Synopsis

The ruthless Minister Honest exploits the ignorance of a new young Emperor and deviously rules the country from the shadows with twisted morals and no regard for human life. As a result of this, an epidemic of crime and corruption has spread throughout the country's capital city, and a state of society ensues where the privileged have absolute domination over the lesser.

However, there exists an organization to combat this rife abuse of power: Night Raid, a secret division of the oppositionary Revolutionary Army. It is composed of a small team of ruthless assassins who murder all those who partake in or turn a blind eye to the Empire's outrageous wrongdoings.

Tatsumi is a naïve, sword-wielding young man on a journey to save his impoverished village. Soon, he witnesses the bloody horrors and cruelty of the capital firsthand. Overcome with hatred, Tatsumi is swayed by Night Raid's profound cause and decides to join them, embarking on a painful and dangerous mission to exact revenge on Minister Honest. Tatsumi gains many invaluable experiences as he unravels the ethics of conflicting ideologies, life and death, all while working toward the restoration of a humane world.

I see that there is no review of the complete work, warning there will be spoilers.
I started this manga a while ago, the anime didn't do it justice sadly.
However the heart-wrenching story that has become one of my favorite is truly underrated.
The plot begins with a young man named Tatsumi who travels to the capital to earn riches in order to assure his village doesn't starve. He then learns how corrupted the world is when he ventures out into the capital. After a series of unfortunate events he joins a group called Night Raid. They are assassins working with the revolutionary army looking to read more

"Akame ga Kill" is perhaps one of the more gory and dark mangas I have read up to date. With basically GoT styled killing of characters, this shounen turns into a bloody manga in the end.

Mild Spoilers Beware~~~~~~~

Story:
The story itself starts out pretty promising, with Tatsumi joining the Night Raid, determined to exterminate all evil from the Empire. Then you get introduced to Teigus, 48 powerful weapons. The plot isn't too dull or cliche for the most part as with "death flags" basically every fucking chapter and everywhere, characters seemed to be dying once per few chapters. Towards the end tho, more weird ass evil read more

Blood and sadistic. Those two words could explain this anime. The anime is highly overrated but hype in mid-late 2014. Tetsuya Tashiro who became a social media talk because of the animation featuring sadism, some of the characters who are always killed, and moe but soulless killer. If associated with the anime “Attack on Titan” may be practically the same degree of sadism. But, story level might be better “Akame ga Kill!” than “Attack on Titan.” But, I will not review the anime. I will review the manga.

So, why am I not reviewing the anime? Why must the manga? Because the anime and manga are read more

The beginning of the manga is litteraly the same as the anime, but I really liked the ending.
I don't want to spoil the story so I'm not going to talk about it.
The ending of the manga is really another thing compared to the anime.
That was one of the main reasons I liked the manga.
I'm not an expert in ''arts'' of mangas, but I can say that it looked relatively good.
Especially the eyes of ''the bad guys'' when they're pissed off.
My favourite character was, of course, the main character: Tatsumi.
I really liked how the ending finished for him unlike the one in the anime.
He made me read more
