If you see my score I gave it a 7. I really wanted to give it a 9 but those last four episodes nearly destroyed me. It even had a very entraining dub too.

Anyway why does this series, not just the anime but the series in general get so much hate? I find it to be somewhat unjust and base off poor assumptions.

Many people I have seen thinks the show is trying to Game of Thrones. When my counter to that is," Uh....don't you like it in a shouen when no one is untouchable and anyone can die at any minute?" Granted Tatsumi did do an asspull near the end of the series. He even died...even if his death was bleh. I like how this show makes it clear what the stakes are and does a good job of flushing everyone out before killing them.

Another complaint I hear is people think the fanbase for this show just like it because of the blood and gore. Well....I think you already know my counter to that. I know the fanabse for this show is above that and we actually really like how they built the world gave us our two groups. It really made you care about everyone at the end of the day. They also caught the atmosphere of war really good really well showing how crazy people get during war.

Anyway what do you guys think? I don't think Akame Ga Kill is the best series ever but it is one of the few anime of the 2010s I'll put in my top 15 or 20 list if I did one for the 2010 year of anime.

Studio Trigger is like that food you always want but hate when it is sold out in the stores. That's how good Studio Trigger is.

The reason why Akame ga Kill is hated is mostly because fanboys hyped the shit of it before the airing of the show, calling the series a masterpiece, a mature, serious shonen very similar to Game of Thrones... when at the end it turned to be a decent at best shonen, with simple characters who dies like fodders for shock value, poor worldbuilding, without being mature at all (the comedy of the series is awful) and with a bullshit ending.

Was something similar to SAO, but on an smaller scale.

Becausse people like to use "edgy" and other buzzwords as much as possible.

I love it... though the ending episode was quite "eh", so I gave it a 9.

As for why it is hated... probably because of how the show try to combine the elements of a typical shounen anime with *edgy* shit. I mean, that's basically what the complaints about this show boils down to.

They were not as bad as SAO fans, but they still overrate the series too much compared of how Akame ga Kill really is.

I see well I won't overhype it like that .I just feel this is just another case of the younger generation shooting off at the mouth.

idk probably bc it's shit

I absolutely abhor Akame ga Kill for countless reason
for one, all the characters are trash. it never gives you enough time to even care about any of the characters and they all just drop like flies

and I think the show failed stylistically as well
the characters have the most generic designs and they couldnt even make their outfits look cool; unlike in HxH or Jojo where the oddlooking characters feel like they belong in the show because of either the style or vibe the show gives off, in Akame ga Kill and Mirai Nikki, it just feels completely outta place and unnecasary

there are many other reasons I hate AgK too but these are just the main ones

@ilovewendy16 it's because it's violent rite?

Because it's just not good...? It can be mindless fun but if you don't turn your brain off while watching you'll certainly notice the lack of quality. Combined with its hardcore fans who claim it to be a masterpiece I can definitely understand why there's so much hate surrounding this Anime.

Any anime which is popular but has a few issues gets hate. If it was a niche show I'm pretty sure you'd see people praising it as underrated instead.

It's just whining.

When popularity doesn't match up with the quality expected by some then they do that. The remainder of that hate comes from the bandwagon effect.

Thanks for informing him.

LOL I actually really like their character designs a lot. I also argue that for the most part they do make you care about the characters before they die. Though there a few deaths that piss me off. Bulat death made me the most mad since it was just a crappy way to push Tatsumi. I really majority of my problems with the show would be fixed if Tatsumi was killed off earlier. The creator did his damnest to make him boring in both design and action. Another death would have to be Mine since I felt she was fine after killing that one captain. So I'm like, "WTF? You have no injuries on you. You are fine."

But deaths like Bols and Chelsea really worked for me because there is a clear reason why both of them died. They also did a good job of renewing the resolve of Nightraid by using Chelesa's death. So all in all, the show can do some good.

@Olrox: LOL Hey it's cool man. I'm not one of those guys. I was about to become one if it ended at episode 20. I really felt they should have done a fuck you go read the manga ending. I usually hate it in my anime but it would have worked here.

Wow...you sum up the hate train of any anime release in the 2010s and has a following.

while I do agree to an extent that Bols' death was sad, he barely had any character development which really didnt do anything for me at all

It's like I somehow triggered you.....

Alright Mr Grumpy. After checking the definition I found out that I used the word wrong. A more accurate statement would be that "if it was less popular I'm pretty sure you'd see people praising it as underrated instead." Happy now?

