Alright, SO.

Najenda living on. That is also something I wouldn’t have predicted. If anything, she’s the one character I kept on expecting to die — if not during the series, then during the final battle. What are the odds she’s left standing.

And Akame. To the very end, I still think naming this anime “Akame ga Kill” isn’t fitting. Akame has had a very equal role in the series to the rest of the cast. The only exception is that she’s the very VERY last member of Night Raid to survive aside from Najenda. But she got an entire ED devoted to her, and her presence is prioritized in the OP, just as much if not more than Tatsumi. Maybe because of the overarching plot with her sister? But very, very strange. I was expecting her to be a lot more prevalent. Oh well. I’m not complaining. (Although I am astounded she’s the audience’s favorite character from the show … by a long shot, too. They probably just like her sexy black hair or something.)

I also can’t believe how well-received Esdeath is. She has her charm but she’s ultimately wicked and psychotic to the core. Ethically, she’s on the evil side of the spectrum. Yeah, she’s a babe. Yeah, there was some entertaining scenes with her. But I was relieved seeing her beaten for good. And then she, the leading antagonist of the series, wraps her body around the hero’s corpse, buries them in ice, and evaporates them both. It sucks knowing Tatsumi probably wouldn’t have liked that.

Well. This show had a lot of strange and unconventional plot points, so I wouldn’t have been surprised if the series ended stale or without a happy-ever-after. If anything, the fact that the Revolutionary Army triumphed and perished all wrongdoings is the biggest surprise of all. That and killing off — the very peak of what it means to be a protagonist — Tatsumi.

What a ride. This is the first anime I’ve seen like this in a very long time.

P.S. I hear the manga is DRASTICALLY different from the anime. The anime is like a reincarnation with numerous routes of its own. I hear many of the mainc characters actually live on in the manga. That's very relieving to hear. That the characters that people (especially the anime-only people who don't normally read manga) have grown to love can continue their lives in an alternate (if not 'original') version of the story.

P.S.S. This took approximately 49/10000th of my life to finish, or a little over a month. When you devote a month of your life to watching and thinking about an anime -- and then completing the final episode -- it hits, fam.

If anyone's sad about the series ending, I'd recommend watching the original net animations (Akame ga Kill! Theater) for just a squirt more of the series. It's all original content and features the same VA's. It's interesting to say the least.

Akame ga kill *roll credits*

I enjoyed the ride despite the show's weaknesses and after 23 episodes, why should they change their routine? Everybody in this show got the Negan treatment 'No exceptions!'and got their heads beaten in.

The ending was so bad. Kill the kid emperor for being a puppet, frame the last survivng member for something, so there can be a spin off.. Also kill Leone in the most pathetic way possible but still make her able to say goodbye. What? You wanted some memorials like a Tatsumi Road or Lubbat Plaza? No emotional stuff here, even Tatsumi's body gets destroyed. This anime subverted expectations before it was cool

The show is a must see. The world building is ok, the characters can carry the utterly weak plot, but what makes this show so memorable is how anyone can die anytime and people can get crazy.The imperial arms, the metaphor for unique powers are also interesting to witness. Sadly, this show lacks any depth and remains far below where it could have been.

I give it a 6/10. Entertaining yet so disappointing.

Overall, satisfied with the Akame vs Esdeath fight, even though best girl dies, she dies with Tatsumi (whether he wanted that or not...). I was literally happy though because one of the characters I picked at the beginning was going to live!.... and then she proceeds to get shot multiple times.... and then dies in the streets?!?!? *sigh*

Nonetheless, Akame continuing on as the badass assassin she is was cool, same with her using the trump card, nice twist at the end.

Overall, give it a 7/10, but it was an 8/10 for me up until around episode 19. Last few episodes were not bad per se, but felt like they just started killing off people to kill them off.

Why slicing herself with Muramasa didn't kill Akame?

Leone died like street whore, thanks Takahiro and White Fox.



— Probably because Akame is the user of the sword (to activate her special abilities, she must slice herself a bit). In my opinion, the user of the sword receives immunity to the sword, making it impossible for their weapon he used against them. A defence mechanism, perhaps?

One of the best anime fights ever made, sadly that its the only positive thing about the last episode. Leone's death was pretty stupid lmao, she could have avoided all the shots if she had taken the gun from Honest but no! -.- Finally, the Revolutionary Army and the 'revolution' is just a copypaste of the French Revolution in the end. Everyone knows the disaster that followed that revolution, so the Emperor's execution will not be the last bloodshed as the series claims. With the lack of gray area in this show, it is unrealistic that everything is fine after the revolution. I think that the Emperor was hardly at fault for his actions since he was just a kid listening to a manipulative man.

