girls in the main cast, though i do enjoy yuri, i think having a guy or two, maybe even for rivalry might be nice, nor am i really a fan of our main character, azuma. haru reminds me a little of madoka, but not really in a good way. i'm not sure whether i will continue watching it or not, maybe another episode or two.

I find it ridiculous that they have sent 12 girls to kill just one weak, clueless girl. But whatever, this is mainly watched for the yuri, nothing else.

So far feels like an all-females version of Danganronpa, I wasn't impressed.

Yeah, like everyone that has watched DanganRonpa, I also felt the same feel of it in Akuma no Riddle but I think it isn't going to be so good as DanganRonpa.

This anime doesn't seem to have an "epic smell", if you know what I mean.

Seems like a promising start, I can feel the intensity for Azuma and Ichinose. CAn's wait to see what the next episode looks like. Azuma looked badass for the most part.

It was better than what I expected from the PVs, I still don't expect a masterpiece, but I think it will be some enjoyable.

And I hope they explain more of the plot next episode now that character introductions are out of the way.

Definitely going to look forward the next episode.

Ok! So, first episode was, pretty slow...but at least we got to see some of the cast of characters...that's cool. owo So, they are all assassins...then? :3

Overall, it was a good, beginning episode....can't wait to see the next one~!

It's not ridiculous though. Don't judge a book by its cover. If you keep watching, you'll find out what's going on.

2014 just keeps rolling out the yuri; 2013 had Free and AoT and now we have Akuma no Riddle and had Sakura Trick.

I'm a sucker for edgy dark animes so I liked this episode. OP I wasn't expecting to sound that great but it did. ED was ok too. Ready for more psychos!

I thought it was pretty average :T A bit too slow, and I don't feel like I know too much about anything. However, the characters are all pretty interesting (so far, the bipolar chick's my favorite :p). I wonder if for the ending, it'll be a different character each time? There are 13 episodes, and 13 students ;3

I'll watch the next episode, and likely through the entire series. Just not hooked quite yet

I believe you're right. If I read right each character is singing their own endings as well. (Maaaaybe...)

Being honest here, i saw the trailer and thought it was going to be the epic of the season that no one expects, and so far in my opinion, i'm right.

This feels more like Hitman than Danganronpa, while Hitman you just have a target and get done with it, while Danganronpa is more like "Survive no matter what", is kinda different, and it was mentioned that all of the girls have different objectives, but it looks like everyone has the same target.

Loved the OST+OP+ED, loved the characters, everyone is an expert killer, different than Danganronpa.

Question: Does the manga really have some yuri context like people are talking about or these people are just dumb enough to assume that only because they are all girls?

In my honest opinion, i really liked this, the characters, soundtrack, animation really got my eyes on, so definitely i'm going to watch this till the end.

It was okay. For a battle royal type of story I don't feel like it's intense or scary enough though. The animation and the OP/ED are nice but I just had to chuckle when they played those stock horror themes throughout the episode because I didn't feel scared or tense during those times.

I'll at least watch it for the yuri and to find out why in the blue world you need 12 professional assassins to kill such an obvious target with no chance of defending herself.

The OST of this show is above average.

I don't really mind an all-girls cast.

Haru is such a sweet girl. Thinking about her getting assassinated is sad. What's with those knife marks?

Psycho girls.

The first few minutes were a bit overdramatized, but it wasn't a bad episode, I actually liked it for the most part. Looking forward to more 4/5.

Ah, thx, i guess i don't mind some cute scenes, i was scared to the point of thinking this was going to be a mix with Sakura Trick and Danganronpa, lol

There are series that aren't labeled as yuri that have more yuri than this, but we'll see if the premise will deliver.

Looks interesting and character designs are nice...
At the beginnig of episode was reminded of Gumi Megpoid's Jinsei Reset Button song as Kaiba-sensei phoned Azuma and told that she has a "dame jinsei" while playing with dices in his hand. A nice coincidence?

In case you didn't pay enough attention, I was talking about Ichinose Haru being a weak, clueless girl.