I'm not even such a fan of it but how is the story unoriginal? How are all the characters generic too? I'd understand if you complained about them being 2-dimensional but they're fairly different from most, if not all other shounen casts.

Well, it's sad that Whitefox killed any continuation of Akame ga Kill in anime form by having its own ending, so if you want the source original route, you'll have to read the manga.

Other than that, I actually enjoyed Akame ga Kill.

Not true. I just remember there being a time where Akame Ga Kill took a sudden turn in comparison to what the manga was about. I don't want to continue explaining a topic I know little about, try using google and seeing for yourself. o.o

The anime diverges around ep 19/20 as the manga wasn't (and still isn't) complete.

Yeah I heard Akamae ga kill caught up with the manga and White Fox...just ruin it.

I swear sometimes these manga creators work so slow.

Had Akame Ga Kill been an anime that ended up rated in the 6.9 zone due to being underwatched then it'd have almost no hater base as well as a small dedicated fan base with almost no one to question their show.

This isn't a matter of whether or not the show is bad/deserving of its popularity. It's a case of how the exposure caused by its popularity makes a hater base for it. That's pretty much how Concrete Revolution passed through last Fall. Rather than being seen as "that overrated anime" it'd have the image of "that underwatched show that isn't a masterpiece but is alright".

People don't have hater bases for stuff like Mayoiga or Rail Wars.

youre not completely wrong but youre not right either. it could really swing either way; for example, not many people have heard of Trapeze but nigh everyone whos seen it, either really liked it, or thought it was well above standard

not many watched Luluco and it isnt considered to be anyhting, really

Concrete Revolutio was recieved quite well since it was a fresh take on something not commonly see in anime, or so Ive heard

also, lol Mayoiga has quite the hatedom and not so much with Rail Wars bc of its obscurity but those whove seen dont like it very much

ConRev? Received well? By who?

http://blog.honeyfeed.fm/overall-popularity-rankings-for-fall-2015-anime-japan-poll/ - it was last in this poll

http://www.otakuusamagazine.com/LatestNews/News1/Japanese-Fans-Rank-The-Best-Fall-2015-Anime-So-Far-7037.aspx - didn't even come top 20 in this one.

And falls under the "crap anime" zone in Mal. Few people hyped it and I only remember RainyRai and Fai praising it continuously.

Also whether or not it can be applied in both ways doesn't matter. The point is that exposure attracts negative attention. The anime might have problems but hater bases can only be really be noticed (or in fact, be created) with popular anime. Otherwise the thousands of even worse stuff should be posted around the forums as people release their rage. This isn't about quality.

Look at Evangelion. It's better than Mayoiga and Railwars but it's hater base is larger than that of the two combined. Heck look at Code Geass. It's exposure means that people put it under a magnifying glass to see what all the fuss is about and when they're disappointed they get pissed off at all the undeserved hype.

Every anime suffers under exposure. That's why you can see someone rating Absolute Duo higher than Evangelion with Evangelion being rated a 2 out of pure spite.

I see now
so what youre complaining is indeed not the 'whines' of people who hate on popular shows
but the centre of the hate itself: hype culture

Source readers hated it the moment it deviated.

I started to notice it wasn't a good fit to the media when the Professor attacked their hideout.

I guess watching and reading have different measures of pacing.

http://www.otakuusamagazine.com/LatestNews/News1/Japanese-Fans-Rank-The-Best-Fall-2015-Anime-So-Far-7037.aspx - didn't even come top 20 in this one.

And falls under the "crap anime" zone in Mal. Few people hyped it and I only remember RainyRai and Fai praising it continuously.

Also whether or not it can be applied in both ways doesn't matter. The point is that exposure attracts negative attention. The anime might have problems but hater bases can only be really be noticed (or in fact, be created) with popular anime. Otherwise the thousands of even worse stuff should be posted around the forums as people release their rage. This isn't about quality.

Look at Evangelion. It's better than Mayoiga and Railwars but it's hater base is larger than that of the two combined. Heck look at Code Geass. It's exposure means that people put it under a magnifying glass to see what all the fuss is about and when they're disappointed they get pissed off at all the undeserved hype.

Every anime suffers under exposure. That's why you can see someone rating Absolute Duo higher than Evangelion with Evangelion being rated a 2 out of pure spite.
I see now
so what youre complaining is indeed not the 'whines' of people who hate on popular shows
but the centre of the hate itself: hype culture


I'm not really complaining but yeah. That's just how things are. Popularity generally means an anime gets examined more.