The trainwreck since the first episode is over. Some people disliked the anime after it went heavy anime original but the problem is that the source is not good either. The bad guys except for the former guard from early episodes are just generic villains like the Irregular at Magic High School, maybe some of them are iconic like Esdeath but nothing more! A disaster! Important characters deaths are 90% dumb and bad written! The only exception is Bulat, I want to add that the series has a lot of shock value to the point that I was tired of it. Pacing over the place for 24 episodes while I liked characters interactions, Akame ga Kill! is trash. 2/10 for the anime.

The direction this anime took sure was strange and probably controversial as well. Almost felt like a cop out, the last five or so episodes. I also find it strange that Akame isn't that relevant until the last few episodes as well, not the strongest "main" character you'll ever see. 8/10 until episode 19, 7/10 for the whole series.

This anime as a whole was amazing in my opinion, but those last two episodes really were a huge step down from the amazing start.

Look...I don't really watch Akame ga KILL!

My wife decided to watch this garbage, and I occasionally glanced up from my computer to say: "why are you watching this garbage?" To which, she said: "this is good garbage..." And there you have it, that's why I'm here.

Thanks for reading. Have a nice day!

Got into this anime expecting complete and utter trash, but watched it regardless because I wanted to give an honest rating. Was better than I initially expected, but just by a bit- a very slim margin.

This is the epitome of standard popcorn anime, this is what you'd compare to your mindless cash grab summer blockbusters. It just be so MEH that it ALMOST hurts. That said, it wasn't bad enough to drop it halfway through, there were a few things that kept me wanting to finish it, and I guess that's a plus in their book. I wouldn't say it was a painful trudge to get through it all, but once it was over, it just disappeared from my mind just like that.

Esdeath is bae and she make me hard triple s tier waifu marry me pls

4/10. Noobs will enjoy probably, pros might die

Despite how angry this anime made me and how much it made me cry.. It was one of the better animes I've seen recently. I wish the outcome could've been different but it wouldn't have felt the same then. 9/10

Knowing it was a filler ending, I'd say it did completely OK (nor bad nor good). Somethings were really dumb, but I'm glad it was quickly over after it diverted from the manga.

This show is one of the worst anime I've ever seen in terms of quality for sure (especially since I can point out so many stupid things about this show on a writing/character basis), but while I would give it a 1/10 on MAL, it's not quite overall the worst ever due to the fact that I wasn't too bored by it, which is at least better than the tons of anime I have at a 1/10 for being such a painful drag to watch while having terrible writing/characters to go along with it.

Oh yeah, and regarding the finale, it sucked too. Abrupt Akame vs Esdeath fight happens out of nowhere after the death of Tatsumi, who like the rest of the cast who died before him, felt like a complete afterthought except the scene where Esdeath chose to die by Tatsumi's side by exploding them together in ice. Plus Leone dying like that at the very end felt incredibly stupid too and added absolutely nothing to the story or the emotional value of it whatsoever, although I rate the minister for actually having the brain to just unleash all of his bullets immediately on her instead of wasting time like a normal anime villain in situations like those. The payoff felt unsatisfying too without any interest left in it whatsoever. Really, this whole finale and whole show was garbagio.

I'm not sure whether to give this a 6 or a 7.

Starting off, the first 3/4 of the anime were boring and unremarkable. It only really kicked off towards the end.

The animation was GARBAGE. The only time I was impressed was in Mine's last fight scene against the mechanical girl with the freaky dog - that was some Attack on Titan level animation. Why couldn't they do the same with the rest of the anime?

I feel like the revolution "story" was good, but really the last couple of episodes were just a compilation of character deaths. It's like the writer had a mission to kill off one character every episode.

There were some beautifully sad moments (Bols' death) and some purely stupid moments (Mine's death just as she confessed her feelings).

I think I'll give it a 6, I had to force myself to watch the first 15 - 17 episodes. The only thing that saved the show was the characters.
I am not a weeb, I simply enjoy 2D girls

No matter how much whining you see in these comments, the polling shows only 24% of people saw this show unfavorably. A super majority of people like this show, and many love it. Dont let the miserable people who average a score rating of like 5 effect your view of the show

In fact I quite enjoyed it and am surprised that most reviews I saw rank it so low (like 4 or 5). I think that 7.5 on Mal though is a fair rating for it. Still I never thought the show would be so brutal. Almost everyone dies including the MC! That's also y I probably liked it though, really caught me off guard

Yeah this is about anime which I quite enjoyed (last episode was satisfying).
I knew this anime is sad and there's lot drama so why whine about it. There's tons of safe shows like tensura, go watch them. We're not going to see any shounen like this soon.