People just hating things because they are popular. Man they gotta grow up. I get like this when anime fans watch some of the newer cartoons and judge them criticlaly since they are not "Deep" like their favorite anime.
Studio Trigger is like that food you always want but hate when it is sold out in the stores. That's how good Studio Trigger is.

They were not as bad as SAO fans, but they still overrate the series too much compared of how Akame ga Kill really is.
I see well I won't overhype it like that .I just feel this is just another case of the younger generation shooting off at the mouth.
While is true that sometimes the hate can get excesive, saying things of a series who are not true is a very dangerous move, since expectations are very risky in some cases.

If you see my score I gave it a 7. I really wanted to give it a 9 but those last four episodes nearly destroyed me. It even had a very entraining dub too.

Anyway why does this series, not just the anime but the series in general get so much hate? I find it to be somewhat unjust and base off poor assumptions.

Many people I have seen thinks the show is trying to Game of Thrones. When my counter to that is," Uh....don't you like it in a shouen when no one is untouchable and anyone can die at any minute?" Granted Tatsumi did do an asspull near the end of the series. He even died...even if his death was bleh. I like how this show makes it clear what the stakes are and does a good job of flushing everyone out before killing them.

Another complaint I hear is people think the fanbase for this show just like it because of the blood and gore. Well....I think you already know my counter to that. I know the fanabse for this show is above that and we actually really like how they built the world gave us our two groups. It really made you care about everyone at the end of the day. They also caught the atmosphere of war really good really well showing how crazy people get during war.

Anyway what do you guys think? I don't think Akame Ga Kill is the best series ever but it is one of the few anime of the 2010s I'll put in my top 15 or 20 list if I did one for the 2010 year of anime.
I believe the two biggest reasons Akame Ga Kill gets hate is it's constant shit writing of the characters by Takahiro.

You don't get enough development time with these characters to even care if they get killed off or not. The only character I've heard people caring about was either Akame or Tatsumi, but still even then, it felt rushed.

I've made posts on the discussion boards saying "I hope this character survives" or whatever, but I'm just done to be brutally honest.

The anime seems like it was a huge spoiler for the manga, considering the interview with the manga artist - He said that they had to take the ending and merge it into what they had so it would even have an ending. If you want the link to the Q&A its on a discussion board on the Wikia.

FanFiction get's a whole lot of hate, but I firmly believe that fan-works are much better then Akame Ga Kill.(Of course if you filter out all the shit written smut for making characters have sex).

Akame Ga Kill just felt rushed and had no character development IMO.

The reason why Akame ga Kill is hated is mostly because fanboys hyped the shit of it before the airing of the show, calling the series a masterpiece, a mature, serious shonen very similar to Game of Thrones... when at the end it turned to be a decent at best shonen, with simple characters who dies like fodders for shock value, poor worldbuilding, without being mature at all (the comedy of the series is awful) and with a bullshit ending.

Was something similar to SAO, but on an smaller scale.

I agree with this. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I followed the hype and I was really excited about it but then... it was just terrible.

I enjoyed the first half but idk that second half was ... pretty boring and bad if i remember correctly.

When it was airing i was just thinking ''alright, who's going to die this episode uh ?'' ''oh, so its this guy. well rip i guess''

Oh no it was dude. Not going to your spoiler outloud.

From what I'm gathering here is that the creator loves death themes and having characters be sad to a level that is on par with J.K. Rowling. I will never get that with some authors.

Well, I missed the hype since I stay well away from reviews etc. until I am done watching.

If I was to sum up how I feel, it was a fairly average shonen with the violence of a seinen . I don't mind characters dropping left, right and centre. But if you are trying to make each day an emotional one, then the characters need to be given more development and/or better written scenes, and comic relief needs to be timed more carefully. Also - though this is a minor thing I won't count against the show - I think that they should've picked another title. I like that they didn't give the title character all the spotlight, but in the end, there was little about Akame that screams "title character".

Anyway I didn't hate it. If I went with my guts (without getting too analytical, I'd probably give the show a 6.5).

I'm in that range too. I like the characters but they could have executed better. I still think Black Critic Guy is an idiot for giving this a perfect score.

Reasons:
1. Right after an emotional scene adding sapsticj humor makes the audience feel dumb, it just an awful idea
2. The characters are all one dimensional and archetypes
3.we always hear about "the village and the capital" but nothing is really explained
4. Tons of plotholes