Akame pulled the most ridiculous stunt outta her ass to finally slay Esdeath once and for all, who's the weak one now huh? You who relied too much on your freeze time ability!

So let's see... Night Raid, the very force that spearheaded this entire revolution, let's see how they turn out shall we.

  • Sheele died, her body is devoured
  • Bulat died, his body unknown, probably pushed into the depths of the ocean
  • Chelsea died, her body is devoured
  • Lubbock died, his body unknown, probably cremated or dumped in a mass burial by the Imperials
  • Susanoo died, his body shattered by Esdeath
  • Mine died on Tatsumi's hand, the only member whose body has a proper burial
  • Tatsumi died, his body shattered along with Esdeath
  • Leone died, her body left to rot and decay in the alleyway all alone


Out of everyone, only Mine got a proper burial, and out of everyone, only Najenda will see her name be written down in history since she is also a core member of the revolutionary army. The rest are all but forgotten as they should since they're a group of assassins, they're the unsung heroes known only by the few... Najenda will serve the last few years of her life and die properly as long as there're no assassinations, and Akame will live on to purge the remaining filth off the face of the empire for as long as she lives.

What a shit show with the most fucktastic of event happening left and right. A literal trainwreck, nay, shipwreck! And yet as much as I hate to say this, this show has an exceptionally well-made ending. Literally, every single conceivable thing is shit, but at least they ended with a concrete ending. Still, you can dress up trash with a stainless steel, luxuriously made trash can but it's still trash in its core. But then again, it's pretty nice to watch.

I dont really understand all the rage for this anime lol. Everything was quite nice until the end. Trainwreck means the ending went down to shit but I thought it was pretty solid. Night Raid killed the emperor, his advisor and esdeath just like they planned, the empire is under Najenda's rule and all night raid died to achieve that which is basically what was planned since the beginning and was done in a pretty linear way, all of that was also done in the same manner as earlier episodes just more epic. A trainwreck is something like kabaneri of the iron fortress where stuff pops out in the last episodes which wasnt planned and just shit on pervious episodes.
Some stuff are silly and I admit it but didn't ruin it for me: Akame's after image, Leone's unnecessary death, Run fighting Night Raid in the beginning for no real good reason. All can be somewhat excused so it wasnt that big of a deal. Everything else was pretty nice and satisfying. The advisor's death was nice. Episode 23 in particular was 10/10 in the animation department, even episode 24 didnt have that much budget. Tatsumi's death was meaningful and fitting and genuinely good. All other deaths were mainly fitting as well. Music was very well done, "Gekisen" was great in particular. The animation was well done as well, for a 24 episode show it did have consistent quality. Some really fun ideas that you don't see in other run-of-the-mil seinens. All in all it was a really fun re-watch I give it a very deserved 8/10 mainly for enjoyment even though I already knew all the spoilers. As I see, the undeserved rage and low mal score is mainly coming from manga readers which should learn the difference between manga and anime adaptation and viewers who didn't like that their favorite character died which is just silly. Since episode 5 you should've known that almost anyone could die at any moment but whatever.

7/10 for me, it was nice that none of the characters had plot armor but it still doesn't change the fact how all the fights were full of power ups pulled out of ass.

The last image doesn't need any explanation. I'm very glad Wave, at the very least, and the embodiment of purity, made it to the end. I was shocked to see Run was a good guy -- but it was also kinda obvious when (in that one episode) he was seen walking down a main road with Esdeath and acting suspicious like he had ulterior moments. Also, can ewe agree that the red/white checker pattern is aesthetic af?

Any who, those other three images also had me wondering. WHO exactly is that woman with the sandy hair, and the blonde child with the soup?

I know that there are some manga characters that appeared as cameos in the anime but didn't really have any roles. Perhaps these two female characters had something more to do in the manga?

And then the third image of the yellow, pink, and blue appearing children. My interpretation -- and I can almost guarantee I'm right -- is that it's a nod to Mine, whose goal in life was to end discrimination. I'm guessing having pink hair (and dressing in pink) implies you're a foreign and have a potential to receive prejudice. Interestingly, I guess people with blue hair (and blue clothes) or yellow hair (and yellow clothes) can also be foreigners, hehe.

But yeah, I'm wondering about the first three images this person screencapped. Are they more prevalent in the manga?
the woman and child is the guy from the Jaegar’s who got killed by Chelsea, Wife and daughter. You saw them interact with each other earlier on in the series

Felt a lot of pain during this fight. It's disrespectful not letting Tatsumi rest and in peace with his friends after death just cause on her own selfish desires.
